Interesting bit of comics news that I’m surprised I’ve heard absolutely no one besides my parents talking about, DC comics is slated to add a teenage Cree woman named Miiyahbin from Moosonee, Ontario to their Justice League United title. The writer, Canadian Jeff Lemire (of Essex County Trilogy and Sweet Tooth fame) said her character was inspired by the story of Shannen Koostachin, a 15 year old Cree activist who led a lobby for First Nations education and died in a car crash shortly before her 16th birthday. Wanting to do justice to her legacy Lemire has stated in interviews that he visited Moose Factory to talk to residents there about how they would like to see the character portrayed. (ie no beads, fringe, feathers, or loincloths) It’ll be interesting to see how this character falls in with the current lineup. I have to say I was skeptical when I first heard she was going to have nature based powers (it’s always nature based powers) but Jeff Lemire seems legitimately concerned with making something the community will be proud of.

Dick Grayson Not Dying; Gets New Comic in July

dcwomenkickingass:

For months readers have worried that Dick Grayson might be the latest Robin to die in comics. The signs were certainly there. He was tortured and had his identity revealed in Forever Evil. And then they cancelled his comic, Nightwing. 

But rest assure Dick lovers, Mr. Grayson is staying in comics

According to USA Today, he is getting a new job - spy with the CIA like organization Spyral  and a new costume:

At the very least, he is getting a wardrobe makeover, courtesy of Grayson artist Mikel Janin: Gone is Grayson’s mask, and his new outfit reflects the blue-and-black color scheme of his Nightwing togs and features a “G” on his chest, reminiscent of the old “R” from his Robin days.

Tim Seeley and Tom King are joining Janin on the book.

Are you excited?

It’s very hard for me to be silly about Superman, because I’ve seen firsthand how he actually transforms people’s lives. I have seen children dying of brain tumors who wanted as their last request to talk to me, and have gone to their graves with a peace brought on by knowing that their belief in this kind of character really matters. It’s not Superman the tongue-in-cheek cartoon character they’re connecting with; they’re connecting with something very basic: the ability to overcome obstacles, the ability to persevere, the ability to understand difficulty and to turn your back on it. [Christopher Reeve] – Time, (March 14, 1988)

I think this post may have changed my mind about Superman.

I still tear up two seconds into this post and it’s far from the first time it’s appeared on my dash.

I found it! My first ever published work, it was a puzzle thing inside a free magazine you get when you purchase 2 gallons of milk from your grocery store.
The horror. 

I couldn’t help myself, I simply had to reblog.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: BRUCE TIMM ON HIS RETURN TO BATMAN WITH ‘STRANGE DAYS’
By Andy Khouri

Bruce Timm: Oh, I’m never going to be done with Batman. No, basically what happened was it all came about as a fluke. I was at the premiere of The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2 at the Paley Center. One of the reporters there asked me, of all the different versions of Batman that I’ve worked on, through all the DVDs and the series and stuff, which one was my favorite. I said of course it’s the original, Batman: The Animated Series, because that’s the closest to my own personal vision of Batman. Then I got to thinking, well, you know, even B:TAS was not 100% exactly what I would do with Batman if I was boss of the world and didn’t have to take into account economics or TV executives. If I was the boss of the world, how exactly would I do Batman and some of the things they tried to incorporate into B:TAS but had to change a little for various reasons.

Also in this interview: who will voice the new Batman short?
