TUESDAY ROUNDUP: May 1st

By Tim Beedle Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

That sound you hear is the hushed, excited murmur of thousands of DC Comics fans counting down the minutes until tomorrow. Why? Well, the Second Wave of THE NEW 52 begins with the first issues of EARTH TWO, DIAL H, WORLD’S FINEST and G.I. COMBAT. “Night of the Owls” continues in BATWING and DETECTIVE COMICS. "The Culling" begins in TEEN TITANS ANNUAL. And that’s to say nothing about the release of the first New 52 trades: JUSTICE LEAGUE VOL. 1: ORIGIN and ANIMAL MAN VOL. 1: THE HUNT. Unfortunately, we can’t make tomorrow arrive any sooner, but we can make the wait a little easier by rounding up this week’s new comics previews.
