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. […]

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, […]
Tweet I think this statement from the family of Bill FInger, the long uncredited co-creator of most of the Batman mythos speaks for itself. The long memories of comics aren’t just for issue numbers, people. During a recent WonderCon Anaheim panel for Batman’s 75th anniversary, an audience member asked panelists for opinions about the fact that […]
TweetYou probably already know that DC has made weekly comics a big part of their strategy as they wind down their time in NYC and move to Beautiful Downtown Burbank. Two of the three series have already launched: Batman Eternal and The New 52: Futures End. The two titles couldn’t be more different and it’s time we […]
Tweet Fox and WB just released the very first trailer for this falls GOTHAM tv show! With great hesitation and uncertainty, I would tag this as “Nolan-esque.” And why not? The Christopher Nolan Batman movies are the benchmark now. Gotham has been ordered for a full season this fall on Fox, and it’s billed as […]

DC’s final C2E2 panel focused on Superman featuring the talent line up of Greg Pak, Aaron Kuder, with Scott Snyder and Charles Soule coming in a little late. Much of Superman’s 2014 was discussed along with Scott’s heart felt goodbye to Superman Unchained.
First up was Action Comics with Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder. The scene in issue 30 was shown where Doomsday kills polar bears. Pak went on to talk about how much fun he’s having writing Action and that issue 30 was a prelude to the “Doomed” storyline. He promised in the upcoming storyline we’d see “enormous comic book fights like you’ve never seen before.”

Dan DiDio gave his usual passionate speech about the industry and DC Entertainment’s product. But he did address the concerns from retailers about […]

TweetOh no! Batman’s dastardly diabolical villains have stolen the creator credits from DC’s Batman75 standee display at C2E2 in Chicago! Can you identify the creator(s) who created each iconic portrait of the Caped Crusader before the show closes on Sunday, guaranteeing each gets the credit they deserve for making Batman such an iconic figure for […]
Here’s the DCU and New 52 solicits for July — and as a BONUS becuase of the lead time needed for the lenticular covers, the September Future’s End solicits, with NO CREATIVE TEAMS ATTACHED, probably because ANYTHING could happen between now and then. We’ll have Vertigo and trades in the next post. Of note — the new Grayson, Teen Titans and Suicide SQuad books and HArley Quinn at Comic-Con by Amanda conner — a good time is guaranteed in that one.
