Tying into his recent debut in the pages of R.E.B.E.L.S., the origin of the real Starro the Conqueror is revealed. Why have we never seen this cosmic barbarian before? And how did he amass his army of super-soldiers? The answers are all here, courtesy of writer Tony Bedard and a collection of top artists -- including Kalman Andrasofszky, Derec Donovan, Joe Prado and Karl Moline -- with each one handling a chapter of the story. Check out some preview pages below. R.E.B.E.L.S. ANNUAL: STARRO THE CONQUEROR hits 10/7.
There's no arguing that artist Kalman Andrasofzsky is one talented guy. So why not take a look at some of his more recent work? Specifically, his covers on R.E.B.E.L.S.? We swung by Editor Brian Cunningham's office to get the lowdown. Take it away, Brian:
Tony Bedard and artist Claude St. Aubin keep the heat going in the pages of R.E.B.E.L.S., as the abductor of the intergalactic L.E.G.I.O.N. police force stands revealed, leading the entire sector to mobilize. What happens when Vril Dox's team of renegades teams up with the Omega Men, Durlans, Khunds and Dominators? Well, you can get at least some of the answers here. R.E.B.E.L.S. #5 hits 6/10 [gallery link="file"]
Tony Bedard welcomes guest artist Claude St. Aubin aboard just in time to meet the galaxy's new would-be conquerer. Dox and the Omega Men plot their next move as the alien Khunds and Dominators team up to face off against the mysterious threat. As tempting as it might be, though, do not -- I repeat -- do not just jump to the last page. It's a shocking one. Yup. R.E.B.E.L.S. #4 hits 5/13. [gallery link="file"]
Part of the fun that comes with working on The Source is the chance to see cool art pop into my inbox from the hardworking DCU editors. As I was wandering around the sixth floor earlier this week, R.E.B.E.L.S editor Brian Cunningham let me know that artist Claude St. Aubin will be stepping in for regular artist Andy Clarke on R.E.B.E.L.S, with writer Tony Bedard. Instead of just rephrasing what Brian told me, I've decided to quote him directly. It's like live-blogging, except not at all:
Mr. Jerkface himself, Vril Dox, continues his recruiting drive to rebuild L.E.G.I.O.N. But who swiped it in the first place? Writer Tony Bedard and artist Andy Clarke bring in the surprises with this issue, also guest-starring the Omega Men. Don't believe me? Fine. Just look at the art then. R.E.B.E.L.S #3 hits on 4/15.
