Have you been pre-ordering your DC Universe Bombshell Statues? If you have, then you’ll be very interested in the upcoming Black Canary Bombshell Statue that brings more rockabilly style to the DC characters.
New teasers have come out for DC’s Forever Evil event that kicks off in September with the New 52 Villains Month. Among them includes the original as well as a new image for Nightwing, Teen Titans, and Green Lantern. Take the jump for a look.
If you watched the “Beware the Batman” debut last Saturday on Cartoon Network you saw the first part of the animated Wonder Woman mini-episodes. If you weren’t tuned in then you really missed out. There will be another animated short this coming Saturday and DC has released a teaser for the upcoming Part 2.
If you have been picking up the Lego DC sets, you should have in your collection a plethora of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and at least one Green Lantern. There are a number of other San Diego Comic Con exclusive figures that are floating around as well (none of which have found their way into my pocket – thanks Spoilerites), but those are going to become holy grail items for some Lego fans. Why is that Aquaman gets a Minifig before The Flash?
Fortunately, before fans can riot, LEGO has announced a new Batman set…
… THAT INCLUDES A FLASH MINIFIG!
The big news from DC Comics coming from the San Diego Comic Con (right now) is the big villains event kicking off in the coming months. To tie into that, DC Comics has a new documentary film looking at the super-villains for the DCU.
There are so many announcements coming from the San Diego Comic Con, and the show hasn’t even started yet! For those attending the show this week, I’m sure there will be a lot of questions asked at the DC panels about the upcoming Harley Quinn series by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner.
Current estimates place the number of people attending this year’s San Diego Comic-Con to reach over 130,000. That’s a HUGE turnout, but it still can’t possibly include EVERY fan. So, what do you do if you aren’t attending this year? For instance, I won’t be there, as I’ve mentioned previously.
So the new Batman series arrived this past weekend, featuring the character designs of one Thomas Perkins (hint: he’s the fellow that designed our Critical Hit t-shirts).
Batman works to stop eco-terrorists Professor Pyg and Mister Toad from taking their revenge over a shady land deal done by Simon Stagg and Michael Holt. Meanwhile, an aging Alfred hires his replacement: a female bodyguard named Katana. When Alfred is accidentally captured by Professor Pyg and Mister Toad when they were targeting Bruce Wayne, Batman must work to save the captives and defeat Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad.

So who wants to win my everlasting love and affection? No, I’m not talking to my kids, but rather someone going to the San Diego Comic Con who can pick up all four of this year’s exclusive Minifigs from Lego.
The Trinity War crossover is slowly coming together. It all started when Pandora appeared in issues of the new 52, and from there it branched into developing the storylines of Justice League, Justice League Dark, and Justice League of America. These all lead up to the Trinity War after the Justice League’s satellite headquarters is bought down by Despero. Meanwhile, Amanda Waller and Steve Trevor gather their own Justice League of America to counter an out-of-control Justice League. With these explosive elements assembled, it is only a matter of time before something triggers their confrontation.
This week, Jason takes a long gander at Justice League #22, the issue that kicks off Trinity War.

See who they are after the jump.
