In the most bizarre Convergence tie-in issue yet Convergence: Harley Quinn #2 pits the pre-New version of the Joker’s sidekick against the leader of the Zoo Crew. That’s right, it’s Harley Quinn vs. Captain Carrot. And it’s kind of brilliant.
I’m so starved for a Captain Carrot comic I’ll even read one by Grant Morrison. What has the world come to? The Multiversity launches here, and in typical Morrison fashion it’s big, messy, and jumps wildly from entertaining to pretentious and crappy.
Taken from Robot Chicken‘s DC Comics Special (which I finally got around to watching the other night) here’s the show making me extremely happy with an Amazing Zoo Crew sketch (which teaches Batman and Superman a valuable lesson never to invite Hal Jordan to accompany them on somber occasions – especially where talking animals are involved).
While I wasn’t looking DC Comics launched their only thinly-veiled rip-off of Marvel Comics’ Guardians of the Galaxy as part of the New 52. Now I love the Guardians (both original and newer versions), so the concept of a rag-tag DC version of space explorers told by the extremely talented Keith Giffen doesn’t sound like that bad of an idea to me (even if the comic really isn’t all that interesting or well-told). At worst it would just be another New 52 mistake I could blissfully ignore. And then this happened.
With DC Comics reboot of their entire universe with 52 new first issues now underway I continue to take a look at what I would do if I rebooted the DCU.
Where I could I kept ideas DC wanted to explore in the relaunch (when not incredibly stupid like Voodoo), and even included titles I’m personally not all that high on but characters I know have a devoted fan base. You’ll find I’ve also kept far more of the current titles than DC’s proposed reboot, and brought back a few personal favorites as well.
Honestly, I haven’t picked up an issue of Justice Society of America in quite some time. Although I was a fan of the previous volume of the series penned by Geoff Johns, this current take on the world’s first super-team never really held my interest, especially once the JSA was split into two separate teams.
