ADVENTURE COMICS Featuring SUPERBOY #1 by Jordan Gibson

Jordan Gibson is a freelance artist and a contributor at Project:Rooftop ( To find more of his work, check out 

Jordan says: I figured the next step for Connor would be to join the Legion of Superheroes with Krypto in tow, though I wouldn't feature them in every issue. I want to get back to the old Adventure Comics, where Superboy and Krypto can basically go anywhere in space and time to have a crazy, fun adventure! For his new costume, I tried to combine his original 90s costume with the sensibility of the Legion cartoon, while still letting him keep his t-shirt.

Superboy (Kon-El) was created by Karl Kesell and Tom Grummett. Read more...

LOBO INC #1 by Kyle Strahm

Kyle Strahm is an illustrator and comic book artist based in Kansas City, Missouri. He most recently provided interior artwork for Hack/Slash #5 from Image Comics and a backup story in last month's Screamland #3, also from Image.

Kyle says: Yo, bro. We did it for the 'Bo. The Giffen/Grant/Bisley Lobo stories of the early '90s have long been some of my favorite comics. The frantic, over-the-top, jam-packed artwork has majorly influenced my own. Lobo was my only choice for this project. And this was a great chance to work again with colorist Mark Englert and letterer Crank! with whom I'd collaborated on Hack/Slash earlier this year. They delivered in a major way. Thanks, guys!

Lobo was created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen. Read more...

WEIRD WAR TALES #1 by Jake Ekiss

Jake Ekiss is a founding member of Space-Gun Studios and a graduate of the University of North Texas Drawing and Painting Program. Jake has gone on to work for companies such as The Gamers' Conglomerate, Study Island, Titan Comics, and Digital Webbing. He is currently producing his own webcomic Solomon Azua, which was nominated for a Glyph Award in 2011.

Jake says: Michael Salvadore went into the military because he was supposed to, because it was expected, because he had nothing better to do. Two years in, he was sent to the Gulf, to Kuwait. There he saw it. The face of death, ghost of blood, the nightmare that walked. Ever since he's been a changed man. Now he's got something better to do. Death is his new commander, and his mission is commander's eyes only. Michael follows an unseen path to find the scars of violence in our world, to find the hidden, deadly things. To find his new squad. He'll gather them, recruit them, one by one. And when he has them, then they'll fight... the Weird War.

Weird War Tales was a supernatural war book published by DC Comics. Read more...

Jamie Fay is a artist/inker living in New York, NY. He's the co-creator of the new comicbook series, NeverMInds, from Drumfish Productions. Jamie's work has also appeared in the Sentinels Anthology, and many other indie titles. To check out more of Jamie's art, visit To find out more about NeverMinds and other Drumfish Productions series, visit

Jamie says: I was first introduced to the Legion with the maxiseries, LEGION LOST. I loved the characters, the art and the story. I was hooked from that point. That era of the Legion is MY Legion. Instead of staying with the status quo, as they are in the new series, I would go back to the Post-Reboot Era, that ran from 1994-2004, where the characters had more original names. Lightning Lad was Livewire. Phantom Girl was Apparition. And so on.  The big thing that I would do is get rid of the flight rings and replace them with flight belts. The Legion insignia would really make them all look uniform and allow flight. I would also compress the different Legion universes, allowing us to use characters that would never meet.

When creating my team, I knew I had to start with the big 3: Livewire, Saturn Girl, and Cosmic Boy. From there I added Legion mainstays Ultra Boy, Apparition, Brainiac 5, Triad and Chameleon. From the Post-Reboot Era, I added Sensor, Gates, Kid Quantum and Monstress. From the current titles, I added Dragonwing and Comet Queen, who I think have really shined. From the Cartoon Series, I merged Timberwolf with a few of his comicbook counterparts. I love that I had a chance to use some great characters that I am missing in the current titles, like Monstress, Sensor and Kid Quantum. All very cool characters that no one is using. If I could have, I would have added Umbra, Wildfire, DawnStar, Bouncing Boy, Leviathan(aka Shrinking Violet), Shikari and Dreamer. And the list would go on and on.

For their costumes, they are all a merging of costumes from the different universes, to help show they have all been made into one. Take Saturn Girl, whose costume is a mixture of her Post-Reboot Era and her Threeboot Era costumes. Cosmic Boy is a mixture of his Original, Post-Reboot and Current costumes. I really wanted to show the merging and also add in some of my own flair to the costumes.

When it came to coloring this piece, I had to go with one of the best colorists I've had the honor of working with, Danielle St. Pierre. Danielle is the current colorist on my book NeverMinds and she really adds so much to every piece she takes on. She adds so much depth and form with her coloring skills that really make the characters pop off the page. Thanks so much for another beautiful collabration, Danielle! To checkout Danielle's work, please go to so you can see first hand how amazing she is.

