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 )

IGN Comics: Are there any plans for you to write Wonder Woman down the road?

Pfeifer: It'd be interesting. I might actually be doing an issue or two that sort of ties in with Amazons Attack. I'm not quite sure when they'll be scheduled, but there have been some talks. These series are so tightly tied that maybe I'll take a crack at it. I'm not sure how that affects Jodi's schedule. I'm certainly not replacing her on the book, but there's been some talk of maybe me doing an issue or two. That'd be fun. It's certainly a high profile book, and a DC book that has been appearing since the early forties. It's always fun to take on those iconic characters.

I am a huge fan of Supergirl, always have been, but Kara Zor-El has had a rough time finding her place both in the comics canon, and on screen. Her much maligned 1984 movie is often cited as the reason Hollywood has no faith in superheroines. I think the film, while flawed, is not as bad as it's made out to be, and I quite enjoy it, but that's another story.

Likewise the first 33 issues of her solo series after her reintroduction were uneven at best, and downright horrible at worst thanks to her (editorially mandated?) on again off again grimdark past, and anger management issues stemming there from. Stalkerish boyfriends, the inability to keep any supporting cast members past the very brief stays of each creative team, and oh yeah need I remind you of the time she tried to cure cancer?

I'm so psyched to see (admittedly overlong) trailer for her new CBS series which promises a fun tone, and a great ride.

So let's celebrate with the issue where Sterling Gates came on the book and established a new tone for the character, that made her book a joy to read again, a fact which in my opinion, has remained true to this very day even if Sterling's continuity is gone.

"Free of the reign of Telos, a pantheon of heroes unite at last in an effort to defend their collective cities – but they did not count on the threat of Deimos, who suddenly seems to possess the power to tear the Multiverse apart at the seams! "

This is an exceptional piece of news which I would normally post on noscansdaily, but I think this deserves a post based on the promo piece just released by WB and DC and which DOES include what looks to be the new look for a series of picture books and hopefully comics too!

FINALLY some recognition that young girls can be superhero fans too! )

The audience's attitudes towards certain subjects change as time progresses, so what might seem harmless or even amusing to a past audience comes across as offensive or even creepy by one of today! So, I thought that I'd gather up a few for your perusal.*

*Note: This isn't meant to make light of what they're doing or who they're doing it to, but rather pointing out how unpleasant and strange it is that SUPERHEROES are the ones doing it.
