    (1) INFINITE CRISIS
    10/2005: Infinite Crisis #1 (of 7) -- 249,265 -- [268,458]
    11/2005: Infinite Crisis #2 (of 7) -- 207,564 (-16.7%) -- [224,068]
    12/2005: Infinite Crisis #3 (of 7) -- 188,853 (- 9.0%) -- [216,727]
    01/2006: Infinite Crisis #4 (of 7) -- 182,633 (- 3.3%) -- [207,297]
    02/2006: --
    03/2006: Infinite Crisis #5 (of 7) -- 201,855 (+10.5%)

    For the fifth time in a row, INFINITE CRISIS breaks the 200K barrier. Which means it's the most successful direct market title in at least nine years ("at least" because numbers before 1997 are hard to come by).

    More significantly, first-month sales actually went up in March compared to issue #4, and all previous issues made the Top 300 chart again, selling between 3,651 (#1) and 8,139 (#4) copies, underscoring that the story is still generating demand.

    INFINITE CRISIS is a home run for DC, obviously.

    (36) JSA
    02/2006: JSA #82 -- 54,234 (+ 8.3%)
    03/2006: JSA #83 -- 51,991 (- 4.1%)

    It's "One Year Later," but minus the artwork of George Pérez, who illustrated issue #82. As a result, sales take a step down. These are still great numbers, however, so it's safe to assume that the book's upcoming cancelation in July is not due to low sales, but because they have yet another relaunch waiting in the wings. How long can it be now before the trick gets old (again)?

    'Infinite Crisis' #5 Up 11%
    March a Healthy Month for Comic Sales
    April 17, 2006

    Diamond sold almost 202,000 copies of Infinite Crisis #5 to comic stores in March, around an 11% increase over its sales of #4. The title is a true juggernaut, taking the #1 slot in every month it's shipped. Although some of the difference in quantity between #4 and #5 may have been the times of the month they shipped (#4 shipped January 18th and #5 shipped March 1st, giving #5 two more weeks to sell reorders), the title certainly isn't losing any steam and may be picking up strength.

    Over-all, it was a strong month for comic circulations, with 11 titles up and 9 down in the top 25 vs. the previous issues.

    INFINITE CRISIS #5 (2nd Print) (Apr 2006)
    DC Comics

    As INFINITE CRISIS nears its stunning conclusion, DC Comics announces that the sold out fifth issue is going back to press for a second printing.

    INFINITE CRISIS #5 reprints the story by Geoff Johns, with art by Phil Jimenez, Jerry Ordway, Ivan Reis, Andy Lanning, and Art Thibert. The new printing features a pencils-only version of the issue's cover by George Pérez.

    "It's great to be involved in a project like INFINITE CRISIS on a professional level, but the fan in me is just as thrilled to see the story unfold issue by issue as well," says Ordway. "On the original CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, I was saddened by the loss of the Earth-2 Superman to DC's active continuity, as he is such a vital link back to Joe Shuster's original visual concept. Being able to draw this Superman again in such an emotional sequence (scripted by Geoff) has been tremendous fun. News of the brisk sell-through is like the icing on the cake!"

    CRISIS COUNSELING FOR IC #5 WITH DAN DIDIO

    (excerpt)

    NRAMA: Along with the time shift, Phil hasn’t been the sole artist on the book since issue #3. How related is that the book’s scheduling?
    Dan Didio: The plan was always to bring in Jerry Ordway to do the Earth 2 sequences and George Perez to do scenes that paid tribute to the original Crisis. Phil is a huge fan of the original series and wanted to make sure they were involved in the sequel. Phil is also a perfectionist and realist, and he has always put the project first. As the schedule got tighter and tighter, he saw that Eddie Berganza needed to move heaven and multiple earths to keep this book on schedule, Phil volunteered to give up pages so that we keep the series on track. Eddie brought in Ivan Reis to help on the middle issues, that way Phil could focus on the final two. There has been a lot of crazy planning and juggling on these books, but everyone involved, from George to Jerry to Phil to Ivan to Geoff to Eddie and all our inkers, have been consummate professionals in their handling of this series.

