Steam Sale Day 5: What The Hell Is A Dear Esther Anyways?

We’re already at day five of the Steam Summer Sale, and this is about the time I start running out of jokes. How many ways can I tell you that I’ve spent too much money, or that my wallet is hurting? Besides, you deserve better. So I’m going to take this a different way. “What is the martial art expert’s favorite beverage?” “Kara-tea”…. Ok yeah that was horrible. Let’s pretend this never happened.

Just a reminder, unless the game you want is a daily deal or a flash sale, don’t buy it yet. There’s plenty of time left, and we’re all going to laugh when you buy something that goes on sale for more the next day.

Men Of War: Vietnam - $8.74 - Men Of War does a decent job of invoking the real fear of war as this game is

Manning up for The Expendables 2 - The Dolph Lundgren Rampage

Tom Jolliffe mans up in preparation for The Expendables 2 with an overdose of explosive action cinema, beginning with 'The Dolph Lundgren Rampage'...

Over the course of the next 6 weeks, I will be getting myself ready for the action spectacular that is The Expendables 2. This will be possibly the manliest film ever made, so with that in mind I feel it necessary to man the hell up in preparation by re-watching films from the Expendables themselves. Each star, a load of action, and possibly a whole bunch of dead brain-cells by the time the release date rolls around.

The rules are simple. I shall be avoiding the most iconic roles, like Rambo for Sly, the Terminator for Arnold etc., with the exception of naff sequels. I will be thinking randomly, delving into some of the darkest recesses of these muscular CVs, as well as some films that simply get forgotten.

DC Comics Announce Anthology Title National Comics

When DC Comics launched their full universe reboot The New 52, the company maintained that their run of ongoing titles would always number fifty two. Initially this had fans questioning how they would handle cancellations, but this was answered by a one in/one out kinda deal, with a cancelled title been replaced by a new one. We’ve seen this with Hawk And Dove, Men Of War, and others receiving the chop, and their replacements, with notable inclusions Batman Incorporated and Dial H, hitting shelves in May.

Now a new anthology title, National Comics, has been announced, but as of yet there is no word on what title will be cancelled.

As reported by Wired , the new title, a revival of a series which first saw print in the 1940′s, will focus on a different character every issue, telling done-in-one stories featuring the more obscure character who call the DC Universe their home.

DC Reveals First Look at Grant Morrison’s ‘Batman, Incorporated’

DC Comics has unveiled our first look at some of the new interior artwork by Chris Burnham that will be featured in the highly-anticipated return of Grant Morrison’s Batman, Incorporated. One of the biggest sour notes to coincide with the announcement that DC Comics would be relaunching its titles was the premature cancellation of Morrison’s Batman, Inc series.

Following Batman’s global recruitment of hero-worthy individuals to help “franchise” the Batman ideal, the series managed to launch the identities of several new characters who expanded on the DC Universe Bat-family and even managed to grab a few solo books for themselves amongst DC’s relaunched titles.

Speaking with The Source, series editor Mike Marts had the following to say about the upcoming title.

Grant Morrison’s new ‘Batman, Incorporated’ series is the final, unbelievable act of a saga six years in the making,” Marts told The Source. “Along

DC Introduces Six New Titles, Including China Miéville’s Dial H

DC Introduces Six New Titles, Including China Miéville’s Dial H
It was only a matter of time, really, for Hawk And Dove.

The painfully mediocre title will be one of six books that DC is canceling to make room for a ‘new wave’ of comics added to their New 52 roster. The other sacrifices are O.M.A.C, Blackhawks, Mister Terrific, Static Shock, and Men Of War. Fortunately, none of these are the wonderful worlds of monstrous mayhem praised in our previous article. Jeff Lemire even plans to bring his Frankenstein character into the eighth and final issue of Men Of War, giving monster kids an extra reason to buy it.

On another bright side, one of the replacements in store at DC will be Dial H, helmed by China Miéville (Kraken, Ironside, The City & The City)—one of the best science fiction/fantasy writers working today—in his comics debut, with art by Mateus Santoluoco. It should be fascinating

DC Comics launches six new titles to replace cancellations

DC Comics has announced six new titles to launch in May. The new series will replace the six that are to be cancelled from the original relaunched New 52. Batman Incorporated will return alongside Earth 2, G.I. Combat, The Ravagers, Dial H and World's Finest. O.M.A.C., Hawk and Dove, Blackhawks, Men of War, Static Shock and Mister Terrific will all end in April with their 8th issues. Grant Morrison's Batman Incorporated will continue with illustrations by Chris Burnham. Dial H is a series about an everyman who gains superpowers that will be written by award-winning novelist China Miéville - who was once lined up to write Swamp Thing - alongside artist Mateus Santoluoco.

The six titles that have landed on the chopping block include Men of War, Mister Terrific, O.M.A.C., Hawk and Dove, Blackhawks, and Static Shock, all of which have struggled terms of sales and quality when compared to the other titles in DC’s ‘New 52′.

DC Cancel Six Series’ Including Omac, Mister Terrific, Static Shock & More

When DC’s New 52 launched last year, I asked myself: will they still cancel a book due to poor sales? Seeing that there publication slate only consist of 52 books (and a handful of miniseries). Well, it seems DC have come up with a logical solution to this dilemma: cancel one book to make way for another. One out, one in style.

Reported by Bleeding Cool, six of the launch titles from DC’s universe wide reboot, Hawk and Dove, O.M.A.C., Mister Terrific, Men Of War, Static Shock, and Blackhawks, have all gotten the axe and will end with their eighth issue.

In May, the six new series will start: Batman Incorporated, continuing the story Grant Morrison started in the pre-New 52 universe. Earth Two, featuring the Justice Society from a parallel Earth. Dial H, a tale of transferrable super powers based on the old series Dial H For Hero.
