The Most Marvelous DC Comics Character (I Only Learned About Recently): Zatanna Zatara

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Feb. 8, 2021




It is always a good time when I learn about a fully-fleshed out character with a history, family tree, team affiliation, famous love-interest, and storyline. It is almost more of a mystery when a new character is discovered so late in the game I have to question why their existence ...

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 17, 2020
