Good evening owls of /co/,
Ellis is done, but we're keeping going, time for Secret Invasion
sorry, last night I was all "is my Windows update done???" and didn't want to potentially brick the computer
's all good now
talk to me about solicits! the Marvel ones=seriously underwhelming
Also proof that there is no God: Booth is on Aquaman
call the JSA
small bits of hope, am I feeling them?
no, no actual hope
I see we have oversized #50s, then maybe shifts after them?
Abnett appears to be trying to continue the book Hawkgirl's on the goddamn cover again.
It hurts, but I'll support it if it's worth supporting.
Speaking of hurt (and bees), Deadpool is going to really dark places again. He's going to go after Sabertooth for his parents, instead of what actually happened. The 90s back-issue was perfect DugPo, so I'm interested.
I need to catch up on that run like woah
Gage is doing a pretty good Ellis, here
I let it run pretty long but then said FUCK THIS and reset it and it was fine, whew
>maybe shifts after them?
Some of them sounded like conclusions so I can see some creative team moving
If not after #50 then it'll probably be well into summer that we get anything. Cause you know 4+ DCYou books are gonna get cancelled in June (?).
right now we're in transition but we're heading straight into what Comrade called "Blunderbolts"
But don't let me prejudice anyone, we're in this together
No, Abnett is great, but Booth is...
>He's going to go after Sabertooth for his parents
Oh this is going to be interesting. As I recall Sabertooth's reaction to Deadpool's burning his parents house down was more or less "Dude..."
I haven't read much of his recent stuff IIRC, so I'm pretty agnostic
Oh, the upcoming isn't nearly as bad as that. That's a rancid turd.
there's some serious EDGE ahead, though
Nah, he's got a floor of like. 1.2 Jurgens. Basically, always readable with nothing to hate, sometimes better.
And then DnA is a totally different animal that shouldn't be rated on the Jurgens scale.
Yeah, I was suspecting he was on it, but good to hear
mainline book again when?
Not if they get Liew on a better title. This current one's alright, but when I think of Dr. Fate I think of the possibilities and what you can do with the identity crisis theme and striking balance between order and chaos, it could fill a void for more serious magick titles instead of being "relatable guy gets powers"
Fans of the Supergirl TV show will be happy to hear that they can see more heroic exploits of the Girl of Steel in DC’s new Digital First series called Adventures of Supergirl. Veteran Supergirl writer Sterling Gates will be penning the new title, which will be drawn by a cast of rotating artists including Bengal, Jonboy Meyers, Emanuela Lupacchino, and Emma Vieceli. Bengal will be penciling, inking, and coloring the first three chapters.
This 13-chapter, bi-weekly comic will release on Mondays, which just happens to be the same day the show airs on CBS. It won’t directly tie into the show, but will tell stories in that universe with Supergirl teaming with the DEO to protect National City while also working a job at CatCo as Kara Danvers. DC also told us that she will take on classic villains like Rampage, Vril Dox, and Psi.
Digital tie-in comics are nothing new for DC’s TV shows. Both Arrow and The Flash have ongoing digital titles that fill in the gaps before/after seasons, plus Smallville enjoyed a healthy run that continued the show after its TV series finale.
However, unlike those comics, Supergirl’s series will not be printed and shipped as a monthly comic. The title will instead be collected and printed as a graphic novel, skipping the floppies entirely.
Adventures of Supergirl will debut on January 25, 2016.
>I really really hope that they don't start calling Mera Aquawoman.
>mfw some poor damn fool calls her "Aquawife"
Her Majesty despises being referred to by silly codenames. It's really best not to insult her like that, lest she get.... upset.
>However, unlike those comics, Supergirl’s series will not be printed and shipped as a monthly comic. The title will instead be collected and printed as a graphic novel, skipping the floppies entirely.
