This November, a surprisingly unlikely crossover will be occurring between IDW and DC Comics. As announced at San Diego Comic Con, Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be meeting up to kick some serious shell.



Boston Comic Con’s Friday panel lineup included a special Batman Panel featuring Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. If you are a current DC reader, chances are you are reading the New 52 Batman. Batman has been one of DC’s strongest and most consistently great series, and fans were given the chance to learn a bit more behind the two people who make it all happen:

At San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, director Zack Snyder shared the first photos of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Finally getting some much deserved screen time in Batman v. Superman, Wonder Woman is one of many comic woman who takes being a heroine to the next level.


“Dark Knight. Caped Crusader. World’s Greatest Detective… poster boy for what a bad childhood can do to you,” call him what you may but after seventy five years Batman’s legacy expanded world-wide and today is the day to celebrate the caped crusader.

Bruce Wayne is looking pretty great for his 75th, no bad knees or graying hair seen here, but rather Bat fans nationwide gather to celebrate the winged hero decades after his debut.


Before Batman, there was Gotham.

Fox looks to reveal a new chapter in the Batman saga with the pre-commissioner life of James Gordon. The network seems to be trying to sell a Batman series without Batman? Part crime drama, part superhero origins, fans get to see their favorite icons in the corrupt streets of Gotham City, from The Penguin to Catwoman and Two-Face and The Joker…. as teenagers.


Warner Brothers finally confirmed the rumors—the Justice League is coming to the big screen. Either in 2018 or summer 2017 (those details are still debatable), the film will be following the Man of Steel sequel in 2016. Greg Silverman, Warner Brothers Pictures president referred to the Man of Steel sequel as Superman Vs. Batman, so intentionally or not it seems we also have an official spoiler for the title.

The Justice League film will be directed by Zack Snyder, starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Henry Cavill as Superman. Currently, the production for Superman Vs. Batman suggests there’ll be a possible overlap in filming to accommodate dual production schedules (Cavil is probably going to awfully tired of spandex after all that).


Every Monday on G&C I’ll be previewing the new comics I’m most looking forward to in the coming week. These are the comics that I expect will be fun, exciting, and worth your monies. If you think I’ve missed anything, leave a note in the comment section and let me know what you’re eagerly anticipating. Here’s my top three, and then a short list of other books to be aware of.

Boston Comic Con 2013’s most popular guest was, without a doubt, Scott Snyder.  We had the opportunity to ask Snyder a few quick questions about his current work on Batman, currently in its ‘Zero Year’ story arc:


Thbest of 2012

Now that we are officially in 2013, and to keep up with our ‘Best of 2012’ blogs, I wanted to take a look back at the video games and comic books that made 2012 so awesome.  In 2012, we saw some great video games, as well as some really big comic book events.  The Wii U was released, DC’s New 52 is now in full force, and Marvel NOW! has continued to throw out some really big titles.  Here is my breakdown of the ‘Best of 2012’:

In the wake of the successful superhero movies and other pop culture phenomena, LEGO followed suite by releasing its line of superhero play sets earlier this year.  In my opinion, these sets are a fantastic move on LEGO’s part.  What a great way to bring the superhero culture to a different industry.  The mini-figures area incredibly well-done.  The likeness to the real thing is uncanny.  However, these sets have been immensely popular.  The sets feature Marvel’s Avengers, DC characters such as Batman and Superman, and even the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have made their way into LEGO form.  The sets have been selling very well, so be sure to pick them up if you are interested!  Below, you will find images featuring some of the sets:
