It's quite rare in this day and age for me to get excited about the artwork in a particular comic book story.

Hey Source readers. As most of you know, today is Memorial Day, a time to think back on those brave men and women who gave their lives serving in our armed forces. While we won’t have any new posts today, we ask that you take a moment to reflect on the many heroic individuals who bravely fought for the nation.
We’ve got a simple good news/bad news situation for you all this morning.
Bad news: Artist Cameron Stewart won’t be handling the art chores on the fourth issue of BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE. We’ll have more Cameron news, however, in the coming months, so — as usual — keep it locked here at The Source. So, wait. That’s not bad news at all.

Not long ago, we unveiled artist John Cassaday’s lovely reinterpretation of SUPERMAN #1, as part of our DC 75th anniversary celebration. Earlier still, we confirmed that John was going to be the regular cover artist on SUPERMAN, accompanying the work of writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Eddy Barrows.
So, that implies we’ll have more SUPERMAN Cassaday artwork, right? Correct.
The DC offices are closed today, so posting will be light. And, I should be well on my ways to a few days of rest in the Florida Keys as you read this. But we do have one cool bit of news for you to carry you through this Memorial Day weekend.
