Alright so the Comic Con International: San Diego was just this past weekend and as expected offered up a wealth of trailers for films and television shows that we fill up the DVR with. Since I blasted so many in our direction yesterday I’ve decided that with all of The CW Television Network series to offer them up one per day alongside our regularly posting music content. Otherwise it will be too much television in a row and I like to mix it up. That said, here is the Official Trailer for “Arrow” Season Six.

As previously blogged about in the PiercingMetal Musings; DC Comics recently re-launched a number of titles and started them off from issue #1 under the branding of “The New 52”. The initiative’s prime objective being to up the number of titles available each month and to offer new readers an easier chance to jump on board with their characters. New costumes and beginnings are par for the course with the reboot but a number of the company’s most historic moments shall remain unaffected. The New 52 appears to have segmented the titles into a number of different groups based on the relation of the character – for instance there is a Superman and Batman grouping to enjoy and each title relates directly to the character. From these segments I have opted to share my thoughts on the first issues for your reading pleasure. The Justice League grouping gets a whopping eleven titles in the relaunch and that made immediate sense to me based on all of the characters that it needs to address. Green Lantern is not among them as he has his own grouping and the same applies to both Batman and Superman but believe me you have a lot to sink your teeth into without them. Check out what they are offering us: Justice League, Justice League International, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Captain Atom, The Fury Of Firestorm, The Savage Hawkman, Green Arrow, Mister Terrific, & DC Universe Presents.
The first two League books made sense to me but I was unsure about Captain Atom and Firestorm getting new titles for this one. There are more important characters to the whole of the DCU mythos such as The Atom or perhaps The Justice Society since those heroes are so relevant to the League beginnings. I also questioned the Mister Terrific title and while initially paused can understand the need to give Aquaman and Hawkman a title again. They are staples in the DCU after all. I managed to secure nine of the eleven titles and have offered up my views on them. Should I fill in the blanks of the missing entries, I shall append the blog posting post mortem.
