Harley fans rejoice! The crazy lady now has an ongoing series in the New 52 and readers are introduced with this week’s zero issue written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner with a staggering amount of artists. Major Spoilers finds out if this will be worth your hard earned money or a cancellation waiting to happen. Oh and there’s that little thing about Harley killing herself as well.
There are so many announcements coming from the San Diego Comic Con, and the show hasn’t even started yet! For those attending the show this week, I’m sure there will be a lot of questions asked at the DC panels about the upcoming Harley Quinn series by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner.
Or – “A Man Destined To Be At The Center Of Time-Travel Shenanigans, No Matter The Universe…”
The JLU version of Jonah Hex had an iconic moment when he identified the power of Chronos as the result of time-travel. When asked how he knew, he simply grunted, “Experience…” Now that Booster Gold has arrived in his turf, Hex is once again forced to deal with future greenhorns and their baggage, and it’s probably not going to be an easy row to hoe. Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
The Baltimore Comic-Con is thrilled to announce that fan-favorite creators Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner will be returning as guests to this year’s show, taking place the weekend of September 7-8, 2012 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Or – “BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE!”
The Quality Comics stable of heroes have served DC well since they relaunched ‘em back in the 70s, but mostly as supporting characters or as a team of Freedom Fighters. Now that the New 52 has The Ray, The Doll-Man, Phantom Lady and an Uncle Sam who looks like Samuel L. Jackson, we’re on our way for a revival of the team, ala Marvel’s ‘Ultimates.’ How has the Human Bomb’s first solo series treated the explosive Freedom Fighter? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
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.
Dr. Zoe Wallace, the protagonist of Jimmy Palmiotti’s and Justin Gray’s new graphic novella RETROVIRUS, is one of the best in the field of viral evolution, a brilliant young scientist who attracts the attention of one of the world’s largest and most powerful bio-pharmaceutical corporations. Zoe doesn’t usually use her expertise for profit, but when Bio-Pharm gives her the chance to research a prehistoric virus, she can’t pass up the chance. However, once Zoe is in their Antarctic compound, face-to-face with a perfectly preserved Neanderthal, Bio-Pharm’s secrets may ensure that she never sees the outside world again.
And Zoe has a secret of her own—one that turns her research from theoretical to deeply personal.
One of the niche titles to emerge from DC’s New 52, All Star Western’s tales of Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham have told some pretty good stories in its run so far. Now, in the middle of Zero Month, the book presents a tale of Jonah Hex’s past and provides some details of the mysterious gunslinger’s past. Get ready to slap leather, the Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Not Entirely What I Had Expected…”
One of the earliest female heroes of the Golden Age of Comics, Phantom Lady is usually notable for being (in Rodrigo’s words) “nakeder” than many other super-heroes. Now, she’s back on her feet in the post-Flashpoint New 52, and her origin story is about to be told. Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
The list of comic book luminaries appearing at this year’s Long Beach Comic & Horror Con continues to grow as Industry pioneer Jimmy Palmiotti joins the ranks of this year’s special guests for the event which will take place November 3-4 at the Long Beach Convention Center.
The panels are in full swing at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, and though we aren’t at the show, we’ve dug through the drek and present a rundown of the news from DC Comics’ The Dark and The Edge panel.
A comic book and magazine hybrid is nothing new, with most dropping out of the picture shortly after release. Will Creator-Owned Heroes be able to beat off this trend and be a viable monthly title?
