Beginning this May, fans of both comic books and animation will experience all-new stories set in the world of the iconic DC Animated series Justice League Unlimited, as DC presents an all-new DC Digital First series, Justice League Infinity.
DC Festival of Heroes: The Asian Superhero Celebration, is an incredible anthology spotlighting DC’s past, present and even future Asian super heroes, featuring some of the most dynamic Asian storytellers in and out of comics. Featuring an incredible cover by the team of DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee, and colorist Alex Sinclair, this anthology includes a foreword by activist and CNN and WSJ Online contributor Jeff Yang, a selection of tribute pinups of DC’s Asian super heroes, plus an awesome variant cover featuring Cassandra Cain by artist Stanley “Artgerm” Lau.
Social Media Platforms can be the most evil of tools when used by people of ill intent, Twitter being chief among them. However today, we Green Lantern fans have a chance to make it just a tad bit more pleasant, by voting of all things. You want Kyle Rayner? You want Kilowog? Of course you do. All you have to do is VOTE. Like right now! Something like late AF March Madness!
The following is a partial statement from Comic-Con International:
It is the policy of the organization to continue to closely monitor information from local and national healthcare officials as it pertains to the COVID-19 pandemic. Never could we have imagined what the world experienced in 2020 and continues to experience today. While we are buoyed by the rollout of the vaccine and the growing number of individuals being inoculated, it appears that July will still be too early to safely hold an in-person event of the magnitude of Comic-Con. For this reason, we have made the challenging decision to postpone Comic-Con 2021 as an in-person gathering until our 2022 dates, and once again hold this year’s celebration as the free online Comic-Con@Home. Unfortunately, the challenges of this past year and the multiple postponements of our two largest events have left us with limited financial resources, so this year the online experience will be reduced to a three-day event, spanning July 23-25, 2021.
The time has come! No, not for the infamous Snyder Cut, that’s out already. The time has come for us to take a glimpse into the future of our favorite ring slingers. Yes friend, its time for solicitations. Lets see whats in store for them, shall we?
