What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics?

Apparently a 150% price hike on DC titles with 5G: According to rumors the new price at DC will be $7.99.

What I've heard from one source is that DC's 5G will have the monthly books filled with younger replacement heroes for the classic DC heroes. Said classic heroes like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman will instead be appearing in "prestige format books" that will be a bit thicker and cost the 8 bucks you mentioned.

So DC will essentially be flooding their books with "hip new heroes" and force people to pay extra for the characters they actually enjoy.

Somewhat amusingly, the big finale of Event Leviathan was spoiled a month ago by DC's screwy Jimmy Olsen book. Which speaks volumes of the amount of editorial oversight that the company possesses. Or possibly they've stopped pretending to care.

I'm flipped through the Jimmy Olsen book, and it basically looked like everything I hate about Deadpool, Harley Quinn, Squirrel Girl and Gwenpool all on steroids.

I'm almost afraid to ask, but how did it end?

As Jimmy said, Leviathan is Manhunter (Mark Shaw) completely ignoring any previous characterization he has ever received. He gets exposed in the Daily Planet, and says, "okay, fine, I'll burn the world instead of fixing it". Cue "To Be Continued in some other comic".

I'd say the best place would be starting a thread about HBO Watchmen in the Movies and TV forum.

Just a reminder to everyone of what Rule #1 of Echoes is.

1) Respect each other. That is the simplest way to put it. Remember that you're a human being and so are the people you're interacting with on here. Everyone deserves the same respect you yourself desire. The best moderation is self-moderation, so please try to keep things civil. That means:
• No aggressive or passive-aggressive attacks on members here, no matter how indirect or veiled.

Do NOT insult fellow board members, Voltron64. This is a warning.
