Thanksgiving’s just a couple days away, but we already know what we’re thankful for—all of the amazing fans who have turned “DC All Access” into a success! So to thank you, we present our special Thanksgiving week episode! In this installment, we give you an early look at "Initiation," the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins DLC. Then Blair gets a tour of the highly restricted DC Library Archive in New York, Tiffany talks to Bob Bretall of ComicSpectrum.com, owner of one of the world's biggest comic collections and we give away a New 52 Starter Pack. Plus, a look at "Spy vs.
It’s Thanksgiving week here in the States, and we can’t wait to carve into the turkey and cut off a slice of delicious pumpkin pie. Or two. Or maybe three. (Hey, Thanksgiving only comes once a year, okay?! Yeesh!) But before we do that, we’ll be dropping in to the local comic shop and bidding a fond farewell to Geoff Johns as he departs Atlantis in AQUAMAN #26, his final issue as series writer.
What do you think of when you think of Aquaman? What words come to mind? If they’re anything close to “silly,” “inconsequential” or “B-level,” then you haven’t been reading Aquaman’s ongoing comic. At least not since Geoff Johns started writing it.
While Johns may not have the history with the character that he had with Green Lantern, his contribution to Aquaman is no less significant. Of course, to fully understand it, it helps to revisit what Johns has done with Arthur Curry since taking over as writer with Aquaman’s relaunch as part of The New 52.
Another Tuesday, another awesome new episode of DC All Access! This week, DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns talks to us about the five new DC TV shows that are currently in development. Plus, we uncover the secrets to be found in the mysterious new Batman Eternal illustration released earlier today, villain proof our homes with the help of Vine sensation BatDad, and give away some Aquaman hardcovers signed by Johns.
When it comes to creating unforgettable comic books, having a great artist as well as an amazing writer sort of comes part-and-parcel with the package. You know, cause of the whole graphic storytelling thing. It's, like, literally one-half of the phrase.
A skilled artist not only creates eye-popping imagery but also uses that imagery to bring the story to life through panel-to-panel sequential storytelling. It's a difficult skill to master, but if skills were hit points, artist Ivan Reis might as well be a Level 99 Kryptonian Flame Dragon.
