Artists and retailers team up to celebrate DC Comics-The New 52
Can’t wait until next Wednesday? Check out some exclusive previews to get you through the weekend: BLASTR, part of the SyFy online network, has the first look at SUPERBOY #1 written by Scott Lobdell and drawn by RB Silva and Rob Lean. This preview answers the question, "Is SUPERBOY a science experiment gone wrong?"
I dunno how many of you have sisters, but when mine was a teenager, she was, as they say, hell on wheels. Always getting into trouble, always getting into fights (usually more with her friends than with her enemies), always managing to outthink authority figures (be they cops or parents), always hanging with a questionable crowd, always a new piercing or tattoo – just drama at every turn, and usually of her own making. Nowadays she’s a morally upright citizen. She’s got a dog and a cat, a boyfriend and she even just completed jury duty! But back then? Hell. On. Wheels.
A groundbreaking discovery from the Theban Hills in Egypt in 1915 leads Dr. Pavel to travel the world in the hopes of finding more to aid in his research. Now in Romania, vampire hunters Felicia Book and Cash McCogan meet up with Dr. Pavel and escape the catacombs beneath the Nazi castle with the rumored vampire cure, but will it work? AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST #4 by Scott Snyder and artist Sean Murphy hits stores Wednesday.
Last year I found myself editing a little bi-weekly called GENERATION LOST. When it landed in my lap, I was suddenly transported back to being an eight-year-old in an airport in Chicago when I was traveling on my own to see my dad in North Dakota. I had five bucks in my pocket and I picked up my first JLI (that’s JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL for you folks that aren’t in the know). I remember being like, “Holy cow! Comics are filled with action and comedy? No way!”
