Special double-sized first issue! The One% own more than half the world’s wealth. They’ve crashed economies, bought governments, and have amassed more power than any other group in history, but they still don’t have enough. With this kind of power how can anyone make them pay? Who will make them pay? Enter Renato Jones, a mysterious vigilante out to even the score. When he enters the fray The Super-rich Are Super F***Ed.
What happens if you were to mix Bruce Wayne and Frank Castle together, but instead of just any criminals the hybrid vigilante targets the super rich 1%? Well, then you’d have Renato Jones! I wasn’t sure what to expect from this series but it had Kaare Andrews, so I knew I was in! It’s completely his baby, and that leaves so much room for insane storylines and fantastic artwork! »

Syfy will launch a new Pa show in Summer called Aftermath. The 13-episode Canadian apocalypse thriller will begin production on May 2 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Jason Stone (This is the End) is set to direct the first two episodes while Stefan Pleszczinski (Being Human), Kaare Andrews (Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero), April Mullen (Killjoys) and Jame [Continued ...] »
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is almost in theaters, and the promotional machine has hit light speed. Everywhere you look, the ominous logos of its two iconic superheroes are everywhere, crowding billboards and buses, breakfast cereal boxes and toy isles. So why should the comic book store be any different. This is where these titans originated. So of course it makes sense that DC Comics is using the movie to sell its most recent line-up of monthly adventures.
Both the Dark Knight and The Man of Steel will be gracing the covers of quite a few DC Comics titles thourghout the month of March. And we have a look at two of those variant covers here, which show Bruce Wayne and Kal-El locked in deadly battle. Artists Stephen Platt and Massimo Carnevale are responsible for these specially-polybagged upcoming issues of Grayson and Wonder Woman.

Variant covers are something of a tradition in American comics--usually superhero comics. While I generally abhor the tradition for two reasons (one, the covers never represent the actual content in the books, and two, I hate that it preys on the completionist's Ocd), even I have to admit that they tend to get some quality cover designs out of it, and if this first series of covers is any indication, this will be no exception.
In celebration (and promotion) of the upcoming Batman v Superman, DC will be producing three variant covers for ten issues of comics. The first issue to get this treatment will be Detective Comics #50, with the cover being done by Rafael Grampa.
You can check out these covers below!
Below is the full list of comic issues that will be receiving the treatment:
3/2: Detective Comics #50 (variant by Rafael Grampa)
3/9: Action Comics #50 (variant by Martin »
