If the New 52 aren’t enough DC reboots for you, there’s also the DC Fifty-Too, Jon Morris’ new blog where he and a collection of indie cartoonists reimagine 52more DC characters in preparation for their own series. Morris explains the idea behind the blog thusly:
Once DC started releasing the cover images of what the New DC Universe would look like, it got me wondering what the New DC Universe would look like … if it were out of DC’s hands.
I contacted a plethora of very talented – and very different – cartoonists with a simple challenge: If DC approached you and offered you any DC property – past or present – of your choice to be your own new ongoing part of the DC Universe, what would the cover to the first issue look like?
First up, Indigo Kelleigh’s Blue Devil (which I would totally read) and TJ Kirsch’s Cryonic Man, for all the Batman and the Outsiders fans out there. Launching today, and with new characters and suggestions going up between now and August 31st – when the New 52 officially launches with Justice League #1 – this might be worth bookmarking. Especially if you’re a DC editor looking for new talent and new pitches.
