‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ Animated Adaptation Coming To Home Video In 2016
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Batman: The Killing Joke

Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced on Friday that they will be producing three new direct-to-video animated features featuring Batman for release in 2016. With Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice poised to explode onto the big screen next March, there will no doubt be another resurgence of interest in Dark Knight-related merchandise.

Among the three new animated movies coming our way next year will be an adaptation of what is arguably one of the greatest stories of the Caped Crusader ever told, Batman: The Killing Joke.

J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman Walk Off DC’s ‘Batwoman’
Hunter Camp   |  

Batwoman by J.H. Williams, III

Citing “editorial interference,” series creators J.H. Williams, III and W. Haden Blackman have decided to leave one of DC’s most popular titles, Batwoman, with issue #26.

This is the latest bit of drama in regards to creators walking off of DC books, including creators like Andy Diggle leaving Action Comics, Justin Jordan leaving Superboy, and Joshua Hale Fialkov leaving Green Lantern Corps, which all seemingly had to do with editorial edicts. But Batwoman has also had issues since her amazing run on Detective Comics with Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III on creative duties. Rucka and Williams were intended to come back with a Batwoman ongoing series that was re-imagined as a zero issue tie-in to Batman Incorporated by Williams, Blackman, and Amy Reeder. This was subsequently halted and remade as a “New 52” title.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “The Garden State Stud” Henchman21 and “The Pencil-Neck” MK2FAC3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of September 14, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

No jokes this week. It’s all about serious business. I want to throw out that a lot of great DC books are coming out this week and I chose one, and Chris chose another. But it’s worth noting that I am really looking forward to Batwoman and Demon Knights, as well. We’re making a real attempt here to put a spotlight on a lot of either the lesser known, lower selling books from publisher, or straight up creator owned works. We’re all excited about this gigantic DC Relaunch, whether we love them or not, it’s exciting. But it’s extremely important for all of you to know that there are other books out there that could really use the attention, so if you’ve never listened to us before, please do so here. It’s a great time for comics, and it’s time for everybody to expand their horizons.

DC Relaunch: New DC Comics (Week Three)
Hunter Camp   |  

relaunch banner

As most of you may know by now, DC Comics is relaunching their entire line of comics this Fall alongside a day and date digital comics initiative. What you might not know, however, is that it all started two weeks ago with the releases of the last issue of DC’s summer event Flashpoint, and the beginning of the new universe with Justice League #1.

This Wednesday is the second big week of releases. I’m picking up a lot of these books, and there are still a lot of books to look forward to in these upcoming weeks, as well as plenty that you and I will probably want to stay away from for varying reasons. So, in the order of kindness and assignments from my editor, I will be breaking down each title with their creators, what they’re about, and what you can expect from each of the new books. And, guess what? I’m not in love with a lot of the decisions that they’ve made, so this should be fun!

Every Tuesday through the end of September, I will be writing another installment so you know when you can get yourself to the store, or to your mobile app, and purchase your new #1s from DC Comics! Also, it’s worth noting, dear reader, that since you’re coming to the game a little late, you can’t be guaranteed an issue at the comic book store, so call ahead to see if they have it. Or if you go the store and they don’t have any copies left of these DC books, you could always buy an indie comic like 27 The Second Set, Baltimore: The Curse Bells, Pigs, and Moon Girl, which all come out this week, coincidentally. There’s more to comics than just superheroes from DC and Marvel, you know?

But that’s probably why you’re here, and now that I’ve gotten the indie comics alternative plug out of the way, let’s talk about the universe that I’d rather live in, the DC Universe!
