Do Ward Sutton and folks at the Village Voice read The Daily Cocca? You know I like to think so. Finally, there's proof. Via Graphic Policy: See 7 more designs at "Washington DC Reboot" via the Village Voice. We anticipated as much here on November 1. In related news, NPR basically endorsed Newt Gingrich yesterday, … Continue reading Ward Sutton and the Village Voice Illustrate The Daily Cocca? (I Did See Michael Musto on a Bike in Chelsea Once)
As you might recall, I really liked the social justice superheroics of Action Comics #1. Last night, I finally got around to reading Superman #1, Batman #1, and The Flash #1 and wanted to share my thoughts. Superman #1: Very ambitious. We have the struggles of new vs. old media, the problems with media conglomerates … Continue reading DC Reboot: Superman #1, Batman #1, Flash #1
Via Graphic Policy, this image is out and about today, but does it show the rebooted Justice League's full roster?: Who knows.

If you're here to read about the DC Comics reboot, you probably already know the news that's come out since my last Titans post: Bart Allen is Kid Flash (good).

Even if I'm misremembering … Continue reading Should DC Have Revisited “Titans Tomorrow” for the Superman Reboot/Redesign?
One of these pictures is awesome. One of them, despite my George Perez fandom, isn't. It's not Perez's fault. He's dealing with a redesigned Superman costume that isn't his, and the inker made the space above Supes' boots look gray/silver. Here's the overarching technical problem with the new suite: maybe it will work okay when … Continue reading Superman Pictures from “Action Comics” and “Superman” DC Reboots. Also, SuperEmoBoy.
This post is from 2011. As of 2018, it still gets new views. The Teen Titans, not to mention the entire DC Universe, have gone through many iterations since then. Why are fans able to accept that continuity is fluid when it comes to comic books, but not when it comes to properties like Star … Continue reading DC’s Superboy, Red Robin, and Kid Flash Reboot For New Teen Titans Book (And I Think of the 90s)
