I eagerly anticipate the next issues of Green Lantern, Action, Detective and Brightest Day each month as much as the next guy, but I'll take a few paragraphs here to talk about a book that's quietly snuck its way to the top of my read pile each week it's been released.

It’s a CRISIS-level issue of LEGACIES

Writer Len Wein continues to pair with an A-list assortment of artists as he chronicles the history of the DC Universe in the pages of LEGACIES. This month, Wein teams up with not only George Perez, but Walt Simonson. Not too shabby, huh?

The first of a series of universe-spanning Crises looms, as red skies hang over the entire DC Universe. How will the heroes of Earth defend the planet against the threat?

DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES #5 hits Wednesday.
