Hal Jordan, or at least the strange version of him that exists in Frank Miller's Dark Knight Universe, gets the spotlight in Dark Knight Universe Presents: Green Lantern #1, a 12-page mini-comic that will be included with Dark Knight III: The Master Race Book 3. Miller is collaborating with Brian Azzarello on the writing, and with John Romita Jr. on art.

October traditionally marks the end of the summer con season, when retailers, creators and exhibitors return to their caves for hibernation, secure in the knowledge that they have done everything they can to promote their wares. But before we all get our rest, the fitful sleep before the rattling of chains in January that signals the first email about registering for San Diego, there's one last stop: New York Comic-Con, coming at you on October 8 through 11, complete with a very fun roster of variant covers!
In addition to getting Andy Kubert's art for Dark Knight III on the cover of the con program, DC is marking the occasion by offering up six exclusive variants that you can grab at the Javits Center next month. But if you're not going to be there, don't worry too much: You can check 'em out right here.
The Marvel Comics line is about mid-way through its giant line-wide crossover event Secret Wars, in which reality has been rewritten by god-emperor Doom, and the heroes have been re-imagined more than a dozen times over in different domains paying tribute to stories from throughout Marvel's publishing history.
One of those domains is a version of House of M, another reality-rewriting crossover event that cast the Marvel heroes in different roles, which ran ten years ago. House of M launched the current era of Marvel events, kicking off a steady steam of universe-shaking storylines that continues into Secret Wars. To mark the tenth anniversary of House of M, and ten years of event-driven storytelling, we're asking you to determine which of these events was the very best.
When the DC Universe came out of Convergence, one of the biggest changes came from Superman. Not only was the Man of Steel back in the t-shirt and jeans look that he was rocking back at the start of the New 52, but his secret identity as Clark Kent had been exposed, leaving new writer Gene Luen Yang and returning artist John Romita Jr. to explain just how that went down.
It's a big change in the status quo, so to find out more, ComicsAlliance spoke to Yang about taking on the world's first superhero, collaborating with one of his favorite artists, and changing the dynamics between Clark, Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane.
Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Cyborg has slowly moved up the ranks in the DC Universe, growing from Teen Titan into a fully-fledged member of the Justice League. To mark the launch of his new solo series from David F. Walker, Ivan Reis, Joe Prado and Adriano Lucas, we've collected some of the best Cyborg art ever.
This week's rumors that Selma director Ava DuVernay had signed on to direct a Black Panther movie were a bit premature (though talks apparently continue), but the excitement that surrounded the news confirmed one thing: People really want to see Wakandan King T'Challa on the big screen, and they want to see him done right.
Here's some of the best art featuring T'Challa from the past five decades, from Kirby, Denys Cowan and John Buscema, to Francesco Francavilla, Olivier Coipel, and the best fan art around.
Back in February, digital book subscription service Scribd made the rather surprising announcement that it would start offering comics from publishers including Marvel, Valiant, IDW, Boom and others in its $8.99 per month subscription, making it a sort of Netflix for comics (as well as books).
Now, Scribd is promoting the actual Netflix's new Daredevil series by recommending some of the comics on its service that can best introduce readers to the character. They've got some pretty good ones. Check out what Scribd is suggesting as a primer after the jump.
For day four, we look at the high-ranking uniforms of the Captains Marvel, with our pick of the best costume for each major character to bear the title --- four of them from Marvel and one from Fawcett (via DC). How does Carol Danvers' cosplay-favorite flight-suit stack up against the big red cheese's fancily embellished union suit?
I think we can all agree that if there's one problem with Superman, it's that he doesn't have enough powers. Now, at long last, this glaring oversight is about to be remedied.
In this week's Superman #38, Geoff Johns, John Romita Jr., Klaus Janson and Laura Martin are adding another weapon to the Man of Steel's arsenal for the never-ending battle against the forces of evil, and on top of that, a new costume to go along with it. As for just what that new power is, all we really have is a name provided by an infographic sent over by DC Comics: Super Flare. The good news is that art chosen for the infographic gives us a look at what this new power might involve, but the bad news is that the infographic is woefully incomplete.
Each week, ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims and Matt Wilson host the War Rocket Ajax podcast, their online audio venue for interviews with comics creators, reviews of the books of the week, and whatever else they want to talk about. ComicsAlliance is offering clips of the comics-specific segments of the show several days before the full podcast goes up at WarRocketAjax.com on Mondays.
This week, Chris and Matt talk at length about the five concurrent stories in Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke's Justice League #31, using Superman #32, by Johns and John Romita Jr., as a measuring stick for comparison. Once that examination is all over, they pivot to Michel Fiffe's Copra #15.
