Pop Culture Roundup: New Super Powers; Nostalgia Journal; Hot Wheels; Stranger Things

Nice: The cartooning team of Art Baltazar and Franco are back with a fresh all-ages title from DC Comics.
Aw yeah, the World’s Greatest Heroes are back in a new, all-ages miniseries—except for Batman! Superman helps out by cleaning up in Gotham City, where he discovers a clue that sends Wonder Woman into space to find the Caped Crusader. Her journey brings her a step closer to Batman, but can she uncover the truth behind his disappearance? From the award-winning creative team that brought you TINY TITANS and SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES!

Sad news: Gordon Francis Bailey Jr., creator and editor of the Nostalgia Journal passed away last month. Bailey's 'zine was part of the huge 1970s nostalgia craze and gave roots to what eventually became the Comics Journal.

Bailey was a prolific author, too, writing a number of non-fiction, fantasy and science fiction books over his career. There's a tribute to him here.
