April kicks off tomorrow, which means it’s time to introduce our newest Community Member of the Month: @RexRebel!
What originally got you into DC Comics?
I was diagnosed with dyslexia when I was around six eventually my parents got me reading Comics and then later Greek and Roman Mythology to improve my reading skills. They started me off with Superman, if my memory is right it was issue 242, and I have been hooked ever since.
Who is your favorite DC character, and why?
It’s a bit cliché, but I would have to say Superman. I mean how can you argue anyone else, the first, amazing powers and an optimist. Though, a main reason is learning to read through reading his adventures introduced me to a world full of books and knowledge that I otherwise may have never found.
What books are you currently reading?
Well, I do read all of the weekly DC Comic releases on DCUI, as well as the Marvel ones on Marvel Unlimited. The current titles, that I have been most interested in are Superman: Space Age, Batman/Superman World’s Finest, Wonder Woman, Justice Society of America, The Human Target and Fables.
Are you watching any DC movies or shows?
Currently Gotham Knights, Season 8 of the Flash, Season 3 of Pennyworth and getting ready to start the Last Season of Supergirl and the Season 2 of Superman & Lois and waiting on Titans latest drop. As to movies just saw Shazam Fury of Gods, don’t understand why it isn’t getting more love, and will be going to The Flash.
What are you most looking forward to within the DC universe?
Well like everyone else, I assume the new proposed media slate from Gunn both TV and Movies, as well as the just started Dawn of the DC event.
