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.
Just got off the phone with Brian. He’s gotta make a few simple adjustments on the next FIRST WAVE script. • Gotta call Rags Morales. Let him know everybody in the office is slapping me on the back for the looks of the first issue, as if I drew it. Might as well ring him up and share the, er, credit. • Gotta call Nei Ruffino, same reason. • Pardon my sharing my “to-do” list like this, but it’s the only way I can remember it all. • Gotta call Howard Porter, make sure we’re getting more DOC SAVAGE pages like the one here.
Did you think we’d run out of news after two weeks of DCU in 2010? No such luck, Source crew. In fact, we’ve got two new ongoing books to unveil, both hitting in April. You’re all familiar with FIRST WAVE, right? The pulp-y, neo-noir epic from writer Brian Azzarello and artist Rags Morales hits in March and brings readers into a world where the Batman, Doc Savage, the Spirit and many more hard-boiled heroes stand side by side.
Well, we gave you a little tease last week -- with some help from Matthew Sturges --about JSA ALL STARS #4 (which we've kindly included below), but what of the other titles tied to the team? I'm staying tight-lipped, but these cover images should help give you an idea to what's coming up. [gallery link="file"]
February's still a ways away, dear readers, but we figured it'd be a good time to give you an inside look at the covers of some of the JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA family of titles hitting that month -- and there's a ton of hitting happening in these pages. Check out the covers for the February issues of MAGOG, POWER GIRL, JSA ALL STARS and the JSA ANNUAL below. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
It's day of threes here at The Source. To close things out, we have the third issue of MAGOG, which shows us that sometimes powers are as much a curse as they are a blessing. Magog learns that lesson firsthand when the minions of Miasma assault his enhanced senses. On top of that, he's found himself "rescued" by hi-tech-clad members of the mysterious Flashpoint. But is that a positive, or has our hero hurtled into a more dangerous situation? Find out by picking up the third issue of the new series, from writer Keith Giffen and artist Howard Porter.
Magog's got a bit of a problem: How can he use the vast resources of the Justice Society without them finding out he's going against their wishes/ Oh, and there's a more immediate problem: Facing off against the putrid villain known as Miasma in New York City. This issue continues the first arc from the creative team of writer Keith Giffen and artist Howard Porter. Click below for a look at the first four pages plus a intense Glenn Fabry cover. MAGOG #2 hits 10/7. [gallery link="file"]
Magog has a mommy? Who knew? Well, I'd imagine writer Keith Giffen and artist Howard Porter did. That's all the info we have for you, Source-ers, but we do have a lovely Porter design sketch for you to look at. We also managed to corner MAGOG editor Mike Carlin into giving us a tad more info on who this lady really is. Take it away, Mike: "We’ll meet Magog’s Mom, Alba in issue #4...When she calls Magog back home to Albion. Where the demigod’s roots are!" Fair enough. MAGOG #4 hits in January.
We unveiled a short preview of the first issue of MAGOG, from writer Keith Giffen and artist Howard Porter a while back, but it never hurts to gently remind you that it's in stores this week. We also thought it'd be nice to throw in a few extra pages, for good measure. Tired of the restraints that come with being a card-carrying member of the JSA, Magog decides to take justice into his own hands. But how does that synch up with Magog's own, apparently unavoidable destiny? We can't tell, but these pages should shed some light on the situation.
The Justice Society has always been about legacy. Young and old. Legends and rookies. Together to protect Earth from any kind of villain. But what happens when the generations disagree? After writers Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges conclude their first arc on JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA, the team splits – creatively and literally, with Willingham holding the fort and Sturges moving over to a new ongoing series, JSA ALL STARS, with artist Freddie E. Williams III.
