The internet let out something of a collective groan after the first trailer of DC Universe’s new live-action Titans series dropped, in large part because of the show’s dark tone and Robin’s now-infamous “fuck Batman.” But Titans is something more than yet another glimpse of a gritty, hardboiled DC Elseworld. It’s a…
If you were to ask a casual comic book fan who the usual members of the Justice League are, you’d probably hear the standards: Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, the Martian, the fish dude, etc. But for the past few years, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. have been heavy-handedly trying to turn Cyborg into a core member…
July 2018 is nearly out the door, and it’s certainly been a long one, ladies and gentlemen. In this era of the 24-hour news cycle, here are some things you may not have remembered happened just weeks ago:
When I was a spry young teen a million years ago (or more realistically, 15 years ago), there was no more all-encompassing cartoon than Teen Titans. It had action! Overarching plotlines! Slade! So after it was all over and Teen Titans Go! came along a decade later, I, like many Teen Titans fans, wasn’t enamored.
OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes is about to get even more, uh, heroic, because some of Cartoon Network’s best and brightest are going to be joining the characters in a special television event.
Over the past few decades, both Marvel and DC have slowly retreated from releasing their comics on wider shelves in favor of launching books through specialty comics stores. Last year, Marvel slowly began branching out again thanks to a digest deal with Archie, and now DC is reviving an old favorite to join them.

Not a day goes by that the world doesn’t weep for having never had the opportunity to see Nicolas Cage as Superman in Tim Burton’s Superman Lives movie that never came to fruition. But the time has finally come for the actor to bring the Man of Steel to the big screen.
After a brief holiday hiatus, Toy Aisle makes its triumphant return with an exclusive first look at a new collectible from DC Comics that fans of The New Teen Titans will want to start saving for. We’ve also got the easiest way to build your own ship-in-a-bottle courtesy of Lego, and something for Star Trek: Discovery…
And it throws some serious shade at Aquaman.
Teen Titans fans have longed for a version of the show worthy of its quality. It’s been on DVD for a while, with varying levels of availability, but always in the same, standard edition. Now, after a long, long wait, that significant upgrade is happening.
But it’s a very specific kind of murder.
We’ve already seen one bird-based hero of DC’s new live action Teen Titans show. So why not two more?
When DC Comics launched a revival of Teen Titans in the 1980s, it became one of the most popular books of the era. And one of its best issues showcased two of the company’s best sidekicks in a quiet story about the holes years of comic stories had left in their personal histories.
Next year, the Teen Titans are making the leap to live-action, and now we’ve got our first look at the show in the form of the boy wonder himself.
Doom Patrol is one of DC’s oldest and weirdest superhero teams, leading an obscure life throughout decades of comics before returning to prominence with the recent ongoing series at DC’s Young Animal.
