We recently announced DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 “Second Wave,” which will launch GI COMBAT. This new series will feature rotating back up stories. First up is UNKNOWN SOLDIER by the writing team that brings you ALL-STAR WESTERN, Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, with art by Dan Panosian. We caught up with Justin and Jimmy to ask them about their story and here’s what they had to say:
Lucien Gates has no idea why he was chosen to be given the superhero powers that make him known as The Ray. But when San Diego falls under attack by an army of giant man-eating monsters, his purpose becomes clear when he must save both his hometown and the woman he loves before it’s too late. THE RAY #2 comes to you from the creative team of Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, Jamal Igle and Rich Perrotta and hits stores today. [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]

Check out a preview in this week’s DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 issues – and right here on THE SOURCE.
