DC teases Batman summer event Dark Days

21 March 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since Scott Snyder departed the main Batman title, he’s teased his return with his New 52 collaborator Greg Capullo on a DC event and it seems their return will be coming soon. DC has announced the coming of Dark Days, a prelude to Snyder’s Batman event that will be released as a pair of one shots aiming to expose “the dark underbelly of the DC Universe.”

The one-shots are titled Dark Days: The Force #1 and Dark Days: The Casting #1. Joining him on the titles are Detective Comics writer James Tynion IV and some of the biggest artists in the industry: Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and John Romita Jr. Below you can see Lee’s cover for Dark Days: The Forge #1.

Dark Days posits a mystery that traces all the way back to when I started on Batman,” Snyder said in a statement. “I’ve hinted »

Official Solicit Sheds More Light On Dark Days: The Forge #1

21 March 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yesterday, DC took us all by surprise by announcing two one-shots set to be published under the title of Dark Days, the first of which will ship in June. Co-written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, with art by John Romita Jr., Jim Lee and Andy Kubert, it’ll no doubt demand the attention of not just Batfans, but those of DC as a whole.

It’s certainly no secret by now that Snyder is cooking up a major event with Greg Capullo, which will center heavily on the Dark Knight. Knowing that, it caused us to believe that the upcoming one-shots will serve as a prelude to the main event.

Well, thanks to the official solicit touting The Forge with the line “The great comics event of summer 2017 is about to begin,” it seems like our suspicions of this being a prologue have been validated. Now, that doesn »

Last week, we brought word that it appeared as though Joker and Riddler would be going head to head in the pages of Batman this June and, thanks to a freshly released batch of solicits, we now know that it’s an absolute certainty. Not only that, but we’ve also learned what’s on the horizon for related books such as All-Star Batman, Batgirl and Super Sons.

First, let’s talk about Batman, since I imagine you’re all anxious to hear about that one. As it turns out, we’re still in the dark when it comes to the wealth of the plot, but seeing as how DC is invoking the holy names of masterworks such as Year One and The Long Halloween, we can only assume that rumors saying the upcoming »

Dark Days Lie Ahead For Batman And Others This Summer

20 March 2017 10:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that Justice League vs. Suicide Squad is well behind us, speculation regarding DC’s next major crossover event runs rampant. As of today, it appears we’ve been given our first real hints as to what it might be with the announcement of two one-shots set to be published under the title of Dark Days.

Not long ago, it was reported that superstar scribe Scott Snyder will pen a Batman-centered event that will likely launch late summer, with Greg Capullo returning as his artistic collaborator. Although we can’t confirm the specials today’s conversation is focused on are set to serve as preludes, it sure does seem like the dots are connecting a little too well.

As it so happens, Snyder will be joined by fellow writer James Tynion IV in addition to artists John Romita Jr., Jim Lee and Andy Kubert in order to bring us Dark Days »

All-Star Batman #8 Review

All-Star Batman #8 Gallery 1 of 9

This review contains minor spoilers. 

Scott Snyder’s All-Star Batman series, which features the Dark Knight travelling the Us and meeting a revolving door of his worst enemies, has served up seven high-quality issues so far. Issue #8, however, might just be the best one yet.

In ‘Ends of the Earth: Part 3,’ Batman travels to the swamps of Mississippi to confront the Mad Hatter, who he believes might be behind the necrotic plague released by Mr. Freeze back in Part 1. It turns out that the Lewis Carroll-loving weirdo might have a bigger bombshell than that up his sleeve, though. In a trippy, ultra-surreal tale, Jervis Tetch suggests that Bruce Wayne’s life as Batman is all a hallucination brought on by Tetch’s own ‘Looking Glass’ technology.

What Snyder has done in each previous issue is »

DC All Access Visits The Set Of The Flash/Supergirl Crossover, Explores All-Star Batman #8

14 March 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Knowing that the musical crossover involving The Flash and Supergirl is merely but a week away, DC All Access has finally disclosed its recent visit to the set that occurred during the filming of the appropriately titled “Duet.”

During her adventure, co-host Tiffany Smith was able to interact with various cast members from both participating shows, in addition to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’s Victor Garber. Given that his character, Martin Stein, did originate on The Flash, it does make some sense for him to be there.

Most interestingly, Darren Criss, the Music Meister himself, lends some information regarding the episode’s plot, although the major details seem understandably tightly under wraps. That aside, it was intriguing to hear that a Glee reunion wasn’t the only highlight of his experience – he also got to reunite with an old college buddy in Carlos Valdes.

Although All-Star Batman doesn’t take part in any crossovers like, for example, the upcoming one involving Batman and The Flash, that hasn’t deterred any readers from picking it up or detracted from the excitement the series offers. But, then again, it’s probably got something to do with the fact that you know what you’re getting from Scott Snyder.

Even though the release of issue #8 is still a few weeks out, DC is confident enough to circulate some preview images, which we’ve included in the gallery at the top. Fans will no doubt be instantly drawn to the stunning interiors provided by Giuseppe Camuncoli of Batman: Europa fame, with colors done by Dean White, thereby creating a sense of visual continuity with earlier issues that were penciled by John Romita Jr.

Comic Book Review – All-Star Batman #7

Chris Cooper reviews All-Star Batman #7…

Step aside, gentlemen—Poison Ivy is about to steal the spotlight in Batman’s continuing rogues gallery road trip. Scott Snyder teams up with mega-talent Tula Lotay to reimagine the Dark Knight’s most seductive villain.

Scott Snyder and Batman continue their journey around the world in the second part of the second All-Star Batman arc, and it couldn’t be more different from last month.

