DC Comics multiverse map

“Multiversity” and Grant Morrison’s map of the DC multiverse

At the recent San Diego Comic-Con, we got some news detailing information about Grant Morrison’s upcoming series “Multiversity,” which promises to take a current look at the DC Comics multiverse. Besides this interview with Morrison giving more details about the series (why can’t that Capt. Marvel book be an actual ongoing?), attendees at the show also got a guidebook with a map detailing the multiverse. Fortunately for the 99.9% of people that didn’t or couldn’t attend SDCC, Entertainment Weekly‘s republished the map on their website in…

Keith White

Minorities in cartoons: Keith White

This week’s minorities in cartoons entry is Keith White, a minor supporting character in the Superman comics. Keith first appeared in “Superman: Man of Steel” #1 in 1991, and was created by Louise Simonson. Keith was introduced as a young boy sent to live in a Metropolis orphanage after his mother, suffering from AIDS-related complications, was unable to continue caring for him. One day, while wandering underground, Keith was caught and kidnapped by “Underworlders,” genetic experiments-gone-wrong (long story) who were living underneath Metropolis. Telling Keith they were…

Yet another round of comics sexism: Janelle Asselin, “Teen Titans” and online backlash

Other than Amazon’s purchase of Comixology, the biggest comics topic online in the past week’s been yet another embarrassing round of sexism by a vocal segment of comic fans. To summarize: Janelle Asselin, a contributor to Comic Book Resources and comic creator, wrote a critique of the cover to the upcoming reboot/issue #1 of “Teen Titans.” (Yes, they just rebooted it for the “New 52″ three years ago, I know.) The cover in question is shown to the right. Along with the bad looking costumes…

“Adventures of Superman” digital-first series has been canceled

Yes, you read the subject line correctly: DC’s quietly announced that their digital-first weekly Superman anthology series “Adventures of Superman” has been canceled, as of today’s issue, issue #51. Its replacement? A new comic based on a video game, in this case “Infinite Crisis.” For the past year, “Adventures” (along with the also-axed “Superman Family Adventures”) has been my favorite New 52-era Superman title. Avoiding or ignoring everything about the New 52, this series featured classic-style Superman stories, with most of the cast (Lois, Jimmy,…

DC Comics single issues now available on Google Play

News came a day or so ago that Google Play, Google’s digital media store, has started to sell DC Comics’ single issue comics. While Google Play’s been selling some of DC’s trade paperbacks for awhile, it hasn’t done such for singles until now. DC’s been selling their singles on the Nook and Kindle stores, as well as digital comics giant Comixology, which will continue, of course. I’d been hoping for awhile to see DC’s singles sold on Google Play, so this is welcome news. Marvel’s…
