Title: Black Label
Post by: Perry on June 29, 2019, 06:26:24 AM
So maybe we should add "Black Label" to the "Vertigo" section header now that DC has canceled Vertigo? They are now putting all of their adult stuff under the new Black Label line, even though people are questioning how long that will last.

Anyway, I heard about a new Black Label title that I am certainly going to get. A 12 issue dark fantasy title written by this Phillip Kennedy Johnson guy (not familiar) and drawn by Riccardo Fedirici and that is the draw (excuse the pun) for me. I remember his stuff on Aquaman, after he took over for my boy Sejic, and I remember really enjoying his style. Mainly because it was kinda close to my boy Sejic's look
 ;D

Well I just saw HERE (https://www.bleedingcool.com/2019/06/28/the-last-god-a-new-dark-high-fantasy-series-at-dc-black-label-from-phillip-kennedy-johnson-and-riccardo-federici/), on BC, the info for this book "The Last God" and I like the premise of it. Kinda Lord of the Rings at first glance, but with a cool enough twist.
I did enjoy those preview pages/covers!

And I'm looking forward to one of these and really looking forward to the other one (psssttt ... it's the Question one), but I am sure Jeff is Super Looking forward to both, getting more of Lemire goodness HERE (https://www.newsarama.com/45977-lemire-sorrentino-cowan-and-sienkiewicz-tackle-joker-and-question-in-two-dc-black-label-series.html)

Oh yeah!  Lemire writing the Question?!?!?!  I am so onboard for that!

Not that interested in the Joker one, but you know Iíll pick it up just to see what Lemire does.

Yeah? I thought with Sorentino and him on a book your interest would be just as high as the Question. Either way I am sure, like me, we are talking small degrees of indifference with that. Even if it is the Joker
 ;D ;D ;D

Speaking of ... where the hell is the Three Jokers Story?

EDIT - just checked and DCU has the O'neil/Cowan Question up ... do I smell a older read for me? Sure, and maybe I will get to it in 2034
 ;D

For me itís just Joker burn out.  Theyíve used him way too much lately.  But I like the creators so Iím sure Iíll be excited after reading the first issue.

Oh yeah, I got ya. I feel the same way.
Joker is the ONLY DC villain though.

But if that gets Lemire back into your camp after him saying he will never do Big Two books again, you give him the damn Joker
