Hey comics fan, got any plans this weekend? If you're like me you're at a bit of a crossroads during this time of year. The NFL season is over, the Olympics are over, Oscar Season is over...what are you supposed to do? Well fear not because Convention Season has just started! That's right, chances are that we'll be bringing the 2010 DC Nation Tour to a town near you sometime soon and trust me when I tell you that it's a show you won't want to miss.
Well, we're hoping that by now you've read OUTSIDERS #26, the first issue of writer Dan DiDio and artist Philip Tan's run on the team series. If not, you should swing down the street to your local shop and plop a few bucks down for the issue. I'll happily wait here and do a few things in the meantime. Back? Well, what'd you think? The issue had team tension, rain-soaked slashing, tormented heroes and a surprise cameo. Pretty cool, huh? And yeah, about that cameo...click below for more. "Spoiler alert," as the kids say...
Grant Morrison and artist Philip Tan kick out the jams with the shocking conclusion fo "The Revenge of the Red Hood." Gotham's newest "protector" reveals his identity to Batman -- and surprisingly poses a heart-stopping question to nim about the future of Bruce Wayne. And, can Robin escape the clutches of Scarlet? Unclear, folks. But we do have a few pages for you to scan before the issue hits. BATMAN AND ROBIN #6 hits 11/11. [gallery link="file"]
On Tuesday, we showed you a prelim cover to OUTSIDERS #27, by Mr. Philip Tan. If you didn't make with the click then, please do so now. I'll wait. I have some emails to check and so forth. OK, cool right? Well, we've got the inked cover for you to drool over now, too. See? Great things can get even better.
In the spirit of my favorite time of the year…here are a few things that scare me. THE FLAMINGO. This guy has death and danger written all over him. He rides a motorcycle and rips people’s faces off for fun. Oh yeah, and to top it all off, he’s dressed head-to-toe in pink. What’s not to be afraid of? If Batman & Robin thought they had their hands full with Red Hood & Scarlet, well, they haven’t seen anything yet. Check out the Flamingo in all of his pink and face-ripping glory in BATMAN & ROBIN #6.
Last weekend, we broke the news that Dan DiDio and artist Philip Tan would be taking on the creative reins of THE OUTSIDERS. We even had a nice piece of Tan art. Well, now we've got the finished piece, which will be the cover to the team's first issue, OUTSIDERS #26, hitting in January. So, why wait? Click away, friends.
