Next year's "Reign of Doomsday" storyline is still shrouded in mystery. We've done a couple teases here on The Source, and here's another: this great splash by Ed Benes from STEEL #1!
Excited? Me too.
A hero is often defined by his or her villains. And few heroes have villains as cool and colorful and flat out weird as the Flash.
The Rogues define the Flash and he defines them: Mirror Master, Heat Wave, Weather Wizard, the Trickster and most especially the two Captains Captain Cold and Captain Boomerang.
What better way to start a week than with some variant covers? First up, we have a terrifyingly awesome cover by Gene Ha for BATMAN & ROBIN #19. Next, the indomitable Dustin Nguyen gives us an iconic, powerful cover for Jeff Lemire's SUPERBOY #3.
For R.E.B.E.L.S. #23, writer Tony Bedard and artists Claude St. Aubin and Scott Hanna bring in a special guest star: none other than Green Lantern John Stewart!
He has a "R" on his shirt, but he's not Robin. Who's the mysterious kid in the Batcave with the orange hair? Is it Clayface's kid? Maybe Joker's son? Hmmmm....
Batman's a detective. Aww, yeah, he'll figure it out in TINY TITANS/LITTLE ARCHIES issue 3, out Wednesday.

Poison Ivy rarely leaves Gotham City, and yet here she is in Smallville, just as the town's vegetation is out of control. Think she might be in town to actually help Superboy get to the bottom of this mystery? Yeah, color me skeptical, too.
Issue 2 of SUPERBOY lands on Wednesday.
It may or may not be good to be the King, but it's definitely an amazing time to be a Batman fan. Month in and month out, the writers and artists are knocking out some great books with a truly distinctive look and feel to them.
