A few links of note for Thursday

SM_EARTHONE_CASEFNL.indd The long weekend is almost upon us, and minds tend to wander this close to the end of the work day. So, how about I provide you with a handful of links to click through and get through the day a bit faster?

A first look at Patrick Gleason’s BATMAN AND ROBIN

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. And now, to end a short week with some cool news, we present you with Gleason’s first cover, for November’s BATMAN AND ROBIN #17.

Get a first look at KNIGHT AND SQUIRE #1

Gotham’s got the Dynamic Duo – but that’s not the only powerful pair of vigilantes protecting a major metropolis. London has Knight and Squire, the British heroes and frequent allies of Batman and Robin. And in a secret pub within the city where peace is kept magically, heroes and villains alike gather over a pint and talk about their day. But magic, as we all know, is a fickle thing – so what happens when the barriers are dropped and a building packed with heroes and villains confront each other at the same time?

‘Batman and Robin Must Die!’ continues -- an early look

Grant Morrison and artist Frazer Irving continue their epic BATMAN AND ROBIN tale, as one of our heroes lies near death. Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne enter the ultimate, blood-soaked battle against two foes who almost destroyed the original Batman. But are they up for the challenge? And if they can’t make it as a team, have they sealed their fates? BATMAN AND ROBIN #14 hits 8/25. [gallery link="file"]

BATMAN AND ROBIN, meet Peter and Patrick

When we announced there’d be a new creative team on GREEN LANTERN CORPS, one of the first questions people asked was “Where’s Pat Gleason going?” Well, we have an answer for you. Just be patient. Oh, right. You have been patient. Well, then we’re happy to announce that the famed GREEN LANTERN CORPS team of writer Peter Tomasi and artist Patrick Gleason will be reuniting as the regular team for BATMAN AND ROBIN, starting in November. What do these guys have in store for the dynamic duo? Peter?
