DC And Warner Bros. Launch Kid-Friendly Sites With Free ‘Scooby-Doo,’ ‘Looney Tunes’ and ‘Justice League’ Comics

Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade

Over the past few years, I've often wondered why comic book publishers weren't taking advantage of the opportunities that we've seen through the growth of webcomics, hooking new readers with free content and then using that to drive them towards the established market. Today, though, it looks like that's exactly what they're doing.

Along with its parent company, Warner Bros., DC Comics is part of a relaunch of three kid-friendly sites, LooneyTunes.com, ScoobyDoo.com and DCKids.com. In addition to videos and games, they're putting up free full-length stories for kids --- including great all ages comics like Eric Jones and Landry Walker's Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade, and the best Looney Tunes comic ever.

Ask Chris #241: The Suicide Squad, Then And Now

Ask Chris #241: The Suicide Squad, Then And Now

What made the Ostrander/Yale Suicide Squad work and others not? John Ostrander and Kim Yale, along with Luke McDonnell, Geof Isherwood, Karl Kesel and other artists. They were creators who were absolutely at the top of their game over the course of Squad's 66-issue run, and you can't really get away from the fact that when Ostrander came back for stuff like Raise the Flag and the Blackest Night one-shot, those books were immediately right back in step with some of the best stories of the run. They were, hands down, one of the best creative teams in the history of superhero comics.

But at the same time, I don't think that's the whole story. When you get right down to it, Suicide Squad wasn't just a product of its time, it was the kind of comic that could only really happen in 1987.

Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer: A Hero Can Be Anyone

The latest trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight will remind you of what the Caped Crusader meant to inspire in us all.

Warner Bros. Interactive has launched its 'Be the Batman' trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight. This video features a simple, but awesome premise. It starts off by showing a few people in some dangerous situations. A man walking through an alley gets cornered by a group of would-be muggers. A heavily injured basketball player grimaces while being bandaged. Hooligans terrorize an old man in a subway car while multiple onlookers try to ignore the injustice in front of them. The last scary situation features firefighters struggling to contain an explosive inferno while a woman is trapped by a second story window, surrounded by flames...

Mezco Pits Batman Against the Mutant Leader for SDCC Exclusive

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

Didn't get your hands on one of Mezco's One:12 Collective Dark Knight Returns Batman figures the first time around? Do you really love that moment from the book where Batman takes on the Mutant Leader in the mud pit and loses horribly? Good, because Mezco's upcoming summer convention exclusive is a pretty bogue box set commemorating the fracas.

Mezco kicked off its One:12 Collective series this year with a standard Dark Knight Returns Batman, available in a variety of outfits from the seminal comic series. All of them quickly sold out. At Toy Fair, the company teased the Mutant Leader as one of its next figures (as well as a sick Judge Dredd we're eagerly awaiting) in the One:12 Collective, but were vague about its potential release date. Now we know why.

‘DC You’ Claims Diverse Stories, Offers Generic Cool-Dad Language

dcyou-feat

Yesterday, DC Comics announced a new marketing initiative that it has titled "DCYou," aimed at celebrating "Fan-Favorite Characters, Top-Notch Talent, Diverse Stories and DC Fans," according to the press release.

This being DC, there are some notable missteps in this initial launch that don't bode well for the campaign as a whole. The biggest problem seems to be a corporate appropriation of messages that the publisher thinks readers want to hear, which lack something when run through the filter of corporate language. The hope is that this signals good intentions, but recent creator numbers at DC don't back that up.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For May 20, 2015

BestComics_0520

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.
