We’ve all be there. Discussing our favorite super heroes with our friend (let’s randomly say, oh, Jimmy) and suddenly the conversation turns to who would win a fight. Not between us and Jimmy (obviously, that’d be us—what now, Jimmy?!) but in match-ups between Superman and Batman, Wonder Woman and SHAZAM!, the Flash and Green Lantern. The debate rages, and even though Jimmy is clearly wrong because he’s a big, stupid, jerkface, you never come to an agreement.
For some, April 1st means a day of practical jokes and pranks.
But here at the DC Entertainment offices, this date signifies the birthday of beloved MAD icon Alfred E. Neuman. This year, Alfred turns 12 (again!), and what better way to celebrate than by giving him a shot at being a superhero?
Throughout the course of the month, various DC Comics titles will have MAD themed variant covers, injecting the magazine’s unique blend of humor and satire into The New 52. Below, take a look at where you can check out all of these covers:
The threat that led to the formation of the Guardians of the Universe returns—and he’s set his sights on the biggest and brightest of the Corps!
This month, “Wrath of the First Lantern” continues an epic, destiny-fueled adventure as this power hungry First Lantern experiments on Sinestro! Plus, find out how far Hal Jordan is willing to go in order to save the universe.
Pack your theoretical bags and don’t forget your magic-repellant enchantments and custom-made Jay Garrick Flash helmet because this week we're taking a little trip over to EARTH 2—home to the re-imagined members of the Justice Society of America!
You know that scene in movies where one person says to the other “This town isn’t big enough for the both of us” and then there’s a face off and one person either ends up dead or run out of town?
Ah Valentine’s Day. That time of year where love saturates the air like cheap air freshener in a dorm the day of a parental visit. You literally can’t escape it. No matter how hard you try. It’s everywhere. Every. Where.
In the spirit of this wonderful love-filled holiday (and in the midst of our lonely nights eating ice cream on the couch while watching back-to-back marathons of Justice League Unlimited and Love Connection) our cookie-dough addled brains began to wonder: what would it be like to date in the DC Universe?

So here’s the sad news: Doug Mahnke and I are closing the GREEN LANTERN SAGA that began with GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH #1 with this May’s 64-page GREEN LANTERN #20. As every storyline is coming to a head, it feels like the right time. The book is still doing great. The characters are as vibrant as ever. Let’s go out how we started – on a high note.
Counting up between the GREEN LANTERN monthly series, REBIRTH, BLACKEST NIGHT and the various one-shots and specials…that makes over 100 issues of GREEN LANTERN I’ve had the absolute privilege, pleasure and fortune to write.
There’s little question that we comic book fans love visual storytelling. It’s why we read comic books and watch blockbuster movies, sometimes even at the same time. (We once tried to read WATCHMEN while watching the Matrix trilogy. Yeah… Let’s just say that it was a long time before we could look at a plate of calamari without screaming and running away in terror.)
