'DC Super Hero Girls' New Season Begins with Wonder Woman Recruiting Supergirl


The DC Super Hero Girls has been a boon for DC Comics and Warner Bros Animation as the teenage superheroes have been opened up to a whole new generation of fans. The merchandise side has been doing pretty well too filling a hole in the market for younger fans. Season two of the fun digital shorts begins with 'New Beginnings' as Principal Waller asks Wonder Woman to recruit Supergirl to come to Super Hero High. 


Wonder Woman is living her destiny! As the newly appointed School Ambassador, she's taking the lead to recruit Supergirl to Super Hero High — until a sneak attack from villainess Giganta catches her off guard.
Voiced by Anais Fairweather, Supergirl like the other teens is finding her way and growing up while facing normal challenges. It's something that appeals to Fairweather about humanizing these legendary comic books heroes. 
"Her dynamic is that she really is genuinely learning about herself and learning about the other girls at the school and wanting to take something from all of them,” says Fairweather. “I really believe she wants to learn from each one of them in their own way and become close to them and find her home here because she's so far away from her actual home. I could really feel that sense of her wanting to find her place."
"I think so much of the time we're seeing women on television being pinned against each other, and it's so wonderful to have this show for young women so that they can see other women supporting each other and building each other up. It's important," she says.
The show has a lot to offer, it's fun and exciting like in this episode when Wonder Woman has to battle Giganta, but really the ability to relate to girls is equally important. Supergirl isn't perfect, she's clumsy and unsure of herself at times, but is finding a way to control her powers to overcome her fears. She's learning to trust herself and hopefully that message of embracing your confidence carries over to the audience.
"You see her constantly coming up against herself and questioning herself. Is she powerful enough? Is she ready? Does she have enough training? I think the biggest thing for her is really believing in herself. I so badly want young girls to believe in themselves and to take risks and to not let people stand in their way. It's so important to trust and to know that you can do this. I think a big thing is to call on help and to not be afraid to ask people for help. I think another one of her challenges is to not apologize so much."

ADVANCE REVIEW: 'Babyteeth' #1 by Donny Cates, Garry Brown, and Taylor Esposito

Donnie Cates is one busy man. As if writing two concurrent titles for Image Comics - Redneck and God Country - wasn't enough, Cates has found more time and inspiration to pen one for AfterShock Comics. That's where 'Babyteeth' #1 comes in. It's the latest page-turner from one of the hottest creators in comics.


★★★★★ (5/5)
This is Sadie Ritter's story. A first person account as told to her smartphone recording a video for her new offspring. The teenager recounts the incredible details leading to giving birth to the antichrist. That's right, the antichrist. At this point, you couldn't blame Cates for going hog wild with the supernatural fireworks from riding a wave of success and critical cache in his career. Instead, Cates shows some restraint adhering to some professional discipline and lets the story unfold quietly. 
With any pregnancy, there's enough anxiety and stress to deal with. Imagine your water breaking unexpectedly and having your older sis…

REVIEW: 'Wonder Woman ’77 Meets Bionic Woman' #4 by Andy Mangels, Judit Tondora, and Roland Pilcz

By this point, you have to love Wonder Woman and Bionic Woman as we enter issue four. Andy Mangels and Judit Tondora have brought not only a nostalgic crossover of television icons together but a great duo of heroic and kind-hearted women with great respect for each other and justice.


★★★★☆ (4/5)
The heart and joy of 'Wonder Woman '77 Meets the Bionic Woman' #4 is seeing Jamie Sommers being welcomed to Paradise Island as Wonder Woman brings her home for a visit. It's a scene fans may not have ever imagined before this comic arrived but get to relish the love and hospitality of the Amazons. The beauty of crossovers like this is making things that seemed impossible possible. Two characters from different worlds brought together to fight a malicious menace that combines the idiosyncracies of each into one fantastic fun read. 
Along with Diana's mother, Queen Hippolyta, we get to see a couple of fan favorites from the television series. Drusilla, played by Debra Winger …
