Batman titles: A three month cross-over? Wow, it's not just Marvel that's suffering from early nineties nostalgia...
Superman Adventures digests...all written by Mark Millar, which is odd, because I could have sworn that Millar said not too long ago that DC was refusing to publish any of his work because he "blew the whistle" on the Authority edits. Gee, he couldn't possibly have been talking out of his ass, could he?
Superman/Batman #13 has an actual variant cover, not just a seperate cover for a reprint edition. Again, early 90s syndrome strikes.
The Greatest Superman Stories Ever Told trade reprints the truly awful Authority=bad story from Action #775. You know, it would be nice for someone to try to write a "why Superman is still relevant storyline" without resorting to the lazy straw man argument of "because more contemporary characters are bad role models."
Action Heroes Archive is all well and good, but where's my archive featuring Lou Fine's work on Black Condor? For that matter, where are any archives featuring any Quality Comics characters other than Plastic Man?
Peter David and Harlan Ellison are writing a Justice League story as part of the DC Comics Presents line. This should be...interesting.
Flash is already incorporating events from Identity Crisis into its storyline, and IC isn't even over yet (or out yet, technically).
"All the power and none of the responsibility" is apparently the tag-line for the Focus line...seems a bit late to be trying to come up with an advertising slogan to me.
My inner nerd is for some reason very pleased with the idea of a big knock-down, drag-out fight between the JLA and Deathstroke in Identity Crisis #3.
The JSA fight the all-new, all-different Sandman. Again, for some reason I find this amusing. And it's drawn by Jerry Ordway, so it'll look purty too.
Manhunter #1 marks the introduction of, what, the 20th or so character to be called "Manhunter" in the DCU. I mean, I understand the need to renew the copyright from time to time, but aren't there any other names available?
Weird Origins brings me the sort of thing I like...old, goofy, utterly nonsensical comics from back in the days when people understood that super-heroes were primarily for children.
I wonder if I'll have $50 to spare for Absolute Planetary, or if I should just get the Authority: Human on the Inside book for Pete? All things being equal, I suspect I'll get the book for Pete.
Astro City is one of the very few books that gets the concept of "super-heroes for adults" right. It's not always the best book out there, but I always enjoy it anyway.
I just want to say penultimate Promethea.
The DC/Humanoids collaborations start to be of interest to me with Cassaday's I Am Legion: The Dancing Faun and a collected edition of Deicide. Both are my sort of thing. Dark, a little cynical maybe, with quality art.
Transmetropolitan: Tales of Human Waste completes the Transmet library by reprinting the prestige format specials and the Winter's Edge story.
WE3 is going to depress me, isn't it? It's Incredible Journey only without Disney's involvement. It'll be good, but oh, man...it's not going to end well for the animals, is it?
I don't want to know who has a spare $350 for a Batman utility belt replica, do I?
