THE MOVENT and GREEN TEAM – DC Comics taping into current economical events


so Gail Simone and Freeddie Williams II are doing THE MOVEMENT, a superhero book for DC apparently inspired by the Anonymous hacker group and the Occupy movement [or not]. first issue came out on May 1st and I’m curious to read it – reviews are already comparing it to V FOR VENDETTA and the like.

on May the 22th THE GREEN TEAM is debuting, based on a curious concept that appeared in the 70s. I haven’t seen the cover for this one, and mean no disrespect to cover artists Amanda Conner and Cliff Chiang, but I wish for both titles a more poster-oriented style had been chosen – sort of what David Aja is doing for HAWKEYE. anyway, I’ll be picking up these DC books to see what they are about; it’s always nice to see more or less current news being reinterpreted and mythologized as 4 color visual narratives.

solicitation text:

We are faceless. We are limitless. We see all. And we do not forgive.

Who defends the powerless against the GREEDY and the CORRUPT? Who protects the homeless and poverty-stricken from those who would PREY upon them in the DARK OF NIGHT?

When those who are sworn to protect us abuse their power, when toxic government calls down super-human lackeys to force order upon the populace…finally, there is a force, a citizen’s army, to push order BACK.

Let those who abuse the system know this as well: We have our OWN super humans now. They are not afraid of your badges or Leagues. And they will not be SILENCED.

We are your neighbors. We are your co-workers. And we are your children.
