BATGIRL TAKES THE A.L.S. ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE (WITH A VERY SPECIAL GUEST)
By Chris Sims
Since you are reading this on the Internet, I’m going to go ahead and assume that you’re already familiar with the Ice Bucket Challenge, wherein folks are being nominated by friends, fans and colleagues to dump buckets of freezing cold water on their heads on camera to raise awareness of (and money to combat) ALS, a neurodegenerative disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord — or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, as it is popularly known. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen plenty of famous folks taking the challenge, but now, it has busted right through the Fourth Wal, and all the way to Gotham City’s Burnside neighborhood.
This particular challenge was issued by Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr, the creative team for the revamp of Batgirl, and the challengee is Barbara Gordon herself, who seems set on finding out just how helpful that new jacket is going to be in fighting off the cold.
Fletcher, Stewart and Tarr begin their run in October. Information on ALS and how to donate can be found at ALSA.org.
Reid Wiseman is a national treasure.
I. Love. This stuff.

SEE IT – TO BELIEVE IT: JACK KIRBY’S WILDEST DC COMICS COVERS IN HONOR OF THE KING’S 97TH BIRTHDAY
Jack Kirby is arguably the single most influential figure in the history of American comics. He produced countless stories in a career that spanned seven decades, inventing and re-inventing genres and styles every step of the way. He inspired generations of artists and writers; created and co-created thousands of characters; defined the visual vocabulary of superheroes; and believed in the potential of comics to be both entertainment and art, long before most people imagined these stories would be remembered past the four weeks that they sat on newsstands.
This Thursday would have been Kirby’s 97th birthday. We’ve assembled some pieces to celebrating the life and work of the man American comics also knows as “the King.” This one focuses on Kirby’s strength as a cover illustrator.
Jack Kirby’s comics work is justly renowned, but one of the less-recognized aspects of his genius was his skill at crafting covers – even half-hidden on a supermarket spinner rack, or surrounded by other colorful titles on a vast magazine stand, his books could reach across the room to grab your attention. Once he left Marvel for DC in the early ’70s, Kirby took his designing skill with him. And even though DC tended to be less receptive to his input than Marvel had been (often bringing in other artists to rework his covers, or even replacing them entirely), when he was left to his own devices, Kirby produced a number of incredibly striking images for DC that eclipse even his Marvel highs, full of colorful and confounding characters.
