Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The New 52 Flash Legacy Part 3

Quick Flash recap. First we had Jay Garrick. Then we had a reboot in 1956 that introduced Barry Allen, said to live on a parallel Earth. Then a reboot in 1986 made Barry’s sidekick the new Flash and also altered history so Jay now lived on the same earth. In 2011, DC had another company-wide reboot in which all comic titles were cancelled and 52 new titles were released. In the New 52, Jay Garrick and Barry Allen once again live on separate Earths and Kid Flash is a very different character. Let’s get to it!

Wonder Woman vs. Parademons in this Justice League: War Clip

DC’s upcoming animated feature Justice League: War is based on the Geoff Johns and Jim Lee story from the New 52 and the newest clip from it features Wonder Woman fighting some Parademons. However you may feel about the storyline, the video above is… not exactly promising. Sure, it’s nice to see Wonder Woman kicking ass, but the random costume that doesn’t match anything she’s ever worn before and the fairly wooden voice acting doesn’t exactly bode well for the film. Thoughts? Opinions? Fire away!

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

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.

DC Digital Comics Will Not Be Exclusive To One E-Reader

DC Comics made a few people angry recently when they decided to make an exclusive deal with Amazon for over 100 of their digital comics to be available on the new Kindle Fire. Barnes & Noble notably took offense to such a decision and pulled DC graphic novels from their physical store shelves. Books-a-Million followed soon after. Well now it seems as if the publisher is backtracking a bit to quell this particular fire. They’ve told the New York Times the exclusivity is not quite as exclusive as they first claimed.

Wonder Woman Gets Brand New Origin Story At DC (Spoilers)

The spoilers won’t come until after the jump but you’re probably going to have a tough time steering clear of this one. Why? The big reveal doesn’t happen in Wonder Woman #2, out October 19th, it comes a whole month later in Wonder Woman #3, being released November 16th. Today, the DC Source Blog and the NY Post revealed that in Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang’s relaunched Wonder Woman title, the most famous Amazon would be receiving a new origin story. 



New 52 in Review: Week 1

Christopher Holden kicks of a series reviewing the New 52 with…


“Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.” This is the depiction of Superman generations grew up with during the Golden age of comics and through Max Fleischer cartoons. In Action Comics #1, Grant Morrison is making that Superman canon again.

Jim Lee Says Justice League #1 Is “Setting Records” Digitally… but Won’t Quote Actual Records

It’s also setting records digitally. I can’t give numbers, but on the first day it set a record for us.

So sayeth Jim Lee, Co-Publisher of DC Comics and illustrator of Justice League #1, in an interview with Salon. Actual numbers would, indeed, be quite the jumping off point for a great deal of analysis, and could even say quite a lot about the future of digital distribution. Lets take a moment and look at all the ways having actual numbers on the reboot’s sales might turn out: Could DC have sold more digital copies than hard copies of Justice League? Would we see digital numbers fall over time, as newer readers entranced by the reboot’s publicity either lose interest or move to buying from comics stores just like everybody keeps hoping they will? Would we see digital numbers grow over time, as DCnU titles reach the one-month/dollar-cheaper mark?
