    Can't wait for this! Queen of the Black Coast is a fantastic short story, and I can't wait to see what this exciting creative team do with it in 25 issues. Apparently Wood is filling out a lot of the 'lost Black Coast years' with this, so it will be really interesting to see what he does with the character.

    Becky Cloonan's art is gorgeous as always. Bring on Wednesday!
