Action Comics #12
– With Grant Morrison’s announcement that he’ll be leaving AC after issue 16, we now know that his sprawling, revamped origin for good old Superman actually will have a conclusion! This month, Morrison continues his tale of “The Forgotten Superman” as well as another back-up – this time featuring Perry White – that will again add more depth to Superman’s world.
Avengers vs. X-Men #9 of 12
– As we enter Act III of Avengers vs. X-Men, the Phoenix Five’s weakness has been revealed and Namor is down for the count! How will the the Scarlet Witch use her newfound ability to excise the Phoenix to turn the tides for the Avengers? I know this is completely out of left field, but as a Young Avengers fan, I want to see some Patriot, Wiccan, Hulkling, Stature, Speed, and Hawkeye II! Hey, a guy can dream.
Earth 2 #4
– Now that we’ve been properly introduced, it’s time to see Earth 2 Flash, Green Lantern, and Hawkgirl in action! Also, the Atom of Earth 2 makes his debut, along with more insight to the Grey and this universe’s Solomon Grundy. James Robinson has stated that he intends to build up this world before putting the JSA together, and he’s doing a fantastic job so far.
Swamp Thing #12
– All DC has released for press info is that this issue “continues from Animal Man #12” which is just a recap. Hopefully, we’ll get to see some actual action happen here. If both issues turn out to be a recap, a single review will be written for both Animal Man and Swamp Thing.
