Hmm, no Savage -- I'm not convinced that just because Commissioner Gordon never heard of him doesn't mean he never got his powers. But that aside, it was amusing to see the Harley Mammoth tossing him around.
Equally amusing that now Lucius Fox is the principal.
Mad Hatter and Silver St. Cloud in Katana's comic. Nice. The supers just giving up and the hat pun were awfully amusing. I liked Supergirl and Harley's commentary on the comic right after. Nice to see the artists' flex their styles in Katana and Supergirl's art. Wonder Woman's reaction to Supergirl's was hilarious, veiled insult and all. Poor Moone, has to eat dinner in the cafeteria for her students' sake.
Supergirl's comic book was adorable. Love the wink to Wonder Woman's traditional comic book origin but incorporating elements of DCSHG like Capes & Cowls, Superfood Cakes, and Killer Moth. Comet and Baticorn! But I think my favorite bit was Supergirl totally trolled Wonder Woman in her comic with Steve declaring her like-liked her and tried to kiss her -- then the real WW objects. A bunch of butterflies carrying off Moth was so random yet... so right. Overall, pretty cool an artist like Garbowska got to use a bit more of her art style in a franchise title.
DC Super Hero Girls are getting a Free Comic Book Day issue today, containing a preview of their next graphic novel, "Summer Olympus" (which will be released on July 11th).
DC SUPER HERO GIRLS FCBD 2017 SPECIAL EDITION
(Writer) Shea Fontana, (Artist) Yancey Labat
DC Super Hero Girls is an exciting new universe of superhero storytelling that builds character and confidence and empowers girls to discover their true potential. This special FCBD issue features an exciting, action-packed story from the upcoming original graphic novel DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: SUMMER OLYMPUS that readers of all ages will enjoy.
5/10: Neat, WW chose Mrs. Clayface from the short, Dark Opal and Eclipso from the 1st movie, and Trigon for his comic's villains. She was pretty spot on with Cyborg and Starfire, heh.
Nice touch that Harley's comic was about an AU Harley being a villain. But doesn't bode well for SHH.
5/21: Thoughts on the FCBD issue. Wow, finally the end of Freshman year for them. Considering they tend to use some contemporary material, makes sense Zeus is Wonder Woman's father in this franchise. More so interesting that Hermes brought up Diana's Middle Eastern half-sister Siracca. In the comics, she had aerokinesis.There's 5 or 6 half-siblings altogether.
Hippolyta's reaction to the invite and the Pandora's Box nod were amusing enough. Figure's he's an absent father. Dr. Arkham's in the novels but this mention of Arkham Asylum was unexpected. Should be fun getting a peek at everyone else's vacations, too. Never know who else may show up along the way.
Though a bit of a continuity error. Barda refers to Thanksgiving, an allusion to Hero of the Year. However, HotY was revealed to be around spring break in a recent episode "Spring Prison Break" and in the comic, bolstered by the fact Supergirl says it's her first summer on Earth.
It's alive! Thanks to Harley's artistic shortcut, the girls' art projects have come to life and are headed straight toward the school library. Will they learn that knowledge is power or are they overdue for a hero versus villain face-off?
As part of the Wonder Woman Day celebration, there's a new DC Super Hero Girls free comic book released today, containing another chapter from the upcoming "Summer Olympus" graphic novel.
DC Super Hero Girls Wonder Woman Day Special Edition (2017) #1
Celebrate Wonder Woman Day on June 3 with two free special edition comics! This exclusive Wonder Woman Day issue features a full chapter from the upcoming DC SUPER HERO GIRLS VOL. 3: SUMMER OLYMPUS. School’s out for summer. Wonder Woman is preparing to visit her father, Zeus, with Bumblebee, Batgirl, Beast Boy and Katana! When they arrive at Olympus, it’s not long before distrustful Ares turns this family reunion into a family competition—and the prize is Wonder Woman’s soul! But when Ares and Strife join forces to work their battle magic on Wonder Woman’s friends, will the girls end up fighting each other instead of the real enemy?
Batgirl, Beast Boy, and Katana going through all the London landmarks was pretty cool. Sherlock Museum, Buckingham, London Eye, as well as the Queen and her two Corgis. I suppose that's Strife who they were chasing.
I went to the Grove in LA and saw Shea Fontana at Barnes And Noble for the Wonder Woman Day Event. She spoke about the DC Super Hero Girls graphic novels and moving on to the Wonder Woman arc and signed Summer Olympus and Hits and Myths for me. She said "Thank you for being a huge fan!"
Did anyone notice this in Finals Crisis?
It says Shea'16, referencing Shea Fontana's work on DC Super Hero Girls in 2016.

While the drawings feast on the library’s many books to gain power, Batgirl barely escapes and starts brainstorming her plan to stop them. Is it time to ask for some help from their teachers? It’ll have to be detention or disaster as the clock starts ticking on their decision!
Oh, crap. I'm a mess right now. Something in the Politics thread triggered me big time and I'm having flashbacks and bad thoughts. I hope the thread is closed. It's bringing out the worst in otherwise decent people.
