In the wake of her run-in with Batman and the loss of someone very dear to her, Catwoman turns over a new leaf. With a new attitude, a new partner and a new game plan, she embarks on a new journey: She’s stealing hot cars. The competition isn’t too happy about it, and the Gotham PD are that much closer to nailing her. There’s only one way out: Drive really, really fast.

Hur hur hur, "GCPD are that much closer to nailing her". Also, what's up with her eyes? She's got some serious Tophness going on there.

Jonah Hex tracks the kidnapper Thurston Moody to New Orleans in pursuit of his bounty. But he and Amadeus Arkham find New Orleans under attack by the August 7, a group of anti-immigrant, steampunk terrorists. Only the renowned Nighthawk and Cinnamon stand between the terrorists and the immigrant workforce of this city. Hex consents to put the bounty aside (for the moment) to help his friends and finds himself in a battle to the death! Plus: Some of the best love stories are tempered with revenge, especially in the case of Nighthawk and Cinnamon.

Interesting character design. I shall name her... Knifeboot!

While dealing with their complicated relationship, Hank and Dawn face an attack from a mysterious hunter who reveals a larger conspiracy involving the heroic duo! Legendary creator Rob Liefeld continues his solo run on HAWK AND DOVE as writer and artist with this explosive issue!

PffffHHAHAHAHAHAHA! Look at him! If Deadpool is meant to be Liefeld's version of Deathstroke, what exactly is THIS guy meant to be?

And in other news, it seems that the Joker won Character of the Year at the Spike TV Video Game Awards this year (this is despite their apparent decision to seat Mark Hammill and Tara Strong at the very back of the hall, effectively in the bleachers, but eh, what are ya gonna do?).

Anyway, the Joker accepted the award in a prerended acceptance speech, where he revealled a script for "Arkham World" that he happened to be holding at the time, before hiding it against because of "Spoilers". Whether it was just a joke or the possible extention of the storyline within the game, we'll have to see, as it'll probably be another two or so years before a sequel to Arkham City hits the shelves.

i don't know... i loved Geoff's Teen Titans, i think he can write them well... he might bring the gravitas to Shazam that it needs (i always had a problem with him being "The Happy Homeless kid", i have no problem with him being well adjusted, but give me reasons... not just "Oh i'm homeless but i'm happy")

also yay on Arkham World! :D

The cars angle for this issue doesn't really scream a "whole new direction," but it does sound fun. I'm always up for more car chases in comics. :D

As for Marvel--hey, Johns wrote him and the Batson kids pretty damn well as "Captain Thunder" over at Flashpoint. Also, he's actually made his take on Hal entertaining for the first time since...EVER. I'm more than willing to give him the benefit of a doubt.

I liked Captain Marvel in JSA--I think the focus on Black Adam had a lot to do with his attempt at reformation being a more dramatic storyline and, well, Johns has always been really good at writing the villain types. And as I recall, the only time Johns really used Mary was during or after Final Crisis, and Johns wanted to reform Mary, but Didio said that he thought there was still story potential with Dark Mary Marvel.

Yeeeeesh, I could almost enjoy Guillem March's art if it weren't for his complete inability to draw eyes ever. He makes Catwoman look deranged and druggy whether she's just lookin' at some crap, bawling like a weepy baby, or standin' around doing nothing.

Yeah, besides the gratuitous T&A that really bugs me about the art in the new Catwoman series. All the women in particular tend to have some sort of quasi-anime eyes that make them look like they're either dead or some sort of aliens. That's especially pronounced in issue 3 with Selina and her dead friend, where they both have freakishly open inhuman eyes and pretty much the same expression on their faces.

Discover Billy Batson’s place in DC Comics – The New 52 as we reveal his all-new origin story!

...why? His story worked. I mean, Jeff Smith's Shazam! The Monster Society of Evil was awesome.

I'm going to expect the worst in hopes that I will be proven totally wrong.

I tried reading Smith's Shazam...I thought it was really boring and bland. Really, the only modern writers I've seen that have done Marvel really good was Johns and Morrison.

I think part of the problem is that we're getting yet another origin story. First Thunder was a great Captain Marvel story that let us learn about how Billy became the Captain organically through the events of a different story. I'm hoping that's the angle they take with this.

...Selina turns over a new leaf by stealing "hot cars" now? Oh fuck it, I give up on this title. I was going to go up to issue #10, but if the solicit to #7 isn't offering any hope, I don't see the point. Winick clearly doesn't get the character or what drives her.

Moving on, why hasn't anyone posted the solicit to Birds of Prey? I found the solicit for it very intriguing:

"Go ahead. Skip this issue. You’ll only be missing 20 pages of insane, wall-to-wall action as the Birds of Prey finally catch and unmask the elusive mind-controlling villain known as “Choke” – only to discover that he’s turned one of their own against them! You’ll also be missing Black Canary vs. Ivy! Batgirl vs. Starling! Katana versus…well, that would be spoiling things, wouldn’t it? BIRDS OF PREY #7: The comic for people who think there’s not enough fighting in comics."

I'm betting my money the person Katana's going to be fighting is Huntress. Perfect match right there between two people who have a history of waging a personal war against the yakuza and mafia respectively!

Is that YMCA reject supposed to be holding up Hawk and Dove? Because they just look like they were drawn around him. Hawk's right leg is HUGE compared to everything else.

Oh, Rob. Always the trainwreck. At least he drew feet.

What is that guy holding Dove by? Telekinesis?

I like how it's a fan, not the company themselves, who managed to turn the GCPD 'nailing' Catwoman into a gratuitous sex joke. Because you know, no Cop in no piece of any fiction has ever said 'We're this close to nailing that guy!' or something along those lines. Christ...

I'm going to go on record as expecting the new Captain Marvel to be terrible. And I'm going to say this: DC not reinventing Captain Marvel to match the version from Flashpoint is missing a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY. I really, really liked the version from Flashpoint and the characterizations involved. For that matter, I loved the Jeff Smith version, too.

But I realize, in my heart, that DC doesn't want new readers, just lapsed ones. We'll see if that works in the next few months, now that the blush is off the rose, so to speak.

What? Now she just says the hell with it and runs around naked instead of half dressed?
