The JL8 Thread

I’ve been following this webcomic by Yale Stewart for some time which tells the adventures of friendship and being a super powered child through the eyes of an eight year old Justice League. No Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman here, only little Clark, Bruce and Diana…at least not yet.

You got Darkseid teaching gym class, little villains in the making, Diana’s birthday party, Green Lantern Scouts and more. If you got a kid, get them hooked at once. If you’re a reader you got a favorite moment? Post them here!

Great thread, @mrsteamer96! I read JL8 daily in 2012-13. I’ve lost touch with the series over the years but absolutely loved it! The humor is spot on for comic fans, since they often throw in subtle references to the hero’s adult versions. It reminds me of Muppet Babies.

Some of my favorite moments were at Diana’s birthday party - Bruce giving expert advice to Clarke about his crush.

I absolutely love JL8! It got on my radar about four years ago and I’ve been keeping up with it ever since. There’s a lot of good moments, but for me, nothing beats the “brooding smorgasbord” :joy::joy:

Is Kara crushing on her cousin? Also, what does Batman mean “his stories?”

No Kara here, just Karen.

Dude, Alfred was a regular Austin Powers in his day.

If I remember correctly the guy that made the series didn’t know they were related until after he established her crush, I wouldn’t read any more into it

Eh, they are just children. My sister thought she and my cousin were supposed to get married when they were around 5.

I might have to look into the series, I stopped a few years back when the creator got into major controversy and stopped posting. Has he come back or is this more of an appreciation thread?

I heard about that, it was sometime in 2014. This comic still gets updated every now and then.

Got to love the pro reading theme throughout.

Yeah, I loved checking this series every week. It has every aspect of great character building, emotional moments, and a true understanding of what makes these superheroes relatable. They all had their own distinct personalities that went to the core of their mainstream counterparts. I’m not entirely sure what went on behind the scenes with the creator but I as a worst case scenario I would just separate the art from the creator.

Everyone’s reading innocent stuff and then Bats is reading the art of war.

Moments later, J’ohnn experienced paradise in his mouth.
