PILLARS OF THE COMMUNITY

Be sure to join the Doom Patrol season 2 finale watch-along this Thursday, August 6th @ 6PM PT/9PM ET to help bid this weird, wonderful, whacked-out season goodbye with your DCU friends. Plus, test your knowledge with a Young Justice themed Trivia Tuesday on 8/4 @ 2PM PT/5PM ET. Prepare to get WHELMED! Finally, check out this thread where Community members are sharing their favorite variant covers. While there have been many, many great bonus covers over the years, our personal thought is that it doesn't get much better than artist Darwyn Cooke's variants from a few years back, especially the cover that had the original recipe Teen Titans rocking out on stage. What's your pick?
