THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE #1
written by JOHN RIDLEY
art and cover by ALEX DOS DIAZ
variant cover by TB
Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Let It Fall) examines the mythology of the DC Universe in this compelling new miniseries that reframes iconic moments of DC history and charts a previously unexplored sociopolitical thread as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.
This unique new series presents its story as prose by Ridley married with beautifully realized color illustrations from a selection of exciting illustrators and comics artists. Alex Dos Diaz provides art for #1, which follows the story of Jefferson Pierce, the man who will one day become Black Lightning, as he makes his way from being a young track star to a teacher and, ultimately, to his role as a hero.
Future issues focus on characters such as Karen and Mal Duncan, Tatsu Yamashiro and Renee Montoya.
Extensively researched and masterfully executed, THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE promises to be an experience unlike any other. You may think you know the history of the DC Universe…but the truth is far more complex. THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE isn’t about saving the world—it’s about having the strength to simply be who you are.

SUPERMAN 100-PAGE SUPER-SPECTACULAR #1
written by MARV WOLFMAN
art and cover by CLAUDIO CASTELLINI
“This is the best Superman story I’ve ever written.” So says living legend Marv Wolfman, and when you’ve written hundreds of Superman stories as he has, it means a great deal. This gem of a tale—written and drawn from 2006-2009 for the SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL series—explodes from the DC archives as a triumphant tale of Clark Kent’s fateful first days in Metropolis, which were far from easy. His early failures almost ensured there would never be a hero called Superman. Powerful writing and stunning art combine to conjure an inspiring story that needed to be published, one you will never forget, from a pair of master storytellers.

The first details about John Ridley’s upcoming DC Black Label comic, The Other History of the DC Universe, have been released online by DC Comics.
Ridley, who previously wrote The American Way for Vertigo and the Academy Award-winning 12 Years a Slave, will pen The Other History of the DC Universe as a part of the DC Black Label imprint. The imprint was established earlier this year as a place where creators had creative freedom to tell self-contained, mature stories. Although it garnered controversy with the first title under the banner (Batman: Damned), the next Black Label book is still scheduled to be released early next year.RELATED: DC Wishes Batman: Damned Nudity Had Never Happened
Largely written in prose and accompanied by artwork from a rotating roster of artists, The Other History of the DC Universe will explore some of the biggest moments in DC continuity, from the perspective of different disenfranchised groups.
The first issue of the series will focus on Black Lightning. Illustrator Alex Dos Diaz will provide the cover art and interior illustrations. The solicitation also reveals that the series will run for five issues, and that each issue will focus on different characters. These include Renee Montoya, Katana, Bumblebee and Herald.The Other History of the DC Universe is scheduled to be released Jan. 30, 2019. Check out the cover art below.

Ahead of the launch of the highly anticipated comic book series this November, BOOM! Studios has provided a brand new look at Firefly #1, by Greg Pak and Dan McDaid.
“Mal has always been classified as a lovable rogue,” BOOM! Studios executive editor Jeanine Schaefer said in a statement. “But in revealing his past, we’re able to really dissect that, to accept him at his worst as well as his best. Greg and Dan are crafting a story that really springs out of what made the show great: that these characters are complex and flawed, and that their faults make them as much of who they are as their strengths. The war wasn’t kind to Mal, but neither was he kind in it, and it’s going to inform how his crew — and the reader — see him.”RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Mal is Still Too Pretty in Sienkiewicz’s Firefly #1 Variant
BOOM! Studios’ Firefly #1 marks the long-awaited return of the crew of the Serenity from the television series Firefly. Firefly, created by Joss Whedon, aired for only one season on Fox from Sept. 20 until Dec. 20 in 2002 but has since gained a massive fan following. A follow-up film, Serenity, was released in 2005.
The upcoming comic series, written by Greg Pak (World War Hulk, Mech Cadet Yu) with art by Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd), will again focus on Mal Reynolds, captain of the Serenity. When a mission goes wrong, Mal finds that his past has caught up with him and a new breed of Alliance terror, the Unificators, are hot on his tail. Whedon serves as a story consultant on the series.
Firefly #1, by Greg Pak and Dan McDaid, goes on sale Nov. 14 from BOOM! Studios.

