Tuesday Roundup: Superman Gets One Lex of a Problem

Tuesday Roundup: Superman Gets One Lex of a Problem

By Tim Beedle Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Hey, did you know that November is Ridiculously Awesome New Comics Month? Okay, no, not in any official capacity. But who needs official recognition when you have the next chapter of Forever Evil (which you can see brought to over-the-top life in this week’s episode of “DC All Access), the return of Superman Unchained, Arrow’s Diggle meeting up with Oliver’s comic book counterpart in GREEN ARROW #25, and Batman teaming up with everyone’s favorite ghost-hunting, snack-loving dog in SCOOBY-DOO TEAM UP #1!

Come on, you know you’re curious about that one! And while you’re at it, why not check out the debut of bestselling My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic writer Heather Nuhfer on Scooby’s ongoing series in SCOOBY-DOO, WHERE ARE YOU #39? Dogs are kind of like ponies, right?

But back to super heroes. So far in Superman Unchained, we’ve watched the Man of Steel trade punches with falling satellites and the powerful new super-villain, Wraith. But this week’s can’t-miss new issue marks the emergence of a familiar and all-too-unfriendly face, Lex Luthor, who really compounds Superman’s problems…and reveals a surprising gift at creating origami super heroes.

You won’t want to miss it, or any of this week’s other new titles, including new issues of Batman/Superman, Earth 2, Batman: Black and White, Green Lantern, Detective Comics, Swamp Thing and Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger!
