Happy Monday! Start your morning with THE NEW YORK POST's story on J. Michael Straczynski and Shane Davis' SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE. And stay tuned for more in advance of the book hitting comic shops Wednesday!
It’s not a stretch to say that a lot of work goes into getting what you hold in your hands when you have a finished comic book or graphic novel. From script to pencils to inks to colors to the final printed or digital copy you hold in your hands, the creative process is a wonder for an outsider to see. That brings us to PROCESS PIECE, which will be a regular feature here on The Source. What we hope to do is bring you, the reader, into the room – from script to final lettering – so you can get a sense of what’s going on with not only your favorite characters, but your favorite creators.
It's good to have you loyal members of the DC Nation with us during these exciting times. As we get closer to the end of an epic 2010, we are pleased to tell you that 2011 is going to be even more amazing. We are in full gear with plans for your favorite characters, and the list of new ideas is growing every day. It's fitting, then during this period where we are working with you in mind, that we welcome you into our home city for the New York City Comic Con.
This week, we’ve got a look at Neal Adams’ BATMAN: ODYSSEY #4 sketch variant, Ryan Sook’s BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #5 cover, David Finch’s lovely Firestorm-focused BRIGHTEST DAY #11 and Shane Davis’ epic BRUCE WAYNE – THE ROAD HOME covers. We teased the pencils, but now you can see all the covers in their full, colored glory. Click away, folks! [gallery link="file"]
This October, writer J. Michael Straczynski (Superman, Wonder Woman, Babylon 5, “Changeling”) and artist Shane Davis (Green Lantern, Superman/Batman) will take readers on a journey both familiar and new – a story of a last son looking for meaning amidst the skyscrapers and teeming crowds of a great metropolis. This is a Superman for the 21st century. With SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, Straczynski and Davis inject the folk tale and legend that is Superman’s origin with a modern, vital and forward-looking energy that makes for a refreshing, epic and challenging super-hero adventure.
When we unveiled the full roster of BRUCE WAYNE: THE ROAD HOME books last month, the covers were kept under tight wraps. But we did reveal one thing – it’d be a connected image, featuring a number of the key characters that reside on the Bat-universe, by none other than SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE artist Shane Davis.
Bruce Wayne is back – but what has he returned to? In his absence, his closest allies and deadliest enemies have blazed a new path, creating a Gotham that’s different and in many ways more menacing than the city he left behind. So, how do his protégés, allies and foes react to the man that stands before them?
