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
Continuity. The bane of many a comic book reader. At times, when used right, it can add to the reading experience but other times can make for a frustrating or downright miserable one. But should it matter that much? Is it that important? I say no, so continue on, Dear Reader, and find out why!
In this issue: Stephen brings up continuity brought on by major crossover events, Rodrigo pitches a Wonder Woman television show, and Matthew… well, he’s Matthew.

Well, duh, we already know Clark Kent is Superman and has been on the Smallville television series for the last 9 years, but one has to remember the Superman costume, and powers like flying have been kept strictly on the down-low to avoid mixing the Smallville universe with the DC in-continuity one. That might all change come Sunday when it MIGHT be announced that Superman’s outfit will make an appearance in the season premiere of season 9 – aptly titled “Superman”. Does this mean we might see Tom Welling take over the film franchise down the road?Â Another rumor has
Ever since Boom! Studios announced it was adapting Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? into comic book form, it has been on my radar as something I really want to check out.Â Boom! apparently senses my desire to dive into the first issue that arrives next week, as it sent a sneak peek of the first issue for all to enjoy.
Everyone seemed to really take to our This Bear Reads Comics image posted earlier today, and many asked for a T-Shirt or other product featuring the cute cuddly polar bear that they could snatch up and buy. Your wish is granted.Â We changed the design slightly to ensure we don’t get sued by a certain big comic book company. The Major Spoilers Merch Store now features the T-Shirt design for men, women, and children.Â And unlike the F’Continuity! shirt, you can change the color of these to your liking. Here’s the breakdown of the Men’s Tee Product Details Men’s Heavyweight
The box office estimates are in and Star Trek beamed to the number one spot, bringing in an estimated $76.5 million over the weekend.Â I had a chance to check the movie out on Saturday, and I liked it quite a bit.Â I think it did a good job of bridging the old Star Trek universe with the new one (I wore my F’Continuity T-Shirt just in case), and I like how they were able to tell an origin story without getting too over the top. I did have a few concerns and problems with the feature, but there were
Arriving in stores this week is the next Eureka mini-series from creators Andrew Cosby and Jaime Paglia.Â Unlike a few other sites that don’t honor embargos, we did wait until today to bring you this sneak peek of the in continuity series written by Dukes of Hazzard scribe Jonathan L. Davis.
This week, Joe Quesada hands out some sage advice on how to break into the comic book industry as a writer of fine tales. So my suggestion to those guys is always, â€œKeep it basic. If your character is the Silver Surfer, then write a Silver Surfer, but keep it basic, the way he is now in his current incarnation. Donâ€™t give me the reinvention yet. Weâ€™ll see what you can do first in the current boundaries that we have, in the current continuity.â€ And I think a lot of people miss the fact that 90% of the stuff our
Major Spoilers fan Josh P. was the first member of the Major Spoilers Legion to pick up the F’Continuity t-shirt we are selling in the store, and he sent along a picture to prove that he received it. That shirt sure does look good!Â And check out that shelf porn going on in the background.Â I sense a Major Spoilers contest forming right now… Thanks so much for being a fan of Major Spoilers, Josh!Â There’s something special being put in the mail just for you.
