Walt Simonson Original Graphic Novel From DC Comics – The Judas Coin

Bleeding Cool posted a little snippet of this back in August

But today, DC Comics went all official. By announcing that this September, they will publish an original graphic novel by Walt Simonson set in the DC Universe. All the DC Universe.

"The cover for THE JUDAS COIN was designed and drawn with inspiration provided in part by movie posters from the '60s and '70s. In particular, I was thinking of the posters of Bob Peak, who did such beautiful work back then with montage. Peak was a master at creating a strong central image and surrounding it with smaller, often fairly loose images derived from various scenes in the movie. I make no claims to Peak's draftsmanship, but for a work like THE JUDAS COIN, comprised as it is of six separate but related stories, I wanted a cover that would provide both a strong visual image at its core, and a series of small drawings that would reflect the structure of the book's interior. Batman and Two-Face, eternal enemies, provided a good focal point. The vignettes around them echo the individual stories within the book."

But it looks like one of the stories in The Judas Coin may revolve around DC pirate Captain Fear.
