We like diversity here at ComicsAlliance. We've said it before, and we'll say it again. We're also big fans of superheroes, and that probably goes without saying.
We especially like diversity with our superheroes. Diversity broadens the genre's reach, encourages respect and understanding of people's differences, and gives minority audiences more chances to see themselves in fiction, and those are all great things. Because of this, we've come up with a new way to look at diversity in superhero comics - particularly team books. We call it the Harvey/Renee Index.
What's that, up ahead? Can you see it? Why, it looks like the end of DC Comics' Trinity War crossover! It's now in sight!
But before we look at the events of this penultimate chapter, let's cast a glance over our collective shoulder to see how we got here. First, the Justice League and the Justice League of America had a tense stand-off regarding international borders or somesuch, which ended with the Justice League's Superman accidentally killing the Justice League of America's Doctor Light, and then growing extremely ill.
The story so far? When the hero Shazam entered Khandaq in order to spread the ashes of his fallen enemy Black Adam in the sands of the villain's home country, the Justice League (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, those guys) sprang into action, hoping to avoid an international incident by kicking Shazam out of Khandaq. At the same time, the Justice League of America, a team of second-stringers assembled by the government agency specifically for the task of taking down the other Justice League, arrive with the same idea.
In the midst of all the arguing that ensues, Superman suddenly loses control and uses his heat-vision to kill Dr. Light, a member of the rival of America League. Superman surrenders himself and is imprisoned by Amanda Waller, leader of the ARGUS (Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate) and the of America squad, and all the Leaguers convene to try and figure out what exactly what happened between Superman's eyeballs and Dr. Light's face.
Earlier this month, DC Comics announced their upcoming Trinity War storyline. Written by Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire, the story will show the three Justice League teams facing off against each other, with Phantom Stranger, The Questio
Zatanna is getting a promotion. Last night on Twitter, Justice League writer Geoff Johns revealed that the DCU's foremost magician will be joining its flagship team, starting with July's Justice League #22. The issue will also feature the debut of a new look for Zatanna, which takes inspiration
The winning character from last week's episode of the SyFy reality series Face Off, a heat-powered man named The Infernal Core, shown above with his creator, makeup artist Anthony Kosar, will appear in one of the DC Comics hitting shelves today. It's just as DC co-publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee promised on the show. And the book isn't Earth 2 as I predicted. It'll be Justice League Dark #16,
As hopeful as Justice League fans are about the possibility of DC Comics' flagship heroes teaming up in a proper feature film come 2015, it seems those currently enjoying the magical and mystical corner of DC's New 52 in titles like Swamp Thing and Justice League Dark have just as much to be excited about in the not-too-distant future. Following some early rumo
Friday's Justice Leaguepanel at San Diego Comic-Con kicked off with moderator John Cunningham, who's DC's VP - Marketing, introducing panelists Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, Co-Publisher Jim Lee and writers and artists James Robinson, Nicola Scott, Tony Bedard, Francis Manapul, Brian Buccellato and editor Brian Cunningham.

The first major DC Comics panel of the Comic-Con weekend in San Diego, celebrating the publisher's Dark and Edge lines, kicked off early Thursday morning with moderator Bob Wayne (VP - Sales) and panelists Jeff Lemire, Jimmy Palmiotti, Rob Liefeld, Brent Anderson, Adam Glass, Joshua Hale Fialkov and Rachel Gluckstern.
