Presumably after the fun and games of "X-Men: Disassembled" is over and done with it's time for an event!

And for that we need a dynamic, exciting, hot mutant property to build the event around.

Sadly, since Doug Ramsey is busy over in Daredevil right now, we're getting an event focussing on the one (Well, there's sort of two of him), the only (not counting alternate universes and 'What if..?'s')...

In recent years we've had a spate of 80's toy related comic book launches.

Now, I'm not counting Transformers and GI Joe as they never really felt like they went away, but in recent years we've had a number of toy related titles ranging from the superb (Jem) to the middling (Rom) and the rather disappointing (Visionaries)

We've also see TV reboot everything from He-Man (in 2003 I grant you, but it was good), Thundercats (The terrific 2011 series and the 2018 one which might be a bit more questionable), My Little Pony (managing to get into it's 8th season and a theatrical movie) and Duck Tales (sublime).

However, I think it's safe to say I did not expect this.

Author Benjamin Percy is starting his run as writer on Nightwing in May, joined by new artist Chris Mooneyham. There's an article up about it at Entertainment Weekly



"The best way to approach Nightwing is as a high-octane, adrenaline-fueled mystery and adventure.

Consider how Gotham and Blüdhaven are shadow-soaked, crime-ridden environments. One of the things I love about Nightwing is his irrepressible optimism. This joy—a love of the game, a showman’s theatricality—is tonally essential to my approach. I see it as a necessary counterweight to material that might otherwise feel oppressively grim. In this way, Grayson really captures the hopeful maxim that has defined the Rebirth era.

News from IGN about the post Metal events...

Possible spoilers for the end of "Metal" (I haven't been following it closely enough to judge what's already common knowledge, so just in case, thought I'd warn folks)

I've posted before from Visionaries, a sadly short lived 1980's toy line/cartoon and comic.

This weekend is "HasCon", the official convention of Hasbro toys, sort of alamganating every property they have and those included in their deal with IDW

So IDW has revealed images of their revamps of the line over at AVClub
