DC Ink and Zoom Titles Updated Release Schedule

Launching a new imprint, particularly to target a market you’ve had trouble approaching in the past, is hard. That’s why I’m not surprised, now that we’re in 2019, to see that the DC Ink and DC Zoom schedules have changed a bit. I wrote about the planned first releases last summer, but now that the first books will be out in just a couple of months, I thought I’d check back into the scheduled titles. With DC Zoom, for middle […]

100 Greatest Moments Super Heroines, Series Expanded

Friend of the blog Bob Greenberger has been writing a series of hardcover books about DC comic characters under the umbrella title 100 Greatest Moments. The first book, reviewed by KC, was Justice League: 100 Greatest Moments: Highlights from the History of the World’s Greatest Superheroes. The second is DC Comics Super Heroines: 100 Greatest Moments. The publisher was kind enough to send me a copy, and while I’m thrilled about the idea of the content, seeing so many accomplished […]

Does This Look Like a God to You?

I’m glad to see a woman writing Wonder Woman, given that this is the time where the character should be getting more attention. In my opinion, G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) is taking some time to find her feet, but the current storyline, pitting Veronica Cale against the Amazon Princess, shows promise. Cale, created by Greg Rucka to be Wonder Woman’s “Lex Luthor”, is a high-powered executive whose daughter was kidnapped by gods in order to blackmail her. She’s a […]

Archie Puts Out More Sabrina Comics

What do you do when you’ve got a TV show based on your comic property, and yet you can’t get any issues of the comic book series out because the writer is busy with the TV work? If you’re Archie Comics, you plaster Sabrina’s name on your flagship title to jump on the bandwagon. According to Decider, Archie (which relaunched to be more Riverdale-like with issue #700 in November) will become Archie and Sabrina with issue #705, due in May. […]

Love and Capes to Return!

Yesterday, on Valentine’s Day, Thom Zahler announced that he would be releasing more of his superhero romantic comedy Love and Capes, and I was thrilled. I’m a huge fan, so much so that it was one of the four titles I picked for my site header image. The story of Mark and Abby has progressed from revealing his secret identity through marriage plans, starting life together, and expecting a baby. It’s always been funny, heartwarming, and charming, as you can […]

Reign of the Supermen

Reign of the Supermen, the sequel to The Death of Superman, is my favorite of any of the original DC universe animated movies because it does more than just showcase a series of powered battles. Those are included here, of course, but we also get a lot more focus on the effects of superheroes on our society. After Superman’s death, Lois (Rebecca Romijn) and the Kents are consoling each other on their loss, then Lois and Wonder Woman (Rosario Dawson) […]
