I eagerly anticipate the next issues of Green Lantern, Action, Detective and Brightest Day each month as much as the next guy, but I'll take a few paragraphs here to talk about a book that's quietly snuck its way to the top of my read pile each week it's been released.
This January, fans will get a Batman tale like no other, by two of the most masterful creators to ever take on the Dark Knight.
They say you you can't go back, the past is the past. It isn't always true. When Azzarello and I found out we had the opportunity to add some additional material to our Lex Luthor story, it was like someone gave us the keys to the DeLorean. Although I think we can both look back at Luthor with some pride, there's also a bit of unfinished business there. That is, until now.
Writer Brian Azzarello and artist Rags Morales present the next chapter in the FIRST WAVE saga, as Doc Savage and The Spirit have followed the Blackhawks to Hidalgo. But the Red Hand stands between them and the murderous Anton Colossi – who's busy breaking bread with his dear friend Bruce Wayne, i.e. The Batman. And when Doc's newfound fortune is stolen as quickly as it was discovered, it'll take another uneasy truce between The Avenger and Doc's crew of compatriots to track it down.
FIRST WAVE #4 hits 9/29.
