As DC Rebirth continues, more mysteries about its hidden history are being answered, and one of the biggest is that of Deathstroke's relationship to the former Teen Titans. This May, Deathstroke, Titans, and Teen Titans will crossover for a four-part event titled "The Lazarus Contract," as Slade Wilson targets the returned Wally West as part of an effort to resurrect his son Grant, aka the original Ravager.
This month in DC's March solicitations, there are a few big shake-ups in the two Titans books as each team gets a new member that fans have been waiting to see for a long time. There are also some interesting developments with Wonder Woman's villains, and possible answers to the mystery of the two Supermen coming our way next year.
Benjamin Percy's new Teen Titans book launched as part of DC Rebirth has had a bit of tumultuous time after losing its ongoing penciller Jonboy Meyers after the first issue. However, the title is on track and DC has provided us with a first look at the second and third issues featuring art by Diogenes Neves and new ongoing artist Khoi Pham, as Damian attempts to lead the team against the forces of his grandfather and The League of Assassins.
Marvel's mega-event Civil War II is still ongoing and heroes are still fighting heroes, but if you're hoping for a respite after the final issue we've got some bad news for you. Civil War II is set to be followed up by the line-wide "Divided We Stand" banner, which will see the Marvel Universe more fractured than ever, and to really drive the point home, Marvel has announced a line of Divided We Stand variant covers and unveiled the first seven featuring art by Butch Guice, Pasqual Ferry and more.
It's been a while since we've talked about Ninjak --- unquestionably the single greatest character in the entire Valiant roster, which you can tell because he's basically Batman plus Snake Eyes and his name is Ninjak --- but if you haven't been keeping up, Colin King has been having a pretty rough go of it. Not only has he been dealing with the kind of standard hassles that you get when you're MI-6's go-to ninja, but in his last adventure, he had to journey through the supernatural dimension called Deadside, with the kind of horrifying consequences that you'd expect from that sort of adventure.
Now, though, when Ninjak #14 hits shelves next week, it's time for Ninjak to head back to the literal castle he calls home for some rest, relaxation, and an explosion that blows up his house on page four. It's the start of the next arc, "The Siege of King's Castle," and you can check out a preview below!
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.
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.
Today at the C2E2 expo in Chicago, Marvel elaborated on a number of major announcements they've been teasing of late. Perhaps the biggest news is the introduction of a new ongoing Hawkeye series by part of the acclaimed Immortal Iron Fist team of Matt Fraction and David Aja; meanwhile, Khoi Pham will be replacing Ryan Stegman on Scarlet Spider, with Stegman moving to help Jonathan Hickman wrap up his Fantastic Four run...
In honor of May's The Avengers film, Marvel Comics is peppering the month of April with some fun variant covers depicting Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the styles of some of history's greatest artists like Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Monet and Pollock, just because...
"Chaos War" has had me both excited and worried since it was first announced. On the one hand it's another story in Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente's saga of Hercules and Amadeus Cho. On the other hand, it's a crossover mini-event, complete with the massive cast and numerous tie-ins that involves...
