Power Girl and Huntress are just making their presence known in the DCnU proper after living there for five years. What waves are they going to make? Can they get back home? What is Helena’s last name here? Find some of the answers in the Major Spoilers review after the jump. . .
DC Comics has released a sneak peek of Huntress #5 that arrives in stores this week.
Even though it is October, DC continues to roll out new number one issues. Helena Bertinelli (or is it?) gets the relaunch treatment this month, and we don’t want to leave anyone behind in our New 52 coverage.
It must be pretty wonderful to work at Google. All day long you work on things that you love, you try not to do evil, and you get to hear guest lectures from some of the most famous people in the world. Paul Levitz was invited to speak at Google last month to talk about comics and the Legion of Super-Heroes.
Of all the super teams with long histories, The Legion of Super-Heroes has seen many reboots and retcons to the point where even those in the know may be scratching their heads in confusion. This week Matthew Peterson and Stephen Schleicher take a peek behind the covers of Adventure Comics #517 to see how the founding members’ histories have been tweaked… again.
With Lex Luthor fanning the flames of hate on another planet and keeping Batman occupied in Gotham, can Superman stop Lex from turning an entire planet against him?
In the future, Gotham’s protector has a new name … Terry McGinnis. After thugs from Metropolis start appearing on Gotham streets, Batman decides that maybe it’s time to pay a little visit to Superman’s city where an old foe is hatching a plan to eliminate the Man of Steel.
While Superman is in space protecting an alien planet from a deadly meteorite shower, Lois is kidnapped by a fanatical cult. This looks like a job for … Batman?! Batman heads to Metropolis to rescue Lois but will he get to her in time?
Paul Levitz run on Legion of Super-Heroes begins in May, but for today’s Art Appreciation Moment, we have a sneak peek of the first page, by artist Yildiray Cinar.
If you were curious what would happen to your favorite teen heroes from the future, DC shared news yesterday that Paul Levitz is teaming with artist Yildiray Cinar for a brand new Legion of Super-Heroes series.
After Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul leave Adventure Comics, plans are in place for a four-issue arc that kicks off the next big Superman event.Â DC Comics announced Brainiac & The Legion of Super-Heroes by James Robinson and Julian Lopez.
James Robinson & Julian Lopez will provide a 10-page story about the Legion members who are in the 21st Century; Sterling Gates & Clayton Henry will provide a 10-pager about the Legion in the 31st Century; and Eric Trautmann & DC newcomer Pier Gallo (wait till you see this guyâ€™s stuff!) will provide a 10-pager about General Laneâ€™s Human Defense Corps.
Finally some answers to what happened to those lost Legion members.Â Brainiac & the Legion of Super-Heroes will run through Adventure Comics, Superman, Supergirl, and one other title to be named in March, that will lead to the big Superman event this summer.Â I really got a kick out of the Lightning Saga story, and now that we have some idea of where the Legion stands following Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds saga, this could be the start of much more Superman/Legion comic books.
Since Paul Levitz announced his return to writing for DC, anyone else thinking that To Be Named Title in March, just might be a new Legion of Super-Heroes book?
Paul Levitz posted the following across the DC Entertainment blogs moments ago.
Thank you for your efforts, your support, and your contributions to DC Comics over the long years that Iâ€™ve had the honor of serving as part of DCâ€™s leadership team. Together, our staff, creative contributors, readers, retailers and business partners have helped bring us to the beginning of what looks to be a new golden age for comics in the United States, and one that will bring more respect for the talent and the medium.
It will come as no surprise to anyone whoâ€™s heard me answer a comic convention request, â€œWhen are you going to do more Legion stories?â€ that Iâ€™m going to step away from my executive desk in coming months to resume my writing career, in comics and hopefully other forms as well. One of the lessons I learned from my many great teachers, from Frank McCourt through Joe Orlando and Jenette Kahn, is that creative work is more enduring than executive acts, and I look forward to adding to the stories Iâ€™ve told. Expect to see my byline at DC, as it has appeared for almost 37 years, adding what I can to a mythology and company that has my enduring affection, and expect to see me around the world of comics, which I hope never to leave. I already hear Karen and Dan sharpening their blue pencils with glee, waiting for my first pages.
DC will remain in the hands of the people who have had ultimate responsibility for its success throughout the past two decades, the management team of Warner Bros., headed by Barry Meyer and Alan Horn. They have encouraged our growth as a creative enterprise, and I have confidence that the people they will select to join the DC team, beginning with Diane Nelson, will do their best to make DC a success. While that transition process is taking place, Iâ€™ll continue to run DC until the baton can be carefully passed, and afterwards will have a role in which I can provide my advice and help.
On a personal note, I deeply appreciate the warmth and friendship I have found in these halls since my first visit, as a 13 year old comics fan. The relationships I have made here, including one that began in a DC circulation meeting and developed into the first DC marriage in four decades (thereby rebooting a grand tradition?), have been and will remain central to my life.
And now, if you forgive me, the future is calling.
