New DC Announcements – War Stories, Westerns, and Wildstorms

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

The next round of DC re-launch books made the rounds today on the DC Source blog. The focus today seems to be not only on their western and war line, but also their Wildstorm imprint that had been folded into the DCU last December. I can’t say that I’m particularly excited for a lot of these, but there were a couple that will be on the pull list:


All-Star Western #1 written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray and art by Moritat
It’s a shame if you missed the entire Jonah Hex run Palmiotti and Gray embarked on. Incredible one-off stories that proved a western book could work in the comics market. Now’s your chance to start fresh when Hex enters 19th century Gotham City and gets enlisted by Amadeus Arkham to take out a serial killer. DC is really doing a great job exploring the extensive history Gotham has.


Deathstroke #1 written by Kyle Higgins and art by Joe Bennett and Art Thibert
I’ve been Deathstroke’s fan since the Identity Crisis series and always up for more. If Higgins can do justice to his character just like Cornell did with Luthor in Action Comics, this will be something good.


Stormwatch #1 written by Paul Cornell and art by Miguel Sipulveda
The first signs of Wildstorm making an impact on the DCU show here. I’ll admit to not knowing much about the Authority during their apex, but this is as good of a time as any to catch up on the hype.

CBF Quick Picks #20: DC Rules The Universe

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

There was too much going on in DC land to limit this to one or two books to Quick Picks this week. As much as Return of Bruce Wayne deserved a good amount of hype, I was thoroughly impressed by a bunch of DC offerings. DC is hot right now and I’m glad they’re continuing to build other franchises beyond the Batman and Green Lantern names.

This is not to say that Marvel didn’t have a good week too – just that DC did things one better. Marvel wrapped up Siege and officially began their march into Heroic Age. It was nice that they finally wrapped up all those threads, but my review here on iFanboy can give you some insight as to why I felt it could have done a whole lot more.
