    ARTIST AARON LOPRESTI CREATES VARIANT COVER FOR WONDER WOMAN #26

    Artist Aaron Lopresti returns to WONDER WOMAN with November's issue #26, the start of the "Rise of the Olympian storyline, written by Gail Simone. To mark the start of this monumental story, Lopresti has created a variant cover for the issue.

    Retailers may order one copy of the WONDER WOMAN #26 Variant Edition (AUG088198) for every ten copies of WONDER WOMAN #26 (SEP080164) ordered.

    Following months of speculation over a new, male Wonder Woman and his fellow Manazons, WONDER WOMAN #26 puts the rumors to rest. In this issue, learn what horrific new threat Special Agent Diana Prince is unknowingly leading her team of agents against. And, at long last, the fate of the Amazons is revealed.

    WONDER WOMAN #26 is solicited in the September Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 26.

    NEW EDITIONS OF TRANSMETROPOLITAN TPS OFFERS NEW LOOK AT CLASSIC SERIES

    Five titles from Vertigo's acclaimed TRANSMETROPOLITAN series will be reconfigured starting in March, 2009, with a new edition of volume one in the series, BACK ON THE STREET.

    The TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 1: BACK ON THE STREET NEW EDITION TP now will include issues #1-6 of the original series, which were previously available in volumes 1 and 2 of the collected editions. It will be advance-solicited in the December Previews to arrive in stores in March.

    Following that, the TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 2: LUST FOR LIFE NEW EDITION TP now will include issue #7-12 of the original series; this title previously collected issues #4-12. It is scheduled to arrive in stores in May.

    The TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 3: YEAR OF THE BASTARD NEW EDITION TP now will include issues #13-18 of the series; this title previously collected these issues as well as a story from VERTIGO WINTER'S EDGE #2. It is scheduled to arrive in stores in August.

    The TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 4: THE NEW SCUM NEW EDITION TP now will include issues #19-24 of the series, as well as the story from VERTIGO WINTER'S EDGE #3 and the addition of the story from VERTIGO WINTER'S EDGE #2. In-store date for VOL. 4 will be announced later.

    The TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 10: ONE MORE TIME NEW EDITION TP now will include issues #55-60 of the series, as well as the Specials TRANSMETROPOLITAN: I HATE IT HERE and TRANSMETROPOLITAN: FILTH OF THE CITY. The specials were previously available in TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 0: TALES OF HUMAN WASTE; This volume will no longer be available once current stock is gone. In-store date for VOL. 10 will be announced later.

    These volumes are being reconfigured due to retailer requests for a more consistent page count in the series' early volumes.
