“That Wonder Woman looks nice enough!”
Forget grimdark Batman v Superman, the real DC crossover to watch this week is “World’s Finest”!
Everything indeed is awesome for Batman, but not so much for the rest of the Justice League. While Wonder Woman and the JLA await their own movie, his biggest concern is probably which actor will play him next! Speaking of which, Will Arnett was a great Batman in The Lego Movie, a delightful film I advise everyone to go see.
It was both challenging and fun to draw this comic, and I hope you enjoyed the end result.
At this stage in pop culture everyone is aware of how terrible Superman’s civilian disguise as Clark Kent is, and how oblivious the people in Metropolis—and especially the employees of the Daily Planet—must be to not be able to make the connection. It’s an aspect that’s been joked about
and explained away
in too many ways to count.
But oh boy, anyone who’s watched a few episodes of Pokémon remembers that Clark Kent has got nothing on Team Rocket
. We all remember the scenario: Jessie and James dress up in lazy
, or just plain outrageous
costumes, yet our ever-perceptive and not-at-all-gullible protagonists never seem to recognize the angry woman with the voluminous purple hair and the overacting blue-haired man with a tendency to cross-dress, no matter how thin their ‘disguises’ are
, until it’s too late—by which time Ash, shocked, would gasp and dramatically proclaim, “It’s Team Rocket!” while the audience facepalms.
In all honesty though, Team Rocket are still two of my favourite cartoon characters, and this comic is mainly to pay homage to them. It was a lot of fun and quite a bit of work to draw them, and I hope I did them justice.

… DC’s continuity can be a bit overwhelming at times. (Here’s the issue in question
, by the way).
Note: I’d actually planned another comic for this week, but the US government shutdown ended, thus making my idea no longer relevant, so I decided to tackle another, somewhat older US government-related scandal.
Announcement: I will be changing my posting schedule to one comic per two weeks until further notice, so as to give each comic its due without rushing any of them, and to be more timely in my posting as opposed to always overshooting my Wednesday deadline. Expect the next one to be up on October 30.
