So far, Nightwing and Flamebird's attempts at apprehending Zod's sleeper agents have worked out pretty well. But enter Az-Rel and Nadira Va-Dim, and we've got problems. The "Bonnie and Clyde of Krypton" have turned the tables on our new heroes, and the race to prevent an all-out war with New Krypton may be over before it's even begun. Written by Greg Rucka , with art by Fernando Dagnino and Raul Fernandez, this issue also includes the first installment of the CAPTAIN ATOM co-feature, from Rucka, co-writer James Robinson and artist CAFU. Check out a few pages from the lead story below.
It's hard to wait, isn't it? Fear not, Source readers. The first issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE will be in your hands in a few short days. By now, you've probably seen the preview, so what else could we tease before the issue hits? How about the cover to #4, by artist Mauro Cascioli?
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!
Heard the big news from last week? Well, we announced the new creative team for JUSTICE LEAGUE. Specifically, writer James Robinson and artist Mark Bagley. But before Bagley -- who just wrapped up a historic run on the weekly TRINITY series -- steps aboard JUSTICE LEAGUE, he's got a three-issue arc on BATMAN, pairing him with writer Judd Winick. We teased a page before, but we've got three more that you may want to check out. BATMAN #688 hits 7/8. [gallery link="file" columns="4"]
The Justice League has always been about loyalty, friendship and teamwork. But it's also about Justice. When Green Lantern challenges his teammates to focus on that aspect of the name in the wake of the death of Martian Manhunter and Batman's disappearance, he finds himself on the ground floor of a new team's formation. GL, Green Arrow, Supergirl, Atom, Shazam, Congorilla and Starman unite to take the fight to the villains in the first part of a seven-part mini-series from writer James Robinson and artist Mauro Cascioli. Do you really need more convincing? Probably not.
It's a short week here at The Source, what with our bosses letting us have Friday off. But that just means we have to end the week with a bang. So, let's get right to it: Writer James Robinson and artist Mark Bagley will be the new ongoing creative team on JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, starting in October. I'll give you a minute or two to wipe the drool off your keyboards.
What is a young man to do when he's handed a death sentence? Experience life as best you can, no? Mon-El deals with his fate by doing just that -- exploring the world and interacting with some of DC's international cast of heroes. But back in Metropolis, a new media mogul takes the airwaves. His name? Morgan Edge. Writer James Robinson and artist Renato Guedes continue their stellar run on SUPERMAN with issue #689, and we have some pages for you to peruse. SUPERMAN #689 hits 6/24.

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.
