Miller, given stewardship of All-Star Batman & Robin, DC’s attempt at showing characters in their most iconic light without the bloat of main stream DC continuity, chose to revisit the character he helped reinvent for…
This news is as entirely unexpected as it is great: Boom! Studios has announced that its wildly successful teen comic series Lumberjanes is going to crossover with DC Comics’ very own Gotham Academy, creating what might just be the hippest teen mystery team-up in comic book history.
Last night, the CW aired a special titled DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, which gave us our very first look at Wonder Woman. And we saw Diana everywhere in a bunch of different situations.
There have been teases for months and months about DC’s cinematic take on the Justice League and how they might be involved in Batman v Superman. But a new image that’s hit social media might just be our first official look at the Justice League standing tall.
The Wonder Woman movie is making a pretty bold change to her origin—but this isn’t just another example of DC Comics screwing needlessly with its characters. I’m here to tell you why this particular alteration is a brilliant idea. Spoilers ahead...
Here’s one of the best moments from last night’s episode of Supergirl. The fight scenes were actually pretty great, and seemed to be done in a way that actually used the show’s low VFX budget to good effect. This moment felt like it borrowed from Chronicle, in a great way. Read on for more of the best and worst…
We got a brief glimpse at Hot Toys figures for Batman v Superman yesterday, but now the company has released a full look at the Dark Knight and Man of Steel, and—nope. Can’t do it any more. Have to say it. LOOK AT THE GODDAMN SIZE OF BATMAN’S NECK, HOLY COW.

For over 70 years, Superman has hidden behind a single secret identity: Clark Kent. But now that the comics have re-exposed Clark Kent to the DC universe, the Man of Steel needs a new alter-ego. And so, for the first time in his history, Superman has a new secret persona.
Here’s a bit of trivia for you: when he was coming up with an idea for a new comic, art Jack Kirby witnessed a woman lift a car to get her child out from under it. The moment helped inspire one of his most famous creations: the Incredible Hulk.

It’s not been a good day for DC Comics. Earlier this morning, the company announced that it was down over $2 million in its total revenue and expenditure for the last financial year.

A few months ago, Bruce Wayne died—and Jim Gordon took on the heavily armored Batman-mantle. But, this is comics: a magical, wonderful land where Death is more a temporary check-in at a fancy hotel than a permanent rest. As we’ve known for a while, Bruce Wayne is very much alive, but the kicker? He’s done being…
When DC announced that their series of World War II, pin-up style takes on their cadre of female heroes was getting a comic, we couldn’t wait to see some of comic’s coolest ladies swing into action—and now we’ve got a taste of just how great it is with a new, Batman-filled preview.

DC has refreshed its stable of comics once again, putting its characters in new situations— and most of them have gotten a new look to celebrate.
