Jeff Lemire plus Terry and Rachel Dodson revealed a cave painting foreshadowing the future of the Earth One graphic novels, but I need help naming two Titans in it. Has anyone read this?

Now, I think I've been very restrained for the most part of late, with a distinct lack of chronically imperilled acrobatic heroes, more or less.

Time to sort of remedy that with some scans from a book I found yesterday which was an impulse purchase and not a bad one at that, It's a hardback book called "The World According to the Joker" (There's also one called "The World According to Batman" which I didn't pick up)

It's a glimpse into the Jokers head-space as part of a series of psychological examinations by Dr Arkham

It goes as well as you might expect )

I'm a little more generous to the New-52 than some other fans, there are a lot of books I've enjoyed, including Wonder Woman, but one thing I have not been able to forgive is making Diana the daughter of Zeus. Of course Azzarello and Jim Lee had their reasons for doing so, as stated in this article:



“She’s going to learn she’s not who she was told she was,” Azzarello told the Post. “Everybody’s got a father, even if he’s not the nicest guy in the world.”

DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee told the Post that rewriting the character’s origins to make her the offspring of two parents rather than, say, sand could make Wonder Woman accessible to many readers. “In this case, making her a god actually makes her more human, more relatable,” said Lee.


I reject that reasoning... first off I question why in a universe where there are a number of last of their kind aliens, demons, and immortals we read about that a woman forged from clay is such a stretch. The two largest religions in the world share a creation story where a man was formed from dust, and his wife from his rib.

Never mind the "everyone has got a father," thing while true from a biological perspective (depending on how you define father), does not necessarily play into the life of every person raised by a same-sex couple, or single parent.

And most importantly, it undermines a parallel to Greek Myth and the origin of Pandora in Hessiod's Works and Days. More on that

No spoilers yonder for Batman #37 (BECAUSE SH*T WENT DOWN, YO), but there is one nice little callback from Death of the Family, showing how much ol' Mister J loves setting up his punchlines.


Also could someone loan this Joker a wig? )

When last we left our silver-locked heroine, she was trying to grapple with some mysterious life-altering event that happened over the summer, while working on maintaining her relationship with her (ex-?) boyfriend's little sister.

But there are also other people to relate to (or not)! They shall be found below. )

Writers: Becky Cloonan & Brenden Fletcher

I've been following the new digital Sensation Comics, and thought I'd share some of the stories so far. Three stories below, around 6 1/2 pages each of 20-page stories.
