    No amount of words or drawings will ever accurately describe how meaningful these characters are to me. More importantly, how EXCITING it is at long last to see my childhood DREAM of the Justice League on big screen. LOADS of #DCEU news dropped yesterday, including a sweet new title-card logo. Couldn’t help but #UniteTheSeven in a doodle. @batmanvsuperman is again, a FANTASTIC film by Zack Snyder that I believe served it’s existential and deconstructive purpose with or without the unfair general audience scrutiny. As a film once said, “the night is darkest before the DAWN,” and that’s exactly where we’re heading. It’s all part of the plan. In a world full of cynicism and hatred, as accurately depicted in BvS, symbols of hope and inspiration that lead through example, faith, and action are absolutely necessary. Long story short, BvS is a mirror of our reality, and I don’t know about you, but a little bit of optimism can go around for all our sakes. The world is growing darker day by day, and honestly, I look to fiction and art of heroes such as these to soothe my heart and lift my spirits towards a better tomorrow. I don’t know where this post is going anymore, but I guess it’s my way of trying to say how meaningful DC Comic superheroes are to me, as well as the art and inspiration that pours out through multiple platforms, mediums, actors, artists, directors, writers, etc. #JusticeLeague and #DCRebirth led by @geoffjohnsdc currently holds a huge spot in heart. I just want to say thank you to all of you. Keep on creating and inspiring the world. Hopefully we can all stand united one day. We can do better.

  • Doodle in the wake of all the @dccomics #DCRebirth excitement. There’s never a better time to read DC Comics than now. With their new Rebirth titles, they’re upholding 70+ years of legacy while inviting and including new readers of all ages. .

    In Action Comics #957 (THATS RIGHT, 956 MONTHS SINCE ACTION COMICS 1 and SUPERMAN’S FIRST APPEARANCE), for example, Lex Luthor has been a member of the Justice League after saving the world for the past year. Now, with a Superman seemingly dying in battle, Lex is pulling a Syndrome and taking it upon himself to become Metropolis’ savior with his new suit, while “honoring” Superman’s symbol.

  • Luis Vielma was a 22 year old student at Seminole State College who worked on the Harry Potter ride at Universal Studios Orlando.
    .
    As a former Disney Cast Member at the Magic Kingdom, I am familiar with Orlando and the large community of theme park entertainers that serve as the life force of the city. Camaraderie, friendship, family and love are the bonds that are formed within this community on a DAILY basis. My heart goes out to Luis Vielma and his families and friends. He’s but one of the many, many, stories and lives tragically lost in #Orlando. Love is love is love is love. Thank you Luis for bringing magic into the world and spreading joy to countless individuals from all over the world. We remember you and Orlando. #Always
