DC brings back key war titles in September

The DC offices are closed today, so posting will be light. And, I should be well on my ways to a few days of rest in the Florida Keys as you read this. But we do have one cool bit of news for you to carry you through this Memorial Day weekend.

The branches of The Golden Tree spread out in THE SPIRIT #2

Angel Smerti’s a lady who gets what she wants – and her top priority is seeing The Spirit in a coffin. Plus, our hero’s first encounter with the sprawling criminal empire known as The Golden Tree reveals that the organization threatens much more than just Central City. All of this and a few surprises thanks to writer Mark Schultz and artist Moritat.

THE SPIRIT #2 hits 5/19.

THE SPIRIT #1 is here

Starting today, the Spirit returns in an all-new ongoing series from writer Mark Schultz and artist Moritat. Central City destroys everyone who lives within its borders, so it's a good thing The Spirit's already experienced being dead, huh?

The international crime syndicate known as The Golden Tree wants to help the devious Octopus consolidate his control over the underworld and the Spirit is the kind of mess the evil conglomerate was created to clean up. What chance does the vigilante have against one of The Golden Tree's deadliest assassins? Guess we'll find out...

Take a look at Mark Schultz’s THE SPIRIT #1 variant cover

Some things you probably know: The Spirit returns in a new ongoing series next month from writer Mark Schultz and artist Moritat. We showed off a page of the first SPIRIT: BLACK AND WHITE co-feature by Dennis O’Neil and Bill Sienkiewicz just last week.

Did you also know that Mark Schultz is not only writing the issue, but also contributing a variant cover? It’s possible. But I know it hasn’t been seen yet, so here it is:

The FIRST WAVE expands in April

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.
