Other DC Speedsters

Justice League of America (with Jesse Quick) battles the Crime Syndicate.

The Teen Titans meet Robin.

DC Comics Presents: Young Justice continues with #2, reprinting The Secret, stories from the Young Justice Secret Files, and Young Justice in No-Man’s Land. We seem to be getting the specials reprinted – how long before DC reprints the series itself?

    That Faster Friends cover is shameless. What does DC think will happen when someone buys the book at their local comics shop, reads it and doesn’t find Hal or Barry inside, and then wants to return it? Marketing I get; false advertising I don’t.

    (That potentially not being the final cover notwithstanding.)

        Ah, that explains the “96” next to the artist’s signature. He is listed as the cover artist, though, which suggests that it’s not intended as a placeholder. SRSLY?

    Woo, pandering! -_-

    Hi, DC? This is the fanbase speaking. While it’s AWESOME that you’re making reprinted comics and some of your trades cheaper, if two characters aren’t going to be IN the book, don’t put them on the cover. That’s being a dick, DC. Don’t be a dick.
