Let's get this out of the way first, David Finch might be the nicest guy in comics. He's also a Batman fanatic and his love for the character is evident on every page of the upcoming BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT series. Luckily, you don't have to take my word for it. Just check out his variant cover to issue 4.
In addition to being a comic fan, I’m also a sports and music nerd. And like any fan, my imagination tends to wander. What if singer X played with guitarist Z? What if QB so-and-so had WR what’s-his-name to throw to? Would they have made one great, epic album? Would they have won the Super Bowl? The same kind of logic applies to comics. What if this writer worked with that artist on character X for an issue?
Before we roll into the full list of BRIGHTEST DAY solicits, we thought this merited a mention. Heck, the name alone gave us pause. “Aquawar”? As BRIGHTEST DAY barrels toward its grand finale, things heat up for one of the main protagonists and his supporting cast — it’s too early to get into details, but how about a look at the cover to February’s BRIGHTEST DAY #19 and the other key BRIGHTEST DAY titles and a few more clues below?
If that stack comics on my desk (which I’ve kindly reposted above) from yesterday wasn’t clue enough, let me be frank: it’s an exciting time for Batman, and for Batman fans, like me. November lit the fuse and things are not slowing down. Come February, we’ve got the launch of J.H. Williams III and co.’s BATWOMAN ongoing, featuring co-writer W. Haden Blackman.
It’s that time again. Your weekly dose of lovely variant cover and new regular cover art has arrived. What’s in store? How about BRIGHTEST DAY #13 by David Finch? If that’s not enough, we also have DCU: LEGACIES #7 by Brian Bolland, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #51 by Mark Bagley and ZATANNA #7 by Stephane Roux. Enjoy! [gallery link="file"]
You should be after you look over these promo images. And with NYCC in full swing, expect lots of BATMAN-centric chatter over the weekend. See you at the booth! [gallery link="file"]
Game on, folks. Starting a 1pm today, the doors to the Javits Center in NYC open up and NYCC 2010 will be in full swing. As Ian noted a few days ago, we’ll have an impressive array of talent, panels and giveaways to keep fans attending the show. But what to do until the show starts?
