Tuesday Roundup: October 16th
Everyone has their favorites in comics. Favorite characters. Favorite writers. Favorite artists. But every now and then, it’s fun, refreshing and absolutely essential to welcome someone new to the fold. After all, all of your favorites were once brand new themselves.
Christy Marx isn’t exactly new to comics and certainly isn’t new to writing fantasy, but she’s new to DC COMICS – THE NEW 52, and new to Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld, which is the anchor series in our new Sword of Sorcery comic. Amethyst made her New 52 debut in last month’s, SWORD OF SORCERY #0, but her adventures continue this week with its issue #1. You can check out a great preview of the issue and an interview with Ms. Marx below. And while you’re at it, be sure to check out the preview of CATWOMAN #13, which features the new creative team of Ann Nocenti and Rafa Sandoval, and the preview of JUSTICE LEAGUE #13, featuring the New 52 debut of Cheetah, and DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS #13, which begins a fresh new story featuring Black Lightning and Blue Devil. There’s a whole lot new this week, and it’s standing nicely side-by-side with Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Nightwing, the Minutemen, the Green Lantern Corps and many more of your favorites.
