John Rozum called me today to tell me that he’s leaving STATIC SHOCK. DC Comics has had a great relationship with John for 15 years, and he and I had a great conversation about new ideas, new concepts and moving forward. We’re all excited to see what comes next.
This has been such a monumental week for DC Comics. What we launched with (the already sold out!) JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 was absolutely amazing. And what’s more exciting still is that it was just a first taste of what’s to come.
With the release of JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, DC Comics-The New 52 officially kicked off. Coverage has been widespread today. Looking for a comprehensive overview? Look no further.
If you’ve already been to our main website today, you noticed our new page devoted to The New 52. Starting with the “Superman” family and going all the way through the “Young Justice” group, the page is a quick and easy visual guide to the 52 titles we will be publishing this fall beginning with Geoff Johns and Jim Lee's JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 on August 31st. Be sure to keep checking the page for updates throughout the summer.
We've spoken a lot about the editorial side of yesterday's historic announcement, with our editors Bob Harras and Eddie Berganza taking lead on things like new stories and finding the perfect writers to handle each of our books. I'd also like to call attention the visual side of this major initiative.
Hey DC Nation,
My first blog here, coming at you from the 6th floor of 1700 Broadway, home of the DC Comics’ Editorial Team. From my window I look down on the front of David Letterman’s Ed Sullivan Theater, where every afternoon the shouts of fans of a different kind can be heard. And out my door are the offices of my Bat-Group comrades who have made me feel so welcome; Mike Marts, Rachel Gluckstern, Rickey Purdin, Janelle Asselin, Harvey Richards and Katie Kubert. In other words, from where I sit, life looks good!
Bob Harras, Editor-in-Chief here. I'm happy to introduce the team that will be working closely with me across our DC Universe, Vertigo and MAD imprints, as we continue to make DC Comics the destination for exciting, thought-provoking and ground-breaking comic entertainment
First up, I'm pleased to announce that Eddie Berganza has been named Executive Editor of our DC Universe line.
Day 1 of NYCC is winding down – but not so fast, Source readers. Right now, I’m sitting in Room 1A08-12 as DC Comics Co-Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio hold court with an all star collection of talent, including Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, VP-Sales Bob Wayne and Editor in Chief Bob Harras. If you’re nearby, sit back, relax and prepare for another exciting panel experience. If you’re not, stay tuned to The Source.
