The DC Daily Planet: Payment Plans, Perfidious Profligates, and Premieres

Everybody’s buzzing about DC this week, and for once, it’s for something done absolutely right. Let’s check in and see what the fuss is about, shall we?

The big news this week came on Tuesday in the shape of DC’s brand new payment plan for creators. The plan’s changes focus mainly on the allowance of royalties, which will now be determined by net revenue rather than book price. Most awesomely, colorists will now  be eligible for royalties and given credit on the book cover. Look for more on this thrilling saga from WWAC later today!

SIGN ME UP), The Flash (premiering Tuesday, October 7 at 8pm and piggybacking on Arrow the next night), and Gotham (teasing a new character: looks like it could a…cool reception *sunglasses gif*).

For our DCCCG players out there (and acronym enthusiasts everywhere), check out this update of the collectible card game Injustice: Gods Among Us. Twelve new missions and a bunch of new challenges, including Deathstroke, which doesn’t seemDC Bombshells like so much of a challenge as it does an ignominious and all-too-final end, but whatever floats your boat.

Geoff Johns was on Reddit on Tuesday night, answering questions and hinting at possible upcoming series’, including a Cyborg series (yes please), Justice League plans, and that thing that Gail Simone has been talking about for months but won’t give details on even though I NEED TO KNOW.

Finally, the DC Bombshells have been given prints of their very own. You can order 18″ x 24″ posters oftheretro-style pinups here. I need approximately all of them.

So how do you feel about DC this week? I feel pretty good. It’s nice to not be mad at you, DC. Now I don’t have to ask for that other half of my BFF heart necklace back. Keep up the good work!
