Cammy’s Favorite Covers – Batgirl To Godzilla

Cameron Hatheway writes for Bleeding Cool: Batgirl #22 by Alex Garner B-but, Batgirl doesn’t kill! Right? Everything I thought I knew is a lie!!! All red herrings aside, I enjoyed this cover immensely thanks to Garner’s radical-looking painted style. The …

DC Cancels Dial H And Demon Knights Too…

Sorry folks, Dial H and Demon Knights are joining Legion Of Superheroes in the cancellation collection in August… I’ve really enjoyed both series, through occasional downs but lots of ups. Both were in my New 52 top ten, certainly. With …

Merlin And The Doctor (Demon Knights Spoilers)

Demon Knights #15 is Paul Cornell‘s last issue on the series. And brings to an end all sorts of plots, character stories and themes. With a big battle, it’s rather lovely. It also ties into the future that we’ve seen …

Swipe File: Asterix & Cleopatra & Demon Knights

Thanks to Little Bleeder Paul DiFilippo for this one. On the left, a panel from Demon Knights, on the right, a scene from Asterix & Cleopatra. In which there were many references to exactly how nice Cleopatra’s nose was… In …

Is Paul Cornell Leaving Demon Knights Too?

There’s been a rumour going round the British comics industry circles of late that Paul Cornell is leaving Demon Knights and setting up new projects at Marvel to replace it. His Vertigo book, Saucer Country, would be unaffected. That is …

Superboy #0 And Demon Knights #0 Retcon Their First Issues

Retcon. Retroactive continuity. How we have missed thee. It’s often the case that new writers taking over a book reinterpret certain events we have seen in the title’s past. From dismissing them as fiction, to delivering new meanings, to inserting …

Dan DiDio Parodies Panel Parity At Kapow

One of the odder moments at Kapow this weekend (and there were a number) was when Paul Cornell continued his commitment to panel gender parity (you can read about it here) and sat in the audience for the DC New …

Eleven Thoughts About Eleven Of Today’s Comics – JiM, Demon Knights, Crossed Badlands, Batwoman, Peter Panzerfaust, Queen Crab, Batgirl, Saga, Saucer Country, Fantastic Four and Avengers

Journey Into Mystery, while being one of Marvel’s most entertaining comics full stop, has spectacular recap pages. Rather than present a series of panels to show what went on in previous issues, we get the plot narrated by a variety …

Demon Knights #5 – A Dungeons And Dragons Game In Disguise?

Demon Knights is one of the ten or so New 52 comics that I eagerly read by choice every month. But there’s been something nagging at the back of my head, and this issue gave it an extra tug. Demon …

Reach Of Daemonites In The DC New 52 Goes Further

We’d already seen mention of the Wildstorm alien race, the shape-shifting Daemonites, in the Wildstorm-originated books Stormwatch, Grifter and Voodoo. But this week’s DC Comics All Access editorial page states that the Daemonite influence will also extend to Demon Knights, …

Shop Talk – Walking Dead, Avengers: X-Sanction, & New 52 Month 4

Rather than simply relying on sales figures, which never tell the full picture, we ask retailers what is, and what isn’t, moving for them, and here’s what they had to report this week, on some of December 14’s new releases. …

Sixteen Thoughts About Sixteen DC Comics – The Ray, Legion Lost, Suicide Squad, Grifter, Batgirl, Mister Terrific, Batman And Robin, Frankenstein, The Shade, Deathstroke, My Greatest Adventure, Resurrection Man, Green Lantern, Demon Knights, Batgirl and Batwoman

Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen DC Comics – Batwoman, Batman And Robin, Batgirl, Huntress, Penguin, Legion Lost, Green Lantern, Demon Knights, Superboy, Suicide Squad, Resurrection Man, Mister Terrific, Grifter and Frankenstein

Twleve issue threes and two issue twos, the DC relaunch is starting to bed in. Which is probably why so many books try to do a little something different this week. Resurrection Man is into its third issue and already …

Blowing Up The Baby In Demon Knights #1

There has naturally been rather a lot of commentary on the portrayal of Starfire in Red Hood And The Outlaws and Catwoman in her own title, pointing out the manner of intense sexualisation of characters that had, to some degree …

Horsewoman – The New Oracle Of The New DCU?

It would be crass and simplistic to say that Horsewoman from Demon Knights #1 is a “replacement” for Oracle, who seems to be regaining the use of her legs in the new Batgirl #1. But this is Bleeding Cool and …
