Move Over Jay-Z & Beyonce!!!

DC Comics‘ “NEW 52” just keeps getting better and better!  Yesterday (#NewComicWed) Justice League #12 was released!  Written by Geoff Johns & Penciled by my ALL TIME FAVORITE Jim Lee!  It was a Historic issue, of which I bought 2 (one for Preservation & one for the road) because this is the first time Superman has a NEW Love Interest!  This moment does not sit well with some, but as for me & my house…I think it’s LONG over due.  I can remember as a child thinking, “Why aren’t Superman & Wonder Woman a Couple?”  I mean Lois is cool, but she’s too much Drama.  I’ve always Identified with Superman & his Relationship with Lois, because it’s how I feel when trying to find Compatibility with women.  A Wonder Woman is Rare.  But THIS…THIS is the Ultimate “Power Couple!”

  1. I agree, the New 52 keeps getting better and better. Titles like Blue Beetle and Animal Man are pure awesomeness each month.
    What makes Animal Man so special is the way Lemire deconstructs the superhero mythology. For example:
    1) Superheroes tend to monopolize the attention of the reader, while Animal Man is constantly upstaged by the supporting characters of the series.
    2) Superhero comics usually don’t give much importance to the private life of their main character (they tend to focus only on the “costume on” part); in Animal Man, on the contrary, the private life of Buddy is the main theme of the series. In fact, it is rather infrequent to see Buddy with his costume on.
    3) Buddy is not perfect, and is not perceived as perfect by other people: in fact, in the 11th issue, when he tells his wife “It’s going to be okay”, she replies “Don’t give me anything of that superhero crap, Buddy.” That cut and thrust perfectly enlightens the philosophy of the series.
