My first venture into DC comics was through some of the classics: The Killing Joke, The Long Halloween, The Dark Knight Returns, and Knightfall.  Sooner or later, I continued to pick up other Batman titles like Hush, Death in the Family, and Arkham Asylum.  I picked up everything that was considered Batman essential stories and sat proud of my collection of DC titles.  I continued to pick up a few DC imprints like Vertigo comics such as Fables and Y: The Last Man, further cementing my status as a DC fanboy.

What I hadn’t considered in the past was exploring other main DC titles.  For a while I was perfectly content with my collection.  Then I stumbled upon a fan webcomic created by Yale Stewart known as JL8.  This web comic series, based on the Justice League as if they were eight year old children, really compelled me to explore some of the other DC characters.  As a result I purchased The New 52 Justice League, happily reveling in the adult version of JL8.  But as I read Justice League, I slowly became interested in the individual members of the Justice League.  After some research, I’ve found that although Superman is one of the most popular superheroes in the DC universe, his beginning New 52 wasn’t as highly acclaimed as some of his co-League members.  Two heroes that have gotten a lot of acclaim were Wonder Woman and surprisingly Aquaman.  So I picked up whatever current volumes existed for these two super heroes.  I quickly learned that DC isn’t only ‘just Batman’.

The volumes covered in this article include:

  • Aquaman Vol. 1: The Trench, written by Geoff Johns & illustrated  by Ivan Reiss
  • Aquaman Vol. 2: The Others, written by Geoff Johns & illustrated by Ivan Reiss
  • Wonder Woman Vol. 1: Blood, written by Brian Azzarello & illustrated by Cliff Chiang

We posted about how Psy has affected pop culture before with Han Solo.  This is an equally awesome mash up that combines Gangnam Style with Stanley Kubrik’s The Shining.  I personally like this one even more just solely based from Shelley Duvall’s reaction whilst holding a knife.  Anyone else think this Gungnam fad will fade out eventually?

College Humor enlisted Dan Markowitz from Defectivity.com to draw a neat schematic as to why you’d be bleeding according to movie cliche’s.  While none are overly insightful, you gotta appreciate the art and semi-witty statements that accompany it.  Above is the first half, in support of College Humor, I’ll link you to the second half.

One of my scheduled posts is to watch the entire James Bond Anthology for the firs time.  I’ve seen most of the Pierce Brosnan ones and the Daniel Craig ones, and only a sprinkle of Sean Connery’s work.  But it doesn’t take a die hard bond fan to appreciate the mash of all the introductions.  Something that perked up my ears is what one Youtube commenter asking for all the shots to be synced together.  A notion I wouldn’t mind either.
