Batwoman And Maggie Sawyer Romance In DC’s Crimes Of Passion

It might be safe to say that the most popular LGBTQ couple in mainstream comics is Batwoman and Maggie Sawyer. Okay there is the on again - off again relationship with Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, but people genuinely miss Batwoman and Maggie Sawyer. They were engaged and suddenly DC Editorial passed a blanket edict that none of their heroes were going to be married. As everyone knows, that ruling changed some time ago, which is perfect for their Valentine's Day special, Crimes of Passion.

Fan Theory That Doesn’t Matter With The Legion Of Super-Heroes

I came to this particular Legion fan theory while listening to the Legion of Substitute Podcasters talk about the "Five Years Later" Legion. Fan Theories are something that gets really interesting as we have the natural wait between issues or episodes.  I recall a scene later in the 5YL series where Chlorophyll Kid mentions that the Dominators' technology is plant-based. That brings to mind the first appearance of the Subs and what ever was up with the alien invasion that they thwarted.

Tales From The Dark Multiverse: The Judas Contract – Review

The Judas Contract is one of those super-hero stories that consistently make the list of best comic stories of all time. It's amazing that it really hasn't seen a lot of alternate ending tales. Of course, it gets adapted into animation. With DC Comics suddenly embracing the concept of a multiverse, it has finally happened.

OMAC: One Man Army Corps #1 – Reviews Of Old Comics

I’ve been meaning to do this one for a while. First, my pointless boycott of John Byrne’s work got in the way, but now that we’re past that, I think I can review a John Byrne comic that’s out of print. I had actually been hoping for it to be included on DC Universe. They’ve

Legion Lost #1 – Reviews Of Old Comics

With a new Legion of Super-Heroes series launching the week that I'm writing this, it seems like a perfect time to revisit one of my favorite Legion stories of all time, Legion Lost. I like it so much that it would be my pick for a Legion film adaptation. I'll come back to that. As the millennium came to a close, Legion of Super-Heroes was in dire need of a new direction. They were referred to as the "Archie Legion" due to the more light-hearted and innocent nature of the stories. Of course, this was stark contrast to the last major new direction for the Legion with the start of the "Five Years Later." This version kept up two series, which probably didn't help in the late 1990s when the tone of comics went darker and grimmer. As the series came to an end, the Legion faced a terrible threat that apparently killed several members.

Tales From The Dark Multiverse:The Death Of Superman #1 – Review

Tales From The Dark Multiverse:The Death Of Superman #1 is the latest building off of the success of the Batman Who Laughs. These comic series' names are getting too long. While the premise is a "dark" multiverse, what we have laid out is a series of alternate earths that are just as viable as any in the "regular" multiverse.

The Internet blew up recently when Tony Isabella posted to Facebook that he doesn't care for Batman. It's an opinion I've heard before, but not by someone that actually has worked on super-hero comics.
