DC Universe Rebirth #1



"If anyone wants to check out comics, wants to check out DC Universe Rebirth #1 and doesn’t like it, they can mail it to Warner Bros., to me, and I will send them a check, I literally will, for both postage and for the book. I will buy all these books back because I believe in this issue a lot. I think it’ll do very well. I hope it does well. But I seriously will, I’ll buy back this book." - Geoff Johns

"We're exploring a very big theme in that book. That theme is the power of optimism and the power of hope and how no matter what you do it will shine through if you try and help it shine through." - Geoff Johns

Miss Fury #1




"Pulp characters are irresistible for a lot of us, and I think part of the reason is the romance inherent to their origins. They sprang from mass-market entertainment, but their creators were often (not always, of course, but enough of the time for it to matter) reaching for something more lasting and meaningful. The result is fast-paced, action-filled stories with transcendent flashes of cultural commentary, interesting ideas, and ambiguous heroics that highlight the nature of the human condition. As a writer of comics and genre fiction I love this about them, and have found a lot of inspiration in their pages."

Slayground takes place in winter.

That's the case for both the Richard Stark novel and the Darwyn Cooke adaptation.

The snow's an absence of color; things like the opening, the criminal Parker's armored car heist, stand out against it.

There's him and his bombing the car, getting the cash, and getting out.

And then there's the getaway driver turning a right so hard he turns them over.

Up and over. )

"When we do big events like this, we usually employ one writer and one artist. However, this story is so huge – it cuts across the entire Marvel Universe – we thought it would benefit from additional brainpower. So, we tapped five of our most popular writers (Brian Bendis, Jason Aaron, Matt Fraction, Jonathan Hickman and Ed Brubaker) and three of our most popular artists (John Romita Jr., Olivier Coipel and Adam Kubert) to do this story." - Axel Alonso

Storytellers: Jason Aaron, Brian Michael Bendis, Ed Brubaker, Jonthan Hickman, and Matt Fraction
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: John Romita Jr.
Inker: Scott Hanna
Colorist: Laura Martin

Harley offers Joker's Daughter sound advice, while beating her up

From the time she was reintroduced, comics fans, except for those that actually like Duella (Believe it or not, there are some), had wanted Harley to beat her up. It finally happened in New Suicide Squad #3.

The art wasn't good, but the punchline made it worth it.

Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur 6: "BFF Part 6: Eureka!"



"I don't want to say the Inhuman angle was 'forced' on us, but kinda sorta, so in a lot of ways, Lunella's wanting to avoid becoming Inhuman reflected our personal feelings about that story aspect! . . . In truth, the Inhuman angle became very interesting, creatively, as I think the story proved..." - Brandon Montclare

A Night of Thousand of Dreams (Night Story 5)

A Night of Thousand of Dreams is a retelling of the Arabians Night. (NOTE: This a manwha, not a manga. The reading is the same of western comics.)

Some time ago, the Sultan Shariar was cheated by his wife and went full "to execute wives just after the wedding night" (how we'll see, the real reason was a childhood trauma awakened by the adultery). To save her sister's life, the scholar Sehara faked to be her to infiltrate to Sultan palace. Thanks his stories, he is in able to save himself becoming the court poet.

The Night Story 5 is "Socrates in love".

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like.

Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves
