Yet there is no time to mourn as the Mars colony struggles to keep itself from falling apart.

MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
With the DC Universe Relaunch well underway, it has been announced that Gail Simone will be taking on the writing duties for the upcoming Batgirl series featuring Barbara Gordon under the cowl.  This has a fair number of people upset, and though we don’t know how the story will be presented, if DC is undoing 20 years of continuity, or what the fate of the other Batgirl is, we want to know what YOU think of the change.
FIGHT!

DC RELAUNCH: Barbara Gordon as Oracle, or Batgirl?

Legion Lost
Murder. Not intricately plotted “whodunit.” Not fiery passionate fury. But dirty, sad, disturbing actions from real people.

The Legion of Super-Heroes finds itself stranded in a distant galaxy, on the home planet of the vicious alien race known as the Progeny. While some of our heroes struggle to repair their damaged spaceship, the rest attempt to forge an alliance with the peaceful Kwai. But can the Legion help the Kwai defeat their oppressors and still make their way back home to Earth?

    I’m glad someone else agrees with me that Tiny Titans is not really for kids. It is really for adults because the jokes make no sense unless you know the continuity related to the characters in the books you cannot read to your kids.
