News about Mark Millar's Netflix deal for productions and his slate of 2021 comics from his "Millarworld" characters - story at Comicbook

Huh? "Why does Supergirl hate Superman"?
DC Comics' Future State series sounds like it is hatched out of the same fan-pleasing soup that gave us Captain America as a nazi over at The House of Mouse Ideas.
"Lois Lane is an ambassador for Earth to the United Planets, which is a step up from a journalist but she does have connections. But how come she's the one who has to deal with Lex Luthor, ruler of planet Lexor, dominated with oh-so-familiar propaganda and divide-and-rule politics? And Krypto is dead."

Wonder Woman Magazine Cover December 2020
Parade Magazine has a list titled "75 Essential Batman Quotes From Comics, TV and Film Because, We All Wear Masks"
It is mostly quotes lifted from the Batman movies. Here's one that caught my eye:
17. “Criminals, by nature, are a cowardly and superstitious lot.” – Bruce Wayne/Batman, Batman: Hush
That's obviously not originally from anything to do with Hush, but from the very beginning of Batman, the 1940 2-page origin tale "The Legend of Batman," panel 11.
The "reinvention of comic books"
For the longest time, so many in certain parts of the industry have had limited views of what comics could – or should – be. “You publish in this format because that’s the way we always have, and you distribute this way for the same reason.” Comics was the ultimate “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” industry, even if the medium itself wasn’t. The problem is, in 2020, it finally broke.
