DC Cancelling 13 Titles

30461GLCORPs-lg[1]

With the release of its March solicitations, DC has revealed that it will cancel 13 titles this spring, shipping the last issues in March before the two-month Convergence event that will cover the period of DC’s move to California.  That removes a quarter of the DC Universe titles, clearing the decks for a major retooling of the line when the regular DCU titles return in June.

The titles represent a surprisingly wide range of sales, from Star Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie, which sold only 7,546 copies in November, to Green Lantern Corps, which sold 34,109.  The thirteen titles, with their November sell-in numbers to comic stores are:

34,109   Green Lantern Corps
30,907   Arkham Manor
25,654   Red Lanterns
21,377   Secret Origins
19,709   World’s Finest
16,840   Swamp Thing
15,859   Aquaman and the Others
15,795   Batwoman
15,681   Green Lantern: New Guardians
15,097   Trinity of Sin
11,416   Klarion
  9,350   Infinity Man and the Forever People
  7,546   Star-Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie

George A. Romero to Write Zombie Comic for Marvel

24169george-a-romero-8_MD[1]

Director George A. Romero’s 1968 film Night of the Living Dead single-handedly ushered in the modern era of zombie movies and kickstarted a major career in horror movies.  So it is pretty big news when Romero announces that he is writing a zombie comic book for Marvel.  It’s kind of like having Steven Spielberg write a comic about a cute and cuddly extraterrestrial who just wants to go home.

In an interview with Twitchfilm, Romero fessed up that he "was writing a comic for Marvel," saying "I am writing it now, but its plot is a secret."  Pressed for any and all details Romero would only say: "Well, I can tell you that it won’t involve any of their on-going characters, there will be no superheroes. But their will be zombies."

Romero is no stranger to writing comics.  He adapted an un-produced screenplay for the DC Comics’ miniseries Toe Tags, which was released in 2004-2005.

Five Reasons Why You Should Be Reading The Walking Dead

125663_436904_3[1]
Sina Grace is the writer of The Li’l Depressed Boy, and is the long time editor for Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic book. No one knows Kirkman’s zombie escapades better than Sina, and for this reason we tasked him with naming five reasons why YOU should be reading The Walking Dead!

1.  Amazing artwork!
Charlie Adlard is a master storyteller using negative space and dense line work to his advantage. He can draw drama, action, gore, and is able to create iconic  characters like no other.

2. Characters you’ll love!
The nice thing about an ongoing survival horror is that you get time to fall in love with the characters…only for Robert to kill them off!  I can’t pick a favorite character, because the entire lot of survivors are nuanced, and bad-ass zombie killers.

3. No compromises, no sharks.
The Walking Dead is a creator-owned comic, meaning Robert has no one to answer to when he writes any given issue. There’s no corporate entity enforcing rules, and at no point has the book ever jumped the shark, which, let’s face it: a lot of zombie series end up going the way of nuked fridges!

4. There’s a lot of it!
If you’re the kind of fan who gets immersed in a series when hooked, then you’ll love the fact that there are over 100 issues ofThe Walking Dead, and they’re collected in two brick compendiums. If you’re more into nicer tomes, the series is collected in so many ways, for all types of fans.

5. The zombies aren’t even the scariest aspect.
Just you wait and see how awful we get once an apocalypse is brewing… You’ll understand when you meet the Governor!
