Monthly Weekly World News: The Covers

When WEEKLY WORLD NEWS #1 hits in January, one of the covers will emulate the look of the newspaper itself. Which allowed me to be the reporter/headline writer and Alan Robinson to be my "photographer," as you can see in both the full-color and newsprint variant versions:




For the variant cover, we wanted to pay tribute to the great Alex Ross, so Joe Corroney did just that with this cover (note: Bat Boy does not appear in spandex in the actual comic):


And the original Alex Ross image:

I love the Alex Ross style cover! hahaha!

I'm all about buying this comic. Batboy is an American treasure.

I remember reading the Weekly World News whenever I visited my grandparents as a teen. I'd end up reading a dozen or so in a row, loved them, love Bat Boy :)

This has likely been mentioned and I have overlooked it but is this an ongoing series?

When is ordering available on the IDW website?

It's a 4-issue miniseries starting in January, so available to order in the November issue of Previews.

So, miniseries for now, but if it works and sells well, I could write this book monthly for the next 40 years and be happy...

A forest in Nitrify suburb of in Athens, Greece caught fire all of a sudden. The wildfire went on the rampage burning lots of homes and thousands of acres of forest to ashes. The fire is on the verge of spreading to thickly populated areas. The wind blowing continuously was the main reason for the rampant spreading of the fire. Thousands of people are continually leaving the danger prone place to safer accommodations. You can imagine the extent of severity of the mishap from the fact that Government is sending helicopters to drop water to put out the fire. This fire accident was one among the worst one Greece has ever faced.
