DC is teasing out more details about its Free Comic Book Day offering, with a post on official blog The Source promising preview material from the second wave of ongoing New 52 titles (Batman Incorporated, Dial H, Earth 2, GI Combat, The Ravagers and Worlds’ Finest), “art by legendary illustrator Jim Lee and other top talents” – which sounds, to me, suspiciously like it’ll be either sketchbook material, pages from already released comics or something we’ve already seen in some form – and a brand new story by Geoff Johns, although no artist is listed for that story yet.
The post promises “more surprises to come” about the free book, which’ll make its debut May 5. Will we see more new titles announced between now and then to be previewed in the book? Will the identity of the artist for the new Johns story turn out to be a surprise in and of itself (Any Marvel exclusive artists rumored to be making the jump between publishers anytime soon, I wonder…)? Batteries to power. Speculation Engines to speed.
