Artist / SG Member Name: James Curtis a.k.a. jimcurt99

Mission Statement: I just want to share. I started drawing as a sort of therapy; I really would go insane without it. After a while I discovered I could make people happy by drawing them, so that’s when I started doing strictly fan art. In the last year I’ve met some of my very best friends here, and I’m gonna keep drawing until I can’t draw no more.

The next round of DC’s New 52 has just hit stores, making it a perfect time to recap last week. Who knows, you might get to the store and decide to pick up one of last week’s issues today. That’s if you can find them. While most reviews of the comics have been pitched somewhere between ‘mediocre’ and ‘alright,’ the comics themselves are flying off the shelves. Comic sales all around are being boosted by the popularity of the New 52. This sudden burst of interest is likely to die out when we get to the second issues. There is just something about owning a first printing of a first issue that really gets the nerd juice flowing. Anyways the lesson here is, if you think you want one of the new comics, and it’s available, get it now; it likely won’t be there when you change your mind (as happened to me with Superboy #1).

Putting the critical vs. commercial success of the comics aside, many of the issues took to handling lingering problems in the DC Universe. For those readers expecting to come in to an entirely new reboot, it is a bit of a shock to learn there is still so much backstory being consolidated in the wake of Flash Point. Issues like Green Lantern #1 come straight into an already active story line, and are not as friendly for new readers. Whereas Batwoman, possibly the best drawn of the available New 52, can only tackle fragments of the active story because they needed to catch readers up. (Which I will note, they did very nicely.)

Some of the comics are handling it better than others, a fine example being Suicide Squad. After so much outrage over Harley Quinn’s outfit on the cover, the comic turned out to be a pleasant surprise for many. It was one of the few that felt like a real origins story, making it accessible to even the newest readers. Aside from the unnecessary body trimming performed on Amanda Waller, this was my favorite comic of the lot.

As if the release of so many simultaneous first issue comics was not enough, it seems DC intends to keep pushing the boundaries. Almost as if in response to Marvel’s introduction of an ethnic Spider-Man, DC has announced a new openly gay Mexican as an edition to the Teen Titans. Miguel Jose Barragan, or Bunker, is DC’s first flamboyantly gay superhero, and unlike most homosexual superheros, Bunker embraces his sexuality at all times.

That wasn’t the end of the week’s news from DC either. Moving forward with the recent trend, DC Universe Online will be getting a free-to-play model. Starting in October, DCU will be joining the ranks of the free-to-play MMO.

With all the buzz around DC in the last few weeks, it’s odd to think that any DC related news is being held back. But it turns out that Christopher Nolan isn’t as eager to share his story as the rest of the DC world. Word is that Nolan is refusing to write the ending to The Dark Knight Rises on paper. Wanting to keep the internet safe from ending ruining spoilers posted by evil twits with nothing else to do with their time (a.k.a. people like me), Nolan is only sharing the ending verbally with select cast members. While this is probably a great idea, I’m going to continue to assume it involves Bane breaking Batman’s back, or critically injuring him in another way (at least that’s how it should end).

Leaving the superhero news behind, this past week was a big one for gamers as well. The release of Gears of War 3 was the icing on the cake following the Tokyo Game Show. From previewing the new 3DS Second Slide Pad to more details and screen caps on the PS Vita, the TGS featured it all. For more info, hit Kotaku’s complete TGS coverage.

The constant coverage of any talk surrounding the new Evil Dead has left us knowing only one thing for sure, we have no idea what to expect. First it was thought to be an addition to the series, and then a reboot of the first movie. Now the latest reports say that it won’t even have the character Ash Williams. I’m kind of pleased to hear that Bruce Campbell will forever remain our Ash, but if Ash isn’t the lead in the reboot, can it even be called a reboot? Right now it’s looking more like a modern revisiting rather than a direct reboot or remake.

Do you constantly find yourself wishing there was something on cable to watch? Fans of The Simpsons may soon not have to worry about that dilemma. The longest-running prime time scripted series in America may be getting its own channel. That’s right, The Simpsons reruns 24/7, it’s almost enough to make me want cable again.

One final tidbit to really shake you down to your nerd-core: William Shatner has decided to share his views on exactly why Star Trek is better than Star Wars. He inspires a rather disturbing mental image, when he talk of uniting the two rivals. Not sure I’m ready to witness him and Carrie Fischer (Princess Leia) hooking up for some sweet intergalactic lovin’.

From The Archives: Kirby Dick – This Film Is Not Yet Rated

“We had to do this 100% legal.”
- Kirby Dick

Kirby Dick has fired a massive cannonball in the war against censorship. It’s called This Film Is Not Yet Rated, and it came into being when the Oscar nominated documentary filmmaker decided to call the Motion Picture Association of America out on their bullshit lies. He hired a private investigator to determine who the MPAA ratings and appeals boards are actually composed of. It turns out that almost nothing the MPAA has said about their members is true.
