Bleeding Cool reports that Charles Soule will write Swamp Thing after Scott Snyder leaves the book this coming April. Nice thing is that Soule is mostly a creator owned type of guy, big congrats to him. READ MORE
Say it ain’t so! The creative team of Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette, responsible for the New 52 recreation of Swamp Thing, are taking leave from the book as of issue #18. Following all the drama surrounding Gail Simone leaving “Batgirl”, due to creative differences with her editor, Snyder announced he would be resigning writing duties on “Swamp Thing”. However, unlike Simone’s situation, Snyder simply seems to have taken too much on his plate with his upcoming Superman book set to begin in the new year. Paquette has yet to announce his next project. READ MORE
DC Comic announced today that on Batman issue #18, readers will be treated to guest art from Andy Kubert and Sandra Hope, with Capullo returning as regular artist at issue #19. But, perhaps more interesting is the inclusion in the solicitation that long-time Marvel artist, Alex Maleev, will be drawing the backup story, as written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV. I was actually wondering what Maleev’s next interior work would be just the other day. This is Maleev’s first DC book in over a decade. Check out the “Batman” #18 solicitation below. READ MORE
The big Rotworld event continues today in the pages of Scott Snyder’s Swamp Thing issue #15. Rotworld comes to Gotham, and the demented inmates of Arkham Asylum are on the loose in the midst of this all out war. It will be interesting to see how Snyder places the criminally insane within the Green, the Red and the Rot. Check out the preview below. READ MORE
Rotworld is well underway, and it’s every bit as awesome as we hoped it would be. Snyder is building up the Swamp Thing mythology and taking it to new heights, just as he did with “Batman”. This looks like a crossover to go down in the horror/superhero history books, so don’t miss it!
Preview issue #14 below, which drops today, November 7th, 2012. READ MORE
Scott Snyder and Rafael Alburquerque will be taking a definite break from “American Vampire” after issue #34. They will be getting ahead of the series, which will time jump to the ’60s.
During the hiatus, Snyder will be working on The Wake with artist Sean Murphy. Snyder says, “A horror, sci-fi story with post-apocalyptic elemlents that begins with a terrifying discovery about human evolution, and it takes place at the bottotm the ocean. It explores sea myths, such as sirens and seas serpents, all the things we are in awe of and terrified of the ocean.” This maxi-sized 12 issue miniseres will be coming out next spring. More Vertigo news below, with a teaser for “The Wake”. READ MORE
Half way through the DC Comics New 52 Superman panel, Jim Lee and Scott Snyder were brought in to join the gang of Superman writers and artists on stage. This was quickly followed by the announcement of a new Superman title from Snyder and Lee, set for 2013, the 75th anniversary of the character.
This has been rumored for the past few weeks, but it is now official. Not many details were released about the project, but Snyder said he was really going to test the Man of Steel and explore how Clark Kent is affected by all the crazy stuff in his life. More on the panel after the break. READ MORE
We’ve pretty much been waiting for Rotworld since the New 52 began – part of me feels the #0 issue month was a way for DC to make sure the The Swamp Thing/Animal Man crossover landed during Halloween month. This is the first time Snyder and Lemire are partnering for a big event. It will be interesting to see what characters Snyder and Lemire choose to bring back from the “Swamp Thing” mythos, as the covers already show Deadman and Poison Ivy, which is reminiscent of Alan Moore’s famous Annual issues from back in the day. But I won’t waste your time any longer, just thought I’d leave you a reminder so as not to miss out on the event. It all starts tomorrow, October 3rd. READ MORE
Comic Book Resources got an exclusive look at the Die Cut Covers for the upcoming “Death of the Family” event that will be taking over the pages of all the currently running Bat-books. The Joker die cut is creepy as hell, but thinking about it, so are the others. Below you can check out the official cover, as well as two New York Comic Con exclusive die cut covers for “Batman” #13, including Joker wearing Bat Mask. READ MORE
Wonderfully entertaining and amazingly action-packed, American Vampire Vol. 4 is the same gripping roller-coaster ride we’ve all come to expect from Scott Snyder. “American Vampire” offers all the action, suspense, and thrills you could ever hope for in a vampire tale. Snyder forgoes all vampirism cliches, yet he manages to keep the story deeply rooted in American history and traditional vampire lore. With “American Vampire” Vol. 4, Snyder and Albuquerque continue to bring bad boy vampire, Skinner Sweet, through various time periods. Rockabilly era skinner is one of Snyder’s best renditions yet. READ MORE
Thank Bleeding Cool for this one. The site scanned a nice copy of the upcoming “Death of the Family” crossover from DC Comics, which ushers in the much anticipated return of Joker to the New 52. The crossover begins next week and you’ll likely see this checklist in every DC book released, but why not take a look.
Apparently Scott Snyder is henceforth to be referred to as “Scott Synder”. Check it after the jump. READ MORE
Scott Snyder has been working to revitalize the vampire genre for the past few years with American Vampire, and it’s amazing how he’s still able to come up with so many new ideas for the blood-suckers. The book began with Stephen King as a co-writer, and it’s grown into a beast under Snyder’s guidance. This week’s “American Vampire” #31 continues the Skinner and Pearl team-up mystery. READ MORE
One year ago today, DC Comics officially rebooted their entire Universe with the release of “Justice League” #1. The risky move split comic book readers right down the middle. Some fans celebrated the monumental move, while others cringed at the loss of continuity. All the old DC titles ended, in some way or another, and new books started to fill the shelves of local comic shops. Now that we’ve had a year to reflect on the reboot, let’s talk about the ups and downs, the successes and failures, and imagine what the future holds for the no-longer-New 52. READ MORE

