DC Comics Has Done It Again!

1 Mar

March 1, 2015

DC Comics has another huge event coming up, and they promise that when it’s over we’ll have a new DC Universe. WOW! I CAN’T WAIT! Because as long-time readers know, (you know, those guys in the Ukraine jail) I’ve given up comics and in the last four or so years (since DC’s last reboot, Flashpoint) I’ve bought less than 4 or 5 comics, not counting Afterlife with Archie, which is just that good.

Anyway, in this event, characters from across all of DC’s history, regardless of era, dimension, or if they even exist in current continuity, have been brought together to battle it out.

And just by coincidence, Marvel is doing the exact same thing.

Remember when Marvel used to call itself The House of Ideas? Now they call themselves The House that Makes Changes to Match Whatever The Movies Do.

Well, the DC reboot has me excited- with a capital EXCITE!- because, if these leaked promo pictures I found online are true, they really have got it right this time! THESE are the comics and characters I want to read about! I have to hand it to DC- they are really making some daring moves!

Critics Corner: Justice League of America by Michael Mongello

Readers of this blog have long admired the work of Michael “Supermonge” Mongello. I loved his Superman so much that I gave him the whole blog to show off his stuff. Once wasn’t enough so I turned over the blog to his Star Wars work. And lastly, when it was time for a banner to celebrate my 500th post I turned to Monge yet again.

To say I like his stuff is an understatement. And honestly, he keeps getting better.

He does it all. Hop over to www.supermonge.com see his heroes, his Titans, his cars, his women, all top of the line.

But first, check out his JLA. This is one is a monster! (Click on it to enlarge- and I mean it, this one is big.)

Next up, the Big Gun of the Summer, Green Lantern:

Straight out of DC’s Flashpoint event, The Flash!

Here are two characters who, pre-Crisis, were Earth-1 and Earth-2 counterparts, Power Girl and Supergirl:

And another duo, Green Arrow and Black Canary:

Plastic Man:

In her classic fishnets, what else? Zatanna!

Next up, two guys you usually don’t think of when you think JLA but wait until you see Black Lightning and Dr. Fate:

We’ve seen Green Lantern and Green Arrow, so here’s the green Martian Manhunter:

Next, DC’s Big Three:

Another orignal member of the JLA, Aquaman:

This is another classic team-up, Hawkman and The Atom:

DC is launching 52 titles, there’s no room for art like this?

Mike Monge can often be found appearing at comic cons so if he’s at one by you, make sure you stop by and get a sketch.

And here’s a bonus, Green Arrow solo. (Ollie always liked playing the field.)
