Not long ago, we announced that legendary Batman artist Neal Adams would be returning to the streets of Gotham with BATMAN: ODYSSEY, a twelve-part mini-series with a page of teaser art.
It’s been a fun week here at The Source, what with all the WEDNESDAY COMICS extras we’ve been rolling out. And today’s doubly important, as you can actually step into your local shop and pick up a copy of the WEDNESDAY COMICS HC.
Far from it, gang. As you saw last week, we unveiled a handful of beautiful variant covers by some of the biggest artists in the industry, all to commemorate DC’s 75th anniversary.

This Wednesday, fans will find an innovative, historic and just plain fun collection waiting for them when they step into their comic shops.

And maybe the bizarre SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL RETURNS in the style of Frank Miller’s BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS.
