Sounds pretty good to me I'm hoping that they can help Enchantress regain her sanity and she joins the team. Think it would be pretty neat if she was on the team too

SWAMP THING #2
Written by SCOTT SNYDER
Art and cover by YANICK PAQUETTE
On sale OCTOBER 5 * 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US * RATED T+
Alec Holland thought he knew the history of the Swamp Thing - but he was wrong. The creature's roots run deeper than he knows, and the Parliament of Trees intends to make him understand the responsibility he wants so desperately to avoid! With this issue, the mythology of the Swamp Thing branches out in ways you never saw coming - don't miss it!




FRANKENSTEIN: AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E. #2
Written by JEFF LEMIRE
Art by ALBERTO PONTICELLI
Cover by J.G. JONES
On sale OCTOBER 12 * 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US * RATED T
It's all-out war as Frankenstein and his new field team, The Creature Commandos, uncover an age-old conspiracy at the heart of Bone Lake - one that will see them suit up as the world's first "Necronauts," traveling between worlds and through "dead space," toward the mysterious Monster Planet. Meanwhile, the horrifying origins of the Commandos are revealed - and the S.O.M.B.I.E. makes its first appearance!




RESURRECTION MAN #2
Written by DAN ABNETT and ANDY LANNING
Art by FERNANDO DAGNINO
Cover by IVAN REIS and JOE PRADO
On sale OCTOBER 12 * 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US * RATED T+
Mitch Shelley's past remains a mystery. So when he goes looking for answers, will he find them? Not likely, when he has to contend with the bounty hunter femme fatales known as The Body Doubles.




JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #2
Written by PETER MILLIGAN
Art by MIKEL JANIN
Cover by RYAN SOOK
On sale OCTOBER 26 * 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US * RATED T
Madame Xanadu continues guiding the world's darkest heroes in their struggle against evil. But will John Constantine, Zatanna, Shade the Changing Man and the others be able to join forces in time to defeat the dangerous Enchantress before she destroys the world as we know it?




I, VAMPIRE #2
Written by JOSHUA HALE FIALKOV
Art by ANDREA SORRENTINO
Cover by JENNY FRISON
On sale OCTOBER 26 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T+
True love becomes divine hatred between the Queen of Blood and Andrew, as her vampires begin their attacks across the country. Their past behind them, they find themselves ready to battle to the death… If those feelings really are all gone. Surrounded by swarms of bloodthirsty vamps, Andrew must confront his immortal beloved in a blood-soaked battle he can’t win.




DEMON KNIGHTS #2
Written by PAUL CORNELL
Art by DIOGENES NEVES and OCLAIR ALBERT
Cover by TONY S. DANIEL
On sale OCTOBER 12 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
The siege that will reverberate through history to the present-day DCU begins as the Demon Etrigan and his unlikely lover, Madame Xanadu, face the Horde! What five (mostly) noble souls would be crazy enough to join them? The cover gives but a hint, and the point could well be moot by the time this issue’s done. For the Horde is armed with the magic of Mordru – including some decidedly different dragons!



ANIMAL MAN #2
Written by JEFF LEMIRE
Art and cover by TRAVEL FOREMAN
On sale OCTOBER 5 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T+
Maxine’s new abilities continue to terrify Ellen and Buddy Baker, and things take a turn for the worse as Buddy begins a startling transformation of his own that will lead him on a journey into the heart of The Red. Meanwhile, The Hunters Three arrive on Earth and set their sights on the Baker family. The Hunt is on as DC’s most surprising new series continues to take ANIMAL MAN in shocking new directions.


Plus, a new title joins the DCU Dark ranks in October...



THE SHADE #1
Written by JAMES ROBINSON
Art by CULLY HAMNER

1:10 Variant cover by CULLY HAMNER
On sale OCTOBER 12 * 1 of 12, 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US * RATED T+

Look out Animal Man! Tetsuo is going to get you!

Everything here looks great. Except I, Vampyre...a little too Anne Rice for my taste.

