Welcome to the first installment of "This Just Happened," a feature we'll throw out here on the blog semi-regularly. It's pretty self-explanatory. We'll spotlight a key scene or moment in a recent DCU book and with some level of spoiler warning, show some cool art from said book. So, let's get started, shall we?
Well, you'll have to wait until 8/19 for more clues. But, we do have a first look at interiors from the first issue, by writer Bryan Q. Miller and artist Lee Garbett, plus a variant cover by Cully Hamner. Nice way to start the week, huh?
Start your guessing!

Writer Bryan Q. Miller (Smallville), who’ll be kicking off the new BATGIRL series in no time, continues his jaunt through the Teen Titans world, as the team tries to rescue Wonder Girl from the new Fearsome Five, as the Calculator enacts his revenge on the team for not protecting his daughter. Plus, writer Sean McKeever and artist Yildiray Cinar continue to chronicle the solo adventures of everyone’s favorite one-eyed teen, Ravager, in the issue’s second feature. What more do you need?
