While Rebirth seems to be a hit with fans and retailers, DC can’t just sit around heaving a sigh of relief. So in December they’re rolling out Justive League vs Suicide Squad, an event/crossover/battle royale starring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Amanda Waller, Harley Quinn, Deadshot and so on. Joshua Williamson is writing this tale. The […]
The fast developing deal for AT&T to buy Time Warner is about to be announced, according to the Wall Street Journal. It’s the largest media deal since Comcast purchased Universal in 2011 and represents another key moment in an era of vast media conglomeration.
