DCU in 2011: Starstruck

After butting heads with the Green Lantern Corps and cooling tensions with Tamaran, it seemed like things were getting ready to settle down for Vril Dox’s intrinsically not settled down R.E.B.E.L.S. team, but Starro the Conqueror is back to throw a wrench in the works.

Starro strikes tomorrow in R.E.B.E.L.S. #24, part one of STARSTRUCK, from writer Tony Bedard, and artists Claude St. Aubin and Scott Hanna.

R.E.B.E.L.S. featuring special guest star John Stewart

For R.E.B.E.L.S. #23, writer Tony Bedard and artists Claude St. Aubin and Scott Hanna bring in a special guest star: none other than Green Lantern John Stewart!

In the issue, Adam Strange plays peacemaker between Vril Dox's band of rebellious space cops and the entire Green Lantern Corps, and negotiations aren't going well at all. Let's hope Lobo can stay on his best behavior... but I wouldn't bet any of own money on that!

R.E.B.E.L.S. #23 hits stands today.

Adam Strange and Captain Comet crash the R.E.B.E.L.S. party with #9

Get a look at R.E.B.E.L.S. #5

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

Have a slice of R.E.B.E.L.S. #4

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.

R.E.B.E.L.S: Claude St. Aubin steps in

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:
