We hit the ground running with some major news not long ago — announcing that JMS was not only writing SUPERMAN, but WONDER WOMAN as well. And earlier today we talked a bit about SAMARITAN X, JMS’ newly announced OGN.
It's been a busy few weeks for Mr. Straczynski, huh? Not only did we announce his upcoming run on both SUPERMAN and WONDER WOMAN, but just last night, COMIC BOOK RESOURCES spoke to the superstar writer about another DCU original graphic novel, SAMARITAN X.
