DC Week-In-Review: February 22nd

DC Week-In-Review: February 22nd

By Tim Beedle Friday, February 22nd, 2013

We’ve reached the end of the week, DC fans, and you know what that means—it’s time to go right back to the start and live it all over again! No, you haven’t found yourself in a classic (if slightly repetitive) Bill Murray movie. You’re in the Week-In-Review, and if you’ve never been here before, be ready for some real treats! Granted, they’re all treats that have already been served up here on DCComics.com, but they’re still pretty darn tasty, and you don’t even have to microwave them. In fact, you shouldn’t microwave them. That would involve microwaving your computer, and that’s a great way to blow up your kitchen and turn this week from a really good seven days into an insurance nightmare.

 

No, to enjoy the Week-In-Review, all you need to do is sit back, relax and read on. Here’s what went down this week on the DC Comics website…

 

Monday was a holiday, but if you thought that meant we’d be giving our Battle Arena fighters a day off, you don’t know us very well, do you? The Injustice Battle Arena entered its third week with a fight pitting the C-man against the Sea Man and a skirmish between a couple of dudes who are always saying the same words over and over. As usual, your votes determine the winner, but savvy fans know that it’s worth listening to our panels of celebrity experts before voting. Like Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. Or Tara Strong and Wayne Brady. Or Hart of Dixie’s Scott Porter. All of them have shared their thoughts on this week’s match-ups (and in some cases, the serious problem of dolphin bullying).

 

Of course, none of it changes the fact that there can only be two winners each week. So, who’s moving on? Well, click below to see the fights!

 

Aquaman vs. Cyborg

Green Lantern vs. Solomon Grundy

 

Looks like it was a good week for Green Lantern in general, as we then went on to announce the new Green Lantern creative teams. Yes, plural. As many fans know, every Green Lantern title is getting a new creative team in June. But did you know that we were also getting a new Lantern title? Well, you do now!

 

Also announced was the news that award winning book designer Chip Kidd would be designing the covers to the Before Watchmen deluxe editions. When their books are designed by a talented guy like Kidd, who wouldn’t want to watch the Watchmen?

Wednesday means new comics and new DCComics.com content from DC Collectibles. This week in the spotlight…Caption This! We give you a photo, you give us your most hilarity-rich caption, and all of us have a grand old time. Except for maybe Nightwing. He looks a little bored.

 

We’re not sure what he has to be bored about, though. After all, you just elected him as DC Comics’ Most Dateable Male Super Hero. How can you be bored when just about everyone reading DC comics wants to date you? So who was our most Most Dateable Female Super Hero? Well, click here and find out!

 

On Thursday, we posted the latest edition of 5.2 Reasons, which focused on the three newest titles to join DC COMICS – THE NEW 52. So have you read Justice League of America, Katana and Vibe? If you are, you’re probably excited for more, and while we can’t give that to you—yet—we suggest curbing your appetite by reading the column. Still hungry? Then maybe you should read what Geoff Johns and David Finch had to say about issue #1.

 

And if you’re still hungry after that, you should probably go get a burger or something.

 

Also on Thursday, we announced the new Batman/Superman title, which teams up not only two of our biggest super heroes, but also two pretty amazing creators—Greg Pak and Jae Lee.

 

Finally, Friday means a new installment of This Just Happened. If you’ve read either of this week’s debut comics, you know that Vibe is a sonic-based superhero. But that sound you’re hearing right now isn’t Vibe. It’s the sound of fans cranky with us for ruining the last page of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA’S VIBE #1. So click that link and join the chorus.

 

With that, we’ve reached the weekend and the end of this DC Week-In-Review. Be sure to be back on Monday for more great stuff from DC Comics and the final round of Injustice Battle Arena preliminaries. That’s right, the final four Battle Arena fighters will be revealed on Monday. Any thoughts on who they’ll be?

 

Take your guesses down below, and we’ll see you again in seven!
