[private]As we reported here earlier today, DC has recently announced the cancellation of 6 of their new 52 titles in April. Well, to keep that beautiful number the DC Universe seems to love so much, they’ve just announced 6 new series to replace the canceled titles in May onward. The titles will be:
Batman Incorporated by Grant Morrison and Chris Burnham, picking up right where the Batman Inc: Leviathan special left off, with Talia Al-Ghul presenting herself as the lead villainess.
Justice Society by James Robinson, yet again, and Nicola Scott. This time, the golden age DC characters are living back on Earth-2

[private]Earlier today DC officially announced its first wave of cancellations from last Septembers big relaunch of 52 new titles. These titles getting the can are 6 of DC’s lowest selling or under performing titles from the relaunch as we enter 2012. Each of these series will still get 8 issues, which isn’t all that bad for new series, but a little unimpressive after the many advantages these on-goings all had in sales and advertising. Of course, when you see the list below, you might not be surprised that many of these titles are going to the way side. DC assures More >
[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]With all of the constant artist changes DC comics is currently making to meet deadlines, it’s understandable if you’re a little confused about what went on between solicitation and published product. However, it’s a whole other thing when DC can’t seem to get it right. If you check out their website solicitations right now, they have countless contradictions and mistakes, such as the following for Action Comics #4:
Written by GRANT MORRISON; Backup story written by SHOLLY FISCH; Art by RAGS MORALES, RICK BRYANT and SEAN PARSONS; Backup story art by BRAD WALKER; Cover by RAGS MORALES; Variant cover by MIKE More >
[private]Apparently DC really likes its 4 times a month shipping schedule, because this week they are holding back! If you are a fan of DC’s DCnU/New52 then this is not your week for comics. It would seem DC decided to skip out on the 5th Wednesday of November by releasing just a few peripheral DCU titles, some reprints, and vertigo bits with absolutely nothing of their brand new New 52 to be seen. Of the new releases DC is offering this week (not including reprints or repackaging of older titles) there is only the meager collection listed below: BATMAN ODYSSEY More >
[private] This week we have the final set of New 52 reviews, showcasing DC’s 52 brand new #1 comics with a minimalist examination in 140 characters or less. This week’s twitter style reviews cover the comics released on September 28th!
I, Vampire had a scattered story & could use a much better letterer…but I truly adored the story & will continue with it #new52
I am all for ethnic diversity in comics, but it feels like every new character @dccomics is adding has to be a minority. Absurd #new52 BS.
While Perez is a great artist, he doesn’t seem to have Superman’s voice More >
[private] Another week of DC’s New 52 and another week of reviews in 140 characters or less. We continue this weeks twitter style analysis of the 52 new #1 titles from DC by focusing on the issues released on September 21st.
Legion of Superheroes was great, picking up right where #15 left off last month. Might be hard on new readers though. #new52
Batman #1 was a perfect Batman story, which honestly surprised me. I had no hopes but it had everything you want in a Batman comic! #new52
I honestly hadn’t been loving Batman lately, but the #new52 is doing a brilliant More >
[private] Switching over to the tweets of our senior staff writer and DC guru, Mathias, let’s continue with another week of DC’s New 52 #1s reviewed in 140 characters or less! This week the reviews are for DC (and one Marvel) titles released September 14th
Green lantern #1 stands out so far as the best of the #new52 partly because of good story, partly because it feels unchanged & familiar.
Red Lanterns had awesome Benes artwork, as expected, and the story reminded me a lil of Spectre. Overall, not bad & has potential. #new52
Okay, the #SpiderIsland Avengers one-shot was hilarious and well More >
[private]It’s been just over a week since DC has really begun releasing its New 52 comics. So as promised, lets look at some of the SG2M tweet reviews of DC’s first week:
SpeakGeekyToMeSpeak Geeky To Me Swamp thing wasn’t bad. It wasn’t something I found too extraordinarily amazing myself. Looks like it could still entice vertigo fans #new52 SpeakGeekyToMeSpeak Geeky To Me Justice League International wasn’t bad. Wasn’t very spectacular though either. Jurgens is still Jurgens & the book needs more drama. #new52 SpeakGeekyToMeSpeak Geeky To Me WOW! Now Batwing, the title I expected nothing from, blew me away! Winick is still great. The arts beautiful, More >

DigiStalgia in Xros Wars – For anyone holding any loving memories of the long running Digimon series, it’s probably good news to hear what Monthly Newtype of Japan had to say.
