Not reading SECRET SIX? Shame on you. Not only did AIN'T IT COOL NEWS just give the latest issue a sterling review, but writer Gail Simone and artist Nicola Scott are really pulling out all the stops on the series.
Well, it's not actually Wednesday, but that's never stopped us from posting cool images from WEDNESDAY COMICS, has it? The new weekly series, slated to launch in July, is the brainchild of DC Art Director Mark Chiarello, who has collected an impressive array of creators for the book.
We'll be closing up shop a little early this afternoon. Every now and again we get this thing called a "Summer Friday." Just means we can jet a bit early and enjoy the weekend. I'm all for it.

Mon-El's role as Superman's stand-in for Metropolis is threatened by a sudden and mysterious power loss. How can he be the hero he needs to be without any special abilities? James Robinson and Renato Guedes answer the question, with a dash of the Guardian thrown in for good measure. Can you guess who the spy within the Science Police is? Probably not, but guess anyway.
Well, surprise news. There's one co-feature we haven't shown pages from, and that's BLUE BEETLE, which will be setting up shop with BOOSTER GOLD starting with #21 of that series, from writer Matt Sturges and artist Mike Norton. In the first installment, Jaime Reyes has a friendly lunch interrupted by a marauding 50-foot robot. Sound like a fun break? Didn't think so.
Writer/artist Jerry Ordway steps in for a few issues before the new regular team of Bill Willingham, Matt Sturges and artist Jesus Merino take over, and he's got some fun stuff in store. The younger members of the JSA find their headquarters in lockdown mode -- with Flash, Green Lantern and Wildcat stuck inside. Can the junior team break into their own base?
