DC Wednesday Comics editor Mark Chiarello protects Mr. Media from Superman and USA Today ‘for old time’s sake’!
(The following was adapted from a USA Today story by David Colton) Flying defiantly into a digital world, DC Comics launched a weekly series of superhero comic strips on July 8, 2009, printed on full-size newspaper pages like the old-fashioned Sunday funnies.
The 12-week return to newsprint, called Wednesday Comics, makes its debut at comic-book stores July 8 and will offer 15 different stories for $3.99 in a broadsheet format, 14 inches by 20 inches. (New comic books are released across the USA on Wednesdays.)
Creators include John Arcudi and Lee Bermejo on Superman, Brian Azzarello on Batman, Adam and Joe Kubert on Sgt. Rock, Paul Pope on Adam Strange, Dave Gibbons on Kamandi, Kyle Baker on Hawkman and a pairing of Neil Gaiman and Michael Allred on the obscure hero Metamorpho.
All 12 weeks of the Superman strip will appear in USA TODAY as well, beginning July 8 with a full-page installment in the newspaper. The remaining 11 Superman strips will be available each Wednesday at usatoday.com.
"There's a certain romance to the history of the big old Sunday funnies that I wanted to try to recapture in Wednesday Comics," says DC art director Mark Chiarello. "Why not dust off the format and have a little fun?"
An old friend, Chiarello joins Mr. Media to discuss Wednesday Comics and take your calls.
