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.

The London Super Comics Convention was the first comic convention I've attended in many, many years, and aside from the Stan Lee panel appearance (Where he proved he can still work a room like few others, even if the less than ideal acoustics meant that every question had to be repeated to him by the chap sitting next to him) Artists Alley was the place I'd be found.

Not exclusively Robin but.... )

Jerry Robinson has today passed away. Though it was often disputed he's best know for being the creator or co-creator of the Joker. But regardless his work and part in the creation of the Bat Mythos is the stuff of legend today. Needless to say he's one of DC's greats.

And of course as having created the Joker he made a character almost as world renowned as Batman and Robin themselves.

Thanks to Jerry Robinson Joker's existed for so long that much like Batman he's been used in a number of ways. Thus I have to say my favorite shall always be of what if the Joker were a hero from The Search for Ray Palmer: Crime Society as we meet the Jokester of Earth-3. I've seen Jerry at a couple of New York comic conventions, I was hoping one day to get him to sign my page from this issue, but alas that time has passed.

In case anyone was still under the impression that Adam Beechen bothers to understand the basic properties of the characters he chooses to write, here is another example that may help to disabuse you of that notion.
