Doomed in September - a sneak

Newsarama has a sneak peek into September's solicits. That peek includes this little ditty:

Art and cover by MATTHEW CLARK with RON RANDALL
The Chief has been experimenting on a captured Kryptonian in his spare time, and he just figured out the method by which Kryptonian cells process yellow sun radiation. The next step: using that method on himself!

More DP #11 coverage

So I posted a bit about the issue coming out on Wednesday and included this cover image.

Then I posted a link to the Source's preview of this issue. They used this cover image.

Where'd Rita go?!?

Once you read the preview (and/or the issue itself) it'll become clear where Elasti-Woman went.

Finally, being a picky former art director (operative word there being former) I'd like to gripe about the background being so close in tone to the T-Rex side of AVM Man's noggin. Poor planning there.

Come back a little later for my latest hare-brained theory on Thayer Jost. . .

Doom Patrol #11 from the Source

So DC's Source has propped up a six-page (well, ok, five-page with cover) preview for this week's issue.

Here's a little bit to tease you and a link for the rest.

Doom Patrol #11 - this Wednesday!

The eleventh issue of Doom Patrol hits the new comics racks this week.

Here's the solicitation text straight from DC's site:

What kind of people call themselves "The Brotherhood of Evil"? Not this group; not if a certain pan-dimensional business tycoon has anything to say about it. After all, image is everything. But it doesn't matter how they rebrand themselves – the Doom Patrol has found them, and it's not going to be pretty.    DC Universe    32pg.    Color    $2.99 US

Looks like we might get some answers about just what is going on with "Thayer Jost".

For those Doom Patrol fans who are trade-waiters or late joiners, the collected edition of the first few issues of this volume of Doom Patrol also hits the  streets. Titled We Who Are About to Die, this book weighs in at 144 pages and carries a $14.99 cover price. It looks like this new trade collects issue 1-7. I can't guarantee it, but taking into account that the trade is solicited at 144 pages, and the original issues feature twenty pages of Doom Patrol story while Metal Men was running back-up. That would include the Blackest Night two-parter featuring art from Justiniano.

I haven't seen any indication of the "final art" for the cover, but when I do, it'll be here for you. Here's hoping Matthew Clark was able to do something new.

Another book coming out this week that you all might be interested in is Neil Young's Greendale from Vertigo. It's written by Joshua Dysart with art from Cliff Chiang. It's an original hardcover graphic novel, and as such carries a slightly higher price tag, but it's got Cliff Chiang art!

Doomed in August 2010

It's a little late, but here's a quick look at what's coming up from the Doom Patrol in August. 
Written by Keith Giffen
Art and cover by Matthew Clark

Mento’s back, and Rita’s got him in a death grip! When her ex takes things one step too far, he learns a hard lesson about ticking off a 50-foot woman – and we learn some secrets about Rita!

On sale August 4 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US

Great cover from Matthew Clark. He drops in bits of homage to both Diana Rigg and Louise Brooks. More Rita's a good thing in any issue of Doom Patrol as far as I'm concerned. 

DC Universe Legacies #4
Written by Len Wein
Art by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez & Dave Gibbons and Joe Kubert with Scott Kolins
Cover by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez & Dave Gibbons
The DC Universe moves forward and evolves when a new generation of heroes inspired and mentored by the Silver Age’s greatest come together to fight the good fight. Robin, Kid Flash, Speedy, Wonder Girl and Aqualad – the Teen Titans hit the scene! At the same time, heroic humans without powers reunite to remember Sgt. Rock in a story by Joe Kubert!

On sale August 18 • 4 of 10 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US

Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez drawing the DP? Awesomeness awaits. 

Since it is a rather slow Doom month, I'll include Teen Titans as well, since Beast Boy is still hanging around over there.

Written by Felicia D. Henderson
Co-feature written by Rex Ogle
Art by José Luís & Mariah Benes
Cover by Joe Prado
Co-feature art by Ted Naifeh
1:25 “DC Anniversary” Variant Cover by Michael Allred

“The Hunt for Raven” continues! The Titans have found their friend, but will the Wyld be able to let her go? More important, is Raven still their teammate — or has she become something greater than ever?

Plus, The COVEN OF THREE have found their answers, but restoring their world may not be a shared goal. How far will they go for ultimate power?

Retailers please note: This issue will ship with two covers. Please see the Previews Order Form for more information.
