It’s September, which means it’s time to put the spotlight on a new Community Member of the Month! This time, we’ll be getting to know @wrightline1.42741 !
What originally got you into DC Comics?
Watching the Adventures of Superman, as a kid, in the 50s.
Who is your favorite DC character, and why?
That would be the Shade. After Zero Hour, he gained an ambiguous nature that I loved.
What books are you currently reading?
Not reading any current titles. But Starman (vol 2, tpb #10, last in the series) is presently on my coffee table. Robinson does for the Starman family, what Alan Moore did for Swamp Thing almost 20 years earlier. Great stuff.
Are you watching any DC movies or shows?
Superman & Lois was the last TV show I took in. The Flash movie, last time I spent $$$ to see something in the theater.
What are you most looking forward to within the DC universe?
Season 4 of Superman & Lois, of course. And the revamped Gunn/Safran DCU on the big and little screen. So much is riding on their success.
What 6-12 books would you recommend to the general DC Community?
1. The Sandman - Neil Gaiman
2. Death: the High Cost of Living - Neil Gaiman
3. The Sandman Mystery Theater - Matt Wagner
4. World’s Finest - Karl Kesel
5. Starman - James Robinson
6. The Shade - James Robinson
7. Swamp Thing - Alan Moore
8. Wonder Woman: the Hiketeia - Greg Rucka
9. Doomsday Clock - Geoff Johns
10. DC 60th Anniversary Tabloid series - (neither traditional comics or tpbs, but these Dini/Ross masterpieces stand along side the best of either!)
