    Action Comics (2011) #35 - I am hoping the aftermath of Doomed is not a crossover so I can avoid getting anything else.
    Detective Comics (2011) #35 - Surprise creative team, a break for the other team. I was upset at first, but maybe I will be pleased.
    Justice League (2011) #34 - Finally decided to make up this month, eh?
    Justice League (2011) #35 - Amazo virus looks to show the power of non-super-powered members.
    New 52 Futures End (2014) #22 - Is the Masked Superman....Shazam.....or Black Adam?
    New 52 Futures End (2014) #23
    New 52 Futures End (2014) #24
    New 52 Futures End (2014) #25
    New 52 Futures End (2014) #26
    Superman (2011) #35 - Looking forward to seeing more of this.
    Batman (2011) #35 - Endgame huh? Why do I get the feeling Batman and Robin is the main continuity series?
    Wonder Woman (2011) #35 - Finally the end. A decent run. I am looking forward to Finch art, however.
    Aquaman (2011) #35 - I love me some Pelletier art and Parker is doing well here.
    Flash (2011) #35 - Finally the end of this. Maybe we get to see what the point was?
    New Gods: Godhead (2014) #1 - A new, new, new Green Lantern event, OK, whatever. At least this one looks good.
    Green Lantern (2011) #35 - At least it looks better than GLC
    Green Lantern Corps (2011) #35 - What I consider to be the worst of the lot.
    Green Lantern: New Guardians (2011) #35 - The most interesting Green Lantern title, wish it was the main title.
    Red Lanterns (2011) #35 - Guy as red has turned out surprisingly good/interesting. Especially now that the Milligan albatross is gone.
    Sinestro (2014) #6 - I am interested to see what this series has to offer.

    A good month for DC. No final issues and a bunch of new series launching. Their talent roster seems pretty thin though. I think the move to the west coast is going to be a huge talent drain on them. That can either be harmful to them with no real named talent or it can be an opportunity for new talent to shine through.

    So we should be getting a Bryan Hitch cover for Green Arrow #35 instead of the Garry Brown one shown?

    I'm going to have to adjust my pull list. Lots of books here grabbing my attention...

    I'm going to try to read all of the weeklies (you think I'm going to be forced to buy Earth 2 as well?), but besides that, my for sure list that I'll buy without a doubt:

    Batgirl #35
    Batman #35
    Coffin Hill #12
    Gotham Academy #1
    Grayson #3
    Harley Quinn #11
    Harley Quinn Annual #1
    Justice League #34
    Justice League #35
    Justice League United #5
    Justice League United Annual #1
    Star Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie #3
    Superman #35

    I'm going to try to at least read the rest of the new creative team changes and new series as well, if at the store or from my friends' copies.

    Things I've noticed:

    Amazo virus?!
    Red Hood is being written by Will Pfiefer... possibly.
    Every damn Green Lantern title is getting pulled into yet another event. Come on! I want to read Sinestro in peace ya jerks!
    Machine Kingdom? Would that be an extension of the Metal Kingdom then you think?
    Yet again, American Vampire is missing in action.

    Also, best cover and probably the biggest thing I'm excited about that's not a new creative team or new book:



    This is going to be so awesome.

    Oh man. 45 books in one month for me. I'll get to save up for October due to me only getting like 10 books total in September.

    Everything seems to be six-issue story arcs, which would all end in March 2015, just in time for the April/May Band-Aid event. It will be interesting to see if any of these new series return in June 2015.

    What's the chance I can pick up the Earth-2 weekly without it ending up crossing over with the Futures End weekly/Justice League?

    Anyways, I'll be definitely getting:
    Multiversity : The Just #1
    Deathstroke #1
    Flash #35
    Batman #35
    Detective Comics #35
    Batman/Superman #15
    Batman Eternal #26-30
    Superman #35
    Action Comics #35

    Every DC comic gets at least 8 issues and see a few these easily sticking around for a while.

    Well, I'll more than likely go broke by the end of October.

    I'm surprised there haven't been any news about Superboy. Maybe he'll come with the Legion in Justice League United?

    World's End #1 is really $2.99? For 48 pages? (Minus ads, of course)

    Really excited to see Clay Mann on these solicitations. Hopefully they'll have him do interior work in the following month or two.

    Not Black Adam, he's still in the Phantom Zone. Shazam may be dead on though.

    A lively month to be sure and making some in-roads in reviving my declining interest in the DCU :-

    Earth 2: Worlds' End #1-4
    Earth 2 #27
    Multiversity: The Just #1
    Justice League United Annual #1
    Batman #35
    Wonder Woman #35
    Worlds' Finest #27

    I hope they make a good fist of the LSH re-introduction.

    Yeah but all of these series are going on hold for two months. They may not all return. And some creators are only signed on for one six issue arc (for example, Genevieve Valentine on Catwoman).

    Well as good as Swamp Thing is, the sales suggests it won't make it past then.
    Constantine and Batwoman as well. Lack of tie-ins to these titles suggest they have been abandoned (usually tie-ins/crossovers are used to buoy lagging titles - such is the case for the Green Lantern titles this month).
    Catwoman could be another.

    I would say Worlds' Finest, but they are making attempts to keep it afloat.
    Red Hood and the Outlaws is another candidate.

    Supergirl and Green Arrow would then be the next dominoes to fall if sales trends maintain as they are.

    I don't see Swamp Thing and Constantine ending within a year or so. Especially with Constantine coming out with a television show this fall.
