DC COMICS SLATES A NEW STORY FOR JLA CLASSIFIED #26

This August, JLA CLASSIFIED #26 will feature the first chapter of “Sacred Trust,” a new 6-part tale of the Justice League! 
 
“Sacred Trust” replaces the “Kid Amazo” story originally scheduled for this issue and solicited in the June Previews (Volume XVI #6).  The “Kid Amazo” story will be resolicited in JLA CLASSIFIED at a later date. 
 
All previous orders for JLA CLASSIFIED #26 under the item code JUN060190 are cancelled. 
 
Written by Howard Chaykin, with art and a cover by Kilian Plunkett & Tom Nguyen, “Sacred Trust” begins when the United Nations forbids the Justice League from getting involved in meta-human activities outside the United States, resulting in a rift between the Leaguers themselves!  What will be the right course of action?  And will “plausible deniability” protect anyone from the fall-out? 
 
JLA CLASSIFIED #26 will be retro-resolicited in the July Previews (Volume XVI #17), and is scheduled to arrive in stores on August 30. 
 
The July Previews also will include the solicitation for JLA CLASSIFIED #27, part 2 of “Sacred Trust.”  This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on September 13.

SCULPTOR RAY VILLAFANE SIGNS EXCLUSIVE CONTRACT WITH 
DC DIRECT

DC Direct has announced that sculptor Ray Villafane has signed an exclusive deal with the company to work on upcoming DC Direct products. 
 
“Signing someone of Ray’s caliber is a real coup for us,” explained Georg Brewer, Vice President of Design and DC Direct Creative.  “We are always looking to have the most talented sculptors work on the greatest characters, and bringing Ray into the DC Direct family is part of that goal.” 
 
Villafane attended the School of Visual Arts in New York.  In 1991 he graduated with a BFA in Illustration and a degree to teach kindergarten – 12th grade art. 
 
Despite a promising career in illustration, Ray followed his passion for working with children and became an art teacher in Northern Michigan.  After 12 years of teaching, in 2003 Ray felt it was time to move on and refocus on his art.  Ray decided to try his hand at sculpting.  Within three months he had landed his first professional job. 
 
His career as a sculptor took off overnight and within a year, Ray’s clients included Bowen Designs, McFarlane Toys, Sideshow Collectibles and DC Direct. 
 
After two years of juggling his sculpting and teaching, Ray decided to focus strictly on his work for DC Direct. 
 
“Joining DC is very exciting,” Villafane said.  “Working on such timeless characters is an honor.  The individuals with whom I’ve had the opportunity to work with at DC have been nothing short of great.  I am confident that working closely together we will help bring about some of the best collectibles and action figures that the comic book industry has to offer.”

52 WEEK 10 (MAY060153) is on final order increase cutoff this week, and Wednesday, June 14 is the last chance for retailers to adjust their initial orders up or down on this issue. 
 
52 WEEK 10 is written by Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka and Mark Waid, with breakdowns by Keith Giffen, art by Chris Batista, Jimmy Palmiotti & Jack Jadson and a cover by J.G. Jones.  This issue also features the next “History of the DCU” backup feature, written by Dan Jurgens and illustrated by Jurgens & Andy Lanning.  This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on July 12 with a cover price of $2.50 U.S.

BATMAN STRIKES COLLECTIONS TO BE RESOLICITED