PREZ #1 by Jake Ekiss

Colors and title treatment by Paul Milligan

Jake Ekiss is a founding member of Space-Gun Studios and a graduate of the University of North Texas Drawing and Painting Program. Jake has gone on to work for companies such as The Gamers' Conglomerate, Study Island, Titan Comics, and Digital Webbing. He is currently producing his own webcomic Solomon Azua, which was nominated for a Glyph Award in 2011.

Jake says: It's the second decade of the new millenium, and the last place anyone thought there would be a violent youth revolt was the United States. After months of tense political stalemate punctuated by crippling social turmoil, a deal was reached. The minimum age to hold office was lowered, and in 2016, the youngest president ever, 17 year old Alejandra Perez "Prez" was elected to the highest office in the land. With the youth revolt still smoldering, and the country on the verge of schism or collapse, all the weight of our dreams, of our children's dreams, rest on one girl.

Prez was created by Joe Simon and Jerry Grandetti. Read more...

THE SPECTRE #1 by Tait Howard

Tait Howard is a comic artist and recent graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design. He lives in Seattle where he spends all day drawing and all night partying. You can see more of his work at and email him

Tait says: The Spectre has always been one of my favorite DC characters, but also one of the most frustrating for me. Hes basically god, he can do whatever he wants and his power is limitless, but for some reason hes always just hanging out on earth butting into other peoples business. It sort of makes sense that he'd stay on earth because each iteration of The Spectre has been a human, but i feel like if I were given ultimate power I'd go see what was going on in the rest of the universe or other universes or whatever. Earth already has superman and batman and whatever, they can probably take care of themselves. My version of The Spectre would just be this cosmic adventurer dude who wants to see and learn everything there is to learn in the universe, so this is him on his intergalactic whip riding around with some space worms.

The Spectre was created by Jerry Siegel and Bernard Bailey. Read more...

The Big Announcement! Coming in October, it's ...

I've been teasing a couple of "big announcements" regarding DC Fifty-Too on my Twitter account in the last two weeks, without giving much of a clue what's going on.

The response to DC Fifty-Too has been tremendous, and it felt kind of sad to let the project wind down. With the "official" 52 DC covers having debuted last month and this "Bonus Fifty-Too" wrapping up in the next week, the end was pretty near.

However, some of the artists involved with the first leg of the project contacted me and suggested a new theme, so without further ado, here's Big News Part One:

Debuting October 3, it's...

Starting Monday, October 3 in this here blog, many of the artists involved with the original DC Fifty-Too take their talents to the competition, and bring you their take on a wholly relaunched Marvel Universe - around 70 new Number One Issues from their dream Marvel Comics lineup!

I can promise new work from Buster Moody (Manhunter 2070), Mike Norton (Blue Beetles), Dieter Van der Ougstraete (Sea Devils), Charles Guthrie (Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love), Neal von Flue (Kid Eternity) and a host of others, plus some of the artists who were invited to participate in DC Fifty-Too but missed out, including Ryan Browne, Les McClaine, Steve Harrison and many more!

As a side note - this is an invite-only event running through the month of October, we won't be taking submissions ... just yet. BUT! Stay tuned during MARVEL UNIVERSE TOO -WHAT IF during October for another Big Announcement on how you can participate in future projects (that's right, there's more coming)!

Thanks folks, see you in October - and stick around in September for more DC FIFTY-TOO!

Alex says: I love Clayface. My first introduction to him was in the Bruce Timm Batman cartoon in the 90's. I have always thought he was a great, tortured character that had a lot of potential. Sympathetic villains are the greatest villains. So my cover strips him of all of that. 

Clayface (Matt Hagen) was created by Bill Finger and Sheldon Moldoff. Read more...

DIAL H FOR HERO #1 by Bill Walko

Bill Walko
You might recognize Bill Walko's art from comic-related sites such as Project: Rooftop,, or CBR's Comics Should Be Good. His lively renditions of classic comic book characters - including the Teen Titans, X-Men and the Wonder Twins - have tickled the fancy of comic fandom. 

But in the past year, Bill has also focused his talents toward his own comic. Imagine your office, bitten by a radioactive spider. That’s The Hero Business, a comic chronicling the day-to-day adventures of an agency that caters exclusively to super-heroes (and their super-egos). Because with great power comes great marketability.

Bill says: I think DC missed an opportunity to create some books in their "new 52" that evoke the feeling of a Cartoon Network series, utilizing some of their many untapped characters. It would have been a nice opportunity to capture the attention of Young Adult readers who may enjoy watching "Avatar: The Last Airbender," "Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated" or "Ben 10."

