It’s Batman Day and DC Celebrates!

Today is the day the Dark Knight Detective was born! New York City will be a glow on Saturday night when two icons unite for Batman Day celebrations on September 21st. If you are in New York City or one of 12 other cities (including places like Tokyo, Melbourne, London and others) tonight, don’t be surprised to see the iconic Bat Symbol shining in the sky.  Batman was first introduced to the public in Detective Comics #27 (March 1939) and was created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. The Bat-Signal first appeared in Detective Comics #60 (December 1941).

JJ Abrams and his Son Takes on Spider-Man!

Naked Nepotism aside, I’m going to wait and see what this is before I say whether it’s good or bad. What am I talking about? Earlier this week Marvel Comics did a countdown gimmick to announce a secret new Spider-Man project. Some people were speculating that it was going to be a continuation of Sam Raimi’s and Sony’s Spider-Man movie verse only in comic form. Nope, imagine my surprise when the countdown ended and we got a video of JJ Abrams and his Son Henry announcing they are creating a 5 issue Spider-Man limited series that will also debut you brand new villain called Cadaverous. The series comes out this fall. As I’ve said, I’m going to withhold judgment until I learn more.

DC’s Year of the Villain All Initial Covers Revealed!

I don’t talk about comic books as much as I should on this site, but that’s going to change, I have review access for a few comic book companies now so expect more reviews soon. Sadly DC isn’t one of those companies which makes covering them hard because you all know I don’t like to just regurgitate press releases. Unlike Marvel at least DC gives me a little more meat to work with.

With that said DC has released all the initial covers for their upcoming Year of the Villain Event and they look quite tasty. If I can convince DC to give me some books, I will review every one of these issues. I’ve hated the last few DC Events because they were all basically Injustice clones. This event excites me because its back to Super Heroes vs. you know Villains. Not evil clones of themselves. Check out the official Press Release and Cover Gallery.
