What's the best way to get over having to come back to work after a long weekend? Well, how about some cool news? I can't really complain, as I'm sending this while heading south to the Florida Keys. But this news is big enough to interrupt my vacation -- and it really should be shared now.
Ready for another dose of Keith Giffen and Matthew Clark's DOOM PATROL? Are you sure?
It's a black hole, but it's not a black hole. If you're a Doom Patrol fan, that made perfect sense. And even if not, then you're in for one hell of a ride as the Doom Patrol face off against the most annoying alien this side of G'nort. Who's G'nort? Do we have to spell it out for you? Oh, and the Metal Men in space.
Not satisfied? Check out a few pages below to get an idea. DOOM PATROL #2 hits 9/9.
Well, you will, dear Source readers. All in due time. But first, a few things:
Because of the holiday, "blogging will be light" today. Meaning, this is basically it. Also, I'm on vacation. Heck, I might be on the beach as you read this. But fear not -- thanks to great advances in blogging technology, it'll be like I never left. You'll get your regular dose of Source goodness at the usual times. But please, try to miss me.
Oh, right. I promised the cover to ADVENTURE COMICS #5. Well, here it is. See you in a week.
Hiya, folks! As the TITANS editor, I wanted to do something a little different to hype issue #17, in comic stores September 9. My first call for ideas was the issue’s writer.
“My first plot had me making out with Starfire for 22 pages,” he said. “But that got shot down for whatever reason.”
The guest writer? Pat McCallum, fresh off his stint of stalking DC editors looking for work.
War is declared on the new Devil's Island, and the Secret Six are facing off against themselves. On opposite sides and ready to die -- or kill! -- for their causes, the Six are in a tight spot. But what are they fighting over that's strong -- and brutal -- enough to take down Wonder Woman herself? Only Gail Simone and artist Nicola Scott know. But the preview pages below will give you a hint.
SECRET SIX #13 hits 9/9.
Happy Friday, Source crew. Are these Frazer Irving covers cool or what? Well, there are two more to show, and we've got one right here. Enjoy the cover to December's ARKHAM REBORN #3, from writer David Hine, artist Jeremy Haun and the aforementioned Irving, as they team up to tell the tale of Jeremiah Arkham's mad quest to rebuild the asylum that bears his name.
Writer Christopher Yost and artist Ramon Bachs conclude the first RED ROBIN arc with a bang, as Red Robin's search leads him to the deserts of the Middle East with the League of Assassins by his side. How many lines will Tim Drake cross to prove that Bruce Wayne lives? And as one journey ends, a deadlier one begins as Red Robin learns the truth -- but will he survive long enough to tell anyone about it?
RED ROBIN #4 hits on 9/9.
Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason pull out all the stops for GREEN LANTERN CORPS #40, as BLACKEST NIGHT continues and the battle on Oa rages on. The honored, fallen Corps members and the recently deceased Sciencell convicts are now bloodthirsty Black Lanterns -- and they won't rest until the bloody hearts and minds of the GLs are literally in their hands. Can John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner stop the Blackest Night from engulfing Sector Zero? We're not sure, honestly. But these three pages should get you stoked.
Geoff Johns and superstar artist Francis Manapul continue to tell the tale of the revived Conner Kent, as Superboy settles back into life in Smallville. But all is not well in Superman's hometown. And while Conner reunites with Wonder Girl to discuss their future, Lex Luthor and Brainiac form a partnership that will put the entire DCU at risk.
Not too long ago, we announced that Marcus To would be taking over the duties as the regular artist on RED ROBIN, pairing him with writer Chris Yost to tell the ongoing adventures of Tim Drake. But that can't be enough, can it? So, to help you get that much closer to Friday, here's a look at the cover to RED ROBIN #7, from To.
We've got a ton of exciting BRAVE AND THE BOLD stuff rolling your way right here in the next week or so, but it never hurts to throw out a good teaser image to get people keyed up. And here, we have artist Jesus Saiz's lovely cover to BRAVE AND THE BOLD #30, written by J. Michael Straczynski with interiors by Saiz. I just read the first issue myself and was even more excited for what's to come than when I first heard the news. JMS and Saiz are really teaming up to tell some modern classics, and we're just a few days from the launch. Until then, enjoy some Green Lantern and Dr.
