San Diego Comic-Con kicked off last night and DC Entertainment hit the ground running by debuting a staggering collection of Superman costumes in our interactive 4,500 square foot booth (#1915). The costumes on display span various incarnations of the Man of Steel on both the big and small screens, and have been donned by actors including Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, and Henry Cavill.
Following the events of this summer’s crossover “Trinity War,” a dark shadow will be cast across the DC Universe.
This September, all of the DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 titles will be replaced by Villains books. What happens when the heroes of the DC Universe fall and there’s nobody left to stop the villains from taking over? Find out this fall during Villain’s Month, which will spotlight 52 of the DC Universe’s biggest rogues in their own one-shots.
So here’s the sad news: Doug Mahnke and I are closing the GREEN LANTERN SAGA that began with GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH #1 with this May’s 64-page GREEN LANTERN #20. As every storyline is coming to a head, it feels like the right time. The book is still doing great. The characters are as vibrant as ever. Let’s go out how we started – on a high note.
Counting up between the GREEN LANTERN monthly series, REBIRTH, BLACKEST NIGHT and the various one-shots and specials…that makes over 100 issues of GREEN LANTERN I’ve had the absolute privilege, pleasure and fortune to write.
