And so we come to Week Four–marking the end of September, the month that ushered in the debut of DC Comics-The New 52 and the unprecedented transformation of the entire DC Universe. It’s hard to believe we’re finally here because for us September started a long time ago. Let me explain:
It’s been quite a ride since the writers conference that initiated this evolution. It’s been a year of pitch meetings, story conferences and design sessions that often went far into the night. It’s been a year of hard work on everyone’s part and truth be told – it’s been a lot of fun.
As we get ready for the third week of full releases from DC Comics-The New 52, the previews keep rolling in. Want to know what’s coming up? Check out some of the press highlights from the past few days.
THE LOS ANGELES TIMES’ HERO COMPLEX shed a spotlight on local Los Angeles writers Kyle Higgins and J.T. Krul with their exclusive previews of NIGHTWING #1 and CAPTAIN ATOM #1.
I swear, working with Scott Lobdell is just like working with a kid sometimes.
Can’t wait until next Wednesday? Check out some exclusive previews to get you through the weekend:
