DC's section in Previews for April 2006

Today's post, different from the last time I talked about DC's April solicits, is based on my reading of the Previews magazine, where I was talking about the online solicits before. Thought it might be a fun experiment to see how the experiences differ.

I did this with Marvel last Thursday, as well. And edited the post once Neil Kleid reminded me that he's got a story with Oeming in X-Men Unlimited #14.

*****

As I said, I'm interested in Man-Bat #1 for Mike Huddleston's invovlement, though it certainly helped to check out the preview pages. Anybody catch Bruce Jones' swipe of the second muder in Identity?

(Which, by the way, was an awesome movie.)

Still curious about Batman: Secrets #2, mostly to see Sam Kieth draw the Joker. The whole "the media are the true enemy" thing isn't psyching me up, but fuck it - Sam Kieth drawing the Joker.

Superman/Batman #26 probably has the highest different creators-to-page-count ratio I've ever seen. I'm into it just to see the Superman backup by Loeb and Tim Sale, who's one of my favorite artists in the biz right now.

I'm tentatively sold on Infinite Crisis, so I'll be picking up issue #7 to see how it all comes out. I just hope things get a bit more cohesive - right now I don't see how half the plot threads have anything to do with the main story being told, and it's frustrating me as a reader. The references are also going over my head a lot of the time (Flash got his powers from some weird "Speed Zone" or something? I thought he just got hit by lightning?), but enough cool shit is going on to keep me on board.

Jared's so psyched about Checkmate #1 that I'll likely pick up the first issue just to avoid getting my clock cleaned.

Hard Time Season Two is on the pull list, so I'll be excited to see where they're going with this fascinatingly creepy/confident, charming/evil new Cutter character in issue #5.

I don't know from Damion Scott, but I'll be getting Solo #10 just because I think the series is awesome.

I'm still a bit nervy about making it Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes, but the book hasn't let me down yet and #17 will be in my pull file.

Also, kinda neat to see that the two trades have matching layouts on the covers...

I'm following Seven Soldiers of Victory in the trades, so it's nice that they're bringing out volume 2 so quick.

I can't believe I'm not getting any of the WildStorm books. That used to be my favorite imprint around, what with Sleeper and all. Well, the revamp's coming up and I'll try to get back into it then.

Still enjoying DMZ, so I'll likely get #6 when it comes.

Bigby's back in Fables #48, they say, so I'm looking forward to that (as I do, honestly, every issue of the series).

Still happy to see a nice cheap Loveless trade coming so quick. Of course, the idea is to get me buying the singles, and I'm pretty commited to tradewaiting Brian Azzarello's work, but we'll see.

Oh, man. We're at Lucifer #73 already? Jesus, this is a great series. "I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leave," right?

I don't know that I have a place to put it at my apartment, but the image they're using for the Fables wall poster - James Jean's cover to issue #8 - is stunning.

Hmm. That wasn't quite as "different" as my responses to Marvel's online and print solicitations were. Well, tomorrow I start looking at Everyone Else, and believe you me, there's some awesome stuff coming. Check it out.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
    writers? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Kudos!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre
    talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos
    to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
