In the five years that the Justice League has been a team, Green Arrow has never once been a member. And he intends to rectify that right here, right now! One member against his candidacy: Aquaman!
Plus, in "The Curse of Shazam" part 2, Billy arrives in his new foster home just as an ancient evil is uncovered halfway across the world.
This issue is also offered as a special combo pack edition, polybagged with a redemption code for a digital download of this issue.

Ah, it's because you're both blond isn't it Arthur? You're worrying people would get you two confused! Also, can we stop with the covers with a partially crossed out super team on them? It's becoming kind of a cliche as I'm sure I've seen it lots of places elsewhere. Or is Ollie trying to say that he's trying to join a Justice League where he's the only member? Which... sounds kind of in character, to be honest.

ALL-STAR WESTERN #8

Cover by LADRONN
On sale APRIL 25 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T+
Amadeus Arkham has been arrested in a New Orleans opium den! Jonah Hex has joined an anarchist group called the August 7! Nighthawk and Cinnamon are nowhere to be found, and they’re the ones who dragged Hex and Arkham into this conflict in the first place! But someone must have a plan, right? Right??
Plus: Being trained by a samurai in the desert might have been a strange beginning for a cowgirl vigilante, but Nighthawk and Cinnamon are in for an even stranger twist as they search for a way out of this trap!

This is continuing to be the Best Book Ever!, I see. :)

BATMAN: ARKHAM UNHINGED #1

Based on a teleplay by MARLY HALPERN-GRASER

Spinning directly out of the hit video game BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, this new series explores the world behind the game in stories focusing on both heroes and villains and how their roles in ARKHAM CITY. A prequel to the game created with the developer, Rocksteady, this first issue features content previously available only as a digital released and explores the Catwoman/Two-Face rivalry and how it leads them into the clutches of Hugo Strange.

Looking forward to this, as I'm an admitted fan of the Arkham City universe despite its flaws. And yikes, that's a pretty Selina there on the cover, unlike the kind of scary one in the Catwoman books at the moment.

The Shade, with his new allies La Sangre and Montpelier, must stop The Inquisitor from enacting his doomsday plan to literally bring hell to Earth. Plus: your first glimpse of the men responsible for the creation of The Shade!

A sad thought occurs: This series by April is nearing its end! :(

SAUCER COUNTRY #2

Written by PAUL CORNELL
Art and cover by RYAN KELLY
On sale APRIL 11 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • MATURE READERS
Arcadia Alvarado is the Governor of New Mexico, she’s running for President, and she just released a bombshell: She was abducted by aliens. As her campaign tries to deal with this startling new information, they must seek help from a disgraced Harvard UFO-ologist who might not be completely sane. The West Wing meets The X-Files in an adventure through the strange and fascinating world of UFO mythology.

Still hyped for this series. If it's in keeping with his prose work it should be good, as it's obviously not going to be in the same style as Action Comics, Dr Who or Knight and Squire. Just as long as it's not as excessive as some of the parts of British Summertime.

Kind of disappointed that it seems that they've officially stopped collecting Sandman Mystery Theatre though. :( Seriously, it's been like two years since the last one, and the series isn't completely over yet.

So, Arkham City Unhinged costs a dollar more than it did digitally?

Makes it more in keeping with the Batman movies though, no?

Well, I can imagine people mistaking the way Aquaman and G.A. both currently look... at least, can't they give Ollie is beard back?!

How would Black Canary make it easier to tell the difference between them?