Haha, the exact thought popped into my head as well. I'm guessing the woman in the very Wonder Woman-ish suit is the Amazon mentioned before in Demon Knights?

Oh, also, they posted up the Stormwatch solicit with this stuff as well.

STORMWATCH #2
Written by PAUL CORNELL

Art and cover by MIGUEL SEPULVEDA
On sale OCTOBER 5 * 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US * RATED T+
The moon is alive! Following the events of SUPERMAN #1 where [TEXT REDACTED], the covert team of sci-fi Super Heroes known as Stormwatch must not only battle the Earth's moon, but find a way to hide its monstrous metamorphosis from the rest of the Earth! How? Uh, they're working on it. Meanwhile, the recruitment of Midnighter goes poorly, and we learn why the Martian Manhunter is a member of the team. Written by Paul Cornell (Doctor Who)!
Apparently some kind of crossover going on with Perez's Superman. And holy ****, they are fighting the moon. I always wanted to write a story like that, damn you Cornell! Though, I do find it weird with being the regular writer for the current Action Comics, they only credit him with Doctor Who...

They are fighting the moon

Oh my golly gosh they are fighting the moon

If this comic book was candy I would eat an entire store full of it

If this comic book was alcohol I would binge drink it until my liver was completely wrecked

This comic is definitely going to sell well. How can anyone not want to read about superheroes fighting an evil moon

I will definitely be checking that out. Despite how crummy Cry for Justice was the later issues of his JLA were neat and the Shade was a character I really dug during Starman

Cornell has said that they're both out and proud. He's also said we'll get to see the moment when they first meet.

I love those two really glad that their going to be in the Stormwatch series

And I'm looking forward to seeing Apollo vs The Moon. Surely that will be the greatest fight in the history of superhero comic books

DC Dark and Edge panel

Honestly, I don't have anything new to say. Mostly everything from Dark and a few things from Edge look and sound fantastic.

Yep Batwoman and the supernatural and 'edge' DC comic books are the ones I'm most looking forward to

Really interested in seeing how Apollo and Midnighter first meet and how they fall in love

And Demon Knights sounds amazing. Sounds like a sword and sorcery version of Secret Six so I'm digging that

And Frankenstein sounds like it could be a pretty interesting series too

Yep, for sure. Already preordered it along with most of the other DCU Dark books (Except for I, Vampire and Voodoo. The former I'm not really interested in, the latter Im gonna try digitally maybe).

I'm super excited for these books, Demon Knights, Animal Man and Frankenstein most especially

I'm thinking of checking out Voodoo because an exotic dancer who's a half alien superhero sounds like it could be the most thing ever but yep not sure about I vampire

My comic book shop is totally okay with people reading comics in the store before deciding whether they are going to buy them or not so I will probably check it out and decide whether or not I'll buy it

Yeah, the comic shop back home before I moved earlier this year was like that. Now I don't even have a real comic shop, we have an entertainment store that does movies, books, music and other stuff and very obviously doesn't care about their comics section enough to put them out on time and its a guessing game as to whether or not their up. I went in there a played out this scenario way too many times with way too many employees on wednesday afternoons:

Me: Where are the comics that are supposed to be out today?
Employee: Um... which ones are supposed to be out today.
Me: All of them...
Employee (starting to panic cause they know nothing): Uh... Uh... I don't really know anything about that.

I eventually decided they were too dumb for my business when I asked one of the managers about it and they seemed completely ignorant of when comics are supposed to come out. So I started getting mine online exclusively, which is nice cause you get a big discount if you order a couple months in advance through some retailers.

Basically, since I refuse to go to the only comics retailer in the area Im sort of stuck with deciding from online previews and interviews with creators and such. And I just couldn't really decide if Voodoo would be worth my time and I've never read anything by the writer so I'm just gonna wait and see if I hear good things about it.

As for I, Vampire, I'm just kind of sick of vampire stories (though I do love American Vampire) and it taking place in the DCU isn't enough of a hook for me and I've never heard of the writer. If I hear some amazing stuff about it I might check it out later but from what I've seen so far hasn't really impressed me.
