DC Week-In-Review: April 13

DC Week-In-Review: April 13

By Tim Beedle Friday, April 13th, 2012

It’s been a week of conventions, collectibles and this thing called The Culling here on DCComics.com. And while you should keep an eye on the website all weekend long for exclusive C2E2 CON AWAY FROM CON coverage, there was plenty of news to break before we even left for Chicago. Let’s take a look at some of it, shall we?


Here’s what happened on the DC Comics website this week…


HE HAS THE POWER! And a new comic book. We started things off by announcing a new HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE® series that will be kicking off in July.


After that we unveiled this week’s solicits for all of the various DC groups: Justice League, Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, The Dark, The Edge, Young Justice, Before Watchmen and Beyond The New 52.


The just-announced NATIONAL COMICS promises to shine the proverbial spotlight on some of the more unique characters from deep within the DC pantheon. It’s coming in July.


What is The Culling? It’s a mysterious, game-changing storyline taking place in the pages of SUPERBOY, TEEN TITANS and THE RAVAGERS, and it’s got everyone talking. See what Scott Lobdell, Tom DeFalco, Brian Cunningham, Chris Conroy, Howard Mackie and Ian Church had to say about it.


On Wednesday we broke the news that DC Direct is now DC Collectibles. (Though maybe “break” isn’t the right word to use when talking about collectibles.)


And finally, we ended our week on the cool, crisp streets of Chicago for the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. We counted down the days leading up to it with three survival tips before posting our panel schedule on Thursday. But those were mere appetizers for the main course that we’ll be serving up all weekend long: DC’s exclusive C2E2 CON AWAY FROM CON coverage.


From Eternia to Chicago… Not a bad week! That’s it for now, but we hope to see some of you at C2E2, and every one of you back here in seven days for another Week-In-Review.
