ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY continued their exclusive weekly previews of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 with BATMAN #2, which received prominent placement on the site’s homepage. The preview was picked up by PEREZ HILTON. “There's Batman and bad guys and the Bat-cycle! What more could you ask for?” wrote Perez.
MAXIM caught up with DC Entertainment Co-Publisher and JUSTICE LEAGUE artist Jim Lee about New York Comic Con, which kicks off tonight at the Javits Center in Manhattan. “I’d say bathe every day, that would be top on my priority list,” Lee said while distributing his basic rules for surviving NYCC. “I would think, as a fan, plan your day. If you wing it, you’ll have a decent experience, but you will not be utilizing the experience to the full capacity.” Be sure to head over to MAXIM to read the full interview and check out your exclusive first look at Jim’s variant cover for BATMAN #2, in stores next week.
BET broke the exclusive news that New York-based Marc Bernardin would be taking over as the writer for STATIC SHOCK, beginning with issue #7. “I relate to his love for family, his sort of passion for science and technology,” Bernardin said of series protagonist Virgil Hawkins. “I like his selflessness when it comes to the people of his city.”
“I wanted to get to know Virgil a bit more than we have so far,” Bernardin revealed to COMIC BOOK RESOURCES when asked about the direction he intends to take on STATIC SHOCK. “The thing that defines a hero is choice. They choose to do the hard thing when everyone else would do the easy one. They choose to put themselves in harm's way. So we need to know more about the kind of person who makes that kind of choice, especially one so young.”
