'This ain't your grandfather's Doc Savage... or your father's Batman.'

We decided Brian Azzarello put it best, so why try and spruce things up with a cheeky headline?
Yesterday, we caught a look at J.G. Jones' amazing cover to the BATMAN/DOC SAVAGE SPECIAL, which kicks off a new era for the Doc, and and provides the springboard for more stories focusing on characters like The Blackhawks, Rima and more. Oh, and Batman.
And, as we promised yesterday, we've got comments from Azzarello, who's masterminding the whole shebang. Take it away, Brian:
"Cities are urban jungles-- and there's also unchartered mysterious countries with their own jungles as well. It’s world where you’re guilty before being proven innocent-- something that rarely happens. Little people make big mistakes and suffer the consequences. Life is cheap, and everyone has their price. Where part of the thrill of being rich, is watching the poor suffer. Y'know, my kind of place."
But that's not all. Both Azzarello and cover artist J.G. Jones will be at the Chicaco Comic-Con this weekend, talking up the special with Senior Story Editor Ian Sattler. If you're in the area, be sure to swing by and say hello.
And, because it's Friday and we want to send you off with a smile on your respective faces, here's artist Rags Morales' variant cover for the BATMAN/DOC SAVAGE SPECIAL, which hits in November.
