I can’t lie and tell you that the original series did not have issues.
HOWEVER… the idea is really solid, and with an all female teen, a book accessible to pre-teens, but with enough fun and depth for all-ages (read adults), I think this could be a valuable franchise for DC.
Rick and Morty vs D&D #1
This was a week late, but who cares.
This gets a WOW because it hit all the notes it should hit and got everything right, unlike, say the D&D Community episode.
Comic Covers looks at comic book covers and give a brief examination of them through the years
Miller, Byrne, Perez, Maguire, and Moore and more! In the second to last row, compare the Avengers and JL covers, one has become iconic, but more, which one would make you want to pick up a book and give it a chance?
Bendis and Maleev is a pairing I love. Confession time, I wanted to love Scarlet, but I did not love it. Here is to second chances.
Ask an actor what their dream role would be? Hamlet? Personally, I find Richard II more interesting. But, I would bet they have an answer.
I was part of a discussion about favorite superhero to play in an RPG. One person said they only like playing their own character. I believe there is much fun to be had in taking on a pre-established character, be it a super-hero or some other fictional character.
Then, the question of what would character X do in a certain situation is up to you.
Ask a comicbook writer the same question- what characters would they like to write, and chances are they will have an answer. Playing around in the skin of a character established can be quite fun, drawing on past events, as well as making your own choices.
On the 13th day of each of the 13 months, we will bring you some content and ideas for 13th Age, our absolute favorite D&Derivative game.
Keith Baker’s Eberron was one of the most interesting, innovative, and evocative fantasy settings ever. I ran a relatively long-term game in the setting and also played in one.
I would pay money for a 13th Age version of the game.
Instead, I will give you a quick freebie.
If a character is Dragonmarked, their house (one of 13, not coincidentally) might well be one of their Icons. This is not to say that they could not also have a relationship with a different house.
- Dragonmarked houses
- Dragons of The Chamber
- Queen Aurala
- King Boranel
- Korranberg Chronicle
- Lhesh Haruuc
- Lords of Dust
- Daughters of Sora Kell
- Lord of Blades
- Lathon Halpum
- Keeper of the Flame
A long-time ago, Marvel had this in-canon idea of each state having their own secret team. We saw glimpses of some of these teams in various books. I think they really missed out on a great opportunity here. Weekly series, each detailing a different team, runs for a year (52 issues plus annual) detailing a Puerto Rico team, a DC team, and obviously a NYC team (this would be the annual). I have ideas for some of the teams, and I may at some point do a much longer post detailing this idea, but i think it really could have been good fun.
West Coast Avengers
Why was this not just the Kate-led Hawkeye title?
I was expecting to not like this, I am not sure why, maybe Quentin Quire.
I am glad I was wrong.

The Iron Age, starts with two significant, serious crossovers, some interesting art on the covers, but still relics of another era remain. Oh yeah, that black costume….
