A couple of weeks ago, I was reading my daily dosage of entertainment news as usual. I was checking dcublog.com or the DC Universe Source blog, and it had some interesting information about a new second wave of DC’s 52. While I became excited since it contained a few comics such as Batman: Incorporated, World’s Finest, and G.I. Combat, I cannot help being skeptical as to why DC is replacing some of their series with new ones.
I was talking with my comic book shop owner the other day on our thoughts on this, and we both came to the conclusion it was mostly about DC wanting to ramp up their characters showing new versions of their post-Flashpoint world. While I hope that to be the case, I began to wonder if DC was not doing the ol’ bait and switch because of sales.
All of DC’s New 52 series had at least one printing after the first printing, and their company’s market share went drastically up. This seems to confuse me when I hear this, and then they decide to ditch great new potential series like Men of War and Hawk and Dove. I loved the former, and was disappointed when the latter lost Sterling Gates but was happy it was continuing. I at least thought War was a successful series but were the series really successful? If DC is pulling them, I cannot but wonder if it is due to their sales falling as readers dropped off the books. Beyond that, it might be because of what my comic book shop owner and I hypothesized: DC wants to world-build.
I think DC is preparing for big events down the road. When the New 52 first started, I remember DC writers and editors shying away from speaking about any event. However, there was the talk of the red-cloaked woman showing up in all the new number 1’s. There seems to be something going on there but with all these new characters and concepts, you cannot help but think DC has something up their sleeves they’re not telling us? Do you? I certainly think (and hope) they do. However, I hope that is a little far off because I enjoy the current way DC is going about their comics.

With the newest issue coming out this week, I felt it good for us to review what happened last month as readers pick up the next installment of Batman v. The Penguin. Unlike a lot of my fellow reviewers on the web, I actually liked this newest installment. The story starts off with Bruce reeling from his previous encounter with the Dollmaker and the Joker. He is still wondering as to what happened to the Joker. He is thinking how he and the other Gothamites want answers. The opening action where he finds himself is at a Joker rally akin to the Occupy movement occurred across the nation. However this time, it is “End the Bat.” He tries to chase someone who he suspects of being the Joker. As he makes his way through the crowd of lunatics, they tell him he is at the wrong rally. However, they eventually catch onto the fact he is actually the real Batman, and they try to take him down. When Bruce finally gets away from them, he is too late. He finds a mere mask with possible DNA for him to take but also finds a token for the Iceberg Lounge. Meanwhile, Charlotte is on her way to the Iceberg as well. Bruce never showed up for her date, and she decided to go out for her VIP night. As she gets ready on her friend’s boat for the big night, she decides to dress up, and do some undercover reporting. In the background, a Penguin is keeping an eye on her.
The backup revolves around Catwoman working with Hugo Strange’s son to rip off a game of Russian roulette. They succeed, and Hugo revels on how his son is like him; how he will continue to make him his son.
Tony Daniel keeps the greatness going. He continues the mystery of what happened to the Joker but, at the same time, is moving the plot forward by digging into a new plot with the Penguin and Charlotte’s past. His artwork is also amazing. He is one of my favorite artists, and continues to churn out great art. All in all, it is not what the first arc was but it also is not a bad start either. People need to give this man a break…….

This comic starts off with an interesting showdown between Allen and Thragg and Oliver and a one eyed alien guy. However, then the randomness of this comic occurs. A bunch of people show up, fight, and two people are fighting on some place that seems to be earth. This issue was not easy to follow in many spots beyond the fact there was a showdown between two groups of people, and then an entire other group of heroes (or villains) show up. In its 88th issue, I am amazed it has lasted that long.
Robert Kirkman does a terrible job of writing this comic. As a reader, his constant use of word balloons is anything but cute, and causes the reader to become bogged down with too much information. Beyond that, it is very difficult to follow the storyline when a bunch of new characters are introduced. A writer should not introduce characters unnecessary to the plot, and he definitely does that here.
Ryan Ottley’s art is great. It keeps the reader on their feet, and constantly surprised me with his dynamism. He is able to deliver great depth of action but also keep the moments of the story important. However, due to Kirkman’s script, there is little of that.
All in all, I am disappointed by this comic. Named Invincible, you would think it would be something great. However, this is an example of a comic that is over-plotted way too much, and needs to scale back its scope quite a lot which is ironic since most comics need to extend their scope. Not this one however……

A WEEKEND OF CREATIVE PANELS AT IMAGE EXPO
IMAGE EXPO ANNOUNCES PROGRAMMING SCHEDULE
Opening with a keynote address from Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson on Friday night that will include some exclusive announcements, the programming at the upcoming Image Expo on February 24-26 in Oakland, California features some of comics’ most creative personalities discussing the industry’s hottest topics, as well as talking about their own work.

11 a.m Womanthology: What Zeitgeist? It’s no secret that diversity in comics takes up a large part of the critical discussion of the medium online. How does gender relate to who is telling a story, what story they’re choosing to tell, and how that story is perceived by an audience? Womanthology started as an online discussion, then quickly blossomed into a full-fledged idea. And from there it went on to be one of the most successful comics projects on Kickstarter. Join some of the contributors and editors to discuss the experience of making Womanthology, the role of women in comics, as well the need for more anthologies that feature new creators from a variety of backgrounds. Plus, jokes about giant crab attacks and superheroes wearing underwear. Panelists: Bonnie Butler, Mariah Huehner, Trina Robbins, Nicole Sixx, Fiona Staples Moderator: Blair Butler
12 p.m. Stories and Scripts: Writing Comics How do comics readers get their vision from their minds, to script, to the drawn page?

