While back East for my dentist’s STAR WARS themed wedding (not kidding), I was able to catch up with Mez and he was nice enough to give AFJ & MIDTOWN COMICS an exclusive interview about his company’s flagship line of action figures. Not only is he an incredibly knowledgeable guy, Mez is exactly what this industry needs–someone that truly gives a damn what you guys are spending your hard earned cash on and wants to make the best possible product. There was no MEZCO before this Mez which means that he is an entrepreneur that took a chance on himself and believing in something he loved could become a career. Now he is at the top of his game and the talk of the toy world. Never underestimate a kid from NYC with a dream.

2014’s Justice League: War marked the beginning of a new shared universe. Since Batman and DC’s iconic heroes joined forces and defeated Darkseid, the Dark Knight’s family has grown quite a bit. Damian Wayne – who’s the son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul – has become Robin (and a member of the Teen Titans); Dick Grayson is Nightwing; Luke Fox is Batwing; Kate Kane is Batwoman; Barbara Gordon is Batgirl (although we haven’t seen this universe’s version of Batgirl since her brief cameo in Batman: Bad Blood); last but not least, Alfred Pennyworth is, of course, always awesome as himself.

Since War, three Caped Crusaders movies within this continuity have been released: Son of Batman (which established Damian), Batman vs. Robin (which expanded on Damian’s relationship with his father), and Batman: Bad Blood (which introduced Batwoman, Batwing, and – very briefly – Batgirl). The World’s Greatest Detective has also played a part in Justice League: Throne of AtlantisJustice League vs. Teen Titans, and Justice League Dark. Now that this version of Batman and (most) of his allies have been fleshed out, it’s time to bring Bane into the picture!

Article by Gregg Katzman; Trinity #1 by Francis Manapul and Steve Wands

When DC Rebirth’s Trinity series was announced, what did you immediately expect from it? You know, aside from amazing artwork, because that’s obvious whenever Francis Manapul is attached to a project. The excellent cover revealed the three iconic heroes (Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman) and several villains reflecting in Diana’s sword. I don’t know about you, but when you have a comic featuring DC’s Trinity, part of me was expecting an epic blockbuster. After all, how many times have we seen these classic heroes save the world? It’s basically what we’ve come to expect at this point. I purposely avoided previews – I wanted to go into this one totally fresh. Would this be just like the many other team-up stories that started with pure action and set incredibly high stakes? Much to my surprise, that isn’t what happened… not even close.
