TweetWith Amethyst 8 comes the end of the series, from Christy Marx and Aaron Lopresti. Bringing back Amethyst was another experimental move from DC, but one which has launched off a viable character for them to use in future… just not in her own ongoing series.
TweetThis May DC released a free guide in magazine-like format, about the size of a small prestige graphic novel itself, containing a list of “essential graphic novels” and also a “chronology” for new readers. It’s not a bad idea considering what a difficult time new readers, or those who have left for awhile, can have [...]
Tweet WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara —whom we’ve been watching closely since he took over in March—has made his first big shake-up: ousting TV head Bruce Rosenblum and giving the TV and home entertainment divisions a reorg. Buried in The Hollywood Reporter’s story is a teeny tidbit of some interest to DC Comics Kremlinologists: Warner Home [...]
TweetThe CBLDF is marking the end of Geoff Johns’ GREEN LANTERN run this month with a benefit that will feature an interview with Johns and more. The venue is the Avalon Bardot Theater in LA. More details in the PR below: On Friday, May 24, come celebrate the creativity of Geoff Johns at Greenest Night: A Celebration [...]
Tweet If there’s one writer who’s most associated with the Legion, it’s Paul Levitz who wrote the book on and off between 1977-1989, and most recently starting in 2010. Yesterday’s announcement of the cancellation of the latest Legion books led the former DC publisher to reflect a bit on Facebook: DC’s officially announced the end [...]
TweetDC’s August Solicitations are you and we’re looking at the cancellation axe falling again. Threshold – gone with #8 Legion of Super Heroes – gone with #23 Demon Knights – gone with #23 Dial H gone with #15 — a double-sized issue to wrap it up. No surprises with any of those books. None were [...]
TweetRight, it’s Friday, you’re buzzing on whatever it is you kids buzz on, and you’re ready for the weekend to kick in. But! Allow me to make you just that little bit buzzier, courtesy of the announcement of a new one-off called ‘American Vampire Anthology’. An 80-page special from Vertigo Comics, with the following SPECTACULAR [...]
While Marvel’s hit making factory breaking up over budgets could be cause for smiles across Riverside Drive at Warner Bros. it appears they are having their own dispute with Thomas Tull’s (above, left with WB’s Jeff Robinov) Legendary Pictures, Variety reports, the powerhouse studio that has produced the Batman films, the Hangover films, the Zack Snyder Films, and the upcoming most important superhero movie of all times, Man of Steel. In other words, just about everything except Harry Potter that was a mega hit in the last decade. Why?
TweetDC’s new series, launched by Gail Simone and Freddie Williams II, is a really interesting idea for a series. Essentially pitting a somewhat corrupt and immoral police force against a group of young superhero vigilantes, it makes for a fairly uncompromised story, which offers the most overtly political work Simone has done so far in [...]
Tweet These graphic novels have been chosen because they were all released in the past 6 months and equally combine qualities of well-crafted concepts and remarkable artwork to create solid visual narratives. They aren’t the only great graphic novels that have been released in recent months, but they are notable, and worth considering as near-misses [...]
TweetIt’s day 2 of C2E2 and we’re liveblogging the “Batman/Superman 101″ panel. (And to think, it used to be a Superman/Batman world… I guess the pecking order has changed.) Get ready to start hitting reload. Our cast: Jimmy Palmiotti, Bob Harras, Chris Burnham, James Tynion, The Layman and Kenneth Rocafort.
TweetKatana, if you haven’t heard, has received her own series, and given a chance to spread her wings and the main focus of a narrative, it’s interesting to see whether her character can handle that kind of scrutiny. That requires a certain depth of personality, motivation, and a world to move in that will at [...]