I really like this. also dem artists
and then he showed up on /co/ and left after someone impersonated him
Someone needs to tell him how to trip
That's a very good sign, that's top-book talent
Speaking of Midnighter, it's actually maybe wearing the SS crossover well. Instead of throwing the unpowered mercs at him, Orlando's dumping Parasite on his ass.
That has plenty of potential.
Also, with an already-known length of 13 chapters, that's a known quantity and hopefully it's been polished and refined to not waste any space
unlike how many ongoings are clearly written on the fly
doors are for people without this kind of musculature
I wish Hawkgirl and the Cosmic Vagina was, like, 2 issues shorter
Okay, I keep seeing characters say this in comics.
Stop it. That is not a word. Nobody talks like that. We do not need a gendered term for people who commit murder. For fucks sake.
Found out a friend of mine may be getting dropped from our university program due to plagiarism. Karmic justice, given the way he is.
Going through the storytimes the past few nights, I'm really reminded about how I have such a poor gasp of when these books were being released, as far as what year and what events were going on. it all kinda muddles together.
There's some Heroic Age banners, and then INFINITY got plastered on everything, right?
Oh ho ho, anon! Once upon a time, there was an arc of Hawkgirl written by Walt Simonson...
and drawn by Howie Chaykin
It is in fact adorable Hal plushie
>that feel when you walk into an uncollected shit thread and bitch about milestone and walk out preordering the reprints you didn't know about
My SS #2 arrived, too. Shit, I love being wrong.
I am really glad for those Milestone reprints, I've been wanting to read Icon for a while
I already caved and bought all of Suicide Squad digitally when there was a sale before I thought they'd ever release a vol 2, so I am conflicted about getting the new trades
so, who's the father of Jess' blonde babby?
It also looks about 6-8 months old on that cover
and I'm sure we won't get a Stealth-quality "Jess gives birth" issue, either
so how about that Bendis/Maleev "like what we did to Daredevil" solicit for IIM?
Surprisingly strong support for Carol being the father. Not that I blame you, since that would at least be some quality COMIC BOOKS fuckery.
I bet people are still mad that futa-Mystique isn't canon.
Actually, it's questionable genetics for her to be cranking out a blond kid. Not impossible, because WALLY'S HALF-KOREAN REDHEADS won that title, but I'm suspicious it's double not-hers.
Mark Russell interview, he says he's got another DC thing coming
>Can you tell us the story about the reboot of the Prez title ? How did you do to make that comicbook ? Did DC directly contact you ?
>Yes, DC contacted me directly. So I hope no one is reading this for advice on how to get into the comic book industry. Waiting for DC Comics to call you is a really bad idea. But for me, the improbable happened, and out of the blue they asked me if I wanted to write the reboot of an obscure 1974 comic about a teenage president. How could I say no ? What part of that offer is unattractive ?
>Rebooting Prez was ultimately the idea of DC Publisher Dan Didio, who matched me with artist Ben Caldwell and editor Marie Javins, which were choices made in Heaven. When I described the dark parody of American politics I had in mind for what was supposed to be a mainstream DC comic, it would have been fair for anyone working with me to wonder if they were committing career suicide. But Dan, Ben and Marie were all immediately on board and have been really great to work with. I wanted the world of Prez to be someplace at once familiar to us, but also deeply unsettling. I wanted to populate the world of Prez with people who don’t realize they’re living in a dystopia, as is usually the case. I think this dystopia of the unaware lends itself well to satire, as people are funniest when they don’t realize they’re being funny.
>DC has allowed me a lot of freedom. So far, they’ve let me get away with everything except putting Meryl Streep in an exoskeleton and using the word fishdick.
>I do. I have recently signed a deal to write another title for DC, but I can’t be more specific than that until they make the announcement.
>and I'm sure we won't get a Stealth-quality "Jess gives birth" issue, either
Not sure it's even possible to recreate that magic.
>It also looks about 6-8 months old on that cover
Time skip. They are determined to be as boring as possible with this.
