After a brief hiatus, Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy’s creepy cool Vertigo series The Wake continues today with THE WAKE #6. Now, if you’re reading this post on DCComics.com (or even if you’ve come across it on VertigoComics.com), there’s a fair chance you haven’t been picking this one up. And that’s a shame because it’s amazing. For a sci-fi/horror book, this tale asks some big questions and seems to span a considerable length of time (we’re talking millennia). There’s quite a lot we still don’t know about this sci-fi tale, however, here are a few things that we do…
We’ve seen the future of Batman and it is… LEGO bricks? Okay, maybe not, but Batman gets a healthy dose of both in our latest episode of DC All Access. First, Scott Snyder joins us via our magic screen (that’s right…maaaaagic!) to discuss this week’s future shock Batman #28. Then later in the episode, LEGO Blair interviews a few of the DC Comics super heroes who are featured in the smash hit The Lego Movie.
Pop the champagne! Tomorrow we dive into a brand new year, but TODAY we enjoy a brand new installment of "DC All Access"! In our final episode of 2013, Jim Lee and Scott Snyder discuss what's coming in Superman Unchained, while Vertigo Executive Editor Shelly Bond gives us an early look at the eagerly awaited Dead Boy Detectives. Also, Tom Taylor shares what's in store for the second year of the digital first Injustice: Gods Among Us comic, we embarrass ourselves with some DC All Access bloopers, and members of the DC team share their New Year's resolutions.
Scott Snyder announced today via Twitter that BATMAN #28 will be a special issue that shows what's happening in the world of Batman after ZERO YEAR and will be drawn by Dustin Nguyen!
“We agreed,” says Snyder, “that with all the crazy stuff that's going to happen in 2014 - and my goal above all in 2014 is to keep things daring and fun - it'd be a thrill to do a total spoiler issue. A stand-alone issue that takes place in the near future and reveals all sorts of massive surprises coming to Gotham.”
Six years ago, the legend of Batman emerged amid the greatest catastrophe Gotham had ever endured. A maniac calling himself The Riddler shut down all electric power mere days before a terrifying superstorm. But the Dark Knight isn’t the only hero to surface during this moment in time known only as the ZERO YEAR!
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read BATMAN #25 or the ZERO YEAR tie-ins yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
