Yesterday, the newest version of the Justice League made its comic store debut in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #0. Set within the frozen isolation of Northern Ontario, Canada after the events of Forever Evil, the first issue offers a unique take on a super team crafted by the impeccable creative team of Jeff Lemire and Mike McKone. As most fans likely know, it’s rare that a comic debuts with a “zero issue.” We’re more accustomed to seeing new titles launch with an issue #1. This made us curious about other numbers associated with the debut of this brand new monthly.
SPOILER ALERT: Do not read any farther if you haven’t yet seen this week’s episode of Arrow, “Seeing Red” and don’t want to have the ending ruined for you. Fair warning.
We’re now in the third week of Batman Eternal, and DC’s new weekly Batman comic shows no sign of slowing down (as indicated by issue #3’s Batmobile meets bombs cover). A dangerously familiar villain is back in town and he’s wasting no time buying friends and high places, while poor Commissioner Gordon is stuck behind bars.
This weekend, while many of us were walking the WonderCon walk (hopefully in our most comfortable shoes), plenty of writers and journalists were hopping on news sites like IGN and Comic Book Resources to talk the WonderCon talk.
We spent the weekend surrounded by thousands of amazing people who love comics, we just posted the latest episode of our webseries devoted entirely to the world of comics, and now we’re looking ahead to tomorrow where we’ll be treated to a big stack of brand new, hot-off-the-presses…COMICS!
Badges? You don’t need no stinking badges! Not if you watch DC All Access!
Last week, many of you hit your nearest comic shop or favorite online retailer to grab the first issue of Batman Eternal, our brand new weekly comic featuring the Dark Knight and kicking off with one very bad night for Commissioner Gordon. Well, guess what?
