Thirteen Thoughts About Thirteen Comics – Buffy, East Of West, Killjoys, Peter Panzerfaust, Spawn, Demon Knights, Superior Spider-Man Team Up, Batgirl, Wolverine & The X-Men, World's Finest, Constantine, Fantastic Four And Justice League Of America
But wouldn't it have been better if it had tied in with Kirkman's Battle Pope? The final issue of Demon Knights shows us that, unlike Spider-Man, you don't always have to have witty reparte during fight scenes. Spider-Man throws Scarlet Spider through a window in Superior Spider-Man Team Up, proving what a villain he is[...]
Cammy's Favorite Covers – Batgirl To Godzilla
The cover as a whole definitely grabs your attention. Demon Knights #22 by Howard Porter Very colorful! I think that's the main reason this cover caught my eye, for it was an amalgamation of colors with a tinge of the psychedelic flavoring, and it never hurts having the jagged vines from the Evil Dead franchise make a[...]
DC Cancels Dial H And Demon Knights Too…
Sorry folks, Dial H and Demon Knights are joining Legion Of Superheroes in the cancellation collection in August… I've really enjoyed both series, through occasional downs but lots of ups Both were in my New 52 top ten, certainly. With the New 52 reducing in the last few months, and another three dropping, it looks as if[...]
Merlin And The Doctor (Demon Knights Spoilers)
Demon Knights #15 is Paul Cornell's last issue on the series And brings to an end all sorts of plots, character stories and themes With a big battle, it's rather lovely It also ties into the future that we've seen while reflecting the past. And then Merlin does something… rather familiar… The moment has been prepared for! Paul[...]
Swipe File: Asterix & Cleopatra & Demon Knights
On the left, a panel from Demon Knights, on the right, a scene from Asterix & Cleopatra In which there were many references to exactly how nice Cleopatra's nose was… In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works[...]
Is Paul Cornell Leaving Demon Knights Too?
There's been a rumour going round the British comics industry circles of late that Paul Cornell is leaving Demon Knights and setting up new projects at Marvel to replace it His Vertigo book, Saucer Country, would be unaffected. That is literally all I know, or have heard There's not an official word I can get, and[...]
Superboy #0 And Demon Knights #0 Retcon Their First Issues
And today we have it twice, with Demon Knights #0 and Superboy #0 Spoilers, obviously. Because there are things we knew That Superboy was a genetically engineered clone, who escaped from N.O.W.H.E.R.E when they tried to dispose of his body And Merlin bound Etrigan to Jason Blood when he was summoned unintentionally, part of Merlin's attempt[...]
Dan DiDio Parodies Panel Parity At Kapow
One of the odder moments at Kapow this weekend (and there were a number) was when Paul Cornell continued his commitment to panel gender parity (you can read about it here) and sat in the audience for the DC New 52 panel rather than sit on the all-male panel with Scott Snyder, Ian Churchill and[...]
Demon Knights #5 – A Dungeons And Dragons Game In Disguise?
Demon Knights is one of the ten or so New 52 comics that I eagerly read by choice every month But there's been something nagging at the back of my head, and this issue gave it an extra tug. Demon Knights is a Dungeons And Dragons game, given narrative form Writer Paul Cornell used to play[...]
Reach Of Daemonites In The DC New 52 Goes Further
We'd already seen mention of the Wildstorm alien race, the shape-shifting Daemonites, in the Wildstorm-originated books Stormwatch, Grifter and Voodoo. But this week's DC Comics All Access editorial page states that the Daemonite influence will also extend to Demon Knights, which makes some sense as it's the prototype in the past for Stormwatch in the present,[...]
Demon Knights #4
Rather than simply relying on sales figures, which never tell the full picture, we ask retailers what is, and what isn't, moving for them, and here's what they had to report this week, on some of December 14's new releases. This past week saw three of the lesser-hyped New 52 titles – Demon Knights, Grifter, and[...]
Sixteen Thoughts About Sixteen DC Comics – The Ray, Legion Lost, Suicide Squad, Grifter, Batgirl, Mister Terrific, Batman And Robin, Frankenstein, The Shade, Deathstroke, My Greatest Adventure, Resurrection Man, Green Lantern, Demon Knights, Batgirl and Batwoman
Volume three of that out today as well. Demon Knights is also one of my favourite New 52 books, and this issue defines their quest in a fashion that both reminds you of classic lore… But also Monty Python It jumps from tone to tone, from raucous and comic, to ethereal and symbolic, to bloody and[...]
Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen DC Comics – Batwoman, Batman And Robin, Batgirl, Huntress, Penguin, Legion Lost, Green Lantern, Demon Knights, Superboy, Suicide Squad, Resurrection Man, Mister Terrific, Grifter and Frankenstein
And MArcus To really does a good Gary Frank impression in places too. Just checking that Demon Knights #3 is still a T book Yup Well, this issue goes beyond Detective Comics #1 To the extent that other creators have been complaining that… that they aren't allowed to do this sort of thing Violence, sexual politics,[...]
Blowing Up The Baby In Demon Knights #1
I've mention the concluding page of Detective Comics and the opening sequence of Green Lantern Corps specifically, but one scene I haven't dwelt upon yet, is an early scene in Demon Knights #1. I mentioned it in the review, certainly, but it might be worth dwelling on and wondering what the relative lack of reaction[...]
Wednesday Comics Reviews: Batman and Robin, Batwoman, Deathstroke, Demon Knights, Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E., Green Lantern, Grifter, Legion Lost, Mister Terrific, Red Lanterns, Resurrection Man, Suicide Squad and Superboy
A great start to the week. Demon Knights #1 by Paul Cornell and Diogenes Neves – well that's a relief I gave Cornell's Stormwatch a rather negative review for not living up to the potential of the idea, which led to a slightly awkward pub scene later that night and me buying more alcohol than round[...]
Horsewoman – The New Oracle Of The New DCU?
It would be crass and simplistic to say that Horsewoman from Demon Knights #1 is a "replacement" for Oracle, who seems to be regaining the use of her legs in the new Batgirl #1. But this is Bleeding Cool and we do a roaring trade in crass and simplistic Two for a pound, no refunds. So if[...]