Marvel Comics today teased the full roster for its upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy reboot, the culmination of a campaign that has successively revealed new potential members of the team throughout the month. Today, it was revealed that Star-Lord, Adam Warlock, Groot and the Silver Surfer may join the team, making for perhaps one of the most powerful cosmic rosters to fly under the Guardians’ banner — maybe.
The teaser comes with the caveat that only six of the characters pictured will actually end up joining the new squad. Who will end up making the cut, and what will happen to the remaining five, is anyone’s guess at this point.Cosmic Ghost Rider was originally revealed as the first potential member of the team back on Oct. 4. Marvel has been revealing the remaining members since Wednesday, when Moondragon, Gladiator and Beta Ray Bill were revealed. Thursday brought news that Phyla-Vell, Nova and Darkhawk may be joining the team. Today, we have a clearer look at what Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw’s cosmic roster might look like.RELATED: Marvel Reveals Three New Guardians of the Galaxy Members
Of the characters revealed today, perhaps the least surprising are Star-Lord and Groot, who have been consistent members of the team for a considerable amount of time. Both have been integral to the current Infinity Wars event and its lead-up. Star-Lord even died at the hands of Gamora for a short time before his demise was undone by a Time Stone-wielding Doctor Strange.
Adam Warlock has also played a pivotal role in the event, which has centered around Gamora’s obsession with retrieving a piece of herself lost inside Soul World — a pocket dimension with which she and Adam Warlock are intimately familiar — and eventually recreating all of reality inside the Soul Stone. Curiously, Adam Warlock also died for a short time (though this time at the hands of eldritch deity Devondra) before his death was undone by Doctor Strange, also using the Time Stone.RELATED: Marvel’s New Guardians of the Galaxy Roster Expands Again
Silver Surfer played a pivotal role in Cates’ run on the Thanos series, which, along with Gerry Duggan’s Guardians of the Galaxy, acted as the kickoff for the current event. That series saw the Silver Surfer take on the mantle of the Fallen One, a Mjolnir-wielding herald who was thoroughly done with Thanos’ reign of terror in the future. Thanos, a younger Thanos and Cosmic Ghost Rider were able to vanquish the far-future version of Silver Surfer, though rendered that future obsolete shortly after doing so. The reverberations of that event have, nonetheless, been felt throughout time.
Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw’s Guardians of the Galaxy reboot is slated to begin in 2019 and will deal with the aftermath of Thanos’ death and Eros’ subsequent retrieval of the Mad Titan’s last will and testament.

Author Chuck Wendig announced today on Twitter that Marvel Comics has fired him from Star Wars: Shadow of Vader #4 and #5, as well as a yet-announced Star Wars project. The cause of the firing appears to be consistent and sustained harassment from the Comicsgate subcommunity, which prides itself on campaigns of harassment aimed at creators who incorporate progressive characters and themes into their works.

