DCU IN 2010: Special edition of DC NATION


Hey, Dan DiDio here with special edition Digital DC Nation. And if you’ve been following The Source all this week you’ve gotten your first glimpses of the post Blackest Night DC Universe and a sneak peek as some the amazing stories and books we have planned for the 2010.


If you’re a regular Source reader, you know that while we love talking the talk, we know when to step back and let a piece of art speak for itself. This is one of those instances.

Not too long ago, we announced that Geoff Johns and artist Francis Manapul were taking the reins of the new FLASH ongoing series next year. We also showed a few in-progress pieces of the character, too. But we haven’t shown any final, colored, 100-percent Barry Allen Flash images. Until now, that is.

It all comes to a head in FLASH: REBIRTH #5

A few things about this issue: Readers will meet the greatest threat to face the Flash family in decades. A new hero will step into an old speedster's boots. Barry Allen makes the ultimate sacrifice. Yep. You read that correctly. Courtesy of superstar writer Geoff Johns and artist Ethan Van Sciver. You've heard it said before, but this issue doesn't dance around it -- nothing will be the same.

FLASH: REBIRTH #5 hits 11/18.

Step into J. Michael Straczynski's BRAVE AND THE BOLD

Ever wonder what a down-and-out street thug would do with super powers?

Or what J. Michael Straczynski would do at DC Comics?

DC’s longtime superhero mash-up series THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD welcomes a new pairing of heroic proportions. J. Michael Straczynski, writer and creator of the sci-fi hit, Babylon 5 and BAFTA-award nominated screenwriter of Changeling, joins forces with rising star illustrator Jesus Saiz (OMAC PROJECT, CHECKMATE) as the series’ dynamic new writer-artist team starting with issue #27, on sale September 16.
