DC has announced “legendary Batman comic book artist Jerry Robinson, a key contributor during the early years of the Batman comic book series, will be a creative consultant for the company.”
This is so important that they sent out a press release, but the information isn’t anywhere on their website as of this writing. It’s not really news, though, is it? More of a lovely gesture.
Since no specific tasks or duties are announced, that makes me wonder if this isn’t just a way to get Mr. Robinson on the payroll and cover his health insurance. Which is a wonderful thing for DC to do and a good way to do it, if so.
Meanwhile, Marvel has announced that they’re bringing three out-of-print Omnibuses back: Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus, Fantastic Four Omnibus, and Uncanny X-Men Omnibus. Good news. Books like this should stay in print.
