[private]It was so hard not to make a Super 8 reference somewhere in the title to this post.
At any rate, DC offices have been closed this holiday week, but that hasn’t stopped their bloggers from posting previews of the upcoming covers for their many New 52 titles coming out in April. These #8 covers not only look great, many of them give us a hint of things to come (and a sign as to what series are still around). Check them out below.

[private]Alan Moore may not be santa, though the beard does allow for a striking resemblance, but this year he practically plays it for all his fans. Just in time for the beloved gift exchanging holiday, with the help of Gosh Comics in London, Alan and Kevin O’neill have provided us with the cover for next years League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century 2009! According to the guys at Gosh, Alan’s script is all done and Kevin has 63 of the total 72 pages already penciled up. We still have to wait until June of next year for the final chapter of More >
[private]Let’s face it, right now your X-box Avatar is about as cool as Rick Jones in the early days (just waiting to accidentally stumble into a gamma radiation test site and still never get super powers). But Marvel and Microsoft are out to fix that, with a strong dose of avatar super serum. If you want your X-box live representation to be powerfully radiated or the spirit of avenger’s patriotism, you need to make your way to the Xbox Marketplace now and add some of the cool new gear Marvel is offering to your current lame avatar.

During his time in comics he created several comic icons, such as the Newsboy Legion, Manhunter, and the Fly. Along with another comic legend, Jack Kirby, Joe pioneered the field of Romance and Horror comic books. Joe was also the first man to hire Stan Lee in the comic book field. However, Simon’s greatest legacy will be that of his creation, Captain America. Simon created Captain More >
[private]Some of you may have heard about Alec Baldwin recently getting into a bit of drama relating to American Airlines. For those of you who didn’t, the basic jist is that the famous actor got booted off his flight for refusing to turn off his phone. Apparently Alec was deep into a game of Words With Friends and couldn’t be bothered. The airline personnel weren’t happy, he got kicked off the flight, tweeting ensued, and suddenly this drama became headline entertainment news. Things then got exacerbated last night by Baldwin going on Saturday Night Live and mocking the incident as he More >
