USA Today reports that Jeff Lemire will be writing Justice League of Canada United with Mike McKone on art. The cover is very cool. I love Adam Strange’s New 52 look! Green Arrow looks a little Conor Hawkish for some reason. And Stargirl is looking very blue. Lemire description of the book is very interesting.  

It’s very much a swashbuckling, world-jumping space adventure.

This looks like one of the many changes to the Justice League books that will be around post Forever Evil.

Batman/Superman #2 has a whole lot of Earth 2 goodness.

imageCome on Steve.

Justice League Dark #22

imageI could read a whole series of stories about John Constantine making a horrible Captain Marvel…. ahem…. Shazam. I’ve never read Marvelman… ahem… Miracle Man but that is all I thought of in Constantine #5

Newsarama has list of parallel universes they want to see added to the DC Multiverse. One of the earths is the original Earth-Two. A place where the JSA characters live in their original form. I’d like that. I’d love to see and Earth 2/Earth-Two crossover.
One earth I always wanted to see was a ’90s earth. I think Grant Morrison is doing something like that in Multiveristy. I’d love to see a Justice League comprised of Steel, Azrael, Artemis, Dark Flash (Walter West), Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner), hook-arm Aquaman, Green Arrow (Connor Hawke), Damage, Zauriel, Oracle, Tomorrow Woman, Aztek, and Bloodwynde in a Phantom Stranger like roll. 
What other earths would you like to see?

Thoughts on Wednesday’s Book

Just as fair warning there are a few spoilers if you have not read Earth 2 #13.

imageJames Robinson is doing a great job reworking and remixing characters in Earth 2. This issue introduces Captain Steel. He really pulls from all the past Steel characters when creating his story. One of my favorite notes in the story is that he makes a parallel between Captain Steel and Cyborg’s origins. It makes me excited for the inevitable crossover.

Hey, when did Kendra change her name to Shiera? Do you think we’ll see her link to the main earth’s Hawkman? Could we see a love that reaches across time streams?

Also the last page of the issue was shocking and awesome. It reminded me of (MAJOR SPOILERS) this article.

James Robinson will be missed on this book.
