You saw the preview of ADVENTURE COMICS #1 over at IGN, but the fun doesn't stop there. We've got a first-look at that series' co-feature, THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, from some guy named Johns and artist Clayton Henry. If you haven't been living under a rock, you've probably noticed Geoff's taken a fancy for all things Legion of late, from his work on LEGION OF THREE WORLDS and his SUPERMAN AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES arc in ACTION COMICS, among other things. So, here you have it.
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).
It's a short week here at The Source, what with our last summer Friday looming. Then it's back to the drain of five-day work weeks. Frightening, huh? But we've got a ton of stuff lined up to show off in the next few days, so no worries. And we know how much you like teaser art. What's better than that? Well, teaser art and news, no?
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.
Well, you'll have to wait until 8/19 for more clues. But, we do have a first look at interiors from the first issue, by writer Bryan Q. Miller and artist Lee Garbett, plus a variant cover by Cully Hamner. Nice way to start the week, huh? Start your guessing! [gallery link="file" columns="4"]
We decided Brian Azzarello put it best, so why try and spruce things up with a cheeky headline? Yesterday, we caught a look at J.G. Jones' amazing cover to the BATMAN/DOC SAVAGE SPECIAL, which kicks off a new era for the Doc, and and provides the springboard for more stories focusing on characters like The Blackhawks, Rima and more. Oh, and Batman. And, as we promised yesterday, we've got comments from Azzarello, who's masterminding the whole shebang. Take it away, Brian:
Isn't that a lovely Andy Kubert cover? You know what's better than that? Having an Andy Kubert cover with interiors by Mark Bagley. Words from Judd Winick don't hurt either. And here, in the second installment of the three-part "Long Shadows" arc, we find the newly-minted Batman scrambling to retrieve the Arkham Asylum escapees, while Two-Face begins a ground war of his own. But what's the Penguin up to? Catch a glimpse below. BATMAN #689 hits 8/12. [gallery link="file"]
Did you think we'd have only one bit of news on Thursday? Well, think again. As we've noted here, we'll be seeing a lot more of Doc Savage in the pages of DC comics in the near future. Now, we can actually give you a tad more, detail-wise.
Counting down the hours until the weekend? Aren't we all? Well, we've got some news and art for you, so time can crawl by a bit faster. Starting in November with RED ROBIN #6, Marcus To (Aspen's Soulfire) will step in as the new ongoing artist on RED ROBIN, taking over for Ramon Bachs, who steps over to launch AZRAEL with writer Fabian Nicieza. And, in lieu of me saying nice things about Marcus, I've cornered his editor, Michael Marts to give us the skinny on why Mr. To is the perfect choice to chronicle the continuing adventures of Tim Drake. Take it away, Marts:
By now, most of you have seen the pages and variant cover to DOOM PATROL #1 on NEWSARAMA and relived the most insane moments of DOOM PATROL history at COMICS ALLIANCE. But there's more to that pretty piece of art than that.