Two more SI issues
this is fun but much lighter weight than Ellis
Redheaded Asians are rare, but they exist.
Hell, they're a bit of a bullied minority in school over in Japan.
And the teachers respond not by teaching kids to not treat people shit based on hair color, but telling the kids to..dye their hair black.
>DC has allowed me a lot of freedom. So far, they’ve let me get away with everything except putting Meryl Streep in an exoskeleton and using the word fishdick.
That's oddly comforting.
Hopeless doesn't strike me as a Man of Deep Comics Research
Huh, they really do have Andrea in a cut-rate Ms. Marvel getup
Are there any funny Spider-characters left?
Post-Slot Silk, I guess? Kinda? The writer might be doing damage control on Felicia as of the next solicits, which is amusing. But he did exceed all expectations.
>Is Peter even funny any more?
No, he just never shuts up, and mistakes that for humor.
A lot of people spoke out against the portrayal of other heroes outwardly disliking him(Storm and Falcon most prominently), but honestly, I agree. Peter Parker is annoying as fuck.
Hank's is as flat as the city of Houston
Houston's really fucking flat
So IIRC, upcoming in a few issues we have a crossover. Should I throw in the other books we're crossing over with?
it depends very, very heavily on your definition of 'fun'
oh, it's later than I thought, no point thinking about it today
Norman showed up, face covered in bandages, supplying goblin juice and tech to third world militants. One such group attacked a village that Parker Industries was building solar panels for, Aunt May was there helping. Once all the panels were blown up the village chief told Spider-Man that until they can defend themselves, there's no point rebuilding, and then was seen hiring some of the goblin army from Norman himself to provide protection.
Well, Dave, to go ahead and spoil it, is Waypool your idea of fun? :D
iHerc was fun although Chaos War was a mess, so I'll give it a spin
Yes, he triumphs here and then in the main Secret Invasion book he kills the Skrull Queen in the final melee
I know they're invading and shit, but this kind of gleeful cannon fodder never sits right with me
Sure is AMURRICA in here...
...Hulk sex comedy sounds GREAT. Refreshing, even.
Like the Oglaf disclaimer: "we started out intending to make porn and it became sex comedy almost immediately"
reminder that SECRET INVASION came down to a lined-up battle in Central Park
after like four issues of bullshit in the Savage Land
TOTAL DERAIL, but there was a DC/Marvel official recipe thread and I'm fukken making this shit.
>tfw the marvel recipes are absolute trash
That looks pretty reliable
reminder that Moonstone controls her own costume so she's choosing to be all tits out, here
>Tej K @CloisLover @gregpak Dear Mr. Pak, when is Lois and Clark going to be together again in the New52/DCYou ? Thanks, enjoy the day.
run away, Greg, they'll find you
they make me hope they stay buttmad forever
Not as lazy as BP.
Cassie as Lennox's daughter has story potential
it's also less stupid than the boobspike armor
It's disturbing because the subtext is hard to deny at this point.
>So much whining that he would dare focus on Lana Lang for an arc.
Why do they object to Lana? Is it because of Smallville? Because that's petty as fuck if so.
No, it's because their main focus is Lois to such a degree that it excludes other women, and they frame the focus on Lois and the Lois/Superman ship as a feminist issue, in fact, one of the most pressing ones in comics
Black Driver got named after Diggle because Diggle wrote Green Arrow: Year One, with Jock on art
>Cassie as Lennox's daughter has story potential
Not seeing how. Especially considering he's dead and only like, three people even give enough of a shit about him to even remember he existed at all.
Smallville is probably the source, but it was dressed up as some feminist thing. Lois is feminist and Lana is "traditional" so it's un-feminist to focus on Lana, even when Pak's goal was to beef up Lana's character and make her less traditional.
