Scott Lobdell mentioned that he was bringing his run on Red Hood: Outlaw to an end with #50 of the series, that this might be the end of the series and in doing so, would bring a sense of closure and symmetry to his long run on the Red Hood And The Outlaws characters that[...]

The 2010's statue is from Detective Comics #1000 which is a great suit but I wish they save that one for a 2020 statue and used the New 52 costume design Either way, it is a great statue that shows off the dark grey cowl and cape Any of these statues will be a great[...]

Doomsday Clock cover by Gary Frank and Brad Anderson
It seems cool, and I've been curious how DC and Geoff Johns plans to explain what's been going on in the background of Flashpoint, New 52, and Rebirth canonically. Plus, I've been hoping it might bring about the return of heroes they've not used in a bit like the Justice Society, Legion of Superheroes, and others. This[...]

DiDio: The Nu52 Sold "A Little Bit" Better Than DC Rebirth In Trade Paperback
But it seems that the make-up sex may not be quite as good as the break-up sex, according to DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio. In an interview with ICv2, DiFio talked about how sales of DC Rebirth trade paperbacks compare to the Nu52. "We were hoping the Rebirth trades would be a little more robust, but they are[...]
This was Geoff Johns' final writing credit on the New 52 Green Lantern title While, yes, Sinestro killing the Guardians and Hal Jordan killing Volthoom were both really cathartic moments, there is another moment I remember most: That moment has always stuck with me Here, we have two bitter enemies who have tried to kill one another[...]

Rebirth Recap: Aquaman
After Geoff Johns "made Aquaman cool" with his excellent run at the beginning of New 52, the book entered a steady plateau of quality It never got bad, but it never wowed in the same way that Geoff Johns' run on the series did. When Dan Abnett took on the book shortly before Rebirth, a writer[...]
The Marvel Monsoon Versus The DC Drought
However, like I said, I'm just not convinced that there is no profit to be made in these types of books. The way DC started off New 52 satisfied me in the amount of B-to-C list characters they had on the market That's why I loved it in the beginning Hawk and Dove were back, Hawkman[...]

The People's Mixed Reactions To DC 'Rebirth'
New readers aren't appearing and another relaunch isn't the solution. — Nash Across the 8th Dimension (@Nash076) January 23, 2016 It'd be hilarious to me if the DC relaunch is them just going "ALL THE COMICS NOW TAKE PLACE ON EARTH-23, OKAY?" and that's it. — Graeme (@graemem) January 22, 2016 I hear 616 is available now… New 52 was[...]
Is Roy From Titans Hunt… Not Roy? Mindless Speculation (But Possible SPOILERS)
Roy, known as Arsenal in the New 52, used to be known as another life. But what if they are going with something else here? The comic has characters remembering themselves from a past continuity which seemingly doesn't exist any more. Could Roy… be Wally West instead? The pre-52 version? Mindless speculation, nothing more… Comics courtesy of Orbital[...]

The New 52 And The Absence Of Joy
The DC Universe was where you were sure Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman would always be the surest in the room. The New 52 of today bears little resemblance to the DC Universe I knew and this makes me sad. As my colleague, Graig Kent, once pointed out, "There's the odd thing that's a really good read…[...]
