CBR TV @ CCI: Bob Harras & Eddie Berganza Pitch DC Comics’ New 52

Executive Editor of DC Comics Eddie Berganza and Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras joined CBR TV during Comic-Con International to discuss the publisher’s fast-approaching September relaunch, getting their sales pitches on the five most anticipated books according to CBR’s initial poll (“Justice League”, “Green Lantern,” “Batman,” “Action Comics” and “Aquaman”) as well as the five least anticipated (“I, Vampire,” “O.M.A.C.,” “Voodoo,” “Hawk and Dove” and “Men of War”).

Harras and Berganza go into detail on what readers should expect from Greg Capullo on “Batman,” Grant Morrison’s “Action” and Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis’ “Aquaman.” They also explain why readers should be more excited about Josh Fialkov’s take on the DC Universe vampire lore, Dan DiDio and Keith Giffen’s journey into the Fourth World, why Rob Liefeld should never be underestimated, the allure of Ron Marz’s Voodoo and the importance of expanding DC’s Universe with “Men of War.”

    Rob liefeld should not be underestimated? Really? I’ve not even listened to why this should be the case but I think underestimating him might actually be the kindest thing you can do, that way if he delivers artwork that’su00a0appallingu00a0you’ll beu00a0pleasantlyu00a0amazed he didn’t deliver his ownu00a0faecesu00a0wrapped in paper towel.u00a0nnHave you seen Theu00a0Infinite? He’s tracing the same face with occasionally different mouths, you can tell because the right eye isu00a0skewu00a0wiff on every panel, the same exact way each time.When will these companies learn?

      I love guys like you who comment on the Internet (not really).u00a0 You comment without even having listened to the interview, so tell us why your comment matters?u00a0 Please, why should we care?u00a0 Why did you even post it?nnPut aside your personal differences and tastest for a second and look at it from a business stand point, which is what they discuss in the interview.u00a0 Liefeld sells books, period.u00a0 He has his fans and they gobble up his work.u00a0 Clearly you’re not one of them, so why do you care?

      • Lead_sharp

        Because I love comics and Rob Liefeld is damaging the medium.nnI don’t need to listen to it, I have NOW but I didn’t need to. They defend Rob Liefeld who’s art isu00a0indefensible andu00a0objectivelyu00a0awful and who’s only still around BECAUSE he sells books to people frankly stupid enough to buy them.u00a0nnIt’s got nothing to do with personal taste, this isn’t Coke Vs Pepsi it’s got everything to do with DC wanting to be takenu00a0seriouslyu00a0as a comics publisher and then employing this pair of clown shoes because ‘he sells books’. Do you know who he sells them to? Comic readers and comic readers alone because no one outside fandom would tolerate or even knows about his crap.u00a0nn’Because he sells’ isn’t a good enough reason to employ him, the book would sell better if they got any number of quality artists to u00a0draw it the only reason it’s Liefeld is because he had a hand in HnKs creation.u00a0nnIf you areu00a0reallyu00a0suggesting that Rob Liefeld can be takenu00a0seriously as an artist then please I implore you stop reading comics.u00a0n

        Because he’s right… I’ve read that first issue of Infinity & he’s spot on.

    I haven’t been reading comics long enough to know why so many fans hate Rob Liefield’s artwork. u00a0All I’ll say is I’m excited about Hawk and Dove; the preview artwork looks pretty good to me, so I don’t get what all the fuss is about. u00a0Sterling Gates is one of my favorite writers, so I know the story is going to be solid as well. u00a0I’m excited about this and many other titles in the Young Justice line, and can’t wait for September to roll out these titles.

      See the cover of Hawk and Dove, now then, try and achieve the same pose with your arms as Hawk does with his. Now get a friend to phone an ambulance because you just rotated your arms out of your sockets. Oh and here’s a link…nnhttp://www.progressiveboink.com/archive/robliefeld.html

    I really hope that next James Robinson title is a Marvel Family book. u00a0Hell, I could even get into the Marvel Family from Flashpoint. u00a0Just bring me the lightning!

    Men of War, I, Vampire, Voodoo (plus Blackhawks) are my pull list from this (stupid) re-whateveryouarecallingitDC. Not getting any hero-book.u00a0

    It’s refreshing to see some genuinely nice top execs speak, when Jonas shuts up. u00a0Yes they don’t have much to say, and the praise for the artwork is unanimously revolutionary from what has been u00a0leaked, esp Animal Man, I Vampire, and today the new logos are out. u00a0 Artistically, DC is living up to the challenge of what they are wanting to do. u00a0The question really is can they out write their competition. u00a0Their rosters are LOADED. u00a0 Brian Azzarello is writing WONDER WOMAN. u00a0Why has no one really talked about THAT. u00a0DC is causing such a high level of excitement that they know they have to come through. u00a0These are big players who not only can get the job done but know the stakes. u00a0These are scary times, this is what we WANT! u00a0Exciting times! u00a07 days away. u00a0Midnight Madness at Role of the Die.

    Fuck that. I see Rob Liefeld’s name on any book, I’m turned off and hope that the book fails. I find it interesting now that MEN OF WAR, HAWK AND DOVE, BLACKHAWKS, O.M.A.C, MR. TERRIFIC, and STATIC SHOCK are axed. Oh, love the part when Harris stated that Rob is going to connect readers. More like disconnect. u00a0u00a0nnAnd VOODOO, that didn’t last long when Marz only lasted four issues do editorial clusterfuck. u00a0
