Bloodshot and X-O Manowar have been fun so far. Not really feeling the others, mayb it's just me though. Looking forward to seeing how Shadowman turns out.

Pretty good spread of titles this month. DC seems to be virtually dominating the character categories though, interesting.

Wow, Batman didn't get 1st in anything, that's amazing lol

Oh no!!! I hope they will still have the cover they showed for Blue Beetle #0 original cover. Not that I hate this cover, I just loved the other one

They seem to have outright changed the story. The one solicited in that cover was about the ancient Mayans, this preview seems to be about something else entirely.

I guess I'll give Team 7 a look if Slade's in it. I liked what I read of Luther Strode more for the art than the writing though, I'm completely indifferent on Justin Jordan.

Considering that WB is already going for a JL movie to be released at some point after Man of Steel, we're not gonna get a WW movie before the JL movie. With that in mind, a TV series is the next best thing, from their p.o.v. they could have because they really do need more audience-awareness of the character. If they introduce the character here, atleast somewhat, they won't have to waste too much time introducing her in the JL movie (which is good because her origin is wildly different to everyone elses and it wouldn't 'fit' imo)

If it does well and people like her in the movie she can get a solo movie later.

It's odd how we're a year in and it's still being billed by DC as "The New 52".

When I first saw his tatoo I was confused because it's a sin in Islam (I am muslim). I am kinda glad that DC explained that fact(or not?) and they called it not a sin but a haram(sin in Islam).

I know a couple muslims who have tattoos. Not everyone is the same level of devout in regards to faith. I'm pretty sure all the "Abrahamic" religions frown upon tattoos too ("treating your body like a temple" and all that)

The Islamic Religion is divided into about 73 branches. And from what I know neither of branches allowed tattos. Even those that resemblance the God. Maybe before man reach Islamic enlightenment than it's excusably. Sorry for my English.

I'm aware that Islam generally frowns upon tattoos (I'm muslim myself. Granted, I don't have a tattoo) That has little to do with the fact that some people are simply less devout than others. Hell, we don't even know whether Baz is a practicing muslim or not (is it even important? we'll have to wait and see.)

Help me to understand this about Green lanterns. I was under the impression that for every space sector in the DCU there was one GL. Is that still true? If so why does Earth, have 5 Green Lanterns?

It...currently only has 1 I think. Maybe 2 maximum. Guy and John are on the "honor guard", they have authority in every sector. Hal was kicked out. I think Sinestro was supposed to be the GL of our sector. I have no idea about Kyle's official status as a GL at the moment, sorry. Sinestro (and Hal) are both currently missing-in-action so that leaves Baz (and maybe Kyle)

I'm sorry but that hand gun is just ridiculous. It either shows how horrible his imagination and constructs are, or Rob Liefeld sneaked in and drew on the development pics and everyone just assumed it was legit. I mean it's like Superman flying around with a crowbar. And being a criminal...why would the ring even chose him? I don't know...this just smacks of the usual "let's shake shit up by doing something completely lame and against type." And I'm not commenting on his ethnicity, I could care less about that, it's EVERYthing else about him that's in question.

His ring keeps saying "error" for some reason, he hasn't been shown using it but I'm guessing it'll be glitchy. That and he might not trust the ring immediately. It wasn't covered this issue.

The issue establishes that he's been unemployed for 4 months and he steals so that he can support his sister who is a recently widowed mother. Arguably doesn't justify crime but you'll find that a lot of people turn to criminal behaviour when life is down. Not an admirable thing to do, but definitely not an uncommon concept either.
