You will notice down below a number of new #1 issues coming from DC Comics, springing out of their post-Convergence initiative currently titled DC YOU. While I think that name is maybe not the best, I am hopeful that DC achieves its stated goal of diversifying their line-- not only with a greater representation of genders and races in their stories, but with a commitment to telling different kinds of stories from different kinds of genres with different tones. If they do this right, everyone benefits! Also, they have sent us some really cool promo materials to go with this launch, if you like that kinda thing make sure you check it out!
In other news, there is a new interview with me that has just hit the internets. Local writer Brandon Clarkson and I chatted about the state of the union at Velocity, and comics in general (spoiler: comics are pretty great right now), and is available for your consumption here: http://brandonclarkson.com/

Last Call-- here are the books for which our orders lock ( ) night! Let us know if you have any you’d like to add to your list:
MULAN: REVELATIONS (Dark Horse) This has nothing to do with the cartoon. Chinese class warfare sci-fi by the looks of it.
GREEN LANTERN: THE LOST ARMY (DC) I guess the universe thinks the GL Corps are dead, and this reveals where they really are.
JUSTICE LEAGUE 3001 (DC) Picking up from the previous run!
WE ARE ROBIN (DC) Gotham City kids uniting to fight the good fight. Looks very promising.
8HOUSE ARCLIGHT (Image) Brandon Graham’s newest endeavor creates a new fantasy world, with several books spotlighting different realms.
AGE OF ULTRON VS. MARVEL ZOMBIES (Marvel) I got way more stoked about this after reading Secret Wars #2 and seeing the place on Battleworld these two properties hold.
E IS FOR EXTINCTION (Marvel) Revisiting Grant Morrison era X-Men, written by Chris Burnham, his most oft-used artist these days. Sign me up!
KORVAC SAGA (Marvel) The original GOTG team cavorting through Battleworld.
X-MEN ‘92 (Marvel) Based on the version of the X-men from the beloved 90s cartoon.
