Step aside, guys. In the world of DC Comics, this week belongs to the ladies.
Who’s that stopping by the DC office? Why, it’s none other than Paul Dini, and he’s just in time for Batman: An Animated Celebration! He’s here to discuss the new Batman: The Animated Series action figures, and he’s far from our only guest. Hart of Dixie’s Scott Porter shows off his awesome mobile mancave, Ivan Reis and Joe Prado discuss this week’s can’t-miss issue of Justice League, and we look at what happens when a Kryptonian gets her hands on a red power ring (let’s just say it ain’t good). Plus, Tiffany visits some of the DC landmarks on the Warner Bros.
Hey, guess what? This week’s DC Collectibles feature is all about the SUH-BOOFFS!
Okay, if you don’t know what we’re talking about, then you clearly haven’t “Super Best Friends Forever,” DC Nation’s awesome series of shorts featuring a distinctly different take on Batgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Girl. So we suggest clicking here and fixing that right now. Go on… It won’t take long, we promise!
Ah, Krypton… Maybe it was a nice place to visit, but if you’re a human, you probably wouldn’t want to live there. And you definitely don’t want it returning and destroying all things we hold dear. Unfortunately, that’s more or less what’s happening this month in the Superman family of comics.
This winter, the SUPERMAN universe will be welcoming a pair of two exciting new creative teams!
Beginning with issue #26, SUPERGIRL will kick off an all-new arc from writer Tony Bedard and artists Yildiray Cinar and Ray McCarthy. Following the stunning conclusion of “Krypton Returns,” this first issue centers around Supergirl arriving back on Earth with a new mission and a clearer understanding of her place in the universe. But a striking new foe prepares to welcome Supergirl home: Lobo! What could this mysterious new character want from Kara?
On Tuesday, May 7, Superman: Unbound flies into stores, fully ready for upload into your brains via your eyeballs. Based on the SUPERMAN: BRAINIAC graphic novel by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, the movie is the latest in the line of DC Universe Animated Original Movies, following the critically acclaimed Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 and Part 2, Justice League: Doom, Wonder Woman and more.
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:
