Some things you probably know: The Spirit returns in a new ongoing series next month from writer Mark Schultz and artist Moritat. We showed off a page of the first SPIRIT: BLACK AND WHITE co-feature by Dennis O’Neil and Bill Sienkiewicz just last week. Did you also know that Mark Schultz is not only writing the issue, but also contributing a variant cover? It’s possible. But I know it hasn’t been seen yet, so here it is:
Starting with the first issue of the new SPIRIT ongoing series, each issue will feature a SPIRIT: BLACK AND WHITE co-feature from the top talents around the industry. And what better way to kick things off than by having living legend Dennis O’Neil pair with artist Bill Sienkiewicz for a tale of Will Eisner’s creation? We were psyched when this piece of artwork found its way into our inbox, as we’ll sure you’ll be when you click on it. THE SPIRIT #1 hits in April.
Last week, you got a first look at Rags Morales' interpretation of "The Bat-Man" in the pages of FIRST WAVE. Today, we've got a first look at superstar artist John Cassaday's cover to DOC SAVAGE #1, written by Paul Malmont with interiors by Howard Porter, hitting 4/14.
It's been a Batman kind-of-day, and will continue to be, as we've got a major art debut later today. But let's not get ahead of ourselves, shall well? We've got a major art debut to show right now.
Hopefully all the Friday FIRST WAVE goodness got you excited for the debut issue of the mini-series from writer Brian Azzarello and artist Rags Morales, which is packed with neo-noir action and deftly reimagined icons, including the Bat-Man, Doc Savage and the Spirit.
If that lengthy preview this morning wasn't enough for you, then we have another piece of lovely art to make Friday all the more fun. Courtesy of cover artist extraordinaire J.G. Jones, here's a peek at The Bat-Man, from the cover to FIRST WAVE #3. And for those of you that missed it the first time, we've included Lee Bermejo's lovely FIRST WAVE #3 variant.
In a world without super powers, there are still those men and women who merit the name "hero." In the long shadow of The War and amidst the rubble of a shattered world, humanity's last hope may be a handful of masked vigilantes with only their fists and wits at their disposal against a shadowy cabal known only as The Golden Tree. Enter Doc Savage, a veritable super man plagued by the loss of his father and a nagging suspicion that something evil lurks around the corner.
