DC Comics Use Wizard Staff To Launch Quarterly Magazine, Direct Currents

14191468_10153987804566359_800096005_oFor the launch of DC Rebirth, DC Comics put out a special DC Previews magazine, created by DC staffers who used to work on Wizard Magazine. And now it seems they will be doing the same again and again, every quarter.

It was written by Pat Mccallum, Mike Cotton and Brian Cunningham, all ex-Wizard writers now working at DC Comics in one capacity or other, edited by ex-Wizard editor Andy Serwin to edit it with  original Wizard designer Steve Blackwell to put it all together. And a final page in homage to twisted Toyfare Theatre.

Well, announced at the Baltimore Diamond Retailer Summit, is the news that DC Comics will be creating a quarterly magazine sent to comic book shops previewing upcoming comics, and sitting alongside Marvel's Previews and Image Plus.

No Price Guide though.

Thanks to retailer Dennis Barger, who snapped the shot for Bleeding Cool.
