Before I get this post rolling, let me just preface it by saying that I really wish that I could take credit for this theory. It is actually the brainchild of my boyfriend, who spends virtually all of his spare time thinking about DC continuity (not an exaggeration) and who posed this particular theory to me … Continue reading “Doomsday Clock” Theory: Will the JSA Return?
The blu-ray release of Wonder Woman came out this week, and I was happy to see it was filled with plenty of special features, not only about the making of the film, but about the history of the character and her significance in the comics. Watching some of these this weekend, I began to reflect … Continue reading Wonder Woman: A Hero to All

I don't normally post about new comics I've purchased, primarily because I buy them somewhat infrequently (one of the perks of having a boyfriend who owns ALL THE COMICS). We went on a little adventure this weekend though, and I wound up with a few great buys, so I figured I'd take a page out … Continue reading Comics Collection Update!
Welcome to the inaugural post on Hippo Planet, my brand-new blog! If you're familiar with my former blogging outpost, Holy Comics, Batman!, you know that I have a massive slight girl-crush on Black Canary. She's one of my favorite female superheroes, and may even outrank Wonder Woman on my list. I've praised her kick-ass attitude … Continue reading Inaugural Post! (a.k.a. Black Canary Fangirling)
