This sums up perfectly why Batman needs a Robin.
With all apologies to Dr. Seuss, a poem for Mother’s Day for the Moms of DC Comics.
There are Moms who are Queens
and Moms who make you scream
There are Moms who run family and farm
And Moms who aren’t afraid to strong arm
There are Moms who are protective
Mega-fave for Dr. Seuss AND including the greatest DC Mother (and Father) of all: ALFRED.

Suddenly looking forward to this…
The new Valkyrie as designed by Mark Brooks.
Following up on the recent trend of great female costume redesigns, we have Valkyrie’s new look. And it’s gorgeous. I like how it incorporates modern details while maintaining that essential essence of the Norse mythos, AND just enough Kirby-ish highlights to polish off the design.
So yesterday, Kelly Thompson released an article for She Has No Head! where she discusses 6 recent Female Superhero costume designs that she feels are an improvement of what came prior.
Amongst the designs that were chosen was my Psylocke design, which is in the company of artists like …
Brilliant post on what really counts as a sexy costume. Agree on all points.
Also, round of applause for the new costume designs. Love them.
Last year one of the glass ceilings in superhero comics had a batarang thrown at it when Becky Cloonan became the first woman to draw an issue of Batman. The writing side of the Batman ceiling has had a few cracks in it through the years with Devin Grayson, Louise Simonson, Ann Nocenti and Christina Weir all having stints on Batman titles. Women writing Batman books, however, are still rare and a very small percentage of the writers in the Batman-writing world. But in July another female writer will join the ranks. Marguerite Bennet will be co-writing the Batman Annual #2 with Scott Snyder. Bennett, as she discusses below, joins James Tynion IV, who is writing Talon and Red Hood, as one of Scott Snyder’s students to pick up a gig at DC.
If anything, she clinched a buy from me when she said “I miss Cassandra Cain.”
We see some great things here at the White House every day, and sharing that stuff with you is one of the best parts of our jobs. That’s why we’re launching a Tumblr. We’ll post things like the best quotes from President Obama, or video of young scientists visiting the White House for the science…
Now THIS is getting interesting…
So I did an “X-Position” interview, which is where readers on CBR, I believe, can ask me questions about my X-Books and I answer them in a column. This is possibly the 15th interview I’ve done about my upcoming X-Men relaunch and its a challenge each time to answer questions about a book no…
Reasonably certain that this “subsection” of readers aren’t the kind of people I’d want to share reading this book with.
Brian Wood’s got something great going here, and I’m with it 100%.
When I heard that Power Girl was returning to her more classic look in the pages of Mahmud Asrar’s Supergirl, I was hoping they’d at least give her costume some tweaks, the way Amanda Connor did during PGs solo series. If this turns out to be her new look, I’m not disappointed at all.

Beautiful cover image of X-23. Too bad it’s for such a terrible, pointless series.
