In very exciting news, one-time Beat Contributor Bryan Edward Hill is leading the charge on the newest title in Warren Ellis‘ WildStorm imprint: Michael Cray. Hill, whose commentary on diversity with this very site have been some of my favorite pieces of comics-related writing over the past few years, comes to the project after working […]
I don’t think there’s any comic I’m more excited about this year than the next collaboration between Tom King and Mitch Gerads. The Sheriff of Babylon was utterly beautiful and harrowing, and their recent team-up of Batman and Swamp Thing was the stuff of truly great Batman tales. And now they’re working on Mister Miracle, […]
The Earth One line has proven to be a pretty big hit in the bookstore market, with a number of their titles having cracked the NY Times Bestseller List, and acting as an entry point for new readers to some extent.

Last week saw the end of one the first longer-lasting Rebirth creative teams, as Greg Rucka, Liam Sharp and Bilquis Evely bid adieu to Wonder Woman. And now with issue #26 (on sale July 12th), steps in Shea Fontana, creator of DC Super Hero Girls, and artist Mirka Andolfo, to steer the ship through its […]
