What to Expect When You’re Expecting (DC REBIRTH)

INTRODUCTION I was a DC Comics super-fan. Green Lantern was my favorite superhero, followed closely by Superman and Batman; Crisis on Infinite Earths blew my mind and Geoff Johns and Grant Morrison were, in my opinion, the greatest comic book writers on [...]
