With a new year on the horizon and the holidays upon us, it’s a good time to take a look back at 2014 to remember and remark upon a few of its key DC Entertainment moments. Some of these moments played out on the comic book page or the screen, others were real-life happenings that shaped what we’ll be reading and seeing over the years ahead. If you’re a DC Comics fan or just an entertainment fan in general, they all mattered. It’s been a great year full of both ups and downs, but these are the big ones. These are our DCComics.com “Ten Moments that Mattered” for 2014.
Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you an exclusive first look at ASTRO CITY #12.
This May, Vertigo's ASTRO CITY gets it’s first-ever guest artist! While other artists contributed to the Visitor's Guide, this is the first time that another artist takes the reins for an entire issue since the series began. That artist is the acclaimed Graham Nolan (BATMAN, TALON).
Kurt Busiek’s long awaited return to ASTRO CITY begins this June. Drawn by Brent Anderson, the ongoing monthly series, published by Vertigo, showcases old heroes and new, as The Ambassador comes to Earth, and an ordinary man is caught up in a cosmic conflict. Featuring the return of favorites like Samaritan and Honor Guard, and the debut of some new sensations!
In the gallery above, check out the interior page by Brent and the variant cover of issue #1 featuring The Ambassador, drawn by Alex Ross, that was revealed today at WonderCon Anaheim.