So, here’s a thing that has happened – I just got fired from Marvel. Taken off issues 4 and 5 of SHADOW OF VADER, and taken off an as-yet-unannounced SW book.
This might be a long thread, so apologies in advance.
— Chuck Wendig (@ChuckWendig) October 12, 2018
According to Wendig’s tweets (the author penned several in succession to tell his story), the harassment began after the release of his 2015 novel Star Wars: Aftermath, which introduced a character named Sinjir Rath Velus, an Imperial turncoat and one of the few openly gay characters in Star Wars canon. That book’s online rankings were marred by a review bombing campaign, despite impressive sales. Since the book’s release, the harassment levied at Wendig has only intensified.RELATED: Marvel’s Star Wars Comic Reveals Han Solo’s History as a [REDACTED]
While Wendig was initially assured by Lucasfilm that the harassment did not reflect poorly on him, things have seemingly changed. Wendig explained that, in a phone call he received today, an editor from Marvel, Mark Paniccia, explained that he was fired due to “the negativity and vulgarity” that his tweets brought.
“It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part,” wrote Wendig, then in another tweet: “Basically, because I was not civil.”
Wendig also pointed out that he is far from the first creator to lose a job at Marvel due to campaigns of sustained harassment, perhaps the most notable example being Disney firing James Gunn from the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise Guardians of the Galaxy earlier this year. As for Star Wars, Kelly Marie Tran of The Last Jedi fame has been upfront about the harassment she received since debuting in the film as Rose Tico.
The five-part Shadow of Vader miniseries was announced a New York Comic Con. It will follow the Star Wars villain Darth Vader through various eras of his life. A replacement writer has not been announced for the series’ final and penultimate issues.

Ever since his surprise casting in 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, star Johnny Depp and the production has faced controversy following allegations of domestic abuse from ex-spouse Amber Heard. As press on the film’s sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, ramps up, Depp has addressed the controversy while publicly maintaining his stance of innocence in the matter.
“I felt bad for J.K. [Rowling] having to field all these various feelings from people out there. I felt bad that she had to take that,” admitted Depp in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in regards to the Harry Potter creator and Fantastic Beasts producer and writer J.K. Rowling facing criticism for Depp’s casting in spite of allegations of domestic violence which the actor continues to deny. “Ultimately, there is real controversy. The fact remains I was falsely accused, which is why I’m suing The Sun newspaper for defamation for repeating false accusations.”RELATED: Fantastic Beasts 2: What You Need to Know About Newt’s Brother Theseus
Heard officially filed for divorce from Depp amid allegations of domestic violence accompanied by photos of her battered visage as evidence. Depp denied the allegations, stating any altercations between the estranged couple were strictly verbal with the divorce ultimately reaching a $7 million settlement. The divorced couple initially issued a joint statement acknowledging that Heard had not made the allegations falsely for financial gain and there never any intent of physical or emotional harm from Depp. The actor has since filed a lawsuit for libel against The Sun regarding the domestic abuse accusations expected to go to court next month while Heard’s legal team has explored options following continued denials from Depp and allegations that he has refused to uphold the terms of their previous settlement.
“J.K. has seen the evidence and therefore knows I was falsely accused, and that’s why she has publicly supported me,” Depp continued. “She doesn’t take things lightly. She would not stand up if she didn’t know the truth.”RELATED: Fantastic Beasts 2 Actor Calls Film ‘the Darkest of the Entire Series’
Arriving on November 16, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is directed by David Yates, with J.K. Rowling, David Heyman, Steve Kloves, and Lionel Wigram serving as producers. The film stars Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, and Callum Turner.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy reboot roster has expanded yet again. While yesterday brought news that Cosmic Ghost Rider would be joined by Moondragon, Gladiator and Beta Ray Bill, a newly-released teaser today confirmed that the four will also be joined by Nova, Darkhawk and Phyla-Vell.
Perhaps the least surprising addition to the roster is Phyla-Vell, who recently appeared alongside Moondragon in Infinity Wars #4 when the two attempted to overpower Requiem, causing them to tumble into the villain’s reshaped reality, their fates left ambiguous. If the teaser released today is to be believed, it seems they’ll be falling straight into a partnership with the new Guardians of the Galaxy.RELATED: Marvel Reveals Three New Guardians of the Galaxy Members
Darkhawk has been through his own ringer as of late. The character’s solo Infinity Wars tie-in series saw Christopher Powell’s Darkhawk armor take on new, terrifyingly powerful properties. Nova also assisted Darkhawk in his struggle against the Raptors Gyre and Dark Darkhawk. Recently, Darkhawk was recruited by Sleepwalker, who informed the hero that Gamora’s dabbling with the Infinity Stones had put the Mindscape in great danger. Their story will likely be picked up in the coming issues of the Sleepwalker solo Infinity Wars tie-in series.
The new Guardians of the Galaxy series is expected to debut in 2019. The series will be helmed by the creative team of Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw. The series is expected to tackle the fallout from Thanos’ death, which is likely to be significant.
All of that being said, the teaser today hints that the roster reveal is far from over. Several heroes remain silhouetted in the teaser. Just who could they be?

