For most, Labor Day is the last exit sign before crossing the border into fall, which means it’s our last chance to have a Friday off under the auspices of “Summer Fridays.” So, in more concrete terms – the DC offices are closed today and Monday, which means there’ll be no new posts until Tuesday. But come back then for a first look at BATMAN #703.
Have a great holiday weekend, all!
This October, writer J. Michael Straczynski (Superman, Wonder Woman, Babylon 5, “Changeling”) and artist Shane Davis (Green Lantern, Superman/Batman) will take readers on a journey both familiar and new – a story of a last son looking for meaning amidst the skyscrapers and teeming crowds of a great metropolis.
This is a Superman for the 21st century.
Everybody here at the DC offices is getting ready to clear out for a long weekend and the official end of the summer. Considering how much fun we had these past few months on the DC Nation tour, you’d think we’d be sad to say goodbye to the season. But knowing what I know about how we plan on closing out the year...well let’s just say there is a TON to be excited about.
We’ve got another batch of eye candy for you this afternoon, with a look at Ale Garza’s cover to THE FLASH #6, Cliff Chiang and Kevin Maguire’s covers to JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #10 and Frazer Irving’s creepy BATMAN AND ROBIN #15 look into the Joker’s innermost thoughts. Enjoy.
We’ve had a lot of Batman news of late, but one thing we haven’t shared is what the new creative team on BATMAN AND ROBIN will be doing visually. As we unveiled not long ago, Peter Tomasi will be taking over as writer with his former GREEN LANTERN CORPS collaborator Patrick Gleason stepping in as artist.
The third chapter of legendary Batman writer/artist Neal Adams’ epic adventure continues, as Bruce Wayne and Alfred strategize the next steps in the Dark Knight’s odyssey – which may lead him straight to the Riddler and Talia.
BATMAN: ODYSSEY #3 hits 9/9.
When Supergirl decides to get away from it all and visit Stephanie Brown on the campus of Gotham City University, a quiet, relaxing weekend turns into a monster movie mash-up. After a science experiment goes horribly wrong, 24 black-and-white Draculas are brought to life, and Batgirl and Supergirl are forced to become vampire hunters in order to stop an army of the celluloid undead.
This is the showdown you've been waiting for, as two Secret Six teams head for a nasty collision, courtesy of writer Gail Simone and artist J. Calafiore. Who is left standing, and will there even be a Secret Six when the dust settles? Bad guy guests galore in this turning point issue.
SECRET SIX #25 hits today.
