First Look: Superman & The Authority by Grant Morrison & Mikel Janin
I was about 28 when I wrote my first Superman scene in Animal Man and now I'm 61. It becomes a very interesting prospect to see an older Superman and how he would recalibrate his mission and make it work in a different way but still live up to the promise of that, the champion of the oppressed[...]

Batman #48 cover by Mikel Janin
He wants the Batman, and, from the Batman, he wants an invitation to the coming wedding.

Batman #43 cover by Mikel Janin
Meanwhile, Batman tries to get Harley Quinn to wake up and talk to her sometime partner, Ivy.
