I want to read the comic and see the movie and play the game and do it all again and again and WOW.

I'm in the midst of a deep, deep lull in my thirty-year relationship with DC comics. This is the third thing to come along in the past few months, not done by DC, that's piqued my interest more than the actual books do. One was a series of webcomics that somebody did featuring Supergirl and Batgirl. One was the "Little League" tumblr that was posted here not long ago. And now this thing. Why is everybody other than DC able to come with goog material based on DC's characters?

Batman Incorporated #1 from this week was enjoyable, and I finally downloaded the first few issues of Snyder's run on Batman and think they are the bee's. For the most part, though, well...

(I like Frankenstein and Animal Man, but that's likely more to do with Jeff Lemire than anything else.)

I think I am one of the only people who have actually liked some of the new DC 52 issues. I have really liked: Batman, Animal Man, Swamp Thing, and Wonder Woman. Beaucoupkevin, did you hear that Lemire is no longer writing on Frankenstein, he is now heading up Justice League Dark. It is a shame that him and Snyder cannot write all of the DC series.

Ipsifendus: a series of webcomics that somebody did featuring Supergirl and Batgirl.
Are you talking about Lauren "Powerpuff Girls & My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" Faust's Super Best Friends Forever? Because that ROCKS!

Tom-B, I think Ipsifendus is referring to a couple of single-page Supergirl/Batgirl comics by Mike Maihack (e.g. a little 6 panel batgirl/supergirl comic, merry christmas from batgirl and super girl, and another batgirl/supergirl comic). Those comics and SBFF share a similar style and charm.

Yep, it's the Maihack comics I was referring to, although the Lauren Faust cartoons are pretty terrific as well.

And I have actually liked some of the New 52 stuff...all of the ones that politicpnk mentioned above, along with some others. And I'll probably follow Grant Morrison forever. But I'm just a little burned out right now.

You know what's unmitigatedly awesome? The "Adventure Time" comic from Boom Studios.

Haven't read a DC comic, other than a trade paperback of older stuff, in a long time, but this is an interesting new/old take on Batman. I'm impressed at how well the artist was able to adapt all the various characters to the concept.
RichardP, those Supergirl/Batgirl comics of Mike Maihack's are fun, too. Don't know all that many younger kids these days, but I definitely could see a couple of my nieces, and maybe one of my nephews, enjoying that treatment of the characters if it were a regular thing,

What's wrong with me, that I thought the car (Ed "Big Daddy" Roth meets Batman!) was the coolest bit?

Roll this forward a bit. B-Man rolling through Gotham with his ride, displaying his rocket fins. Oh, yeah

I definitely prefer this guy's take, but DC actually did a rockabilly Robin and Batgirl in 1961 in Batman: Thrillkiller.
