Aftershock Announces New January Books ‘Blood Blister’ and ‘Animosity: The Rise’ [NYCC 2016]


Both books that Aftershock Comics announced at New York Comic Con this past weekend are essentially horror, but coming at the concept from two very different directions. Blood Blister looks too be a pretty intense examination of moral corruption through a body horror lens, and Animosity: The Rise offers insight into what happened all over the world as the animals rose up in the Animosity ongoing.

Marguerite Bennett And Steve Epting Relaunch ‘Batwoman’ In 2017 [NYCC 2016]


Batwoman's returning to her own solo ongoing in 2017, written by Marguerite Bennett with art by Steve Epting.

This is about as exciting a creative team as Batwoman could possibly have. Bennett already writes an alternate version of Kate Kane in DC Comics Bombshells, and in that and her other books like Insexts and Angela: Queen of Hell, she has not only proven herself to be one of the most talented young writers on the rise, she's also shown a particular interest in portraying the lives of queer women, all of which makes her the ideal choice for Batwoman.

DC Reveals Art And New Details For ‘Kamandi Challenge’ Tribute To Kirby [NYCC 2016]

Kamandi art by Bruce Timm

A while back DC announced plans to revive Jack Kirby's Kamandi: The Last Boy On Earth in January in a form that, to say the least, is a little unique. It's called The Kamandi Challenge, and the idea --- loosely inspired by 1985's DC Challenge and its game of storytelling hot potato --- is that the twelve-issue series will feature a new creative team, randomly paired together from a list of twelve writers and twelve artists for each issue, each picking up the story where the previous team leaves off.

It's an interesting way to mark the 100th anniversary of Kirby's birth in 2017. In advance of New York Comic-Con, DC has revealed a first look at some of the artwork from the series, plus new details of how the creative teams will approach the story.

Monstrous Bodies and Forbidden Desires in ‘Insexts’ Vol. 1 [Review]


Insexts is a comic book about monsters. Written by Marguerite Bennett and drawn by Ariela Kristantina, with colors by Bryan Valenza and Jessica Kaoline, it’s a Victorian horror tale with all the classic trappings, but it also incorporates a massive, writhing dose of body horror. It’s also queer and profoundly feminist.

In short, Insexts is doing things with horror the likes of which have never been seen in comics, or perhaps any other medium.

Vixen Joins The DC Bombshells As A Jazz Singer [SDCC 2016]


DC superhero Vixen has been receviving a long overdue push in the last couple of years, led by CW Seed's animated Vixen series, a guest appearance on Arrow, and an upcoming role for a version of the character in Legends of Tomorrow. Yet for all her TV appearances, DC's best known black female hero hasn't had the same sort of support in comics. That may finally change with the news that Vixen will feature in the next arc of the digital first series DC Comics Bombshells.

Bat-Missiles and More in ‘DC Comics Bombshells’ Chapter 50 [Preview]

If you haven't been reading Bombshells --- which is a shame ---you need to know that it's about an alternate version of the DC Universe in which superhero women are the biggest heroes of World War II. It's by writer Marguerite Bennett and a number of great artists, with Chapter 50 drawn by Mirka Andolfo.

Lost in Transition: ‘DC Comics Bombshells,’ And Why the Second World War Is ‘Like This Now’


“It’s like this now.”

Those four words are about as DC a phrase as one gets in comics, more than any quote from any comic, because they summarize DC’s approach to all of its worlds and all of its continuities: we want it to be like this, so It’s like this now.

It’s why there’s been anywhere from two to five reboots of the universe during the time I’ve been reading comics. It’s why there’s a multiverse, and why any attempt to bury the multiverse never lasts. And that multiverse is how we’ve wound up with Bombshells, the digital-first series based off a collection of statues issued by DC Direct, written by Marguerite Bennett and illustrated by a team that includes Marguerite Sauvage, Wendy Broome, Laura Braga, Stephen Mooney, Ming Doyle, Ant Lucia, and Bilquis Evely.

In September, Josie, Valerie and Melody will return to their own series for the first time since 1994 with an all-new Josie and the Pussycats #1, written by Marguerite Bennett and Cameron DeOrdio, with art by Audrey Mok and variant covers by Veronica Fish and Francesco Francavilla.
