Article by Gregg Katzman

It’s official: Slade Wilson, a.k.a. Deathstroke the Terminator, is joining DC’s evergrowing cinematic universe – and his movie design appears to be inspired by his costume in Batman: Arkham Origins. Who has DC and WB cast for the role? We have no idea, but we do know we’re seriously excited to see DC’s deadly mercenary on the big screen! We strongly encourage reading some of Slade’s stories – especially the Judas Contract and The Trial of the Terminator, which are in Tales of the Teen Titans – but for now, here are a few things everyone should know about Deathstroke.

Oh, and just so you know, Deathstroke – who was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez – made his debut in 1980 (New Teen Titans #2); Deadpool – who was created by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza – made his debut in 1991 (The New Mutants #98).

BATMAN FAMILY

Article by John Quinones

Now that DC has established its cinematic universe with Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and the upcoming Wonder Woman and Justice League, I wonder who else from the source material will be making an appearance in the cinematic universe and what stories would DC and Warner Bros. use. With Ben Affleck’s success as Batman I decided to cast some other heroes from Gotham that we might possibly see in ol’ Bat’s film future.  I decided to cast the Robins and propose some story lines that would be an awesome segue for the boy wonder.  Now I know what you must be thinking… NO!!!! Leave Robin out of the DCEU!  Didn’t you see what happened before?  Batman and Robin crash and burned the entire franchise!!

I know, which is why I am proposing to cast all the iterations of Robin and not try to combine Dick Grayson and Jason Todd into one character.  That being said, we know that the new take on Batman is after the death of Robin.  Although it’s not specified in the films I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that they at least got that right and the Robin in question is Jason Todd.  If that is the case, then Dick Grayson’s Robin has already come and gone from the Batcave and is now Nightwing.  So who do I think would be a good Dick Grayson?

Article by Gregg Katzman

DC Rebirth has done an amazing job re-energizing my interest in the publisher’s fictional universe. The DC Rebirth Special was a brilliant way to begin the new direction and it’s so obvious that DC has a clear focus with each of these titles: celebrate what people love about these characters and teams. Go back to the basics, and then do something fresh with it. Don’t change things just for the sake of changing them. Instead, embrace the positive and run with it! So far, each and every title has managed to capture my interest; some more than others, obviously, but the fact that all of the titles have me wanting to see more proves that the publisher really has given this new direction everything they’ve got. Okay, I could go on and on about why I think DC Rebirth is a step in the right direction (you can read a coworker’s editorial about that here), but that’s not why you’re here. You’re here because you want to see what DC has to offer on this week’s new comic book day! So grab a drink, get comfortable, and prepare to get excited for brand new DC Rebirth issues!

In today’s age of increasingly short attention spans, a cover may be a book’s only chance to catch a reader’s eyes. A single moment, a glance that has to tell them everything they need to know about what lies within. A great cover artist is a valuable talent in the comic book industry, working diligently to entice their audience. Using various inks, brushes, and computer programs, they create the images that etch themselves into the minds of millions. At Midtown Comics, we truly love a cool cover, and we want to show them off every Monday. Here are our picks for some of the best looking books this week, and some honorable mentions worth exploring.

Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, and Laura Kinney/X-23, a.k.a. Wolverine, may both have accelerated healing factors and enjoy using pointy weapons in a fight, but they’re drastically different people. The Merc with a Mouth loves to babble and use his impressive agility to throw off his opponents, but X-23 tends to apply a very no-nonsense approach – and now it’s done in a non-lethal way. Will Wade annoy the new Wolverine and take her down, or will X-23 defeat the motormouth merc?  With Civil War II currently tearing apart the Marvel Universe, we thought it would be fun to imagine these two at odds in the big event! So, who will you side with?
