Axel Alonso On DC Comics 3D Cover Solicitations For September

SupermanFuturesEnd_400x629You know that bit on The Daily Show where John Stewart shows something that Sean Hannity just said, and contrasts it with something Sean Hannity said in a different context a few months ago, for shits and giggles.

Well, Bleeding Cool sometimes does that as well.

From CBR's Axel-In-Charge interview column with Marvel EIC, published today,

This week, DC Comics released partial solicitations for September 2014, with no creative teams, as of yet, listed. It certainly sparked discussion online — what was your reaction when you saw that?

Alonso: I think it's dangerous to tell retailers and fans, "Hey, check out this cool lenticular cover! Who's writing and drawing it, you ask? Nevermind, check out this cool lenticular cover!" If I were the writer or artist of that issue, I'd wonder why my involvement is being concealed.

Do we not remember…


Later renamed Hunger #1. Or how about…

c1Or anyone remember…


Okay, all right, it's not like its 41 issues. But hey, you might not know the writer or artist but at least you know what the comic might be about! This month's CLASSIFIED listings for 33 Marvel books without covers is a new record of pain…

As for the mysterious 100th Anniversary? I get the word from one of the creators that they don't know what it's the 100th Anniversary of… start of the First World War? The birth of Siegel and Shuster? Not even they know…
