Several months ago, I discussed the debut of Batman Eternal, which will begin next month, in April. Now comes word that DC will also have two other weeklies hitting the stores by October. Not only that, September will be another special month, with peeks into possible futures of many DC characters. We’ll see what could be happening to them five years from now.
If a comics company wants to get the attention of comics readers and collectors, there’s one sure way to do it … issue a number one! For example, Marvel has announced that at least two number one issues are on the way soon from them … Captain Marvel #1 and Daredevil #1. Some of my friends just wretch every time a first issue comes out. They’re mainly big collectors, and that means they have to shift their comics boxes around to reflect the new realities. And they HATE that! Still, you can ask any comics marketer, and you’ll get the
Just visit your local grocery store and you’ll discover that Valentine’s Day is coming soon. I’m always happy when that holiday goes by because it means February is half over, that month bringing the worst weather of the year where I live on the East Coast. Second, I’m not a big fan of love stories.
Just this morning Major Spoilers showed you a still of Batman holding Green Lantern’s power ring, and mere hours later the first clip from the upcoming animated movie showed the meeting between the two heroes. Watch the Justice League: War clip after the jump!
Remember back in the early days of The New 52 and the start of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s Justice League when Batman snatched Green Lantern’s ring from him? Well it looks like the scene will be played out in DC’s newest animated movie Justice League: War. Look at Batman with his smug grin after the jump.
I’m going to be honest: When J.H. Williams left Batwoman, I initially left with him. But lately, I’ve been wondering where Kate Kane is in the greater scheme of the New 52, and decided to check in on our mighty Batwoman to catch up, just in time for Zero Year… Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Last issue marked a turning point for the Amazing Amazon. Now that her life has changed (possibly forever), what does the world have in store for Wonder Woman? More importantly, what does SHE have up her non-existent sleeves? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
It’s Villains Month, and the Swamp Thing couldn’t make it to his book thanks to a mani-pedi at the Home Depot. Luckily (for some values of the word, anyway) Anton Arcane has a few minutes to spare, and he wants to tell you something… Something horrible. Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
The comics industry has always recognized that they need new readers to keep the business going. After all, those of us who have been reading comics for decades aren’t always going to be here to make our weekly jaunts to the local comics shop, as sad as it is to point that out. Most recently, DC launched the New 52 and Marvel began Marvel NOW in order to create places where fans who haven’t been reading their books for a long time could find a “jumping on” point and give comics a shot.
Lobo is getting a redesign for Villains Month in the New52. The new design, by artist Kenneth Rocafort, was revealed on DC’s “What’s New in the New 52?” column on their blog. We’ve got the new look after the jump, as well as a few alternates to see where Lobo could have gone.
Or – “How To Kill Your Franchise In 5 Years Or Less…” As a 30-year fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes, I was vaguely saddened to hear that the book was being cancelled when the news broke a couple of months ago, but it was a complex and remote sadness. Given that the New 52 era LSH had never really found its stride, part of me wondered if it wasn’t all for the best, but subsequent issues seemed to get some of their groove back. What does the future hold for the future? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Will They Rip Out Readers’ Hearts Again?” Barbara Gordon’s second Batgirl career has not been without its bumps, especially given that she was forced to kill her own brother in the line of duty, gaining the ire of the Commissioner of the Gotham City police, who has vowed to bring her down. Of course, he doesn’t know that she’s actually his daughter… Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
