Well, maybe that’s a trifle alarmist, but that’s what occurred to me when I realized what a large portion of DC’s digital release program is devoted to Green Lantern… and how precious little of the current run is…Continue

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…Continue
Last week was a big week for DC, so it’s probably not surprising that its digital releases are in something of a holding pattern this week. Interestingly enough, the newly-defunct Wildstorm has the most noteworthy new release this week, releasing all three issues of Warren Ellis & Cully Hamner’s Red at once. Want to read the comic before the movie? The whole thing’s yours for six bucks. (Red also dominates the DC store this week, with…Continue
Big news week for DC, eh? I imagine the changes with Wildstorm and Zuda will shake out on the digital side in the coming weeks. For now, they’re both still searchable as imprints on Comixology, and unless something dramatically changes in the organization of the titles, I’ll probably keep breaking digital releases down into their original imprint.
First things first: Someone…Continue
This week, let’s go with the short stuff first. Vertigo seems quite happy to chug along with five books a week: American Splendor, DMZ, Fables, Sandman and Y. The first American Splendor miniseries concludes this week, but there’s another one after that, so I wouldn’t expect next week’s lineup to change.
Wildstorm has contracted these past couple weeks. This is the third week without the Core Four…Continue
After a few weeks of coasting, the DCU seems to be launching new titles or runs every week, lately. A couple weeks ago saw the debut of Green Arrow; last week we had a new branch of the Batman saga with the Red Hood story. This week, we see four (well, 3½) issues of Birds of Prey. I’d be hard-pressed to think of a worthier…Continue
This week, most of the interesting movement is going on at Wildstorm. The imprint is debuting three titles -- Welcome to Tranquility, Kane & Lynch, and Gears of War – and taking a different approach with each of them. Kane & Lynch is a 6-issue miniseries based on a video game (important to note, since there was also a Lynch involved with Wildcats, right?), and it gets a single debut issue priced…Continue
That’s the big news on the DCU side of things, as DC twangs off a double-shot of the Emerald Archer. The first part of the current “Brightest Day” storyline (Green Arrow Vol. 5) is available for free, and the first three parts of Kevin Smith’s “Quiver” storyline arrive, getting a free opening chapter (listed as Green Arrow, Vol. 3.) Ollie’s relationship with the…Continue
Short entry this time, for a couple of reasons. For one, I’m packing up for a long weekend at a music festival, and don’t have much time (no time for pictures either, alas). For another, Comixology seems very tied up
with the sale it’s running today, and there really aren’t any new expansions of
the lines… it’s all continuations.…
First of all, apologies for the late column. I thought I might have a chance to write something up during vacation, but events got away from me. Well, events and sweet-tea flavored vodka.
I did get a chance to take a look at the releases as they appeared however, and noticed what looked like, to me, errors in the release schedule. One – no Vertigo books were in the initial list – was rectified with a few additions the…Continue
Another smaller week for DC’s digital releases, with only 27 being rolled out yesterday. The week before had 29, and before that was a week of 36. I’m not convinced that this means DC’s slowing its output, necessarily. Part of it is simply being methodical about its releases, and part is that Comicon is a huge undertaking, and some of their digital resources probably had other things to take care of. That doesn’t necessarily mean there’s nothing to talk about,…Continue
So, DC’s latest bunch of digital comics are now online at Comixology. There aren’t a lot of surprises this week (aside from the surprise of them being posted on Saturday, not Wednesday). Established lines continue, generally with one book each. There’s fewer than last week’s 36 comics released this week; today, there are only 29.
Here’s what we’ve got.…Continue
