Buncha new DC books/Dark Matter
« on: April 21, 2017, 05:30:02 AM »

Saw this at KMC. If there's a thread about it i havent seen it.

They all seem fairly generic.
The challengers is the only one interesting to me, and only to see how they tie in/ignore history.


The Immortal Men





Silencer





Damage





Sideways





New Challengers

   Challengers of the Unknown is one of those concepts I always thought could be great if it got the right writer. 
   Maybe this time....

Damage interests me because of the time cap on the powers. Also, is the creature sentient? Totally mindless?

More details:


EDIT: NVN - missed the link.

^^^No sweat.

Just thought i'd share. Like i said, yhe concepts seem generic to me. The creative teams will likely bail after 1, maybe 2 arcs; if these books are still going in a year i'll be surprised.

I'm all for new characters to read, DC has to be willing to support through the start up, which, yeah, I don't foresee.

^^^same here on all counts.

Maybe something good will come of it. Hell, Hitman came from a pretty awful DC event meant to push new generic characters.



Granted, none of these creators are Ennis...

Jim Lee might be up there though. His influence is undisputed and he certainly has a talent for design which I would say surpasses his drawing skills.

I actually think his designs are hit and miss. He's definitely missing here. Its like he pulled from some unused 90s WILDcats stuff for this project.
He'll also be the first to bail, IMHO.

At the same time, look at his Batsuit, or his X-Men run - which I consider to be definitive to this day. And yeah, he's bailing first because he has the most options on where to go.
