Comics By Chance: Reviewing Cheap, Random Buys [August 2013]

comicsbychanceaugust

I think the intuition/thought process of buying cheap comics is interesting. There's a combination of randomness, curatorial sense and instinct at play. You end up with a group of comics that would ordinarily never be linked together, from different times, artists and publishers, but links and common themes are there and just need to be unearthed. You end up with a vantage point on the artform you would never get otherwise. No scholar would ever link these comics, but the link is there. This is how most readers, especially the uncounted legion of casual fans who aren't part of the Wednesday crowd, encounter comics.I picked up this particular group of comics at a sidewalk sale for a dollar each. They're exactly the type you'd find at a place that doesn't specialize in comics, in this case The Record Exchange. None are rare or valuable. None are celebrated classics of the form. They're probably comics you've seen a many times and thought nothing of, but each tells its own story.They are Green Lantern Corps #223 and #224, Super Soldier #1, The New Teen Titans #9, and Green Lantern1,000,000.

DC Entertainment’s Diane Nelson On Green Lantern, Wonder Woman And Vertigo Films: ‘Sandman Is Right On Top’

Untitled-2

Diane Nelson is rolling into San Diego's Comic-Con with some real momentum thanks to the enormous commercial success of Warner Bros. Pictures' Man of Steel film directed by Zack Snyder. By all accounts the hit film based on Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster's Superman character has galvanized the DC Entertainment division, which Nelson leads as President, and everybody wants to know what's next for the company. To that end, Nelson sat down with The Hollywood Reporter in an interview that focused mainly on DC's Hollywood prospects (no news on Man of Steel 2, although an announcement is rumored to come later this weekend in San Diego), with Nelson confirming her wish list of properties to make the jump to the big and small screens, addressing concerns about Wonder Woman and the future of Vertigo.
