Midnighter Just Had A One Night Stand With Warren Ellis

In today's Convergence: Nightwing/Oracle #2, the backup preview features Midnighter, by Steve Orlando and ACO. And we open with the young, naked Midnighter in bed, grabbing his Batman underoos, amidst a pile of condoms. Is this the first condom appearance in DC's standard superhero comic line? It's been a while since that issue of Static that caused […]

Is This The End For Stormwatch? (UPDATE)

It was meant to be the flagstone for the New 52, the comic in which Pandora's identity would be revealed and with Demon Knights as its past, made up of Justice League and Authority members, the lynchpin around which much would revolve. It has been the book that transformed Wildstorm, could it do the same […]

DC Asks Retailers To Hold Stormwatch, Phantom Stranger And Catwoman This Week

Bleeding Cool understands that comic retailers have been asked to hold any copies of Stormwatch #24, Phantom Stranger #12 and Catwoman #23 Second Print (the one debuting Joker's Daughter) from going on sale this week.

Wait… Didn't We Just Get A New Lobo Origin?

Over on Twitter, Rob Liefeld is pointing out that in Stormwatch #20 we got a new Lobo origin from the venerable Jim Starlin and artist Yvel Guichet. Lots of Q's about Lobo. Starlin did most recent. Here's 1st page of his Lobo origin in Stormwatch 20 — robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) August 24, 2013   So […]

Sometimes You Gotta Say WTF (Certified) – Friday Trending Topics

There's an old Neil Gaiman Sandman quote which goes something like, "You cannot seek Destruction and remain unscathed".  There's an equally wise and on-point Risky Business quote in which Tom Cruise is advised, "Every now and then, say 'what the fuck'. WTF gives you freedom. Freedom brings opportunity. Opportunity makes your future." Somewhere in the middle […]

Red Lanterns #10 – The Return Of One Punch!

In the Giffen/DeMatteis Justice League, there is one scene that will stand throughout comics history. The time when Batman took down Guy Gardner Green Lantern with one punch. Indeed "one punch" has become a mantra for some. Today, in Red Lanterns #10, we get a return to that with Batman stand-in Midnighter. And a certain […]

Review Sunday – Stormwatch #9

Eliot Cole reads Stormwatch  #9 by Peter Milligan and Miguel Sepulveda for Bleeding Cool; This issue of Stormwatch contains a lot of elements of what has made the current series really rather excellent, but seems to be missing it's heart. I'm not entirely sure what it is, but it could be the lack of introspection […]

Did Stormwatch #5 Give Us A Glimpse Of The Justice Society?

We've mentioned before how Stormwatch is meant to be one of the key books of the New DC 52 continuity. It's the book where Pandora's identity and importance will be revealed, and it looks key to many other stories too. From just one panel in Stormwatch #5. We know that Stormwatch is the future of […]

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 […]

Speculator Corner: Bottoming Out On The DCU New 52

When DC took the reins of the top slot on the sales charts for the first time in years due to the launch of the New 52, they also took over the back issue market, with sellouts across the board causing a massive rise in prices across the line. How are those prices holding up […]

Thirteen Thoughts About Thirteen DC New 52 #3 Comics – Action Comics, Animal Man, Stormwatch, Detective Comics, Green Arrow, OMAC, Men Of War, Batwing, Red Lanterns, Hawk And Dove, Static Shock, Swamp Thing and Justice League International

Detective Comics #3. Shock values aside, one of the biggest surprises for me has been Tony Daniel on Detective Comics. I've usually found his work in the past to be mediocre at best, both writing and art. Both have stepped up considerably for this comic and that hasn't changed for issue 3, especially the writing, […]

The Changing Martian Manhunter Of Stormwatch #1 (UPDATE)

Last month, Bleeding Cool ran a Swipe File, looking at the similarities between the Martian Manhunter creature of Stormwatch #1 and the Syfy movie Mongolian Death Worm. It looks like DC Comics may have taken it to heart. Because here is the page, as seen in the second print of Stormwatch #1, out yesterday. I […]

Swipe File: Syfy Vs Stormwatch #1

On the left, the cover to the DVD of the Syfy movie, Mongolian Death Worm, which is about as good as it sounds. And the big splashy page from Stormwatch #1 drawn by Miguel Sepulveda. In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree . They may be […]
