DC Comics announces 'THE RAY' miniseries
With the excitement and critical acclaim building for its line-wide relaunch ("the New 52"), DC Comics has just greenlit The Ray, a four-issue miniseries written by the co-writing team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray (the double-threat behind Jonah Hex, Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters, and the upcoming All-Star Western), with art by Jamal Igle (Supergirl).
With its first issue due out on December 14th, the series will center on Lucien Gates, a new character who will become the fourth to wear the mantle of the Ray. Lucien’s life is forever changed when a mysterious beam of energy transforms him into a glowing gladiator, a transformation with the good timing to occur as his city finds itself under siege by giant monsters. Unfortunately for Lucien, his girlfriend is not delighted at the prospect of her boyfriend's new-found light powers and superheroic calling!
Stay tuned for more developments!
