Never Mind The Bollocks – An Etymology Of A Swear Word

Time to put the spoiler hat on for anyone who hasn't read the final issue of Brightest Day. And who hasn't been spoiled reading Comics Alliance, Newsarama and the like. And so who hasn't realised that the final few pages see the return of yet another Vertigo character to the DC Universe that bore them, […]

Peter Milligan Confirms John Constantine Returning To DC Universe

Okay, this is where it pretty much gets official. At the Hellblazer 25th Anniversary panel last night at the London Sci-Fi Festival, questions were asked about Bleeding Cool's coverage of John Constantine's impending return to the DC Universe line of titles. Current Hellblazer writer Peter Milligan, and DCU contributor, confirmed that, yes, John Constantine is […]

Wednesday Trending Topics: And Just Who The Hell Is That?

It's been a pretty interesting Comic Day, with Fear Itself, Nonplayer, and of course the secret of Brightest Day generating some serious discussion.  Meanwhile, the tv/film side of the page reveals more question marks for The Wolverine. I'm ready to crack open my Atlas Era Strange Tales Vol 4 Masterwork, but before I get to […]

Wednesday Comics Review: Brightest Day 23 and Green Wake 1

Vertigo is probably my favourite comic book publisher, in that I buy more of a percentage of their published titles than any other. But here I find myself reviewing two comics that seem steeped in Vertigo, yet not published by them. And yes, talking about Brightest Day #23 in this way I'm going to have […]

Tuesday Trending Topics: Big Fat Spoiler Tag

It's going to be a hard day to avoid spoilers, I think, on one book in particular. Retailers (and of course, BC readers) were buzzing about this like crazy yesterday.  But it's another good week in comics, there's Nonplayer, Fear Itself, Brightest Day, and a bunch more.  And I see Rich has some great reviews […]

Big Brightest Day Spoilers You Will Kill Yourself Over If You Read

I warned you. After all, DC are not like Marvel. They don't like to spoil their big comics news stories in the local rags a few days previously, they like you to get a big surprise by picking up the comic, on the stands and then flicking to the last page. That's tradition. So it […]

Mike Grell Confirmed On DC Retroactive At Wondercon

Peter S. Svensson writes for Bleeding Cool. DC Editor Ben Abernathy confirmed Mike Grell's participation in the DC Retroactive event at the DC Icons Panel at Wondercon 2011 as part of his elaboration on the event previously announced by Dan Didio. Abernathy explained that the intent was to do something more light-hearted to contrast this […]

Wednesday Comics Review: Brightest Day #19 and Iron Man #500.1

I do hope it's Swamp Thing. Yes, I know, I have a lot of love for the Vertigo version and would have welcomed the China Mieville version, complete with machine guns, but there's something hat seems to radical for DC to have the saviour of the universe revealed to be a vegetable with delusions of […]

Mini-Glitch: Brightest Day Hardcover For Half Off

Looks like Amazon may have over ordered a few of these for Christmas and are now punting them out. The first Brightest Day hardcover, published in December collecting the first eight issues, pushed out the door at well below the $30 cover price – below what most comic shops can buy them for, come to […]

Will Firestorm Ongoing Be Announced At New York Comic Con?

The Firestorm fansite FirestormFan posted a rumour from comics fan Brandon Leonard reporting that at Toronto Fan Expo, a writer said that he'd turned down a Firestorm ongoing series, but that another writer had accepted the gig. The website had redacted the name of the declining writer to protect him. This is certainly how such […]

A Comic Show by Aaron and Mike – Hating On The Number Haterz

Aaron and Mike from A Comic Shop in Florida talk about tomorrow's comics. See, they already get their comics on a Tuesday. Soon every comic shop will do the same. This week they address the Daredevil changes and take down the number haterz, spread the love for Atomic Robo and looks to Green Arrow meeting […]

DC Comics Makes First Six Brightest Day Issues Returnable

There has been a bit of fuss regarding the solicitations for DC's new series Brightest Day. While the creative team is solid, no one is exactly sure what it's all about. And without that knowledge, how can a comic retailer order in confidence? DC have tried to solve that by making issues 0, 1, 2, […]
