Time for the last wave of the New 52 from DC Comics!
All-Star Western #1 -- Jonah Hex in Gotham City? Sounds like a novel idea. Definitely interested in seeing where this one goes. Want To Check Out.
Aquaman #1 -- I'll always give Aquaman a peek, he's a great classic hero and it seems like he is primed for his push to the top of the card. Picking Up.
Batman: The Dark Knight #1 -- I have yet to figure out why this book exists. Pass.
Blackhawks #1 -- The counterpart to Men Of War, this one looks a little but more like Military Fantasy in the vein of GI Joe, which is awesome. Picking Up (Mail Order).
Flash #1 -- It's the Flash, so of course I am going to check it out. Time for Barry Allen to shine. Picking Up (Mail Order).
Fury of Firestorm #1 -- Shag has talked me up enough on this one, coupled with the awesome Firestorm storyline in Brightest Day. Picking Up.
Green Lantern: New Guardians #1 -- There certainly are a lot of Green Lantern books on the stands now, huh? Pass.
I, Vampire #1 -- I dismissed this book out of hand when I saw the cover, thinking it was shooting for a twinkling vampire effect. The interiors seem to suggest a more serious horror book, so now I am torn. Want To Check Out.
Justice League Dark #1 -- *sigh* Pass just on the title.
Superman #1 -- Superman by George Perez? Color me intrigued. I have my concerns with Action Comics but Superman looks like it might be fun. Picking Up.
Teen Titans #1 -- I am really hopeful that this book will be a success, because I think the DCU needs a good team of Teen Titans. But I have not had an interest in them in a long time. Pass.
Voodoo #1 -- The only Wildstorm book I have ever liked was the reboot of Wetworks. I don't think the WS characters are going to be integrated very well into the regular DCU, and Voodoo is not a character I am interested in anyway. Pass.
Well, that's all of them... right...?
