Welcome to Your Con Away From Con

Over 50,000 people will be at WonderCon this weekend, but we’re guessing that if you’re reading this, you’re probably not one of them. That means you’re going to miss out on the chance to soak up the Southern California rain or take photos with all the cosplayers, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be missing out on any of the exciting DC news and announcements.

CON AWAY FROM CON STARTS HERE! From the mystery of Pandora to the highly anticipated Batman: Earth One, the first DC Comics-All Access panel of WonderCon 2012 opened with a bang.  Lots of questions from fans, spoilers (courtesy of Mr. Scott Lobdell), and did we mention a call for the return of Canterbury Cricket?

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day and all across the nation, parades will be held to celebrate this great occasion. But not all parades are created equal — in fact, some can be downright boring.

Vertigo Week-In-Review: March 16

We like to stay busy over here at Vertigo, and our guess is that our readers are the same way. So, you’ve probably missed out on some of the big Vertigo news to hit the website this week. That’s okay, we understand. But we still want you to be informed. Informed people are interesting people. They’re attractive people. And we want our readers to be interesting and attractive. (We’d also like them to be very wealthy and take us on all-expenses-paid cruises to the islands, but we’ll settle for two out of three.)

 

DC Week-In-Review: March 16

We’re not claiming to be Guardians over here, but we’re pretty sure there’s a cosmic law stating that any week beginning and ending with BEFORE WATCHMEN news is going to be a good one. And this week was very good here at DCComics.com. We announced the release dates for the first four issues of Before Watchmen, broke down a couple of “wonderful” pages from BATMAN: ARKHAM UNHINGED, and debuted an exclusive image from SUPERMAN VS. THE ELITE, our latest full-length animated feature. And all of this was before the start of WonderCon on Friday.

 

Signs You’re Suffering from March Madness

CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

It starts with 64...then there’s 32...then 16...then 8...until it’s finally down to just four survivors! Some new reality show? Perhaps!

Maybe you'll recognize the symptoms in this classic piece by John Caldwell from MAD #403
