The brainchild of DC Comics Art Director Mark Chiarello, WEDNESDAY COMICS is a unique and groundbreaking storytelling method -- 16 pages, printed on broadsheet-size newsprint, featuring weekly stories by the best and brightest creators out there. It's gotta look great, right? We have your first peek at a page from writer John Arcudi and artist Lee Bermejo's SUPERMAN strip, along with a page from the 100 BULLETS team of Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso, re-teaming on the Dark Knight for the first time since their acclaimed "Broken City' arc.

As Wednesday comes to a close, it's a good time to pop in and see what's happening on the Superman side of the DCU, specifically, SUPERGIRL, where the creative team of writer Sterling Gates and artist Jamal Igle continue to redefine the Maid of Might. Easy for me to say, sure, but the cover to July's #43 and a few pencils from #41 should help convince any doubters as well. The pencils, by guest artist Fernando Dagnino, are pretty snazzy, to say the least. [gallery link="file"]
IGN already gave us a look at the inked version, but here at The Source, we're all about sharing. So, on that note, here's the color version of the cover, by Mr. Frank Quitely and Alex Sinclair. BATMAN AND ROBIN #2 hits in July.
Not only is Jim Starlin a writer who knows his way around a universes-spanning space epic, but he's drawn his fair share over the years. He gets the chance to do it one more time starting with STRANGE ADVENTURES #5, as the writer/artist takes on both roles. Check out some pencils from July's STRANGE ADVENTURES #5 to see a bit of what's in store for the rest of the epic mini-series. [gallery link="file"]
Peter Tomasi and artist Lee Garbett turn the heat up on the newly-formed Outsiders team in this issue, the third part of "The Deep." Can the team properly hold off the Thrashers with the Creeper on the verge of a nervous breakdown? Also, who are The Insiders and why are they talking to a certain Slade Wilson? For some answers, click below. THE OUTSIDERS #17 goes on sale 4/22. [gallery]
With Geoff Johns moving on from his long tenure as writer of JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA with the 26th issue of the current series, I'm sure many of you are wondering just what is in store for the world's first super-team. Well, for starters, we have writer/artist Jerry Ordway stepping in for a stint, to be followed by the new regular creative team of writers Bill Willingham and Matt Sturges and artist Jesus Merino.
Who is Red Robin, exactly? We're not going to just up and spoil that here, gentle reader. But we will show you some Ramon Bachs interiors from the first issue of the new ongoing series, launching in June, written by Chris Yost. Plus a nift Francis Manapul cover. All you need to know -- for now -- is that this Red Robin knows a thing or two about taking the fight to the streets. Don't take my word for it, though. RED ROBIN #1 hits 6/10. [gallery link="file"]
Last week, we showed off some interiors from the first issue of BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM. That went over well, so why not pull back the curtain a bit and let you take a look at artist Dustin Nguyen's creative process? Here's the cover to BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM #2, plus some prelim sketches for said cover.
Here at The Source, we like to keep our promises. And, as some of you might recall, we mentioned inked pages from POWER GIRL #1 on Friday. For whatever reason, the blogging gods were not on our side that day, so you only got to see the cover to POWER GIRL #3 and the sketch cover to #1. Now, that's plenty, but we'd feel almost malicious if we didn't eventually share with you those promised inked pages.
Mr. Jerkface himself, Vril Dox, continues his recruiting drive to rebuild L.E.G.I.O.N. But who swiped it in the first place? Writer Tony Bedard and artist Andy Clarke bring in the surprises with this issue, also guest-starring the Omega Men. Don't believe me? Fine. Just look at the art then. R.E.B.E.L.S #3 hits on 4/15.
