New Impulse Art From Young Justice

DC still hasn’t told us much about the upcoming Young Justice title for DC’s new ‘Wonder Comics’ imprint, but they’ve released some neat new art of Bart Allen and his teammates. The series will be written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by Patrick Gleason, and will debut in January 2019.

I’m glad to see Bart looking happy and carefree again. What do you guys think of the promo art and costume designs?

Anna from Frozen: Impulse costume design

I finally found this picture again so I could scan it: Costume design for Princess Anna of Arrendelle, aka Impulse.

Background: The four-year-old was watching Frozen for the 538th time, and I found myself thinking of Paul Hostetler’s Disney Princess Justice League from The Line is is Drawn.

Watching Anna go from half-asleep to fully dressed and running around the castle in two seconds, I remarked, “You know, they should have made Anna the Flash instead of Rapunzel.”

Katie and I looked at each other, and she replied, “No…Impulse!” A few viewings later, she drew a costume design.

Digital Backlist: Impulse vs. the Vid-Masters of Korpor!

Sorry I missed the regular “Out This Week” column, on a week that actually featured a new Flash issue no less. Since that’s already covered (and reviewed!), I’ll just focus on the digital backlist: Impulse #88 by Todd Dezago, Carlo Barberi and Terry Austin.

Reality has been restored to normal, but one thing remains from the time when Impulse held the cosmic powers of Bedlam: He knows where (and when) his mother and his best friend Carol went after the events of Dark Tomorrow. He speeds into the 63rd century to find they’re playing the most dangerous game show on an alien world…but the ringmasters have decided a speedster would be an even better star for this deadly reality series!

This is the second to last issue of Impulse. Within a few weeks, the entire series (minus annuals) will be available digitally.

This Week: Trinity War & Dark Tomorrow

Justice League #22

Flash comics out this week:

Justice League #22:Trinity War part 1! The death of a hero ignites a violent war among the Justice Leagues! It’s League vs. League vs. League as an impending darkness approaches the DC Universe. Continued in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (2013- ) #6.”

And in digital backissues, DC seems to be alternating Flash and Impulse now as they add to their back catalog at ComiXology.

Impulse #73. Part 1 of “Dark Tomorrow,” Bart pursues Carol to the future where he finds that someone close to him has created an army of super-speedsters who answer only to the President of Earth – a President named Thawne.
