DC announced today the new writer of Detective Comics this morning and as I said earlier this week it may surprise some folks — John Layman of Image’s award-winning Chew. While Layman was once an editor at Wildstrom this is his first ongoing for DC Comics
DC also named Jason Fabrok artist. Here’s a look at his cover for issue #13 the team’s first issue.
I’m looking foward to seeing what Layman cooks up. Detective needs some new, innovative blood.
Here’s what is posted on the www.thenew52.com as the cover to Detective Comics #1
Both by Tony Daniel. Is this a variant?
I’ve going to keep saying it until I’ve converted you all. Snyder’s run on ‘Tec to date has been one of the best runs on the book recently and I believe will be a legendary run. And this issue looks to be no exception. I complain about alternating artists on books, but in the case of ‘Tec the alternating of Franco Francavilla and Jock has been all pleasure and no pain.
Here’s a page of Jock’s art from tomorrow’s issue. You can see the rest of the preview at the Source. (But I do have one nit. They ruined Jock’s cover by putting a banner of RR as Hal Jordan. )
