The webcomic Shortpacked! explains all the extra detail on the Flash’s new, post-relaunch boots. Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
Read the whole strip for Batman’s reaction.
Shortpacked! cartoonist David Willis posted these photos of the completed Robin DeSanto statue from Patch Together. I’ve got to say, it looks great.

The statue is available for preorder.
Robin initially used her super-powers in a top-secret alien-fighting squad (the main story of It’s Walky!). In the years since the alien invasion was thwarted, she has become a simple retail clerk at a toy store (Shortpacked!)…when she’s not moonlighting as a United States Congresswoman.
The statue is available for pre-order now.
