"Memorial"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Bruno Redondo
Inker: Juan Albarran
Cover: David Yardin

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

None of this issue makes a lot of sense, but neither does Injustice, for the most part. Harley's analysis of herself is merely an excuse to use her, due to her popularity, and fill as many panels with Quinn as possible. The Flash visiting the Rogues to pay his respects could be a strong moment, only readers aren't given any backstory as to the relationship Flash has with the Rogues in this universe, so that leaves those interested to assume it's equivalent to what has occurred in the DC Universe proper, where the Flash definitely wouldn't respect anything the Rogues had done, including attempting to kill him. The fight between Harley and Shazam won't go anywhere, green pill or not, as it's already set in video game stone what's going to occur. Don't believe me? Check issue #22 and come back here for a brief history on Captain Marvel, the hero erroneously labelled as Shazam, and for all the wrong reasons.

"Chapter 8"

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

The plot thickens, and well at that. Again, Gates is showing and proving that he can make the most of the serial format, delivering another well-crafted issue, and upping the ante for the readers return. Adventures of Supergirl packs more into its compressed format, than the average comic renders in three issues, and decompressed at that. Gates' previous run on Supergirl is overlooked as seminal runs go, but hopefully his current work on Adventures of Supergirl will establish him as the go to writer for the character. The only drawback to the story is the ball-and-chain in the form of Alex Danvers. Alex has too much time with Supergirl, sister or not, and it would refreshing to see Supergirl adventure with another supporting character. My personal preference would be Jimmy Olsen, if he's handled like his classic self, the Action Man adventurer, and less Billy Beefcake.

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

Adventures of Supergirl is what any writer should do to take advantage of a good situation. Supergirl fertile territory for storytelling, inasmuch as she has not quite been defined in comparison to the hero that inspired her, or other well-established heroes. Gates turns in a strong showing the Maid of Might, giving readers a remarkably confident, efficient, and intrepid Supergirl, one who is in control of her situation, as such as the aforesaid may attempt to spiral away from her. The best about this storyline is that it isn't over. Digital first comics were made for the serial format, and where print comics are decompressed to ridiculous proportions, Gates has been doing the opposite with Supergirl to stoke interest, entertain, and make readers come back for more... this reader, at the very least.

May 18, 2016: Geoff Johns Talks About "Hope and Optimism" for DC's CharactersPrint

DC Films

Earlier today we reported on the news that Geoff Johns and Jon Berg have been elevated to co-runners of the DC Films. Later in the day Geoff Johns greeted a group of journalists in Manhattan to talk about the DC brand and "Rebirth", but the reporters wanted to know about the story that broke earlier in the day via The Hollywood Reporter.

He said he couldn't confirm the story, but that "you can connect the dots." Even though he declined to directly address that topic, he was more than willing to talk about where he thinks the DC brand needs to go. One phrase came out of his mouth over and over again: "hope and optimism." Though Johns would never speak ill of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or its director, Zack Snyder - Johns is nothing if not loyal to the company that made him a star - it's crystal clear that his vision for DC looks a lot brighter than the much-maligned grimness Snyder provided earlier this year.

DC's nascent cinematic universe has so far depicted Superman as an angry god; a violent, alien entity that needs to be kept in check. This morning, Johns offered a vastly different take on the character's archetype. "I think people make a mistake when they say, 'Superman's not relatable because he's so powerful,'" he said. "I'm like, 'Are you kidding me? He's a farmboy from Kansas who moves to the city and just wants to do the best he can with what he's got.' That's the most relatable character in the world."

May 18, 2016: Geoff Johns to Co-Run DC FilmsPrint

Warner Bros. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg have been elevated to co-runners of the DC Universe of films.

    Current executive vp Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, DC's chief content officer who successfully launched the comics label's foray into television, will co-run DC Films, according to multiple sources.

    Berg was already working on BvS, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman and Justice League. He also is a conduit to Ben Affleck, having worked with the actor-filmmaker on Argo and Live by Night, the crime thriller Affleck recently wrapped as director, writer and star for the studio.

    Comics writer-turned-exec Johns, meanwhile, masterminded the ascension of shows such as Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl and is the writer behind DC's upcoming Rebirth, the publishing side's reboot of its titles that will play out over the summer months. He is not leaving DC, according to sources, but adding film to his portfolio.

"The Final Days of Superman" - Part 6: "The Great Pretender"

Writer: Peter J. Tomasi
Penciller: Dale Eaglesham and Scot Eaton
Inker: Dale Eaglesham and Wayne Faucher

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    If this issue of ACTION COMICS taught me anything it is that you don't threaten the Pre-Flashpoint Superman's family.

    Because he will jack you up if you do.

    All kidding aside this was a great issue. Actually this is a great story but I really loved this issue. I have enjoyed the LOIS AND CLARK series that Dan Jurgens has been writing so seeing more of that Superman is fine by me. Is that biased? Am I happy to see "My Superman" back in the comics? Yes. Absolutely and I make no apologies for that. The reason for that, beyond coming from a different generation as a reader, is that DC is playing to both sides of the equation. Older readers, like me, get to see a version of the Superman and Lois we grew up with in the comics and we get to see their story continue. The idea of Lois and Clark having a kid is something I always wanted to see, so it's awesome to finally get to see that play out. The other side of the coin is that DC isn't simply setting the clock back and dropping us back into the Pre-Flashpoint/Post-Crisis world. The older Superman is going to have to learn to live in a new world and that's intriguing.

May 17, 2016: DC Entertainment Introduces New DC LogoPrint

DC Logos New Logo Design Celebrates DC Brand's Past, Present and Future

Logo to Debut on May 25 Release of 'DC Universe: Rebirth Special #1' by Geoff Johns

DC Entertainment announced a new identity and logo for its iconic DC brand. The new DC logo is a mark that leverages over 80 years of heritage with an eye toward the future.

"While comics continue to be the heart and soul of DC, the brand has evolved to now stand for powerful storytelling across so many different forms of media. DC is home to the greatest Super Heroes and Super-Villains, and the new logo has the character and strength to stand proudly alongside DC's iconic symbols," stated Amit Desai, DC Entertainment Senior Vice President of Marketing and Global Franchise Management.

"The launch of the new logo is the perfect tribute to DC's legacy, exciting future and most importantly, our fans."

The new logo will debut on the cover of the highly-anticipated DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH SPECIAL #1 comic book written by Geoff Johns releasing May 25 and available in comic book shops and digitally. REBIRTH represents the next chapter in the ongoing saga of the DC Universe, mixing traditional values and a modern aesthetic.

"I'm very proud that REBIRTH will be the first comic book published with the new DC logo." stated Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer. "To me, REBIRTH and the new DC logo are built on what's come before while looking to what will come tomorrow. I can't wait for people to see it on the cover."

The new DC branding will be introduced immediately on various digital platforms, including DC websites, social media channels, DC All Access webseries, and DC All Access app and will continue to rollout worldwide across all DC content and products. One of the many benefits of the new logo design is its versatility to showcase DC's iconic and timeless characters and stories across all media. Look for the new logo to come to life at key events in the coming months.

The new identity and logo were developed in partnership with Pentagram, the world's largest independent design consultancy.
