""The New 52 was about showing the new world. Now we're just expanding on that world and furthering the story," says Bob Harras, DC Entertainment's editor in chief.

Make that plural "worlds." DC is bringing back its concept of parallel Earths in two of the books. Earth 2 features the return of the fan-favorite Justice Society, while Worlds' Finest stars two superheroines, Huntress and Power Girl.

In addition, G.I. Combat will offer a rotating roster of creative teams and rebooted tales of past war comics such as The Haunted Tank and The Unknown Soldier, while The Ravagers follows four teen superheroes on the run from an evil organization.

Morrison's Batman Incorporated pits the popular Caped Crusader and his army of global crime fighters against former flame Talia al Ghul, with their son Damian (who also is the current Batman sidekick, Robin) caught in the middle.

"It's like Kramer vs. Kramer, but they've got thermonuclear capability," Morrison says.

And instead of one superhero, MiƩville will create several every month in Dial H, about a guy who finds an old dial that gives him different powers every time he uses it.

Nine of DC's "New 52" issues were among the 10 best-selling comics of 2011, according to Diamond Comics Distributors.

"Part of the sign of the New 52 growing up is that it can afford to stretch its wings a little bit and so some things that are a bit more left field," MiƩville says. "There's room for a lot of different inflections in this vocabulary.""

So, JSA + James Robinson + Nicola Scott = Yay!

Batman Inc. should have Cass in (they SAID it should) so also yay.

Dial H for Hero could be interesting.

GI Combat might be interesting, though it seems to be more Weird War than more of a straight war comic.

And Ravagers... kind of sounds like Gail Simone's Gen13 run combined with Runaways, though it might be interesting. Though I'm getting Cass vibes from it, as I think I remember Gail saying she wanted to use them at some point.

For legality, here's a bit of one of the Dial H covers,



EDIT: Seems that the six new titles are meant to be replacing: BLACKHAWKS, HAWK AND DOVE, MEN OF WAR, MISTER TERRIFIC, O.M.A.C. and STATIC SHOCK.

No, please, don't cancel Hawk and Dove. Where will we get out Rob Liefeld art from now.

Liefeld, as much as I know what the OP was joking, actually suggested he might be doing something involving Lobo on Twitter a couple of weeks back, I believe.

Which just has me ready to fucking explode, I'm that pissed off. Lobo's a parody, for starters, and deserves so, so so so so much better than Liefeld. Can't we get Bisley back doing the Main Man if DC want to bring him back?

No, not Lobo. He can't have Lobo. Or the Dolphins. Good God, could you imagine the horror of what the dolphins would look like.

well, they don't have feet so he won't have to hide them and they don't have arms so he can't give the shoulder pads....
