Comics and Cards: Livewire Is A Man

Comics and Cards is my new feature on comics and business cards and flyers.

Livewire is a man, a terrible job from artists Eddy Barrows and J.P. Mayer. Livewire suddenly has a mutton-chop beard and breasts in Superman #711 giving off a freaky Abraham Lincoln Freud sex nightmare. From the awful Grounded story arc from J. Micheal Stracynski where Superman just walks around America finding himself (yes, thats the actual story)

Batman's not Batman anymore. After reading Batman Inc. #6, I can see a big reveal down the line that this isn't the real Batman. His personality is way to happy and the way he acts is a complete change. Batman is no longer broody or dark, he's just not himself. A few issues further in, I'm sure they reveal something sinister or wrong with Bruce Wayne.
