Tempest returns. What more do you need to know?

My magic blogging eight-ball just said “Blogging Will Be Light,” so I’m going with that. Oh, and it’s a holiday weekend. So, yes. This’ll be it for today. But, we bring you some more fun news from the DCU editorial gang. Specifically, TITANS editor Brian Cunningham. What say you, BC?:

“When is Tempest coming back?”

More often than not, that’s been the question fans have asked since TITANS launched last year. A fair query, since Tempest has been AWOL from the DC Universe for seemingly longer than the Jonas Brothers have been alive.

A day in the life of SUPERMAN Group Editor Matt Idelson

Ooh, look! Sun! I’d forgotten what that looks like. Neat. Today is a bit of a mad scramble (what else is new?). We’re wrapping up the lettering on ACTION COMICS #879, which means a lot of emailing back and forth with letterer Rob Leigh. He’s come up with what I think will be a stronger method for the English subtitles to all the crazy Kryptonian speak going on in the book. And if this doesn’t work, we’ll just start throwing sound chips in the book!

Can't wait for BLACKEST NIGHT?

Neither can we. But what to do before the first issue hits? Well, did you know that GREEN LANTERN #43 is a prologue to BLACKEST NIGHT? No? That's a shame. Well, this issue, featuring story by some guy named Geoff Johns and the new regular GREEN LANTERN art team of Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy not only gets the ball rolling toward the big summer event, but it also features the birth of the first Black Lantern. Discover who he is and just what his connection to death -- and in turn, the Black Lantern Corps -- really is. Wait, words aren't enough? Fine. Here are two pages from the issue.

Just another day for the SUPERMAN Group Editor

Hey folks! As usual, we have our regular “From the Editors” post  coming your way. Being the diligent worker we all know and love, Matt Idelson  managed to give us his entry early, as he made his escape to the distant land  of Barcelona. Enjoy...

A few links of note for Wednesday

This gloomy weather has us here at The Source feeling a tad under the weather, so apologies for using the "blogging will be light" cliché today. But, we do have a slew of places for you to visit as you wait for a full recovery.
