Superman remains my ideal superhero. He's good and honest and strong and kind. He's who want to have all the powers of a god. He has his flaws and makes mistakes on occasion but in the end he's going to save the world again and again. I've heard all the arguments why he's "too powerful" or "boring" but I could never agree with that. The five year old version of me who's out there running around with her blankie as her cape will never get tired of Superman saving the day.
I love this strange, twisted character because she can straddle that line of comedy and tragedy and can be deeply fucked up and entertaining all at once. I've loved her since the animated series and still love her in The New 52 today.
One of the most visually striking superheroes who consistently has the most amazing art. A character I've been pleased to follow since her inception.
Her previous series was the first comic I ever added to my pull list when I started buying comics. She's been a favorite since I was a kid. And there's no pretending that Batman Returns and Michelle Pfeiffer didn't have a lot to do with that. But it's the comic book Selina Kyle who really won my heart and who I've happily followed the adventures of each month.
A powerful series that I read early on in my foray into comics. I just loved that, while this story had a fucked up future for sure, it also had HOPE. There was an optimism to this story. The beautiful realistic art of Alex Ross was amazing to experience for the first time. I think what truly makes this story a favorite of mine was the focus on the bond and friendship of the DC Trinity: Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman.
