DC Comics has just announced the Brightest Day solicitations for comics, including JLA and Generation Lost, shipping October 2010. Justice League emerges from the post-Dark Things wrap-up and hits the big Fifty – an extra-sized issue with a two-variant covers. Even the normal cover appears to be a bit special – a gate fold cover by Ethan Van Sciver (I assume the preview image is part of that). There is also a 75th anniversary (DC’s own anniversary that is) cover by Jim Lee. It wasn’t included in the solicitations, but the 75th Anniversary covers have been recreations of classic covers done by modern artists.
Updated a few hours later to add the JLA/The-99 crossover, the cover had been trailed last week, and is description was included in the full solicitations.
