DC Unveils First Images Of Their 'Second Wave' Books

Get a peek at concept and interior art from upcoming titles like BATMAN, INC., WORLD'S FINEST, EARTH 2, and more.

As we near the release date of DC's upcoming 'Second Wave' titles, the more we see of the books. DC Comics recently gave readers a peek at some of the concept art and several interior pages to books like WORLD'S FINEST, EARTH 2, THE RAVAGERS, BATMAN, INC. and many more.

The publisher will be releasing a total of eight new books starting in May. Below are some images from the upcoming books from creators like Nicola Scott (EARTH 2), Chris Burnham (BATMAN, INC.), George Perez (WORLD'S FINEST), and many more. The photos were taken of the binder images where DC keeps assets of all of their upcoming projects.

But wait, that's not all. The folks at CNET recently visited the DC offices and have posted images of their trip, giving fans a clearer picture of the inner workings of the comic book publisher. Over at Buzzfeed we got a look at some concept art for their upcoming BEFORE WATCHMEN books.

Looks interesting.

The art in Earth 2 looks fantastic. I wish we could have gotten that kind of quality on the regular Justice League.

Posted by Icarusflies

Some of these definitely look better than others...

And by that I mean all of these with the exception of Ravagers looks awesome.

Ravagers = Awesome.

Earth 2 too.

Man, the Earth 2 art is so amazing. Beautiful stuff.

Posted by Psycorvus

Loving the look for Ravagers. Such a 90's feel! Earth 2 stuff looks more interesting than the current JLA as well...

While i miss some of the cancelled wave one books, i like more than half of these already.

GI Combat just made me subconsciously cream my jorts with that gorgeous Ariel Olivetti art. Earth-2, Batman, Inc., and Dial H are also amazing!

Posted by Bestostero

I rather abhor her new costume, but that's just me.

The artwork on G.I. Combat and Dial H looks magnificent. Kudos to Ariel Olivetti and Mateus Santolouco !

The Warblade concept looks interesting and i like that it is by Jim Lee

G.I Combat and Dial H look amazing! They all do look good, but those two really stand out here, atleast to me.

Yeah cuz he was the one that created Warblade in the first place, anyway where's Zealot or didn't she cross over to the new universe?

Posted by PrinceIMC

Woot that's a much better version of the updated Power Girl costume. I still prefer the old one but this is a better representation than the first preview pics we got.

I am excited for World's Finest, Earth 2, and Ravagers

Posted by johnny_spam

Batman Inc is a must buy for me Dial H looks great as well I may pick up Earth 2 later. All these books except Ravagers look good.

Posted by Mokey

These all look awesome!

Looking forward to Earth-2 and Batman Inc.

Posted by longbowhunter

I love the Kevin McGuire stuff, but I'm not picking up World's Finest. Batman Inc. and Dial H for sure.

Posted by crazed_h3ro

Sweet mother of all that is Holy, powergirl and Warblade redesign looks amazing! Warblade was always one of my favorite wild cards, next to Ripclaw and, wolverine. Powergirl loos just a bit off, but yet right on her, there may be some changes later, but I am feeling this look on her.

Posted by Alch21

Going to get Dial H and Ravengers

Posted by RedOwl_1

Batman Inc. art looks AMAZING but I still don't knowing where it will be placed: Pre or Post - Flashpoint?

Posted by pspin

Definitly getting 1 issue of World's Finest, Earth 2 and Ravagers. I wish I could afford all three, they look really good

Posted by jsphsmth

Hard to be excited about Batman Inc, but the rest look amazing.

Love exploring the multiverse with Earth-2 and Worlds' Finest.

Dial H looks like it will be a great addition to the other Dark titles.

Can't wait to see the further integration of Wildstorm in The Ravagers.

Great to see the return of DC's classic war franchises in GI Combat.

Posted by jsphsmth

@Planewalker: Zealot was mentioned in the July Deathstroke solicit.

Posted by Fuchsia_Nightingale

Is the top stuff GI combat ?....the duh herd around the

I Love seeing the art in the three ringed binder, feels like its all rough and concepts and stuff.

I am looking forward to this stuff, easpecially Earth 2 and Worlds Finest by Kevin Maguire and George Perez. Looks great.

So if thats Warblade, then that other concept drawing of the white alien moth guy with faces in his arms might be part of the those designs too. Maybe someone from Wildcats too.

Posted by ME24601

I'm really looking forward to Batman Inc.

Posted by cagedleo730

@ArtisticNeedham: The white alien moth guy is Graves and he will be appearing in Justice League #9 for the "Villain's Journey" arc. That's the same guy who wrote the JLA book at the end of issue 6.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Man the Earth 2 and World's Finest stuff looks awesome and it only makes me anticipate it more since that's all what I'm getting next month! The other stuff looks awesome as well!

Posted by doordoor123

"and many more"? You can't name the books?

Posted by Migz13

Wow... those earth two drawings ROCK!!! 
I can see detail EVERYWHERE!!!!

Posted by CrackedVersion00

Earth-2 is interesting, Definitely will get Batman Incorporated, Not picking up World's Finest...

Posted by sethysquare
All looks good.
Posted by Anniki

Yep, all looks good... But definitely can't wait for Earth 2.

Posted by Kiltro95

Some characters are very intriguing I find myself curious about Abyss, Boy Chimney and Warblade they all seem to have a very interesting feel to them can't wait to pick them up whether in their own series or not.

Posted by pikahyper

Unknown Soldier woot !!!!

Dang it DC stop giving George Perez work >_<

Posted by B'Town

I'm adding Worlds Finest to my pull list - I'm just plain curious and hoping it will be fun.

I'll also be pulling Ravagers hoping it will help fill that place in my comic loving heart left by the previous Teen Titans.
