After all, those of us who have been reading comics for decades aren’t always going to be here to make our weekly jaunts to the local comics shop, as sad as it is to point that out. Most recently, DC launched the New 52 and Marvel began Marvel NOW in order to create places where fans who haven’t been reading their books for a long time could find a “jumping on” point and give comics a shot.

Today at Fan Expo Canada, DC Comics will announce (or has announced, or did announce depending on when you are reading this – Hello, Future People!), that Justice League America is uprooting and moving north to Canada. No, really.
Dial H, DC’s experiment in reviving the retro-grade IP, has come to an end. It has consistently been the most wild and imaginative comic to come out of the big two in recent years, and along the way has raised more questions than its answered.

Superman and Batman. One is a modern god, as visible to the public as the sun, who inspires and leads with his example of protecting the innocent and believing even Lex Luthor has some good in him.

Does Vibe hold up on his own? Find out after the jump!
