Do I want to be her best friend or be her?
After taking on the legacy mantle of Power Girl in her very first appearance over six months ago, new DC Comics character Tanya Spears is finally getting the chance to join the Teen Titans in their latest story arc, and we can't wait to see what she's got.
We've got issues. Lots of issues.
Welcome to Pull It Together, where the goal is to narrow the massive field of comic book titles to the ones you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours!
The Mary Sue Exclusive
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
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.
