Newsarama has the solicits for most of the Justice League related items for July 2012.

Some stuff feel like the old DCU "telephoning it in" work, and there is this particular.... piece.... that continues to reflect the darker trend DCnU is taking.



... when I pee.

I know that we do not criticize artist outright at S_D, but my disapproval of this newest incarnation of Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern, well, I hate to say it... it's like visual gonorrhea.

That image above is the same guy who inspired Superman to be a superhero?

And here I was complaining about the lantern shaped body armor last year.... I take that back now.

I like that the older heroes have more old-timey or circus-like outfits, as opposed to the newfangled armor or capes or whatever else that younger heroes wear. I think it creates a nice sense of time and character, rather than giving them all the same armor-like costumes.

I'm with you. I mean, consider the Red Bee. (The old one, not the lady in the red armor.) Whatever else you say about his outfit, it was original.

Oh, man, I love the Red Bee's outfit. It's endearingly goofy. GIANT POOFY SLEEVES AND STRIPEY LEGGINGS.

(Also, I had no idea that there was a second Red Bee.)