Marvel Comics today released a teaser revealing three more members from its upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy roster reboot. The image depicts Cosmic Ghost Rider (who we already knew was attached to the team), Moondragon, Gladiator and Beta Ray Bill.
The image comes with no additional context except for the ominous message, “Who will stand when the last Guardian falls!” Regardless, it seems clear the roster reveal is far from over, as several characters remain silhouetted behind the core four. Cosmic Ghost Rider’s involvement in the reboot was revealed back at the top of the month in a teaser image like the one released today, depicting only the futuristic, slightly insane Spirit of Vengeance.RELATED: Thanos Has Built a Society Based on the Punisher’s Ideology
As for the other three, Moondragon was recently seen crashing into Gamora’s new reality alongside Phyla-Vell in Infinity Wars #4. Gladiator’s addition should come as no surprise, as he appeared prominently in the Thanos series that inevitably spawned Cosmic Ghost Rider. Meanwhile, Beta Ray Bill has played a crucial role in the Death of the Inhumans series.
The Guardians of the Galaxy reboot will be helmed by the creative team of Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw. The series is expected to debut in 2019 and will reveal exactly why the galaxy needs guardians in the wake of Thanos’ demise. The last time we saw Cosmic Ghost Rider, after all, was when he stood beside Eros, Thanos’ brother, who had just acquired the Mad Titan’s last will and testament.

Eric Powell has announced that a new The Goon comic is coming out in 2019.
Powell’s publishing company, Albatross Funnybooks, will premiere the new series. It will feature the first original Goon story since the character appeared in the Theatre Bizarre Halloween one-shot from Dark Horse in 2015. The new comic will also celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series.

Powell expanded on his excitement about bringing the series to his personal imprint in a press release.
“The fact that we feel confident bringing the full library of my flagship title over to Albatross going into our third year of expansion fills me with excitement and a new enthusiastic energy for what’s to come,” said Powell.RELATED: The Goon Launches Kickstarter For Tabletop RPG

“I’m returning to the roots of the series with a heavy emphasis on the weird, twisted humor the book has been known for,” said Powell. “The world around us is dark enough right now. I want to make readers laugh and forget their troubles for a little bit.”

DC executives regret the much-discussed panels depicting a nude Bruce Wayne in Batman: Damned #1.
The sheer amount of media attention paid to the issue, released last month, has even caused DC to reassess the Black Label imprint the series launched. Announced in March, Black Label is intended to permit the publisher’s premier talent a certain level of creative freedom they wouldn’t receive working on in-continuity DC Universe titles.RELATED: Holy Full Frontal! Batman: Damned Shows a New(d) Side of the Dark Knight
That allowed Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo to create a dark and atmospheric issue about Batman and John Constantine, but the more newsworthy aspect was that the issued included a brief scene of full-frontal nudity from Batman. The panels were censored in digital copies and for future print edition.
“It’s made us, certainly, look at what Black Label is and think about whether these elements are additive to the story … and that’s something that we’ll be mindful of going forward,” DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee told Polygon at New York Comic Con, “because I don’t think we want necessarily a repeat of what happened with the first issue.”RELATED: Batman: Damned’s Digital Release Censors Bruce Wayne’s Naughty Bits
“It’s something we wished never happened,” added Co-Publisher Dan DiDio, “because it really took the attention away from what we thought was quality storytelling, and that’s not the way we see this imprint.”
There are a number of titles set to be released as Black Label series, including Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman: Last Knight on Earth, Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s Superman: Year One, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Phil Jimenze’s Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons, and John Ridley’s The Other History of the DC Universe.

