Tweet Showbiz reporter and scooper Nikki Finke has been languishing under a no compete since she left Penske Media’s Deadline.com, which so founded. But she’s back, and the very first scoop on her site is a purported line-up of superhero films that WB is planning for the next four years. According to Finke, this is to […]
Tweethttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDYqkl0rlRw A new trailer for the upcoming Constantine TV show was released over the weekend, and along with the assorted cheeky comments, damsels in demonic distress and trenchcoated action, there’s a shot of Dr. Fate’s helmet. This image gave rise to excitement and positive feelings among many observers. In fact, I liked this trailer, and […]
Tweet by Brandon Schatz As the whispers from last week’s Diamond Retailer Summit turned into audible noise, it quickly became apparent that the rumours were true: after 28 years with the company, Bob Wayne would be retiring from DC Comics when the company moves across country early next year. By all accounts, Wayne was and […]
Tweet Along those same lines, DC’s Burbank office is totally ramping up — although not in editorial, where the biggest defection is coming. and in some pretty big jobs — a VP of Development, a VP of publicity (possibly the position Alex Segura’svacated when he went back to Archie?) Even interns if you want […]
Tweet When DC announced their move to Burbank, I was told the first name on the list of people who weren’t going was SR VP of Sales, Bob Wayne. Wayne was already near retirement age, and had been dealing with some health issues. Plus he pretty much invented everything that we know about the current […]
TweetNext week sees the release of the third trade of Fairest, the spinoff series of Fables which has seen a number of writers and artists tell standalone stories spotlighting the different female characters of Bill Willingham’s world. Return of the Maharaja, however, tries something a little different still – writer Sean E. Williams and artist […]
Greetings, sales charts fans! It’s time once again to look at DC’s sales figures.
DC take five of the top ten spots on the Diamond sales charts, all of them Batman-titled books thanks to the debut of the weekly Batman Eternal. However, DC fall to their lowest Dollar Share and Unit Share in quite some time due to a combination of Marvel’s relaunch of Amazing Spider-Man (with a boatload of order incentives and variant covers leading to over a half million in sales) and their own inability to get out many of their bestselling titles on a consistent schedule—Forever Evil, Sandman Overture and Superman Unchained) didn’t ship this month, with Forever Evil’s lateness causing a ripple effect through other titles like Justice League of America.
Tweet All-Star Western #34 cover by Darwyn Cooke, who also draws the innards. I didn’t get a chance to run DC’s August Solicitations yesterday, but they announced that six books were getting canceled: All-Star Western, Superboy, Birds of Prey, and Batwing are all original New 52 books, ending with issue #32. Trinity of Sin: The […]
Tweet IGN has the details on a weekly Digital First Wonder Woman series, Sensation Comics, named after the 40s comic that prominently featured the Amazon warrior. It’s doubtless both a trademark win (when trademarks are abandoned others can use them) and a win for the oft left in the corner third leg of the DC […]
After some squawking over forcing retailers to order September’s “Future’s End” event comics blind due to the time needed to manufacture the lenticular covers, DC has revealed all the lineups and even a few covers. It’s the usual blend of mainstays, with a few yeoman back-ups. In other words, you must be reliable. As for whats in the stories, you can rely on a full array of face sewing, limb chopping, insect-leg attaching action as you like it!
TweetThere was a time, early on, when Vertigo was considered more of a horror and dark fantasy line. Swamp Thing, Hellblazer and Sandman all being prominent parts of the first wave. Vertigo’s widened its doors considerably since then to include straight up crime and science fiction titles, as well as fantasy with a lighter tone. It’s […]
Tweet Looks like he’ll be running…and FAST. Seriously, this is a fine trailer. And I don’t even like the Flash. And the Arrow crossover possibilities are endless. Grant Gustin will be playing the title character, Barry Allen, and he’s evidently a jolly sort who likes his powers. The Flash previously appeared in a one season […]
Tweet The first three minute look at Constantine, the upcoming NBC series based on the Hellblazer comics, has been released and there is good and there is bad. I liked the callouts to actual comics, like the insect covered call of the very first issue, and the angel winged Mannym as played by Harold Perrineau. […]

Another aid in getting just the right note of […]
Tweet Wow what a week for DC’s tv properties! iZombie, The Flash and Constantine have ALL been picked up for series commitments! The Flash, which is a spinoff of Arrow, will air on The CW, as will iZombie, based on the Chris Roberson/Mike Allred Vertigo book of the same name. And NBC has ordered Constantine, […]
