    NEW CONTENTS FOR TINY TITANS #12 TIE INTO "FACES OF EVIL"

    DC Comics announces new contents for TINY TITANS #12 (NOV080196), making it a part of the DC Universe's "Faces of Evil" month.

    In this special "Faces of Mischief" issue, see what happens in the average day of the faculty of Sidekick Elementary as we follow the antics of Principal Slade and Trigon. The Tiny Titans have their own ideas of what goes on in the Teacher's Lounge - but how close are they to the truth?

    "When I heard about 'Faces of Evil,' I knew Trigon had a face that needed to be shared with the world," says writer/artist Art Baltzar.

    And, adds writer Franco, "Trigon is such a fatherly figure, why wouldn't you want his face on a cover? It's not like he's evil or something."

    The story and cover originally solicited for this issue will now appear in TINY TITANS #13. TINY TITANS #12 is solicited in the November Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on January 21.

    Because of this change, this issue will be made returnable at a later date.

    ARTIST FRANK QUITELY CREATES VARIANT COVER FOR WONDER WOMAN #27

    With the "Rise of the Olympian" storyline continuing in WONDER WOMEN #27, Eisner Award winning artist Frank Quitely (ALL STAR SUPERMAN) has created a variant cover for this issue.

    Retailers may order one copy of the WONDER WOMAN #27 Variant Edition (OCT088013) featuring a cover by Frank Quitely for every ten copies of WONDER WOMAN #27 (OCT080157) ordered.

    In this issue, written by Gail Simone and illustrated by Aaron Lopresti and Matt Ryan, Genocide remains on a murderous rampage while Wonder Woman has to deal with the ramifications, both mental and physical, of failing to stop this threat. Meanwhile, the Amazons make their long-awaited return to a home they barely recognize, and a god makes a promise to Athena that will change the landscape of the DC Universe.

    WONDER WOMAN #27 is solicited in the October Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on December 24. This issue has a Final Order Cutoff date of November 25.
