Jaime Reyes And Ted Kord Return In ‘Blue Beetle: Rebirth’ #1 [Preview]

Blue Beetle #1, DC Comics

I think it's safe to say that Jaime Reyes had a pretty rough go of it in the New 52. Despite being in one of the launch titles of the new universe, Blue Beetle never seemed to click with readers or the viewers that knew him from Batman: The Brave and the Bold. That said, his predecessor, Ted Kord, might have had an even worse time in the previous universe, being unceremoniously shot in the head to kick off the events of Infinite Crisis.

Now, though, both characters are getting another chance. In September, the all-new Blue Beetle: Rebirth #1 hits shelves from Keith Giffen and Scott Kolins, with Jaime and Ted teaming up as the two-man team of mentor and hero that readers got a glimpse of in the DC Rebirth special. Check out a preview!

DC Comics hosted a special livestream event at WonderCon in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon to unveil the creative teams behind its DC Rebirth event, which relaunches the entire DC Universe line with new issue #1s and multiple double-shipping titles. The relaunch will set the future course of DC Comics at a time when fans are wondering whether the company will embrace a new and diversifying audience or double down on serving a shrinking core audience.

The event was introduced by DC All Access host Tiffany Smith, with DC co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio and chief creative officer and Rebirth chief architect Geoff Johns introducing and interviewing the creative teams as they joined them on stage at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week): Adrian Alphona, Jason Masters and Scott Kolins

Batwing 27

The comic book, animation, illustration, pinup, mashup, fan art and design communities are generating amazing artwork of myriad styles and tastes, all of which ends up on the Internet and filtered into ComicsAlliance’s Best Art Ever (This Week). These images convey senses of mood and character — not to mention artistic skill — but comic books are specifically a medium of sequential narratives, and great sequential art has to be both beautiful (totally subjective!) and clear in its storytelling (not so subjective!). The words and the pictures need to work together to tell the story and create whatever tone, emotion and indeed world the story requires. The contributions of every person on a creative team, from the writer to the artist(s) to the letterers, are necessary to achieving a great page of sequential storytelling.

It is the special nature of comic books that we’re celebrating in this recurring feature: Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week).

It’s Batman Vs. Gotham’s Police In Scott Kolins’ ‘Legends Of The Dark Knight’ Tale [Preview]

LOTDK top

Scott Kolins has been illustrating tales of DC Comics' iconic characters for more than 20 years. Perhaps best known for his collaboration with writers Geoff Johns and Bryan Augustyn on The Flash, the artist has worked on Wonder Woman, Superman/Batman, The Legion Of Superheroes and Young Justice for DC, among others. In recent years Kolins has tried his hand at writing and illustrating stories, most notably the Solomon Grundy seven issue miniseries in 2009, spinning out of the publisher's Blackest Night event. Now Kolins is taking on writing and art duties once again in this week's Legends Of The Dark Knight Chapter 70, the latest story in the digital first series of out-of-continuity tales focusing largely on Batman's early years.

In the first issue of this this four part story, titled "Hell's Bells," Batman and the Gotham City Police Department converge on the same suspect, but a trigger happy member of the force sets his sights on Batman instead. DC Comics has provided ComicsAlliance with a four page preview of the story, which you can check out below.
