DC Digital: Releases for October 27



Move along, nothing to see here.


Okay, that’s not entirely true, as the DCU has two debuts and another imprint has a dramatic break in its pattern, but on the whole, this is a pretty ho-hum week.…

Deck Log Entry # 112 So, You've Failed to Become a Member of the Legion of Super-Heroes (Part 1)

Rejected!



Few things are more painful to hear than to be told “We don’t want you!” Yet, for the vast majority of eager young hopefuls seeking membership in the Legion of Super-Heroes, “rejected” was the response.



These discards found their dreams dashed against the rocks. And it didn’t help matters that, even towards the candidates who applied in good faith, the Legionnaires were…

'Red' the GN spawns 'Red' the movie which spawns more 'Red' comics

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



The new movie Red, starring Bruce Willis, is based on a comic-book miniseries. A very, very short miniseries, which is probably why the movie adds so many new characters, which are now starring in their own comics. From comics to movies to comics again – it’s the new circle of life. …

All you ever needed to know about the Commies

While browsing around on Wikipedia, I came across the entry for a Hungarian-born cartoonist. That's pretty rare for me while on Wikipedia since I often wile away the hours hitting the "Random Article" button.

Reading through the story of the Hungarian's life, I was intrigued by a link. It took me to the Web version of his most famous book: "The Red Primer for Children and Diplomats," an editorial cartoon version of the rise of Communism.

It's a critical look at one of the dominant… Continue

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Oct. 5, 2010 -- Jacques Tardi’s masterful It Was the War of the Trenches ($24.99) was originally published in Europe in 1993, but thanks to Fantagraphics it has finally made it to the U.S. It was worth the wait.



Tardi was greatly affected by his grandfather’s stories about World War I, and has published… Continue

DC Digital Releases: October 6

Wow, DC exploded with new releases today. With 43 new comics released, it’s the biggest week since DC’s Comixology launch in June.



The DCU leads the pack with 24 titles, and two debuts. First up are four issues of the Johns/Eaglehsam Justice Society of America title that launched after the waning days of the JSA book. It’s an interesting pick – it promotes Johns, of course, but it…

Relocating the Marvel Universe -- Marvel's Merry Maryland

My blog series, Relocating the Marvel Universe, continues along with the state of Maryland, which features one of my favorite Marvel heroes of them all -- The Jack of Hearts.

But my favoritism aside, it's also the tromping ground for two mutants, a robot and a six-armed freak. Just like the 31 other states I've covered in the series that pulls Marvel's heroes out their typical setting of New York City and peppers them around the entire United States… Continue
