And some news! As we announced not long ago, writer Jeff Lemire and artist Mahmud Asrar are teaming up to present BRIGHTEST DAY: THE ATOM SPECIAL, a one-shot focusing on the past and preent of Ray Palmer, the Atom. What we haven’t done is show some pages – which you can click below to view. And they’re a beauty. We’re also very proud to announce that Jeff Lemire has signed an exclusive contract with DC Comics, meaning only good things for fans of his mind-bending work on Vertigo’s SWEET TOOTH and his upcoming work on the ATOM co-feature in ADVENTURE COMICS and the ongoing SUPERBOY series. We got a minute of Jeff’s time to get his thoughts on his new exclusive and DC work, so take it away, Jeff: "As a life long DC Comics fan, I am incredibly excited to be a part of both the DCU and of Vertigo moving forward. Sweet Tooth has been a labor of love for me and I couldn't have done it without the amazing support of Karen Berger and everyone at Vertigo. So, the opportunity to not only continue Gus and Jepperd's saga, but also take on the new Superboy monthly and the adventures of Ray Palmer, The Atom is a dream come true for me! Both the DC and Vertigo line ups at the moment are full of amazing creators and amazing characters and I'm thrilled to have the chance to be a part of that in the years to come!" So, good news all around. Oh, and those pages… [gallery link="file"]
