Damian behind bars? Red Robin surrounded? Batman facing off against two new foes? This batch of covers, featuring the artistic stylings of J.H. Williams III, Tony Daniel, Dustin Nguyen and Marcus To, is light on answers but big on questions. But isn't that what they're for? Take a few minutes from your day and peruse the January covers for BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM, DETECTIVE COMICS, BATMAN and RED ROBIN, won't you? [gallery link="file"]
On a mission in space, Superman and his fellow Kryptonians encounter the might of the Thanagarian Army. Can Superman keep things peaceful between the two races – or will The Man of Steel discover that Hawkman's legendary temper is shared by all his people? Written by James Robinson and Greg Rucka, with art by Pete Woods and Ron Randall, issue #8 hits stands on 10/7. [gallery]
STREETS OF GOTHAM artist Dustin Nguyen gets downright pastoral on the variant cover to SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #10, from writers James Robinson and Greg Rucka with artist Pete Woods. Nothing I write here can really do it much justice, beyond saying it’s a fine piece of work. So why not scroll down and see for yourself?
As promised, we've got a look at the Batwoman feature from DETECTIVE COMICS #857, as Batwoman faces off against Alice in an attempt to stop the villainess from unleashing a toxic death cloud over all of Gotham. But Alice has more up her sleeve than just poison, and Batwoman's life will never ever be the same again. What more do you need? Oh, right. Artwork. Well, here you go. From the team of Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III, DETECTIVE COMICS #857 hits 9/23. [gallery link="file"]
Have you checked out the great work writer Greg Rucka and artist Cully Hamner are doing monthly in the pages of the QUESTION co-feature in DETECTIVE COMICS? If not, you're missing out. But here at The Source, we're all about spotlighting all the fun stuff coming out of these offices, and THE QUESTION is no exception. In DETECTIVE COMICS #857, the Question's search for a missing girl leads Renee to a human trafficking ring, and the Question suddenly finds herself in way over her head.
Much of today has been devoted to wrapping up WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #8, which is a pretty crazy issue. James Robinson, Greg Rucka and Pete Woods are introducing the Thanagarians to the series, and where the Thanagarians go, can bloody skirmishes be far to follow? One thing that’s complicated matters on this issue is Pete’s shoulder injury (I know, I know, I’m not supposed to give the opposing team info on our players’ injuries!).
Jumping from the pages of ACTION COMICS #881, writers Sterling Gates and Greg Rucka continue "The Hunt for Reactron" in the pages of SUPERGIRL. Can Supergirl rely on her seemingly unhinged childhood buddy to help her track down her father's killer? Or will she get burned by the person she once trusted most? Who knows? But we can tease a few lovely Jamal Igle pages right here. And don't go anywhere, as later today we'll have some more Superman inside info, right from Superman Group Editor Matt Idelson's desk.
Happy Monday, Source gang. I'm back in the office, a little warmer and rested from a few days in sunny SoFla. Yes, that's how we refer to it. Moving on.
We wander the DCU editorial offices pretty regularly, just to get a sense of what's coming up in the book. More often than not, an editor will swing by with a great idea and the bulk of my job is to just nod and say "Sure! Send it over!" This was one such instance. So, without further ado, I present DETECTIVE COMICS editor Michael Siglain, who is fittingly talking about DETECTIVE COMICS. Take it away, Mike: Want a sneak peek at the latest unbelievably awesome issue of Detective Comics from writer Greg Rucka and artist JH Williams III? Well, check out these pages!
Well, glad you asked. It's a four-part crossover event involving both SUPERGIRL and ACTION COMIC, and, as you probably guessed from the title of the story, it also involves Reactron. But we've got more info for you, right from Superman Group Editor Matt Idelson, plus some snazzy pages. Take it away, Matt:
