Issue 256 marks te debut of Simon Bisley as the regular cover artist of Hellblazer, and in September he will do interior artwork for also. Until them I’m still trying to figure out what’s my opinion about the cover. I was already thinking in pick up Hellblazer when Peter Milligan started writing it, maybe I’ll try the issues Bisley art.

This month was the celebration of the 2nd aniversary of the Eisner-winning webcomics anthology “MySpace Dark Horse Presents”, but due to the problems that Myspace has faced, the antology wasn’t published there, instead this month it’s available at Dark Horse e-comics section.
CBR News has confirmed that following a very public round of layoffs that saw over 400 people lose their jobs last month – including every single person associated with comic book content – MySpace.com is presently unable to accommodate Dark Horse’s latest virtual issue of “Dark Horse Presents,” which includes new work from Gilbert Hernandez as well as Joss Whedon & Jo Chen, who debut this week a brand new “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” story created exclusively for the online anthology.
I’m excited with WEDNESDAY COMICS, first is the kind of superhero project I like and the fanboys hate, a reader friendly project that doesn’t requires a degree in advanced DC Chronology to enjoy, it’s just good stories by good authors, and then there’s the format, it’s huge. Being used to the metric system I didn’t realize how big 14″ x 20″ was until I saw the picture of Bob Wayne with a mock up. It’s just 4 times the size of a regular comic.

As we construct/reconstruct the material, and rebuild the audience, the new series/chapters will come out. In a perfect world, we will have Power and Glory come out this year, and either Black Kiss or a new chapter of American Flagg! hit the first half of next year, and then the other the second half. Then either the end of next year or year after, Midnight Men and the final two Chaykin chapters of Flagg! There may be more to be discussed, but I want to take this in bite sized chunks. Not just for our sake, but for Howard, the retailers and for fans sake. We want to be fair to all
The Power & Glory trade which collects the four issues of the original miniseries is due in stores in September and will run over 120 pages with a $19.99 cover price. In September DC is also releasing a new printing of Chaykin’s Blackhawk. It’s a good month for Chaykin’s fans. Now the only thing that bugs me is the fact that the Power & Glory trade doesn’t include the Special!?
Newsarama has a quick interview with Chaykin about the upcoming Dynamite releases.