Mr Freeze was the main antagonist of a very different kind of story, one mainly on prose. It was an interesting read. This month we’ve got Pamela Isley, Aka Poison Ivy, in a much more traditional style. I can’t say I’m that impressed.

That feels like a big thing to say, especially after my proclaimed adoration for Snyder’s work in last month’s review. But the »

Emily S. Whitten: Fan2Sea, the Floating Comic-Con (Part II)

12 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

In my last column I talked about my expectations for the Fan2Sea comic-con cruise, how it fulfilled them, and some of the things I generally loved about being at a con on a cruise ship and about the way in which Fan2Sea pulled off its maiden voyage (haha!).

Today, it’s all about the details. Want to know what your daily experience will be like if (when! I hope!) Fan2Sea happens again and you decide to go? Well, I can’t say, but I can tell you what mine was like! So here goes:

Day 1

Day 1 was pleasantly low-key from the start. Because luggage was still being delivered to staterooms, I spent the first bit of ship time chilling in one of the main areas overlooking the bar, with my lovely roommate, ComicMix assistant editor Adriane Nash, and with PR guru (and former Comic Book Resources writer/editor) Steve Sunu. »

All-Star Batman #7 Review

8 February 2017 11:05 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review contains some minor spoilers.

After the initial five-part Two-Face arc, Scott Snyder’s All-Star Batman is now settling down into a series of one-shots that showcase a certain villain from Batman’s rogues gallery, under the loose banner of ‘The Ends of the Earth’ story arc. While this might simplify things on a macrocosmic level, Snyder’s microcosmic storytelling is just as impressive.

After Mr. Freeze released an ancient virus from the Alaskan frost last issue, Batman has travelled to Death Valley, Nevada, to persuade his old enemy Poison Ivy – an expert on toxins and antidotes – to help him contain the infection that’s sweeping through Washington. But can he convince the notorious plant-lover to save human life?

First of all, a round of applause to writer Scott Snyder for possibly the best handling of Poison Ivy’s character we’ve seen in years. The reawakening of her »

Scott Snyder Discusses Poison Ivy And Riddler’s Involvement In All-Star Batman

Without a doubt, Scott Snyder has made quite the name for himself over the course of the past seven years, arguably becoming one of the most lauded writers to touch the Dark Knight in history. With his highly acclaimed run with artist Greg Capullo now behind him, he’s been hard at work crafting his own Long Halloween of sorts in the form of All-Star Batman.

So far, we’ve experienced a story arc that completely redefined the Batman-Two-Face relationship, which was followed by an incredible prose heavy tale involving Mr. Freeze. But, with the latest issue, Snyder turns his attention to one of the greatest femme fatales in all of comics – Poison Ivy.

Fresh off her own miniseries – Cycle of Life and Death – Pamela Isley will no doubt be making frequent appearances in various »

Batman/Shadow To Unite Iconic Vigilantes This Spring

18 January 2017 9:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dream crossovers are certainly becoming all the rage these days in comic books. Just yesterday, we spoke of Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77, and today brings news of yet another exciting team-up featuring the Dark Knight. This time, DC will collaborate with Dynamite Entertainment in order to bring Batman/Shadow to life.

Although this isn’t the first occasion that the two vigilantes have joined forces in the comic book medium, it’s all the more special once you learn who’s on the creative team. Penning the six-issue miniseries will be Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman) and Steve Orlando (Justice League of America), with Riley Rossmo handling the artwork. If Rossmo sounds unfamiliar to you, you need only pick up a copy of Suicide Squad #9 in order to be sold on his ability.

Comic Books 101: DC Rebirth  Review 2017!

DC Comics had an overall week ending to their New 52 run. Many of the series just petered out, with only a few having any significant sendoff (Batman, Jla, Superman. Marvel was killing them in sales, and only the core titles ever broke the top 10. Then it all changed, DC made a bold announcement to once again “rework” their line up and in continuity world. They announced is DC Rebirth (You can see the lead up to DC Rebirth in my article here DC Comics Then And Now) an attempt to “get back to basics” for many of their characters. New creative teams, no visions for their books, and less crossovers! Phase 1 of the relaunch so far has been a huge success, the months of June-August were predominantly DC books in the top sales, and many fans have enjoyed the new stories regarding their favorite characters. »

Chris Cooper reviews All-Star Batman #6…

“Cold to the Core”! Batman travels to Alaska to confront Mr. Freeze as he attempts to extract the world’s oldest ice core and bring humanity to a new Ice Age! Powerhouse artist Jock joins Scott Snyder to bring you another of the Dark Knight’s rogues like you’ve never seen him before.

I’ve long been a fan of Scott Snyder’s work on Batman. The New 52 was where I started buying monthly comics, and I picked up all 50 issues of Snyder and Capullo’s Batman run.

Once it finished I toned down my monthly purchasing, so I’ve missed pretty much all of Rebirth so far. Fortunately Snyder is back with his own title, which not only manages to avoid the fortnightly release schedule adopted by many other titles but also appears to stand on its own. »

Ever since he started penning Batman stories earlier this decade, all eyes have been affixed to Scott Snyder – and rightfully so. Aside from Grant Morrison, it’s arguable that no other writer has redefined the character’s mythos so handily in recent memory. So, it comes as no surprise that when any news concerning All-Star Batman travels down the grapevine, we pay close attention.

Recently, we learned that Poison Ivy will play a key antagonistic role in issue #7, but Snyder himself has spilled more beans concerning the Mad Hatter’s upcoming appearance and much more (via Comicbook.com):

“I’m working with Giuseppe Camuncoli right now on the Mad Hatter one, and his style is so elastic and kinetic and action and tech, so different than Jock and to Tula Lotay on Ivy. It’s a joy, »
