From Superman vs. Muhammad Ali to even stranger appearances such as Orson Welles and John Walsh, celebrities have a long tradition of showing up in the DC Universe. This year won't be any different, as British comedian and television host Jonathan Ross will appear in next months’ KNIGHT & SQUIRE #5. Here are a few words about Mr. Ross's cameo from the Knight & Squire creative team:
It may or may not be good to be the King, but it's definitely an amazing time to be a Batman fan. Month in and month out, the writers and artists are knocking out some great books with a truly distinctive look and feel to them. Take Paul Cornell and Jimmy Broxton's wry, action packed mini-series KNIGHT AND SQUIRE: it's funny, playful and, in just two issues, the series has introduced a slew of memorable and quirky new villains.
In this second issue from the team of writer Paul Cornell and artist Jimmy Broxton, our trusty heroes venture into rural England – or as they know it, home. But when someone starts using dangerous dark magic, they spring into action only to face a surprising and unassuming enemy. Can they take down a powerful magical enemy with their usual wit and charm? Let’s hope so. KNIGHT AND SQUIRE #2 hits Wednesday. [gallery link="file"]
I interrupt my usual DC Nation-ness to bring you, the DC Comics reader, a very important announcement: The comics shipping this month are freaking awesome! I know you're thinking "But Ian, the comics are awesome every month!" and you're totally right - they are - but this month features so many special items I wanted to make sure that you were perfectly clear on the degree of amazing we've got going on. Throughout October we are bringing you specials, new projects, new formats, new beginnings, and much more.
You’ve heard from Paul Cornell and K&S Editor Janelle Siegel. You’ve seen a few pages. But why not check out a few more from the first issue of writer Cornell and artist Jimmy Broxton’s mini-series, which hits tomorrow? Hop across the Atlantic and visit a city with its own duo of crime-fighters much like Batman and Robin – but not.
Gotham’s got the Dynamic Duo – but that’s not the only powerful pair of vigilantes protecting a major metropolis. London has Knight and Squire, the British heroes and frequent allies of Batman and Robin. And in a secret pub within the city where peace is kept magically, heroes and villains alike gather over a pint and talk about their day. But magic, as we all know, is a fickle thing – so what happens when the barriers are dropped and a building packed with heroes and villains confront each other at the same time?
