DC Comics - The Rebirth is Here


#3493

Marvel is also a DC character.


#3494

If Yellow is Fear, Green is Willpower and Orange is avarice, sure, the major energies of the universe can be Mystery, Wonder, Wisdom and Entropy.


#3495

But (Johnny) DC will be reborn after Metal, surely.


#3496

Johnny Thunder was not in the Metal Men!

#3498

I get a “this video is not available” on that. Is it a regional thing? I’m sure I’ve watched other Syfy Wire videos before.

Writer/artist Joelle Jones and colorist Laura Allred will launch a new Catwoman ongoing series, DC has announced at Chicago’s C2E2 convention. Catwoman #1 launches July 4, the same day Batman #50 is due out on shelves.

In the series, Selina Kyle learns that a new criminal Catwoman is operating in Gotham and sets out to stop her.


#3501

I feel like I’ve read the Selina taking down another Catwoman story a couple times before. But I love Joelle Joness artwork, so this is a buy for me.


#3502

Finally!

Action Comics is on sale at ComiXology. Jurgens run is getting favourable reviews here. How does it compare to Tomasi & Gleason’s Superman? How would you explain the difference in tone between the two?


#3504

Jurgens’ run is good but doesn’t compare to Tomasi and Gleason’s. It reads like an updated take on his 90’s Superman material complete with A, B, C and D plot structure. I liked it especially the early stuff with Super-Lex. It’s worth a read but will pale in comparison to its sister book.


#3505

Jurgens run is very old school, great big arcs that feel like they really matter in the cannon of the superman ‘world’. I thought it was great, just a perefect wave of nostalgia with loads going on. There was only 1 arc that I wasn’t really enamoured with. It touches on a lot of the Rebirth mythology as well, like Mr Oz.

Compared to gleasons which is a more whimsical take, with a lot of shorter arcs and done in ones, and feels more standalone. He also focuses a lot more on Jon.

Interesting article on DC comics new approach in this review of the Earth One Green Lantern GN:


#3508

I was initially excited about the hard sci-fi bent of this book but that was dampened after reading the first volume of Invisible Republic. This article really sparked my interest again though.


#3509

I like the Earth One GN’s. I think there is a middle ground between the E1 and All Star comics to provide a framework for future DC movies too in somewhat the same way Marvel used The Ultimates to sell the characters and stories as “cinematic”.


#3510

Funnily enough, I actually think of the Earth One universe as almost a “DC Cinematic Universe”.


#3511

I think it’s a pity the people making the films don’t.


#3512

That title is pretty much one for super tradewaiting. I think it’s fantastic, but it’s a slow burner, even when read in 5 issu chunks.
