Wonder Woman: Earth One!

Absolute Matrix Helix! Absolute Vertigo!

Elseworlds!

Batman cosplaying as Superman!  (Is that a SPOILER?)

Plus lots of the DC You titles! Will they sell well in trade? Or will they die in the cradle, and never mentioned again?
(Also, DC, what’s with the “volume one” numbering on your ongoing New 52 titles, like Superman, Volume 1? Batgirl, Volume 1?  How can Superman Adventures Volume 2 contain issues #30-39?)

But WAIT! There’s a super-secret (see what I did?) DC licensed title coming from Scholastic!

Summary: “Evil is a sickness—and now there is a cure.”
In the future, humanity has discovered the root of all evil: a virus that modifies the neural pathways for empathy. Those infected with the malnoro virus have been forcibly imprisoned in the Quarantine Zone (whether they choose to do good or evil). Meanwhile, the rest of the cured world is sterile and crime-free, but permeated by an oppressive, paranoid fear of new outbreaks of the malnoro virus.
Written by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling novelist Daniel H. Wilson, QUARANTINE ZONE is an action/sci-fi original graphic novel that raises hard questions about free will and the nature of good and evil. If we could “cure” ourselves of the capability to do evil—should we? And could a person truly be good without the choice to do evil?

Caitlin started writing novels at age 13. Her first was a Star Wars tie-in. Fortunately, she branched out from there and after a few years trying to be a screenwriter, a comic book writer and the author of copious amounts of fanfiction, she tried to write a novel again. Her epic dark fantasy (thankfully) never saw the light of day but while she was struggling with elves and sorcerers she got the idea of writing a story about a werewolf who fought crime. Two years and many, many drafts later, she pitched Night Life to a bevy of agents and one of them, Rachel Vater, sold the series to St. Martin’s. Caitlin collects comic books, print books, vintage clothes, and bad habits. She loves tea, loud music, the color black (especially mixed with the color pink) and ghost stories. She can drive a stick shift, play the violin and knows more English curses than American ones. Caitlin lives in Olympia, WA with two pushy cats.

Fox was an attorney who began his prolific and innovative second career as a writer in the late 1930s on Batman and went on to create such Golden Age classics as the original Flash, Hawkman, Starman, Doctor Fate, and the Justice Society of America. His influence extended throughout the 1950s and 1960s when, until his retirement from DC Comics in 1968, he created and/or wrote such memorable features as the Justice League of America, Adam Strange, the Atom, Hawkman, and, of course, Batman, all under the auspices of legendary comics editor Julius Schwartz. Until his death in 1986, Gardner Fox continued writing comics and novels. He published over 100 books in numerous genres, some under the pseudonyms of Jefferson Cooper and Bart Sommers, as well as many fantasy novels under his own name.

Summary: This new hardcover omnibus collection spotlights the origins of the Justice League of America.

Born in 1914 in Cleveland, OH, Jerome Siegel was, as a teenager, a fan of the emerging literary genre that came to be known as science fiction. Together with schoolmate Joe Shuster, Siegel published several science fiction fan magazines, and in 1933 they came up with their own science fiction hero—Superman. Siegel scripted and Shuster drew several weeks’ worth of newspaper strips featuring their new creation, but garnered no interest from publishers or newspaper syndicates. It wasn’t until the two established themselves as reliable adventure-strip creators at DC Comics that the editors at DC offered to take a chance on the Superman material—provided it was re-pasted into comic book format for DC’s new magazine, Action Comics.
Siegel wrote the Adventures of Superman (as well as other DC heroes, most notably the Spectre, his co-creation with Bernard Baily) through 1948 and then again from 1959-1966, in the interim scripting several newspaper strips including Funnyman and Ken Winston. Jerry Siegel died in January, 1996.

