Here's the cover for DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES #5, fully colored. The solicitations that DC sent incorrectly listed Scott Koblish as the inker of this cover, but, although Scott is inking the interiors (magnificently, I might add) the cover inks are all mine.

    Just sent in the cover for LEGACIES #5. While I can't post it here yet, here's a little detail I put in as a token of affection to some friends. It's blown up considerably here and will likely not be as legible in the finished version, but I thought at least three people may get a kick out of it.

    Since I'm not registered with Newsarama, I figured I'd make a correction here regarding the interview with Len Wein and the issues of the LEGACIES book I'm drawing. I'm assuming that the interview was done at least a couple of days ago and that Len couldn't (and perhaps still doesn't) know that the scheduled inker on my issues is Scott Koblish, not Jerry Ordway. Most will recall that Scott inked me on a couple issues of BRAVE AND THE BOLD and, most significantly, FINAL CRISIS: LEGION OF 3 WORLDS. I have nothing but incredible respect and admiration for Jerry Ordway, but I was asked by editor Mike Carlin who I wanted to ink me and Scott was the name I proposed due to the exceptional work he did on FC:LO3W and no mention was made of Jerry. However, if Jerry Ordway is ever willing and available to ink me again on some future project, I'd be an outright idiot not to take advantage of it. Just felt I should set the record straight.

    Take care,

    LEN WEIN Retells 75 Years of DCU History in LEGACIES

    Len Wein and some of the best artists in the industry are telling the vast 75-year history of the DCU in DC Universe: Legacies, the 10-issue mini-series that starts this week.


    Issue #5:

    Lead In: Scott Kolins.

    Main Story: George Perez (pencils) and Jerry Ordway* (inks).

    Co-Feature: Walt Simonson.

    "The back-up story that Walt is drawing is about the science fiction characters like Adam Strange, Space Ranger and Captain Comet," Wein said.

    Issue #6:

    Lead In: Scott Kolins.

    Main Story: George Perez (pencils) and Jerry Ordway* (inks).

    Co-Feature: "We've only got the artists for the back-ups through Issue #5 so far," Wein said.

    "To give you an idea of the timeline we're following, right now, I'm working on Issue #6, and it pretty much ends about 5 minutes before Maxwell Lord puts a bullet through Ted Kord's head," Wein said.

    * Update May 19, 2010 1:48 AM: Scott Koblish will be inking Legacies.  Read statement from George Perez here.

    WC10: DC Nation Panel
    by Lauren Davis , Guest Contributor  Fri, April 2nd, 2010 at 8:55PM (PDT)


    When one fan told the panelists that readers could use a new "History of the DC Universe," DiDio pointed to the upcoming “DC Legacies” series, written by Len Wein, which will focus on five generations of superheroes, starting from comics’ earliest masked heroes. DiDio also revealed the full artist slate for “DC Legacies:” Andy and Joe Kubert for the first book (comprising issues #1-2), Jose Luis Garcia Lopez and Dave Gibbons for the second (#3-4), George Perez for the third, Dan Jurgens and Jerry Ordway for the fourth, and Rags Morales for the fifth and final book.

    WHO'S WHO #1 (May 2010)
    DC Nation: So just exactly who is who?
    January 6, 2010

    You know, ever since I started at DC Comics (nearly eight years ago for those of you keeping track), I've been asked when are we going to do a new HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE and a new WHO'S WHO? Over the years I've given varying responses to these questions (everything from "waiting to find the right talent" to "not ready to start revising history'); after all, the creative energy that Marv Wolfman and George Perez put into the original HISTORY was hard to top, and the amount of man hours it took to build a new WHO'S WHO was a little daunting. And truth be told, if we ever planned to take on these two monumental projects again, we wanted to make sure we rolled them out at a time we felt that the universe was no longer in flux and the history, as built, and the Who's Who entries would stay relevant for as long as the original projects (some of the editors, myself included, can be seen still using the original Who's Who as a reference guide). The last thing we'd want to do is to build these books and have them outdated before their final issues hit the shelves. Well, given the events of BLACKEST NIGHT (you didn't really think I'd give away the ending, did you?), and the fact we are entering into DC Comics' 75th anniversary, I am very happy to announce that the time is now.

    A new WHO's WHO is currently in production with the first issue hitting the stores in May. Like the original series, this is a massive undertaking: 18 issues, over 800 entries and featuring, literally, a thousand characters. Former DC Editor Bob Greenberger has returned to the fold (Bob worked on the original Who's Who as well) and is taking on the incredible task of building this series so that it has the same lasting impact of the first one. As for the history of the DC Universe, well, we are coming at that a little differently. Rather than a prose piece, master storyteller Len Wein has crafted a detailed and weaving story of two families whose lives have been impacted by five generations of super-heroes. DC LEGACIES tells the tale of the history of the DC Universe as experienced by the characters who live in it. Five generations, ten issues and fifteen of comics' greatest artists will be telling a tale for the ages. And while you will be hearing more about this project as it gets closer, this Nation page just gives you a sample of the first-issue art of the incomparable team of Andy and Joe Kubert as they tackle the first generation and the age of the Mystery Men.

    A little special comic book goodness to kick off 2010. Happy New Year, Nation!

    To be continued…

    WHO'S WHO #1 (2010)
    DC confirms new Who's Who and History of the DC Universe
    Posted on December 10, 2009 - 12:55 PM by Kevin Melrose

    DC Comics has confirmed that, in conjunction with the just-announced Legacies miniseries, it will release new editions of History of the DC Universe and an all-new 12-issue Who's Who in the DC Universe.


    History of the DC Universe was a two-issue series by Marv Wolfman and George Perez released in 1986 in the wake of Crisis on Infinite Earths to establish what was canon now that there was no multiverse.

    No creators have been announced for the new editions.
