I am really liking how infrequently DC is crossing over their characters. I was really pumped to see Kyle Rayner appearing in VooDoo 3 and even more excited to see Grifter vs. Green Arrow. I hope DC keeps the crossovers to a minimum so that these interactions have a greater impact. I am REALLY excited for some of these books, I thought the first "Men of War" was fantastic.

Love how frequently the crossovers are happening. That way if you are only getting some books, you can still get to understand more of whats going in the DCU with other characters.

BTW these look FKING AWESOMMMMEEEEE!!!!!!!

Once the first three issues are done, it looks like things will start to pick up.

Suicided Squad looks the most attractive though. Adding Captain Boomerang is going to be a great addition. I think the group will eventually break off into two teams. One will be the Suicide Squad and the other will be Secret Six. Hopefully.

@Grim: It's possible. But Superman mentioned in Swamp Thing that he remembered dying. The Death of Superman could have already happened in some fashion in the DCnU.

FUCK YES, CAPTAIN BOOMERANG IN SUICIDE SQUAD!

And the Men of War covers have been great. Plan on sticking with both those titles through December (hopefully), so we'll see what happens leading up to this point.

loving the all new ,all different Stormwatch # 4 cover by Chris Burnham ( he is quickly becoming my favorite artist :D ) he is just killing it right now . At least DC had made a decent investment when they hired him into the fold . ( besides this cover reminds me of a Trippe B-movie 1950s Horror movie cover !) truth telling Ruth
the title should a have been called Stormwatch verse the terror of the Green Jello Blob !!! ( that if it was directed by Quintin Tarantino and written by Grant Morrison with help by Warren Ellis ) but in a perfect it world it would have been so (but This one is still on top of my list !)

Another brilliant Biz cover. 
Stormwatch still looks insane (in a great way). 
I love O.M.A.C.!
Men of War cover is lovely in its simplicity.
All-Star Western wins best overall cover.

@cagedleo730: That may work. The cold gun always seemed like a Mr Freeze ripoff but without it it may seem like an Killer Frost ripoff. It always seemed kinda weird though that Flash was fighting just normal dudes, it always seemed like a major one sided fight. He is smart with powers, they are kinda stupid and powerless

@GraveSp: Yeah, I'm actually kind of glad they kept that power. I always liked Digger and his trick boomerangs, but it makes a lot more (from having him be a credible threat) to just have him able to summon as many energy boomerangs as he wants.
