After doing digital first titles that tied in with video games, and TV shows, DC is now rolling out books featuring their characters in untethered to other medium titles.
First up, is Legends of the Dark Knight. Taking up the mantle of the 223 issue series published between 1989 and 2007, that was, for the most part, out of continuity stories and at the beginning focusing on the early days of Bruce’s career, but soon widened the scope…

It was only about a month ago that it was announced that DC would be adding more digital first series to the current crop of Beyond titles and Smallville. One of the series is a non-canon Batman series that teams lots of creators together, in some cases, for the first time. Comic Book Resources talked with one of the creators of Lost who happens to be teaming with Jeff Lemire, Damon Lindelof. While there is not a lot of info to give on a ten page story, Lindelof does his best to share.

Ever since its inception, I have heard nothing but wonderful things about the Jonah Hex series. The book is a strong example that one-and-done storytelling is still probably the best format in comics. However, I have never been able to develop a strong interest in the character to consistently pick-up the ongoing.

A Superboy review? In The Batman Universe? Have we stumbled back into the Silver Age? Nope, this month Poison Ivy has a cameo in Superboy’s new, ongoing series; and where she goes I will follow. So buckle up Gothamites, because we are Smallville bound!
For those of you who weren’t tuned in last month, Conner Kent had just finished up his battle with the Parasite when the local flora started acting out of control and Poison Ivy appeared on the scene. She denies having anything to do with…
