Tuesday Roundup: October 16th

Everyone has their favorites in comics. Favorite characters. Favorite writers. Favorite artists. But every now and then, it’s fun, refreshing and absolutely essential to welcome someone new to the fold. After all, all of your favorites were once brand new themselves.

Is it possible to be both giddy and absolutely terrified at the same time? Well, if the start of this week has taught us anything, it would have to be that the answer to that question is yes. There’s no other way to describe how we’re feeling about the start of “Death of the Family” this week. The Joker returns to Gotham and makes his DC COMICS – THE NEW 52 debut in what’s looking to be one of the most terrifying storylines to hit the pages of Batman in ages. And talk about impact! When a villain like the Joker returns, he doesn’t just affect one hero. Not with his history.

Usually when there’s talk of new blood in Gotham, it’s time for Gordon to light the bat-signal. But there’s no cause for alarm this week. In fact, there’s reason for celebration as the new Detective Comics creative team makes its eagerly anticipated debut. Writer John Layman and artist Jason Fabok launch a brand new, eight-issue story arc with Wednesday’s DETECTIVE COMICS #13, and you can take your first look at it below (we think “hard-hitting” is an apt description of it).

Regardless of which DC comics are your favorites, it’s been a great month. Between gaining some important insight into your favorite characters’ histories and meeting some intriguing new heroes in debuting titles like Sword of Sorcery, Team 7 and The Phantom Stranger, there’s been a lot to celebrate throughout Zero Month. But before we shut the door on this exciting month-long event and begin the discussions and debates on which zero issues were our favorites, we have one more exciting week to get through.

With a single word, young Billy Batson gains the power of the gods and becomes the magical superhero known as…let’s say it together now…SHAZAM! And that’s fitting because it would take the strength of Hercules to keep us out of our local comic shop this Wednesday with some of the great comics hitting stands.

Zero month is all about going back to the beginning for DC COMICS – THE NEW 52. However, while most of them will be returning to the present day next month, there’s one brand new monthly title that will stay in the past. Team 7 is one of the latest titles to join DC Comics – The New 52, and while it has strong links to current titles like Justice League, Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, Grifter and Deathstroke, it’s set five years in the past when super-powered heroes like Superman were first arriving on the scene. So what does that mean?

Labor Day was yesterday, which means we’ve officially said sayonara to summer. Sniff… We’re sad to see it go, too. But don’t fret, there’s a lot of good stuff just on the horizon for comic book fans, after all, tomorrow marks the start of Zero Month here at DC. (Well, if you want to get technical, last Saturday was September 1st, so we suppose THAT was the start…but you get the point.) We’re getting things going in a big way with zero issues for Green Lantern, Detective Comics, Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Dial H and more!

What comes around just once a year, stuffed full of goodies for fans the world over?

 

No, it’s not Santa’s bag we’re talking about here, it’s DC’s new set of Annuals—those exciting, extraordinary, extra-sized issues of your favorite DC COMICS – THE NEW 52 titles that come out once per year. And it just so happens that for Green Lantern, Superman, Detective Comics, The Flash and Justice League International, that day is this Wednesday. Tomorrow.

As far as we know, we don’t have any vampires working at DC (though it’s not something we screen for when interviewing prospects – we ARE an equal opportunity employer, after all!). But even if we don’t personally know any nosferatu, it’s pretty safe to assume that life as a vampire is tough. It certainly has been for Andrew Bennett. After a year of headlining DC COMICS – THE NEW 52’s I,Vampire, poor Andrew has gone through a very bad breakup, a vampire uprising, a run-in with Batman, a skirmish with an army of vampire-hunting zombies and, oh yes, death and rebirth.

Tuesday Roundup: August 14th

Before Watchmen has been going strong for over two months now, so it’s pretty easy to overlook the fact that two of our most anticipated Before Watchmen comics have yet to make their debut. We’ll get a look at the first of these tomorrow when BEFORE WATCHMEN: RORSCHACH #1 finally rears its masked head. Reuniting the acclaimed team of Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo (LUTHOR, JOKER), Rorschach promises to be four issues of tense drama and over-the-top street justice featuring one of the most popular and memorable characters from the Watchmen graphic novel.
