My favorite item here is the shirt. Not only is that my actual birth year, it’s MARIO. The pin is cute, the mug is like a shot glass, really, and shield is cute, and I’m keeping that comic in the plastic because I’m paranoid, but that shirt is the star here.
The only thing I dislike about this crate is it makes me feel old as fuck… But that can’t be helped.
I don’t know exactly what I would have expected from an ‘origins’ crate but this stuff is ok. It seems a little light on items overall but that Mario shirt makes me too happy to care.
This graphic novel puts DC’s heroines in a WWII setting. It is really creative to see how the creators fit the modern heroes in this setting; Batgirl as a League of Their Own like ball player, Kara as a member of the Soviet pilots The Night Witches, Zatanna working as a stage magician in a club owned by Joker’s Daughter; all really cool roles executed in believable ways. I don’t wanna give too much away plot wise so I don’t ruin the discoveries you’ll fine while reading.
The art is beautiful and all in all, it’s just a damn cool story! It was fun to see my favorite heroes and villains in different roles and in a wartime setting where super powers can make the stakes even higher. Espionage, air fights, seedy bars; just fantastic. I give it a solid 4.9 because seeing Joker’s Daughter made me roll my eyes for a second there (very Rule 63) but the presence of Constantine made it all worth it.
