COUNTDOWN AND PAUL DINI FEATURED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES

The May 26 New York Times features an article on comics that includes coverage of COUNTDOWN with quotes from head writer Paul Dini.

LOS ANGELES TIMES LOOKS AT MINX, THE PLAIN JANES AND RE-GIFTERS

The May 27 Los Angeles Times features an article on Minx with callouts to THE PLAIN JANES and RE-GIFTERS.

Writer Susan Carpenter calls THE PLAIN JANES “a story that is far more surprising and layered than you might expect from a book with so few words. Just as [Jim] Rugg’s crisp pen-and-ink drawings seem to take advantage of an entire color spectrum between black and white, [Cecil] Castellucci’s story explores the highs and lows of an alienated teen’s trek toward self-discovery.

Carpenter adds, “Filled with unexpected but emotionally believable plot twists that are true to modern urban living, THE PLAIN JANES and RE-GIFTERS are a strong start for the new Minx imprint. Whether this new genre will last as long as the many superhero franchises that have dominated comics remains to be seen, but DC is onto something good.”

TESTAMENT #20 TO BE RESOLICITED

TESTAMENT #20 (MAY070242) will be resolicited in the July Previews for September instore. All previous orders are cancelled. The series will continue on a bimonthly schedule.
