A very enormous Superman movie opened recently, and the Man of Steel's publisher DC Comics is availing itself of the occasion to launch some new projects designed not just to entertain its existing readership but to welcome Man of Steel viewers intrigued by what they’ve seen on screen. We already discussed the first issue of Superman Unchained, the new series by DC superstars Scott Snyder and Jim Lee, and this week saw the debut of Batman/Superman, billed as the story of the first meeting of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. The book is written by recent DC recruit Greg Pak, a ComicsAlliance favorite for his work on Marvel books like Planet Hulk and Hercules, and artist Jae Lee, the former Dark Tower illustrator and popular cover artist who raised his game immensely with the visually stunning contributions to the controversial Before Watchmen project.
As was the case with Superman Unchained, the pairing of Lee and Pak has drawn some lapsed DC readers back to see what’s become of the World's Finest since their New 52 makeovers. It is mainly from the perspective of that New 52 n00b that we contemplated this auspicious new issue and noted the following Very Important Things.
Of all the all the superhero comics restaffed and relaunched as part of the Marvel NOW initiative, I think Captain America is the one that most lives up to the bold promise of an all-new, all-different direction. Written by Rick Remender and illustrated by John Romita, Jr., Klaus Janson and Dean
Last week, DC announced that they were reviving the World's Finest Team withBatman/Superman, a new ongoing series launching in June with the creative team of Greg Pak and Jae Lee.

Not that you've got to pick favorites, but if ever you were irked by DC granting top billing to the Man of Steel on the 2003-2011 Superman/Batman team-up series, you'll be pleased to learn that Greg Pak (The Incredible Hercules) and Jae Lee (The Dark Tower) are teaming for a brand new book dubbed Batman/Superman, this June. Unlike the previous adventure book, this new series will focus on the first meeting of DC's
A number of press outlets have been invited to visit the DC Entertainment offices in New York and Los Angeles to inspect material pertaining to Before Watchmen, DC Comics' controversial expansion of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' hugely popular an

Just a few days after we learned that Dynamite Entertainment had done the impossible and secured the rights to reprint Howard Chaykin's legendary The Shadow: Blood and Judgement in a new graphic novel edition, the publisher dropped another pulp bomb on us Monday morning: Garth Ennis will write an all-new The Shadow series for Dynamite. Debuting in April, the book will be drawn by Aaron Campbell (Dynamite's The Complete Dracula, Green Hornet: Year One) and feature cover art
When fans first caught wind of Wolverine's trip to the netherworld and subsequent body-snatching during C2E2, one of my first reactions was, "How will readers be able to instantly identify the 'Foe-verine' walking around in the real-deal's skin?" Marvel's answered that question today with a first look at two interior pages from September's "Wolverine" #1 relaunch by Jason Aaron and Renato Guedes (with covers by Jae Lee, Steve McNiven, Paul Smith and Marko Djurdjevic).
Here's Marvel's official synopsis for the story, which seems to feature a creepy pupil-less Wolverb
If you're like me --a huge fan of Stephen King's magnum opus The Dark Tower, but not a very big fan of comic adaptations unless the original author is writing the script-- you might have approached Marvel's Dark Tower series with some trepidation when it appeared earlier this year. If, like me, you ultimately decided to give the series a shot, I'd be willing to be that you, too, found it to be an outs
