In addition to recapping the blockbuster announcements from DC Entertainment at this year’s COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL SAN DIEGO, DCE Co-Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio treated fans to some exciting news for fans of the “Earth One” series of original graphic novels. In 2016, fan favorite writer J. Michael Strazynski follows up his best-selling SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE tale with a new look at the Scarlet Speedster in FLASH: EARTH ONE. In addition, Francis Manapul (DETECTIVE COMICS) will provide his take on the King of the Seas in AQUAMAN: EARTH ONE.
He’s hinted and he’s teased, but at a press event in Burbank last Thursday highlighting his long and illustrious career, award-winning writer Grant Morrison finally announced the Wonder Woman-related project he’s been working on with superstar artist Yanick Paquette: the original graphic novel WONDER WOMAN: EARTH ONE!
The idea of what could have been always intrigues. It’s literally the basis of fictional storytelling. Those magic words: what if?
What if a stranger visitor from another world came to Earth and our yellow sun granted him amazing abilities far beyond that of normal man? What if a young boy with unlimited funds and resources saw his parents gunned down in front of him and began a never-ending quest for justice? What if a dying alien gifted a young pilot with the most powerful weapon in the galaxy?
When it comes to "highly anticipated titles" it really doesn't get any highly...ier than BATMAN: EARTH ONE, the original graphic novel by award-winning writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank.
But with the title now out in comic shops and available for digital download, feel free to stop anticipating and instead put a pillow under your face. Because you'll want a cushion for when your jaw drops to the floor!
