The Chinatown Deathcloud Peril? I love that book! ^^ Also woot, Pat Savage. I hope that she does something cool, I heard that she tends to get into the way in the actual stories. Kinda puzzled by the anachronistic SWAT team guys though.

Doc Savage and The Spirit have joined forces at last – but can they beat the secrets behind the death of Doc’s father out of the Blackhawks? The Batman just might be two steps ahead of them all! And in the jungles of South America, it’s getting harder and harder for Rima to keep William Littlejohn alive as the forces of the Golden Tree close in...

Aw, don't go beating on the Blackhawks. :( Also, cool cover. And for the record, again, this is a version of the 1940s Batman who used guns, and in the preview issue showed that he hasn't actually killed anyone with them.

The terrifying Brother Night is making his play for San Fran, and the police force - including hunky detective Dale Colton - turn to Zee for help. But Brother Night is a whole new kind of criminal and if Zatanna thinks she can backwards-talk him down, then she's in over her top-hatted head!

There's only one thing to say - T'NOD SSIM TI!

Huh, so now Zatanna is sharing a city with the Teen Titans and Jack Knight, and in a different universe, the women about middleaged women with magic powers. Clammed I think it was called.

... I notice no 'X of X' note on the Doc Savage and Spirit solicits...

Dare I hope that means ongoing? (Probably...real question is whether I should get my hopes up about them lasting more than 10 issues...)

Why wouldn't that be necessary? That's your standard rule for a fight with Dick Grayson, really.

I don't think DIck is the guy Roy is beating up there. That dude's got brown hair, Dick's is black. I think the cover is supposed to be Batman stopping Arsenal from excessively beating the crap out of some random criminal.

Roy, what the hell are you doing on that cover? Are you trying to frot that guy to death? You look like you're about to turn into a werewolf. And why must you journey into the heart of darkness again? Can't you just be a badass father of the year instead of getting all gritty? Why must all arrows be doomed to shitty plot choices lately?

But yay, Zatanna!

I like the Zatanna a lot and although I'll wait for the trades the First Wave thing is starting to appeal - I've always found Doc Savage to be very cool.

Although - I have to say it because it bear repeating - with the May solicits out we are now 5 months into 2010 and still no sign of Miss Cassandra Cain, aka the girl Didio promised there were "big plans" for this year. Especially with the return of Bruce in full swing by May, the absence of Cass from the Bat-clan from that story is glaring. If they aren't going to do anything with her and make her into the Bat-version of Linda Danvers/Supergirl, they should just say so at this point.

Then again we also have an event called "Brightest Day" going on and DC's historically most "bright" characters (in terms of lightness) the Marvel Family doesn't seem to playing any part (meanwhile Deathstroke's villain team of Titans is being marketed as a Brightest Day title? WTF?). A wasted opportunity IMO.

I wonder with Geoff Johns in charge of creative at DC now if there will be any changes (it was Geoff after all who by all accounts wanted to return Billy and Mary Batson back to their old roles in the JSA arc with Black Adam/Isis and was vetoed by Didio and it was Geoff who ret-conned Beechan's Evil Cass with the whole Slade brainwashing drugs thing). Or it could be Didio is still calling the editorial shots just with a different title. I hope not.

YES. Agreed! (and it bears a lot of repeating, stupid DC...X0 )

I do have the suspicion that the 'big plans' that get occasionally mentioned for her is just to placate fans and'll stay in the plan phase indefinitely.

I agree. It's obvious by now that the whole "big plans" things really meant "no plans".

Accorinding to the May solicit of Batman & Robin, there may be a small pssibility of a Cass return. However, by 'fanfavorite' DC could mean either Cass, Jason, or The Joker for all we know.

The possibility of a Marvel Family relaunch still seems plausible. DC did mention Post-Blackest Night 'plans' for the Marvels and the "Brightest Day" event will be spanning a couple of months and has dropped hints of relaunching titles, such as Aquaman's.

Though I do understand where you are coming from. I don't have much faith in DC's handling of certain characters either...
