Convergence Week 2: Azrael, Gen 13, Kingdom Come And More
Over the past couple of weeks, DC Comics' Convergence event has resulted in some of the most exciting and most bizarre announcements since the company threw out their previous shared universe canon in favor of the "New 52" reboot -- especially since the core idea of next April's big crossover is that they're bringing back a bunch of the versions of characters that they got rid of for a big battle against the new batch. Last week was particularly enticing for long-time fans, teasing us with Greg Rucka's return to writing Renee Montoya in The Question and Gail Simone going back to the fan-favorite pairing of Nightwing/Oracle.

And now, via an interview today with Comic Book Resources, DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras and Editorial Director Bobbie Chase have revealed that Robert Venditti, who was previously set t
So There’s An Attempted Gang-Rape In The First Issue of ‘Amethyst’
If you'd asked me two days ago if I was excited about Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld's return in the pages of Sword of Sorcery #0, the answer would've been a resounding yes. It seemed like a huge step in the right direction: A comic that dabbled in something outside the standard superhero genre, attempting to appeal to a wider audience of fantasy fans and women and girls with a cover that boasted
Writer Christy Marx On The Return Of ‘Amethyst’ [Interview]
Thanks to her work on TV shows like G.I. Joe and the creation of Jem and the Holograms, writer Christy Marx is already a ComicsAlliance favorite. This week, though, she's part of the team returning Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld to comics in the pages of Sword of Sorcery #0, and to say that we're looking forward to it is an understatement...
