Meet the DC Fifty-Too!

Some of you have already come across a fun new blogspot, which offers and ALTERNATIVE new titles from DC which they would like to see..

Welcome to the DC Fifty-Too, a blog curated by cartoonist Jon Morris.



First up, more Katie Cook cuteness



I already want to see this is a mini-series!

Then, a relaunch of a Jack Kirby classic character by Robert Wilson IV



Why yes, he is a cute blond heroic type who goes around in nothing more than cropped jeans and accompanied by a 7-foot tiger man.... Wanna make something of it?

Let me say here and now that I LOVE that Robin costume... designed by Tim Seeley (current writer of Witchblade)



And this looks like it could be oodles of fun too, from Mike Horton (And I want the guy on the right's T shirt!



Mike says: Blue Beetle is my favorite DC character. Probably my favorite comic book character in general. I had a Ted Kord: Year One mini in development for like a week a few years ago and the cover concept for my Fifty Two cover comes from an pitch I had in with J. Torres around 2004 or so. The idea being that Dan Garrett's long lost grandson would claim the Blue Beetle legacy. The original pitch called for him to be trained by Booster and Beetle in a "My Two Dads" situation. Since then, Ted died and Booster became a full on time traveller. Jaime Reyes was also introduced and I loved him. So I just retooled the idea to make for a team-up type story. The talented Zac Atkinson (www.evilbyme.com) colored it for me. I hope you like it!


I strongly urge you to visit the Fifty-Too site, as there are many more samples in there from different genres (WWII Liberty Belle headlining her own series for one) and given it's only a week old I'm sure there's more goodness to come! :)

And for legality, from the most recent and final JLA, Dick and Donna discuss their JLA adventures, with Dick seeming to be channelling James Robinson, and Donna perhaps explaining her absence in the new DCU. Though I'm not sure what's up with her face there, it doesn't look much like how I think of Donna.

More to the point, it's like Calvin & Hobbes meets Planet of the Apes.

Which is just awesome. =D

Aww, who's a cute widdle rage kitty?

Not wild about Robin, but I'd unreservedly love Donna's outfit if I could figure out what was supposed to be keeping her sock/leggings things up.

sock/leggings things

Leg warmers? :p It'd explain how they stay up (i.e. very, very haphazardly) and they'd even be functional.

At least in Japan you can buy such things as "sock glue" designed to keep socks and stockings in the right position.

boy, the way Robinson's taking this reboot is really kind of obnoxious

I'd get behind that Blue Beetle/s title if it were Jaime and Dani Garrett. Bickering! Action! Ritalin!

[personal profile] shanejayell 2011-08-21 20:30 (UTC)(link)
I was gonna comment on that too. I would love a Danni Garrett series, possibly with her being more high tech than actiony.

Ruffles and Pinky-poo NEED their own series. Like, YESTERDAY.

Fav covers. Teen Titans. That Robin suit and Speedy's outfit look pretty awesome. Albeit Wonder Girl's...yea that doesn't look right. Also Blue Beetles.

You know, I wouldn't mind the New Blue Beetle if the new kid ends up being like the Booster Gold to Jamie's Blue Beetle
The hijinks almost write themselves.

"My two dads"
WHY COULDN'T WE HAVE THAT, DC?

I think what gets me the most is the "Rage - Hate - Blood - Cuddles" on the Rage Kitty cover.
They're all great concepts and I would love to read them.

I don't understand Donna's costume either, but that doesn't stop me liking it way more than any other costume I've seen her in.