I'd love to re-invent the Dial H for Hero concept as a spooky mystery-adventure series, rather than a super-hero series. With that in mind, Chris and Vicki would transform into various creatures of myth for their hourly H-dialing. It would be a ground-up approach, where the teen protagonists fight creepy-crawly menaces in the New England town of Fairfax. I'd also introduce some recurring allies, adversaries and mysterious persons whose true allegiances are in question. Little by little, we'd reveal the secret mythology of the H Dials, dating back through Fairfax' strange history. 

Here's a fun sample solicit:

Dial H For Hero #1
Written by Bill Walko • Art by Bill Walko
On sale SEPTEMBER  • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
In the sleepy town of Fairfax, Maine, mystery and adventure await two unsuspecting teenagers.On a dare, Chris King and Vicki Grant brave a haunted house to discover a pair of mystical "H Dials." The duo quickly learn the awesome powers these talismans wield, and set out to unravel the secrets behind their origins. But Chris, Vicki and their friends soon discover that these secrets are being protected by a powerful force - and the gang may have dialed up more danger than they ever imagined!

LEGION OF SUPER-PETS #1 by Brodie Brockie

Brodie H. Brockie
is a writer and illustrator living in Ann Arbor, MI. He's the co-founder of the long-running comedy site, Cap'n Wacky's Boatload of Fun. His writing has also appeared in Myspace/Dark Horse Presents, McSweeney's Created in Darkness by Troubled Americans, among other curious corners of the internet. For more than you care to know about Brodie, visit

Brodie says: The Super-Pets have reunited and are ready to take on the cases the super-humans miss in all corners of the DC Universe. Krypto the Super-Dog leads his teammates Streaky the sassy Super-Cat, Beppo the silly Super-Monkey, and Comet the steadfast Super-Horse in this series of single-issue, all-ages-friendly stories. The people of the DC Universe have learned they can count on their heroes. Now the animals of the DC Universe are learning that when they need help, they can call on the Legion of Super-Pets! Sometimes the Super-Pets get themselves into trouble too (like in this first issue when Streaky gets tricked into pulling some thefts for Catwoman). Several issues will spin off of events in other DC comics (though reading those other comics will never be necessary) as the Super-Pets clean up trouble off to the side of what the super-heroes are dealing with. Comedy, adventure, and adorable animals team up in the Legion of Super-Pets!

Since a lot of costumes were redesigned as part of the relaunch, I have drastically altered Krypto and Streaky's outfits - getting rid of the yellow collars and replacing them with blue ones instead.  I thought about also giving them really clunky boots, but they wouldn't stand for it.

The Legion of Super-Pets was created by a buncha different people. Read more...

Andrew says: I'm a huge Batman Beyond and Bruce Timm  fan. The way they moved the concept/story into the future while still respecting and keeping the integrity of the original concept was genius. In my, The New 52 version, I didn't change much. The story and characters would essentially be the same, while I would revamp the style and art direction to give it a more Metal Gear Solid/Blade Runner/Matrix hybrid approach. I feel that out of all the series in the DCU, this one needs to look and feel fresh and hi-tech.

Batman Beyond was created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini. Read more...

POWER GIRLS #1 by Caanan Grall

Caanan Grall does the Eisner-nominated webcomic, Max Overacts, at where he is desperately trying to raise the funds to self publish the first collection through IndieGoGo. He also had his first book, Celadore, published last year from DC's defunct Zuda Comics and mixes it up every week with a bunch of other great artists as a part of The Line: It Is Drawn sketch challenge, under the watchful eye of Brian Cronin, at the Comics Should Be Good blog on You may have also seen his 24 hour comic viral hit, Muppet Thor.

Caanan says: Forget everything you know about Power Girl. Her origin is as messy as a box of Christmas lights, and, well... Supergirl already exists in the DCnU, so this is an all new Power Girl.

At the age of 15, Sam Sorelle doesn't have your normal teen life. She doesn't have time for boys, malls, or even school. She follows her radical, documentarian parents around the globe, learning by living. But on an extended shoot in the Pacific Ocean, while they let her out to film B roll by herself for the first time, an alien space ship crashes in the water right in front of her.

Seeing someone in the ship, Sam jumps in the ocean to save the alien who, it turns out, is a young Kryptonian survivor named Kara Zan-Oh, who escaped with her parents. (Who were obviously smarter than Superman's - because these guys built a ship that could save the whole family unit! Not just sending your only child in to oblivion to live or die. This isn't a religious text, ya know.) Anyway, after Krypton blew up, they became interplanetary drifters. Traders. Shooting around, visiting strange planets, collecting alien artifacts. Eventually, coincidentally, after 15 years or so, Kara's parents were killed in a space pirate attack, leaving her to escape on her own, which is how she made it to Earth.

