Yesterday, we kicked off the week with a double-dose of sketches from artists Eduardo Risso and Lee Bermejo, spotlighting the BATMAN and SUPERMAN WEDNESDAY COMICS strips, respectively. But why stop there? Today, we’ve got design sketches from the über-talented Ryan Sook, who – along with writer Dave Gibbons – handled the KAMANDI strip from WEDNESDAY COMICS, which hits tomorrow. Do you need any more incentive to pick one up? I’d hope not.
This Wednesday, fans will find an innovative, historic and just plain fun collection waiting for them when they step into their comic shops.
Well, we can’t. But we can give you an equally-amazing image to kick off your day.
Most fans, young and old, are familiar with comic book legend Neal Adams’ iconic SUPERMAN #233 image – “KRYPTONITE NEVERMORE!” It’s one of those things that is part of the comic book lexicon, and it’s symbolic of the Man of Steel and everything he stands for. Here it is:
Tomorrow marks the launch of WEDNESDAY COMICS, one of the most-anticipated projects to come out of the DCU in quite some time. Featuring an all-star cast of creators gathered by DC Art Direct Mark Chiarello, the project is an impressive collection of work from the best and brightest the industry has to offer, featuring some of your favorite characters. Whether it's the pulpy, street-level drama of Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso's BATMAN or the left-of-center space caper of Paul Pope's MYSTERY IN SPACE, I'm not kidding when I say WEDNESDAY COMICS has something for everyone. And more.
