DC has announced their shameless pillaging of one of the finest stories ever told today with the unveiling of Before Watchmen. Pretty disgusting stuff, but fuck it shouldn’t be surprising.

Welcome to the newly minted (and perhaps not staying named as such) Comics We’re Buying This F**king Week. Figured I’d cut the bullshit. Herein us guys and gals of the sequential funny book time can share the comic books we’re digging on in a given week. It’s a pretty exciting week, as I’m getting a new dose of Wood to engulf. Always a sucker for the Wood. (And infantile puns. It’s been a long day, forgive me.)

There’s a cavalcade of new pictures from Avengers courtesy of Empire.

Spending Friday evening on Twitter like a true Beast of Dorkey and I came across this Matt Fraction tweet. I’m hoping he’s serious, since Casanova makes my tits hard like nobody’s business. Who knows though? Dude is generally hilarious and off-the-cuff. Could be a total feint. Fraction is one of my favorite writers, and if I got to see him open up that unique mind of his across another self-generated universe in addition to Casa it would be too good to be true.
A Fox affiliate has come out swinging over the totally tit-sational blood bath universe of DC comic books after its relaunch or something. Well uh, what the fuck. This has been a problem in comic books for….ever. Forever.
DC has officially unveiled the “Secret Identity” logos that were leaked earlier this week courtesy of trademark filings. Oh! Now it all makes sense. The logo is “peeling away” to reveal the character’s identity and..and..vomit.

Variant Covers. This is the venue for me to wank to the comic books dropping in a particular week that I’m interested in. It’s generally capes heavy, because when I was younger I myself was heavy. As always, you folk are encouraged to share the shit you’re checking out this week. Peep the deets at ComicsList. It’s show and tell without the creepy Uncle and lollipops. Bummer about the lollipops, agreed.
Hey, I’ll have whatever Dan Buckley is drinking. Or reading. Or meditating upon. Marvel’s president and publisher is pretty fucking tired of us goons and bozos proclaiming the end of the comics industry.
DC! You’re always changing man. You just dropped a new logo like seven years ago, and now you’re already filing for a new one? And it’s way ugly? Settle down, I hardly know you these days.
