    That Batman cover is confusing me. Why are there three Batmans? Why is one of them a vampire?

    solicitations also come with word descriptions!

    As if words could help.

    More solicitations are up.

    Booster Gold looks like it'll continue to kick ass, though I'm always paranoid about a classic story being mucked about with.

    Oh hey look at that, Green Lantern following up the Sinestro Corps war with a Final Crisis story.

    shocking

    It's not a Final Crisis story.

    It "sets the stage for the Green Lanterns' role in FINAL CRISIS".

    there is a difference

    I'm now very excited for Final Crisis given the new solicit for GL #26

    I believe that Johns said somewhere that Morrison at least partially came up with the idea of the "Alpha Lanterns" for use in Final Crisis. That probably means the story won't suck and will be as close as we will get to Morrison writing Green Lantern.

    What the fuck "won't suck"

    Johns' GL has been awesome

    It's pretty obvious that GL is going to be slowly creeping towards the "third chapter" in the trilogy that Johns has planned.

    Which will no doubt involve multiple colored Lanterns.

    Seriously though bring the fucking Corpse back in GL. I know they are getting a mini but it will probably just go unacknowledged.

    The Corpse are supposed to be unacknowledged.


    On another note, I didn't even realize that the Red Son one shot is written by Alan Burnett. How can it fail?

    Yeah that might have been a little harsh. But you have to admit that #1-9 were pretty boring. It's been great since OYL.

    The thing is, I don't have much faith in Johns to actually pull off any sort of a high concept story. I'm a little nervous about the end of the Sin Corps War, but I'm really expecting this whole "Rainbow Lantern" subplot to become a spectacular train wreck.

    The concept for that Booster Gold story is... interesting.

    Has the series been worth picking up thus far? I don't even know how many issues there have been.

    There have been two issues so far. If you enjoy fun action comics with occasional moments of gravitas and poignancy, then try it out. It's better if you've read 52 though.

    I wonder if, like gender changes nowadays, there are race changes in the future. Because Karate Kid looks awfully white there.

    I also think it's hilarious how Cyclone is hugging Superman KC.

    Then you need to start going to a shop who's owner doesn't extort his regulars with overpriced covers.

    And yeah, this months JSofA variant had a great cover.

    They're simple, single character portraits. I think they do their job just fine.

    But honestly, I'm not going to debate this with you.

    I don't have to admit that because I don't agree at all.

    Also what Johns stuff have you read?

    I'm gonna go ahead and assume none of his old JSA stuff
