DC
52 Week #50 $2.50
An especially noteworthy issue of 52 due to its involvement in the impromptu World War III “event”, which I’ll explore below… with any luck, this issue will read just like a regular issue of 52 without too much WWIII retcon baggage…

Aquaman Sword Of Atlantis #51 $2.99
Army At Love #2 $2.99
Batman And The Mad Monk TP $14.99
Batman Sunday Classics 1943-1946 HC $14.95
Batman The Dailies 1943-1946 HC $20.00
Birds Of Prey #105 $2.99
Brave And The Bold Vol 3 #3 $2.99
Canon Vol 1 TP $9.99
DMZ #18 $2.99
Ex Machina #27 $2.99
Flash The Fastest Man Alive #11 $2.99
Tony S. Daniel’s first issue and the continuing of the ramp-up towards the special storyline apparently so important that DC announced a returnability incentive to make sure retailers have enough copies. Which is pretty rare, and a fairly tacit statement that a major event will be occurring in this book, likely involving the return of Wally West (Guggenheim swears up and down he’s heard nothing about any return of Barry). The downside: The book, unfortunately, just isn’t really good…

Hellblazer #231 $2.99
Hellblazer Reasons To Be Cheerful TP $14.99
Justice League Of America Vol 2 #8 $2.99
The beginning of the “Lightning Saga” crossover with Justice Society, also involving the Legion of Super-Heroes and likely to play a huge role into whatever big event DC is leading into. Of course, we still don’t have any details on what that is, but the fact that this involves the PRE-CRISIS Legion is a pretty heavy point towards “multiversal fun.”

Legion Of Super-Heroes In The 31st Century #1 $2.25
Manhunter Vol 4 #30 $2.99
The last issue of the… wait, nope, pranked again!

Nightwing Annual #2 $3.99
Recipe For Gertrude Vol 4 TP $9.99
Robin Vol 4 #161 $2.99
Shadowpact #12 $2.99
Showcase Presents Superman Vol 3 TP $16.99
Spirit Vol 6 #5 $2.99
Superman Batman #34 $2.99
Testament #17 $2.99
Texas Chainsaw Massacre #6 $2.99
Wonder Woman The Greatest Stories Ever Told TP $19.99
World War III Part 1 A Call To Arms $2.50
World War III Part 2 The Valiant $2.50
World War III Part 3 Hell Is For Heroes $2.50
World War III Part 4 United We Stand $2.50

This is an interesting project. Basically, DC realized that 52 didn’t come close to explaining most characters’ changes in One Year Later, so they shoehorned them all into week 50 and created four one-shots (or a four-issue miniseries?) to explain them all in that context. I can see why DC thought this was a good decision since flashbacks have been hampering Judd Winick’s books lately, but the biggest question is: Will these books be any GOOD?
