Hi there. Bob Wayne here, DC’s SVP – Sales. In the time I've worked at DC Comics, and in the time I’ve been reading comics before that, I've witnessed a number of industry defining moments.
You can count on these 52. And I can count on the dozens of folks here at DC Entertainment. It is an honor to work on the Sales, Marketing & Business Development team, which also includes the areas of Franchise Management, Interactive, and Publicity. Across the DC Comics, Vertigo, and MAD brands. Many title pages on your new #1’s read, “DC Comics Proudly Presents.” That’s how we feel today about DC Comics – The New 52. Pride. I am so proud, along with our creators and my colleagues and our thousands of retail partners, to present these stories and characters to you.
You might not know this, but I am not a very patient person. I couldn’t wait till Christmas morn to open gifts, never knew the need to savor a fine wine, and on most days, fast food isn’t fast enough. So, as you could imagine, the anticipation for the midnight kick-off of FLASHPOINT #5 and JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 is killing me. Even though its less than two days away.
If Jack Kirby were still alive, today would have been his 94th birthday. The King, as he is fondly referred to as, impacted the comic book industry in monumental ways. To celebrate, we thought we’d catch up with some of the writers who are bringing new life to some of Jack’s classic characters in DC Comics-The New 52. With contemporary representations of characters such as OMAC and Etrigan the Demon, Kirby’s legacy lives on and is as strong as ever.
There's been plenty of speculation about the Justice Society in The New 52 – and we can now confirm that they will, in fact, be back! As with everything else with DC Comics - The New 52, however, there's a significant twist. What is it? We're not saying. Just. Quite. Yet. "It's everything you want, but not what you expect," promises Eddie Berganza, DC Comics Executive Editor. Stay tuned to THE SOURCE as this develops, as they say.
