    Looks like July is going to be pretty awesome. Is Trinity actually going to be worth buying?

    Wow, these all look.. really good. Here's hoping DC can finally recapture my interest.

    Of special interest to me: Joe Harris (Slingers) writing a comic again, Gangbuster in Trinity, Frankenstein in Final Crisis, and of course, Ambush Bug.

    Who the hell is Silver Vision? And why does he have a Green Lantern emblem on one tit, and Batmans insignia on the other?

    Also: Alex Ross hates armor.

    Look a little closer, he has the wrist band like Jon on that arm, but not the other.
    10 bucks it's something about copying powers.

    Hell yes, Frankenstein in Final Crisis. I was just reading that mini the other day and remembering how much I love Frankenstein and how much I hate that he hasn't been used since. God (or whatever strange forces you worship) bless you, Morrison.

    BLUE BEETLE #29
    Written by Matthew Sturges
    Art and cover by Rafael Albuquerque
    New series writer Matthew Sturges (JACK OF FABLES, HOUSE OF MYSTERY) comes aboard to kick off “Boundaries,” with returning series artist Rafael Albuquerque! As Blue Beetle struggles to establish himself as the protector of El Paso and Cuidad Juarez, he finds himself thrown into the heart of the immigration struggle, made all the more complicated by the involvement of Intergang — and another, more mysterious, figure. Coming at you straight outta Texas, Sturges takes our hero into new territory as Beetle works out his responsibilities as both a hero in the DC Universe and a citizen of a border town.

    Interesting if he manages to cover immigration without turning the book into a soapbox.

    And Empress was the YJ character I liked the least.
