In the spirit of my favorite time of the year…here are a few things that scare me. THE FLAMINGO. This guy has death and danger written all over him. He rides a motorcycle and rips people’s faces off for fun. Oh yeah, and to top it all off, he’s dressed head-to-toe in pink. What’s not to be afraid of? If Batman & Robin thought they had their hands full with Red Hood & Scarlet, well, they haven’t seen anything yet. Check out the Flamingo in all of his pink and face-ripping glory in BATMAN & ROBIN #6.

Think humans and Kryptonians are the only two races in our solar system? Wrong. Jemm, Son of Saturn, ruler of the super-powered Saturnian race, arrives in Kandor demanding answers to New Krypton's recent actions – answers he intends to get even if he has to fight his way through Commander Kal-El and the entire Kryptonian army. Not the recipe for a friendly sitdown, eh? All this and a Mark Buckingham variant cover, courtesy of writers James Robinson and Greg Rucka, along with artists Pete Woods and Ron Randall.
Ready for a Lobo tale like no other? Is that possible, you ask? Well, you've never seen Lobo like this before. And by "like this" I mean written by heavy metal icon Scott Ian, with art by the legendary Sam Kieth. Got your attention? Good. Lobo's not shy when it comes to make enemies. The Main Man could probably care less about who likes or dislikes him. When you live your life as loud, loose and violent as Lobo, you might pick up an enemy or 12 along the way. An enemy like, well, Satan himself. Doesn't get any bigger bad than that, does it?

But is that a positive, or has our hero hurtled into a more dangerous situation? Find out by picking up the third issue of the new series, from writer Keith Giffen and artist Howard Porter.