She joins the activist family who much resemble her own drifter parents, even taking their last name. Now, with Earth her new home, Kara Sorelle must master her new yellow sun powers, while Sam learns how to handle all that wonderful alien tech they rescued from the ruined spacecraft. Together, they will help the Earth... Together, they are Power Girls!

SUPERGIRL #1 by Eric Johnston

Eric Johnston has been a hobby artist for almost 8 years now. I got my start trying to recreate scenes from the popular anime "Cowboy Bebop" and have since moved onto making my own self published comicbook "Artemis".  When it comes to comics, I don't there is anyone who is a bigger Superman/Supergirl fan than I.

Eric says:  After hearing the description on Supergirl's relaunched origin, I couldn't help my make my own version.  I've grown up hearing how Supergirl was a troubled soul always struggling to figure out her place in the world.  I wanted to show a more relaxed cute Supergirl.  Someone with an excitement for life and fondness for helping others.  Of course because this is the first cover, it had to be iconic and also set the scene for the series which is why she is over Metropolis.

Supergirl was created by Otto Binder and Curt Swan.

His 24-Hour Comic Day trilogy, "The God of Rock" is currently running as a webcomic at You can see more of his artwork online at

Paul says: Welcome to Wildcat's - the most dangerous dive in the DCU. In the newly combined DC/Wildstorm universe semi-retired superhero Wildcat (a.k.a. Ted Grant) opens a "superheroes only" bar called Wildcat's. This new bar is built on the same location where the notorious Clark's Bar & Grille once stood before it was burned to the ground during a massive superhuman brawl. Working at the bar are Cole Cash (Grifter), Zannah (Zealot) and Priscilla Kitaen (Voodoo), all former members of the WildC.A.T.S. who now run a mercenary business and secret war against the reemerging Daemonite threat out of the backroom of the bar. In this new universe where the WildC.A.T.S. existed alongside the DC heroes, Zealot and Ted Grant met and fought together (and sometimes against each other) during WWII. In turn Ted Grant was once a mentor to a teenage Grifter and taught him and his younger brother Max to box.

In a back-up feature Grifter's brother Max Cash (Condition Red) is a private detective who will take on just about any case, no matter how bizarre, as long as the price is right. But the biggest case for Max, and the one that consumes his every non-billable hour, is finding out why he's not as dead as he used to be.

HAYWIRE #1 by Kiel West

Kiel says: Dear Mr Stephen. Majorsky,
Our research team has thoroughly reviewed your case. We'd like to thank you for letting us help you and hope the results of our analysis will guide you to a restful solution in the near future.

We've narrowed your concerns down to two major  topics: 

1. Your soreness and complete lack of energy upon waking from a full night's sleep.
2. The seemingly random appearance of cuts and bruises on your body. We started with the obvious suspect: Sleepwalking. 

We were correct in our suspicion, however it must be stated that what was viewed on the video footage recorded from your apartment has shocked and deeply disturbed our team.The footage reveals you leaving your bed, getting fully dressed and exiting your apartment. You returned approximately 6-7 hours later completely disheveled and apparently wounded. You repeated this every night for the duration of our analysis.

We felt for your own safety, it would be best to have some of our team members follow you during your nightly escapades without your knowledge. The reports we received back have greatly alarmed us. Apparently you were followed to the local dump. What happens next defies explanation, so please bear with me. You began to glow from each o your extremities, and seconds later, from various heaps of garbage, flew large pieces of blue metal, which collected on your person into what appears to be some kind of robotic armor. Once this was finished, you returned to the streets. Using the tracking device we asked you to wear, our team managed to collect photographs of several encounters you made, fully clad in the blue armor, with whom can only be described as unsavory, criminal-type individuals. Though we do not know the nature of their activities, or their relationship to you, each meeting seems to have ended in grisly death. One of our team members who witnessed one such event, gave us this account: "The guy caught this punk making off with a car stereo. He shot him from across the street with some kind of mini-harpoon that came out of his forearm. Then he walked over and just went totally haywire. He beat the guy with those huge metal fists until he was practially a puddle."

We are obligated to inform you of the illegality of such activities. Please call us as soon as you receive this letter, as we are concerned for the well being of all parties involved.

New participants: The door is (temporarily) closed ...

Since DC Fifty-Too started, I've been fielding as many as a dozen emails every day from folks who are interested in participating, asking to reserve a title, or even sending me completed covers. It's great! It's been really rewarding to see folks excited enough about DC Fifty-Too to want to participate.

However, so that I don't end up curating this blog until doomsday, I'm afraid I've shut the door to new participants at present.

However, don't despair! In the next couple of weeks, there will be an announcement on this blog regarding a means for everyone to participate (plus a whole new curated event coming down the pipeline)!

It's really been wonderful to hear from so many people who have gotten really excited about the project, so I hope you'll all stick around as DC Fifty-Too moves on to its next stages!
