WonderCon attendees got chills when Vertigo announced a new American Vampire spinoff this weekend that will be set in Canada and boast an exciting script co-written by Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire.
We were at WonderCon this weekend and certainly revealed plenty of great stuff during our panels, but we’re pretty sure Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire are a little busy to be cooking up silly spinoffs and that Batman would fail to see the humor in letting Alfred E. Neuman anywhere near the Batcave.
Yes, in honor of April 1st (which also happens to be Alfred E. Neuman’s birthday), both DCComics.com and VertigoComics.com were given fake homepage slides. So whether you were fooled by DC Comics’ promise of a new Robin or Vertigo’s Canadian Vampire announcement, congratulations. You’ve been had.
But don’t sweat it. April Fool’s Day is supposed to be fun, and that’s all this little stunt was about. Even better, we’re not about to stop. There’s plenty of April Foolery to be had in comic shops this month. Why, have you seen our 13 MAD variant covers?
You haven’t?! Well, you can look for them gracing some of your favorite DC COMICS – THE NEW 52 titles all month long. Or you can just click here to see them all.
On behalf of all of us at DC Entertainment, have a happy April 1st!

The highly anticipated sequel to the #1 New York Times best-selling graphic novel SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, this new original graphic novel reunites acclaimed writer J. Michael Straczynski (BEFORE WATCHMEN, BRAVE AND THE BOLD, BABYLON 5) and superstar artist Shane Davis (GREEN LANTERN, SUPERMAN/BATMAN).
In SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, VOL. 2, a young Clark Kent, while slightly more settled in Metropolis from when we last left him, is still struggling to find his footing both as a reporter and as his superhero alter-ego, Superman. When a powerful new villain threatens Metropolis and drains him of all his powers, Superman will learn for the first time what it means to be vulnerable -- in other words, what it means to be truly human.
