BATMAN CONFIDENTIAL #38 hits 12/2.
As promised, following co-writer Justin Gray's comments from yesterday, we bring you Jimmy Palmiotti's thoughts on the series hitting #50, plus a few lovely preview pages. Take it away, Jimmy:
In the 70’s, John Albano and Tony DeZuniga knocked it out of the park. Simple as that.
New Krypton is a planet so fresh, it's experiencing countless things for the first time. Its first spring. Its first blooms. Its first birth of a child. And now its first homicide. When an important figure in Kandor is murdered, the suspect seems obvious to everyone but Superman. But can he make Zod or the Council believe this is more than an open-and-shut case?
Do you have any idea what it’s like attempting to distinguish a new costumed hero comic in a field overrun with costumed hero comics?
It keeps putting me in the mind of those painful auditions they used to hold in the pages of “Legion of Super Heroes.” Remember?
“Sorry, making plants grow incredibly fast really isn’t much of a useful super power.”
I hate to sound like too much of a broken record, but one of the perks of wandering around the DCU editorial floor is you get to slyly scan over all the cool art and sketches the editors have on their desks and in their offices. It's always a treat to see what stuff is coming in from our various and hugely talented creators.
Welcome back to the working week, Source readers. Hopefully, you're still feasting on Thanksgiving leftovers and well-rested from a few days of fun, family, food and football. Not in that order.
We realize you're probably scrambling to get everything done in time to jet out of work early and get on with your Thanksgiving, but why not take a moment to look at some lovely BLACKEST NIGHT: WONDER WOMAN #1 artwork from Nicola Scott, who's pairing with writer Greg Rucka on the three-issue mini-series. See? We knew you'd come around.
