Man, you beat me to it. From bleedingcool: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2011/09/...ed-the-twelve/

Apparently Westin sent that image. For avid comic readers, that's hilarious.

The Twelve, one of the most critically-acclaimed comic series in years, makes its dramatic return this January, taking comic shops everywhere by storm once more! Superstar creators J Michael Straczynski and Chris Weston kick the new year off in style as the two conclude their pulse-pounding story of World War IIs super heroes awakened in the modern day and struggle to adapt. Except they’ll have to work fast as a threat hurdles their way that could destroy them all!

Cool Preview, interviews

A full preview for issue 10 has hit the web, courtesy of CBR.

Also two interviews have appeared, right on cue

Looking great for the big finish!

I missed it when I read the preview but I had to laugh last night when I read issue #10. Check out the movie marquee on page 5.

Indeed. Quite apart from the in-jokes it was a neat foreshadowing of the "id monster" theme they were going for.

I'll withhold judgement as to whether this makes sense until we get a proper dissection of DM and his late creator's psyches, not just some half-assed comments about repressed puritanism. Why build a self-aware machine which at the same time is (somehow) unaware of its own nature? What sort of moral example is that supposed to be, anyway, what it lacks even the potential for "sin"? Oh, and how stupid would Blue Blade have to be to try blackmailing someone who'd already slaughtered a whole bar full of people to protect the same secret?

Anyway, the art was gorgeous as usual. Definitely worth owning in hardcover once it's complete.
