Two New Brian Bolland Covers in May 2009

Just saw two new covers by Brian Bolland in the May Previews.  Both of them are recreations.

Superman Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow Bolland

Bolland recreates Curt Swan's classic cover to Action Comics #583, the concluding chapter of "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow".  This will be the cover to a deluxe hardcover of the same name, which will also include two other Moore stories: "For the Man Who Has Everything" and the Superman-Swamp Thing team-up from DC Comics Presents.

I have to admit I am tempted to buy that collection.  DC is trying to get product into the market that will appeal to Moore fans still on a Watchman-movie high.

Last Days of Animal Man

Bolland riffs on his work for this cover to "The Last Days of Animal Man".  This cover is inspired by Animal Man #1, the series that made Grant Morrison famous here in the USA.  I'm excited to learn that Gerry Conway is writing this mini-series!  Conway is one of my favorite Silver Age writers of all time, he stopped working in comics during the 80s and transitioned to TV/Film writing.

I'm excited and scared at the same time.  I really want Conway to knock this one out of the park and get back into comics.  He's inspired a gazillion comics/TV writers, wouldn't it be great if he could reap the rewards that the industry can offer now?  Nuff said.