    News: From George Pérez (Feb 2006)

    February 19, 2006 08:51 pm
     From George Perez

    INFINITE CRISIS #5 (Perez Cover) (Feb 2006)
    DC Comics
    Well, it's time for an all-too-infrequent update on what's going on at the International House of Pérez. I've read quite a number of posts on various message boards asking such things as"When will George be starting on THE BRAVE & THE BOLD?", "Will GAMES: THE TITANS GRAPHIC NOVEL ever come out?", "Is he working on the DC character turn-arounds for DC's official bible?" "Will that art be made available to the buying public?"

    Well here are some answers, a few unfortunately vague because, quite truthfully, I'm not sure of the answers myself.

    DC's big event books have really put a major monkey wrench in the production of the monthly books (not to mention some of the event books themselves). Because of my involvement in INFINITE CRISIS, which seems to grow with every issue, I've not been available to start anything on B & B except for the first issue's cover, which was done months ago in anticipation of my starting the actual title in November of 2005. That cover was supposed to appear in the WIZARD issue announcing DC's 2006 schedule of new titles. It was yanked when it became obvious that I could not start the book until after my return from vacation in late January so the release schedule was still undetermined. That vacation, planned over a year ago as a partial celebration of Carol's and my 25th Wedding Anniversary, also explains why I will have no interior art in IC #5. Upon my return I learned that Mark Waid, now heavily immersed in writing his share of 52, had not been able to work on B &B during my absence and will likely not be able to do so for a couple of months. I'm not hurting for work, however, as there are plenty of pages to draw for IC 6 & 7, far more than I had imagined when I agreed to help out on the project. INFINITE CRISIS' schedule overrules all others for the next two months. That includes B &B and any art for the DC Bible.

    As for the character art for the DC Bible (not its official name, by the way), I really have no idea whether it will appear in a published format, although I think it would be cool if I do a good enough job to warrant such a publication. Lord knows the royalties would be nice. But, until I can actually start on drawing them the subject's rather moot.

    The official status of GAMES is a bit more tricky. With all the post-IC work I have lined up, I don't see how I will have the time to get back on the graphic novel. Quite honestly, and honesty can be quite brutal, I wouldn't hold my breath on it ever being released. I know that my wonderful friend and co-creator Marv Wolfman is still guardedly optimistic on the resurrection of this project (a lot of that positive thinking having been fueled by me two years ago when I stated my intent to complete the art), but my subsequent exclusive contract with DC has prompted the company to utilize my talents on more current projects aimed at forming DC's future rather than just basking in the nostalgia of its past. The completed art in GAMES is over 15 years old, although it does hold up pretty damn well, in my opinion. I guess it could conceivably be restarted yet again, but it seems to become more unlikely with each new DC assignment in each passing new year. For that, I am sincerely sorry-- For Marv, for inker Mike Perkins who signed a Marvel exclusive since inking ten of the un-inked pages, for Al Vey, who had inked the earlier pages over a decade ago, for color artist Tom Smith, for the fans who have waited so long and whose hopes may be dashed yet again-- and, finally, for me. It would have been nice to put closure to the project. Oh, and for those who suggested that some other artist or artists finish the project, I suggested the same thing years ago. Unfortunately, DC only wanted this as a Wolfman/Pérez Titans story; so, without me, it's not getting done. An unfortunate Catch-22, I'm afraid. Still, there is always that small glimmer of hope. After all, what if I'm done with all my IC stuff and there's still no B & B work ready? You never know.

    I do have some non-IC work down the pipe, mostly covers. I still have two more JSA covers to draw and I've drawn a RED SONJA cover for Dynamite Comics (part of an agreement that pre-dated my DC exclusive) and still have a few covers to draw for that company. There's also the cover for the final collection of my WONDER WOMAN work. I've been approached by Wildstorm for a cover, but I haven't followed up on that yet.

    I am grateful that there are so many fans out there for which my continuing output seems to actually matter. Thanks for the support, the kind words, and even the critiques. Despite illnesses and setbacks, I'm thankful for the loyalty and affection of my fans. Along with the love and support of my wife, family and friends, it's what gives me the drive to get up in the morning and face that drawing board and peer into the snow-white blankness of the page-- and make my mark.

    Bob Wayne, Greg Rucka, Dan DiDio and Joan Hilty were on the Infinite Crisis panel at Wizard World Chicago. Not a lot of new announcements were made, but the panelists did say that Ted Kord, Max Lord, Sue Dibny, and Barry Allen would not be making a return to the DCU after the Infinite Crisis.

