Rob Liefeld is taking over the comics Grifter, Deathstroke and Savage Hawkman, in a bit of a mini-DC relaunch, plotting them all in conjunction as part of a new cosmic storyline, and drawing Deathstroke. He is joined on the Savage Hawkman by Joe Bennett drawing , co-scripting by Mark Poulton. And on Grifter, Scott Clark […]
Welcome to the second installment of Dealing Cool, our new regular feature which shares retailer perspectives from among the racks and at the register. Today, we're proud to present insight from Steve Anderson of Third Eye Comics. Enjoy! MY SHOP, DEFINED Set the stage for the Bleeding Cool viewer — what's the core […]
Siike Donnelly is reporting from Megacon for Bleeding Cool. Excitedly he gives us news of this year's Free Comic Book Day offering from DC Comics. We know it's by Geoff Johns, we know there's a Jim Lee four page foldout, but little else. Well, it appears that the free comic will focus on Pandora, the […]
They may not get a mention, but the comic store set of The Big Bang Theory is rather DC Relaunch full right now. Say, is this the only comic shop in America with all the issue one first prints – and seemingly no gouging price tags? 1
It's beyond conventional wisdom at this point that digital is in the midst of radically changing our industry, and there's no doubt in my mind that the business is going to look pretty different 12-18 months from now. And yet… it's becoming apparent that there are a bunch of side effects to this ongoing process […]
I have this comics history nerd theory/fantasy in my head about how the DC reboot titles are being chosen, and it goes something like this: someone put together a spreadsheet of DC-owned properties that has a column for decade/era of origin, a column for imprint or acquisition (which is something that DC has historically done […]
A big piece of news just dropped in this Hero Complex piece about the DC relaunch. We knew the New 52 would have some big numbers, but the question was just how big, with so many titles launching at once — and of course, subsequently the question will become how much of it can be sustained. […]
With DC Comics releasing their November solicitations, we can take a look at how the relaunch is handling the creative teams on tight deadlines and no allowance for late books. But no book seems to be suffering this attention more than Mister Terrific. All three issues are written by Eric Wallace with covers by JG […]
There weren't any QR codes for Hawk And Dove #1 by Sterling Gates and Rob Liefeld. So I have to magic these two pages up out of the ether instead…
Yes, you've already seen this pages coloured as part of the Justice League Preview. But now you get to see them in Scott Williams black and white, then processed what appears to be a fax machine. Do people still use faxes? Apparently so… So where have all these pages come from? Well, those DC house […]
Page 14 from Green Lantern #1 by Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke, in pencils and in inks. Like I said in the headline. Last one in an hour….
From Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang, two inked pages from Wonder Woman #1. The first I saw, coloured, at San Diego Comic Con, but it didn't seem to end up anywhere else, the other is new, I think. See you again in an hour.
From Grant Morrison and Rags Morales, here's two unseen pages from Action Comics #1. I like this game.
Straight from the boards, comes this look at Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion's Batman #1. Are you noticing a theme about today's coverage? Where could this art all have come from?
From George Perez, two pages from the upcoming Superman #1.
At this rate we're going to have the entire issue in preview before it's published. Two new pages from Flash #1 by Francis Manapul.
Take a look at this beautiful splash page written by Geoff Johns, penciled by Ivan Reis, and inked by Joe Prado from their upcoming New-52 release Aquaman #1. Tell you what, I haven't been the biggest Aquaman fan in the world in the past and wasn't going to pick this up, but I think this […]
Toy News International has word from yesterday's DC Direct panel at San Diego Comic Con about figures based on Jim Lee designs for the upcoming new Justice League, giving us a nice look at how some of these costumes look when modeled in 3d. (group shot from jimlee00)
Despite a strong late surge from Marvel Next Big Thing news, DC dominated the day with the fallout from the DC New 52 panel, which had the kind of long line and packed room that usually only tv/film panels attain. There's been a lot of talk about whether comics would regain center stage at San […]
Fresh from today's panel: In case you weren't able to make the panel, be sure to check out some of the new artwork that was shown. Below, you'll see art from upcoming titles such as WONDER WOMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL, STORMWATCH, GREEN ARROW, CAPTAIN ATOM and LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES. And much more in this gallery:
