    • DEVIL COMICS EDITORIALDEVIL COMICS ENTERTAINMENT Welcome to the seventeenth issue of Devil Comics Magazine where we will be exploring the creative changes of DC Comics, Forever Evil, the top November Solicitations, comic and film highlights. Solicitation Changes DC Comics needs to get its act together when it comes to writing advance solicitations. The current issue of Superman #23 was supposed to be written by Scott Lobdell with art by Kenneth Rocafort however we get Eddy Barrows and Jesus Merino. The issue is the first part of Psi-War and crosses over to Action Comics #24 which was solicited as another story. These last minute changes seems to indicate DC Comics is not a relevant publisher in the digital age. Film Highlights The next Superman film will bring Batman into the mix as Ben Affleck has been cast as the new Dark Knight and has signed on for multiple pictures including the Justice League.
    • DEVIL COMICS EDITORIAL Forever Evil The first event of the New 52 Forever Evil brings the Crime Syndicate of Earth-3 to Earth. Where an evil Justice League takes over the world and November carries 9 issues of the event. Eventually the heroes will return from Earth-3 and Earth 2 will get involved as the story escalates. Most of the tie-ins are raised to $3.99 including The Flash #25, Green Lantern Corps #25, and Nightwing #25 for Zero Year. Harley Quinn gets her own series beginning this month with issue zero. DC Comics also releases their $1 Essentials line to attract new readers to their titles. Following Forever Evil, Justice League of America will become Justice League Canada with writer Jeff Lemire and artist Mike McKone. DEVIL COMICS ENTERTAINMENT Film Highlights The next Superman film will bring Batman into the mix as Ben Affleck has been cast as the new Dark Knight and has signed on for multiple pictures including the Justice League. Comic Highlights - Catwoman #23 introduces the first appearance of the Joker’s Daughter - Captain America #10 introduces the new Nomad as well as the death of Sharon Carter in Dimension Z.

    • MARVEL COMICS TOP NOVEMBER 2013 SOLICITATIONS The first issue of Infinity is released as Marvel prepares for the aftermath of Inhumanity. The Builders are heading to Earth as the Avengers meet them head on in space as Thanos strikes Earth. The event ends in November where the Terrigen Mists are released and Inhumanity begins in December. The profile of the Inhumans is raised as the House of Black Bolt crumbles into different houses like the ones on the Game of Thrones. Following Marvel NOW! the titles seem to be fill-ins rather than building a larger story. The majority of the titles seem to be procrastinating until major events like the Avengers and New Avengers which build towards Infinity, the X-Men books build to Battle of the Atom, and the Ultimate titles build towards Cataclysm. The aftermath of these books slowly builds towards their 2014 events. These corporate-owned titles are less fresh than creator-owned titles which have more freedom and creativity. AVENGERS Infinity comes to a close as Earth faces off against Thanos. The House of Black Bolt crumbles. There are 10 tie-in issues to Infinity including the main event. Infinity #6 (Of 6) New Avengers #12 Avengers #23 Mighty Avengers #3 Infinity: Heist #4 (Of 4) Infinity: The Hunt #4 (Of 4) Guardians Of The Galaxy #9 Thunderbolts #18 Secret Avengers #11 Wolverine & The X-Men Annual #1
