Dear Chief Warner...


Could you all leave for a moment? I need to speak in private to... I can hardly believe I'm saying this... Ivy Town Chief of Police, Liza (Lady Cop) Warner.

God, where does one start?

*choke*

*sob*

I'll never forget the first time I saw you hanging out in that dollar box. There you were, Surrounded by New Guardians and Breaches. You didn't have to say anything. You said all you had to say on the cover of First Issue Special #4. There you were cocking back, ready to clock someone in the head with a billy club.

I knew you were coming home with me. It was at that moment that I knew my life was changed.

I knew.

When I opened up FIS #4's pages and saw you valiantly struggling with other people's VD, while fending off would-be rapists and dockworkers.

I knew.

I knew how special you were. Hell, it even said so in the comic's title.

And yet, no one else knew.

Until yesterday.

There you were in All-New Atom #6, wearing pants.

I've never been prouder.

God, I just cant believe how far you've come. You're the new police chief of Ivy Town!

With your experience syphillis and law enforcement and from reading the previous five issues of ANA, I just know you're going to fit in just perfectly.

Chief Warner, I... I just want you to know how proud of how far you've come. You've always been destined for greater things. All it took was someone to recognize it. You're going to be OK. You're in good hands.*

All I'll ever ask of you is this: When you find find yourself looking out across the expansive reservoirs of Ivy Town's Sewage Treatment Plant, I hope you'll remember how special you are. Remembering always that you're part of The Creator's (Bob Kahnigher) vast and wonderful plan.

With love,
Devon

*Thanks, Gail!

I fully expected Dwarf Star to be revealed as the Killer in Boots.

Soon....soon.

I already know that I'm going to regret putting this out there, but man. Lady Cop is stacked.

Superman wasn't the only one who returned this year. A great moment for the DCU. A great moment for fans!

I know! Between the return of Lady Cop and Jenet Klyburn in JSA Classified #19, I hardly know what to do with myself anymore!

As much as the tight pants are nice...the original miniskirt is just, so....classic!

I agree with sleestak. And I truly advocate the return of "Rooftop Romeo", "VD ridden latino gal" and all the special people part of Lady Cop's world.
