It's the first issue of the new story arc leading to #100, which is a huge milestone for what is technically an indie comic book. Only two other Image comics have reached triple digits since the company's founding, Savage Dragon and Spawn. It really puts into perspective the body of work that Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn have built over the past 8-9 years.

IT'S A BOLD NEW DIRECTION!
IT ALL STARTS HERE!
THE ALL NEW, ALL DIFFERENT COMIC BOOK PITT!
Okay, well maybe we're exaggerating a little with those cliched comic book sayings. It's still Dan and the Duke, but it's a brand new year and we have a lot to talk about. We've been gone for three weeks, but the comic book industry stops for no one. We talk about the recent New 52 cancellations/replacements, Rob "I Have More Lives Than a Cat" Liefeld's New 52 assignments, Walt Simonson on Avengers, Gene Ha on Justice League, DC Comics' new logo and, of course, we manage to squeeze in a few reviews.
We've also issued one challenge to ourselves: to interview Rob Liefeld. Love him or hate him, Rob is one of the most well known personalities in comics and has had an incredible (and some might say, infamous) career.
Come join CBP's first Twitter chat, the Comic Book Cocktail Hour, on Sunday January 22nd at 10:00pm. There's no specific topic or agenda for this first chat, just an opportunity for fans, readers, and/or creators to gather and talk shop.
Comic Book Pitt theme music is by Nik Furious. You can find more of Nik's music at NikFurious.com.
