Trinity Mothers by Yasmin Liang
The colors in this are stunning, and it’s nice to see someone focus on some of the most important but under-utilized characters in comics.
It IS a little disturbing how Martha Wayne doesn’t have a face, but then she always has been defined more by her pearls than anything else. Unless she’s written by Greg Rucka, and then she’s a total bad-ass who calls Batman out on his bullshit. I miss Rucka.

The cover to Action Comics #892 by David Finch.
As ridiculous and awesome as this image is, can we please put an end to “maniacal supervillain in armor” Lex Luthor and return him to being a corrupt and scheming businessman? It would have far greater cultural relevance and resonance to have the symbol of all that’s good about America taking on an evil “big business” executive, and it makes much more sense to have Superman’s archenemy outsmart him and work around the law, preventing any attempts to stop him by manipulation of others/the system, instead of having him be a crazy guy in an Iron Man-wannabe suit. This Superfriends version of Lex is fun in a “nostalgic for the 70’s” way but there’s a reason the character wasn’t like that from 1985-2003: It’s just dumb and doesn’t work well in modern stories.
