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.

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.
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.

When the early Diamond info came out this month the Friday before the Top 300 charts were released (as they generally do every month), there was much consternation, as Marvel dominated both the top ten and also nearly doubled DC in market share. The instant conclusion that was jumped to in many quarters was that Marvel crushed DC in October. DC must have had a horrible month, right?
Eh, not so much.
Total sales for DC were actually up over September by more than 100K. Average sales per title were down slightly, just 0.5%. Average sales for Vertigo were down because last month was a Sandman month, but the median sales per title for Vertigo were up by about 2.5K, due to the Vertigo relaunch.
With the release of Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1 next week, Frank Miller is doing the rounds of promo, including interviews at Newsarama and Vulture.
