Tuesday Roundup: Batman, JLA, Suicide Squad and More

Tuesday Roundup: Batman, JLA, Suicide Squad and More

By Tim Beedle Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Now that you’ve enjoyed the free comics you’ve snagged this weekend, you’re probably excited for what’s next. Well, friends and fans, you’re in the right place. The Tuesday Roundup is all about what happens next in the pages of your favorite DC comic books.

So what’s happening this week? Ales Kot and Patrick Zircher take over Suicide Squad as the new series creative team, promising a run that’s equal parts horror, humor and nothing-to-lose action. Batman teams up with someone you’ll never believe in the title’s final present-day issue before next month kicks off the massive “Zero Year.” JLA returns with a third issue that suggests this team may be falling apart before it’s even begun. Batman teams up with Jason Todd (someone who’s had some experience with this whole “Robin dying” thing) and questions Carrie Kelley in this month’s Batman and Red Hood. Peter Tomasi and Fernando Pasarin wrap up their twenty-issue run on Green Lantern Corps with an unforgettable final issue.

All that, plus new issues of Constantine, Katana, Superboy, Threshold, Smallville Season 11 and more. Unlike this weekend’s comics, these ones may not be free, but we’ll make certain you get your money’s worth.
