    DC COMICS REVEALS NEW CONTENTS FOR BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #2

    Following on the recent changes in BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #1, DC Comics announces updated contents for the second issue of this new series.

    In issue #2, Batman and his Outsiders — Catwoman, Metamorpho, Katana, Martian Manhunter, Grace and Thunder — investigate the appearance of a strange Omac-like entity at Jardine Tower in Central City. And to further complicate things, Batman’s newest recruit makes her dramatic entrance at the end of the issue — but the Outsiders aren’t too sure they want her on their team!

    Written by Chuck Dixon, with art by Carlos Rodriguez and Bit and a cover by Doug Braithwaite, BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #2 (SEP070151) is on Final Order Cutoff on November 8 and is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 28.

    NEAL ADAMS CREATES VARIANT COVER FOR ALL STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN, THE BOY WONDER #8

    Legendary Dark Knight artist Neal Adams has returned to one of his keystone characters by creating an amazing new variant cover for ALL STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN, THE BOY WONDER #8.

    Retailers may order one copy of this cover ALL STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN, THE BOY WONDER #8 Variant Edition (SEP070173) for every 10 copies of the Standard Edition (SEP070172) ordered. Please note that Adams’ variant cover replaces the solicited Frank Miller variant cover.

    ALL STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN, THE BOY WONDER #8 is on Final Order Cutoff on November 8, and is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 28.

    ANDY KUBERT CREATES COVER FOR GREEN LANTERN CORPS #18

    GREEN LANTERN CORPS #18 (SEP070163), Part 10 of the “Sinestro Corps War” storyline, will now feature a cover by Andy Kubert, replacing the solicited cover by Pat Gleason & Prentis Rollins.

    In this issue, the Guardians of the Universe have chosen a new Ion, and his first mission is to confront one of the deadliest member of the Sinestro Corps...the newly christened Superman Prime!

    This issue is written by Peter Tomasi, with art by Jamal Igle and Patrick Gleason and inks by Jerry Ordway and Prentis Rollins. Scheduled to arrive in stores on November 28, it is on Final Order Cutoff on November 8.

    AQUAMAN CO-CREATOR PAUL NORRIS DIES AT AGE 93

    Artist Paul Norris, best known as the co-creator of Aquaman, has died at age 93.

    “Paul Norris was one of the quiet, dedicated artists who sustained comics through the decades,” says Paul Levitz, DC Comics President & Publisher. “His most important contribution to DC was long before I was born, but it was my pleasure to reconnect him to DC and Aquaman.”

    Born in 1914, Norris worked as a cartoonist for the Dayton Daily News before beginning his career in comic books in 1940, when he started freelancing for Prize Publications on features including Yank and Doodle and Futureman. Norris moved to DC Comics in 1941, where he introduced Aquaman in MORE FUN COMICS #73. After his stay on the Aquaman feature ended, he moved on to other features including The Sandman and Johnny Quick.

    After serving in the Army, Norris joined King Features, where he contributed to comic strips including Flash Gordon, Secret Agent X-9 and Jungle Jim. He took over writing and drawing the Brick Bradford strip in 1952 and continued drawing it through 1987, establishing a reputation for never missing a deadline. In the 1960s and 70s, Norris also drew comics for Western Publishing including Tarzan of the Apes and Magnus, Robot Fighter.
