STEEL #1, the first part of the REIGN OF DOOMSDAY storyline, has sold out and gone back for a second printing, this time with a blood-red cover. Foreboding, right? Check it out below. Along with that, we have a few more variants for you. First up is Andy Clarke’s variant cover to Finch’s BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT #2 followed closely by another dynamic Felipe Massafera variant to GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD WARRIORS #7. Rounding out the batch is Kevin Maguire’s cover to JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #19. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
Doomsday's back - and while we agree that that’s not a good sign for the heroes of the DCU, we can still ask: why did Doomsday return? Well, I asked, and I got a hint back in return. Here's a few words from DC Executive Editor Eddie Berganza about Reign of Doomsday:
Next year's "Reign of Doomsday" storyline is still shrouded in mystery. We've done a couple teases here on The Source, and here's another: this great splash by Ed Benes from STEEL #1! Excited? Me too.
Doomsday is coming back. A few of you drew this conclusion from last week's tease, and we'll confirm here that the Kryptonian killing machine will return to Earth early next year - and you don't need me to tell you that's never a good sign for the heroes of the DCU. Doomsday will first make his presence known this January in STEEL #1 - but I can promise you, he won't be the only hero facing Doomsday's wrath for long. The story will continue with: Part 2: OUTSIDERS #37
You read that correctly. An interstellar conflict waged at superspeed. Could this be in any way related to THE WAR OF THE SUPERMEN, which we announced not too long ago? Same thing, folks, and it's all hitting in May, courtesy of writers Sterling Gates and James Robinson. An epic, defining battle for the Man of Steel unleashed in one month. Because super-beings that fly fast? Well, they fight pretty fast, too.
