As if he weren’t busy enough with his duties as Co-Publisher of DC Comics, our very own Dan DiDio is a constant presence at cons across the country and around the globe. From time to time, we’ll get a note from Dan with a photo of him and some of our great fans, so we thought it’d be nice to give a few of those dedicated, costume-wearing readers a little time under The Source’s spotlight. So here are a few shots from Dan’s most recent jaunt across the country with some familiar faces.
I wanted to follow the Co-Publisher's blog with a more personal update of my own creative work. For fans of my art--fear not, drawing comic books is actually a part of my new job description, and I actually plan on increasing the frequency of which you will be seeing my work. It’s important to me not only on a personal level that I continue with a hand in the actual creation of new comics but also for a broader mission. The mission?
We can't promise it'll make you any faster, or that it'll respond to your willpower, but hey -- that's what our imaginations are for. But we can promise a way for you to get your hands on one. With BRIGHTEST DAY banner issues THE FLASH #1 and GREEN LANTERN #53 soliciting in the February issue of PREVIEWS, DC Comics is offering promotional FLASH and GREEN LANTERN rings to qualifying retailers. Cool, right? "But Alex, how do I qualify?" Good question:
Well, we're hoping that by now you've read OUTSIDERS #26, the first issue of writer Dan DiDio and artist Philip Tan's run on the team series. If not, you should swing down the street to your local shop and plop a few bucks down for the issue. I'll happily wait here and do a few things in the meantime. Back? Well, what'd you think? The issue had team tension, rain-soaked slashing, tormented heroes and a surprise cameo. Pretty cool, huh? And yeah, about that cameo...click below for more. "Spoiler alert," as the kids say...
What a week, huh? From BRIGHTEST DAY to a new LEGION ongoing series, we’ve rolled out a truckload of news to keep fans chatting for at least the next hour or so. But there’s more. Seriously. History was made in the DCU a few years back with the launch of 52, a weekly, year-long series filling in the gap of time between INFINITE CRISIS and ONE YEAR LATER. Since then, the weekly series has been a staple for the DCU. So what could we possibly do to keep the things fresh and exciting?
