My pulls for tomorrow:

Batgirl #4
Batman & Robin #4

And I guess that's it. Huh.

I think the IDW Ghostbusters book may come out tomorrow too.

I've heard some good things about The Penguin Pride and Prejudice books but when it's wrapped up I'm guessing a collection/trade will be put out so I'll pick it up then.

New 52 pulls:

Batman and Robin #4
Batgirl #4 (the solitics mention getting answers so we'll see)
Batwoman #4
Superboy #4

Will also be picking up Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes #3

@Trekker I did not see Ghostbusters on tommorrow's solitics.

Yeah, I'm not sure what week it usually comes out, I just grab it whenever I see it. Same with TMNT.

And I believe Supergirl isn't until next week.

^ You're correct, my mistake. I was taking a look at next week's list.

Continuing my tradition of being a marginal fan of marginal books, I'm getting Demon Knights and Frankenstein - before they're cancelled in favor of Batman: Cashing In The Cow and Justice League Poughkeepsie and Mauve-Blue Lanterns with a Sweet Little Ribbon In Their Chapeau Corps.

Today I got:
Resurrection Man #4
Demon Knights #4
Frankenstein AoS #4

But I still haven't read Animal Man #4 or my other DC books from last week.
I'm a bit more behind than normal at this point.

So I wonder if The New 52 will have any kind of impact on LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes? I could easily see them including the New 52 versions as purchasable characters.

OMAC continues to be the book Giffen was born to draw, but the fourth issue of Frankenstein is a pure whomping awesome bag of crazy. With an Aquaman joke.

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

Superboy continues to be interesting. I don't know if I like this new version (I guess I can't even call him Connor at this point because he's a completely new person) and it is confirmed who Red is in this issue. This seems to take place somewhat before the events we saw in Teen Titans #1 where Tim meets with Cassie for the first time. The issue also hints at Superboy's identity but doesn't outright spell it out. Project NoWhere seems more shady than even Cadmus was.

Batgirl #4 this was maybe the best issue so far but we still don't really get any answers about how she regained the use of her legs except that Babs keeps referring to a "miracle". I'm guessing that it is some kind off psychological thing being alluded to but I could be wrong. We do get to see Babs kick some ass against Mirror. I think Mirror was meant to be a metaphorical villain as well so she can reflect back on her own demons and doubts which she has. Also for the first time since I think The Long Halloween and Dark Victory, we see Barbara Gordon...Babs mom. Hopefully the second arc will be more interesting than the first and Simone is just warming up. I will say that the art has been really great and Babs looks fantastic.

Batman and Robin #4: Finally! This is the issue that I have been awaiting. To see Bruce and Damian truly interact as father and son. NoBody is becoming interesting we find out he is the son of Henri Ducard! The two of them have a rather long but poignant discussion about Bruce's methods. The art was decent. This book is slowly becoming the book I expected it to be. Alfred was bad ass in this issue as well. Also Damian finally names his dog!

Batwoman #4: This is by far the darkest and edgiest of the Bat Family books. The art is just amazing and oh boy it looks like Flamebird is in a bad bad way. Interesting juxtaposition of Bette's fight with the brute and Maggie and Kate's sex scenes. This book would probably have a MAX label on it if it was a Marvel book. Not sure how much I'll be continuing to following this one. I admit that I have been getting it mostly for J.H. Williams amazing art.

In other news I am quite enjoying Blue Beetle now that I can understand the armor
I tried the first issue and wasn't hooked. I may be prejudiced due to my love of Jaime's previous series.

ok we get it Ronnie Raymond and Jason Rusch dont like each other, can we advance the story now please.
This was drilled into us during Brightest Day, when there was an actual reason for them to dislike each other (or at least for Jason to hate Ronnie). Having them dislike each other makes Jason into too much of a jerk and Ronnie into too much of a dumb jock.

Captain Atom is just boring even with an appearance by Flash, and well at least they didnt fight in that issue.
I haven't read Captain Atom, but was interested by the tiny little nod to the title in Flash #3. It's great to see little things from one title sneaking into another title.

Dont like the new costume on the new Ray.
Well, jacket aside, it's not like the previous costume was one of the better ones in comics.
