Happy Father's Day to the Dads of DC Comics!
Today is Father’s Day so if you have a dad or someone you think of as a dad and they love you and you love them, I hope you have a good day. To celebrate I am once again offering my apologies to Dr. Seuss and offering a poem for the day.
There are dads who stealthy
And dads who are wealthy
Dads who give the evil eye
And dads who are filled with pride
Dads who will give you hell
And dads who can teach a spell
Some dads truly are the pits
And some dads understand that sometimes all you can do is sit
Some dads are faster than light
And some dads always say what’s right
Some dads come to their role quite late
And some dad’s will do anything to change their child’s fate
There dads who are protective
And dads who are reflective
And some dads who, after all, were detectives
The dads of DC come in all sizes, big and small,
And then there are dads who aren’t fathers at all
I miss my dad - give yours a hug for me! Have a great day!
The Brilliance of DC Comics' Marketing Synergy!
Man of Steel is the biggest non Batman superhero hit movie they’ve had in … I don’t know how many years. And the movie did really well in the demographics drawing in a demographic of 44% women. Compare that to Ironman 3 whose opening weekend had an audience that was 31% female audience.
Most people attribute much of that bump to Amy Adams playing Lois Lane. If you’ve seen the movie you know that it keeps to the canon as far as their relationship since before the mishegas started in the new 52. The kiss the two shared was shown almost a year ago at SDCC so I’m not spoiling anything.
So in the brilliant marketing synergy that is DC Comics, today they announced a new Superman book. Oh wait, make that Superman/Wonder Woman. Hitting in October and exploring the “budding relationship” according to IGN.
Wonder Woman, the most iconic female superhero in comics, finally has a second book for the first time in 61 years and it’s second billing to her boyfriend and in a book where she’s making out with him on the cover.
I said it when the first announced this relationship and I’ll say it again - they are boiling down this character to a romantic interest for a dude. Why can’t she have her own relationship in her own book?
My head and my desk are unfortunately today in a relationship as painful as the one below.
