New 52

  1. DC Comics Cancels 13 Series (Including Batwoman) Just as Convergence Event Ramps Up… Coincidence?

    hush the picture is relevant shhhhh

    It's December and we've just started hearing about what comics are going to be coming out in May, because that's how comics work. And DC's slate of comics for May reveals one of their biggest waves of cancellations since the start of the New 52... just as they launch into a multiverse-spanning event story line. Hmmmmmmmm.

  2. Visual Representation: Trans Characters In Comics

    When there was a changing of the creative team in Batgirl earlier this year, many readers asked, “What will happen to Alysia?” Batgirl's roommate, created by Gail Simone, made headlines across the internet when she confided to her Bat-roomie that she was trans. Discussions sparked around how the depiction of Alysia would represent trans people: Would Alysia become a trope and fall victim to the ways that trans women have been previously characterized in media?

  3. [UPDATED] Why is Rape in Batwoman More Interesting Than Marriage to DC Comics?

    DC Comics' Batwoman title has made waves once again, but probably now how they intended.

  4. The New Creative Team On New 52 Wonder Woman Turns The Comic Into An Utter (Sexist) Disappointment

    She carries around a teddy bear for comfort. So.

    For a long, long time I’ve been able to rely on each successive issue of Wonder Woman to be an enjoyable read. But, as even a demi-god must learn, all things must come to an end.

  5. Wonder Woman’s New 52 Origin Should Not Be Used in Film (or At All)

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice producer Charles Roven says they'll be using Wonder Woman's DC Comics' "New 52" reboot origin rather than the story imagined by her original writer and creator William Moulton Marston. I think using the New 52 origin in general, much less in these films, is a mistake which diminishes the character and goes against why she was created in the first place.

  6. DC Reveals Convergence Titles Including Gail Simone on Oracle, Greg Rucka on Renee Montoya, and Lots More

    And Ryan Choi, and Wally West, and Lois and Clark are married, and...

    I'm as cynical as any long-time comics fan can be, DC Comics. So when you announce the return of one of my favorite comics writers, to one of my very favorite comics characters, I have only two things to say to you.

    I am only human. And good job.

  7. DC Comics Announces Convergence, a Crossover Event to Bring the Multiverse Back to the New 52

    Well, at least it's not Superboy punching the spacetime continuum.

    DC's next big event is called Convergence, and although it'll kick off on April 1st, 2015, they assure you that it is no joke.

  8. Dawn of Justice Producer Confirms Wonder Woman Will Have New 52 Origin Story

    She laughs so she does not cry.

    Gah, Hera: maybe it was self-evident that Zack Snyder wouldn't be able to handle Wonder Woman's Zeus-less origin story, but, fool that I am, this still stings.

  9. Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – Answering the Question

    Missing you, Renee Montoya.

    There is a faceless vigilante who has stalked comics since the late 1960s. They started with Vic Sage and continued with Renee Montoya, a Gotham City detective who marveled at superheroes and then became one herself. Both of them, when wearing a faceless mask and a fedora, were called the Question. Who are they, and what is their connection to Watchmen, a near-forgotten Batman villain, and a strange man called Mr. A? Glad you asked. Read on!

  10. The Star Wars Expanded Universe is Dead, Long Live the Star Wars Expanded Universe

    I will make it legal!

    So Disney has decided that they're going to nuke most of the previously established Star Wars canon. I think this is as good a reason as any to finally bury the destructive concept of canon in fictional works. Note that this does not mean that I am against stories in continuity with each other, that's not my position at all. I love continuity, and the story options that it enables. But even as I enjoy continuity, I don't see why we should be judging stories as more or less significant than another on any basis but their merits. And that's all canon does, it arbitrarily privileges some continuities over others. Why should we recognize that kind of a distinction? Why should we give a soulless corporate entity that kind of power over our culture? Because that's what we're really talking about here.
