You saw all our live tweets announcing amazing creative teams, incredible new titles, and generally building up the hype of DC’s Universe Rebirth, but now you can watch the entire panel (potentially again) by clicking the video steam below!
There’s certainly a ton of great news to take in after watching that hour and a half of hype. But I’m sure you’re all still left with many questions. Check back Monday for our full write up, with plenty of cover images and opinions, and chime in with your thoughts on DC’s new plans for 2016 and onward!
DC Entertainment is coming to WonderCon this year in a big way, as this is right before the comic publisher rolls forward with their new relaunch of #1 comics they’re titling DC: REBIRTH! Knowing this, it’s obvious to understand why the publisher, whose offices are right in WonderCon’s backyard, is bringing a full crew of creators, exclusives, and news via some big panels! One of the panels is even so big it starts before the convention opens on Saturday and will be streamed live for anyone to watch around the world! But just who are the creators coming to WonderCon More >
On Saturday July 11th, at San Diego Comic Con’s Warner Bros Presentation panel in Hall H of the massive San Diego Convention Center, fans got an unexpected surprise. Following the presentation for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the cast of DC and Warner Bros. Suicide Squad movie made their way on stage to unbelievable applause. Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, and director David Ayer were a few of those present to show off the new tag line to the film, “Justice Has a Bad Side”. For those familiar with the old Suicide Squad comics, the concept More >
Yesterday night was the DC Retailer Roadshow in Burbank, CA, the future home of DC Comics starting this May. The event is a semi-regular gathering of comic Retailers with the head of Sales, Publishing, and a few other admin/creative types from DC Comics to discuss upcoming events, sales tactics, incentives, and generally share ideas with one another. Great things like the popular Harley Quinn on-going that is currently being published by DC have spun out of these meetings, as well as some great and extraordinarily rare exclusive variant covers offered only to participants. Notable hosts on hand this time were More >
It’s just one month until Geoff Johns final issue of Superman, as the creator once more readies to walk away from the near omnipotent Kryptonian he’s written so well. This time, however, he leaves us with a few parting words right after the penultimate issue that has left Superman with a new power! Read his thoughts below and see if you can catch some of the more interesting tidbits hidden throughout:
Superman #38 came out yesterday and JR and I wanted to say thank you, because the issue sold out!
I have to admit, it’s a little bittersweet, because not only is More >
Based on several Batman storylines of the New 52 era of comics, the Batman Vs Robin animated film from DC and Warner Bros Animation looks to play perfectly as a sequel to the Son of Batman direct-to-video animated film. Batman Vs Robin is to adapt the Court of Owls and Night of Owls storylines from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run on Batman that started in 2011. However, it also looks to include aspects of the opening Batman and Robin storyline of the New 52 by Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason, which focused on Damian defying his father and going More >
The comic industry has long had an interesting relationship with drugs. Particularly marijuana, a smokable substance now legal in parts of the United States. To those in some of the inner circles of the comic community, it is not surprising to know many members in the industry partake in marijuana through various methods. However, it is often spoken of in public. Yet many of the underground comics of the 70’s blatantly featured characters imbibing and enjoying the once (and still, in some states and countries) illicit substance. Now we might have a surprisingly blatant use in a very mainstream comic More >
Another night, another leaked DC television series. Tonight we get one from NBC, the upcoming Constantine TV series set for actual release on October 24th. Once again, I hope this leak leads to the network premiering it online to detour pirating, but I suppose piracy is cool right now based on recent television and film trends. So once more I’m going to try and give a few spoiler avoiding thoughts on what I’ve seen, in hopes of enticing you all to give this show a shot later this year when it premieres.
This round of Constantine is much closer to the More >
The pilot episode of The Flash has leaked online, well before its intended release date of October 7th this year. Because of this, well I’m not the type to jump on a full review over such, I’d like to point out some of the hopeful bits that might entice you a bit towards checking out this new series when it premieres on CW this Fall. And if CW is smart, they’ll put the full pilot on their website in advance of the show, to prevent promotion of pirating. Of course that’s just my thought on the matter, but here are a More >
It has been over 10 years since I was last excited about a live action DC Move/TV series. That would be Smallville, a show that looked to have much promise. But somewhere back in the 90’s, all those Batman films followed by shows like Smallville, Birds of Prey, etc slowly wore me down. This was particularly depressing as a DC fanboy, as I watched Marvel recently do one brilliant comic book movie after another. Where did DC go wrong? Perhaps it was just Warner Bros and the CW. But with Arrow becoming a rather popular series, announcements from last year More >
