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.
Hopefully all the Friday FIRST WAVE goodness got you excited for the debut issue of the mini-series from writer Brian Azzarello and artist Rags Morales, which is packed with neo-noir action and deftly reimagined icons, including the Bat-Man, Doc Savage and the Spirit.
Just got off the phone with Brian. He’s gotta make a few simple adjustments on the next FIRST WAVE script. • Gotta call Rags Morales. Let him know everybody in the office is slapping me on the back for the looks of the first issue, as if I drew it. Might as well ring him up and share the, er, credit. • Gotta call Nei Ruffino, same reason. • Pardon my sharing my “to-do” list like this, but it’s the only way I can remember it all. • Gotta call Howard Porter, make sure we’re getting more DOC SAVAGE pages like the one here.
If that lengthy preview this morning wasn't enough for you, then we have another piece of lovely art to make Friday all the more fun. Courtesy of cover artist extraordinaire J.G. Jones, here's a peek at The Bat-Man, from the cover to FIRST WAVE #3. And for those of you that missed it the first time, we've included Lee Bermejo's lovely FIRST WAVE #3 variant.
In a world without super powers, there are still those men and women who merit the name "hero." In the long shadow of The War and amidst the rubble of a shattered world, humanity's last hope may be a handful of masked vigilantes with only their fists and wits at their disposal against a shadowy cabal known only as The Golden Tree. Enter Doc Savage, a veritable super man plagued by the loss of his father and a nagging suspicion that something evil lurks around the corner.
It's almost here -- an Earth very much like our own, but featuring a collection of pulp and noir heroes that include the Batman, the Spirit, Doc Savage, Black Canary and many more.
