Black Hole #1



"Black Hole is about a disease that affects teenagers, and about the lives of those particular characters. In some way, the other elements are incidental. I mean, of course it plays an important role, but it’s not just about, you know, an STD that deforms teenagers. That’s not what the story is about. The story is about characters who are struggling with their adolescence and finding their way through that portion of their life." -- Charles Burns

NS: DC Universe Comics could anchor SoHo steakhouse

Immersive Comic Book Restaurant Wants to Bring Batman to Soho


A restaurant based on the DC comic book universe is slated to open in the heart of London. Mash Steakhouse, at 77 Brewer Street, will be redeveloped into a restaurant “rooted within the DC Multiverse,” if planning documents submitted to the Soho Society are approved.

A design and access statement says:

The proposed design continues the use of the space as a high-end restaurant. The restaurant will be rooted within the DC Multiverse, taking visitors on a culinary adventure through the many fictional Universes famous for their superhero residents such as Batman, Superman and Wonderwoman ... it has the intention to invite guests to experience the DC Universe without breaking the fourth wall- the imaginary wall that separates the audience from the performance.

The main dining room will be divided into five spaces: “ a lounge Bar (Pennyworth’s) and a dining area with entertainment- reminiscent of the 1930s era (Iceberg Lounge). The North Nave - a fine dining experience (Dichotomy Fine Dining) and the South Nave (an Immersive Dining Experience). It will be known, collectively, as DC World, with Arkham — the fictional psychiatric hospital most prominent in Batman stories — to the back of the building. Overall, the restaurant will fit 317 covers.

Solicit for Age of X-Man: The Amazing Nightcrawler #4

You know how at the end of every "event", everything goes back to the way it was, but there's ONE thing which remains leftover?

"Necrosha" restored Doug Ramsey to life and unlike all the other reanimated corpses, stayed alive. (Yay!)

"Age of Apocalypse" gave us X-Man and... ummm... Holocaust and err.... Sugar Man! (Yay?)

"Deadly Genesis"gave us Vulcan... which really isn't helping my case is it... but never mind.

So PLEASE "Age of X-Man", if you have to keep one thing, please let it be this #4 reveals that....

To the fuzzy elf... A DAUGHTER )

Last Knight on Earth: Snyder's final Batman story

"Batman suddenly wakes up and he’s... young. But he wakes up in this post-apocalyptic wasteland, crawling out of the sand in this Gotham City that’s been ruined. He’s got the Joker’s head chained to his belt, but it’s alive and like, ‘You gotta move, kid!’ It’s got old Wonder Woman, Baby Superman—it’s like my Lone Wolf and Cub Batman story." -- Scott Snyder
