Marc Guggenheim isn’t the only big name signing up for the Justice Society. Come October, artist Scott Kolins will be stepping aboard the series for a spell, and, well, that begs for a peek at some art, no?

In part 4 of the JLA/JSA crossover, everything's going dark for the two greatest Super Hero teams in all of comics as the Starheart makes its final bid to obliterate the good in Green Lantern's life – and all of reality – forcing both teams to seek help from an unlikely ally.

It’s been a hectic and exciting week here at The Source and beyond, so we thought it’d be a good idea to take a minute to round up some of the more notable posts from the last few days: • DCE Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns unveiled an exclusive look at a live-action screen test for Blue Beetle.
The return of one hero heralds the release of the powerful Starheart, which empowers Green Lantern Alan Scott. Now, with this chaotic energy unleashed on Earth, magic has gone wild and new metahumans are emerging. Definitely more than one super-team can handle, even the famed Justice Society of America. But can even the combined efforts of the JSA and the Justice League of America contain the light and dark power wielded by one of their own? The five-part crossover event by writer James Robinson and artist Mark Bagley aims to answer these questions and more.

And we saved a good one for Friday, folks. Frank Harry’s cover to ALL STAR COMICS #16 puts the spotlight squarely on some of the key characters of the early DCU – specifically, the Justice Society of America.

What’s atop Supergirl’s to-do list after rejoining the JLA? Fight Power Girl to the death, apparently!
