Reasons to be scared in the DCU

Courtesy of ComicVine's preview of Teen Titans #1

A chill wind blows across the face of the Earth;

In Arkham, the Scarecrow wraps his arms around his legs and rocks backwards and forwards, mumbling consoling words to himself.

Sinestro shudders, even the vacuum of space could not cause the cold sensation running down his spine.

Even on the grim world of Apokalips, the mighty Darkseid raises his head and utters that rarest of sounds, a laugh (if a sound like slamming coffin lids down a mineshaft can be called a laugh), as he realises what has transpired on Earth.

What could cause such galactic levels of terror? )

Now we've got miniseries for Doctor's 9, 10, 11 and 12, it's time to go a little retro as Titan Comics are bringing out a minseries featuring perhaps the world's favourite Doctor, and definitely my favourite classic series companion.

This is the variant cover by Alice X. Zhang.

Alt history based on reality - SuffraJitsu

Well, it's not often I hear about new graphic novels from the BBC, but there you go.

"SuffraJitsu - Mrs Pankhursts's Amazons" is a three part graphic novel series from Jet City Comics which details an alternate history, with some fascinating roots in the real history of the British Women's Suffrage movement and includes one of the most remarkable women in it.

First the fact )
