Written by Brian Azzarello, art and cover by Carlos D’Anda.

At war not with just the enemy but with his allies, Deathblow finds himself challenged for the title of “World’s Deadliest Man.” The challenger is less than a man — but more than human! Half machine, half dinosaur — 100 percent Osamasaurus!

I also really, really like this Dustin Nguyen cover for Superman/Batman #40. Yeah, it’s got Batman with his hand over Bekka’s chest, and if she’s Orion’s wife she’s gotta be a take-no-crap kinda gal, but it’s just so… elegant? It’s like a piece of fine art. Not to mention the machinework. Nguyen is really one of the best out. I love this image.

Do you see the Superman logo on that cover? It took me a second, but it’s there. Very cool.

There is a lot to like in the new DC solicits. I might have to dedicate a whole post to it.

There’s not a lot to like on scans_daily, on the other hand. I mean, it’s a suggestive scene. That’s kind of the point. He’s seducing her to the darkside, so to speak. To see it as forced oral, though, is a bit much. I mean, look at his arms. No way does Maximus have a 36 inch penis. But, hey, that white highlight on her cheek must be you know what!

Ugh, I’ve got to stop clicking on links to parts of the internet I hate. Personally, I blame Tejeda.

  1. I don’t know who that Tejada asshat is. Isn’t he the B-More Shortstop?

  2. THAT’S Orion’s wife? Then why is the guy constantly pissed off?

  3. Probably because his wife is trying to cheat on him with George Clooney?

  4. She looks like Tera Patrick. Maybe that guy who almost made Barda a pornstar got to her.

  5. Dustin’s got a way of making me like stuff that I normally wouldn’t like…

  6. I thought that Dustin Nguyen cover was a Mad fold-in. Actually, it does look kind of cool. Batman putting his hands on her, doesn’t seem like something he’d usually do, so he must really like her…
