This week, I have a great conversation with Sterling Gates, who has been bringing many DC Comics stories and characters to life including Supergirl, a Man of Steel prequel book and, until it’s recent cancellation, Justice League’s Vibe. This interview took place before the recent news, but Sterling gives us so much good information about the character and diversity in comics that I had to share that with you. Also, Mr. Gates talks about his intriguing roommate, and the story is just in time for Halloween! Don’t miss it!
Then everything wraps up with the latest “News & Previews!”
The DC WTF gatefold cover month begins in April but a few of them have started to appear on the Internet and we have a new batch to show you from Threshold, Catwoman, Vibe, Demon Hunters, and Animal Man.
Another offering from DC’s New 52 (though its getting quite old); this time its Vibe. You know, Vibe, from the old Justice League Detroit comic, or from the currently running Justice League of America comic. Yeah, I don’t know why they brought him back either. It was probably to appease the great power that is Major Spoiler’s very own Matthew Peterson, seeing as how he and Geoff Johns are the only people with fond memories of him. Does Vibe hold up on his own? Find out after the jump!
The new Justice League of America débuts with a whoppingly ridiculous 54 covers, with Geoff Johns on script and David Finch handling art. Will Justice League of America #1 have you declaring “America, F yeah!” or just mumbling “America… ehh… whatever…”? Stoke your patriotic pride as Major Spoilers reviews Justice League of America #1 (this reviewer got the Indiana cover).
A few days after the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (S.P.A.C.E.), Michael S. Bracco (BIRTH, NOVO) and H.C. Noel (MR. SCOOTLES) are both still reeling from the creator-friendly show.
Bracco, who received a finalist award for his graphic novel BIRTH, had this to say about his 2nd time at the show, “SPACE is a great show to do.Â I love the vibe of the show, the true sense of a comic community and being among collegues of such a high caliber.”Â A handful of select creators managed to qualify as a finalist for the S.P.A.C.E. prize (which honors the best of small press and indie comics) and that fact wasn’t left unknown by the BIRTH writer/artist, “Getting the nomination was very validating.Â [Creating] comics can often feel like an unforgiving road and it’s nice to have someone like Bob Corby out there to help us feel validated after a lot of what can feel like unrewarding work!”.
