DCU IN 2011: THE LORD OF DARKNESS IN STARK BLACK AND WHITE

"The Rise of Eclipso" begins in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA issue 54 and, so far, we've kept the lid tight on the details of James Robinson's epic storyline.

But we can confirm, this one's got it all:

* Shade.

* Doomsday.

* Blue Lantern Saint Walker joins the League to ensure that all will be well.

* Alpha Lantern Boodikka and Supergirl on the trail of the Cyborg Superman.

* The return of one of the DCU's classic villains, Eclipso.

DCU in 2011: Superboy and Supergirl are going to have their hands full...

...with a lot more Doomsday than they bargained for.

As announced earlier this week, the Reign of Doomsday story will continue through SUPERMAN/BATMAN ANNUAL #5, as Supergirl must team up with Batman to try to stop Doomsday and Cyborg Superman from tearing them apart. The issue will hit in early April, written by James Robinson with art by Miguel Sepulveda.

THIS JUST HAPPENED: Arrow in the city, Grodd gone wild and more

First, let me get the obvious out of the way: There’s a ton of exciting stuff happening in the DCU.

Whether it’s Bruce Wayne returning, BRIGHTEST DAY’s ongoing mysteries and reveals or the edgy adventures of the SECRET SIX, nearly every title has its share of surprises and “Wow” pages and moments. And those pages include some great art. So why not put the spotlight on a few of those moments?

That’s the conceit behind “This Just Happened.” Simple, right? So, let’s grab this week’s stack and check out some of the cool moments or shots from the latest week of DCU books.

The aftermath of the JLA/JSA crossover hits

Obsidian at long last reunites with his father Alan Scott after the intense madness of the recent JLA/JSA crossover as both come to terms with what their family has just been through. Can these two heroes pick up the pieces and move on after the devastation they've just survived? Guest writer James Robinson pens the tale, with artist Jesus Merino.

JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #43 hits 9/29.