One of the most prolific and influential writers in modern comics, Marv Wolfman began his career as an artist. Realizing that his talents lay more in writing the stories than in drawing them, Wolfman soon became known for his carefully crafted, character-driven tales. In a career that has spanned nearly 30 years, Wolfman has helped shape the heroic careers of DC Comics’ Green Lantern, Blackhawk and the original Teen Titans, as well as Marvel Comics’ Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and Nova. In addition to co-creating The New Teen Titans and the universe-shattering Crisis on Infinite Earths with George Pérez, Wolfman was instrumental in the revamp of Superman after Crisis, the development of The New Teen Titans spinoff series Vigilante, Deathstroke The Terminator and Team Titans, and created such characters as Blade for Marvel, along with Night Force and the retooled Dial “H” For Hero for DC. In addition to his numerous comic book credits, Wolfman has also written several novels and worked in series television and animation, including the Superman cartoon of the late 1980s and currently the hit Teen Titans show on Cartoon Network. His novelization of Crisis on Infinite Earths was published in the spring of 2005 by iBooks.

Besides being the most important Batman writer of the 1970s, O’Neil served as an editor at both Marvel and DC. After a long tenure as Group Editor of the Batman line of titles, he retired to write full-time.

In the years since his entry into the indie film community, Kevin Smith has seen it all—from the surprise critical and commercial success he received for his debut film Clerks to the disappointing critical and commercial drubbing he took on his second outing, Mallrats. He caught a break on his third film, the critically hailed Chasing Amy, and managed not to get killed by the religious zealots over his fourth film, the comedic meditation Dogma. Thus not deterred, Smith advanced and has written and directed Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Zach and Miri Make A Porno.
He’s written comic books featuring not only his own characters (Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob), but other characters as well—the award-winning Daredevil at Marvel Comics, and the award-winning Green Arrow and Batman at DC Comics.

Summary: The original Green Arrow, Oliver Queen, reemerges after years of being assumed dead. But many people, including Black Canary, his ex-lover, Arsenal, his ex-partner, Connor Hawke, his son and temporary successor and Batman, the Dark Knight Detective, want to know how Green Arrow survived the airplane explosion and where he has been. Using strong characterization and engaging dialogue, comics and screenplay writer and movie director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Batman: Cacophony) successfully resurrects one of the world’s classic heroes.

Summary: This new deluxe edition graphic novel pairs KILL YOUR BOYFRIEND and the critically acclaimed miniseries VINAMARAMA #1-3 for a double dose of Grant Morrison’s signature irreverence and bold narrative detours!
Originally published in 1995, KILL YOUR BOYFRIEND is an over-the-top black comedy of rebellion and teen romance topped with a heady mix of random violence and dark humor. A British schoolgirl yearning for excitement joins up with an angry rebel boy intent on tearing down middle-class England. Through their violent, anti-authority joyride – filled with sex, drugs, and anarchy – Morrison offers a scathing, often-hilarious take on the British suburban landscape, where edgy behavior provides an escape from sanity.
In the complete miniseries VINAMARAMA #1-3, Ali and his witty, vivacious arranged bride, Sofia, are forced to delay their new life together in order to stop a stream of ancient Indian demons who have crawled from the bowels of Earth to use Britain as a battleground.

Summary: Collecting the first 12 issues of the series about the ultimate embedded war journalist trapped in a most unlikely war zone: the streets of New York City.
In the near future, America’s worst nightmare comes true. With military adventurism overseas bogging down the Army and National Guard, the U.S. Government mistakenly neglects the very real threat of anti-establishment militias scattered across the 50 states. Like a sleeping giant, Middle America rises up and violently pushes its way to the shining seas, coming to a standstill at the line in the sand—Manhattan, or, as the world now knows it, the DMZ.
Matty Roth, a naïve young man and aspiring photojournalist, lands a dream gig following a veteran war journalist into the heart of the DMZ. Things soon go terribly wrong, and Matty finds himself lost and alone in a world he’s only seen on television. There, he is faced with a choice: try to find a way off the island, or make his career with an assignment most journalists would kill for. But can he survive in a war zone long enough to report the truth?

Could this be the end of Yorick’s tenure as last living male? And then, as the Last Man on Earth and his companions continue to head west, the story takes a detour into the psychological.

