Some Marvel variant covers for Women's History Month in March

Since March is Women's History Month, Marvel are putting out a series of variant covers, all by female artists, and since they are not limited to drawing female characters, aside from being (IMHO) a much better idea than DC's "Cheescake covers" (We need to rely on Grayson covers for the "Beefcake" covers) some of them are just gorgeous!

Look at all the pretty )

DC making radical changes in June - The New 52 is over...

Much of the comic-sphere is abuzz with DC's announcement about what's coming in June after their "Convergence" event ends...

For one thing the "New 52" will no longer be used as a tagline or a concept. (After more than three years, that seems fair enough, it was hardly "New" to begin with... and also, they're down to 49 titles, so it wouldn't even be accurate.

A LOT of info there, and at least one cover scan that I think is worth discussion!

But then... I would! )

It's always nice to see a fight whose outcome doesn't feel like it was decided by fiat.

The one that ended X's Better Off Dead arc this August, between the book's titular protagonist and the evident major antagonist of the Dark Horse line it's a part of (Project Black Sky, which's basically several superhero books set in a shared universe that's like a less somber Planetary), was well done as a battle between someone with superpowers and someone without.

It'd begun in this August's issue #15, with X's crashing a meeting between the two men whose forces'd been at war with each other across the city of Arcadia: the astrologically fixated mobster Carmine Tango and the very wealthy foreigner Peter Winter. The latter'd just beaten the former, having gotten him to drink poisoned wine and induced his loyal second-in-command to turn traitor, and was about to learn everything he knew about X..

.. when in came the vigilante in question through the window of the restaurant they were in, sword in hand.

(Before I go any further, a heads up: there's some explicit violence under the cut.)

Well, sword in one hand and unfortunate henchman of Winter's in the other.. but that guy didn't even show up on the next page, so.. )

Justice League 3000 reveal - Ummm.... WHAT?

Spoilers for... well, the New52 DCU concept as a whole I guess...

I'm not even going to mention who is going to be showing up in JL3000 #12 in the tags, just to maximise the surprise.

Trust me, it's a weird one )
