As the year comes to end, it's time to look ahead to 2012. And what's in store for LA's newest superhero in the New Year? Find out now by checking out my interview with MISFITS OF SCIENCE. In it, I discuss why Mister Terrific needed Brainstorm to fulfill his evil destiny, and also hint at what's up with The Kryl and Karen Starr in the DCnU.

And who says the media doesn't have great taste?
MISTER TERRIFIC #4... available now in print AND digital form from DC COMICS.
NEXT MONTH: The cosmic adventure continues when Mister Terrific encounters the mysterious being known as "HARMONY," an entity with the power to save the universe. Or destroy it!
(How's THAT for hyperbole?!)

A very different MISTER TERRIFIC 2-part adventure begins today.
Not only does our hero meet the villainous alien race known as THE KRYL, he also finds himself thrown into outer space. (Actually, it's the ninth dimension...) Yes, after an initial 3-part story set primarily in his home base of Los Angeles, Mister Terrific goes COSMIC. Cool, eh? Of course, you might be asking yourself, "Uh... why leave the cozy confines of the City of Angels to set a story in dimensional space?"
Good question, friends.
The answer is... JACK KIRBY. The King's cosmically-inspired artwork in books like FANTASTIC FOUR (Galactus, anyone? Or the Silver Surfer?) just blew me away as a kid. Same goes for THE ETERNALS and later, KAMANDI. (Okay, Kamandi's not cosmic, but it is ridiculously AWESOME.) By setting Mister Terrific's HQ in the ninth dimension, I immediately knew we'd have opportunities to tell some far-out stories. Issus #4's story, "Exposed," is the first. In it, you'll get aliens galore, action, incredible interstellar artwork from the brilliant GIANLUCA GUGLIOTTA, and maybe even get a few clues of things to come in our hero's future.
So pick up a copy today and get "exposed" to a different kind of superhero!

Some cover, eh? That's MISTER TERRIFIC fighting an alien menace, courtesy of brilliant cover artist J.G. JONES. And yes, as this groovy cover implies, this is the issue where Mister Terrific finally goes COSMIC. THE KRYL--the race of aliens introduced at the end of last issue--finally make their full presence known. And it's not exactly a cake walk for our hero! This 2-part space tale, which features our hero dealing with the emotional fallout of almost killing the villainous BRAINSTORM last issue (#3), features incredibly kickass artwork by my co-conspirator in Terrific-crimes, GIANLUCA GUGLIOTTA. But don't take my word for it. Just look at the gorgeous two-page spread below:
What's that? You want more? How about an exclusive preview of issue 4's FIRST SIX PAGES? Yup. They're available to check out right now at TOR.COM!
Not only will you be treated to more of Gianluca's excellent work, but also to the terrific contributions of some other ridiculously talented folks: inker WAYNE FAUCHER, colorist MIKE ATIYEH, and cover colorists HI-FI. Everybody turned in their A-game for this issue. Trust me. You're gonna love the results.
MISTER TERRIFIC #4 from DC COMICS hits stores & digital platforms Wednesday, December 14th.
