The Flash returns to The CW for a third season tomorrow with a premiere episode entitled “Flashpoint.” Of course, as DC fans know, that title is a reference to the 2011 miniseries of the same name written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Andy Kubert.
2012 will bring the highly anticipated release of BATMAN: EARTH ONE, an original graphic novel retelling the Batman legend in a contemporary setting. The collaboration between New York Times bestselling author Geoff Johns and critically acclaimed artist Gary Frank, BATMAN: EARTH ONE also marks the first original graphic novel for Johns – who is best known for his work on fan favorite ongoing series for DC Comics. Together, they will present a new vision of Batman – a flawed and fallible hero who isn’t yet the master of Gotham City’s shadows.
Coming in September 2012, ABSOLUTE GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS WAR will collect the story of Sinestro’s bid for totalitarian control of the galaxy – giving the arc the Absolute treatment with a gorgeous, over-sized hardcover presentation. Collecting GREEN LANTERN 21-25, GREEN LANTERN CORPS 14-19 and GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS SPECIAL 1, ABSOLUTE GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS WAR features the writing of critically acclaimed, fan favorite authors Geoff Johns, Dave Gibbons and Peter Tomasi, with art by Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis, Patrick Gleason and Angel Unzueta.

Hitting comic book stores this Wednesday, JUSTICE LEAGUE #3 will see the introduction of Wonder Woman and Aquaman to the team that will become the World’s Greatest Superheroes. But these are not the seasoned heroes of their respective eponymous titles; they are younger, more arrogant. In short, they’re not team players – yet.
