As often happens when event titles are underway, it’s a quiet month for new releases, with the notable exception of the THANOS RISING origin mini. And of course, as the months roll on, we’re getting an increasingly clear picture of how the assorted Marvel Now launches and relaunches are working out.
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 [...]

TweetDark Horse appears to be increasing their list of titles at a gradual but steady pace, with some laudable caution but what seems to be a specific agenda to build on their successes rather than simply allowing those successes to maintain their reputation over time.

Tweet Rising industry star George Rohac, who has been Oni’s Director of Business Development, and founder of Benign Kingdom, is moving on to become Director of Business Development for What Pumpkin Studios, the merchandise end of fantastically popular webcomic Homestuck. Rohac was recently instrumental in running the $2.4 million Kickstarter for a Homestuck game, so [...]
TweetSome spoilers I’ve never liked Captain Britain. For a country which pours scorn on anybody (Stephen Fry aside) with power, he seems like a weird addition to the national psyche. He’s a ticklist of irritating pieces – like all British characters during the 1980s, he’s got a drinking problem; he wears a Union Jack on his shirt; [...]
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 [...]
Tweet So Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air Tuesdays at 8, anchoring an all-new night of programming for ABC — that’s confidence.

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’.

TweetDespite the worrying lack of monkeys and self-saving princesses in the Valiant Universe so far, the relaunched company line has been a pretty spectacular success for the publisher.