I wish that more people would draw realistic tits. Like, go hire some nude life models, and do some studies. real tits are great!
it's a good clear origin, it has no boobspike armor, it gives Cassie a connection to Diana and her pantheon for future stories, and it can be aspirational, which TT needs more of
I'm really earnest! It's not you, anon, it's me
>they don't like Lana because she's not Lois
.... Y'know, at least the Smallville thing would make a stupid kind of sense, but this is just detached from any form of cohesive thought.
For you young'ns here, this is 100% Dick Nixon
Because it was cool and it tried to break Marvel out of a ridiculously NYC-centric rut
>Vance and Richie don't hate you, Robbie
My Texan rage at no more Houston won't let Kaine be hardcore is extensive, I promise you
>Norman wouldn't hurt a fly.
Oh, you can shut right the fuck up.
These people deserve their misery. Bunch of goddamned sheep the lot of them.
Oh Robbie. We'll see you again at Avengers Academy, baby. It'll be okay.
For the sake of fun stories, I'd rather it be someone completely different
like Selina, since she's on the run and tieri's tenure was two goddamn issues and the series is probably canceled
At least reading this now, we know he escapes into a happier book later!
>everyone already makes fun of us
>we don't even have a cape representative
The closest we got is Man-Thing. Which is nice, but come on now.
WAs that McDuffie? that was a weird run but very interfered with
What? She's not crippled, she just barely shows up anywhere
>isn't it just as bad?
Yeeeep. That Pre-New52 book with Lois and Clark is doing pretty bad sales-wise, right. The "NOT MUH SUPERMAN?LOIS" fans couldn't even put their money where their mouths regarding their beloved ship.
8 issue mini now, it seems
also it's a deliberate snub to not have a Neal Adams variant for it, now
Thing about boobs is they come in so many varieties, but everyone has kind of a platonic ideal in their head, because male and female we're all pretty obsessed with them. It makes it hard to draw boobs that satisfy everyone's requirements.
Did they pull the Adams variant or something? I thought it had one solicited
Telos got cut in half and S&L lost four issues, I wouldn't be surprised if they cut Titans Hunt short too
I was thinking about running the first half, Vance is husbando material
I love you grumpy!anon, but Florida is full of shit that will try to kill you and happily eat your body for nourishment
I need to catch up on Ewing NA, because Songbird in the Avengers is so <3
Those two have the best bitchfights, really
OH, I meant the first half of Academy
An Initiative is fine too!
I got no sleep last night, tonight's gonna be sleepmax
>Way to go, Pre-Flashpoint fans. You really showed how the Pre-New52 DCU was important to you.
I think everybody who was excited to see those versions of Clark & Lois lost interest real fast when they saw that it was set in the new 52 DCU, they thought they were going to get a book that was actually set in the pre=Flashpoint DCU
but yeah the low sales on that probably aren't going to convince DC any further that they need to bring pre-FP stuff back
Every place on Earth has things that try to kill you. But if you're dumb enough to live near the fucking glades, that's on you. Goddamn.
And that's rich, coming from the Texan. Been shot lately?
Suck my dick at the Nexus of All Realities.
No, but I hope to go hunt some forest rats soon! I've never been hunting (although I have shot an AR-15, that was pretty fucking cool)
if 4chan didn't archive shit, I'd post the proof :(
...Songbird doesn't have a nanochain, I don't think
>I think everybody who was excited to see those versions of Clark & Lois lost interest real fast when they saw that it was set in the new 52 DCU, they thought they were going to get a book that was actually set in the pre=Flashpoint DCU
Yeah, good point.
Another good point.
I want my Midnighter/Hawkman all violence spectacular, hoot hoot
I'm reading DC One Million and at one point Dick says in reference to Roy, "he's trying to get the Titans thing going again,"
My first thought is "that won't end well"
10 pages later reckt and turned into living bombs by Vandal Savage.
This always happens to me late in storytime because 4chan is superslow to update, too.
Oh shit I need to re-run Dreamwar now that we can appreciate so much more of it
