May 27, 2015: DC Sneak Peek at June's "Superman" and "Superman/Wonder Woman"Print

For the fourth week in a row, DC Comics has released more 10-page sneak peeks for a number of their June comic books, including "Superman", "Superman/Wonder Woman" and "Justice League".

Below, you can read original, eight-page standalone stories for these comic books. These aren't excerpts from the June issues - rather they're original short stories that set up what awaits you next month. Enjoy!

Superman
Clark Kent just wants to keep a low profile. But that's easier said than done when enemies from Superman's past won't leave the most powerful being on the planet alone. Will Clark Kent/Superman ever get the peace and quiet he's looking for? And will the cost at which it comes be worth it?

May 27, 2015: "Convergence" Finale Changes the DC MultiversePrint

With the 8th and final issue of the "Convergence" saga released today, the conclusion to this 2-month event appears to have dramatic effects on the DC Multiverse heading into June.

IGN.com has published an interesting article which delves into the possible ramifications brought about by "Convergence", with two splash pages showcasing the DC multiverse as it now exists.

Multiverse

Multiverse

    These images were accompanied by this dialogue from the character Telos - "They have done it. Reality is resetting, stabilizing. Each world has evolved, but they all still exist." The takeaway seems to be that DC isn't permanently bringing back the old worlds and characters that featured in Convergence, but that these characters continue to live on in new forms. That said, Telos' dialogue could also be taken to mean that the old worlds do still exist in some tangible form.

    So what does all of this mean for DC now? On one hand, Convergence appears to be the final chapter for these pre-New 52 characters. Thanks to Convergence, the classic DC Universe has now evolved into the New 52 universe and the torch has been passed. Between this series and Multiversity, the new DC multiverse has been firmly established.

    It's quite hard to separate personal affection for Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes, with what was given in these two issues. This tie-in suffers from an overall lack of care, creativity, basic love of the characters. Superboy and the Legion haven't been a fixture for some time, and doing a story with them needs to tap into the energy that was produced by their dynamic, and not merely nostalgia. Two different writers on two different issues is a far cry from the work that's been on other tie-ins, such as Convergence: Superman or Convergence: Shazam! It gives the notion that this book was just one of several, and if that's the case, then there's little point in investing in this story, and it begs the question: who is the story supposed to service? Moore's writing is stronger than what was given in issue #1, but it's not enough to rescue a tale that does little more than tread water. There are many a great Legion story, and more reasons than not to have Superboy be a part of that mix, but this sadly, is not one of them.

Released Digitally: May 19, 2015

"Vengeance is Mine"

Inker: Matt Haley
Cover: Art Thibert and Thomas Mason

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

    In terms of the Regime Superman/Montoya donnybrook, that was actually entertaining, though it might be the aftereffect of having seen Mad Max: Fury Road after breaking night. Montoya's despondency comes across very well, and does go some distances towards justifying her actions and excusing the nonsensical decision that she makes. It's questionable that she would be able to relapse on alcohol, as taking the super-pill should make her immune to the effects. Here is where a good writer can go deeper, explaining that the pill intensified her dependency, just as it exacerbated Jim Gordon's cancer, or, perhaps, Montoya isn't a relapse case at all, it's just her depression that allows her to believe such is the case. Her decision seems rash even with the caveats applied, as it comes suddenly and from nowhere. The Insurgency is at it's lowest ebb since Injustice has been offered, but it's far from a nadir. However, as we've been given a great amount of time and space since the Insurgency's last defeat, it's on the reader to fill in the chasms that are left in storytelling, which Injustice readers seem to be ready and raring to do. Still, Montoya's desperation comes across as genuine, and her fall will definitely be worthy of emoting for some readers, and in that it's a step up from the last two installments.

May 25, 2015: Documentary on Failed "Justice League: Mortal" Movie is ComingPrint

Justice League: Mortal It seems that the story behind failed DC Comics movie projects is a popular theme for documentary makers, with a feature-length documentary on the never-made "Justice League: Mortal" film by "Mad Max: Fury Road" director George Miller currently being planned.

    Short film director Ryan Unicomb is teaming with producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell and Sydney-based writer/author Maria Lewis to develop the documentary which will reportedly be an unbiased account of the superhero ensemble project's gestation, development and ultimate disintegration.

    Currently going by the working title of "Miller's Justice League Mortal," Unicomb is said to already have private investors lined up though he may augment that however with a crowd-funding campaign. The plan is to interview some of the cast and crew who would have been a part of the film along with showcasing some never-before-seen artwork and costumes.

Source: DarkHorizons.com.

With George Miller directing, "Justice League: Mortal" was set to star D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, rapper/actor Common as Green Lantern, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, and Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul. The Writer's strike in 2007 as well as a change in tax break advantages in Australia resulted in the project being cancelled.
