Jason's Picks: The Next Generation of Heroes

When Robin burst onto his first cover of Detective Comics, DC showed that its universe was ready to change and evolve with the dynamics of their characters. Legacy is an important theme that runs throughout the DC Universe, and one we’ve discussed here in this column before. Still, it’s such an important theme that to kick off 2018, I’m picking three collections that will be released this month that I think you will not only enjoy, but feature the legacy of the DC Universe.

DC Comics Art Academy Featuring Bernard Chang (2017)

Welcome to the DC Comics Art Academy, a series of art tutorials recorded at Comic-Cons featuring many of the gifted and unique artists working for DC today. In today's installment, Bernard Chang (Nightwing, Batman Beyond) draws Terry McGinnis while answering questions about how he started drawing comics, where he gets his inspiration, and why he finds layouts to be the most challenging part of drawing comics...and the most fun.

To see more from Bernard, check out his work in Nightwing #35: https://www.readdcentertainment.com/Nightwing-2016-35/digital-comic/T1615300355001?ref=c2l0ZS9saXN0L2Rlc2t0b3AvZ3JpZExpc3QvSXNzdWVz

Who is Batman's Greatest Legacy?

I kid you not when I confess that Robin has been, and always will be, my favorite comic book character of all time. In the same way that I love the idea of Alfred as Bruce’s surrogate parent in the wake of Thomas and Martha’s death, I adore even more that Bruce turned around and accidentally found himself the adopted parent (sometimes legally, sometimes spiritually), of a gaggle of wayward children. I have a vested interest in the power of Batman’s legacy and which of Batman’s sidekicks turned out to be the biggest success.

Titans: Do It for the Annual

If you read this site a lot you might already know this about me, but in the interest of full disclosure: I 100% absolutely adore everything about any possible variation of the Teen Titans and have been utterly enthralled with TITANS in its Rebirth incarnation.

Need proof? You can find my review of the first volume right here.
