Hope Corgi is at it again.
Hope Corgi needs to be a canon Lantern.
YES HE DOES
And then we need to get a story all about him hanging out with Dex-Star
Where he cheers him up with fun space adventures :D
Okay, I love the idea of Hope Corgi.
Look at his silly happy face
As he spreads joy and good feelings throughout the DCU
The DCU is in serious need of the Hope Corgi <3
Hope Corgi needs to be the one who rolls back the New 52 (but leaves the good bits like Batwoman and more inclusive cast of Batgirl included).
Like, ‘Wow, everyone here is so dark and gritty and mean and depressed. I got this.” And boom, suddenly DC wasn’t afraid of looking somewhat light-hearted and uplifting instead of the worst of the 1990s again. Thanks to the blue light of hope, dissolving Dan DiDio into nothingness.
Hope Corgi then gets many belly rubs from Cassandra Cain, Stephanie Brown, Scandal Savage, et al. A job well done.
China Miéville’s Dial H is one of the more unique titles currently flying the DC banner. It doesn’t really fit within the current DC Universe, but would fit snugly in the Vertigo Universe of the mid-90s. I’ve been reading the book since issue number one and have been thoroughly enjoying it. However, much like a Miéville novel there are many layers to the title and a casual reader might have a hard time picking up in the middle and finding it easy to jump on board (although someone has been updating wikipedia with a very detailed synopsis of the ongoing plot).
Issue 6 provides a great jumping on point for anyone interested in starting Dial H. Not only does it provide a rough synopsis of what’s been going on since issue 1 it’s also a delightful one-off issue that acts as a tongue-in-cheek nod to the not often talked about racially insensitive history of comics.
Nelson, one of our two dialers, dials up Chief Mighty Arrow who is the complete personification of the “red Indian” stereotype. Roxie, the elder dialer, refuses to let him leave the house to fight crime unless something truly tragic happens. As a result nearly the entire issue takes place in Roxie’s home where we’re treated to a deeper look into the how the dials can effect the user psychologically.
The issue also showcases Miéville’s humor writing abilities to much success. One especially memorable moment is when Roxie, who’s been dialing for decades, pulls out her photo book in which she documented many of the heroes she’s dialed up over the years. She shows Nelson the heroic transformations she had to force herself to not use and instead wait out due to the offensiveness, such as Golliwog and Doctor Cloaca.
Dial H is definitely one of the stand out titles of the DC Universe and I highly recommend it for anyone seeking a break from the typical superhero storylines being presented by the Big Two. Start with issue 6 and keep an eye out for the collected edition of the first story arch.
Clark Kent is a crazy stalker. That’s what this panel, which will appear in Superman #13, says to me. Would Superman use his x-ray vision to read Lois Lane’s personal text messages? That’s something crazy jealous people in relationships do and is so very unethical. It’s especially creepy because he says “I hate myself for doing this,” so he acknowledges it isn’t the right thing to do, but apparently can’t control himself. After reading it and seeing it’s from Lois Lane’s boyfriend he storms out of the office in a jealous emo huff. Did I mention it’s creepy?
Here’s two pages from issue 1.
Yeah, we’re sort of going for it.
