A few weeks ago, friend Benito Cereno put out this challenge of an all-female, 7-member Justice League. When I did those “My 5 favorite X-Men” and “My 5 favorite Avengers” pieces a while ago I mentioned I probably wouldn’t do one for the Justice League because I didn’t think it would be that interesting, but I liked this twist. So, based on my initial picks, I used these as my warm-ups for the last few weeks. I can’t remember which order I did them in, but somewhere around Hawkgirl I just decided to do whatever I wanted design-wise instead of sticking to canon.

I would read the crap out of this book!

We only catch glimpses of it in the film, but here you can watch French actress Maïwenn Besco’s entire green screen rendition of the Diva Dance Opera performance from The Fifth Element, in all its arm-flapping glory.

Happy Batman Day!  World’s Finest Comic Blog The Beat gives the World’s Finest Comic Breakdown of what makes the Dark Knight so special.

Today is Batman Day. It is also Comic-Con week, meaning that local newscasts all over the country will end their broadcasts with “It’s Comic-Con week!” and proceed to show B-roll of cosplayers and grown men dressed like Doctor Who.

But look closely at that footage. There in the back, you will see someone dressed like Batman or Batgirl. And you’ll say “Cool.” After the horrible real news on every given day, Sailor Moon costumes eventually look silly. But not Batman. He has power over all the others. Why? Why did five-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott dress up as “Batkid” last November in San Francisco? Because he wanted to hit something.

Batman is the most popular superhero in America. We may guess (or even hope) that it is Superman, but Batman comics, movies, toys, and t-shirts now outsell all the others. “Grim vigilante of the night” now trumps “Truth, Justice, and the American Way.”  Whether it is crime, character, or cancer, the truth of Batman is simple.

We all want to hit something.

After many years, the old subway-level entrance to the Hotel Knickerbocker remains, sealed tight. What was on the other side? Now we know.

M.L.B. to Honor Glenn Burke as a Gay Pioneer in Baseball

The league has invited Burke’s family to Tuesday’s All-Star Game in Minneapolis — its first official recognition of his early role in a movement gaining traction across the sports landscape.

Everyone in the world should be reading the webcomic Bad Machinery by John Allison (scarygoround). Everyone. Period. Why aren’t you?  It’s flat-out brilliant. 

It is the highlight of my day, every day, and if you won’t take my word for it, comics Mad History Genius Kate Beaton (beatonna) is reblogging this rave review by womenwriteaboutcomics and that should be good enough for you.

I really love John Allison’s Tackleford tales and I wrote a bit about why, specifically “reviewing” The Case of the Team Spirit, the first volume of Bad Machinery, published by Oni Press
