Man, comics really are changing these days. And to me, that’s exciting. Marvel kicked things off this week with the first proper issue of Secret Wars, an issue which said goodbye to not one but two entire universes of stories. That event is still in its infancy however, while DC’s muddled Convergence has already hit the halfway mark. Opinions are divided on that event, but one things for certain: A very different DC Universe will emerge. And you can preview that brave new world, right here.
DC have revealed ten standalone comics, that feature everything from Starfire’s new costume, America’s future teenage president and the new Batman. I’m not spoiling the events of Endgame right here, so take my word for it, it’s a doozy. Biggest highlight for me? The fact that Hitman is getting a spin-off, starring the members of Section 8. HEH HEH. BUENO! BUENO EXCELLENTE! HEH HEH!
There’s a new status quo between Batman and the GCPD, especially in regards to Harvey Bullock. Harvey offers a deal to Batman, and we meet the new addition to Harvey’s task force-Renee Montoya!
