The Mary Sue Exclusive

The Mary Sue Exclusive Preview of Worlds’ Finest #11 With Huntress and Power Girl!

This month is “WTF” month at DC Comics, which they assure us stands for “What The Fifty-two.” What this means, tangibly, is that each New 52 issue out in April will feature a cover that’s… well, based on what I’ve seen, no more sensationalist than your average sensationalist comics cover. The promise this time, however, is that the stuff on these covers is actually representative of what’s inside, and that each cover is part of a double spread, with the other half of the image revealing an even more sinister twist to the story. Here’s a preview of Worlds’ Finest #11, the book of dimensional refugees, renegade-superheros, and best buds Power Girl and the Huntress.

The Mary Sue Exclusive

An Exclusive Preview of Worlds’ Finest #7 Featuring Power Girl and The Huntress!

Worlds’ Finest is a comic I’m really enjoying right now, for a number of reasons. First, one of the characters is Batman’s daughter, which is basically who I wanted to be from the age of eleven to probably… sixteen or seventeen. The comic features Helena Wayne and Karen Starr, the Robin and Supergirl of Earth-2, unexpectedly transported to our universe in the heat of a battle against Darkseid in which both of their mentors perished, which brings me to the next reason why I love the comic: any superhero story that so prominently features a friendship between women is to be cherished. And finally, issue #7 marks the second part of a story featuring Helena’s Earth Prime counterpart: Damian Wayne. Damian is something of a divisive character in fandom and even here at The Mary Sue (Jill loves him… ugh). I took no small pleasure in seeing him matched in sass and kick assery last issue, and I look forward to seeing it again.

In conclusion: Worlds’ Finest has a lot going for it, so I’m happy to say that DC Comics has offered us an exclusive preview of the first six pages of issue #7 and two of its covers.

Ravagers and World’s Finest: A Closer Look at DC’s New Team Books with Female Leads

DC comics has revealed details for their second wave of comics to come out of the rebooted new 52, and a handful of titles promise the return of some fan favorite characters as well as the presentation of female characters in the fore-front. Namely in the former of Ravagers, featuring a new Terra and Beast Boy; and Worlds’ Finest, a title that used to be about Batman and Superman (it also used to be World’s Finest, a feat of punctuational distinction that excites your humble editor), is now housing the triumphant return of Powergirl and The Huntress to the DC Universe.

Interview: Amanda Conner at Baltimore Comic Con

Our contributor Christopher Holden happened to be going to Baltimore Comic-Con this past weekend, and graciously volunteered to be on the job while he was there!

Amanda Conner (whose comics work resume is so prestigious you should probably just go read about it before we quote the entire Wikipedia article) agreed to speak with me at the Baltimore Comic-Con while she meticulously worked on a custom portrait of Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) for a fan, which she agreed to draw for $100.

TMS: You’re famous for your work on Power Girl. The DC reboot is right around the corner and Power Girl has noticeably been missing from and news or solicitations. What are your thoughts on this, and do you know anything the rest of us don’t?
