Flash The Fastest Man Alive #11

Acclaimed artist Tony Daniel (TEEN TITANS) steps in to pencil THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #11 (FEB070274), written by Marc Guggenheim and inked by Art Thibert. Daniel will remain on THE FLASH as the new series penciller.

In this story, called “Full Throttle,” the top Rogues are united by one voice to take down the Flash — but who is it?

“I’m looking forward to working on THE FLASH with Marc Guggenheim, who I think is a very gifted and unique up-and-coming writer destined for big success,” says Daniel. “I’ve always been a huge Bart Allen fan and The Flash is one of the most recognized DC icons. ‘A’ game, here I come!”

Also, DC Comics has added a variant cover by Daniel to issue #11, which retailers will receive in a split of approximately 50/50 with the solicited cover by Ethan Van Sciver.

THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #11 (FEB070274) is solicited in the February Previews (Volume XVII #2) and is scheduled to arrive in stores on April 18. Retailers may adjust their orders on this issue through its Final Order Cutoff date of March 29.

DMZ TPB Vol. 2: Body Of A Journalist

The February 23 issue of Entertainment Weekly features the DMZ VOL. 2: BODY OF A JOURNALIST TP (NOV060292) on the Hot List, calling it “utterly relevant.” Also, SCALPED is reviewed in the March 2 issue, with Tom Russo calling Jason Aaron’s writing “promisingly matched with (R.M.) Guera’s prairie-dusty art,” and giving the series a grade of “B.”

UPCOMING SUPERMAN ISSUES GET NEW CONTENTS

Please note the following contents changes to upcoming issues of SUPERMAN:

SUPERMAN #660 (NOV060188) now will feature a story written by Kurt Busiek, with art by Mike Manley & Bret Blevins and a cover by James Fry & Rodney Ramos. This issue looks at someone who’s popped in and out of SUPERMAN for months. Ever since “Up, Up and Away,” he’s made his presence known. Now, at long last, the story you demanded starring… The Prankster?! This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on March 14.

SUPERMAN #661 (DEC060191) now will feature a story written by Kurt Busiek & Richard Howell, with art by Richard Howell & Eduardo Barreto and a cover by Jesus Merino. In it, an ancient and vicious curse set into motion by the Greek gods hits Metropolis, challenging Superman in a way he’s never been challenged before. It’ll take more than the Man of Steel to save the day this time. Enter: Wonder Woman! But even their combined power may not be enough to halt a curse older than time itself! This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on March 28. Retailers may adjust orders on it through the Final Order Cutoff date of March 8.

SUPERMAN #662 (JAN070269) now will feature the start of the 5-part second half of “Camelot Falls,” previous slated to appear in issue #661. This issue is written by Kurt Busiek with art and cover by Carlos Pacheco & Jesus Merino. This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on April 11. Retailers may adjust orders on it through the Final Order Cutoff date of March 22.

SUPERMAN #663 (MAR070183) now will feature now will feature chapter two of the 5-part second half of “Camelot Falls,” in which the Young Gods of New Genesis pay a visit to Metropolis, while the Prankster is on the loose and the threat of Arion looms over the city. This story was previous slated to appear in issue #662, and is written by Kurt Busiek with art and cover by Carlos Pacheco & Jesus Merino, as solicited in the March Previews (Volume XVII #3). This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 9.

Because of these changes, SUPERMAN #660, 661 and 662 will be made returnable at a later date.
