Every other month, we have Mariko Tamaki day, where both Hulk and Supergirl: Being Super are released. That is my favourite new comics day. As a community, we've already covered in depth that Hulk is bloody good, but Being Super seems to have flown under the radar.

Another title for it could be Supergirl: Secret Identity*, or Supergirl: Girl of Steel. It's "retelling her origin for a new generation" but I'm not sure which continuity it fits into, if any. Each issue is a 48 page prestige issue and when it's all said and done, I'm buying the trade as well.

Before we get in to the story, know that it's bloody beautiful. Art is covered by Joelle Jones, who I adored when I first saw her in 2006's 12 Reasons Why I Love Her and followed her to Minx's Token. Since then she's done work at Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and her own series Lady Killer has taken off and Jones has become much, much better. There are jaw dropping, heart stopping splash pages in this book. But that's for another time.

Right now, I'm going to share a short flashback, as an aside from the main story. Being super )

*If you haven't read it, you are doing Superman wrong.
** But not rubbish. Actually, watching that trailer made me annoyed that we didn't get more of beardy Clark travelling the world, looking for his place in it.

Here's another actually decent Diana moment! This time, it's about overcoming loss and the nature of grief, courtesy of the ragtag creative team behind DC Bombshells, whom should probably get a Sensation Comics monthly! (We do have Action and Detective, after all.)

Plus, Wonder Woman muses (weirdly) on the afterlife. Check it!

This is one of those covers that I've seen several times floating around the internet, and for good reason - it's Supergirl and Zatanna fighting over a yeti. It's one of those bizarre Bronze Age covers that does its job of making you wonder what the hell is going on. Did someone hit Supergirl and Zatanna with a love spell? Does the yeti himself have love powers? Do Kara and Zatanna both have a very specific fetish (no judgment)?

The answer, a more legible cover, and 7 pages of a 21 page story after the cut:Read more... )

Ah, Supergirl, along with Batgirl one of DC's most recognised B-List superheroes. Also one who has undergone a fair bit of revision over the years, sharing that category of character with Hawkman and Donna Troy for overcomplicated, contradictory backstories. But, to simplify things, I'll focus on Supergirl Classic, the Kara Zor-El version.

Lex's Supergirl Obsession



Lex (pre-flashpoint) once dated Matrix Supergirl when he was posing as his son in a younger body. Mostly to get at Superman it seems in the long run. When that went sour it seemed he had a passionate hate for any female who decided to wear the S shield. Once Linda had retired as Supergirl and Cir-El was out of the picture, Kara landed on earth and became Supergirl.

It begins with Supergirl and Streaky facing down a tornado that threatens Stanhope.

They find themselves transported a mysterious world where they have different powers.

So guess what I found, everyone?

As much as today's comics are rightfully lambasted for their persistent sexist under(and sometimes over-)tones, it speaks rather glowingly of social progress that even the openly misogynist comics fans (and creators) of today would probably shudder at some of the works of yesteryear. As none of the comics on that list appear to be inhabitants of scans_daily (this edition, at least; some of them had probably been posted before the Great Crash), I have taken it upon myself to torture entertain you all with them.

First up... The Brave and the Bold #63 by one Mr. Bob Haney, creator of the Teen Titans, technical creator of Wonder Girl, and one of the most batshit insane writers of the Silver/Bronze age. I can't be certain, but I think this was the first meeting between Supergirl and Wonder Woman (this was before The Brave and the Bold turned into Batman and His Amazing Friends); if true, both "Super-chicks" have my deepest sympathies. Worse, the cover is an insidious little piece: 100% accurate to the story, 0% indicative of the shitstorm of sexism we're all in for.



Warning: do not read while drinking fluids. I will not be held reponsible for getting you a new keyboard. )

So Sibohan as made her debut in the Supergirl TV show, and I am enjoying the character but with Supergirl's return to the mainstream DCU on the horizon I do hope we see more of the New 52 version, as I quite like her. Reposted from December 2014; here are some scans on how she met Supergirl.

it begins with issue 8 )

The first chapter of the digital first tie-in comic to the Supergirl TV series is out!!!



It begins with Kara musing that on Krypton violence was not the preferred means of solving problems, and so she never learned to fight.

Wherever Rampage is from seems to have a different attitude. )

I've mentioned this series in posts in the past, but it still seems relevant to the group, and to those looking for some actual female focussed superhero items for younger family members, or even for yourselves (I'm in no position to judge another person's toy collection heaven knows). The dolls and action figures have now been shown in packaging.

Well, I have a some nieces and a goddaughter or two who might enjoy these )
