Well, I hope it sells well, then I'm a big supporter of Chris' art and he's done great things on the title.
<<...I wonder if it'll draw in curious readers, or just make them roll their eyes...>>
I expect it will be the second-best selling issue of STRIKES of the year, behind Josh Elder's recent Superman/Batman crossover. Cuz you just can't beat Supes and The Bat together!
DC Comics released the solicitation information for their September 2008 shipping comics, including their DC animated titles (comics based on the cartoons we cover here at The World's Finest). Here's what we can expect in September from our favorite animated titles, with the information provided by DC Comics:
THE BATMAN STRIKES! #49
Written by: Matt Manning
Cover by: Christopher Jones & Terry Beatty
Cover by: Andie Tong
What happens when Batman and Robin chase villains around Gotham all night? Dick Grayson falls asleep in class! Between his angry teacher and the monstrous Killer Moth Robin's in for one long day. On sale September 3rd, 2008.
THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES IN THE 31st CENTURY #18
Written by: J. Torres
Art by: Ethen Beavers
Cover by: Alexander Serra
Computer chaos hits New Metropolis, crippling the high-tech city and throwing the Legion into the Dark Ages as communications crash, starships collide and magic takes over! Brainiac 5 has to prove that science is stronger than sorcery...but will he have to give up his place in the Legion to do it? On sale September 10th, 2008.
Well it looks like Chris Jones won't get to do the Wonder Woman issue he was so looking forward to do, considering the next and final issue of Batman Strikes is a Halloween themed story.
Oh well, issue 49 looks entertaining at least.
I wonder why DC haven't cancelled Legion of superheroes yet?
Cool Rider, Catwoman, Diamond and all round Goddess
I'll miss you dad xx
I guess they're being sympathetic towards LOSH (for the time being) since the show only lasted for 2 seasons. But more likely, they probably don't want to annoy J. Torres even further, who was also the main writer for TTG!
"Are you the dreamer or merely part of someone's dream?" - The Mad Hatter.
B:TAS - Perchance to Dream.
Just my speculation, though.
P.S. That cover for "The Batman Strikes!" #49 looks sweet! It's good that the series is going to issue 50. :]
Like indie rock? Check out The Vogans.
Nice covers, both descriptions are intersting. Let's hope the stories are cool just as well.
