Coverage for DC COMICS – THE NEW 52 just keeps on coming! CNN.com looked at the increased – and still increasing – diversity in the comic book industry, highlighting DC Comics – The New 52. According to writer Judd Winick, who was interviewed for the piece because of his work on BATWING, “We want to attack it in kind of a really honest way." CNN.com also featured Tony S. Daniel’s artwork for DETECTIVE COMICS #1 in their look at the week’s top comic book releases. The ASSOCIATED PRESS cited the resurgence of MEN OF WAR and BLACKHAWKS as a return to the venerable war genre in comic books – supported by interviews with writers Ivan Brandon and Mike Costa. Brandon (MEN OF WAR) embraced the challenge of creating real-world heroes in a world populated by superhumans. He said, “If you exist in this real army and try to keep all of that real as possible, what, realistically, would the addition of superheroes to that world, what would that mean? How would you react to that?” Added Costa of BLACKHAWKS, “It's closer to a war book than it is a super hero book. This is a group of people, when there are crises of a certain nature, are scrambled to respond to it. It's like Seal Team Six in the DC Universe.” Canada’s top modern rock station, 102.1 THE EDGE spoke with writer/artist Tony S. Daniel about DETECTIVE COMICS #1 and the Dark Knight’s infamous rogues gallery.
