Between having his secret identity revealed, becoming a world-traveling super-spy, getting his secret identity back, and then spending some time partnering up with a villain who claimed to be better than Batman, Dick Grayson has has a busy couple of years. Now it's finally time for him to find some comfort and head back to familiar territory --- namely Blüdhaven, the city across the river from Gotham that was his home in the '90s.
But in Tim Seeley and Marcus To's Nightwing #10, Dick's being introduced to a whole new 'Haven. To find out more, ComicsAlliance spoke to them about why they wanted to get him back to his classic stomping grounds, what it was like to rebuild Blüdhaven from the ground up, and the shocking return of Orca the Whale Woman. Yes, really.
Suicide Squad as a franchise is known for shocking deaths when readers least expect it; it was a fundamental part of the original John Ostrander, Kim Yale & Luke McDonnell run.
Regular deaths keep the readers on their toes, and drive home the core concept of the franchise --- but this week's Suicide Squad #2, by Rob Williams, Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Alex Sinclair, took a shocking turn when it killed off one of the most iconic members of the team, and brought back an unexpected villain.
I've mentioned this before, but one of the really nice things about being super into Batman is that if you want a statue of that dude in your house, you have plenty of options. You want comics Batman? There's an entire line literally divided up by artist so that you can pick your favorite. Movie Batman? TV Batman? Take your pick, there's a dozen of 'em. Heck, if you want an up-sized, un-articulated version of the Super Powers action figure from the early '80s, they have that, and it is available now. But just in case there weren't enough already, Kotobukiya has a new one coming.
DC Comics only published two comics on August 31, 2011; Flashpoint #5 and Justice League #1, and in doing so it relaunched its entire universe under the brand of The New 52.
Intended to be a jumping on point for new readers, decades of continuity was abandoned in an attempt to make the line more accessible, and while the initiative is often remembered for its failures, some of the best DC Comics were published in the five years of The New 52 era.
It was announced this week that The CW was growing its ever-expanding line of superhero content with a new animated show set to debut on CW Seed, starring DC Comics superhero The Ray. The show is being touted as featuring the first gay lead superhero on television, but who is The Ray? We've put together a Crash Course to get to know him better.
As far as Suicide Squad is concerned, DC's big Rebirth event couldn't have happened at a better time. Right as there's a big budget Hollywood movie out featuring Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, and Harley Quinn, the entire universe is giving readers the chance to hop back in on the ground floor with a brand new Suicide Squad #1 from Jim Lee, Jason Fabok and Rob Williams.
Jim Lee is a businessman, a superstar artist, the talent behind the best-selling single issue of all time, the figurehead of the indie revolution, and the co-publisher of the oldest established comics company.
Lee went from struggling artist to industry-topping fan-favorite, he co-founded Image Comics, and he helmed many of Marvel and DC's highest-profile projects. His hyper-detailed, fine-line technique has inspired legions of imitators, and influenced generations of creators, making him one of comics' best-known and most recognizable creators. And today is his birthday.
We've already rounded up the best events for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and we've highlighted some of the best exclusive art prints to pick up, but there's so much more at SDCC. As the biggest convention of the year, it's a great way to interact with creators and this year's event has an amazing line-up of spotlight panels on some of the best writers and artists in the business.
DC’s mature readers imprint Vertigo has had a rough few years; where once it was the benchmark of challenging and thought-provoking creator-owned comics, many of its classic titles have wrapped up their runs, and Vertigo has struggled to find new epics to replace them.
In what DC describes as an effort to "set the business up for future success," the publisher has announced a restructuring of the imprint that includes the elimination of its executive editor role. Unfortunately that means letting go of veteran editor Shelly Bond, who has been with Vertigo since almost the very beginning.
A line-wide relaunch provides a great opportunity for a publisher to take a look at the visuals of their books, specifically costumes and decide what needs tweaking, changing and updating. We’ve already seen new looks for Batman, Deathstroke and Birds of Prey but today artist Tom Derenick posted on his Facebook page a detailed design sheet for the new look Superman post-Rebirth and in true ComicsAlliance tradition, we’re going to pick apart and analyze it see what works and what doesn’t.
