SDCC 2018: Stargirl is Coming to DC Universe, Plus Shazam, and Three Jokers

Geoff Johns had some reveals at his Spotlight panel Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 with the news that he is writing and executive producing Stargirl for the DC Universe digital subscription service. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will also executive produce. The original series is the sixth for the brand-new service and focuses on the character that started Johns’ career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, lovingly inspired by his late sister who was killed in a 1996 plane explosion.

Stargirl follows High School sophomore Courtney Whitmore who inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new DC Universe series reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in a fun, exciting and unpredictable series premiering in 2019, produced by Warner Bros. Television, Mad Ghost Productions and Berlanti Productions.

Before the crowd could settle down, Johns revealed he will return to Shazam! with an ongoing comic book series, reuniting with artist Dale Eaglesham. Shazam! #1 will debut on November 21, the same Wednesday before Thanksgiving that Johns debuted Doomsday Clock #1 in 2017.

Speaking of Doomsday Clock, Johns revealed new art by Gary Frank from issue #6, out July 25. Johns shared that the new issue will provide fans with Mime and Marionette’s origin stories.

Finally, Johns revealed a first look at Batman: Three Jokers by artist Jason Fabok and announced that the series will be published under the DC Black Label imprint, which promises a provocative and daring storytelling.

Review: The Man of Steel #6

The fate of Lois Lane and Jon Kent is revealed! Metropolis’ survival hangs in the balance! And Superman must somehow put an end to Rogol Zaar’s rampage! It’s do-or-die time for the Man of Steel in the final chapter of this explosive miniseries!

While writer Brian Michael BendisThe Man of Steel has generally been ok as single issues, it’s much stronger as a whole. This issue is no exception as it feels like it’s purpose is to answer the question as to where Jonathan and Lois are and set things moving as far as to what’s next for Superman.

Rogol Zaar, as an addition to Superman’s villains, is one full of potential. As Superman repeats, he is made for war. There’s not much else to him other than his want of destroying Kryptonians. We don’t know a whole lot and things are left open for Supergirl to explore that aspect. That chapter is wrapped up and while not a bad ending, it’s a solution we’ve seen again and again and one I thought about issues ago.

But, the bigger thing is where Jonathan and Lois are. We get the decision as to what they decide to do as far as Jor-El’s offer and much like Zaar’s fate, it also is not a surprise now. Jor-El’s reveal was the surprise. Though, that also leaves so many questions considering how we last saw him being whisked away by we assume Doc Manhattan.

Then there’s those fires. That’s not really answered, that’ll happen in Bendis’ run on Action Comics and Superman.

Where the comic takes off is the focus on the heart. Superman dealing with his family, and the decisions there is where things stand out. Jonathan especially, it’s hard to not feel bad for the kid. There’s also the hurt of where Superman is when the decision is made. It’s hard to discuss that without spoiling things but again, it’s the heart that stands out. If Bendis focuses on that, we’ll be fine as he’s really stood out in that aspect.

The art by Jason Fabok is pretty solid. There’s some great moments with Jonathan where the emotion rolls off the page. There’s a lot of emotion at times and that’s balanced with a lot of fighting. There’s a battle with Zaar that’s decent in the battle though it really misses that really hook of a moment. Again, the best parts are the emotional ones, especially with Jonathan.

This is a prequel in every sense. It’s setting up what’s to come in Bendis’ run and there’s a lot of balls in the air. There’s the fire storyline. There’s Jonathan and Lois’ adventure. There’s Supergirl’s quest. But hopefully, Bendis focuses on Superman/Clark home alone and a bit lost. His strength through this entire miniseries has been the heart of it all. While no individual issue really stands out, the package as a whole is an entertaining read.

Review: Batman #50

It’s the wedding you never thought you’d see! The Batrimony is real as Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle are set to tie the knot in a can’t-miss, extra-length milestone issue that will reshape Gotham City. All their friends (and a few enemies?) will be party to a comic book coupling for the ages.

The build up has been coming for a while now and with Batman #50 writer Tom King answers the question as to whether Batman and Catwoman tie the knot.

The issue is done in an interesting way with what amounts to two page spreads with generally half dedicated to Batman’s preparation for the day and the other half for Catwoman’s. In between these normal panel pages, there’s full page images by some top art talent on top of which we’re presented the two’s thoughts about their meeting and what they’re about to do.

While the “will they or won’t they” has been spoiled the comic is interesting as it delves into the thought process of two individuals who are clearly nervous about tying the knot and if they do what it means.

Catwoman isn’t a hero, she’s a criminal.

Batman is a hero. He’s a hero driven by his pain.

If they were to get married, what does that mean for each of them? Can Batman be happy? These are the types of thoughts that run throughout the comic as the two characters explore their love for each other. And that’s the impressive thing, Tom King convinces you that these two love each other. By the end, you’re convinced there’s no one else for these two.

And that spoiling? Well, not quite. There’s a twist but you’ll have to read the comic yourself and go elsewhere.

The issues with the comic is the hype and a build up that doesn’t pay off. The quality of the narrative is excellent, it all just doesn’t quite live up to the lead up and the end result is rather predictable. A single panel does not make a comic and this one relies heavily on that final panel.

The art duties are mainly handled by Mikel Janin with colors by June Chung and lettering by Clayton Cowles. The art is solid and there’s some fantastic page layouts. The way some of these pages are laid out is impressive with very creative visual storytelling. What’s also interesting is the use of pin-ups to tell the story as well. There was a similar thing done in Action Comics #1000 and here it sort of works. The artwork is fantastic, there’s some talent. But, it breaks up the story a bit and after a while becomes a little tedious. When the big picture comes in to focus, the choice is an interesting one and adds a poetic aspect, somewhat appropriate considering what’s happening.

This is a chapter in King’s larger story. There’s much more to come as things weave together and that final panel indicates we’ve got a hell of a lot of excitement to come. As a single issue, this one has its good and its bad but as a piece of the larger puzzle it fits like a perfectly crafted piece of the larger picture.
