From The New York Times

The comic book community is coming together to help the victims of the Orlando shooting. In December, DC Comics and IDW Publishing will publish “Love Is Love,” a 144-page comic book whose proceeds will benefit Equality Florida and its fund for those affected by the June 12 attack at the Pulse nightclub in Florida.

Rafael Albuquerque provides this pinup.

Josh Green: Let’s talk about Kate Spencer for a moment. What is it about her character that distinguishes her from most other heroes in comics?

Marc Andreyko: Her acceptance that sometimes the legal system fails and that there are bad-guys out there who don’t deserve to live. Often it seems indulgent, at best, and incompetent, at worst, when these heroes continually catch and send to the looney bin or prison, villains who only want to kill. They’re not gonna get better, so why risk them escaping? Again. And again.

Following "Batman '66", DC's next Digital First title, is the Lynda Carter inspired "Wonder Woman '77"

Now it has to be said that, though Batman 66 set it's own surreal tone, Wonder Woman 77 was more of a product of the late 1970's... Disco... a certain post Bicentennial afterglow of patriotic fervour and the pesky, pesky Russians....

So what could be more natural... )

News from NYCC

Since Batman 66 has been doing quite well, it seems only natural that for their next title, DC Digital are producing one based on TV's live-action Wonder Woman!

And the first cover art from Nicola Scott is a thing of genuine beauty!

She's a wonder, Wonder Woman! )

A few days ago I posted from issue #622, which was an Invaders-heavy issue. Today I will post from the latest issue, which is much darker.

Four pages from Captain America & Bucky #623 )

From Captain America & Bucky #623, written by Ed Brubaker and Marc Andreyko, pencils by Chris Samnee, colors by Bettie Breitweiser.

So for my $2.99 this is just about the best thing Marvel has going. I thought I'd post some scenes from last month's issue— #623 came out this week, but I am still putting my thoughts together about that.

Anyway, this the book that they turned Captain America into when they killed him off in Fear Itself. Basically, it charts the coming of age of Bucky Barnes in self contained single issue installments. Ed Brubaker and Marc Andreyko on words, Chris Samnee on pencils, Bettie Breitweiser on colors, Namor McKenzie on burn.

About five pages from Captain America & Bucky #622 )

So seriously, what the hell has DC been doing with Two-Face for the past year and a half?

I ask because I wanted to review the final part of the first-ever Two-Face solo story wrapped up in Batman: Streets of Gotham, which came out today. But I realized that such a review was impossible without looking into the events that brought the character to this point, as written by Tony Daniel, Judd Winick, and Marc Andreyko, neither of whom seemed to read the other's stories and utterly ignored continuity when it came to Two-Face.

Has anyone else noticed this? Has anyone else been confused?

Let's take a blow-by-blow look at Two-Face over the past year and a half, and you let me know if this makes any sense, or if I'm missing out on some crucial detail somewhere along the way. Please, seriously, help me out here. I feel like no one else is even noticing these glaring inconsistencies.

And while I'm at it, I'd like to rant a bit about Andreyko's Manhunter co-feature from Streets of Gotham. Hope you don't mind.

How Harvey's been (mis?)used ever since the events of BATMAN R.I.P.... )



Is this all due to some editorial clusterfuck, ala Countdown, Death of the New Gods, and Final Crisis all contradicting one another in various ways? And unlike that clusterfuck, no one else seems to be noticing THIS clusterfuck!

And then there's the actual Two-Face solo story by Ivan Brandon, the one that just today wrapped up in Streets of Gotham. That one seems to be another clusterfuck for some reason, not to mention the story itself is frustrating in its own ways. But I'll address all that in my next post, when I tackle Two-Face: The Long Way Down heads-on. Hopefully no one else will post scans of it in the meantime.
