(Everybody’s Talkin’ About) DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, Friday...

By David Hyde Friday, October 7th, 2011
For the sixth consecutive week, IFANBOY has selected a title from DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 as their “Pick of the Week.” This time around? O.M.A.C. #2 by Dan DiDio, Keith Giffen and Scott Koblish. Check out their complete coverage to see why they “love this book” and why they’re calling O.M.A.C. “ridiculously fun.” If you haven’t been to the DC Comics Facebook page today, head on over there to check out an exclusive preview of LEGION LOST #2. After all, what better way is there to connect to another world than through social media, right? In anticipation of J.H. Williams III’s signing in Los Banos, California tomorrow, local paper THE MODESTO BEE profiled the BATWOMAN artist and co-writer. And be sure not to miss J.H. when he comes to San Francisco as part of the DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 Art Tour this December. And speaking of events, it was just last Friday that COMIC BOOK RESOURCES and Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles hosted a wrap party for the first month of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. The writers and artists in attendance included Brian Buccellato, Bernard Chang, Mike Costa, Dan DiDio, Josh Fialkov, Sterling Gates, Adam Glass, Kyle Higgins and Scott Lobdell. You’ve already heard them talk about which titles from DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 were their favorites. Today, check out this latest video interview as they all tease what to look forward to in the upcoming issues of their respective series. “The best reason you should come back for issue two and the rest of the series is basically because issue one is a pilot – it sets up the status-quo, inverts it and then tells you what the direction of the series is going to be going forward,” said NIGHTWING and DEATHSTROKE writer Kyle Higgins. “Issue two and from then on out is exploring what that direction is. So all the character development, motivations, twists and turns, the stories of these characters and the explorations of their lives (and what it means to be in Nightwing’s case, a hero in Gotham city making a life for himself or in Deathstroke’s case, the best mercenary in the DC Universe trying to reestablish his reputation and credibility) are only going to come out through long-form storytelling.” To be continued …
