If you've been reading BLACKEST NIGHT: TITANS (and there's no reason to miss it, I say), then you know the once dearly-departed Terra plays a big role. So, it makes perfect sense to bring aboard writer/artist George Pérez to put pencil to paper for the cover to the mini's final issue. Doubly cool? The artistic master plays homage to his own work, namely, the cover to NEW TEEN TITANS #30. But enough bluster. We caught up with BLACKEST NIGHT: TITANS editor Brian Cunningham to get more details on the cover, plus the cover itself (and its inspiration) below. Take it away, Brian:
He thought he was alone, but Red Tornado's on track to meet the family he never knew he had! And in issue #2 of the 6-issue miniseries, Red Tornado discovers the next member: Red Torpedo! Hold on to your hats as this exciting new series from writer Kevin VanHook and artist Jose Luisí whips up a zephyr of excitement!
The issue features a cover by Ed and Mariah Benes. Check it out on October 7th.
J.T. Krul and artist Ed Benes continue to turn up the BLACKEST NIGHT volume on the TITANS, and we've got a few pages for you to look over. We'll have a more formal (i.e. lettered and colored!) preview, but why make you wait until then? Especially when we have some pretty intense Titan-on-Titan violence? Black Lantern Hawk! Red Star! Pantha! Wildabeest! Plus, a very creepy family reunion. OK, I'll clam up. Check out the pages below for yourself.
BLACKEST NIGHT: TITANS #2 hits 9/30.
The BLACKEST NIGHT is upon us, and the dead are rising across the DCU. No one is unaffected, and some teams -- like the TITANS -- have seen more than their share of fatalities over the years. Later this month, writer J.T. Krul and artist Ed Benes will bring you the first issue of BLACKEST NIGHT: TITANS, which spotlights how the heroes deal with the sudden return of some of their most tragic members. But, to tide you over until then, we've got a look at some interiors from Benes.
Being such faithful Source readers, I have no doubt you all saw our initial Red Tornado news. But to keep you all up-to-date on that front, we snagged some of cover artist Ed Benes' pencils for the second issue of the mini-series from writer Kevin VanHook and artist Jose Luis, showing off the character known as Red Torpedo.
RED TORNADO #1 hits 9/1.

Ed Benes is handling art duties on BATMAN #687. You've seen some of the stuff coming after, specifically, Mark Bagley's upcoming work, but why not take a gander at some of Benes' linework? It will not disappoint.Ed steps in for a one-issue spotlight, pairing him with writer Judd Winick to set the stage for the post-BATTLE FOR THE COWL world, leading into Winick and Bagley’s first arc on the book.
In a few short days, the final chapter of BATTLE FOR THE COWL hits the stands and the entire world will learn the identity of the new Batman. It’s a journey long in the making and it’s hard to believe all the hard work from all of our creators is finally paying off on the printed page.
But we’re not wasting any time resting on our butts. Nope, we’re diving straight into the next exciting phase of the Dark Knight’s life, an era which reflects the new world order for Gotham City and its favorite protector--BATMAN REBORN.
