I understand many of you are fans of Amethyst, and the character is returning to the DCU in September, as the company launches four new titles on the world. Take the jump for your first look at the character from the first issue.
This September, DC Comics will release 0 issues for all the New 52 titles it is currently publishing, and launching four new titles as well.
Or – “At Least They’re Committed To Multiple Genres…”
Many people (including Major Spoilers’ own Stephen) have been voicing dissatisfaction with the proliferation of superhero titles on the stands, though it’s hardly a new issue. I recall the same complaints abounding when I began reading comics back in the early 1980s, and I find it admirable that DC’s New 52 relaunches included a western, a couple of sorta-war titles as well as books aimed at younger readers. Of course, one of those kinda sorta war titles went down with issue #8, but now we get to see what they’ve crafted to replace it…
Or – “Another DCU Ending… But Not Quite The Same Story.”
Last week brought us the final issue of Static Shock, an issue which left Virgil’s ultimate fate up in the air. This issue wraps up Mister Terrific’s run as a solo character, but the way that it ends for Michael Holt is somewhat different…
The New York Post has released the first image of the new look for Shazam! and he now sports a hoodie in his costume.
Or – “In Which We Learn How A Creature Of Living Shadow Is A Grandfather…”
The path from Victorian neer-do-well to undying creature of shadow has been a long one for Richard Swift. For all the tales James Robinson has told of the Shade’s century-and-a-half of life, we’ve never seen the moment where the balance between flesh and shadow turned irrevocably to the side of darkness…
It’s been six months since DC shook the comic industry and gave it a much needed boost. Six months and six issues later, and we’ve seen (or nearly seen) the completion of the first story arcs. While some of the titles have already been announced as being canceled, we thought it was time to take another look at the New 52 and see where we stand on each of the titles.
DC has announced another new title as part of the New 52, called The Ravagers, and the first cover has surfaced that shows off members of the teen team.
We’ve seen almost all of Batman’s villains appear in the Bat-titles, but until today, we hadn’t seen Mr. Freeze. Good news, we won’t have to wait that much longer.
The creative team announcements continue to roll out of DC Comics, which seems to be a way the company is keeping things relatively fresh for new readers. With Jeff Lemire moving to Justice League Dark, where does that leave Peter Milligan?
With the announcement that DC Comics is canceling six of their New 52 titles to make way for six new titles, one has to wonder if the writing was on the wall, since the beginning, and what approach the company might take going forward?
Hot on the heels of the news that Power Girl and Huntress are becoming the World’s Finest in Earth 2, DC Comics has announced the official next wave of New 52 titles.
