Have you seen this little gem of a webcomic that is on Tumbler? Its about DC heroes and villains as 8 year olds in school.

I know, I've read all of the strips . . . Diana is trying to set up Kara with Clark, but Clark has a thing for Diana, it's a little more adult than what was originally intended, I think. Is it possible that Yale doesn't know that they're cousins from alternate realities?

or even worse, if this is really Earth-2 in which case they're just cousins xD

It's possible he doesn't know, or just doesn't care.

either way, it's an absolutely wonderful comic

I've been following this comic for a while now, it's great! He gets the characters personalities so well.

I think I can safely say it's better than 90% of what DC is actually putting out on the market. Read it!

It's a good series, really cute and pretty funny at points, I love the shout outs to actual comic continuity. I don't get why DC doesn't get behind it and use it to try to appeal to kids, I mean they almost gave Gotham high a show, this seems way more deserving.

Maybe they aren't in this universe.

@Funrush: That too. It's not really important, it's just the first thing that came to mind when I read it.

I looked this up some time ago and according to Yale they're not cousins in this reality. I'll give you the link when I find it

It took me a while to find this thread, but allow me to say (six months after the fact) that I truly LOVE this webcomic! Excellent art and writing, and a wonderful take on the characters we all know. The "birthday party" arc has been outstanding, and I can't wait to see what comes up next.

It's fantastic. Great art and always cute, I always check up on the site every now and again to see if Mr. Stewart's posted up the latest strip.

It's funny how many people can't help reading lil Bruce in Kevin Conroy's voice LOL!! The arcs so far have been fun and very detailed. I would like to see one that focused on Hal; maybe with him trying to get into Space Camp. Also, with a library of characters as deep as DC's, I think it would be cool to have more guest stars. Darkseid as the PE teacher makes me laugh every time I read it, and I've read it at least a hundred times now. Maybe we can see a swim class with a kid who may be just a little too good at swimming...

Yoooo... the last panel of the birthday party arc just punched me right in the heartbone! So very well-done; heartfelt and sincere. Yale Stewart has such a great feel for these characters, it's astounding. I truly CAN NOT WAIT for what they're getting into next. If you're not reading JL8, get on it NOW!
