Can’t wait for tomorrow’s Free Comic Book Day to get a look at what DC Comics has to offer? Luckily, they passed us a look at the last, gigantic gatefold page of their DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 FCBD Edition by legendary artist Jim Lee, which you can check out above!
Too small for your old eyes? Don’t worry, we’ve broken it into some smaller chunks for you to look at, but first the official info on all of DC’s FCBD offerings:
The DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 FCBD Edition will include:
• A cover by legendary artists Jim Lee, who also illustrated five interior pages – including a gorgeous, four-page gatefold.
An all-new story written by New York Times bestselling author Geoff Johns, featuring art by Jim Lee, as well as five interior pages including a four-page JUSTICE LEAGUE gatefold
• A new story written by New York Times bestselling author Geoff Johns and illustrated by Jim Lee, Ivan Reis, Gene Ha and Kenneth Rocafort.
• Exclusive preview material from DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 “Second Wave” titles, including BATMAN INCORPORATED, DIAL H, EARTH 2, G.I. COMBAT, THE RAVAGERS and WORLDS’ FINEST.
Free Comic Book Day will also include:
• Vertigo’s free preview of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO graphic novel
.• A custom-designed FCBD T-shirt featuring art by Jim Lee. For any fans of DC Comics or DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, this is an event that is not to be missed
...Which is great and all, but what the heck is Trinity War, as teased in these pages? You can scrutinize the art for yourself, but a few important items of note:
- It’s tough to tell, but it really looks like everyone is fighting each other... Is this Justice League versus Justice League International? Or something more?
- What’s that hunk of gold rock doing on Batman’s belt? That’s not gold kryptonite, is it?
- Which Green Lantern is it that Superman is bashing to smithereens? Hal doesn’t appear anywhere, but given the outfit, that might be Guy, right? But who knews?
- Wait: is that Shazam, or Black Adam getting possessed by Deadman?
- And of course, there’s Trinity War. That could refer to Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman, it could refer to someone else (Pandora, maybe?), and it could mean DC’s Trinity going to war with everyone... Or going to war with themselves. DC Civil War, anyone?
Whatever all this means, we should have a little bit of a better idea tomorrow, and will certainly know more by next year - if not San Diego Comic-Con. Stay tuned, and here's the full art for your own analysis:
