Captain Atom is taking his powers to new heights - saving people all across the world in the blink of an eye. But he's not the only one who can move at super speed. Enter: The Flash! And when their paths cross, don't expect them to share the secret hero's handshake - because Captain Atom may be a bigger threat than any villain.

Check back in a little bit. J.T. Krul will be answering some of our questions.

Love the Captain Atom cover, cant wait for that. Although I will be picking it up am not too sure about Green Arrows look, he looked grate on 1# but 2# and 3# not so much.

Well I guess I'm in the minority. I HATE the cover and Ollie's new ski goggles.

Siick covers. Green Arrow's new bow looks awesome. it looks like he'll be a much more public superhero, the last issue solicit had him fighting supervillains while "the whole world was watching" too... nothing wrong with that i just hope they don't overdo it 
Captain Atom/Flash crossover looks amazing. First crossover of the DCnU! can't wait!

Actully, technically Batgirl has the first crossover (with Nightwing), but should be about the same time, so close.

DC really tries to be hip right now.

Ew.  Jersey Shore reference in first description of comic.  That aside, I like J.T. Krul and would probably read this.

Q-Phones & Q-Pads? DC doesn't have Apple products after Flashpoint????

Krul is great at writing characters with inner pain. For that reason, I think Captain Atom will be some of Kruls best work to date. Green Arrow looks cool. Itll be... different. It seems hes much more of a media person now. Which is cool. I cant judge it based on the description for that reason. I miss his beard.

Posted by ObsideonDarman

Those covers look slick as hell. Love Ollie's Bow!

Posted by Eyz

So Ollie's beardless now?
This means Arsenal/Roy over on Jason Todd's book will look exactly like this new Ollie/Green Arrow only in red...

Posted by CaptainCockblock

AAAAH!!! Beard! Domino Mask! What's so hard about that?! And Ollie's inexplicably back in charge of Queen Industries now?! What happened to the Queen?! You can't just erase character development because you think the stories back then were better. Those stories were told in their time. This is a different time. Move forward, not back.

I'm not digging the goggles either. Though I'm liking the rest of his look.

Looks like Nathaniel Adam is truly being written to his potential in this book. Great! And yes GA's look is great now in this revamp :) At least in my opinion.

Posted by Bestostero

Captain Atom looks awesome...minus the flaming head of course  :D

Posted by cbishop

I know that Roy's supposed to be Arsenal, over in the Outlaws, but this Green Arrow looks more like Roy than Ollie... am I the only one that sees that?

Posted by StarKiller809

Cool. I'm not getting this series but it looks like one I would buy an issue digitally every so often and read.

...great now i have to add Captain Atom to my pull wallet is gonna hate me

It would indeed be a nice change but the flaming hair is just wrong :/ Be nice to see him as a good character again after the Captain Atom: Armageddon travesty.
I am liking the new GA bow though.

Q-Phones and Q-Pads? Anyways, the cover art looks great.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

The Green Arrow cover looks awesome

Posted by shawn87

Awesome covers. Green Arrow is still throwing me off a little. I'm not used to his appearance that way. I am excited to read the Green Arrow series though. 

Posted by The_Tree

Give Ollie his goatee!

Posted by RichyRich

Kinda feel like their going for a Samllville inspired Green Arrow look
Posted by sentryman555
@RichyRich:  I was thinking the same thing
Posted by GraveSp

I don't really mind the goggles I bet they have some fancy function now that he is getting more techy.  I don't like the hair or his facial hair.  

Posted by Tyranisrex

If I start seeing Cam's on the tips of any of Green Arrow's bows again I'm gonna mail the artist a few extra bows I have sitting around.  This cover looks better then the previous two though, and the Captain Atom cover is off the hook.  Looking forward to both books but I've got worries and concerns about the Green Arrow stuff.

Posted by Pizawle

Both very nice covers and I dig the solicit for Captain Atom.

Posted by FNspiderdan

i would be stoked for the captain atom book if they got rid of the fire hair. he looks like hades in the disney herc movie haha

Posted by imaginaryman
