2) Comic Book News

  • He-Man – In July, DC Comics is launching a brand new, six-issue He-Man and the Masters of the Universe comic, trying to attract a whole new audience to those once familiar characters while still retaining the fandom of those who already loved it. Written by James Robinson with art by Philip Tan, the comic will update the concepts behind the toys for a modern audience.   In the new comic, the evil Skeletor has already taken over the world, and Eternia’s heroes have forgotten their heroic nature. A character called the “Sorceress” awakens He-Man to his true purpose, and he embarks on a quest to restore the rest of the group.
  • Devil’s Due Publishing is planning both a return to publishing and payment of their existing debt to creators, according to a statement released by company founder Josh Blaylock.
  • Now dubbed “Devil’s Due Entertainment,” details of their publishing slate are still vague at this time, with Blaylock stating his intentions for a “small roster of high quality projects.” The Devil’s Due website lists upcoming projects including Yumiko: Curse of the Merch Girl (produced with hip-hop artist Murs), graphic novel Mercy Sparx and prose novel When the Devil’s Bills Came Due.
  • Avengers movie premiere
  • Young Justice Invasion began this week, with lots of enthusiasm and excitement.
