bat_featured

Hope Larson has taken on a difficult task in writing Batgirl, and taking the book in a totally different direction from the wildly popular "Burnside" run by Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher, and Babs Tarr that ended prior to DC Rebirth.

Her first two issues, illustrated by Rafael Albuquerque, follow Barbara Gordon on a trip to Japan to meet an elderly female hero, and then to Singapore to study mixed martial arts.

The Best DC Comics For Young Readers [Kids’ Comics]

YADC

Superhero comic books are a great way to get kids of all ages reading, while teaching solid moral lessons and giving them something to aspire to. However, it can be difficult parsing which titles are suitable for kids and teens, and which titles most assuredly are not, so ComicsAlliance has put together a list of some of the best choices.

Today we're looking at DC Comics, which has been making increasing attempts to be more inclusive and provide a wider range of comics for all audiences over the past couple of years. Whether it's comics for fans of TV shows, new spins on classic franchises, or a Young Adult take on political satire, there's something for everyone these days at DC.

Tarr, Stewart and Fletcher Introduce the Batgirl of Burnside to the World of Funko Pop

DC Comics
DC Comics

When the first Funko Pop arrived in 2010, I don't think there was anyone not under the employ of the company that believed just a scant six years later, Funko would rule the world. Since the line's soft launch with Batman at San Diego Comic-Con back in 2010, Funko has exploded exponentially. I like to joke about how outrageous it is that these little bobbleheaded figures will outlast the human race, but that trivializes just how hard the company has worked to branch out and explore other avenues while Pops continue to dominate the toy landscape.

Funko Pops are such a big deal now that when a new character gets announced, it's reason for excitement. Such is the case today, as the creative team behind the Batgirl of Burnside era debuted the all-new Batgirl Pop, which is based on Babs Tarr's and Cameron Stewart's redesign.

Can Supergirl Save Us From Batman’s Fear Of Femininity?

joker-supergirl

Batman is a straight male power fantasy. His daylight veneer is one of a playboy billionaire. His nighttime identity is that of a sculpted superhero all clad in black. In either take, he is a masculine bulwark against the evil in Gotham — which is why his villains are so often feminine, queer, flamboyant, and robed in bright colors.

Hopefully Supergirl and National City can provide a more inclusive and subversive space for the feminine, the gender nonconforming, the queer. Kara is one of the few superheroes more often portrayed as feminine; she derives her strength equally from her own compassion as she does Earth’s yellow sun.
