We wouldn’t be true to the New York spirit if we did this episode small!
After last month’s future-set spoiler issue, this week’s BATMAN #29 marks the return of “Zero Year” and the conclusion of the storyline’s second chapter, “Dark City.” If you’ve been reading, you know that the still pretty untested Dark Knight has been dealing with no shortage of problems, including a city-wide blackout, a major storm and plenty of trouble from the Gotham City Police Department. However, most disturbing of all may be the grotesquely malformed corpses that have been popping up around the city—the gruesome calling card of a previously unheard of villain known as Doctor Death.
After a brief hiatus, Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy’s creepy cool Vertigo series The Wake continues today with THE WAKE #6. Now, if you’re reading this post on DCComics.com (or even if you’ve come across it on VertigoComics.com), there’s a fair chance you haven’t been picking this one up. And that’s a shame because it’s amazing. For a sci-fi/horror book, this tale asks some big questions and seems to span a considerable length of time (we’re talking millennia). There’s quite a lot we still don’t know about this sci-fi tale, however, here are a few things that we do…
We’ve seen the future of Batman and it is… LEGO bricks? Okay, maybe not, but Batman gets a healthy dose of both in our latest episode of DC All Access. First, Scott Snyder joins us via our magic screen (that’s right…maaaaagic!) to discuss this week’s future shock Batman #28. Then later in the episode, LEGO Blair interviews a few of the DC Comics super heroes who are featured in the smash hit The Lego Movie.
Pop the champagne! Tomorrow we dive into a brand new year, but TODAY we enjoy a brand new installment of "DC All Access"! In our final episode of 2013, Jim Lee and Scott Snyder discuss what's coming in Superman Unchained, while Vertigo Executive Editor Shelly Bond gives us an early look at the eagerly awaited Dead Boy Detectives. Also, Tom Taylor shares what's in store for the second year of the digital first Injustice: Gods Among Us comic, we embarrass ourselves with some DC All Access bloopers, and members of the DC team share their New Year's resolutions.
