Bendis takes over all the Supermans as Jinxworld moves to DC and a “curated” imprint from the writer looms.
Former Marvel stalwart Brian Michael Bendis’ first work for DC will be on Action Comics #1000, but it won’t be his last opportunity to tug on Superman’s cape.
DC Comics has announced the writer’s plans at his new home, which includes a whole lot of Superman, the return of his Jinxworld books and a brand-new “curated” imprint. They’ll also release a 25-cent sampler, called DC Nation #0, spotlighting not only Bendis’ work but that of his fellow writers Tom King and Scott Snyder.

“Hellboy” creator MIke Mignola teams up with Adam Hughes, Chris Roberson, Christopher Mitten, Ben Stenbeck and more to tell new stories about Rasputin, Krampus and Koshchei the Deathless.
The “Mignolaverse” will continue to grow this coming winter with a pair of miniseries and a one-shot focusing on some of the unsavory characters Hellboy has encountered — namely Rasputin, Krampus and Koshchei the Deathless.
“We didn’t set out to publish three stories about bad guys for the holidays, it just worked out that way—and, really, at least one of these guys isn’t ALL bad,” Mignola said in a press release. “It’s been a real pleasure working with Chris Roberson and Christopher Mitten again to flesh out more of the history of the Hellboy world—focusing on Rasputin before the arrival of Hellboy. You just knew there had to be more to say about that guy. Just like I’ve always known there was a lot more to say about Koshchei the Deathless, who I’ve loved since Hellboy: Darkness Calls. Now thanks to the great Ben Stenbeck, we get his full, odd, and tragic life story. And then what is there to say about the Krampus? This grim little Christmas story has been gathering dust for years on my mental shelf, apparently just waiting for the right artist to come along and ask to draw it. I just never imagined that the right artist would be Adam Hughes!”

Archie Comics will offer #TeamBetty and #TeamVeronica shirts at Comic-Con, so pick your side now.
With Archie’s new “Betty & Veronica” comic by Adam Hughes arriving in stores this week, it makes sense that Archie Comics would put some promotion behind it at Comic-Con International, which also arrives this week in San Diego. So what better way than asking attendees to declare their allegiance to their favorite?
Per their blog, Archie will sell #TeamBetty and #TeamVeronica T-shirts and lanyards at the convention:
And for those who like both equally (yeah, right), they’re offering a “neutral” Betty and Veronica shirt, featuring artwork by Hughes:
All shirts will be available at the Archie Comics Booth #1829 for $25. Lanyards are $5 each.
