It’s the night before you leave for Chicago. You’re packed and doing your final check. You have your camera, your registration info, your perfectly preserved copy of the original SWAMP THING #7 for Len Wein to sign…but have you thought about your shoes?
Hal Jordan and Sinestro continue to work together (or try to, at any rate) to escape from the enigmatic Indigo Tribe, but assuming their cosmic conflict doesn’t bring about the end of the universe, that’s just the start of what we have lined up for you on Wednesday. Batgirl gets ugly with Grotesque, Frankenstein goes hunting for his son, BATMAN AND ROBIN wraps up its first arc, and we get our first bloody taste of The Culling with a prelude story in SUPERBOY.
Following the suicides of his acolytes, The Inquisitor’s plan to unleash hell on Earth is one step closer to being executed. Together, the Shade, La Sangre and Montpellier must stop him before the lives of the twenty-five innocent people he’s captured are lost. And when The Inquisitor reveals the truth about his enigmatic identity, the trio will need to find one last puzzle piece to defeat him.
“The Culling” crossover event is coming this May – but what is The Culling? What is N.O.W.H.E.R.E., and how will it threaten the heroes and would-be heroes of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52?

The first four key characters that comprise NATIONAL COMICS include ETERNITY, MADAME X, ROSE AND THORN, and LOOKER. Each character will have a stand-alone issue.
Today the White House hosted its annual Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn. We weren’t invited (thanks to an incident last year involving lawn darts and David Axelrod — who’s recovering nicely, we’re happy to report) but many children were. And plenty of unlucky kids rolled their eggs off course into the treacherous fringes of the lawn — where they made some pretty startling discoveries.
