This was announced over a year ago as part of the Dark Line IIRC.
Glad to see it finally is seeing the light of day.


#2273

Oh, Mike ‘Revival’ Norton on art? Could be good.


#2274

Even further back, it was one of the post-Convergence books announced in Feb 2015.

That’s odd - I’m sure there have been comics in which Jack Napier has been a character before - and not just the adaptations of the Burton movies.


#2277

Not that I can remember, Dave.


#2278

The name popped up as graffiti in Earth One


#2279

I just looked it up to check and Brubaker and Phillips’ Gotham Noir featured the character.


#2280

Looks like it finally confirmed. Hickman is going to DC.

That tweet is from nearly 18 months ago.


#2282

At this point, Hickman and I stopped at a Bojangles for fried chicken, something we’d been talking about for the entire car ride. As we ate, we got to talking about his love of the Legion of Super-Heroes

As we wrote about back in March 2016 (see below), Hickman has talked about working with DC as recently as the “Rebirth” launch. And the writer/artist has also been very public about his interest in Legion of Super-Heroes.

Hickman has spoken on several occasions in the past about his interest in DC’s Legion of Super-Heroes, once revealing that it was the first comic book he’d ever read.

Hickman, a fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes, has periodically been associated with rumors about that property.

I’m just saying :smirk:


#2283

Oops.

I posted it because it seemed to be in response to a tweet by Jim Lee saying that he and Hickman were eating together in the Warner Brothers commissary. Didn’t realize it was from last year.


#2284

Hickman and LoSH would be a huge mistake.
Cause you better get ready for not being able to handle the large cast and Brainy making charts


#2285

How that goes in my head:

JIM: Wow, you’re putting that food away like a MATTER-EATER, LAD!
JON: munch munch
JIM: You don’t have to be a BRAINIAC to figure out you’re enjoying that!
JON: munch munch
JIM: Help yourself to seconds! Go on, don’t be a SHRINKING VIOLET about it!
JON: munch munch
JIM: Wow, that plate’s just disappearing like LIGHTING, LAD!
JON: munch m–
JIM: OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE WRITE THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES FOR US, HERE, TAKE ALL THE MONEY, TAKE MY WATCH, TAKE MY SHIRT…

They were eating avocado toast.


#2287

What’s wrong with charts? :confused:


#2288

Well, there’s charts and then there’s how Hickman used them

(pic is from an online parody)


#2289

Hmm. Looks kind of like the Legion’s mission monitor board :wink:

DC’s November solicits are up in the usual places, and collected in the Solicitations for November thread.
