(THE WEEK) JULY 4-10, 2012 [update]

Action Comics #11
(Morrison, Morales)
- "The Death of Clark Kent" continues with the revelation of Superman's new alter-ego! And the back-up story by Sholly Fisch answers the question, "where did all those 'S' t-shirts come from?"

Animal Man #11
(Lemire, Pugh)
- The war between against the Rot was supposed to start last month, but it was more of a prelude than anything. Hopefully, this conclusion of "Extinction Is Forever" will bring about the actual warring!

Avengers vs. X-Men #7 of 12
(Fraction, Coipel)
- Matt Fraction picks up where Jonathan Hickman left us last month, with "No More Avengers!"

Before Watchmen: Ozymandias #1 of 4
(Wein, Lee)
- I'm actually extra-excited for this series, as Ozy' was the villain of Moore's original Watchmen - it will be interesting to see how his past is framed.

Dial H #3
(Mieville, Santolouco)
- Nelson's situation gets a little bit better when he gains an ally! Check out one of the best series going on right now!

Earth 2 #3
(Robinson, Scott)
- Last month's thrilling cliffhanger started the cogs turning for the revamped origins of Earth 2 Green Lantern!

Justice League International #11
(Jurgens, Lopresti)
- As JLI winds down, "Breakdown" comes to a conclusion with some deaths, apparently! Let's see how DC plans on dismantling one of the best teams of the 'New 52'... :(

4-Sentence Reviews

The Cape: 1969 #1
(Hill, Ciaramella)
- Last years fantastic The Cape series surprised everyone with it's dark take on the concept of gaining powers and deciding how to use them. Now, Joe Hill takes us back in time to the Cape's origins in the thick of the Vietnam War!

Detective Comics #11
(Daniels, Benes)
- Tony Daniels announced his stepping fown from Detective Comics after issue 12, so I'll be interested to see how he handles Hypnotic and the connection to Wayne Industries before his run ends!

Powers: FBI #1
- I've always been intrigued by Powers, but never took the plunge into the ongoing series. Now that it's getting a reboot at the federal level, I'd like to give it a shot and see how I like it. Who knows - maybe it'll inspire me to read the first three volumes!

Red Lanterns #11
(Milligan, Sepulveda)
- I have really covered Red Lanterns before - mostly because I cover every other GL title - but things are starting to move a little more, and I want to take a look at how things will unfold as "Rise of the Third Army" gets closer and closer.

World's Finest #3
(Levitz, Perez)
- Paul Levitz brings us a big more history from Huntress and Power Girls' last five years on Earth Prime, along with their hunt for the mysterious assassin who came through the boom tube all those years ago!
