DC's crossover game is strong lately. Not only do we have things like Justice League/Power Rangers on the way, along with the next Batman/TMNT crossover, the company has now announced that several of its weird (and very wonderful) comic takes on Hanna-Barbera characters will now host a series of team-ups with DC's own finest heroes.

The Justice League/Power Rangers crossover miniseries is nearly upon us, which means it's time for variant covers — and that means time for team-ups between members of the League and the teens with attitude. Kimberly and Batman make for a great pairing, no?
There have been so many different takes on Batman over the years, both in the comics and out of them, that sometimes it feels like everything that can been said about him as a character has been said. But today's Batman #12 reveals a new layer to what drives Bruce Wayne that marks a significant addition to our understanding of the character.
A few years ago, Cliff Chiang did designs for a Gatchaman-style (better known in the West as the 1970s cartoon Battle of the Planets) take on DC's finest heroes that had us longing for a classic anime take on the Justice League. But artist Jordan Gibson has added to those hopes with a whole series of Gatchaman-inspired Batgirl art that we adore.
Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is a free-to-play RPG in which players build a team of characters from throughout Star Wars history and take them through a series of progressively difficult turn-based battles. Replace "Star Wars" with "DC Comics" in that description and you've got DC Legends.
After years of hoping and begging, it's finally happening. Warner Bros. has officially announced that the beloved DC animated series Young Justice, which came to a close three years ago, will return for a third season.

Forget that skinny, supermodel interpretation of the universe's most ornery bounty hunter who debuted a while back. The beefier, original-recipe design of the Main Man will be back in the DC Universe as part of a new Justice League team early next year.
Batman's been showing a broader spectrum of emotions lately, with more trust and genuine attempts at connection coming from Bruce Wayne than there has been in decades. But grief never strays too far from the Dark Knight's side. Batman writer Tom King told us how the superhero is going to handle Gotham City's latest devastating losses and when DC Rebirth's Watchmen mystery will start coming into play (hint: It's sooner than you think).
Back in 1977, DC Comics published the first issue of Shade, The Changing Man, featuring a new adventurer created by the legendary Steve Ditko. Shade grew to become one of the trippiest heroes ever published by DC, eventually returning in a series that helped lay the foundation for the groundbreaking Vertigo imprint. Now a new series morphs Shade's newest form into the most complicated one yet: A teenage girl.
Video: The man who's currently writing DC's excellent Deathstroke series has had one of the most eventful careers in comics. At New York Comic-Con last week, he talked about helping Luke Cage stop being a laughingstock and his first meeting with the legendary comic writer who helped found Milestone Media. (Also, Batman being a jerk.)
