Happy Monday, Source readers. To ease you into the work week and to avoid a case of the Mondays, we've got some pages from SUPERGIRL ANNUAL #1, from writer Sterling Gates and artist Fernando Dagnino. As faithful SUPERGIRL readers know, in SUPERGIRL #34 the Girl of Steel adopted the new secret identity of Linda Lang. But how long until someone finds out her secret? Find out with this issue, as Gates and Dagnino chronicle Supergirl's initial attempt to live a double life in "Linda Lang: Day One."
The regular SUPERGIRL Team of writer Sterling Gates and artist Jamal Igle roar into the third part of the "Codename: Patriot" crossover, as Supergirl and Mon-El throw down against Nightwing and Flamebird. What happens when the Girl of Steel has to face off against one of her oldest and dearest friends, just as General Lane puts the next phase of his master plan into action -- with some help from a guy named Atlas. Check out some pages from #44 below, which hits 8/19.
Now that you've gotten the lowdown on CODENAME: PATRIOT from our very own Matt Idelson, we've got a few preview pages from the second installment, written by Greg Rucka with art by artist Julian Lopez (with another installment of Rucka and James Robinson's CAPTAIN ATOM, featuring art by CAFU).
A rare non-rainy day and I find myself trapped indoors with Wil Moss, putting the finishing touches on SUPERMAN #691, the fourth and final chapter of our latest Superman crossover, “Codename: Patriot”. While Wil goes over some dialogue tweaks involving the not-so-nice General Lane with James Robinson, I’m going over David Curiel’s colors. We’re asking a lot of David on this one, and so far, he’s been more than up to the challenge.
Up-and-coming artist Rafael Albuquerque joins the ongoing writing team of Michael Green and Mike Johnson for a tale of the World's Finest duo -- Robin and Supergirl. When the inmates take over at Arkham, can anyone but the Boy Wonder and the Maid of Might put things right? Check out a few pages below to see.
SUPERMAN/BATMAN #62 hits 7/15.

Ooh, look! Sun! I’d forgotten what that looks like. Neat. Today is a bit of a mad scramble (what else is new?). We’re wrapping up the lettering on ACTION COMICS #879, which means a lot of emailing back and forth with letterer Rob Leigh. He’s come up with what I think will be a stronger method for the English subtitles to all the crazy Kryptonian speak going on in the book. And if this doesn’t work, we’ll just start throwing sound chips in the book!
You may have noticed a trend here at The Source. We like to show cool art once it appears in our inbox. SUPERMAN Group Editor Matt Idelson and his assistant Wil Moss, coincidentally, like to forward us cool art. It works out nicely.
So, to close out this Monday, we've got three covers from SUPERMAN artist Renato Guedes. The covers, for ACTION COMICS ANNUAL, SUPERMAN ANNUAL and SUPERGIRL form a loose triptych image. What's better than a Guedes image? Well, three.
Batman and Martian Manhunter are gone. But these aren't the first heroes to fall prey to the villains populating the DCU. And, not surprisingly, some heroes are tired of reacting, and instead want to take the battle to the bad guys themselves. The new team of Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Supergirl, Atom, Shazam, Congorilla and Starman unite in JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE, a six-issue mini-series from writer James Robinson and rising star artist Mauro Cascioli.
Hey folks! As usual, we have our regular “From the Editors” post coming your way. Being the diligent worker we all know and love, Matt Idelson managed to give us his entry early, as he made his escape to the distant land of Barcelona. Enjoy...
