It all starts here. Writer James Robinson pairs with superstar artist Mark Bagley to begin their run on JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA. You've heard rumblings and speculation, you've read the chatter around the interwebs. But now's your chance to get a first-look at the new creative team's take on the most storied team in the DCU. To sweeten the pot, we threw in a variant cover by Andy Kubert. Happy Thursday. Oh, and is that Despero? JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #38 hits 10/21. [gallery link="file" columns="4"]
It's not a stretch to say writer Gail Simone and artist Aaron Lopresti's "The Rise of the Olympian" arc changed Wonder Woman's life completely, and it's not over for our favorite Amazon. In this issue, Diana finds herself fighting for her life against the man chosen by the gods to replace her -- Achilles, the Warkiller. Doesn't sound like much fun. At least for her. We've got a few pages here, though, for those us standing on the sideline and looking to be entertained. WONDER WOMAN #36 hits 9/30. [gallery link="file"]
That headline kind of speaks for itself, huh? We'd elaborate more on Tony's first story arc, but why spoil the fun? Plus, you don't want to read my ramblings. You want to see some nice art. Tony Daniel. Writing and drawing Batman. Sneak peek. Now. BATMAN #692 hits in October.
Magog has a mommy? Who knew? Well, I'd imagine writer Keith Giffen and artist Howard Porter did. That's all the info we have for you, Source-ers, but we do have a lovely Porter design sketch for you to look at. We also managed to corner MAGOG editor Mike Carlin into giving us a tad more info on who this lady really is. Take it away, Mike: "We’ll meet Magog’s Mom, Alba in issue #4...When she calls Magog back home to Albion. Where the demigod’s roots are!" Fair enough. MAGOG #4 hits in January.
As promised, we've got a look at the Batwoman feature from DETECTIVE COMICS #857, as Batwoman faces off against Alice in an attempt to stop the villainess from unleashing a toxic death cloud over all of Gotham. But Alice has more up her sleeve than just poison, and Batwoman's life will never ever be the same again. What more do you need? Oh, right. Artwork. Well, here you go. From the team of Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III, DETECTIVE COMICS #857 hits 9/23. [gallery link="file"]
Have you checked out the great work writer Greg Rucka and artist Cully Hamner are doing monthly in the pages of the QUESTION co-feature in DETECTIVE COMICS? If not, you're missing out. But here at The Source, we're all about spotlighting all the fun stuff coming out of these offices, and THE QUESTION is no exception. In DETECTIVE COMICS #857, the Question's search for a missing girl leads Renee to a human trafficking ring, and the Question suddenly finds herself in way over her head.
What better way to lift your spirits on a Monday morning than by having some holiday cheer? What? It's September, you say? Well, yes, but it's never too early to roll out our holiday plans, no?
Much of today has been devoted to wrapping up WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #8, which is a pretty crazy issue. James Robinson, Greg Rucka and Pete Woods are introducing the Thanagarians to the series, and where the Thanagarians go, can bloody skirmishes be far to follow? One thing that’s complicated matters on this issue is Pete’s shoulder injury (I know, I know, I’m not supposed to give the opposing team info on our players’ injuries!).
Writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray and amazingly talented artist Amanda Conner continue to bring the fun with the second part of their "Space Girls Gone Wild!" arc, which finds the trio of sexy alien marauders continuing their rampage across Earth. Power Girl tries to figure out how to stop them, but with aliens this pretty, readers might not want them to leave. But don't take my word for it. Check out some pages below. POWER GIRL #5 hits 9/23.
