And so we come to Week Four–marking the end of September, the month that ushered in the debut of DC Comics-The New 52 and the unprecedented transformation of the entire DC Universe. It’s hard to believe we’re finally here because for us September started a long time ago. Let me explain: It’s been quite a ride since the writers conference that initiated this evolution. It’s been a year of pitch meetings, story conferences and design sessions that often went far into the night. It’s been a year of hard work on everyone’s part and truth be told – it’s been a lot of fun.
We've spoken a lot about the editorial side of yesterday's historic announcement, with our editors Bob Harras and Eddie Berganza taking lead on things like new stories and finding the perfect writers to handle each of our books. I'd also like to call attention the visual side of this major initiative.
Mark Chiarello Named VP Art Direction & Design – DC Comics
I wouldn’t say we’ve saved the best for last. With a project like WEDNESDAY COMICS, every strip was loaded with so much energy and talent, it’s hard to pick your favorite. On sheer numbers alone, though, this posts definitely ends out weeklong spotlight with a bang.
Yesterday, we kicked off the week with a double-dose of sketches from artists Eduardo Risso and Lee Bermejo, spotlighting the BATMAN and SUPERMAN WEDNESDAY COMICS strips, respectively. But why stop there? Today, we’ve got design sketches from the über-talented Ryan Sook, who – along with writer Dave Gibbons – handled the KAMANDI strip from WEDNESDAY COMICS, which hits tomorrow. Do you need any more incentive to pick one up? I’d hope not.
This Wednesday, fans will find an innovative, historic and just plain fun collection waiting for them when they step into their comic shops.
