The Roundup

Want to know what’s going on in your favorite comics this week?

ALL-STAR WESTERN #34 ends a 100+ issue run of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray penning the scarred western hero, SUPERMAN #34 introduces a new threat (or two!) to the Man of Steel, BODIES #2 continues Vertigo’s genre-bending time-travelling dead body thriller, the Masked Superman is unmasked in THE NEW 52: FUTURES END #17, and BATMAN/SUPERMAN #13 starts a new chapter in Greg Pak and Jae Lee’s run on the world’s finest superteam.

The Roundup: A Double Dose of Doomed

Usually finding yourself doomed twice in the same week would be a cause for serious concern rather than celebration. But then again, none of us are Superman. (No, not even that guy who keeps emailing us asking for an ongoing Beppo, the Super Monkey series and signing his emails Clark “Superman” Kent. Sorry to disappoint you, dude.)

The Roundup: A Dizzying Selection From Vertigo

San Diego Comic-Con is now behind us, and DC Comics certainly had a successful show. No matter where you looked in the convention center and beyond, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, the Flash and hundreds of other heroes and villains from the DC Universe were proudly on display. From morning to night, you could find them on comic covers, in movie and TV stills, in videogames, on toys, collectibles and clothing, and wandering around the aisles of the show floor and the streets of the Gaslamp District from morning to night.

The Roundup: These Kids are All Right

Why should the adults have all the fun? While here at DCComics.com, we tend to think of characters like Kal-El, Bruce Wayne, Diana of Themyscira and Hal Jordan as ageless, they’re clearly well over the legal drinking age. And that’s fine. It allows us to believably present Bruce Wayne as a brilliant entrepreneur and philanthropist overseeing a multi-billion dollar company when he’s not fighting crime, or Hal Jordan as a former test pilot who would be a logical candidate for a Green Lantern ring. There’s a level of drama that’s only possible when our characters are adults.

The Roundup: The Beginning of Forever

We’re getting things started with a BOOM! as the debut issue of Infinity Man and the Forever People hits stands. Issue #1 begins in the far recesses of outer space, in the floating city of New Genesis, but it doesn’t take long for the action to rocket to earth. Sorry, that’s inaccurate. It doesn’t take long for the action to BOOM TUBE to earth.

The Roundup: The Past is a Blast

How would we describe this week? Groovy, man, groovy.

This week Batman’s past and present collide in the best way possible with the release of BATMAN ’66 MEETS THE GREEN HORNET #1, the first print issue of the smash retro-era mashup brought to you by the remarkable creative team of Kevin Smith, Ralph Garman, Ty Templeton and Alex Ross.
