Jumping from the pages of ACTION COMICS #881, writers Sterling Gates and Greg Rucka continue "The Hunt for Reactron" in the pages of SUPERGIRL. Can Supergirl rely on her seemingly unhinged childhood buddy to help her track down her father's killer? Or will she get burned by the person she once trusted most? Who knows? But we can tease a few lovely Jamal Igle pages right here. And don't go anywhere, as later today we'll have some more Superman inside info, right from Superman Group Editor Matt Idelson's desk.
Last week, we showed off some of the pages from the first issue of THE SHIELD, and now we have a look at THE WEB #1, featuring the main WEB feature, written by Angela Robinson with art by Roger Robinson and Hilary Barta. The issue also has a HANGMAN co-feature, from writer John Rozum and the REIGN IN HELL art team of Tom Derenick and Bill Sienkiewicz.
It's almost Friday. Half the week is over. But we've still got two more days before the weekend is upon us. And we've got a few heavy hitters. Specifically, BATMAN #694 from writer/artist Tony Daniel, a lovely J.H. Williams DETECTIVE COMICS #860 cover and last, but certainly not least, Andy Kubert's magnificent cover to the minty-fresh BATMAN 80-PAGE GIANT. Feast your eyes, folks. All three hit in December.
Huh? What's the Weekly Wonder Woman Tally, you say? Well, glad you asked.
Not long ago, Dan DiDio mentioned the fan debate regarding Wonder Woman's upcoming "600th" issue. Lots of people have asked Dan to revert the book to it's original numbering to commemorate the event. Far from being a pushover, Dan said that if fan response -- in the form of postcards -- was strong enough, he'd consider it. And by strong, we mean "600 postcards" strong. Get it?
Writer Tony Bedard and artist Andy Clarke continue on their R.E.B.E.L.S. hot streak, as word of Starro's invading horde and Vril Dox's rebellion reaches the masses, and sides are drawn. Plus, the mighty Khund fleet enters the battle against Starro. Too bad for them. Plus: The all-new, all-dangerous Omega Men. Need more? Well how about a few pages to get your legs a-walkin' to your local comic shop?
R.E.B.E.L.S. #8 hits today.
Ever wonder what a down-and-out street thug would do with super powers?
Or what J. Michael Straczynski would do at DC Comics?
DC’s longtime superhero mash-up series THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD welcomes a new pairing of heroic proportions. J. Michael Straczynski, writer and creator of the sci-fi hit, Babylon 5 and BAFTA-award nominated screenwriter of Changeling, joins forces with rising star illustrator Jesus Saiz (OMAC PROJECT, CHECKMATE) as the series’ dynamic new writer-artist team starting with issue #27, on sale September 16.
As the new Batgirl continues her nightly mission, the mystery of her secret identity intensifies. Now she has become the target of both Gotham City's heroes (can you say "Oracle"?) and its villains. Now that you know who the new Batgirl is and you've seen her new costume, all the more reason to head down to your shop and follow Stephanie Brown's ongoing adventures, no?
BATGIRL #2, from the team of writer Bryan Q. Miller and artist Lee Garbett, hits tomorrow.
Yesterday we showed off some pages from tomorrow's issue of BATMAN STREETS OF GOTHAM. But why stop there? We've got a double dose of Dini-penned Bat-books for you today, including the cover to GOTHAM CITY SIRENS #8 by Guillem March and BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM #7, featuring artist Dustin Nguyen's take on Manhunter.
Writer Paul Dini and artist Dustin Nguyen continue to tell tales stories from Batman's city in the latest issue of BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM. And with Batman's recent "Bruce Wayne" issues somewhat contained, Gotham's new Dark Knight must now deal with someone far more frightening -- the frightening psycopath Victor Zsasz.
Happy Monday, Source gang. I'm back in the office, a little warmer and rested from a few days in sunny SoFla. Yes, that's how we refer to it. Moving on.
