DC Comics is playing the role of the tease this week.

This morning CBR received two preview images from the upcoming Grant Morrison creator-owned series "The Filth." Announced January 15th, Morrison will be joined on the book by Chris Weston who'll handle the artistic duties on the title.

Described by DC as "a twisted super-thriller in which Morrison takes the reader on a psychedelic roller coaster ride through a maelstrom of extra-dimensional espionage, disease pathology, sex and violence, prosthetically-equipped dolphins, indolent nano-technology, co-opted reality and the notion of identity itself. Loaded with febrile imagery and Byzantine plot twists, 'The Filth 'is a mind-wrenching journey where nothing is exactly what it seems."

Now last week DC released another set of images from "The Filth" to Comicon Newsarama. Note worthy is they also received an image of "the hand," but in an entirely different pose. The question is where will the hand show up next and what will its gesture be when it does?

DC didn't provide any more details about these images, so for now we'll let you speculate as to their meaning.