Vaughan Moderator: Richard Starkings
1 p.m Twenty Years of Independence: The Image Comics 20th Anniversary Panel Twenty years ago, a group of young artists left their work-for-hire jobs to forge their own path in comics.

The sweep of the series is epic, but its emotions are intimate: a forbidden romance and a young family on the run, set against the backdrop of galactic war and racial hatred. Vaughan and Staples will talk about the conception of their gorgeous new comic, the creative process, and the overwhelming response that it has gotten from the media months before its first issue even hits stores. Panelists: Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
3 p.m. From Page to Screen: Comics on TV How do producers go about translating comics for the small screen? How does working in comics compare to working in television?

Vaughan (Lost), writers like Jay Faerber (Ringer), creators like Joe Casey (Ben 10) and Todd McFarlane (Spawn), or a little bit of everything like Blair Butler — will assemble to talk about the ins and outs of the industry.

Panelists: Robert Kirkman and Steven Yeun Moderator: Chris Hardwick
5 p.m. Spotlight on Chew How does it feel for your comic book about an FDA agent who gathers clues by eating things — including people — to sell out, become a critical darling, win multiple awards, and appear on a New York Times bestseller list? Wait, how do you even come up with the idea for a comic about a cibopathic police-officer-turned-food-plant-inspector? You have questions about Chew. Creators Rob Guillory and John Layman just might be the right guys to answer them. Panelists: Rob Guillory and John Layman
6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. CAPTURED GHOSTS Screening Warren Ellis sees the future. He is a comic book writer and cyberpunk philosopher living on the edge of tomorrow.

Berkeley, CA – February 2 – Top Cow Productions, Inc. is proud to announce that the winner of the Pilot Season 2011 event is Jeremy Haun’s and Jason Hurley’s THE BEAUTY.
THE BEAUTY beat out seven other competitors to take the Pilot Season crown in the most competitive voting period in the history of Pilot Season. This year saw the adoption of elimination-style voting as titles competed over three rounds to determine the overall winner. At the deadline, nearly one million votes total had been cast by fans for the Pilot Season 2011 titles. Other Pilot Season 2011 contenders included THEORY OF EVERYTHING by Dan Casey, Nick Nantell and Thomas Nachlik, ANONYMOUS by Matt Hawkins, Alan McElroy and Michael Montenat, MISDIRECTION by Filip Sablik and Chris DiBari, THE TEST by Joshua Hale Fialkov and Rahsan Ekedal, SERAPH by Lance Briggs, Phil Hester and Jose Luis, FLESHDIGGER by Shannon Eric Denton, Brad Keene and Alex Sanchez and CITY OF REFUGE by Morgan Davis Foehl and Dennis Calero.
In the world of THE BEAUTY, a new STD spreads across the world, but this is a disease you want to catch. It makes all infected people unspeakably attractive. But after the world’s face-lift, two detectives discover some nasty, undesirable side effects. Will the world decide to stay beautiful at an unspeakable cost, or resign themselves to an ordinary-looking life?
With THE BEAUTY having been declared the official winner, the creative team will now work with Top Cow’s editorial department to plan out the full series.
“Now that we’ve won we’re going to be able to finish the story. I’m really excited to do that. It’s exciting to be co-writing and drawing something like this,” said Haun. “The process is surprisingly fast and a hell of a lot of fun. The trick of it is going to be balancing work on The Beauty with my regular art duties on The Darkness monthly book. Luckily, they’re both books that I absolutely love. It also doesn’t hurt that I just love to work. As crazy as it may seem, drawing two books is kind of my idea of fun.”
“Winning Pilot Season is easily the biggest moment of my career so far, and I couldn’t be happier. It was a hard-fought battle, but thanks to all of the fans of The Beauty, we came out on top,” exclaimed Hurley. “I can’t wait to get back to work on the book. We’ve got a lot of exciting stuff planned for the future of The Beauty, and since we’ve won Pilot Season, we’ll be able to share all of that with our fans. More than anything, I just want to send a huge thank you out to all of our family, friends, and fans for their support throughout the entire voting process. It’s thanks to them that we’re able to continue The Beauty.”
This PILOT SEASON, the fans came out in full force, crashing the first poll several times for the chance to vote for their favorite 2011 Pilot Season one-shots. Pilot Season is an annual initiative Top Cow began in 2007, inspired by a concept from the television industry: a number of “pilot issues” are submitted for consideration to be “picked up for a season,” except instead of TV executives deciding their fates, it’s the fans!
Previous winners of Pilot Season include: CYBLADE, VELOCITY, TWILIGHT GUARDIAN, GENIUS and 39 MINUTES. The CYBLADE, VELOCITY and TWILIGHT GUARDIAN series have been released and can currently be found at your local comic book shop or through Top Cow’s digital distribution partners. 39 MINUTES and GENIUS are currently in production and will be given release dates soon. All eight of the 2011 competitors are available at your local comic shop or through Top Cow’s digital distribution partners including comiXology, Graphicly, and iVerse. A trade paperback collecting all eight titles is planned for release in March 2012 and will carry a price of $19.99.
