We’ve got another batch of nice variant cover art to unveil, including Lee Garbett’s gritty BATMAN: RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #6 cover, Gary Frank’s masterful take on GREEN ARROW #5, another lovely Cliff Chiang JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST cover, Gene Ha’s take on SUPERMAN #704 and the latest from regular WONDER WOMAN and ZATANNA variant cover artists Alex Garner and Brian Bolland, respectively.
The reimagining of Superman's early days concludes as he faces his toughest foe yet – his childhood friend Lex Luthor. The victor will be Metropolis's hero. If you think you know how this plays out, then you underestimate how much Luthor wants that title…
SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN #6 hits 8/25.
We can never get too much great art, and more specifically, we can never get too much Gary Frank art. His run on SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN has been, well, superb. His knack for detail and widescreen storytelling has brought a new level of modernity to the tale of the boy from Krypton, while not sacrificing an inch of the story’s legacy.
We’ll have a more formal preview of the final issue of SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN tomorrow, but here’s a look at some of Frank’s initial Metallo designs plus a three-page sequence from the series, featuring pencils-to-inks-to-colors. Enjoy!
It seems like just yesterday that I was flying back from San Diego Comic-Con and now here we are and it’s time for the next stop on the 2010 DC Nation tour – Fan Expo Canada at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Canada from August 27-29. Actually it was just yesterday that I flew back from San Diego, but thanks to the magic of comics you’re reading this weeks from when I write it. I’m jealous because when you read this it’s almost football season and you’ve seen a certain action movie that hasn’t come out yet as I’m writing this.
Want to see Ivan Reis draw a Superman/Flash race? Mike Allred take on the Teen Titans? Two Wonder Woman covers? Well, you’re in luck, as we have all that and more. Specifically, we’ve got a first look at Ivan Reis’ amazing ACTION COMICS #892 DC 75th variant, Mike Allred’s TEEN TITANS #86, Gary Frank on SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN #6, Frazer Irving’s BATMAN AND ROBIN #14 variant and Don Kramer and Alex Garner’s cover and variant to WONDER WOMAN #602. Enjoy!
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.
Writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank put Superman against Metallo – for the first time! Witness the origin of one of Superman's most-feared foes, as an attack by Lex Luthor goes awry and gives birth to the evil of Metallo. Can an inexperienced Man of Steel handle a foe with a heart of Kryptonite? Meanwhile, Lois Lane and Perry White are close to revealing Luthor as the monster that he is – but are they willing to pay for that truth with their lives? Questions are answered, new ones are raised and the modern re-telling of Superman’s origin continues to rumble to its epic conclusion.
One of my very earliest memories as a child is of watching one of the Superman cartoons created by Max Fleischer. In particular, a scene where Superman puts his cape around Lois Lane to protect her from an incoming tide of molten metal.
