And, if we know, you’ll soon find out. Usually. But before we go ahead and give you the news, we want to remind you that superstar artist Cameron Stewart is locked and loaded as the artist on BATMAN AND ROBIN for three issues, the first one of which hits next month. We’ve been super-careful about showing any art until the perfect time – now.
I hate to sound like too much of a broken record, but one of the perks of wandering around the DCU editorial floor is you get to slyly scan over all the cool art and sketches the editors have on their desks and in their offices. It's always a treat to see what stuff is coming in from our various and hugely talented creators. Case in point: If you haven't been reading writer David Hine and artist Jeremy Haun's ARKHAM REBORN, you're truly missing out on the reimagining of a key component of the Bat-mythos. Still not sold?
Jeremiah Arkham's dream for a new asylum is rapidly turning into a nightmare as he is forced to call in Batman to put down a riot. But who or what is behind the sabotage? Is it possible that the asylum itself is inflicting its own retribution on the inmates? Find out in this 3-issue miniseries from the BATTLE FOR THE COWL: ARKHAM ASYLUM creative team of writer David Hine and artist Jeremy Haun. ARKHAM REBORN #2 hits 11/25. [gallery link="file"]
Yesterday, we showed some pages from the Batwoman feature in DETECTIVE COMICS #859 -- but let's not forget about The Question second feature, from Greg Rucka and artist Cully Hamner. The case may be closed closed, but Renee won't stop until she has the answers! When a new lead points to the Sicilian mafia, The Question turns to an expert for assistance. But can she trust the Huntress to be professional when family rears its ugly head? DETECTIVE COMICS #859 hits 11/25. [gallery link="file"]
Writer Greg Rucka and artist J.H. Williams III continue unveiling the origin of Batwoman, as Kate Kane lands in Gotham, meets officer Renee Montoya and crosses paths with Batman -- a meeting that will change her life forever. Don't miss a chapter of this groundbreaking run, folks. You'll regret it. Scroll down for a few pages from the issue, which hits 11/25. People that know me will understand how difficult it was for me to post pages involving any kind of werewolf, so there you go.
Writer Fabian Nicieza and artist Ramon Bachs present the second issue of the new ongoing Azrael series, as the White Ghost presents a trial to the new Azrael: save an Angel or condemn a Devil. While it may sound like a simple choice, Azrael has to decide if the perceived saint is a sinner or if the sinner is an innocent man. And what if the architect of the experiment, Ra's al Ghul, is secretly testing all those involved to see who can best serve as his ultimate Dark Knight? [gallery link="file"]
Next to the job interview, the next most-stressful thing when it comes to work is your first day. Am I right? Well, imagine if your gig didn't involve sitting at a desk, but jumping around on the rooftops of Gotham's seedier neighborhoods? Welcome to Stephanie Brown's new role as Batgirl. And, as she'll soon learn, it takes a lot more to wear the mantle of the Bat than she originally thought. From the regular team of writer Bryan Q. Miller and artist Lee Garbett comes a tale of learning the ropes and frat parties. I kid you not.
The headline says it all. RED ROBIN writer Chris Yost was kind enough to pop by The Source and give us the reasons why you guys should save a spot for the latest issue of the series tomorrow. Take it away, Chris: 10. Superstar artist Marcus To joins the team with this issue! 9. Marcus To's rendition of Red Robin leading a gang of ninjas into battle. 8. Marcus To's rendition of ninjas dying horrible deaths at the hands of Recluse, a member of the Council of Spiders (the same people that are hunting the League of Assassins for sport).
