When I was growing up, I loved 80-page Giants! In those days, these books cost like a quarter and were reprints from 5-10 years earlier. But I hadn’t read them, so I pored over each and every story! It was an adventure into tales I hadn’t read before, but still grew to love. DC Universe: Rebirth #1 is a lot like those wonderful comics. There’s a LOT going on, some of it touching on recent comics stories, others going back into previous DC storylines I enjoy remembering.

This Wednesday will be the beginning of the newest DC Comics event – Rebirth! DC Universe: Rebirth #1 will be available in two days! Eighty pages for just $2.99! Of course, DC hopes they’ll get a response closer to The New 52 than DCYou, but we’ll see. Rebirth is getting quite a lot of attention already, and some stores are doing special things to highlight this DC event.

I count myself fortunate to have not only read Batman issues 1 through 51, but to be able to review many of those books here at MajorSpoilers.com! All good things must come to an end, however, so let me share my thoughts about the final Snyder/Capullo issue with you.

Last weekend was a BIG one for DC Comics and Warner Bros. Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice did well at the box office, setting records all over the place. I know a lot of people who went to the first Avengers film just to see the characters in live action together for the first time, and that may have helped BvS as well. I saw the movie as well, and while it had its problems, I loved it overall! But for comics fans, the biggest news came out of WonderCon in California as DC released its slate of creative

Next week, we’ll get the full rundown of comics coming from DC in May 2016, but for now, here’s a rundown of what the comic book publisher has planned for all of its New 52 #52 issues!

I always like to point out that this is a tough time for Superman. He’s incredibly powerful as well as unbelievably moral. You just KNOW he’s going to do the right thing all the time. That can make for dull reading sometimes! One of the best things to come out of Convergence was Superman coming to The New 52 universe with his wife Lois and their son. That book did very well on many levels, so it made sense for DC to continue their story in DCYou!

In the last week, there were two big indications of change happening soon in the Big Two comics companies – Steve Rogers returning as Captain America and Dan DiDio hinting that there will be a big “Rebirth” at DC this summer via Twitter. I have to say that I’ve reached a breaking point when it comes to change. Can I take much more of it in my comics? For the first time, I can understand why some people drift away from the industry!

It’s been a rough couple of months for DC Comics. With the launch of the new DCYou initiative, their hopes were high that they might regain some of the market share they’d lost near the end of The New 52. Well, it didn’t turn out that way. FIRST, SOME PERSPECTIVE The New 52 was a big deal as far as sales go, particularly when it started. A relaunch of nearly all the DC characters (except for Batman and Green Lantern, which were already successful), this event began with lines waiting at local comics shops on Wednesday mornings. Collectors went nuts

This week I brought home the last hardcover of Grant Morrison’s Zenith series, which I’ve discussed in this column and reviewed before. I was elated! I remember reading this 2000 AD tale years ago and being blown away by it! It still is ahead of many comics coming out today! I was poking around online to see if other people were as happy as I was. I did find some who shared my feelings, but I also found a perception that genuinely stunned me: “It’s too old to be any good.” In other words, it might have been great when

A couple of weeks back, I talked about the struggles retailers were having when ordering the books they would be selling. That included DC’s Convergence, two months in which titles would appear that might exist only during that time. Well, as reported right here at MajorSpoilers.com, DC announced on Friday how they’re going to proceed after the Convergence event.

Wonder Woman Origin
Brian AzzarelloDCFeaturedMoviesNew 52Wonder WomanZack Snyder

For a superheroine who’s been around since the Golden Age of comic books, Wonder Woman never had an origin reboot until 2011. The story was always that Hippolyta wanted a child, crafted one from clay and wept over the child all night until she emerged as a micro version of the Diana Prince we know and love. In one of the best moves of the inception of DC’s New 52 universe, writer Brian Azzarello grounds her conception and birth – for lack of a better word. Now, Wonder Woman is an illegitimate daughter of Zeus – a demi goddess among

All girls like Wonder Woman. It’s practically an adage in the comic book community. Well, I’m a woman who had zero interest in Wonder Woman, Diana Prince or whatever else you wanted to call her until a few short weeks ago. Let me explain to you why I wouldn’t wonder and where my conversion lies.
