Not long ago, we unveiled artist John Cassaday’s lovely reinterpretation of SUPERMAN #1, as part of our DC 75th anniversary celebration. Earlier still, we confirmed that John was going to be the regular cover artist on SUPERMAN, accompanying the work of writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Eddy Barrows. So, that implies we’ll have more SUPERMAN Cassaday artwork, right? Correct. Here’s his cover to #702, the second part of JMS’ “Grounded” story. Perfect image to follow Memorial Day weekend, don’t you think?
Let's go over our SUPERMAN checklist, shall we? Great writer? J. Michael Straczynski. Check. Great artist? Eddy Barrows. Check. Great cover artist? John Cassaday. Check. Wait, what? Yep -- you read that correctly. Starting with SUPERMAN #701, the artist behind the masterful PLANETARY and many more amazing projects will be lending his eye to detail and dynamic design work to SUPERMAN's covers. Neat, huh? But we wouldn't just announce something this big without an image, so here's a first look at John's #701 cover. Enjoy.
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.
