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?
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.
Writer Judd Winick and artist Mark Bagley kick off part three of their four-part BATMAN story with a bang, as Penguin ups the ante in his bid to become the top crook in Gotham and enlists a few of Arkham's finest to keep the Dark Knight occupied. Meanwhile, a new player enters the scene to help the Penguin -- or does he have more devious goals?
Well, glad you asked. It's a four-part crossover event involving both SUPERGIRL and ACTION COMIC, and, as you probably guessed from the title of the story, it also involves Reactron. But we've got more info for you, right from Superman Group Editor Matt Idelson, plus some snazzy pages. Take it away, Matt:
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.
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?
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.
Spinning out directly from last month's "Red Circle" event from superstar writer J. Michael Straczynski, we've got a first look at THE SHIELD #1, the debut issue of the new ongoing series chronicling the patriotic hero's exploits. Along for the ride is an INFERNO co-feature. The main story, written by Eric Trautmann with art by Marco Rudy takes Lt. Joe Higgins -- a.k.a.
We unveiled a short preview of the first issue of MAGOG, from writer Keith Giffen and artist Howard Porter a while back, but it never hurts to gently remind you that it's in stores this week. We also thought it'd be nice to throw in a few extra pages, for good measure.
