Identity Crisis

So much is said about Identity Crisis when really, so little can be said without revealing major spoilers. 

Let me introduce you to a couple of very special ladies.  First of all, meet Sue Dibny.

Adoring wife to Ralph Dibny, The Elongated Man.  I’ll let you go ahead and stare at how beautiful that panel is for a minute.

Now, meet Zatanna Zatara:  able to cast spells merely by speaking backwards.  I’ll let you go ahead and try to speak backwards for a minute just to see if anything cool happens.

Yeah, she’s pretty powerful and awesome.  The great thing about Identity Crisis is that you meet and get acquainted with loads of cool characters, while still seeing perennial favourites like Batman, Superman, Nightwing, Green Arrow, etc!

Guys, this may be my favourite comic of all time.  I love it so much, I’m not sure how to talk about it without spoiling it.  But only to say, if you’re thinking about diving into the world of comics, this might be a great place to start!  The storyline focuses on characters who are fully fleshed out in the comic itself so there’s not a lot of Wikipedia background-info-checking to do in order to understand what’s going on (looking at you, The Killing Joke).  You get roped into the story and follow along just as easily as with the pilot of a new television show.  The awesome thing is that AFTER Identity Crisis comes Villains United and then one of my favourite storylines of all Secret Six, written by another awesome lady I’d love for you all to meet:  Gail Simone!
