The Walmart Report: DC is Back, After 3 Months Away

DC's departure from Diamond was the first big change that has come about, as other changes, such as the upcoming departure of many of DC's editorial staff, have grabbed a lot of attention.  One change that didn't get quite as much attention was the change over of going from the DC Giant Line to DC […]

It's Official – Superman Is Living His Very Best Life (Spoilers)

DC Introduces A World Of Evil Super-Pets For Death Metal in November

DC Introduces A World Of Evil Super-Pets For Death Metal in November

DC Comics cares a lot about the Super-Pets, so much so they will go to court against Netflix to defend them. But this November, as The Batman Who Laughs Batmanhattan The Darkest Knight is creating his own New 52 full of darkest versions of reality. Definitely not a commentary on Dan DiDio, right?

Death Metal #3 Confirms Jarro as DC Comics Most Powerful Superhero

Death Metal #3 Confirms Jarro as DC Comics' Most Powerful Superhero

Death Metal has excelled as being a kind of anti-Event. Sometimes publishers will run a comedy/parody tie-in book alongside an event, rarely will they make the parody book the actual event.

Justice League #49 Review: Wants To Say Something Important

Since the shenanigans last issue, the Justice League is running a planet full of people that hate each other.

Death Metal and Young Justice Throw Exposition At The Many Crises

Of late you haven't been able to move without DC comics characters realising that Crises have happened within their continuity, resetting their lives, rewriting them, deleting them and even restoring them.
