Jason sat down and read all of the DC Comics released this weeks, and reviews them in this installment of Jason Reads Comics.
It’s a rough comics week for me. Several of my favorite characters are losing their ongoing titles, including Hawkman. But the part that leaves me saddest is the final Geoff Johns story in Green Lantern #20.
With digital very likely to be a major player for comics in the future, many comics companies are getting an early start on the entire “revolution” that may see us downloading issues from an FTP site rather than going to our local comics shops … sooner than we think!
Blockbuster season is officially underway with Iron Man 3 and Stark Trek Into Darkness both in theaters. Not wanting to let anyone forget about the other major comic book property being adapted this summer, Warner Bros has released a new trailer for Man of Steel that is filled with Zod, fighting, flying, and lasers! Let the destruction begin!
The DC animated films that Warner Bros. have been releasing regularly for the last few years have been mostly great. While I’m not the biggest fan of Superman, one can still appreciate the Big Blue Boy Scout. Since Superman: Unbound came out earlier this month and we here at Major Spoilers have a review for you just pass the jump.
Slade Wilson gets the statue treatment in this new ARTFX Statue from Kotobukiya. A whole gallery of images after the jump as well as the price you’re gonna pay to get this super soldier into your collection.
Or – “The Countdown Has Begun…”
With the announcement on the cancellation of Legion of Super-Heroes, I’m wondering if they’re actually going to take this chance to shatter everything that we love about the 31st Century. Of course, if the last few issues have been any indication, they planned to do that anyway. Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Watch this and then time yourself on how long it takes for you to complete your pre-order for Arkham Origins.
James Robinson will no longer be writing Earth 2 after issue #16. He announced the leave on Twitter yesterday, along with an announcement of his full departure from DC’s writing stable. His words exactly.
So as of today I am leaving Earth 2 with Issue #16. It’s been a blast. Man, it’s a lovely day. Think I’ll take Rex to the beach.
Yes, this also means I’m no longer working at DC Comics. Best wishes and regards to Dan, Geoff and everyone.
Personally, I was thoroughly enjoying Earth 2 and am sad to see him go, but this at least feels a bit more amicable than most of the recent DC partings. Issue #16 will be in stores in October.
Or – “Get Ready For The Nightmares…”
There’s a new Ventriloquist in town, and she… she…
She scares me. Your Major Spoilers review (from behind the sofa) awaits!
DC Comics seems to think so. In the recently released solicitations for August, almost a third of DC’s output will be Batbooks. But is all that bat a bad idea for business? Major Spoilers runs the numbers.
In the latest installment of Super Power Beat Down, Thor and Superman slug it out.
