A day in the life of SUPERMAN Group Editor Matt Idelson

Ooh, look! Sun! I’d forgotten what that looks like. Neat. Today is a bit of a mad scramble (what else is new?). We’re wrapping up the lettering on ACTION COMICS #879, which means a lot of emailing back and forth with letterer Rob Leigh. He’s come up with what I think will be a stronger method for the English subtitles to all the crazy Kryptonian speak going on in the book. And if this doesn’t work, we’ll just start throwing sound chips in the book!

Happy Friday. Enjoy some RUN! #3 pages

Happy Friday, Source readers. It's been a busy week here at DCU headquarters, as usual. So why not head into the weekend with some cool pages? Fair enough. FINAL CRISIS AFTERMATH: RUN! #3 shows off everything you've come to love from the series: beatings, fire, explosions, guns, mean-spirited humor, stupid costumes and even stupider people. All this plus the Human Flame gets a new lady. And it's all downhill after that...

FINAL CRISIS AFTERMATH: RUN! #3 hits 7/1.

Before JUSTICE LEAGUE, there's Bagley on BATMAN

Heard the big news from last week? Well, we announced the new creative team for JUSTICE LEAGUE. Specifically, writer James Robinson and artist Mark Bagley. But before Bagley -- who just wrapped up a historic run on the weekly TRINITY series -- steps aboard JUSTICE LEAGUE, he's got a three-issue arc on BATMAN, pairing him with writer Judd Winick. We teased a page before, but we've got three more that you may want to check out.

BATMAN #688 hits 7/8.

Get a first look at DOOM PATROL #1

Let's cut to the chase: We've got an early look at the first issue of DOOM PATROL #1, right here. Written by Keith Giffen with amazing art from Matthew Clark and featuring a METAL MAN co-feature by Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and artist Kevin Maguire, it's hard to think of why anyone would pass the issue up, no? But we refuse to miss a chance to show some of these great-looking pages. The world's strangest Super-Heroes are back, and whether you think you know them or not, Giffen and Clark are pouring themselves into this new series, which -- as they've both stated -- is a dream come true.

Are you ready for JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE #1?

The Justice League has always been about loyalty, friendship and teamwork. But it's also about Justice. When Green Lantern challenges his teammates to focus on that aspect of the name in the wake of the death of Martian Manhunter and Batman's disappearance, he finds himself on the ground floor of a new team's formation. GL, Green Arrow, Supergirl, Atom, Shazam, Congorilla and Starman unite to take the fight to the villains in the first part of a seven-part mini-series from writer James Robinson and artist Mauro Cascioli. Do you really need more convincing? Probably not.
