"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
It took five issues the last time Jim Lee drew Batman to pit the Caped Crusader against the Man of Tomorrow, but the idea is so neat that it appears to be showing up in the second issue of the new Justice League!
It is interesting to note how DC is making a concerted effort to release a goodly amount of teen superhero titles.
Things are still way too vague (I don’t mean that in a bad way, just noting that they are, quite intentionally I’m sure, being quite vague) with most of these books, so I’ll just share the covers…
What is around Red Robin’s neck there? Is that part of his costume?
The second issue of Wonder Woman, with Wonder Woman facing off against the goddess of discord, sounds so awesome.
Cliff Chiang is amazing (Brian Azzarello is good too, of course, as readers of Batman: Knight of Vengeance are currently witnessing – how amazing, if cruelly twisted, was the twists and turns in the latest issue?).
I don’t get this Green Arrow cover. That’s not Green Arrow, is it?
I love that Levitz seems to be pretty much left alone on his Legion book to do the same high quality stories he was doing before the reboot.
And Nicieza’s Legion Lost series sounds intriguing (especially with the brilliant Pete Woods on art). I worry about dead Legionnaires, though!
I have great faith in Francis Manapul, and I am pleased to see such an interesting solicitation for Flash #2:
The Fastest Man Alive learns he can make his brain function even faster than before – but as much as it helps him, it also comes with a steep price.
Aquaman #2 and Justice League International #2 both have some pretty sweet covers…
As does DC Universe Presents #2 (Ryan Sook is the best)…
Here are the covers for the other remaining titles, Captain Atom #2, Savage Hawkman #2 and Mister Terrific #2…
