The DC Super Hero Girls franchise, which appears to my pretty darned toyetic, is moving right along, with the first print graphic novel announced: DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: FINALS CRISIS. As previously announced, it will be written by Shea Fontana, with art by Yancey Labat, colors by Monica Kubina, and lettering by Janice Chiang. The book goes on sale on July 6th.

Well last night’s Batman v Superman trailer debut definitely perked things up for this film. After the underwhelming sepia-toned teaser from Monday this stoked the chatter to acceptable levels with variety of villains and a question of just how heroic all these heroes are going to be. And for the first time, the Big Three of DC in one film.

The best works of fiction usually have some basis in reality. Paul Dini is teaming up with Eduardo Risso to tell a Batman story inspired by a mugging in 1993.

A Batman v Superman teaser was released tonight and it really puts the “v” in BvS! The shot opens with Batman (Ben Affleck) hanging from chains. Superman (Henry Cavill) strides into the room and some guards to look Naziish bow before him! What! Is Superman a fascistic overlord after all? And then…he rips of Batman mask!

I don’t know what’s best about a trio of stories in Variety that goes behind the scenes at WB and its film struggles and TV triumphs: the fact that there’s enough Kremlinology material to last right through the holiday or the sweet ills by R. Kikuo Johnson that show an embattled Kevin Tsujihara teetering near the WB water tower and studio facade.

Frank Miller’s Twitter chat finished up a little bit ago and some how the tweets of the questions didn’t get linked to the answers…which gives the whole thing an even more surreal quality. Miller does give Brian Azzarello credit for the whole DKIII idea yet again, so this is obviously the line moving forward. The […]

DC has announced a “Tweet at Frank Miller” event for tomorrow, Friday November 20, from 10amPT/1pmET to 11amPT/2pmET. Using the hashtag #FrankMillerChat you can ask him about “the main story, the mini comics and probably the most often-asked question since the book’s announcement, “What’s up with that title?””

We’re not sure that is REALLY the most […]

Collect Them All! : DC Offers Neal Adams Variants for February 2016

Portrait of the artist as a younger man

Next February, DC Comics will be offering an “open to buy” series of variant covers drawn by Neal Adams! These covers don’t require any order minimums or ratios; retailers can order whatever amount they desire!
