    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    DC Comics' PR has taken multiple hits this week, and this weekend is a major convention, so you know what that means: DC higher ups giving unsatisfying responses to fan outcry at Baltimore Comic Con. Specifically, we're talking about Dan DiDio saying that superheroes should never have happy personal lives, Aquaman and Mera aren't married, and that a new writer will be taking over Batwoman with issue #25.

  6. Syfy’s Face Off Pairs DC Comic Artists With Contestants This Season

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Syfy's Face Off is one of my favorite shows. I've always been interested in movie makeup but didn't have the skill to make it a career plus, the show isn't overly dramatized like most reality TV these days. They premiered the fourth season last night and while I've yet to watch the episode, we've just found out some people we're very familiar with will be making a guest appearance in a few weeks - employees of DC Comics. Find out if your favorite creator will be giving their artistic input to the contestants after the cut.

  8. Nicola Scott Joins DC’s New 52 As Superman Artist

    Suddenly

    DC came under fire at this year's San Diego Comic-Con for having only two female creators on board for their big relaunch. In the panel where the numbers where brought to their attention, co-publisher Dan DiDio asked the audience for specific names they'd like to see. Secret Six, Wonder Woman and Teen Titan artist Nicola Scott was one of those names and it seems DC listened. Scott has just been announced as a fill-in artist on Superman

  10. Infinitely Regressing Crisis: Dan DiDio Says All Crisis Stories Are No Longer Canon

    Great Hera!

    So, one of the many things that followers of DC comics wondered about feverishly during the lead up to the New 52 is what parts of the DC Universe would remain canon, and we were told that Infinite Crisis and its precursors would remain canonical... despite the modern DC timeline being shortened from about ten or fifteen years to five. This leaves a lot of stuff that has to happen in a very short time, and today somebody asked Dan DiDio specifically about those Crisis events on his Facebook page, where he said:
    Brace yourself, but after further review, there have been no Crisis events in the New DCU.
    But we thought that those of you who are not scholars of the DC universe and it's twisting labyrinthine ways might not understand what this means exactly, and we have prepared a number of similes to help you out. Probably at least one of them will make sense to you.

  12. Renee Montoya Is Probably Not the Question in the DCnU

    Today in Depressing

    Take a deep breath and say goodbye to one of the DC Universe's most kickass lesbian superheroes. Dan DiDio has been answering fan questions about the reboot lately on Facebook, and according DC Women Kicking Ass, finally addressed the question: "Is Renee Montoya still the Question and is Vic Sage still dead?" His response was:
    Renee will be seen as a member of the Gotham City Police Force.

    Things We Saw Today

    This is the work of Mari Kasurinen, who fashions MLP dolls, "gender free objects made of plastic and fake hair," into lots of lovely things. (Neatorama) Service Update: If you experience an interruption in your regular The Mary Sue service this weekend, it is because the editors of the site live in the path of Hurricane Irene, and we might be without power. In fact, Susana's apartment building is part of the first mandatory evacuation in New York City history, so it's an honor to be part of such a historical event. We'll try to keep the hot tap of internet fandom running for you to the best of our ability.

  15. Dan DiDio On Gay Characters in the DCnU: Renee Montoya Possibly Confirmed as The Question?

    Great Hera!

    The Advocate posted their interview with DC Comics Senior VP/Executive Editor, Co-publisher and writer Dan DiDio yesterday, and it's a trove of tidbits for anyone who is interested in the presence and future of gay characters in the upcoming reboot. And so, if you can get past the Advocate referring to Apollo, Midnighter, the Question, Voodoo, and the current Batwoman as characters that are being introduced in the relaunch, despite their existence as canonically gay characters for about half a decade even at their youngest. To his credit, DiDio points out at every turn that the characters he's being asked about are pretty solidly established already.

  16. Batwoman #1 Has A Publication Date Again

    Good News Everyone!

    For almost a month, the Batwoman ongoing series has been in publishing limbo: it was announced a year ago, it had been teased last November and previewed again last month, it had been delayed once already... and then it was pulled from future shelves without so much as an explanation or a replacement date until now. Well, now we have a month: September, as mentioned by Amy Reeder, one of the artists working on the series, at WonderCon this weekend. As for exactly why the book has been delayed nine months past its original pub date, DC is still leaving that up to speculation.

  17. DC Comics Shakes Up Management; “High Five” Take the Helm

    What happens when I sit at home and play WoW all day, and forget to pick up my comics? I miss stuff like major changes in the running of the company that I buy most of my comics from. (Strategically announced on the day of the week furthest from New Comic Day? We wonder.)

    This Thursday saw major upheaval in the governance of DC Comics. Until now, the company was headed up by Paul Levitz, in the position of President and Publisher. According to an announcement made on the The Source, the official DC Universe blog, Levitz is leaving the positions, and will be replaced by six people. Namely, Co-Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio, Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, Executive VP of Sales, Marketing, and Business Development John Rood, and Executive VP of Finance and Administration Patrick Caldon. These so-called "High Five" will report directly to DC Entertainment's President, Diane Nelson.

    A rundown of the artists on DC's new executive management team after the jump.
