BATMAN #619 COVERS

DC Comics on Friday unveiled the three covers to Batman #619, the final story in the "Hush" story arc by Jeph Loeb, Jim Lee and Scott Williams.

Batman #619 ships on Sept. 24 with two triple-gatefold covers by Lee and Williams. The first showcases Batmans allies in the fight against crime, while the second spotlights Batman's many foes.

All orders on this edition will be filled with covers featuring Batman allies (50 percent) and Batman villains (50 percent).

The cover to the Batman #619 Standard Edition uses a segment of the Batman allies gatefold cover. The Standard Edition is distinguished by its coloring, which differs dramatically from the coloring on the gatefold version.

"Given the fan response and the success of the story, we felt that we needed to do something really big to close it out," Lee said. "I thought it would be really cool to create two covers - one for the heroes and one for the villains. The only way to squeeze them all on there without just doing headshots was to create these gatefolds. I love the fact when you open the cover you get to see more of the images unfold like a mystery. It's a way to thank the fans, by putting out the final issue with these fantastic covers for not a penny more than a normal issue!"

IDW'S GRUMPY MONSTERS

Grumpy Old Monsters is a four-issue mini-series from IDW Publishing that launches in November.

The all-ages tale of humor, friendship and adventure is written by novelists Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, with animation-style art by Paco Cavero and Guillermo Mendoza.

Here's how IDW describes the book:

"When humans grow old, they call it the 'Twilight Years.'ĘBut when classic monsters like Dracula, Wolf-man, the Mummy, and Frankenstein's monster grow old they call it the 'Twilight Zone Years.'

"With no more villages to wreck, pyramids to bust out of, or victims to haunt, the monsters had no choice but to retire to the old monsters' home. Life seemed easy enough, room and board provided and lots of time to rest in peace. What more could a monster want?

"How about one last adventure?

"When land developers threaten to raze Castle Frankenstein, the classic monsters decide to bust out of the rest home to right one last wrong for all monsterdom!"

"We have always loved the old monsters," said Anderson, "and we felt it would be a wonderful, fun adventure to turn them into a sort of scary 'Over the Hill Gang.'ĘThere's humor in this series for everybody, from kids to grownups.'

The first issue will cost $3.99.
