    Paul Levitz is a very pedestrian writer.

    There is a description of the Free Comic Book Day New 52 book in this article. According to the description it will focus on Pandora (Purple Lady). It will focus on her motivations and what characters she has been watching (we probably got clues about this latter during all the issue ones she was in). Also Darkseid is confirmed as the cosmic big bad (pretty obvious if one has been reading Justice League) with whatever the New 52 is leading up to. Also we might be in for the return of some fan favourite characters.

    Red Hood and the Outlaws #5: I was planning to give up on this title, and I still plan to, but after the hook at the end, I had to get issue #6.

    Nightwing #5: I was going to say farewell to this one as well, but a big hook has kept me wanting more for at least another issue. Damn them!

    Birds of Prey #5: Watching the girls in action is fun. I'll stick with this one for now.

    Three observations.

    1. Aquaman is foreground.
    2. Aquaman is not grouped with the others.
    3. It's not a happy looking group...except Batman of all people who has a bit of a smile.

    Superman seems to be contemplating whether or not he could get away with moving his hand a bit to the right.

    The look on Supe's face is almost a little creepy IMO.

    Superman and Batman look evil on that cover. I'm looking for the beard on both of them.

    Aquaman looks pissed off as usual. As for pulls tomorrow...I think just Aquaman#6 for me DC wise.

    On a related note, Hal looks like he's trying to stare down Wonder Woman's shirt. Which...Hal, so yeah.

    I think I might have a bit a of a one track mind.

    Knowing how Hal has been written lately that would match his personality. I liked the cover for Justice League #6 better with them all kneeling before Darkseid, except for Batman who looks like he's planning a counter attack. Sigh. It is sad how much disinterest I have for Justice League right now. LOL

    And while everyone is looking forward, it looks like GL is checking out Wonder Woman's ass.

    Oh come-on! Like you haven't occasionally lurked in the bushes of an ex-lover's house and used your x-ray vision and super-hearing to spy on her.

    Pulls today:

    Aquaman
    Superman
    Batman and Robin
    Flash

    Also TMNT and Donatello (both I think are out today) for non-DC.

    Batman and Robin isn't out today. Are you thinking about Batman: The Dark Knight? This and Batwoman are the only new Bat Family Books out today.
