The lines at conventions can easily become what can only be described as silly. If you ever see me at one of these gatherings remind me to tell you about the Flashpoint Zoom Action Figure line up. It’s one of my favourites.
Speaking of Flashpoint and lineups, today is the day! Flashpoint #5 and Justice League #1 officially kick off the new status quo of the DCU.
Regardless of what you think of the DC New 52 Relaunch, you have to admit it’s cool to see such a buzz within the industry and to have the attention of so many outside of it as well.
Will the new DCU stand?
Will the new DCU fall?
Most importantly: How do Wonder Woman’s pants (or lack of pants) fit into everything?
Either way, it’s an exciting time to be reading comics and hopefully amongst the lineup of the New 52 lineup there might be something that sparks your interest. Or, at the very least, something that turns you off so much you buy a comic from another publisher. After all, every comic someone buys and finds enjoyable helps the industry just that little bit more.
Today’s enjoyable page was lined up by the talented Donald Poquiz:
Donald Poquiz earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Arts from the University of California in San Diego and jumped into comics two years ago. He is currently working on his food and comic hybrid site Mochi Thoughts. You may have seen his illustrations for children’s books and educational art online as well as guest art on various comics like Hijinks Ensue, Capes & Babes and Addanac City to name a few. More recently his entry for the Fantastic Four 50th Anniversary made the cut for the San Diego Comic Con 2011 Souvenir Book.
Go buy comics and we’ll see you here on Friday!
