    Default Geoff's New Kill Zone Imprint

    First, this is probably a stupid question, but what is a pop-up imprint?

    Supposedly, he's going to write some lesser known DC characters. Which ones would you use or want to see being used in this imprint?

    Do you think Geoff is going to hire other writers to write other titles?

    Have you ever heard of a pop-up restaurant or a pop-up store, they're usually a temporary thing (like a day or 2) to advertise an upcoming restaurant or a clothing line, or they're created to raise money for charity.

    Basically a pop-up is a temporary thing, I guess in terms of comics and Geoff Johns imprint, he might oversee a set number of minis about obscure characters and once those books are over the imprint is done.
    My priority is black female characters; everything else is secondary.

    ~~

    Marvel: Miles Morales, Riri Williams, Ororo Munroe, Thor, Quentin Quire.
    DC Comics: Vixen, Batman, Bat Family, John Stewart, Roy Harper, Tempest, Poison Ivy, Raven.
    Comics: Y: The Last Man, Justice League America (2009), Ultimate Comics: All New Spider-Man (2011)
    Ships: Thororo/ThunderStorm, Vixen/hasn't been created, Jason Todd/Kathy Duquesne.

    Considering the complaints that the other imprints seem to prioritize the Trinity or the "A-List" characters, I think it's a positive that this will deliberately focus on DC's smaller or more obscure characters.

    But I hope "Kill Zone" is just an ironic moniker .

    Stargirl is probably a good bet since she’s a character really close to Geoff’s heart.
    Good Marvel characters- Bring Them Back!!!

    Not at all. Unless you think you’ve invented minis. Or am I missing something.

    I would say everyone aside from the Big Seven of the Justice League, which may also include any character who has a mini or ongoing already going on (like, say, Hawkman or Plastic Man).

    My idea was for a label of recurring minis for lower-tier characters, which is something I've never seen done. Maybe you have.

    Is Geoff doing something different from that? Besides apparently publishing fewer of them than I had proposed, and a different publishing sked?

    The difference I can see is that I called it DC Specials and he calls it The Kill Zone. I think my name is better.

    It's not enough if that is the only place you see them.

    Because there is no assurance that the book will be in a comic book store or book store.

    And then you have the echo chamber who will have no trouble adding that line to "these books are killing comic book stores and we need to act a FOOL about it."

    I would be more open if it was more than just HIM writing the books.

    LOL the first thing I imagined is this is where the more obscure DC characters will go have their brains blown out!

    I love the idea of giving more page time to characters that don’t get as much attention as they may deserve.

    Good call. Stargirl will most likely be one of the heroes he uses.

    I appreciate that Geoff has been an advocate of the Doom Patrol over the years. There’s an example of lesser known characters that he’s realized could be more marketable. Leading to the Doom Patrol getting their own tv show.

    Some other characters I would love to see used:

    The Creeper: he’s a mix of The Joker and Spider-Man and was created by Steve Ditko. I’ve always felt that there was so much potential with this character.

    The Question: we’ve heard that Bendis is going to use him in his Superman run, so maybe that will increase his profile a bit.

    The Guardian, Steel, Commander Steel, Amazing Man, Gangbuster, Ambush Bug

    There’s too many to list.
