Yesterday, you got a breakdown of all the key members of the GREEN LANTERN CORPS. But as we head into BLACKEST NIGHT, from mega-stars Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis, how familiar are you with the rest of the colors of the emotional spectrum? Yeah, thought so. That really annoys me. Some might say, it makes me angry -- and we all know what happens when you get really angry? Rage. Yes. See what I'm trying to do here?
We've previewed the first two parts of the TITANS/VIGILANTE/TEEN TITANS crossover "Deathtrap," but why stop there? Kicking off right after the events of VIGILANTE #5, the issue finds our team getting roped into Jericho's insane plot to take out the other Titans team. But how do you defeat someone that can control your very actions?
Good afternoon, clock watchers. Monday is almost over and you're probably already wearing your coat and loading your bags. But there's one more thing we want to show off before you hop in your cars or respective modes of transport.
BLACKEST NIGHT #0, which hits on 5/2 (Free Comic Book Day, meaning it is, yes, free at participating comic shops) provides readers with the first concentrated glimpse at this summer's mega-event, from writer Geoff Johns and artist Ivan Reis. As we move closer to BLACKEST NIGHT #1, we thought it'd be helpful to give readers a quick course on the spectrum of colors populating the universe and wielding power rings of varying power levels and emotional focus.
Well, this is it.
In case you haven't heard, JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #26 is the final issue from writer Geoff Johns, who has spent the better part of a decade chronicling the adventures of the JSA. But not to worry, as some of you are already well aware of, Johns has a ton of stuff in the pipeline. Namely, FLASH: REBIRTH and BLACKEST NIGHT.
Ah, dawn in the city. I start going through emails. Renato Guedes has sent us pencils for pages 9-10 of SUPERMAN #688. Wow, these are gorgeous! Renato has been nice enough to draw this critical scene first, as we’ll be flashing back to it in SUPERMAN ANNUAL #14 a couple of months later. Some more gorgeous pencils are in from guest-penciller Fernando Dagnino for SUPERGIRL #41—man, he’s SO good. Looking at our schedule, however, I’m thinking it might be more logical to ask Fernando to draw the upcoming SUPERGIRL ANNUAL rather than ACTION #878-879.
It's Friday. You're probably thinking about the weekend and hopefully enjoying some nice weather (it's surprisingly nice here at 1700 Broadway in the NYC). We have more good news for you: A preview of THE LAST DAYS OF ANIMAL MAN #1, by writer Gerry Conway and artist Chris Batista, featuring an amazing cover by the legendary Brian Bolland. You may recall his work on ANIMAL MAN. If not, shame on you.
Of course not. You got a look at SUPERMAN and BATMAN yesterday, and today we unveil a look at Neil Gaiman and Mike Allred's METAMORPHO tale, plus a page from Dave Gibbons and Ryan Sook's lovely KAMANDI strip.
Part of the fun that comes with working on The Source is the chance to see cool art pop into my inbox from the hardworking DCU editors. As I was wandering around the sixth floor earlier this week, R.E.B.E.L.S editor Brian Cunningham let me know that artist Claude St. Aubin will be stepping in for regular artist Andy Clarke on R.E.B.E.L.S, with writer Tony Bedard. Instead of just rephrasing what Brian told me, I've decided to quote him directly. It's like live-blogging, except not at all:
You just saw the first four pages from DETECTIVE COMICS #853 over at IGN, but why stop there? It's Neil Gaiman, New York Times bestselling novelist, winner of more awards than we can list and one of the true trailblazing creators in the industry. Artist extraordinaire Andy Kubert. Batman. Here, for your continued reading pleasure, are two more pages from the issue -- which concludes the two-part "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" story -- picking up where IGN left off.
