Superman + Wonder Woman = <3 In ‘Justice League’ #12 [Kissy Kissy]
By Andy Khouri
DC Comics has announced via its sister company Entertainment Weekly that a future issue of Justice League will see Superman and Wonder Woman begin a super romance. The move is in contrast to how the heroes have traditionally been portrayed, with Superman paired with Terran female Lois Lane and Wonder Woman with puny humans Batman or Steve Trevor, but of course those and numerous other pieces of DC lore were thrown out when the line rebooted almost a year ago. Writer Geoff Johns told EW that the development is not intended as merely a temporary attention-grabber but rather a substantive change to the ongoing characterization of the popular heroes, with artist Jim Lee adding, “Hopefully this will raise a lot of eyebrows. We welcome the watercooler chatter.”
A romantic relationship between Wonder Woman and Superman is not without precedent. The couple notably got it super-on in Kingdom Come and The Dark Knight Strikes Again, but both of those stories are considered non-canonical in spite of the fact that they’ve been read by vastly more people than the overwhelming majority of every canonical Superman Wonder Woman story ever published.
But August’s Justice League #12 is part of DC’s New 52 initiative, which last year voided official Superman and Wonder Woman continuity and with it both characters’ long established relationships with their previous partners. This is a fact seemingly lost to a number of DC readers, who’ve already begun tearing their virtual hair out over this announcement on Twitter and elsewhere in response to Johns’ remark, “This is the new status quo.”
Ehhh…. I’ve always been a fan of the WW/Batman pairing myself (thanks to Justice League Animated).
I downloaded this from the Marvel app today, and it is awesome! It’s a great short-story that gives a lot more insight to Barton’s character.
Honestly, I probably wouldn’t have picked this up, but the Avengers fandom on Tumblr, and Gingerhaze’s fanart, has maybe me love these characters.
I want more stories about their day-to-day happenings. :)
Christian Bale was in Aurora today visiting victims of Friday’s movie theater shooting.
Yeah, it’s nice that Bruce Wayne showed up, but that jerk Batman’s totally a no-show.

Lucy Knisley its an incredible comic artist who occasionally makes these Travelogues about her journeys. With my road trip to LA coming up, I want to make something similar. The video above explains what travelogues are, and her process on how she makes them.
The real question is, do you want to start a webcomic because you love making comics, or are you in it for the babes and piles of money?
You have to be in it for the babes and piles of money. That is the only reason to do it. “Liking comics” is not a good reason to start a webcomic.
Everyday of my life.

YES YES YES YES!!! I need this family in my life.
So I’m got some good news. The delinquent tenants at my Mom and I’s apartment are finally moving out by the 1st, and will be up for sale. :D I’m excited about this.
But! In the meantime, while the place is on the market, my Mom and I will covering the full costs of the mortgage. So to help offset that, I’m selling some of my old comics and manga on eBay. It’s mostly old Pokemon, Ranma 1/2, & Cardcaptor Sakura. There’s a few Marvel & DC comics in there too (someone gave them them to my mom a long time ago).
I’m hoping to make some more Candi prints and another poster as well. My budget’s gonna be a bit tighter for bit (hopefully not too long), but I’m thrilled that there’s a chance I’ll be free of that apartment.
