Note that this is the last month before the whole year later jump. I noticed that Wonder Woman's title is done. I'm wondering if they will start a new number one and someone else will take the mantle of WW. Batman 650 looks really good with the Joker and The Red Hood. The Teen Titans Annual looks good also. I'm getting way to much this month. I have 20 titles and 4 trades in DC alone. This isn't counting Marvel or any of the others I get.

Art and cover by Georges Jeanty & Karl Story
Critically acclaimed novelist and screenwriter John Ridley (THE Authority: Human on the Inside, Three Kings) and artist Georges Jeanty (Majestic) offer a unique vision of U.S. history in THE AMERICAN WAY, a thrilling 8-issue miniseries! The 1960s were a decade of incredible change for America. It was a time of innocence. It was a time of optimism. It was a time of heroes.
In the early ’40s, the United States government hatched a plan to create the Civil Defense Corps: a group of “super-heroes” who could fight alien invasions, evil super-powered beings, and communism, all in front of an adoring public, courtesy of television. But that dream was far from reality by the ‘60s, as new C.D.C. Marketing Director Wesley Catham is about to discover. How far will America go to protect its dream of a better tomorrow?
