In addition to the 75th anniversary covers we’ll be rolling out here on The Source this week and beyond, we’ve also got a first look at DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES #1 for you. As some of you know, LEGACIES spans five generations of heroes, from the dawn of the Mystery Men to the present. In the first issue, the Second World War rages on, setting the stage for the debut of a new hero. Masked myths become legends as they begin to step outside of the shadows to earn their place in history.
You know the basics on the series: DCU: LEGACIES goes back to the roots of the DC Universe and tells the tale of ts heroes from the dawn of the masked men to more modern days. Written by industry veteran Len Wein and featuring the artistic talents of superstar artist Andy Kubert (inked by his legendary father, Joe Kubert) on the first issue, LEGACIES is a nod to the DCU's rich and storied history presented to the modern reader.
As noted in today’s New York Times feature, Joe Kubert, author and artist of the award-winning original graphic novel Yossel and founder of The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, will be publishing DONG XOAI, VIETNAM 1965 to be released by The Joe Kubert Library in May 2010.
