PILLARS OF THE COMMUNITY

What if the Man of Steel's rocketship had landed not in the middle of Kansas but in Soviet Russia at the height of the Cold War? The DC Universe Book Club tackles writer Mark Millar's classic Superman Elseworlds tale, 'Red Son,' this week to discuss the fallout. From the Communist Party to the super-cute puppy... @TheFakeTadpole has launched a debate by asking, who is your favorite super pet? (We love all of the many meta critters of DC, but Ace the Bat-Hound has to be our guy.) Finally, @Batwing52 asks the Community for their favorite books that don't get the attention they deserve. What's yours?
