Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne Deluxe Hardcover Collection

DC Comics officially solicited the Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne Deluxe Hardcover Edition today. This slightly over-sized book will collect all six issues of the mini-series and will include previously unseen sketches and design artwork. I sent the editors a bunch of prelims and preparatory drawings and I'm curious to see what they picked. This collection goes on sale Feb. 2, 2011. I've posted the cover image above.

In other news, Wildstorm released a color image of my 3rd cover for the End of Nations video game tie-in series and you can see that below. That particular book goes on sale December 29.

Peter Hogan Interview
Tom Strong and the Robots of Doom #5 will be published in a few weeks, but in the meantime, here are a few items of interest to Tom Strong fans:

First, click
HERE to read a great interview with Robots of Doom writer Peter Hogan. Peter's entire career is covered, including his time in publishing, music journalism and comics. It's a fun and informative read and was full of surprises for me (such as Peter's association with various people and bands I've followed for years).

Second, see below for a sneak preview of some art from Robots of Doom #5. This is the big battle issue, with Tom
Strong, Dr. Permafrost and the lava people (the Salamanders) vs. the maniacal Albrecht and his army of Dero robots. Lots of cool imagery in this one, beginning with the splash page below, reproduced from the pencil art.

...and third, since I announced it to a crowd at the Toronto Fan Expo in a panel overseen by DC Comics honcho Dan Didio (urged to do so by Dan, actually), I suppose it's okay for me to reveal here that Peter and I have begun work on a new Tom Strong mini-series entitled Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril. Since we're just starting, I have no info yet on when it will be released.
