  1. Gerry Conway Says DC Entertainment is Ripping Off Creators

    It's not like you don't have the money, DC.

    Whenever you see comic book characters leap off the page and into a new medium - like all the DC shows on television right now - you're probably thinking Wow! Whoever created these characters must be making BANK! Not necessarily. In fact, thanks to changes that happened once DC Comics became DC Entertainment, comic creators are making a lot less.

  3. Even DC President Diane Nelson Thinks Wonder Woman is “Tricky”

    If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

    Another day, another person in the entertainment industry saying that making a Wonder Woman movie would be "tricky." Except this time it's coming from Diane Nelson, President of DC Comics. I'll give Nelson some credit here: at least she seems to be saying that despite Wonder Woman's alleged "trickiness," she's got to be made a priority by DC and Warner Bros. for a film or television adaptation.

  4. Warner Bros. Is Working On Tons Of Comic Book Films Besides Justice League

    If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it

    A few days ago we were thrilled to report the news that Warner Bros. was jumping back into work on a Justice League film but a new report from Variety reminds us they have tons of comic properties lined up. Some of which we may have forgotten were happening. There's also a chance that director Christopher Nolan could play a part even after his Batman days are behind him.

  5. DC’s Own VP of Sales Talks the DC Comics Nielsen Survey and Why It Was Not “Representative”

    Consider the Following

    DC Comics' Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Business Development John Rood has given a very interesting interview to Publishers Weekly, regarding the results from the company's very first Nielsen survey of their readership late last year. In it, he admits, or perhaps clarifies, that the survey is not representative of DC's entire audience, and has some very interesting news about female readership as portrayed by the survey results. When the survey's results were announced last week, showing a dismal lack of brand-new readers, female readers, and young readers to the New 52, there was a lot more that we wanted to know, here at The Mary Sue. Things like the gender demographics from book to book or the gender demographics on digital might have been really interesting to draw conclusions from. The results released last week seemed like just the tip of the iceberg, and Rood reveals a bit more of it in the interview.

  8. 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.
