Waiting for Wednesday

Wednesday Comics #01 cover
Wednesday Comics #01 cover

I’m excited with WEDNESDAY COMICS, first is the kind of superhero project I like and the fanboys hate, a reader friendly project that doesn’t requires a degree in advanced DC Chronology to enjoy,  it’s just good stories by good authors, and then there’s the format, it’s huge. Being used to the metric system I didn’t realize how big 14″ x 20″ was until I saw the picture of Bob Wayne with a mock up. It’s just 4 times the size of a regular comic.

We still have to wait more than one week for the comic to hit the comic shops, but there’s plenty of samples spread out, so I decide to colect them all in one place.

Batman from wednesday comics 01 by azzarelo, Risso e MulvilleThis is the final version of Batman, the color of the preview image that was released when the project was annouced were done at DC’s offices, so it could be sent out quickly for press releases, etc. The final colors by Patricia Mulvihill where done later.

This is a VERY rough color guide, for the first page or Wonder Women by Ben Caldwell. this is a strip with 50 panels per page, it’s one of the stories that I’m more interested to see  in print. Caldwell has been posting a lot of preleminary work in his blog and the work is gorgeous.

  • THE DEMON AND CATWOMAN, written by Walter Simonson (Thor, MANHUNTER) with Art by famed DC cover artist Brian Stelfreeze
  • DEADMAN, written by Dave Bullock and Vinton Heuck, Art by Dave Bullock
