Tuesday Roundup: Batman. Superman. Aquaman. (Yes, They Do All Belong in the Same Breath!)

It’s the Monday after Comic-Con, and much of the DC Comics office is working furiously to respond to all the emails that came in over the weekend (we’ll see which arrives first—the bottom of their inbox or Labor Day). However, that’s not about to stop us from bringing you our weekly collection of new comic previews. Not on a week like this. A week that brings with it the third chapter of “Trinity War” (in Justice League Dark #22), the second issue of Batman/Superman, and an icy new issue of Aquaman.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (2013)

Based on the acclaimed miniseries by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox finds our world turned upside down as one of Earth's greatest super heroes--the Flash--wakes up devoid of his super powers.

When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline.
