Check out this gorgeous splash page by brilliant Italian artist Fabrizio Fiorentino from INK #1.
Of course, I don't need to tell you that FINAL CRISIS AFTERMATH:INK #1 hits stands next week on May 27th. Naw... you already knew that. But just in case you needed something more to make you run out and buy the book the day it comes out (next Wednesday at your local comics dealer, HINT... HINT...), let Fabrizio's gorgeous art serve as a reminder.
INK follows the adventures of Mark Richards aka THE TATTOOED MAN. Formerly a super-villain, Mark was recently made an honorary member of the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA for his courage during the recent FINAL CRISIS storyline and the battle against Darkseid and his Anti-Life Justifiers. Now, he's trying on the mantle of "hero" for a change, and boy, is it different. It's fun. Hard. Weird. Awesome. Difficult. Gratifying. Exasperating. Inspiring. A pain in the butt. And of course... COOL!
As for the what actually happens next? You'll have to check it out. INK is a six-issue miniseries, and trust me... you won't believe what's in store for Mark and the residents of Liberty Hill, the community he's sworn to protect.
Needless to say, being a superhero isn't as easy as it seems...
