2008. Doesn’t seem that long ago, but in some ways, it feels like it has been quite some time. And for the movie making arms of Marvel and DC, the road to 2012 could not have been different.
First, there was Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. The first two salvos in Marvel Studios' pet project, of crafting a set of films that were interconnected and a shared universe, much in the same way comic books are.
Oh sure there were missteps along the way, Iron Man 2 was not the…

Since the beginning of this DC relaunch till now, the bat-books have been average some good (Detective Comics for the most part, and Batwoman) some terrible (Batgirl, Batwing…ugh) but no bat-book and I mean NO bat-book has blown me away like Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo's Batman #1. I simply can't think of one single bat-book in the entire DC relaunch that has had this much of an effect on me. I mean I still haven't picked my jaw up from the ground because this issue…

Tim has to take several risky moves in this issue, involving Lucius Fox who he has to set up to take a shot from the Scarab in the middle of meeting…

When Batman: The Dark Knight was first announced, I couldn't help myself from saying, "Another Batman ongoing? Why? Do we really need this?". And after reading the first issue of David Finch's efforts to both, write and pencil, I still find myself asking the very same questions I did before I ever read a page.
Batman: The Dark Knight continues DC Comics' recent trend of giving talented, high profile artists the opportunity to take over the writing and penciling duties….

Editor's Note: This will kick off our weekly series that will talk about all the new comics released in digital format. Digital may in fact be the future and we need to make sure fans are aware at the changing of times. This should have posted last weekend, but it is a little late. So for now read this article and look for this past week's updates tomorrow. I now throw it over to SteveJRogers.
But that the dread of something after death,

Let me present you with our first spotlight, one of my personal favorites, the legendary writer/artist Frank Miller.
Frank Miller is considered to be one of the most prolific and influential comic book creators of all time. Miller has left his mark…

Yesterday, some very big news was announced over at Warner Bros. and DC Comics. If you didn't read the official press release, head over to the news post here. To summarize a really long PR statement, WB is creating a new company called DC Entertainment, Inc. This division will still obviously be owned by Warner Bros., but will report directly to Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. The…
