"For a few years in his early 20s, Nick Wilson had super powers and all the acclaim associated with them. When those powers vanished, so did his fame, sending him from national hero to late-night punchline. By the time we pick up his story, he is not yet 30 and barely an answer in a trivia contest. Faced with a life in a rear-view mirror full of lost powers, faded glory, former enemies, ex-girlfriends, and forgotten grudges, Nick struggles to figure out who he is today. Packing on an extra 20 pounds and peering through a medicinal marijuana haze, he is trying to build a future when all that’s left is just a man who hasn’t been super for a very long time."

"Writer/creators Eddie Gorodetsky and Marc Andreyko have teamed with artist Stephen Sadowski to pose the question most caped crusaders never have to answer: ‘Now what?’ The world's first real super hero Nick Wilson was at the start of a glorious career which ended faster than a speeding bullet. Now not yet thirty, he has to face his uncertain future without powers, without the costume, and with very few options other than dealing with his non-super life one day at a time. The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson is a sometimes funny, always touching parable about the pitfalls of early success, cloaked in the tale of a one-time hero who believes his best days are behind him."

- Paul Dini

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... )
