GUARDIANS OF METROPOLIS COVER & SPLASH PAGE GALLERY...
Having mentioned The GOLDEN GUARDIAN and The
NEWSBOY LEGION in the previous post, I thought it'd be a
good idea to showcase their four-issue series from 1994/'95. I'd
love to see these characters again in their own mag, but DC seem
unable to resist changing things for the worse, as witnessed not
too long ago in their INFINITY MAN/FOREVER PEOPLE
nine-issue run. What a waste of time and space that was.
If they were to revive these characters now, they'd prob-
ably make The Guardian a woman, and one of the Newsboys
would be a girl, gay, or trans-gendered. What's wrong with that,
you ask? It's not as creators JOE SIMON and JACK KIRBY
envisioned them, and it's not the characters that I read about in
the early '70s. Has any comicbook company ever changed a
character (in a major way) for the better? I can't think of
one, can you? If yes, let rip in the comments section.
In the meantime, enjoy the pretty piccies.
