Counting down to DC Comics-The New 52: A note from Bob Wayne

Counting down to DC Comics-The New 52: A note from Bob Wayne

By DCE Editorial Monday, August 29th, 2011
Hi there. Bob Wayne here, DC’s SVP – Sales. In the time I've worked at DC Comics, and in the time I’ve been reading comics before that, I've witnessed a number of industry defining moments. The debut of the Justice League of America in The Brave & The Bold. The launch of the “New Look’ Batman. The comic shop-only version of New Teen Titans. The Dark Knight Returns. Watchmen. Arkham Asylum. Batman: Hush. Green Lantern: Rebirth. (Yes, amazingly, I’m only mentioning DC-related defining moments… Of course, I’m in Sales. And I mentioned projects by two of my bosses… Because I’d like to stay in Sales…) And of course there are my continuing discussions with DC Legal over the rights to the phrase “Wayne Manor”…. This week’s debut of The New 52 is the biggest, most sweeping change to date. Our characters have often been updated, because our characters are always evolving. But this is the first time all of our characters will be presented in an exciting new way all at the same time. It all begins at 12:01am on Wednesday, August 31st with the JUSTICE LEAGUE #1. It’s a great read and a lot of fun. I‘m sure of it … I already have a copy here in my office. (Yes, there are some cool perks to this job…) Just make sure you read FLASHPOINT #5 first. That issue has a great double-page spread that is a really cool bridge into The New 52. Conveniently, it’s also on sale at 12:01am on Wednesday, August 31st. (I did mention I’m the SVP-Sales, didn’t I?) So get in line now…. And after you read them, let us know what you think. And please take a look at OMAC #2 in October… Trust me on that one…. Best, Bob Wayne SVP - Sales
