WHAT IS DC FIFTY-TOO?
With DC FIFTY-TOO having proven so popular, a bunch of the artists involved decided to try their hands at the other big company out there, so welcome to MARVEL UNIVERSE TOO: WHAT IF – Marvel Comics reimagined by a wide array of independent artists.
About DC FIFTY-TOO:
As you’ve probably heard, DC Comics is relaunching their entire line of superhero comics, fifty-two all new titles starting (or starting over) at the first issue. Most of their characters are getting new looks, some are getting streamlined or updated histories, and some older and more obscure characters are getting a turn in the spotlight.
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?
Fifty-two artists (and then some) responded, and that brings us here – DC FIFTY-TOO, The New DC Universe as imagined by fifty-two independent cartoonists. Starting on August 15th and running up through August 31st – the day the New DC Universe launches – this blog will unveil four new covers every weekday for DC Comics that never were but probably ought to have been!
