Yesterday, we ran the exclusive announcement of new "Justice League of America's Vibe" writer Sterling Gates, who's going to replace Andrew Kreisberg and DC announced several cancellations and creative shifts. And today, we have the full details of DC's "The Dark" group solicitations, complete with news on the now-cancelled "Sword of Sorcery". Check out more info after the jump.

This week, we’ve got less than the usual comics, as everyone makes room for Turkey… But that doesn’t mean we won’t see some big issues, particularly where Marvel is concerned. Kicking that off? AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #698, which begins the “Dying Wish” storyline. We don’t know a lot, but we do know writer Dan Slott has been promising huge things for our neighborhood webslinger, and it all begins here. Then two issues later? ASM gets cancelled, and we freak out. So look forward to that! Read More...

You'll have to forgive me if I've been a little backed-up on writing -- New York Comic Con was a bear (though a wonderful, sprightly, cosplaying, strangely sensual bear). Here's my thoughts on some DC Comics releases for this week:

Justice League #13

After all the hub-bub of the "Villain's Journey" arc that wrapped up last issue, this story is what's known in the nerd nomenclature as a "bridge." If it was the X-Men of, say, 1985, this bridge would involve playing baseball and Rogue flying around in skimpy (yet loosely-fitted, for maximum comfort) shorts. But since this is the Justice League of 2012, we have an angry Cheetah doing her best Cheetara impression (it is simply amazing what a thin layer of fur will cover up) and a dejected Steve Trevor doing his best "wino Superman" impression from "Superman III."

We may be wiped from this past weekend’s New York Comic Con, but like the mail, nothing stops the comics. This week the big one (literally) is MARVEL NOW! POINT ONE #1, which may have an awkward title, but it’s chock full of new content… And our first look at how “now” Marvel NOW! truly will be. Now. There’s a full length Guardians of the Galaxy story, Young Avengers, and more, so we’ll be reading this one with magnifying glass in hand, scouring it for clues.

This September, DC Comics is turning it all the way back to zero, taking a look at what went on in the DCU before the New 52. Like we did a year ago with the first month of DC’s new universe, we’re going to give you some looks at all the "Zero Month" titles coming out over the next few weeks.

So here we go:

This week’s comics are once again dominated by a slew of "Zero Month" issues out of DC Comics. The most anticipated? SWORD OF SORCERY #0, which brings writer Christy Marx into the DCU. Beyond raising the female writing ratio on DC books by 33% (don’t check our math on that), Marx is right in her wheelhouse with a new take on Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld. There’s also a Beowulf back-up by Tony Bedard, so yay, fantasy!

"Batman Incorporated" "Zero Month" promo art

In September, to celebrate the anniversary of their "New 52," DC Comics has announced they will have a "0 Month" -- numbering every comic in the New 52 with a #0. While DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras promises every issue will reveal "something surprising," they will also be stand-alone stories. Says Harras:

"Some issues will tell the origins of a character or a team, or in some case where an origin has already been told, they will fill in the blanks in terms of questions readers may have about the New 52 DC Universe."

The comics publisher also announced 4 new titles to debut in September, featuring creators and characters familiar to DC readers -- as well as some new faces! Read More...
