Justice League United looks very slick indeed. I like the art.

Everything else is pretty skippable for me. If "future Mirror Master" means Evan McCulloch finally shows up in the New 52, then count me in for The Flash.

- Serious Batman overload going on! Glad I dropped all those titles, it's going to save me a ton of money! I will never understand why one character needs so many titles to himself and constant crossovers...kind of sucks...

- I really don't get why they're doing a Secret Origins Batman comic also. Isn't Snyder already doing an origin? And didn't we get a few during Zero Month? Come on DC!!

- I don't get why they're retelling the Death of Superman. Seems like a wast of money!

- Really happy to hear Before Watchmen is coming out in trades and that they're cheap! I was about to cave and buy the hardcovers, but looks like I don't have to now! Save me a lot of money!

- I'll be picking up Dead Boy Detectives first trade as well! It has 6 issues in it for only $10? Score!!

- Red Hood and the Outlaws seems to be in good hands with Will Pfiefer taking over!

Niiiiice. There's so many good things happening on the horizon. Alan Scott is coming back to Earth 2, Batman's team up-fest continues with Frankenstein (that's gonna be an amazing reunion), Constantine and the JLD both seem to be heading in interesting directions after "Blight", and Catwoman's "Race of the Outlaws" is bringing in the Rogues (automatic addition to my pull list). All in all, I'm planning on grabbing:

  • Batman and Frankenstein #31
  • Catwoman #31
  • Constantine #14
  • Earth 2 #23
  • FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics #10
  • Injustice Year Two #5
  • Justice League Dark #31

I might also be adding Batman Eternal to my pull list, but I'm still on the fence about whether I should grab the monthly issues or tradewait. Hopefully, since it's being released so often, the weekly titles get TPBs faster than the regular monthlies.

Glad to see Grifter and Stormwatch back, a post-apocalyptic cyber punk future is kinda perfect for those characters

Oh man soooo many good covers! Seriously some epic artwork going on.

Jae Lee's take on Catwoman is amazing. Also the Batgirl covers continue to blow my mind.

they said when they introduced the new lobo that he would kill off a imposter that looks just like the original

@transformers1024: read the solicit there not retelling death/return of superman clark survives the battle with doomsday but there will be this deadly side affect after fighting him.Secret Origin batman this is when he was a kid the infamous death of his parents and Snyder doing batman 1st year of batman.Batman is literally dc cash cow so that why he has so many book.

@transformers1024: Batman gets more books because Batman sells. You are well within your right not to buy it.

2- They are not retelling Death of Superman. In the new52 his death is not assured. So far no pre-new52 stories have been rehashed.

3. Secret Origins has a 12 page story for Batman meant for new readers to catch up. It'll probably a quick summary showing what's still in continuity. And Batman SELLS.

@movieartman: Looks like it'll be more of a chase than previously assumed. They never said it was gonna be quick. NuLobo will be 1 step behind.

@inferiorego: you should totally post the Valiant solicits

I was interested in Futures End until i saw it was weekly. *insert "Aint Nobody Got Money For Dat" meme here*

I still have my doubts of Nightwings "death"

Secret Origins looks neat.

Earth 2 Superman looks like Henry Cavill.

Time for me to stop picking up the crap. No doubt some good new on-goings around the corner.

Will see how the new Flash team turns out, only trying because of Booth's art.

Goodbye Green Lantern! :(

Too much Batman in my list now with the addition of Eternal weekly. Goodbye Batman and whoever.

Pandora you may be next!

Looking forward to Futures End. I wonder if the Earth there fighting is a Darkseid controlled Earth 2.

New 52- Futures End seems like a grander version of Marvels Futures Past with the most star wars esc cover in existence. Btw Grifter looks like Han solo

Superman Doom looks awesome with Doomsday being one of my favorite villains. Expect to see tons of Man of Steel references and hopefully some planet busting DC needs more of that.

Justice League united I mean look at my pic as of right now of course I'm excited.

Justice League its Lex Luthor I mean come on

Aquaman and the others this makes total since and I definitely saw it coming and being the Aquaman fan I am I'm guaranteed to pick it up.

Swamp Thing come on man I pick up your title to but I just like Aquaman a bit more

Justice League 3000 well its the future its a new series so I'm not likely to know what there doing who the face is on the cover

Earth 2 hay Henry Cavil since when did you replace Superman

Worlds Finest nice hair change powergirl

Wonder Woman what's wrong with that tree?

Superman/Wonder Woman Iook diana doomsday is cool and all but seriously you dump clark for him and I can tell your still in love you got the guy dressing up as him

Vampire Diaries don't ask me why I read this book

Also Orion figure

Dont know how I feel about Futures end..

Two great authors(Azzarello and Lemire) and two bad authors(Giffen and Jurgens) imo.

Hopefully its good.

Posted by ClawFist

GRIFTER!!!!!!!! Bring home the WildCats back to comics!!! :D

Posted by Vitalius

Power Girl kind looks alike Emma Frost. For a moment i thought Emma became Power Girl in crossover.

The writers of futures end said that there would be about 20 characters that they would focus on, so now we have firestorm, batman beyond, Frankenstein(my fav out of these) , grifter, and red robin. Who else is going to be in it? Maybe one super, lantern, or a flash? I hope they have a flash in there still alive.

Edited by wimble23

Still way under 52, I was hoping for so awesome new ongoings to starts but it looks like I have to wait another month.

Posted by fables87

Love the Wonder Woman cover and WOW WOW WOW on the Fables cover :D

Posted by CaptainMarvel4Ever

Sigh.... no Cyborg series, but at least we see Grifter.

Posted by ShadowSwordmaster

Nice to see some wildstorm characters here.

So, who else thinks that lady in the green room with Obama (see Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S) is going to be the new female GL?

Posted by 2cool4fun

1. Future End? I thought it wou;d be coming after Batman Eternal ends, y'know cause 1 weekly series is much as it is.

2. GRIFTER :D

3. Aquaman & Swamp Thing? YES!!

4. Batman in secret origins? REALLY? Isn't the fact that he is curently in an origin story good enough? On top of that he had 3 zero year issues, and another origin in Detective comics!!

5. WALLY :D, and is that black flash :O

6. Supergirl still looks awesome

7. Oh god Jon Lane Kent, please some one kill him with fire...and bring Kon back if you can

8. What is Catwoman doing in central city?

9. Lobo + Red Hood & The Outlaws? YES YES YES YES YES YES YES 100 TIMES YES!!!!!!!!!

10. Looks like Kyle & Guy still have far more interesting books then John & Hal

11. Injustice Gods Among Us, WHY ARE YOU SO GOOD?

12. Smallvile looks cool, still not sure about starting that...

13. Looks like an amazing month to love DC!!

Posted by TheFirstLantern

I also feel like they are saving the big news for titles until June. Summer is perfect timing i think.

I hope they put wally in there :D, since he is going to be appearing in flash during that time. I have a feeling supergirl will be there instead of superman, and if they do put a GL, I hope it's either Kyle, or that female one that Johns teased in his last issue of GL.
