Brian Michael Bendis's List Of All The People He Says Can Beat Batman

Now that the second-longest continuous writer at Marvel Comics, Brian Michael Bendis, has signed an exclusive deal with DC Comics, everything he ever said anywhere on the internet about DC Comics is up for discussion. Including this great post on his Tumblr from earlier in the year, when asked about the comparative fighting abilities of Batman […]

New Booster Gold And Captain Atom Comics For DC?

Two new books I hear coming down the line, open for pitches and proposals at DC Comics, Booster Gold and Captain Atom. Booster Gold was given much importance during Convergence, travelling from domain to domain, with a version of himself transformed into the Waverider character from the Armageddon 2001 series from decades ago. An earlier version of […]

What Were They Thinking? – Doctor Spectro

You would think the hardest thing to do in comics is to come up with a cool new hero. Wrong! Its far harder to come up with a compelling villain. You want someone who the reader loves to see being evil. Someone on par with your hero yet not too powerful to actually kill him. […]


Rob Liefeld Leaves Grifter – Will January Bring The DC Fourth Wave?

I really rather enjoyed today's Grifter #12. But it is one of the lower selling DC New 52 books. Rob Liefeld tweeted; As much as I love doing a bunch of books at DC, I'll be saying goodbye to Grifter with the December issue, #16. Fun ride tho. He's staying on Deathstroke and Savage Hawkman… […]

DC Comics Cancels Captain Atom In September

It may be cancelled. But it is getting its zero issue. And no title could probably deserve it more. Captain Atom has dodged the executioner's axe before, when it sold less than Hawk & Dove, but it was still Rob Liefeld's title that was cancelled. But it is gettine one month more than Justice League […]

Sixteen Thoughts About Sixteen DC Comics – Justice League, Batman Inc, Catwoman, Captain Atom, Wonder Woman, Red Hood And The Outlaws, Batman, Blue Beetle, Supergirl, Thunder Agents, Batman Odyssey, Blue Beetle, DC Universe Presents, Birds Of Prey, Green Lantern Corps And Legion Of Superheroes

This week, a number of the DC Universe books end with the maiming or killing or someone close to the main character – by one of the main characters. I won't tell you which, obviously. Why not collect them all? Captain Atom #4's artist, Freddie Williams excels this issue, his art style loosening up even […]

Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen DC Comics – Justice League, Batman, Red Hood And The Outlaws, DC Universe Presents, Catwoman, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, My Greatest Adventure, Green Lantern Corps, Birds Of Prey, Nightwing, Legion Of Super Heroes, Blue Beetle And Captain Atom

Fourteen comics, fourteen thoughts… Batman #3 from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo takes the idea of Batman and an urban legend and applies it to a figure, or figures in Gotham, that really have remained secret for a long time. All the way back to All Star Western. And they seem to insist on keeping […]

Steve Ditko's Birthday Original Art Gallery

It can be said without hesitation that the world of comics would be a very different place today without the contributions of Steve Ditko.  Born November 2, 1927, Ditko began working in comics in 1953 and went on to create or co-create characters such as Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Captain Atom, Hawk & Dove, The Creeper, […]

Wednesday Comics Review: Batman, Wonder Woman, Legion Of Superheroes, Supergirl, Nightwing, Birds Of Prey, Captain Atom, Catwoman, Green Lantern Corps, DC Universe Presents, Blue Beetle, Red Hood And The Outlaws

All Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics of London. Batman #1 by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo has possibly the worst cover of the line. Not that there's anything wrong per se but it misses a massive trick. The comic has a beautiful beginning aimed at long time and new reader alike, giving each a different […]
