Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at BATMAN/SUPERMAN #20 and STRANGE SPORTS STORIES #1.
The previews for the second issues of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 continue to roll in. Take a look at what people are saying about the books on sale tomorrow: Following up on their recent preview of his DEMON KNIGHTS #1, the Paul Cornell enthusiasts at WIRED’s UNDERWIRE have an exclusive 4-page glimpse of STORMWATCH #2 by Cornell, Miguel Sepulveda and Al Barrionuevo.
In the second issues of the “Edge” group books, the odds are not in our protagonists’ favor. In DEATHSTROKE, MEN OF WAR and ALL-STAR WESTERN, new villains will be revealed. Grifter and Voodoo are on the run while Stormwatch, the Blackhawks, O.M.A.C. and the Suicide Squad must fight battles that’ll have grave consequences.
Much of the creative process involves drawing inspiration from previous art. iFANBOY caught up with MEN OF WAR writer Ivan Brandon for a list of his top five war stories. Check out the full list over at iFANBOY to learn what stories sparked Ivan’s interest and you’ll also get an exclusive look at the logo for MEN OF WAR.
We’ve teased this creative team a few times here already, but now’s your chance to get a handful of artist Nic Klein’s final pages, penned by the writing team of Azzarello and Brandon.
We’ve seen a few stunning images of preview art from rising star Nic Klein. We’ve heard from Assistant Editor Chris Conroy. But what about the new co-writing team of Ivan Brandon and Brian Azzarello? Well, as promised, we touched base with both of them and managed to finagle a few more pieces of new art from their first issue. So, what say you, guys?
