February is coming to a close and we see the faintest hints of spring peeking in this distance. But while we wait for a sunny thaw, we've got plenty of cool new things right now for you to read, watch, and discuss in our Community! Check it out:

 

 

DC'S SEXIEST MAN FINALS

After three weeks of semi-finals, we've reached the finals of our search for the sexiest man in the DC Universe! Tim Drake, who narrowly won the Pretty Boys bracket, faces off against Jason Todd and Deathstroke, who both handily won their brackets of Hunks & Daddies, respectively. But it wouldn't be DC Universe without a few surprises and what's more surprising than seeing Kite Man in the finals? Who will reign supreme—the silver daddy psycho killer villain, the super villain with the crazy gimmick, the (mostly) sane anti-hero hunk, or the adorkable Bat nerd? You can vote once every 24 hours, so be sure to rep your favorite fella hard!

A blood connection to the dark underbelly of the DCU’s history bubbles to the surface in Justice League #18 when the Legion of Doom returns and the history of the Legionnaires Club is revealed! .Plus, the mystery of Naomi's seemingly-perfect sleepy little town deepens in her self-titled second issue. Is Superman the key to the mystery?? Finally, if you're a fan of Jack Kirby, be sure to check out the first issue of the King's incredible classic horror series Black Magic!

This is the final week of Black History Week and our very own @HubCityQuestion is leading a special Trivia Tuesday at 2 PM PT/5 PM ET spotlighting African-Americans in the DC Universe! Also tomorrow Tuesday, February 25th at 5:30pm PT/8:30pm ET is a live Q&A with our DCYou Unscripted Finalists, Elora Powell, Molly Brady, and Royce Miller. Read here for more details! Finally, @Kon-El started a great thread asking if you could only read three writers' work for the rest of your life, who would you choose? We'd have to give it a long, deep think, but one of them would probably be Gail Simone; from Birds of Prey to Secret Sixshe can write a great team book like few others!
