We promised big news. It doesn’t get much bigger than this. When we announced superstar artist David Finch was going to be joining the ranks of the DC NATION, it was with the news that he’d be handling the covers on BRIGHTEST DAY and ACTION COMICS. But not only is Finch a all-star caliber cover artist, he’s a master storyteller. Fans got a taste of the compelling narrative Finch can create visually with the pages he did in BATMAN #700, paired with writer Grant Morrison. But we can now add another credit to Finch’s vast resume: writer/artist. Of an ongoing Batman series.
And some news! As we announced not long ago, writer Jeff Lemire and artist Mahmud Asrar are teaming up to present BRIGHTEST DAY: THE ATOM SPECIAL, a one-shot focusing on the past and preent of Ray Palmer, the Atom. What we haven’t done is show some pages – which you can click below to view. And they’re a beauty.
The headline says it all, folks. We’ve got a first look at covers for BATMAN: RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #4 by Cameron Stewart, TIME MASTERS: VANISHING POINT #1 by Chris Sprouse, BRIGHTEST DAY #6 by David Finch and ZATANNA #3 by Brian Bolland. What better way to close out Tuesday than by clicking on some lovely cover art? See you tomorrow. [gallery link="file"]
Geoff Johns and artist Doug Mahnke roll out the red carpet for the Main Man himself, Lobo, as the Last Czarnian crosses paths with Hal Jordan. Oh, and expect a few surprises, too. GREEN LANTERN #55 hits tomorrow. [gallery link="file"]
I get it. It’s the middle of the week. Your brain is fried. You don’t want a long post explaining anything complicated. How about some nice art to click on and get you through your last hours at work? Especially when it’s stuff like BRIGHTEST DAY #5 – one by Ivan Reis and another by David Finch, FIRST WAVE #3 by Lee Bermejo, JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #5 by Tony Harris and SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN #6 by Gary Frank.

On the cover to BRIGHTEST DAY #4? Yup. How is that possible, you ask? What’s going on with the Hawks? You’ll get a few ideas from the pages below, but you’ll have to wait until BRIGHTEST DAY #4 hits tomorrow for the full scoop, courtesy of Mr. Johns, Tomasi, Reis, Finch, Gleason, Clark and Syaf. BRIGHTEST DAY #4 hits Wednesday. [gallery link="file"]
Later this year, the TITANS ongoing series returns, courtesy of writer Eric Wallace and artist Fabrizio Fiorentino, with a new direction. Fans got a sense of how ruthless Deathstroke's team of mercenaries could be in the pages of the TITANS: VILLAINS FOR HIRE SPECIAL #1, but who else is on their radar? We caught up with Mr. Wallace for some info on what's coming up in TITANS #24 and beyond. Take it away, Eric.
