With Valentine's Day around the corner, DC brings back to life a
romantic comic book that had its origins in the late 40's: "Young
Romance." In this modern-day edition, six stories feature some of
the most popular characters of the New 52. "Think it Through"
retcons the first encounter between Batman and Catwoman. In "The
Lighthouse," Aquaman and Mera relive a tragic love story from
Victorian times as they prepare for a coming storm. Batgirl has yet
another encounter with Ricky, the young man she saved from
Knightfall's madness, in a tale titled "Dreamer."
The dark and stylistically polarizing "Seoul Brothers," has
Midnighter and Apollo breaking up but not really, as they fight a
band of uranium dealers. Nightwing meets a butt-kicking bodyguard
named Ursa, who is not easy prey to Mr. Grayson's charm, in "Another
Saturday Night." Finally, "Truth or Dare" stars Wonder Woman as she
battles Eros and a couple of evil sirens to save Superman from their
influence. The issue includes 18 Valentine mini-cards as well. Fun
book, but a steep cover price.