Stan Lee has opened up about some of the controversies that have erupted in his personal life over the last few years.
During the interview with The Daily Beast, the 95-year-old Lee spoke about many of the controversies that have surrounded him and members of his family. This includes reports of forged checks, accusations of sexual harassment and elder abuse, a lawsuit (later dropped) against POW! Entertainment and a falling out with major members of his staff. It has reached the point where Lee has even taken out a restraining order against his former manager, Keya Morgan.
Lee spoke with the assistance of a voice box and did the interview alongside his daughter, Joan Celia, and her lawyer. Joan Celia has been accused of committing elder abuse against her father, allegations she has vehemently denied.RELATED: Police Investigating Stan Lee Elder Abuse Claims
“There really isn’t that much drama,” said Lee. “As far as I’m concerned, we have a wonderful life. I’m pretty damn lucky. I love my daughter, I’m hoping that she loves me, and I couldn’t ask for a better life… She is a wonderful daughter. I like her. We have occasional spats. But I have occasional spats with everyone. I’ll probably have one with you, where I’ll be saying, ‘I didn’t say that!’ But, that’s life.”
Lee also addressed rumors about his money handling and his daughter’s spending.
“I decided my daughter is no longer a teenager,” said Lee. “This money will be left to her, and instead of waiting until I die, I will give her as much as I can for her to enjoy now. And that’s what I’m trying to do.”RELATED: Stan Lee & POW! Release Statement About His Social Media Accounts
Lee also spoke on the matter of his restraining order against Morgan.
“I can’t do everything,” said Lee. “I thought he’d maybe help [Joan Celia]. It didn’t work. In fact, he turned out to be quite a disappointment.”

At the Rooster Teeth panel at New York Comic Con, the Austin-based production company revealed it had fresh content on the way for both readers of western comic books and Japanese manga.
Alongside the announcement that the company would be teaming up with DC Comics in 2019 to produce comic books based on the hit animated series RWBY and upcoming animated series gen:LOCK, it was also announced that a brand-new RWBY manga would be hitting shelves in the coming year as well.RELATED: DC Teaming with Rooster Teeth for gen:LOCK and RWBY Comics
The panel also confirmed the previously-announced young adult novel RWBY: After the Fall by E.C. Myers was being slated for a summer 2019 release.
At this time, it is not known exactly when the new RWBY manga will be released or who its creative team will be. However, we do know this new manga will be simultaneously released in English and Japanese, setting it apart from previous RWBY manga releases.
The first manga based on the popular animated series, simply titled RWBY, was written by Shirow Miwa (Dogs, Devil May Cry) and was first released in Japan in November 2015 with the English release coming in January 2018.
Miwa’s manga was followed by the RWBY: Official Manga Anthology, a four-volume manga series featuring a slew of creators, with each volume centered around one of the series’ four main characters. The Japanese version of the first volume was released in May 2017 with the final volume debuting later that year in October. The English release of Volume 1 was then released in May 2018 with the fourth and final volume slated for a February 2019 release.RELATED: Rooster Teeth’s gen:LOCK Sets a Release Date
The significant gaps between the Japanese and English releases of previous RWBY manga series are likely what prompted the company to opt for a more definitive worldwide-style release this time around. Fans can likely expect more information on the new RWBY manga following the English release of the Anthology‘s final volume on Feb. 19.
Created by Monty Oum, Rooster Teeth Animation’s RWBY stars the voices of Lindsay Jones, Kara Eberle, Arryn Zech, Barbara Dunkelman, Miles Luna, Shannon McCormick, Neath Oum, Samantha Ireland, Jessica Nigri, Michael Jones, Vic Mignogna, Aaron Dismuke, Garrett Hunter and Jen Taylor. The series returns for Volume 6 on Oct. 27.
