Solicits: Hal, Jaime, Diana, and... Mitch?

Full DC solicits up.

I already told you about the Justice League of America #14 cover, and the Countdown tie-ins.

The covers to Green Lantern #24 and Green Lantern Corps #17 look good, but I don't trust the solicits enough to try and derive any clues from them. Suffice it to say, I'm going to be reading and hanging on every panel of both books and the two Sinestro Corps tie-in specials.

Blue Beetle's getting in on the fun, too:

A “Sinestro Corps War” tie-in! The Lanterns’ war hits home as a yellow ring appears in El Paso. But is it being offered to the Scarab or to Jaime Reyes? And whose will is stronger?

The cover to the Flash #233 has the kids in cute costumes.

Aside from that, this looks written with me in mind:
Written by Mark Waid

Wonder Woman and Power Girl fight side-by-side against a foe who may be more powerful than both of them combined!

And, of course, the one to wait for:

What exactly is the Circle, and what deadly secret do they hold about Diana’s birth? What familiar face from Wonder Woman’s past returns with a mission to spy on Special Agent Diana Prince?

All this plus monkey assassins in a story that spans the globe and shakes Diana to her core!

The other thing to catch my eye was this (emphasis mine):

I think we can take it as a given that they're digging him up so they can kill him again.


  1. Aw... They couldn't have called it Happy Halloween, Judeo-Christians! #1?

  2. *looks at the Suicide Squad cover, grumbles something about pteranodons not having any teeth, dammit*

  3. I think we can take it as a given that they're digging him up so they can kill him again.

    I sure hope so! Mitch works best when he's being killed!

  4. Resurrection Man! Woohoo! Oh Mitch, I've missed you.

    Plus, Wonder Woman seems to have monkeys in it. Can't go wrong with monkeys.

    And I'm VERY relieved to see covers that actually have Guy Gardner on them. There weren't any for a while, and I was getting worried. (breathes a heartfelt sigh of relief)

  5. Holy crap, Resurrection Man! That's BOSS!

    Seriously, that was a darn good comic.

  6. I bet if you put "All this plus monkey assassins" on ANY solicit, up to and including one for 'Grapes of Wrath', it would boost sales by 20%.

  7. I think we can take it as a given that they're digging him up so they can kill him again.

    Yeah, but isn't that his whole schtik?

  8. What powers come with being dead for a long time?
