The new issue of Doomsday Clock by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, the unauthorised sequel to Watchmen and published by DC Comics, is showing the future of the DC Universe Earth and the superheroes who live on it, around the world. The Supermen Theory, currently causing global uproar, points out that 97% of the superheroes […]
Today's Superman/Woman Woman #20 puts Lois Lane in the hot seat for lasso-based interrogation. Which considering that Superman and Wonder Woman are a thing does strike one as a little conflict of interest… and he's not happy about it. That is a look of disdain folks… "Lasso method" we are calling it now… I'm not sure […]
UPDATE: @blogofoa It's ending with issue 6. — Cullen Bunn (@cullenbunn) September 14, 2015 Alex De Campi confirmed Sensation Comics was gone as well, as has Batman '66… The original article continues below…. DC Entertainment has told their media partner CBR that DC Comics are to cancel five series, a number of which were launched in […]
From today's Doomed #3 by Scott Lobdell, Javier Fernandez and Ulises Arreola. Is this Lichtenstein-bait? And an example of #DCWorldProblems? Coming out as gay is fine, but… …the whole ancient god possession is seriously the superpower that dare not speak its name. At least Don Blake had some control and Etrigan could only be released […]
By Randy Young and Chris Hunter Bleeding Cool welcomes the return of Talking Comics, from Excalibur Comics, Cards, and Games in Shreveport, Louisiana, to discuss this week's upcoming books, speculating about where they are headed, and discuss their favorite storylines. Hosts Randy Young and Chris Hunter say: Thank for pressing play! We're gearing up for […]
There are some odd disparities in the Superman comic books right now. In the the main Supertitles, Superman has had his secret identity revealed as Clark Kent. But not in Justice League. Not In Bizarro and not, it seems, in Doomed. Because while in the main titles we have seen Clark Kent's neigbourhood come out […]
Ken Lashley posted his process art for the Doomed #1 cover on his facebook page. He said he did it in one afternoon… on a Friday. It's interesting to see how he goes from just a loose pencil sketch right to inking in fine details.
On Wednesday, the launch of Plants Vs Zombies, Black Canary, Doomed, Harley Quinn & Power Girl, Dr Fate, Justice League Of America, Prez, Martian Manhunter, Robin Son Of Batman, TMNT Casey & April, Astronauts In Trouble, Empty Zone, Tales Of Honor: Bred To Kill, Runaways, Squadron Sinister, Thors, Princeless: Be Yourself, Fathom Blue, Fiction and […]
In the back of today's Convergence: Superman #2 is a preview to the new DC tile for June, Doomed, by Scott Lobdell and Javier Fernandez, the only brand new non-legacy lead character in the June mini-relaunch. However, in doing that, they also bring back a blast from the past, Alpha Centurion, introduced in the eighties […]
Tomorrow sees the second issues of the two parter Convergence event. And, as well as giving you an idea where the series will be going as world battles worlds (or, at least, is meant to) the books will also preview every book in June. Including Convergence: Superman #2, featuring a first look at Doomed, the […]
So I write this recently. About how there were four books from the June mini-relaunch that I was really excited about, but seemed not to be lighting the fanbase on fire. Prez, Doomed, Mystic U and Section 8. So, since I was watching the InStore Comic Convention Kickoff, and Dan DiDio was on the screen, […]
A bunch of comic fans were surveyed asking which of the DC books launching in June are they most looking forward to. Now bear in mind the publicity on these comics has been restricted to names, numbers, a few covers and whatever has sneaked out of the retailer roadshows. I understand that PR-based interviews arranged with a […]
Doomed is a new series by Scott Lobdell and Javier Rendandez for the DC June mini-relaunch. Note the title is in the Wicked, Frozen. Tangled mode… teenage Doomsday anyone? Upset that no one understands his desire to kill Superman? UPDATE: Artist Javier Fernandez has posted the cover and black-and-white to Doomed, saying To create a character […]
Another wonderful week of comics, so what have you been buying? Psychic occultist Cassandra Craft returned to the New 52 with a racebending change from white to black. As of five years later, in Justice League Dark: Futures End #1, she seems to be becoming DC's new Oracle as well… The superfuturistic Spider-Man in today's […]
Apparently never meant to be seen but just cooked up to stop the movie rights lapsing, the 1990s Fantastic Four was clearly made on a shoestring.