Contributor Bio:
Edmond Hamilton came to comics from science fiction pulp magazines, for which he was the creator of grand space operas such as “The Star Kings” and classic short stories like the intense, introspective “What’s It Like Out There?” He created Captain Future for pulp editor Mort Weisinger in 1939 and, upon moving to DC Comics in 1941, Weisinger offered Hamilton work on comics scripts. Hamilton quickly became a major Superman writer. In addition, he wrote Tommy Tomorrow features for ACTION COMICS and classic stories for DC editor Julius Schwartz’s science fiction comics.
In 1952, Hamilton teamed Superman and Batman in “The Mightiest Team in the World” (SUPERMAN #76), a story he conceived as a minor one-shot adventure. Editor Jack Schiff soon made the Superman-Batman team a regular feature in WORLD’S FINEST, where Hamilton wrote the majority of stories until 1966. In other Batman, Superman, and Legion of Super-Heroes stories, Hamilton introduced such memorable characters as Batwoman, the Composite Superman, Element Lad, Dream Girl, Timber Wolf, and Brainiac 5.
Hamilton retired from comics in 1966 and lived with his wife, Leigh Brackett (a science-fiction novelist and screenwriter whose credits include The Big Sleep and The Empire Strikes Back), until his death in 1977.

Summary: Superman and Batman first teamed up in these stories from comics’ Golden Age, reprinted here for the first time in one massive hardcover. In these tales, which feature frequent guest stars Robin, Lois Lane, Commissioner Gordon and Perry White, the two heroes battle crime in the past, present and future, including each other’s greatest foes: Lex Luthor and The Joker!

  1. I think it’s pretty interesting that DC opted to restart the Superman volume numbering for the Yang/Romita run, but didn’t restart the numbering on the actual title (they did the same for the new Batgirl team). I wonder what the rationale is behind the decision to do one but not the other.

  2. Two questions:
    – Where’s the “8-page sneak peek chapter” in most of these books? Only Cyborg vol. 1 has it listed in its contents.
    – Why is the Batman by Neal Adams Omnibus missing The Brave and the Bold #102? This story was missing from the 3-volume set and the DC Universe by Neal Adams collection, too.

  3. “See why Lee is considered the greatest artist of his generation.” By whom? Who else is in that “generation”? This is a pretty outrageous claim to make.

    So Wonder Woman: Earth One won’t be for sale in the U.K.? Why?

    It’s hard to imagine sales for Vertigo series getting much better now that they’ve pushed the price of single issues up to $4. Who wouldn’t just wait for the trade of the first six issues of something like Art Ops when it’s priced at $15–and easy to order online at one third to one half off? That works out to about the retail price of two single issues. Sorry, comics shops!

    Out of curiosity, do all of DC’s hardcovers, including the so-called deluxe editions, still have those cheaply glued, far too tight spines that make any full-bleed art, not to mention double-page spreads, a complete pain to read? That alone would put me off buying anything.

  4. Mike: Brave and the Bold #102 is missing probably because Adams only illustrated the final seven pages of the story (finishing it up for regular artist Jim Aparo.)

  5. You’re right, Charlie (though it was actually 8 pages) – but considering how ridiculously complete the DC Adams collections have otherwise been, it seems an odd thing to leave out.

    (Then again, the recent Deadman softcovers omitted the ’80s reprint covers and some text from the hardcover, and the early GL/GA collections overlooked Adams’ final Green Lantern short story from Flash #226. DC has a long history of overlooking noteworthy material in its collections of classic material.)

  6. That WW Earth One solicit doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. Contributor bio doesn’t even mention Yanick and the summary is like HEY REMEMBER SUPERMAN AND BATMAN?

  7. Excellent blog right here! Additionally your website a lot up fast!

    What web host are you using? Can I get your associate link for your host?
    I want my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  8. No mention of Action Comics and Superman/WonderWoman. :( – though looking at the entry for Superman, methinks 41-46 on both counts is a safe bet. Thanx for the info on Batgirl and Catwoman, #46/#47 will be my last issues with them.
