From DC Source blog :

Starting today, Wonder Woman will appear like you’ve never seen her before.

As you may have seen in THE NEW YORK TIMES, bestselling artist and DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee has redesigned her costume for the modern era, just in time for BABYLON 5 creator and critically acclaimed writer J. Michael Straczynski and artists Don Kramer and Michael Babinski to launch the Amazon Princess into an exciting and epic new era of adventure.

Starting with their story in WONDER WOMAN #600, which is in comic shops today, JMS and Kramer will begin a run that is both forward-looking and true to the legendary character, planting her firmly in the modern era. But enough about what I have to say. Mr. Straczynski took some time out of his schedule to lay out some of his plans for WONDER WOMAN right here on The Source. So, without further adieu, take it away, Joe:

Suppose you woke up one morning, or turned a corner, and suddenly the life you had been leading up to that moment…was not the life you were leading.

Suppose someone went back in time and changed one thing, and it changed your life to the point that you had little or no memory of what life had been like before the change happened. What would you do to get it back? Should you get it back? Who did it? And maybe more important…why did they do it?

E3 Nintendo Conference


Today at the E3 Expo held its Nintendo Conference. Initially, I was skeptical as to how Nintendo was going to handle their presentation. After all, this presentation needed to please both Nintendo's casual fans and their core base. Personally, I consider myself a part of that core base. By the end of their Presentation I was blown away at the announcements, including the revealing of the Nintendo 3DS.

These Announcements included:

1) Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii)

2) Goldeneye (Wii)

3) Mario Sports Mix (Wii)

4) Epic Mikey (Wii)

5) Golden Sun (DS)

6) Wii Party

7) Kid Icarus: Uprising (3DS)

8) 3DS: Wifi capable, Wide top (3.5 inch display), Adjustable 3D, Motion Sensor, two camera lenses to take 3D photos, and much improved Graphics.

The New Aqualad

This week DC comics announced the coming of a NEW Aqualad. CCO Geoff Johns made a statement in regards to this new addition to the DCU.

"In the coming weeks in BRIGHTEST DAY, you’ll meet a new alien killer who will become J’onn J’onzz’s greatest enemy, a world where Hawkman and Hawkgirl will discover a great secret about their past, the mysterious and deadly Siren and a young hero who’s about to get world wide exposure this fall beyond comics – the all-new Aqualad.

When our YOUNG JUSTICE animated series for Cartoon Network was announced a few weeks ago (who ever thought we’d see an animated Miss Martian?! AW YEAH!) a lot of people asked who the new Aqualad was. And a lot of people thought they’d have to wait for the show to start. But you won’t.

Aqualad’s story actually begins in a few short weeks in BRIGHTEST DAY #4. I won’t tell you much yet, but I will tell you – he has no idea he’s about to become Aqualad. In fact, he lives in one of the driest places in America – Silver City, New Mexico."

The Countdown begins.


Morning all.
