As you may or may not have heard, DC Comics recently made the bold decision to relaunch their comic book universe. Dubbed “The New 52”, the rebooted universe is an effort by the comic publisher to make their superheroes and stories more “modern and accessible”. The controversial relaunch will offer a fresh start for iconic superheroes and lesser known characters alike with all 52 titles being renumbered to #1.
Actor/comedian Nug Nahrgang and writer/director Andrew Cymek (Dark Rising) will be hitting The Silver Snail in Toronto every week to review “The New 52”. The pair plans to review EVERY single issue of “The New 52” through their first story arcs. Some would call this madness. We, however, call this awesome. This gargantuan undertaking could very well kill them… especially when they get around to I…Vampire.
