DC Week-In-Review: The Next Generation

DC Week-In-Review: The Next Generation

By Tim Beedle Friday, June 7th, 2013

A few weeks ago, we mentioned that the DC Week-In-Review would be going on a short hiatus before returning in a new format. What we didn’t mention was what that format is.

Well, you’re about to find out. Welcome to the new, fan-driven DC Week-In-Review. Yes, rather than us telling you about the exciting stuff taking place in the world of DC Comics each week, we’re giving your fellow fans (or, more technically, their tweets) the spotlight. After all, there’s no better gauge of what’s exciting to fans than…well, the fan community!

What’s exciting fans this week? Man of Steel, Villains Month, the new Green Lantern creative teams, Superman Unchained and more! For a snapshot of what DC Comics fans are talking about this week, take a look a below. If you scroll further down, you'll find links to the stories and videos (including the latest Man of Steel trailer) that prompted some of their tweets. And to be a part of the conversation in future DC Week-In-Reviews, make sure you’re on Twitter and that you tweet @DCComics about what’s exciting you each week in the world of DC Comics.
