Hero Initiative, the charity that helps comic book creators in medical and financial need, is celebrating the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman in a HUGE way!
DC Entertainment created a precious few blank-covered editions of a Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special and the Hero Initiative got 100 top artists to do original drawings right on the cover. The result is The Wonder Woman 100 Project!
The originals will be auctioned off starting in May, and a Wonder Woman 100 Project softcover book collecting all the covers will be available from DC in June (Diamond Order Code APR170441). A limited edition hardcover will be available direct from Hero Initiative at the same time.
thrilled to partner again with Hero Initiative to celebrate Wonder Woman
and support such a worthwhile cause,” stated DC Entertainment Publisher
Jim Lee. “The original covers are impressive and sure to be a hit with
Wonder Woman fans and collectors.”

Marv Wolfman writes:
Last night, when I got back home from FanX (see below) I was stunned to find waiting for me a box filled with the very first collection of my Vigilante stories from the 1980s. And even more stunned to discover the official name of the collection was "Vigilante By Marv Wolfman." Yes, I knew they were doing a collection - I did write the foreword - but I had no idea about the name-included title. Thanks, everyone.But I was especially thrilled to see that all the artists who made those stories come to life were also given cover credit. You guys are the best.
Back in the 80s I wanted to do something very different with Vigilante, and I'm overjoyed the stories are finally being collected. I know Vigilante's appearances on the ArrowTV show brought him back to the forefront, but since I was so pleased with the stories I'm really happy they're back for new fans to read.
Since I just got my author's box of books, I'm assuming the book will be on sale this coming Wednesday. Please pick it up so volume's 2 through whatever can also be published, but also read my intro as it explains exactly how I came up with the character.
I hope you enjoy it.
Exclusive First Look At The Atari Related Titles From Dynamite Shipping June 2017
Posted by Dan Wickline March 18, 2017
This batch of exclusive first looks is focused on what Dynamite is doing with Atari. Here we have the covers and solicitations for the Art of Atari poster collection, the new Swordquest #1 and a remastered printing of the original Swordquest: Earthworld mini-comic from over 35 years ago.
The Atari Age returns to comics with the most unexpected story of the year: SwordQuest! In 1984, Peter Case was on his way to being crowned champion of SwordQuest, set to win the last of four contests and lay claim to a golden sword worth over $50,000! But when the game was discontinued, Peter found himself without a game to finish. Now, over thirty years later, Peter’s stuck in a different kind of game entirely — the game of life, and he’s losing fast. But when he learns that all the prizes meant for the SwordQuest contest of his youth are on display in the World Arcade Museum, he finds an unknown determination that sees him put together a team of like-minded losers for the ultimate heist job — a real-life sword quest! The red-hot team of Chris Sims, Chad Bowers, and Ghostwriter X (Down Set Fight) have a new game — and the stakes have never been higher!

World Premiere of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract at WCA 2017!
Posted on Mar 13, 2017
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment continues its annual WonderCon tradition with the premiere of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, the next DC Universe Original Movie, on the evening of Friday, March 31, 2017 in the Arena of the Anaheim Convention Center.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will screen at 6:00 PM in the Arena, followed by a panel discussion featuring Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity, Batman: Bad Blood), the voice of Nightwing; Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Raven; Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, The Fosters) as Blue Beetle; Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series) as Beast Boy; Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb, Legion of Superheroes) as Starfire; and Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood) as Robin/Damian; plus director Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke), supervising producer James Tucker (Batman Bad Blood, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders) and character designer Phil Bourassa (Justice League Dark, Young Justice). Additional panelists will be announced as confirmed.
Inspired by the 1984 DC story arc from Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract finds the Teen Titans—Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin and the just-returned Nightwing—working as a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil. But their newest teammate, the mysterious and powerful Terra (voiced by Christina Ricci), may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil, Brother Blood (Gregg Henry), has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke (the late Miguel Ferrer) is lurking in the shadows – both waiting to pounce. Ultimately, the Teen Titans will need to battle their enemies and their own doubts to unite and overcome the malicious forces around them in this twisting tale of intrigue, adventure and deception.
An encore presentation of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (without an accompanying panel) is slated for Sunday, April 2 at 3:15 PM in the Arena.
