Hello, DC Nation! Wil Moss here, associate editor on the SUPERMAN line of books. How’ve you been? Have you lost weight? Well, you look great.
So before you head to the comic store this week, I want to draw your attention to two fine offerings from the Man of Steel’s corner of the DCU that hit the shelves Wednesday!
FLASH issue nine, on sale next Wednesday, kicks off the much anticipated Prelude to FLASHPOINT storyline. Writer Geoff Johns and artist Francis Manapul are crafting a murder mystery with a heck of a twist. Who dies? We won't say here (yet), but we'll let this question linger: "You recognize the costume?"
FLASHPOINT spans the DC Universe from the dark streets of Gotham to the ruins of Big Ben. It’s an international tale of action and intrigue that impacts an entire universe.
It's not easy being Batman. Between the opera galas to be attended, the business matters of Wayne Enterprises and all of the supervillains needing to be stopped, Dick Grayson and Damian have their hands full in Gotham while Bruce Wayne is traveling the world recruiting members for his new network of Batmans.
Talia al Ghul's treachery has Zatanna backed into a corner -- and a pair of missiles she launches to blow up a captive Selina Kyle may just be too much for the Sirens to stop. Check out the first five exciting pages of the next issue below!
Peter Calloway & Andres Guinaldo's GOTHAM CITY SIRENS #19 is on sale Wednesday.
Psionic Lad visits Superboy from the Smallville of 2216 - a Smallville that's been turned into a "towering, festering acropolis; a rogue, immoral city-state" that's at war with the rest of the world. This future is the fault of a tyrant known as the Prime-Hunter, and Psionic Lad needs Superboy's help to find a way of fighting back.
Aquaman's second chance at life hasn't quite worked out the way he expected. His wife has betrayed him, and his powers don't work like they should. Now, in BRIGHTEST DAY #19, writers Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi and artists Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Oclair Albert and Rob Hunter bring us the Aquawar.
