DETECTIVE COMICS #854 sells out, and we have a snazzy new cover to show

Seems like people like Gotham's newest citizen, huh? DETECTIVE COMICS #854, by writer Greg Rucka and artist J.H. Williams III, has sold and is going back to press for a new, second printing. As most of you know, DETECTIVE COMICS also features a snazzy co-feature by Rucka, with art by Cully Hamner. And though you probably don't need any added incentive to check out the book, we've still got the mind-blowing new printing cover by Mr. Williams and Dave Stewart right here. Enjoy.

TUESDAY TUNE-UP: WEDNESDAY COMICS WEEK 1

Tomorrow marks the launch of WEDNESDAY COMICS, one of the most-anticipated projects to come out of the DCU in quite some time. Featuring an all-star cast of creators gathered by DC Art Direct Mark Chiarello, the project is an impressive collection of work from the best and brightest the industry has to offer, featuring some of your favorite characters. Whether it's the pulpy, street-level drama of Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso's BATMAN or the left-of-center space caper of Paul Pope's MYSTERY IN SPACE, I'm not kidding when I say WEDNESDAY COMICS has something for everyone. And more.

Tempest returns. What more do you need to know?

My magic blogging eight-ball just said “Blogging Will Be Light,” so I’m going with that. Oh, and it’s a holiday weekend. So, yes. This’ll be it for today. But, we bring you some more fun news from the DCU editorial gang. Specifically, TITANS editor Brian Cunningham. What say you, BC?: “When is Tempest coming back?” More often than not, that’s been the question fans have asked since TITANS launched last year. A fair query, since Tempest has been AWOL from the DC Universe for seemingly longer than the Jonas Brothers have been alive.
