New Characters Childminder & Miss Murder (Flash & Stargirl Spoilers)

DC Comics is publishing plenty of new comic book characters today, Childminder and Miss Murder are just two that get splash page treatment.

It seems to be a bit of a new characters day for DC. New superhero characters emerge from both Lazarus Planet as well as Supergirl: The Lost Children. But we also have a couple of the "let's reveal a new character with a big splash page and a logo of their name" variety. Of course, in Flash #791, that means having to deal with newly dead characters… for now at least.
