    NEW SALVATION RUN #1 VARIANT COVER UNVEILED

    They are the two most dangerous criminal masterminds in the world: Lex Luthor and the Joker. And, along with the rest of the world's nastiest super villains, they have just been exiled by the government to the remote planet known as "Salvation." Will these villains, freed from the constraints of a society that fears and scorns them, embrace this opportunity to reform? Will they begin a new era of redemption? Or will these legendary evils go for each other’s throats, while the fate of two worlds hangs in the balance?

    Written by acclaimed writer Bill Willingham (DAY OF VENGEANCE, FABLES) and featuring the art of Sean Chen and Walden Wong, SALVATION RUN throws together the nastiest and most frightening elements of the DC Universe to create an action-heavy thriller sure to pull in fans from every corner of the DC Nation

    But if that wasn’t enough, take a closer look at the battle raging on the distant planet with a sneak peek at an all-new variant cover to SALVATION RUN #1, by artist Joe Corroney (Star Wars).

    This new variant cover replaces the previously announced variant cover.

    SALVATION RUN #1 Standard Edition (SEP070153) is on Final Order Cutoff on Thursday, October 25. As a reminder, retailers may order one copy of the Variant Edition (SEP070154), featuring a cover by Joe Corroney, for every ten copies of the Standard Edition ordered.

    LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW PRAISES SENTENCES

    SENTENCES has been reviewed by The Los Angeles Times Book Review, calling it “an urban folk tale, like Claude Brown's Manchild in the Promised Land, with hints of Jack Kerouac's On the Road” and saying “No matter what color you are, you know these people, the bad boys with souls who won't settle for less. If you're a woman, you've probably had a crush on one. If you're a man you've probably wanted to be one. If you were one of them, and you're reading this, you either found redemption or made it big. And a lot of your friends are dead.”

    In addition, SENTENCES writer Percy Carey is being interviewed by ABC World News Tonight for a webcast later this month.
