Got another reason for you to head to the comic shop today, folks – WONDER WOMAN #602, the latest chapter in writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Don Kramer’s epic take on the Amazon Princess. In this issue, Diana takes the battle for her heritage to the enemy and discovers that the war may be over before it’s even started. Oh, and she’s not on the winning side.
We’ve got a nice dose of eye candy for you today, folks, with covers to BRIGHTEST DAY #9 by David Finch and #10 by superstar Ivan Reis, DCU: LEGACIES #5 by the legendary Walt Simonson, GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD WARRIORS #2 by newcomer Felipe Massafera, another wonderful Brian Bolland ZATANNA cover (for #5, natch) and an energetic Lee Bermejo SUPERMAN #703 piece.
Consider this an engraved invitation to a spectacular anniversary celebration, as writer Paul Levitz brings the World’s Finest face-to-face with the Legion of Super-Heroes. Lex Luthor has unleashed a threat so powerful it’s garnered the Legion’s attention in the distant future. But they can’t take him down without a trip to the past to recruit Batman and Superboy.
By now, you’ve seen a few of these lovely White Lantern covers, featuring Aquaman, Firestorm and more — but did you know that together, the covers form a massive, amazing piece of art that shows many of BRIGHTEST DAY’s key players while also teasing at what may be to come?

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the fans we’ve met recently. You guys have been incredibly supportive and cool at the shows and I think a big part of that is the excitement we all feel about the DCU right now.
Before we dive into the week (or, at least, I do), we wanted to steer your attention to a notable bit of press – namely, IGN’s feature on the “best of” the DC Universe.
With the team split in two and wanted for acts of war, The Outsiders find themselves fighting with one another in order to survive. While Geo-Force, Katana and the Eradicator build a new team in Markovia, Black Lightning, Owlman and Metamorpho find themselves at the home of an old friend who just happens to want Metamorpho dead. Plus, who’s the Creeper facing off against?
Marc Guggenheim isn’t the only big name signing up for the Justice Society. Come October, artist Scott Kolins will be stepping aboard the series for a spell, and, well, that begs for a peek at some art, no?
Before we show off the goods, we checked in with JSA editor Mike Carlin for a little background on what makes Kolins such a great fit for the Justice Society:
I’m on vacation, but still – what better way to head into the weekend than by posting some nice images to click through?
