*DC's Rebirth JLA/Watchmen event, #6 of 7, last pages:

Doctor Manhattan disintegrates a downed Superman...but nothing happens. When the blue light clears, someone stands between them, chowing a carrot.

And then Batman's secret-weapon, final-plan savior turns out to be Bugs Bunny. Cliffhanger.

Also, in another separate idea that also reads like fever dream babbling, this fun little mini. Check it!

Final page, splash panel: "What's Up, Doc?" )

According to stuff, the Dominators are the villains for this CW season's Arrow/Flash/Legends/Supergirl crossover. I haven't read any mainstream stories with them, but here's one about them from the DCAU.

Featuring: democracy in the face of intergalactic racists, Green Lantern incapable of number comparison, and Phonetically Adorbs Missile Firing Noises! Not featured: the absence of a "Mr. Lau from The Dark Knight" reference.

I don't normally post political cartoons, but this one is, I hope you'll agree, especially relevant to this community for more than one reason. It's from the blog of Brian Fies, creator of the graphic novels Mom's Cancer and Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow?

For Batman Day, here are some Batman pages. The first group covers some of Bruce Wayne's troubled mind, the second and third deal with his troubled "friendship" with other superheroes.

Cowards die a thousand times, but the valiant taste of death but once...except in comics, where you get resurrected into (hopefully) better things. Screw you, Shakespeare.

Anyway, here's Maxima's death from the Superman event, "Our Worlds At War" - written by Mark Schultz, and drawn by Doug Mahnke. More after the cut!

"It's one thing to stand up for the right thing, and it's another thing to teach your kid to stand up for the right thing. It's harder. They see through, they know the truth, they're there all the time. They ask hard questions. And it makes you examine your own self. I know as a father, I think about that all the time, about what our kids will think of us, and how we always have this little person watching.

For Superman, you would think that would come easily or naturally, but part of what we're exploring is that although he's not technically human, he actually is human like us. Being a dad isn't a superpower. He's a dad just like everybody else. He's trying to figure this out, just like anybody else.

Whether you've had a dad or been a father, you can probably understand or relate.

"What Pat and I loved doing on Batman and Robin, we want to do it here, with Superman and Jonathan, but explore the father-son dynamic from a whole different angle, because Bruce and Clark are very different people. And Damian and Jonathan are incredibly different characters.

So we've got a story that's right in our wheelhouse now, to explore the father-son relationship for this first arc.

And as Pat said, we're really playing with it from the eyes of a child, looking up at a father, who is someone he loves, but at the same time is a superhero, is an incredibly powerful being. And we'll be showing how Jonathan deals with that.

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. )

JLA #22 has the JLA fighting Starro the Conqueror, called "It." Half the team fight It in the real world, while Superman, Green Lantern/Kyle Rayner and Wonder Woman/ Queen Hippolyta fight It in the dream world. Without their powers.
