What is the “AQUAWAR”?

Before we roll into the full list of BRIGHTEST DAY solicits, we thought this merited a mention. Heck, the name alone gave us pause. “Aquawar”? As BRIGHTEST DAY barrels toward its grand finale, things heat up for one of the main protagonists and his supporting cast — it’s too early to get into details, but how about a look at the cover to February’s BRIGHTEST DAY #19 and the other key BRIGHTEST DAY titles and a few more clues below?

A sneak peek at BATMAN in February

If that stack comics on my desk (which I’ve kindly reposted above) from yesterday wasn’t clue enough, let me be frank: it’s an exciting time for Batman, and for Batman fans, like me. November lit the fuse and things are not slowing down. Come February, we’ve got the launch of J.H. Williams III and co.’s BATWOMAN ongoing, featuring co-writer W. Haden Blackman.

The Blackest Night is over, but the shockwaves are still being felt. And not every story has been told.

From the ashes of the dark, universe-spanning tale by superstars Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis comes BRIGHTEST DAY – but what stories remain hidden from the most horrific story to affect the DCU’s heroes? Well, glad you asked.

The long weekend is almost upon us, and minds tend to wander this close to the end of the work day. So, how about I provide you with a handful of links to click through and get through the day a bit faster?

A first look at Patrick Gleason’s BATMAN AND ROBIN

We’ve had a lot of Batman news of late, but one thing we haven’t shared is what the new creative team on BATMAN AND ROBIN will be doing visually. As we unveiled not long ago, Peter Tomasi will be taking over as writer with his former GREEN LANTERN CORPS collaborator Patrick Gleason stepping in as artist.

And now, to end a short week with some cool news, we present you with Gleason’s first cover, for November’s BATMAN AND ROBIN #17.
