O.M.A.C. #2 Solicitation Graces The Internets

Brother Eye gives Kevin Kho the ground rules to their new “arrangement.” New players are introduced to the game as Sarge Steel and Checkmate begin their hunt for the One Machine Army Corp, but O.M.A.C.’s appearance may be short-lived when he faces the incredible threat of Rocker Bonn, the Amazing Man!

Guys, seriously… what could be better?

I like you as more than a friend, Dan.

Criminal Acts: The Harvey Awards

Obviously, The Harvey Awards have thrown away any shred of credibility that they would ever hope to have. Just take a look at these nominations for best writer:

BEST WRITER

____ Cullen Bunn, SIXTH GUN, Oni Press
____ Joshua Hale Fialkov, ECHOES, Top Cow
____ Roger Langridge, THOR: THE MIGHTY AVENGER, Marvel Comics
____ Ryan Sohmer,  GUTTERS, http://www.the-gutters.com
____ Mark Waid, IRREDEEMABLE, BOOM! Studios

I mean, I might be high, but I don’t see Outsiders by “THE DAN" anywhere on that list. And if it’s not on that list, these "award" nominations for "best" writer are clearly flawed, and should not be taken seriously.

Thank you, and good day.

Our Hero teams up with his buddies to tell those of us that aren’t aware of what’s coming in September about the DC Relaunch.

That’s right, Mr. Didio is headlining the video, you should be jealous.

In a recent “interview" with The Source, Dan The Man mentioned some of the characters that he will be using in the upcoming OMAC series:

There are a lot of familiar concepts being introduced like Cadmus and Checkmate. Some not so familiar, like Amazing Man and Dr, Skuba, and some things new like the Bio-gators.

So, I want to show you guys some of those characters. And the photo above is Dr. Skuba, and one of the reasons I chose to showcase Dr. Skuba is simply due to DC’s typo of “Dr, Skuba”. But anyway, here’s the description of the character from the DC Wikia Page:

In the Pre-Crisis parallel world known as Earth-AD, Doctor Skuba was a criminal scientific mastermind that operated during the early 21st century. Tucked away in his mountain lair in theIndian Ocean, Skuba committed his scientific knowledge towards overthrowing the Global Peace Agency. Assisting him in this endeavor was his daughter Seaweed and her husband Apollo. Amongst Doctor Skuba’s many elaborate experiments, was his field work in genetic mutation. He selected human subjects (universally against their will) and mutated them into horrific monstrosities. One day, Skuba succeeded in capturing GPA agent Buddy Blank, more widely known as OMAC the One-Man Army Corps. He also used his inventions to disable Buddy’s artificial intelligence, the satellite known as Brother Eye.

Mr. Didio, you’ve got me excited.
