“There is nothing wrong with typical Stan Lee hyperbole“. That was the line I’ll remember most from Executive Editor Tom Brevoort as far as today’s press conference goes. Why? Because today they officially announced and detailed the upcoming Marvel mega event, Secret Wars. In a press conference that took place at New York City’s infamous Midtown Comics, Brevoort and Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso attempted to break the internet with plans for the upcoming event and the future of the Marvel Universe. Immediately afterwards I spoke to several other journalists, retailers, and fans. Immediately after the video below, showing the entirety More >
Last week’s Batman #28 finally introduced *CENSORED* back into DC’s New 52 universe, and the appearance was long over due. After years of fans clamoring for the former *CENSORED* to return, Dan Didio, Scott Snyder, and Dustin Nguyen have answered the cries and given us just what we want. The only problem? We have to wait until April’s Batman Eternal #1 to see her again, as this last issue of Batman was just a short break in the Batman Year Zero storyline. But while we’re waiting for more *CENSORED*, let’s take a look at the one page we’ve got.

Yesterday DC announced that their previously solicited “villains issues” with 3D covers for Villains Month, this years annual September gimmick, will now all be allocated to retailers. DC will now additionally be shipping standard 2D issues, at a cover price of $2.99 instead of the $3.99 price tag accompanying the 3D covers, to replace the number of 3D covers they were unable to fill from retailer initial orders.
DC notified retailers of this yesterday via email through Diamond Comic Retailers. Some of you readers may know that I myself manage a comic shop, and I can tell you I received no More >

No, Scott Snyder is not writing Batman into a Nine Inch Nails album or a book by Jeff Long or Robert Reid. However, what he is doing is trumping Frank Miller by going back and telling the story of Batman’s first year as a caped crusader…the year before Year One. Batman: Year One was one of Frank Miller’s most famous Batman tales, a post-Crisis on Infinite Earth‘s origin for Batman that ran from issues #404-407 of the main Batman title back in 1987. It was the story of Bruce Wayne’s first year of Batman and has been the basis for Christopher More >
In Seattle Washington today, at DC’s panel for Emerald City Comic Con, fans were finally given new news about the mysterious lady who first appeared in Flashpoint #5 and then subtly cameo’d in every #1 issue of DC’s New 52 titles. Yes, Pandora will be coming back to the DC universe, according to panelists, and she’s not alone. We first got Pandora’s name and a little bit more info about her in the New 52 Free Comic Book Day comic last year, where she appeared alongside the Question and the Phantom Stranger. This ‘Trinity of Sin’ was cursed by some More >
We’ve already learned that June will feature a new wave of #1 titles into DC’s New 52, with the first of which announced being Larfreeze, an on-going based around the popular Orange Lantern of Green Lantern fame.

This will be the second volume of the Superman/Batman series, and the first of which to take place in the New 52. Volume 1 of Superman/Batman premiered in August 2003 as a new form of the classic series, World’s Finest, teaming up the caped crusader More >
It was announced a short while ago that Geoff Johns would be leaving Green Lantern, a title he’s written for almost 10 years, after the completion of his current ‘Wrath of the First Lantern’ storyline, which starts in Green Lantern #17. With the first issue of this story in stores today, DC has officially announced the new creative team set to replace Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke on Green Lantern, as well as the new creative teams for all of the Green Lantern titles. Yes, you read that right, the Green Lantern books are getting a complete shake up as More >
April’s solicits for DC aren’t out just yet, but we already have news about some of the big creative team change ups. It was announced a while back that Scott Snyder would be stepping away from Swamp Thing to focus on the many other titles he was currently working on, and issue #18 would be his final issue. Meanwhile, Scott Lobdell is stepping down from Red Hood & The Outlaws, also claiming a rather swamping schedule, except without the Thing that follows up that swamp. Coincidentally, both men have taken up writing Superman, with Lobdell on Superman proper, while Snyder prepares More >
Early Monday morning a keen eye’d and mathematically witted DC comic fan posted a comment on DC Publisher Dan Didio’s Facebook wall. It was the type of comment most fans probably wouldn’t have expected Didio to respond to, as it almost seemed to contradict his beloved New 52. The comment, as shown below, brought forward the point that when you combine the original 881 issues of Detective Comics, prior to the renumber of the title in the New 52, along with March’s 18th newly numbered issue from the March DC solicits, the series would hit issue #900 in April of More >
