DC Comics has been using variant covers to drive sales for the past few months so we’ve had Bombshell covers, Mike Allred variants, and even selfie covers.

In December, perhaps as a gift to readers who dream for the time when DC Comics’ superheroes looked like, well, superheroes we get Darwyn Cooke variants.

Here are the ones for female led comics and, shockingly, there isn’t a brokeback or receptive bulbous heart shaped ass among them.

More, please.

Can we talk about how Diana literally picks Barry up and carries him in celebration?

Wonder Woman don’t care. Wonder Woman do what she want. She don’t give no shit.

i like how barry gives no shits. he just goes with it, even throws his arm around her. like, if he’s just been waiting for an exceptionally large badass woman to pick him up bridal style, and carry him.

I’d imagine it’s an honor to be carried by Wonder Woman.

ASK CHRIS #210: THE STRANGE SAGA OF BATGIRL CASSANDRA CAIN

By Chris Sims

Q: Cassandra Cain: WTF happened?@IamMedellin

A: Here’s the least shocking thing you’re going to read this week: I love Cassandra Cain. That probably goes without saying, given that she’s a relatively obscure member of the Batman family that made her debut when I was a teenager, but really, it goes deeper than that. She came out of the gate with a compelling edge, some phenomenally solid storytelling, and a hook for drama that put her in contrast to the rest of Gotham’s assorted heroes and hangers-on, while still feeling like a natural compliment to the other characters. And then, less than a decade later, she’d gone from being a new character with an incredible amount of potential to an also-ran who only really shows up to fill space in crossovers — something that almost never happens to characters in the Batman family, especially when they’ve got 70+ solo issues under their utility belts.

So what happened? Man, I can’t even tell you, I just read the darn things. But folks, it got really weird there at the end.

BUT SERIOUSLY DO NOT SHIP BOOSTLE

You will go in all happy, thinking there is so much to be happy about. Cute moments with the JLI. Best friends cracking jokes and making up stupid plans. Just two good buddies who have rough patches but always end up together again.

No.

No that is not what you get. 

You get the pain of Ted sacrificing himself to save his friends who didn’t give a damn. You get Booster not being in time to save the most important (living) person in his life. 

You get Booster going back in time countless times to try and save Ted only to fail every time. You get Ted telling his best friend to remember him smiling before going to die again.

Then when you think it’s okay you get Ted being resurrected as a Black Lantern to taunt Booster about his failure. You get Booster screaming to some random guy on the street who barely resembles Ted about how they were supposed to be together forever. 

Booster and Ted are not the fun, kooky and ridiculous pairing you think they are.

They are pain and heartache cleverly disguised with “we’re not gay” moments and “I feel like a jilted lover.” 

I would like to point ALL THE FINGERS at galbee for getting me into Boostle just as Countdown to Infinite Crisis came out.
