FCAD Cv1DC’s The Source blog put up a preview of the new Joe Casey/Chriscross joint, Final Crisis Aftermath: Dance.

Japan’s Super Young Team wants nothing more than to be seen as heroes in the eyes of their adoring public. Unfortunately, their adventures during FINAL CRISIS have gone unnoticed, and they’ve been reduced to performing at public appearances and on various TV shows literally dancing for their livelihood. But the appearance of a new American teammate and a deadly threat complicates the motives of the team as they try and find what truly makes somebody not just a hero, but a sensational hero. Discover the path to greatness in this exciting 6-issue miniseries!

Even better, Brandon Thomas interviewed Joe Casey about the book and his other work. Casey is off Youngblood, so I’m off that book, too. Plus, he says something I agree with 100% on Obama comics:

JC: No way. That move is so played out. Let the guy be the President now, for chrissakes. I think he’s all through being a cheap marketing ploy, a shortcut to making a quick blast of cash in the Direct Market, don’t you?

  1. I’m actually really looking forward to this, that first page in the preview only sealed the deal.

  2. Obviously Casey has not heard of Barack the Barbarian comics, coming this June from Devil’s Due.

    Catch the fever, baby!

  3. @Dane: well that one at leats makes some kind of sense, since Obama is an admittedly HUGE Conan fan.

  4. Dance! actually kinda sucked. Like, didn’t suck badly enough that you couldn’t give the series the benefit of the doubt that it won’t stay boring, but sucked badly enough that I finished the comic and was like “this sucked.”

  5. I loved Dance, but I guess I’m pre-disposed.
