I'll be picking up Batman, and Robin of course. The closest thing I can relate this too would be the Flash #1 when Wally became the Flash for the 1st time.

GL Corps is a great read, and Strange Adventures will tie into some of the big upcoming mysteries from DC.

Secret 6 is easily becoming one of my favorite books

I'll have my review of Batman and Robin later.


Secret 6 makes us wonder "does Bane make Scandal change teams????" And I dont mean Superhero teams if you catch my drift.

Gotta wait till next month to find out for sure.

I'll be picking Green Lantern, Gotham Sirens, Detective Comics and Superman, those are looking good, I'm following all of those history lines (GL, Batman Reborn and World Without Superman). Also I have just read Batman & Robin and it's incredible, Batman Reborn is looking great.

EDIT: Recently I also read Red Robin #1 and I must say this series is also looking awesome, I can't wait for the next number. :D
