Yes, he does.  Here's the solicit:

Quote
DR. THIRTEEN: ARCHITECTURE & MORTALITY TP 

Written by Brian Azzarello, art and cover by Cliff Chiang.

The adventures of Dr. Terrence Thirteen, a parapsychologist who disproves reports of supernatural activity. In this story collected from Tales of the Unexpected. #1-8, Dr. Thirteen rounds up a group of the world's magical beings to prevent strange forces from tearing asunder the very fabric of the past, present, and future!

144 pages, $14.99, in stores on Sept. 19.





But the big story (at least for us) is this:

Quote
THE ORIGINAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COMIC-BOOK HEROES VOL. 3: SUPERMAN 

Written by Michael L. Fleisher, art by various.

Everything you ever wanted to know about DC's Man of Steel can be found in this in-depth volume, brought back into print for the first time in 30 years! Originally published in 1978, this comprehensive volume includes every fact you could want to know about Superman!

Oh, yeah!

I would call that one the surprise of the month, except that the Showcase volumes beat it:  Batman and the Outsiders, and Captain Carrot!   Shocked  Who'd have guessed?
