Lousy Black Canary continuing my Negative Nancy streak........ unlike Jim, I couldn't stand this take on Dinah and am a little pissed that DC would allow yet another strong female character be downgraded to fighting lesser foes while being obsessed with the limelight. These new takes on the characters will someday be known as the Selfie Age of comics and I want no parts of it.
I am not a huge Constantine fan and this preview had me a bit confused. I like Riley Rossimo's art, just not on this book. Why rebrand this book as "The Hellblazer" and have this art style? I did like the story enough and Constantine is a jerk like he's supposed to be. I wasn't excited for this book before the sneak peek and I'm still not excited. Also, I wish Constantine would have said "arse" early on.
The tone of this sneak peek is spot on asshole Constantine and I loved it, but the art really threw me off. Hopefully I can get past the art in the future because I'm really digging Tynion and Doyle's writing here and hope that it remains this strong.
Holy crap, this one took me by surprise. I don't know what is going on, but David F. Walker has my attention. I hope we get some more Shazam/Cyborg action in the upcoming monthly because I love those two together and the art in this preview was really, really good. The only thing that bothered me about this one was why were Critters attacking the Justice League in the first place?
I've been wanting a Cyborg book since the New 52 began and this preview just makes me wish we would have gotten it sooner. Yeah, I'm more of a fan of the way Cyborg looked before his Forever Evil overhaul, but I'll go with this sleeker look........ I just hope that it remains as is and doesn't become the New Teen Titans look. So yeah, obviously everything here looked great and I'm totally interested in seeing what's going down with Vic.
Earth 2: Society
The heroes of this new Earth battle over a mysterious device that could remake their old world or destroy the new one!
Of all the books coming out in June, this is the one I was most curious about. Convergence's ending sure didn't spoil anything because this one took me by surprise. I expected a hands across Earth 2 book where everyone gathered for the good of the Society, but Daniel Wilson upped the action and tension. However, I thought that Telos sent the planet back to it's own universe...what's with this binary star stuff? I thought Jorge Jimenez's art was great and I already love Doctor Impossible.
I love the Earth 2 characters........... I loved the New 52 Earth 2 book......... but after World's End I think that love has to be earned back and even though we're getting our characters back to some sort of normal status quo, I think the lasting effects of World's End are going to be lingering too much for me to enjoy this book as much as I'd like. Hopefully I'm wrong about as I am about most things in life and I can get back on the Earth 2 trolley, but as of right now, I'm just not looking forward to it.
Harley being Harley and it's just where we expected her to be. Nothing really to say about this one. If you liked Harley before Convergence, you'll like it now and most likely be drooling over getting back to your regularly scheduled Harley story.
A traitor lurks within the Sinestro Corps, and it's one of Sinestro's closest confidantes! But treachery is only part of a day's work for the leader of the fear Lanterns, along with saving the last of his race and instilling peace in a universe gone lawless. But what other clandestine objective is Sinestro looking to fulfill?
Yea, not too many surprises here. If you were on board with Sinestro before (which I was), you still will be. If you were not a fan up until now, well... This preview looks fantastic and Sinestro is certainly a badass, but I liked getting the Sinestro Corps lineup rundown the best. With Hal Jordan on the run and the Corps "lost", I'm still looking forward to this one going forward.
While Sinestro is keeping on keeping on, what this sneak peek really makes me want to see is the fate of the Green Lantern Corps. Like Harley, we've got business as usual with Sinestro and his Corps, but between what's going down with Hal in Green Lantern and what's going on in Green Lantern: Lost Army, we better get some goddamn explanations about what's going down. Really, you can't go wrong with Sinestro and this sneak peek just affirms that.
These sneak peeks have really been dominated by "The Truth" and while I've seen some people complain that they don't want another crossover like Doomed, this already feels bigger...and better. Of all of The Truth previews, this is the most screwed up and exciting. I want to know what the hell is going on and the ending has to be a ruse, right? Please tell me that Supes is just joking.
More shit going down with "The Truth" and as much as I hate crossover story lines, there hasn't been a sneak peek of this story that has let me down. I need to see more of this strange ass Superman and how his relationship is going to be affected........... Plus that cliffhanger really grabs you by the boo boo.

Barry Allen is being hunted by Professor Zoom and his new team of villains.
The Flash is one of my favorite heroes and I have really enjoyed Robert Venditti and Van Jensen's current run. Those of you who read our blog will know that one of the main reasons, however, is Brett Booth's art. I'm a fanboy and this sneak peek will show everybody why. This preview feels a bit off at first because of how basic it is. Everybody knows who the Flash is, right? Then you realize that class is in for Professor Zoom and his evil pupils and I cannot wait for this book.
Who doesn't love the Flash? Am I right? Just one of the greatest superheroes out there, but besides for the inclusion of Professor Zoom and debuting our heroes new costume, there isn't much to this sneak peek.......... and even with that, I wasn't really fond of the new costume. It doesn't really matter though because the Flash will just keep on being the Flash and we'll love it.

A new team of teens coordinate to take down a weapons shipment at the docks and spread the word that there's a new "Robin" in town.
I don't get it. Who is this book for? I get that DC thinks that the kids love their texting so putting it in the books will grab their attention, but I think this is grabbing for fools gold. When I was a kid (a long time ago), I gravitated to media that went above and beyond what was happening to me. I wanted to read/listen/watch things that spoke to me, but I really wanted an escape. Luke Skywalker was a restless kid who wanted more in life, but he was also a future Jedi who got to fly in space ships and use a lightsaber. I guess I'm saying that I wanted to become Luke (or Robin), I didn't want him to become me. This book feels like the later and I don't like it.
