My Trip to the DC Universe

Posted on by

I’m going on a trip to visit some of my favorite people, and you can follow along on my adventure. It’s not a comic convention, but you can hear all about it at one!

My trip to the DC Universe starts on October 16th. You can get a preview by reading this interview with me and DC Comics co-publisher and Svengoolie superfan Dan DiDio.

Find out more and read the full interview here.

Absolutely wonderful! (marking calendar for Oct 16...)

And on the subject of Sven in print...check out the current issue of "Scary Monsters Magazine", which has a fine article about Sven and his 40th anniversary, as well as putting him on the wrap around cover. Very nice! The rest of the magazine is also of interest to classic horror fans, of course. Got mine at Barnes & Noble.

Sven is ALWAYS a superhero to me and he doesn’t need super powers!

So our Sven is now an inter-dimensional traveler. Cool!

People (other than Sven) on that cover in decreasing order of fun-to-hang-out-with-ness:

Plastic Man
The Flash
Black Canary
Green Lantern
Wonder Woman
Green Arrow

Those last two are pretty much neck and neck.

1. Wonder Woman. Because hubba hubba.
2. Batman. Because he was my coolest best friend when I saw him on TV when I was 5.
3. Supes. Because he's freaking Superman. Plus x-ray vision for #1. 😛

Thank you, I couldn't figure out who those two guys in the back were.

I'm old enough to remember when Hawkman and Hawkgirl, The Atom, and (so help me) Snapper Carr were JLA members. And Elongated Man, before they decided it was okay to let in a former crook like Plastic Man.
Tygercat daDoctah 8 months ago
Actually, I'm probably "old enough" to know about those guys, except we didn't have many of these types of comics around the house. I know about Archie and company, and the Harvey books, but we weren't allowed many DC or Marvel books. A few snuck in, so I know about Hawkman and Hawkgirl, who I always liked- hey, they were a married couple who worked in a museum and fought crime together, what's not to like? Parents didn't loosen up until the Batman TV show came out, and by then of course I was "too old" for such things. Ha.

Anyone who has his own TV show that bucks the system of boring follow-the-leader formats, and gets me to watch and laugh at his show every Saturday, is a Super Hero in my book!

Well said.

My girl showed me some pages posted to Facebook. I was miffed, but I noted the cover said promotional only. Will we be able to purchase this? One hint, I noted giant chickens. Anyhow it's great to see Sven in the DCU.

If I understood it correctly, you have to buy a regular comic and it comes along with the regular book.
Jack Geo 8 months ago
Like Lucy said, the Sven content will be part of the regularly scheduled comic book, sort of like "Fat Freddy's Cat” in _the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers_, but instead of a topper strip at the bottom of a page, the Sven content will get two full pages, prob'ly at the back of the book.

My guess the “Not for Sale•For Promotional Use Only” tag refers to the mock-up cover, which will be used to promote the crossover event and not actually appear on a comic in the sales rack. It may appear as a promotional poster at your local brick-and-mortar comics store, but it’s not intended for resale.

Also note that Black Canary is in the group, so we get to see someone in fishnets. Sven, don’t feel insulted, but I’d rather see B.C. in fishnets instead of you.
Jack TheKodakKid 8 months ago
Altho’ not pictured in the mock-up cover, Justice League member, Zatanna, regularly dons fishnets (and a top hat).

Plastic Man and a rubber chicken on the same cover—this must be a first!
TheKodakKid Jack 8 months ago
So, are they related? I mean the rubber chicken and Plastic Man, not Sven and, er, either of the other two.

Great cover art!! (But hard to read the graphic artist's name for proper credit.)

Ummmm... still hard to read here. But in the interview it's stated that's he's Christopher Jones. Check it out.
Jack PatS 8 months ago
I think we’ve already met Christopher Jones on the Big Broadcast.
