DC

Story by J.M. DeMatteis and Bruce Timm, Script by J.M. DeMatteis, Art by Matthew Dow Smith

Aug 20, 2015 Comic Books Web Exclusive

Justice League: Gods and Monsters - Batman #1 is perhaps the least compelling of the three one-shot comics that set up the characters appearing in the new straight-to-DVD/Blu-ray animated movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters. More

Aug 19, 2015 Comic Books Web Exclusive

DC has a great history of alternate universe versions of their characters. Sure Marvel had their fun What If? comics in the '70s, '80s, and '90s that presented different scenarios for their characters (starting with issue 1's "What if Spider-Man joined The Fantastic Four"), but DC has the multiverse.

DC

Written by David F. Walker, Art by Ivan Reis

Jul 29, 2015 Comic Books Web Exclusive

Cyborg returns to S.T.A.R. labs following his death and regeneration at the end of Convergence, and his debut issue is a mixed bag of sci-fi weirdness and mopey characterization.  More

Jul 21, 2015 Comic Books Issue #53 - April/May 2015 - Tame Impala

To all things there must be an ending-although the end of Fables makes it quite clear that the story goes on and on and on, as far as readers' own imaginations can take them. More

Justice League 3001 #1

DC

Written by Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis, Art by Howard Porter

Jul 03, 2015 Comic Books Web Exclusive

Justice League 3001 is a blast from the past, set in the future. Veteran DC Comics readers old enough to remember the Justice League International series of the late 1980s—or those who bought the reprinted, collected trades much more recently—surely recall the light-hearted, humorous take on the universe's greatest heroes employed by writing duo Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis. More

Martian Manhunter #1

DC

Written by Rob Williams, Art by Eber Ferreira and Eddy Barrows

Jul 03, 2015 Comic Books Web Exclusive

For all his manifold powers—strength, intangibility, shape-shifting, flight, telepathy, and on and on—J'onn J'onzz, aka the Martian Manhunter, is one of DC's more unfortunately overlooked heroes. Frequent Justice League stalwart (and the eternal voice of reason in the fantastic Justice League cartoon of the early 2000s), J'onn doesn't get nearly as much playtime in the DC universe as he ought to, which is why it's so great to have a new Martian Manhunter series on shelves. More

Batman/Superman #21

DC

Written by Greg Pak, Art by Ardian Syaf

Jul 03, 2015 Comic Books Web Exclusive

At the end of Convergence, both Batman and Superman are starting from zero. Superman's lost all his powers, and his identity is now public knowledge. Bruce Wayne is apparently dead, and Batman has transformed from the brooding vigilante to a super-cop in high tech gear.  More

Detective Comics #41

DC

Written by Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul, Art by Francis Manapul

Jul 02, 2015 Comic Books Web Exclusive

With DC's latest overhaul, Batman is dead again and someone else has stepped up to take on the mantle of the dark knight. There was no battle for the cowl—or, in this case, the robo-bunny-bat-armor—but rather a strategic operation carried out by the Gotham police department.  More

Taking a look at the inside of S.T.A.R. Labs from an intern's perspective is pretty cool. More
