    How the f**k does Bruce Jones get to write so many books: Man-Bat, Nightwing, OMAC, Warlord, and Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight. He's like Bendis, except unlike Bendis, Jones sucks ass.

    Diana is no longer Wonder Woman :(

    Catwoman: Totally hot cover, if a little excessive. Pretty much rules out the whole 'Zatanna could be the soldier that dies' thing though.
    Robin: Hadn't even thought about a Boomer/Robin team-up. I like the idea.
    Supes/Bats: Hal, insane again? Blegh.
    Flash: Costume resembles Wally. Guy looks like Marvel Comics' Shroud.
    Green Arrow: Finally to learn what happened to the Arrow family.
    52: Return of Sue? Looking forward to the Elongated Man (and Steel) origin though as written by Waid. Death of Booster (at the hands of Supernova)? Lobo! Cult of Superman? Death of Steel II? Green Lantern and Arrow back in the saddle? The Question with a face on his mask?
    JLA Classified: About time we got that Kid Amazo story.
    JSA Mixed Signals TPB: That cover just looks awesome put together.
    Martian Manhunter: J'Onn with gloves? Blegh.
    Secret Six: I couldn't think of a better match.
    Trials of Shazam: Hell yes.
    Teen Titans: Finally. I really wanted to learn about this Zatara.

    Very interesting solicits. It looks like a lot of titles got bored of waiting for 52 to fill in the missing year and just started to cram in some details;).
    I'm betting that it's a red herring. We already know that Diana survives the Crisis. We know that the new JLA is going to be comprised of the reunited trinity. I'm thinking that they put "new" there as in she's reinvented herself or something. Like how Batman is a "new" Batman following his sabbatical.

    In my opinion comming up with the idea of Zatara was a huge waste of time considering that there was already a character that was perfect for the role of a teenage Zatanna-like character. A great one too. Her name was Misty Kilgore :o

    I'll give you that one. Although Zatara will probably be a villain or something, the way I read those solicits.

    JL of A #1: WTF?! 30th Century Karate Kid in the JLA?! WTF?!?!? Dammit, with all of the JSA spread over different titles I guess it's a definite that this was definitely the end of the JSA and not a new begining. :(

    Teen Titans #39: Maybe we'll see Zatara's involvement in Kid Devil's "empowerment". And is it just me or has Raven got a hormonal boost in her, uh, chestal area?:eek:

    Justice #7: Beautiful Hawkman cover. Metamorpho and the Doom Patrol? Awesome!:D:up:

    That promotional image has been around for images. It's not sure yet who's gonna be in the JLA, or did accidentally gloss over the solicit, stating what the roster would be?

    Um, yeah...I guess if it's an image it's been around for images.:confused: No, it doesn't say what the final roster is but it's still a WTF moment for me since it's the first time I saw it.

    Aquaman's supposed to be appearing in Action Comics. Definitely looking forward to how Clark reacts to the newbie.

    Robin/Boomerang team-up seems badass. I'm looking forward to the emotional implications of it. The sons of mutual murderers/victims teaming up to fight crime. Only in comics. :D

    I am practically wetting myself with anticipation for Kerschl's guest art on the new Flash comic. Any idea who the speedster with the hood is? He looks like the Pied Piper or an updated Dr. Alchemy, but neither of those make sense.

    I wonder if Johns and Winick are going for some kind of theme where Teen Titans uses villains and then Outsiders uses them the very next issue. It happened with Brother Blood back when the respective series first started, and now the Brotherhood of Evil is jumping right from one to the next.

    The Dini Batman story sounds cool. I'm looking forward to the Riddler's reasons for ostensibly turning crimefighter. I really hope he got over his androgynous, metrosexual phase during the missing year and is back to his normal look, though. The Morrison Batman sounds kind of bland. Tons of Man-Bats and an Elseworlds story coming into the mainstream DCU? Eh. I'll probably end up getting both Batman comics, though.

    Firestorm sounds good except for that ending. "Who is the other Firestorm?" Seriously, it's just absurd now. Soon DC's gonna have a universe composed of one half established, original characters and another half characters who've decided to impersonate the first half.

    I doubt Supernova is Superboy Prime. The US government's got a lot of power, but nowhere near enough to retrieve SBP from the Green Lantern Corps. I think it'll turn out to be the Eradicator. He's overdue for yet another revamp, isn't he?

    I'll probably get whichever cover Captain Atom's on. I think it'll be the GL/GA cover.

    I'm pretty sure it is Diana. "All-new" is one of those things people throw into solicitations that don't really mean anything. Kind of like "shocking twist" and stuff.

    The adventures of the all-new Wonder Woman continue in Part 3 of the 5-part "Who is Wonder Woman" as three of her predecessor's most powerful enemies unite to declare war on the Amazing Amazon. But when Wonder Woman attempts to answer their challenge, she discovers a heroic figure from her past literally beating her to the punch. But who is the gods' new avatar? And where does that leave the new Wonder Woman?

    Also I'm still wondering how the hell is Bruce Jones getting so many damn books. Johns doesn't even have as much as he does :mad:
