Secret Origins, The New Ongoing From DC Comics

Yesterday, we ran some rumours about upcoming DC Comics titles. Some were well sourced, others… less so. But the original rundown from Tako seemed pretty reliable. And the elaboration at 4chan less so. Maybe as you might expect. Because Secret Origins #1 is not a one shot, it’s a new ongoing series, telling the origins […]

Aquaman And The Others… And Others From DC Comics In April 2014

Some Rather Remarkable Covers For A Regular Show Comic

It’s Thursday night, or rather, Friday morning. I’ve just come back from the pub. And what do I find waiting for me, and me alone? The covers to the new Regular Show #1 comic from Boom! for April. Which is probably going to go rather Adventure Timey very soon indeed. So I thought I’d share […]

Saucer Country And Superman Family Adventures Cancelled

Aw man… I was told that when Paul Cornell left DC Comics for Marvel, he’d still be doing Saucer Country. Clearly DC Comics disagreed.
