DC Comics Iconic Heroes Get A Unique Cover

In January 2011, DC Comics Publishing will be treating some of its most iconic characters with a new cover design layout. Icon heroes like Batman, Superman, Hal Jordan and Flash will be getting their signature emblem placed on the cover of comics in January 2011. But that’s not all. DC will also be releasing a series of one-shot stories that spotlight key players in the DCU.

 

STARMAN/CONGORILLA #1 Written by James Robinson, Artwork by Brett booth, and Cover by Gene Ha.

In this tie-in to the “JLA Omega” storyline, the new blue and gold team of Congorilla and Mikaal Tomas work to unlock the secrets behind the toxic Omega Man’s dark energy, which encases Washington D.C. To do this they must embark on a quest to find the Fountain of Youth, encountering diverse heroes from the DCU along the way including Animal Man, Sirocco and a certain wonder dog named Rex. And all the while, Mikaal and Congorilla must outrun and outwit a cadre of terrorist assassins from Gorilla City. This is a breakneck chase through the DCU, but with a serious end-goal – saving the lives of their fellow members of the JLA!
