Bands like Alestorm I guess would be considered "pirate metal" because all they do is sing about drinking and being a pirate, really more of a fad than anything else. I mean there is a band called Mac Sabbath that sings about McDonalds food, I don't think they would qualify as another genre of metal haha, "fast food metal".

Looks like his creator owned stuff will be moved to a new publisher.

Even if the series is supposed to be fairly serious, that guy needs to be a caricature of the superhero genre. For reals.

Well, I quickly thumbed through Doomsday Clock #1 and put it back on the shelves. Should GL appear in a future issue I might have to make the tough decision, but for now I'm happy to pass on this one.

Honestly I'm kind of burned out on big events; I'm more excited about GL Earth 1.

11/27/17 - ....and I have to eat the crow because I really liked Doomsday Clock #1, even though it as none of the subtle nuances of the original, any thematic undertone is pretty much spelled out for the reader.

Morrison did an AMA over on reddit, biggest comic takeaway seems to be that Multiversity Too is tabled for now and his only comic work on the horizon are Wonder Woman: Earth One and Arkham Asylum 2.

Kate Durre (editor at DC) lost her house in the recent LA fires, there's a GoFundMe setup for her and her husband.

Dan DiDio on DC’s 2017: “We’re Always Trying to Be a Little Bit Better”
Quote:
Somebody asked, “What’s going on with Shazam/Captain Marval?” You said, “Big plans, don’t worry.” I’ve interviewed you twice, now. You’ve said, “Big plans, don’t worry.”

Now I understand that obviously things come in waves, things come and go, but it seems to me like this is a marquees character that we really haven’t seen a lot of.

I’m not going to ask when Shazam is happening, because I know that’s a question that I can’t possibly get an answer to. I’m just curious as to where your mind goes, or not just you but where the DC mind goes with a character like that. How do you balance finding the right story versus letting somebody sit on the shelf, maybe for too long?


DD: In this particular case with Shazam, we have the right team, we’re just waiting for them to be available. That’s one of the cases there. With a lot of this stuff, it’s interesting with characters like Shazam, and you know what, there’s a couple of books that constantly come up, Shazam, Legion of Super-Heroes, and Justice Society of America.

A couple of those are actually tied to an event story that’s taking place right now, and hopefully we’ll be able to come out of that in a way that gives it a lift, and hopefully brings new attention and new eyes to those books so they can live a long, healthy life.

With Shazam, we’re really just waiting for one particular creative team to come free. They’ve expressed so much interest in it that we’re just holding it for them until that period of time.

That's the same article Trey was linking everyone to like he was right on the money 'bout Legion of Superheroes and JSA getting titles in the present day. LOL

Landmark 1,000th Issue Features Jim Lee Cover Revealing New Costume

Brian Michael Bendis Debuts First Story for DC

DC Veteran Writer Marv Wolfman to Script Story Based On Unpublished Art by Golden and Silver Age Icon Curt Swan

All-Star Lineup of Contributors Includes Richard Donner, Geoff Johns, Peter J. Tomasi, Pat Gleason, Dan Jurgens, Brad Meltzer, Louise Simonson, Jerry Ordway, Tom King, Scott Snyder and More

(BURBANK, CA) – (January 19, 2018) – DC is going all-out to celebrate the one-thousandth issue of ACTION COMICS—the longest continually published comic book of its kind in history, the series that introduced Superman to the world and the title that launched the superhero genre. The Jim Lee-drawn cover features a new costume that integrates a variety of classic and new elements, including the Man of Steel’s trademark red trunks.

“ACTION COMICS #1000 represents a watershed moment in the history of not just comic books, but entertainment, literature and pop culture,” said Lee. “There’s no better way to celebrate Superman’s enduring popularity than to give him a look that combines some new accents with the most iconic feature of his classic design.”

Available at comics retailers and digitally on April 18, ACTION COMICS #1000 features the DC debut of acclaimed writer Brian Michael Bendis in a 10-page Superman story featuring art by DC publisher and celebrated artist Jim Lee. This milestone issue will also include two 15-page stories from two of DC’s current and most popular talent teams: SUPERMAN writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Pat Gleason, as well as ACTION COMICS writer and artist Dan Jurgens.

“The one-thousandth issue of ACTION COMICS is an incredible milestone in pop culture and a testament to the vision of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster,” said DC publisher Dan DiDio. “Without this book, along with Siegel and Shuster’s fertile imaginations and boundless creativity, the superhero’s place in literature may have been wildly different, if not altogether nonexistent.”

This must-have collector’s item comic book will also feature previously unpublished art from Curt Swan, whose dynamic, iconic style many consider the definitive look for the Man of Steel throughout comics’ Golden and Silver Ages. Acclaimed DC writer Marv Wolfman will script a story based on this never-before-seen content. In addition, the comic will include a collection of memorable bonus stories from some of the most celebrated names in comics and entertainment.

Contributors to this once-in-a-lifetime issue include legendary Superman movie director Richard Donner and New York Times best-selling writer Geoff Johns, with art by Olivier Coipel. Other contributing creative teams will include Paul Dini with José Luis García-López; Tom King with Clay Mann and Jordie Bellaire; Brad Meltzer with John Cassaday and Laura Martin; Louise Simonson with Jerry Ordway; Scott Snyder with Tim Sale and more to be announced.This celebratory comic book is just the beginning; this milestone will be recognized across the DC superhero line for the month of April with a series of Superman-themed variant covers and even more to come. Check out the website at www.dccomics.com or the DC YouTube channel for the latest news regarding Krypton’s last son and his elevation to pop culture icon.

^That number milestone (which is a really cool one) will always be tainted by the fact that they broke the sequence in the New 52.

DC never should have killed the numbering on those 4 titles. And there WILL come a day when DC cheats by restoring Batman and Superman as those titles get close to their big anniversary issues.

Still, it's great to see Superman in a costume that's super close to his real one. This pleases me.
