What to take away from Crisis On Infinite Earths’ biggest Easter eggs

What to take away from Crisis On Infinite Earths’ biggest Easter eggs

Tonight, Arrow goes back to the relative normalcy of what we can start calling the Post-Crisis Arrowverse, even though tonight’s episode is technically a backdoor pilot for the new spin-off about near-future Star City and its new Green Arrow. Before that, though, let’s take a look back at the most interesting Easter eggs we noticed during the Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover and try to...

This Far Sector exclusive puts Green Lantern in the middle of a power play

This Far Sector exclusive puts Green Lantern in the middle of a power play

There are very few superhero comics with the cool factor of Far Sector, a sleek, sexy, and sophisticated sci-fi story that reinvigorates the Green Lantern concept. Written by N.K. Jemisin with art by Jamal Campbell and letterer Deron Bennett, Far Sector is all about the new, introducing a new Green Lantern and taking her to an alien world where the citizens’ emotions have been stripped away...

Carmen Maria Machado's The Low, Low Woods blends supernatural and mundane horror

Carmen Maria Machado's The Low, Low Woods blends supernatural and mundane horror

Just like Young Animal before it, the Hill House imprint from DC is proving to be a fascinating experiment, fostering comics that aren’t quite like what you find anywhere else. Helmed by Joe Hill of Locke & Key fame, the Hill House books are offering readers a handful of six-issue comics, each one distinct but with a clear overarching theme: horror. While many of the names attached to Hill...

Suicide Squad’s relaunch pairs deadly thrills with sharp political commentary

Suicide Squad’s relaunch pairs deadly thrills with sharp political commentary

Suicide Squad endures as a superhero concept because it’s built on internal conflict: between members of the titular team and the authority figures forcing them to work together. There are layers upon layers of character dynamics to explore as supervillains butt heads with their ethically dubious handlers bearing government connections—a link that allows Suicide Squad’s writers to explore the...

Terror brings two best friends together in this Low, Low Woods exclusive

Carmen Maria Machado has never written a comic before The Low, Low Woods, but you wouldn’t know after reading the first issue. The National Book Award finalist has taken to the medium exceptionally well in the new series from DC’s Hill House Comics imprint, partnering with artist Dani, colorist Tamra Bonvillain, and letterer Steve Wands for a surreal supernatural mystery in a city that is...

Childhood horror is inescapable in this The Dollhouse Family #3 exclusive

Childhood horror is inescapable in this The Dollhouse Family #3 exclusive

Vertigo Comics needed to die for its spirit to live again. DC’s mature readers imprint shuttered at the end of last year, but other lines like Black Label, Sandman Universe, Young Animal, and the newly created Hill House Comics fill the void with stories that offer fresh takes on existing DC IP along with new ideas rooted in fantasy, crime, and horror genres. Hill House Comics, curated by...

Alfred taunts the Dark Knight in this Batman’s Grave exclusive

Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch changed the superhero game when they debuted The Authority in 1999, bringing a widescreen cinematic aesthetic to the genre that would shape how superheroes were presented in the new millennium. 20 years later, Ellis and Hitch have reunited for The Batman’s Grave, a standalone 12-issue miniseries that spotlights how well these two creators work together.

Alan Moore’s daughter, Leah, defends his crankiness: “[T]he medium he adored was ruled by corrupt despots”

Alan Moore’s daughter, Leah, defends his crankiness: “[T]he medium he adored was ruled by corrupt despots”

Alan Moore’s reputation as a shakes-fist-at-cloud sort is a well-documented thing, one that’s come into conversation with increasing frequency as Damon Lindelof’s spiritual sequel (or “remix,” as he describes it) thrives in HBO’s Sunday night block. Moore is commonly called one of the greatest comic book writers of all time; while perhaps best known for Watchmen, which he co-created with...

The White Lantern traps the Dark Knight in this Batman Universe exclusive

The main line of Batman titles has been shrouded in darkness recently with the finale of Tom King’s Batman run and tie-ins to the “Year Of The Villain” event, but in the pages of Batman Universe, the Dark Knight has been on a much lighter adventure through space and time. Written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Nick Derington, colorist Dave Stewart, and letterer Troy Peteri, Batman...

DC's compelling new Green Lantern story is a genre-blending delight

DC's compelling new Green Lantern story is a genre-blending delight

At first glance, the most striking thing about Far Sector #1 is the artwork. That’s usually true of comic books, but it’s especially true of Jamal Campbell’s work on the cover and first few pages of this book. The design is bold and futuristic, refreshing for the Green Lanterns franchise and rooted in the changes made in the past few years. Campbell dresses Lantern Mullein in angular and...

A demonic Batman rises in this Creature Of The Night finale exclusive

The journey to Batman: Creature Of The Night #4 has been a long one. The series was originally announced in 2010 as a spiritual sequel to Kurt Busiek and Stuart Immonen’s Superman: Secret Identity, and health problems for Busiek and artist John Paul Leon resulted in a year-and-a-half delay between issues #3 and #4. But the series is well worth the wait, offering a chilling interpretation of...

Mecha Manta lets loose on Amnesty Bay in this Aquaman exclusive

Aquaman has not had an easy homecoming. After regaining his memory at the end of Kelly Sue DeConnick and Robson Rocha’s first arc on Aquaman, Arthur Curry has made his way back to Amnesty Bay, where he’s been greeted by old friends from the past, a very pregnant wife, and an archenemy with a major power upgrade. The Aquaman movie gave us a very Iron Man-inspired Black Manta, and this story...

A mysterious sickness spreads in this The Dreaming #15 exclusive

The Dreaming had a phenomenal first year as it expanded and remixed the mythology of The Sandman, and year two is shaping up to be even better. Last month’s The Dreaming #14 reunited writer Simon Spurrier with his Coda collaborator, artist Matias Bergara, spotlighting why this is one of the most exciting creative partnerships in comics right now with a clever standalone tale featuring...

DC’s Black Label goes high fantasy in this The Last God #1 exclusive

DC’s Black Label imprint has primarily focused on big-name characters like Batman, Superman, Harley Quinn, and the Joker since debuting last year, but that changes this week with The Last God, an original fantasy story that doesn’t appear to have any connections to the larger DC Universe. Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson with art by Riccardo Federici, colorists Sunny Gho and Dean White, and...

Joaquin Phoenix goes full Taxi Driver for the shallow but striking psychodrama of Joker

Joaquin Phoenix goes full Taxi Driver for the shallow but striking psychodrama of Joker

One of the more fiendishly clever choices Christopher Nolan made in his magisterial middle Batman movie, The Dark Knight , was to clown on the very idea of “motivation.” Heath Ledger’s unforgettable version of The Joker, a prowling nihilistic terrorist in rotting makeup, kept offering different explanations for the grotesque scar-tissue grin cut across his face—and it’s only on the second time...

Gotham City Monsters kicks off a spooky new creature feature for DC

Gotham City Monsters kicks off a spooky new creature feature for DC

Every year the arrival of fall heralds a rush of spooky comics, and sometimes it feels like the ongoing superhero titles get left behind in the rush to get out appropriately themed books. Graphic novels and one shot issues are a far easier prospect when it comes to holidays and events, so consider Gotham City Monsters the exception that proves this rule. Written by DC veteran Steve Orlando...
