In the words of a long forgotten King, “Winter is coming.” If you don’t want to be stuck with last year’s winter fashions, you are going to want to check these custom made DC hoodies for all your nerdy-staying-warm needs.
Winter weather is doing more damage to the fine land of Major Spoilers than the Mayans ever did back in December. In the spirt of a giant white blanket of destruction continually falling from the sky the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day features another cold rogue in the form of Captain Cold.
DC Comics released a sneak peek of Superboy #5 that features a race between Superboy and Kid Flash. Hmmm… something seems very familiar about this…
A lot of panels being covered by the various Intardwebz outlets today, so why not offer up our Rapid-Fire Roundup of San Diego Comic-Con News.Â It’s better than a live blog, because you don’t have to wait for the three minute update, and you don’t have to jump from entry to entry; it’s all under one umbrella-ella-ella.
Lots of announcements coming out of the DC Comics panels today.Â Take the jump for word on Batman and more!
UPDATED WITH PHOTOS AND MORE ANIMATION INFORMATION
On tonight’s Major Spoilers Podcast, the panel will dive into another of their Top 30 Trade Paperbacks – Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.

They were Earth’s teenage defenders â€” unbeatable and unstoppable. Riding high, they took an eighth member â€” a young girl â€” into their ranks.
She was their downfall.
In the ’80s, THE NEW TEEN TITANS was DC’s most popular title and a huge sales success. The series reached a high point with the multi-part storyline now reprinted in this new edition featuring the epic that played on comics readers’ expectations and offered shocking revelations and surprising twists at every turn. Included are THE NEW TEEN TITANS (Volume One) #39 and 40, TALES OF THE TEEN TITANS #41-44 and ANNUAL #3.
THE JUDAS CONTRACT is by the fan-favorite team of writer Marv Wolfman (CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS) & penciller and cover artist George PÃ©rez (Avengers, WONDER WOMAN), with inkers Dick Giordano, Mike DeCarlo and Romeo Tanghal.
From the retirement of Robin and Kid Flash, to the birth of Nightwing and the introduction of Jericho, to the ultimate betrayal of a Titan â€” “The Judas Contract” kept readers positively riveted during its initial run and still has fans talking today.
If you would like your comments included in the show, please get them in before 7:00 PM (CDT) tonight!
Or – “Shvaughn?Â Is That You?”
My new manager Deon (who is wrong only half as often as Tom Grice, but only about 1/3 as pretty) and I got to talking the other day about the work of Jim Shooter, a writer whose work bounces all over the spectrum.Â For every Harbinger, Rai, or ‘Adventure Comics’-era Legion, there is a ‘Hank Pym punches Janet’ moment, a ‘Shadow State,’ or “MORE GORE FOR THE ORG!!!”Â Whichever Jim Shooter you get writes tightly plotted yarns with nice character bits, but the overall effect of the writing varies wildly, as anyone who ever read ‘Plasm’ can attest.Â Which Jim is onboard for this new run of Legion?
Or – “Round Seven!Â FIGHT!!!!”
It’s all been building up to this…Â
The Prince of Orphans!Â The Daughters of The Dragon!Â Lei Kung’s Secret Army!Â Dog Brother #1!Â The Tiger’s Beautiful Daughter!Â The Hordes of Hydra!Â The Bride of Nine Spiders! Luke “Sweet Christmas!” Cage!Â Fat Cobra!Â And that Iron Fist kid…
Know this, dear friends:Â Heads will be BUSTED.
Or – “It’s Always The Cute Ones…”
Megan Morse, also known as Miss Martian, has been something of an enigma among the Junior Justice League. Introduced during the “One Year Later” gap caused by 52, she has been pleasant, funny, bright and generally nice to be around. So, naturally, she’s a stone killer in disguise. Ever since it was revealed that she’s NOT one of J’onn J’onnz’ peaceful green Martians, but comes from the vicious line of white Martians, I’ve waited for her to grow fangs and try to eat people. After interacting with her own future self, and getting telepathically attitude adjusted, that day… has come!
