Project X Finally announced : THE RAY

On sale DECEMBER 14 • 32 pg, 1 of 4, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
Get ready for a brand new Ray! Lucien Gates’s life is changed forever when he is struck by a mysterious beam of energy that turns him into a glowing gladiator – and being a human ray of light comes in handy when his city is suddenly under attack from giant, building-sized monsters. Unfortunately, light powers are less than handy in keeping his girlfriend happy.

On a Baltimore Comic-Con panel last month, arriving as a fast-patter herald of DC’s “New 52” relaunch, Jimmy Palmiotti was pumped. Now, we’ve begun to understand why.
The prolific team of Palmiotti and Justin Gray has been mixing it up in the dusty West for quite a spell now, notably hitting its targets with the popular Jonah Hex. And in the new Universe, with Palmiotti and Gray (“Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters”) steering the horses, Hex gets to ride again with the Gotham City-set All-Star Western. (This, four decades after Hex debuted in that title.)
Now, DC Comics tells Comic Riffs that Palmiotti and Gray will take the reins for “The Ray” — a four-issue miniseries due out in December that’s devoted to the classic “human ray of light” freedom fighter.
Palmiotti and Gray have worked on the Ray as Stan Silver. Now, the latest identity of the Ray is: Lucien Gates. (“Much to the chagrin of [Lucien’s] girlfriend,” DC says.)
Above, Comic Riffs offers the first blinding look at the new Ray.
