Are you ready for evil? Well ready or not, DC is giving it to you. This entire month DC comics has decided to do nothing but villainy, and at the core of treacherous scheme is Forever Evil. Unfortunately it has to compete with not one, but two different events from Marvel: Infinity and Battle for the Atom. Find out if DC has what it takes to get your event dollars with your Major Spoilers review!
Geoff John’s latest DC comics brain child, Trinity War, comes to an end with the latest issue of Justice League. How does the first event of the New 52 end up in a world where even Valiant is doing company wide crossovers? Find out after the jump! Warning: spoilers below.
Lobo is getting a redesign for Villains Month in the New52. The new design, by artist Kenneth Rocafort, was revealed on DC’s “What’s New in the New 52?” column on their blog. We’ve got the new look after the jump, as well as a few alternates to see where Lobo could have gone.
Today at Fan Expo Canada, DC Comics will announce (or has announced, or did announce depending on when you are reading this – Hello, Future People!), that Justice League America is uprooting and moving north to Canada. No, really.
Dial H, DC’s experiment in reviving the retro-grade IP, has come to an end. It has consistently been the most wild and imaginative comic to come out of the big two in recent years, and along the way has raised more questions than its answered. Will we finally get the revelations we have been waiting for? Or will the finale leave the readers wanting? Find out with your Major Spoilers review!
Superman and Batman. One is a modern god, as visible to the public as the sun, who inspires and leads with his example of protecting the innocent and believing even Lex Luthor has some good in him. Another strikes fear in the superstitious and cowardly criminals from the shadows, using the darkness as a weapon, a man who became a legend. Both are heroes. What happens when you put these two, seemingly opposite, superheroes together? Well that’s what this book aims to answer, see how it does with your Major Spoilers review!
Animal Man has managed to make it to issue twenty one when many other books, some starring more popular characters, have all met their fate at the chopping block of DC editorial. Whats more amazing is that Animal Man has maintained the same writer this entire time, when virtually every other book has changed creative teams more often than you change partners at a square dance. Does Animal Man still have the quality to justify still being published? Find out with your Major Spoilers review!
DC Comics has released the cover images and solicitation information for titles arriving in September 2013. The publisher is making it a point-X month, which means double, triple, and quad-shipping of titles, as DC Comics spotlights the villains of the New 52.
Another offering from DC’s New 52 (though its getting quite old); this time its Vibe. You know, Vibe, from the old Justice League Detroit comic, or from the currently running Justice League of America comic. Yeah, I don’t know why they brought him back either. It was probably to appease the great power that is Major Spoiler’s very own Matthew Peterson, seeing as how he and Geoff Johns are the only people with fond memories of him. Does Vibe hold up on his own? Find out after the jump!
DC continues to make the New 52, well, new with constant new waves of book. One of the titles to ride in on the most recent “wave” is Katana. The title character is also to be featured in Justice League of America and in the upcoming television show Beware The Batman. The real question is weather or not the character carry her own title. Well find out with this Major Spoilers review!
The Human Bomb has a long history with superhero comics. Debuting in the 1940s under the Quality Comics brand, he was a member of the Freedom Fighters. Able to detonate objects he touched, he became an obscure superhero in the DC universe, often associated by his team rather than an individual hero. With the new 52, this classic World War II character gets a cool, modern revamp. With a new secret identity and mini-series, the Human Bomb is ready to take on evil once again.
Statue company Kotobukiya has been rolling out a new statue the last few months representing a character from DC’s New 52. Kotobukiya has already announced Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Superman, and the Flash and now they have added a hero who has found more respect since the relaunch, Aquaman. Check out the pictures after the jump.
Now that DC has wrapped up its month of zero issues, it’s time to reflect on the gimmick to give current readers a glimpse of what came before the New 52 relaunch, and give new readers a chance to jump on the ongoing series. VOTE!