    RANDOM NOTES
    The new 52 weekly series is directly spun out of events occurring in Infinite Crisis #4, which ships in March of 2006. There will be multiple teams on 52 to ensure that it's a continuous event and will come out on time.

    DC announced that fan favorite artist George Perez will be drawing all the seven covers of Infinite Crisis.

    There was cryptic news that Keith Giffen is working on a new series, but the publisher would not confirm what it was about or who was featured in the comic.

    DCU continuity will be sustained after the Infinite Crisis.

    These titles are unaffected by Infinite Crisis: Brave and the Bold, Plastic Man, the All Stars line, and Legion of Super-Heroes.

    These characters are not coming back to the DCU: Ted Kord, Barry Allen, Maxwell Lord, or Sue Dibny.

    When asked about a possible new Blue Beetle, the panelists said, "If there is a new Blue Beetle, it won't be Ted Kord."

    News: Jimenez Talks Donna Troy

    TROJAN WARRIOR: JIMENEZ TALKS: "DC SPECIAL: THE RETURN OF DONNA TROY"
    by Jonah Weiland, Executive Producer
    Posted: August 2, 2005

    Donna Troy was one of the most beloved members of the DC Comics Teen Titans. Fans mourned her death in the "Graduation Day" mini-series and rejoiced when DC announced the four-issue "DC Special: Return of Donna Troy" mini-series by writer Phil Jimenez and artist Jose Garcia Lopez. However, when some readers picked up the first issue of the series they found it wasn't quite what they expected and some were left confused. CBR News chatted with Jimenez by phone last week for some clarification and background on the series and some hints on how it ties into the looming "Infinite Crisis."

    (excerpt)

    After the DC Universe settles down from the events of "Infinite Crisis," readers can expect appearances from Donna in a monthly DC book. "I think there's been some talk. The plan had always been that once she was reintroduced she would be placed in either the 'Titans' or 'The Outsiders.' I suspect it will be one of those books."

    Jimenez has enjoyed crafting a story that reintroduces one of his favorite characters and places her at the forefront of the big events in the DC Universe. He urges readers who may be confused or have questions to stick with the book. The final two issues of "The Return of Donna Troy" should tie things together for them nicely. "I just hope readers remembers that it is a four-issue series," Jimenez said. "Just because everything wasn't explained in issue one doesn't mean it doesn't pan out over the other three issues."

    The changes coming to the DC Universe following Infinite Crisis won’t be limited just to the characters. DC Executive Editor Dan DiDio has confirmed for Newsarama that, following the seven-issue Infinite Crisis miniseries, DC editorial will see a significant change as well.

    In a brief chat with Newsarama Friday morning, DiDio initially explained some of the rationale behind the upcoming “One Year Later…” jump all the DCU titles will experience coming out of Infinite Crisis between February and March of 2006.

    “We had an editorial meeting to talk through Crisis - how we’re going to handle it, how we’re going to coordinate it, and how we’re going to follow it,” DiDio said. “When the suggestion was made by editorial of maybe doing a leap ahead in storylines, it gave us an interesting hook that would really play nicely, because it would allow you to get back into your characters in their own individual stories again, without being made to feel that they’re all coming from the same place and the same time. With everything running as tightly as it will be in Crisis, the last thing we wanted to do was follow it by having all the series coming from the same exact place, and the same exact time, because that can get a little redundant. This allows for every series to have its own individual identity again, and allows us to get the balls back up in the air as quickly as possible and get right back into the heart of what makes each character special.”

    The former Titan resurfaces with clues to 'Crisis'.

    It's a brand-new dawn for Donna!

    Originally Wonder Girl Donna Troy, seemingly killed in Titans/Young Justice: Graduation Day mini-series but instead transported to a strange world, roars back to life in DC Special: The Return of Donna Troy. written by Phil Jimenez with art by Jose Luis Garcia and George Perez, the four issue mini also serves as the official prologue to October's Infinite Crisis mini-series (drawn by Jimenez and written by Geoff Jones).

    "This series sets Donna Troy up as a major player in the Crisis itself," the writer says. "It also connects to the cosmic events of the Rann/Thanagar War and the Teen Titans and the Outsiders. We're using her background and history to explain why she's so pivotal to the DC Universe, and why she, more than anyone else, has to be in the role she's about to take on."

    Plus August's issue #3 is girl-on-girl action when Donna tangles with current Wonder Girl Cassie Sandsmark!
