Wave 2 of DCnU!

Posted by BRiAN On September - 13 - 2011

Tomorrow marks the 2nd wave of the DC 52 #1s! Which ones are you looking forward to!?

Last week was huge in the world of comics. Action Comics got an all new #1 (much to the chagrin of long time Supes fans and to the guy who said that Kal took the Lord’s Name in vain) while Barbra Gordon got to run around again (using her legs!) and Sgt Rock joined the world of modern warfare…all the while DC Comics stirred up a lot of buzz in the mainstream media.

Here’s the list of the DCnU Proper books hitting shelves tomorrow (for the rest of the books and sweet stuff coming out tomorrow CLICK HERE):

BATMAN AND ROBIN #1 : Written by PETER J.
