After our visit to DC Beyond, I promised you a return to Kids WB… well, don’t say your favorite uncle doesn’t deliver.
Presenting the freebies of DC Kids!
DC Kids is basically the reason the aforementioned DC Beyond exists: to get your attention to the on-site store.
The mission statement of DC Kids, to be sure, is to sell you games, toys, DVDs, and comics, but it’s that last one we’re most interested in today: DC Kids makes select issues of their most prominent lines available for free.
Here’s a breakdown:
Batman: The Brave and the Bold #1 is the first issue of a series based on the sorely under-appreciated television show, which was recently revealed at Comic-Con to be Grant Morrison’s favorite currently running series.
Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the Eighth Grade #1 introduces a miniseries that’s partly Archie Comics, partly Sailor Moon, and all Supergirl- read it to get a unique, middle school spin on the Superman mythos.
Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! #1 is a follow-up to 2007’s highly acclaimed miniseries Shazam!: The Monster Society of Evil, creating a pleasing blend of the incorruptible forces of Johnny DC and Golden Age comics.
Super Friends #1 is the start of a long, long overdue series based on the DC cartoons of the 70s and 80s- if you’re one of those guys who get nostalgic every time you hear the “pong!” of Aquaman summoning his aquatic charges, this is for you.
Take a serious look at yourself. Do you have enough unrepentant adorableness in your life? If you have to ask, the answer is no. Read Tiny Titans #1.
Justice League Unlimited #1 is self explanatory. If you love the DCAU as much as I do, then this one’s at the top of your list.
Also, Looney Tunes #100, Scooby-Doo #1, and Cartoon Network Action Pack #27. But who cares? JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED.
