New comic books go on sale today, including JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA issue 53, the final chapter of "JLA Omega" by James Robinson and Mark Bagley. The alliance between the Justice League and the Crime Syndicate has broken down. Things look grim. Can there possibly be a plan that will defeat Omega Man? Batman must have a plan, right? I mean, he always has a plan. Uh, right?
Here’s a pair of awesome variant covers to brighten up your Tuesday. First, Firestorm and Sinestro clash on the variant cover of GREEN LANTERN CORPS #57, by Ed Benes. Next, another beautiful variant by David Mack, this time for JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #54, kicking off the start of “The Rise of Eclipso.”
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #57
"The Rise of Eclipso" begins in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA issue 54 and, so far, we've kept the lid tight on the details of James Robinson's epic storyline. But we can confirm, this one's got it all: * Shade. * Doomsday. * Blue Lantern Saint Walker joins the League to ensure that all will be well. * Alpha Lantern Boodikka and Supergirl on the trail of the Cyborg Superman. * The return of one of the DCU's classic villains, Eclipso.
... Saint Walker! As revealed in this great Brett Booth cover to Justice League of America #55 . Justice League of America #55 continues the Reign of Doomsday storyline and hits stores in March.
It's been a cold, cold week here in New York and across much of the country. Yes, winter is undeniably here. So while folks outside are bundled up and dressed for arctic conditions, I'm personally glad to have the distraction of March's solicits, which break online Monday. Over the course of the day, we'll have a couple of teases for you to remind us all that, oh yeah, spring will come again.
Here's a couple of variant covers (and one non-variant) to end the day. We've got a double dose of BRIGHTEST DAY, with the covers to issues #17 and #18. Issue #17 is a non-variant by David Finch, and #18 is a variant by Ivan Reis and Oclair Albert. Next, Bill Sienkiewicz has an energetic, stylish cover for DCU: LEGACIES #9. And there's an awesome David Mack variant cover to JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #53. Enjoy. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
Doomsday is coming back. A few of you drew this conclusion from last week's tease, and we'll confirm here that the Kryptonian killing machine will return to Earth early next year - and you don't need me to tell you that's never a good sign for the heroes of the DCU. Doomsday will first make his presence known this January in STEEL #1 - but I can promise you, he won't be the only hero facing Doomsday's wrath for long. The story will continue with: Part 2: OUTSIDERS #37
It’s that time again. Your weekly dose of lovely variant cover and new regular cover art has arrived. What’s in store? How about BRIGHTEST DAY #13 by David Finch?