Last summer Snyder launched the first mini-series spinoff of American Vampire with Survival of the Fittest, and now he’s at it again. Snyder is teaming up with Dustin Nguyen to return to Mid 20th century Europe where Felicia Book and the gang will face the most powerful blood sucker of all time. We’re feeling a Nosferatu vibe going on, and we couldn’t be more excited for Snyder to further develop his vamp mythology. So prepare yourself for the five-issue mini-series Lord of Nightmares, heading your way in June.Read on for the skinny…
Swamp Thing just keeps getting better month after month but this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise consider it’s written by Scott Snyder. Everything is slowly deteriorating for Alec Holland. The Parliament of Trees is pissed at him for not giving in to the Green and now they want to watch him suffer. As the Rot closes in on Alec, things look grimmer than ever, and it’s all leading up to the Animal Man crossover (How stoked are you?).

Don’t worry folks, Comics To Feast On won’t be switching over to video-article mode anytime soon! We still prefer our articles typed, plus I don’t think anyone wants to look at my face for more than two minutes at a time. BPRD: Hell On Earth: The Long Death kicks off Mignola’s epic Hell On Earth event this week along with Snyder’s killer Batman series, the all freakin’ new Army Of Darkness ongoing, and plenty more. Read on for the skinny…
Image’s seven-issue run on Severed is finally over, and I don’t think there was any doubt from the get-go that this series would be anything short of phenomenal. Snyder gets a lot, and I mean a lot, of praise for his work over at DC on Batman, and Swamp Thing, which is Cool and the Gang, but Severed is another beast entirely. Severed puts the fear back in horror comics. I don’t mean that it’s just creepy or gory; this is a downright terrifying book that fully immerses the reader into the pages and doesn’t let go, even after the final page. There are times throughout the series when you can’t help but hold your breath in anticipation. Every issue is tense as all hell, beautiful, entirely haunting, and the final issue is no exception.

What’s that you say, more Animal Man? You ask for it, you got it! DC announced, oh so sneakily, that a stand alone, oversized, A-Man Annual will be hitting shops (or Ipads) in May. The story will go even deeper into the forces of The Red, The Green and The Rot. Lemire details that this Annual issue is in many ways a prequel to the highly anticipated Swamp Thing with fellow scribe, Scott Snyder. Travel Foreman’s cover (below) is godlike. I think I just filled the cup
With all the focus on those Before Watchmen books, it’s kind of hard to think of anything else, regardless of how you feel about the prequels. But lets not forget we’ve got a few good months ahead of us before we need to even consider those titles. Let’s focus on what’s here right now: BUFFY continues one of her weirdest seasons yet, the third issue of Lapham’s del Toro adaptation THE STRAIN, Kirkman’s newest title THIEF OF THEIVES, and a bunch more.
