Will wait for a color version but at first blush I'm not digging all the accent lines on the suit.

Color version including a thumbnail sketch. I'm incredibly excited for this. DC's been sitting on John Jr for awhile now and I'm excited to see what he does with Clark, while Johns' "Action Comics" run is what brought be back to reading the character again.

They're part of the Jim Lee redesign. Romita and Jansen just foreground them more.

Maybe Sterling Gate can go back to Supergirl. Or Superboy even. Both need fixing.

And looks like Nocienti is off of Catwoman. Maybe she is writing Titans next.

From everything I've seen about her run on Catwoman, that sounds like a good thing.

It couldn't be as bad as her Green Arrow.

Forever Evil #5

I still feel this story is being incredibly drawn out. Compare this to how jammed packed with events every issue of Infinite Crisis was. We're five issues in and it feels like the story is finally being introduced. Lex has his band of heroes and there's a sign of a coming invasion of... something.

My theory: since the invasion happened because Power Ring was killed, it's the Earth-3 version of the Guardians of the Galaxy. And rather than just being manipulative dicks, they're completely evil world conquerors there.

I loved the moment where Batman attempts to assert control over Lex and his band of merry men and they just stare at him and Catwoman has to say you're not in charge of anything

It's probably the Anti-Monitor. You remember he is still alive after Blackest Night. I doubt Johns would let him go after spending so much time bringing him back and building him back up.

Newsarama speculates that if the red skies mean another Crisis and the villain is the Anti-Monitor, then the Hooded Man is the Monitor.

It sounds like (haven't read the issue yet) DC is building up to the 52'Verse's first "Crisis" (since DiDio established back at the start of the relaunch all Crisises were no longer valid).

The stories that set up the first crisis...ya. I'm guessing whatever Future's End is apart of this as well.

i don't really see what the point of bringing in the Anti-Monitor is. except to sell comics of course.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Swamp Thing #28 - really enjoyed the detail backstory on Capucine. It's obvious from the omission the plan is to reveal and/or bring back her eternal "brothers" in some way. May not be pleasant. Ties to the Demon Etrigan are never a good thing afterall.

I am curious as to why when Alec Holland escaped the Green and brought Wolf, Lady Weeds etc why Alec wasn't also returned to human form like the other 3? Why would Alec retain his Avatar body and not them? All were ex-Avatars so their station should've been the same. I think that the Red may come calling for Lady Weeds, or the Rot based on that quick act with the snake.

Waiting to see what Seeder/Floronic Man has to say about Holland destroying the Parliament and severing the Greens connections.

Thought this was a very good issue.
