Usually when I say someone retiring is the end of an era, I mean that the way that person did business is gone. In this case I really do mean it is the end of the era of New York publishing in general, and New York comics publishing in specifics.
This week DC has been revealing new looks for its core characters, including some startling fashion changes. The new looks have been revealed in various places We’ve cobbled it all up for you below but here’s the shorter version:
Today is my first day as an Editor at DC Comics. I’m very happy and excited and looking forward to hearing what you guys think of my books. — Andy Khouri (@andykhouri) March 2, 2015 It’s official.

As this morning’s DC news broke, people started….tweeting. They couldn’t help it.
It’s the new 49—or the end of the New 52. DC has just unrolled their June line-up, a slate of 24 new titles, along with 25 returning ones, which, they promise, will show the new face of comics. This summer, DC Entertainment launches a bold new direction for the DC Universe (DCU) that is even […]
And the final week of Convergence mini-series has been announced, with characters from the ancient Pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths world, with a little oddball stuff like the Crime Syndicate. Announcements were made at EW and Newsarama. The previous weeks of COnvergence—the two issue moving fill-in event that will help ease DC’s staff into their new […]
The combination fan wish fulfillment and classic writer comeback that is Convergence—DC’s two month fill in event slated for next March and April while the company moves—have been announced, via The Nerdist and IGN. Once again it’s old home week with Marv Wolfman writing the Teen titans, Len Wein writing Swamp Thing, and artists including Tim Truman back at DC for one last go round.
This was originally going to be an event that featured a lot of younger creators, and there is one—EGOs artist Gus Storms is drawing the Legion.
There are now a ton of job listings up at the WB job board for DC’s new West Coast set-up. Among them publicity and strategy and planning and print and even editorial. We looked at this a few weeks ago, and now even more content and managing jobs are posted, including a Director, Business Strategy and Planning to […]
Via Hitfix and Blastr 10 more of the Convergence 2-issue mini series have been released. Once again it’s an all-star panel of writers and artists many not seen at DC in forever—Larry Hama! Louise Simonson!—, and some old characters like purple suit Catwoman, plus-size Amanda Waller, peekaboo panties Supergirl and the old Superboy. As you may recall, 40 of […]
Acknowledging that moving cross country and restaffing an editorial department might be distracting for its staff, DC officially announced it’s two month fill-in event today, CONVERGENCE. The event will replace the New 52 line-up for two months, April and May of 2015, with a framing 9-issue mini-series, starting with a zero issue, and spinning into 40 two part mini series. Promo art by Carlos Paguayan and Jose Marzan Jr.
The event has been rumored for quite a while, and I’m told it was hatched back in the spring as a way to ease the transition as DC personnel make the move from NYC to Burbank in April 2015. The event was originally run by Tom DeFalco but he moved on and was replaced by ex-Marvel/Teshkeel editor Marie Javins, who worked closely with Dan Didio on the event.
The event was announced this morning in USA Today. The whole event is being overseen by TV’s Jeff King, (White Collar, Continuum, Stargate SG-1) with Carlo Pagulayan and Stephen Segovia on art on the framing mini, and Dan Jurgens and Scott Lobdell helping oversee things. The 40 two-issues minis will feature a wide variety of writers and artists.
