And you thought we were done with SDCC 2010 posts! Well, far from it. While at the show, we managed to snag a number of pictures – of fans, creators and other assorted highlights from the show. So, scroll below for a visual recap of the event, courtesy of my cellphone camera and others. Click below to begin.
Lex's quest for power - specifically, the power wielded by the Black Lantern ring -- continues, as writer Paul Cornell and artist Pete Woods' second issue ups the ante for the villainous star. Buckle in for a greatest hits tour of the DCU's most wanted as Lex Luthor continues his epic hunt, with covers by superstar artist David Finch. [gallery link="file"]
After the BLACKEST NIGHT comes the BRIGHTEST DAY, and if you’re still reeling from the amazing look of the DC DIRECT figures surrounding last year’s DCU-spanning event, you may need to sit down for this one. Starting in March, DC DIRECT will kick off another series of high-quality and story-specific product, this time based around the hit biweekly series, BRIGHTEST DAY. We've got a first look at the first two waves, which include Hawkgirl, Green Arrow, Deadman, Aquaman, Hawkman, Martian Manhunter, Firestorm and Mera.
We promised big news. It doesn’t get much bigger than this. When we announced superstar artist David Finch was going to be joining the ranks of the DC NATION, it was with the news that he’d be handling the covers on BRIGHTEST DAY and ACTION COMICS. But not only is Finch a all-star caliber cover artist, he’s a master storyteller. Fans got a taste of the compelling narrative Finch can create visually with the pages he did in BATMAN #700, paired with writer Grant Morrison. But we can now add another credit to Finch’s vast resume: writer/artist. Of an ongoing Batman series.
The mysteries deepen! What secret is Mera hiding? Where have Hawkman and Hawkgirl disappeared to? And what annoys Hawk the most about Deadman? Find out in this issue as we march closer towards the turning point of issue #7 as Hawk and Dove join the mission to uncover the truth behind their returns and what it means to the rest of the DCU! Here are a few pages from BRIGHTEST DAY #5, all courtesy of the stellar team of Johns, Tomasi and the comic industry’s greatest artists. BRIGHTEST DAY #5 hits tomorrow. [gallery link="file"]
