Lord Satanas offers Superman and Batman a deal they couldn’t possibly accept…right?!


5. BATGIRL #35 - CAMERON STEWART


Barbara Gordon is no stranger to dusting herself off when disaster strikes… so when a fire destroys everything she owned, she spots the opportunity for a new lease on life — and seizes it! Following the rest of Gotham’s young adults to the hip border district of Burnside, Barbara sets about building an all-new Batgirl… and discovers all-new threats preying on her peers! It’s a re-invention of Batgirl from the boots up, by the incredible creative team of Cameron Stewart (BATMAN INC.), Brenden Fletcher (WEDNESDAY COMICS), and rising star Babs Tarr!


4. SUPERMAN #35 - JOHN ROMITA JR.


 
The hit SUPERMAN run by Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. continues with “THE MEN OF TOMORROW” Chapter four! Superman and Ulysses are still dealing with the traumatic revelations of last issue, but the hunt for The Machinist must continue before his would-be-victims fall into his hands. But what happens when the two heroes learn the truth behind The Machinist and the cost to stopping his mad plan?


3. JUSTICE LEAGUE #35 - IVAN REIS


"THE AMAZO VIRUS" begins here! Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor join Wayne Enterprises and LexCorp – but why? And then, it's HUMAN VS. SUPER-HUMAN when a dangerous and bizarre virus is unleashed upon the Justice League – but what exactly is the Amazo Virus? Who unleashed it and why? And what unforeseen effects will it have on the greatest heroes of the DC Universe? Plus, Batman and the League uncover Lex's most guarded secret at Lexcorp Headquarters.


2. SECRET ORIGINS #6 - LEE BERMEJO


 
The same month the acclaimed creative team on WONDER WOMAN exits that book, they arrive to tell the Amazon Warrior’s secret origin! Plus, the beginnings of Deadman by J.M. DeMatteis and Kevin Stokes, and Sinestro’s origin by series writer Cullen Bunn and artist Igor Lima!


1. GREEN LANTERN #35 - IVAN REIS


“GODHEAD” Act 1, Part 2: That shudder you felt was the New Gods declaring their intentions against all ring-wielders! Having staked their claim to the emotional spectrum, the New Gods set about redefining the universe in their image, starting with Metron, who’s determined to steal the secrets of the Corps’ Citadel. But Hal and the Corps have something to say about that. Good luck trying to make yourself heard when you’re talking to a god!

Niiiiiice.

Aquaman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Superman and Green Lantern all have excellent covers.
DrunkenNukem - 7/20/2014, 6:23 AM
wtf is that Batgirl cover??? the only thing missing there was the #BATYOLO #OMGKPEANNDCOOWL #BATPHONELOL
loki668 - 7/20/2014, 6:23 AM
The Wonder Woman one is amazing!!!
loki668 - 7/20/2014, 6:24 AM
The Batgirl one looks like an ad for Mtv.
DrunkenNukem - 7/20/2014, 6:24 AM
Wonder Woman´s cover is the best one...by far..the second best its Aquaman...because its the [frick]ing Aquaman!
DrunkenNukem - 7/20/2014, 6:27 AM
Im not following the JL run...is it good?
Vegeta - 7/20/2014, 6:47 AM
@DrunkenNukem

I enjoyed Trinity War & Throne of Atlantis, but aside from The Origin, the individual arcs have been pretty lacklustre, to be honest.
Archgoat - 7/20/2014, 6:57 AM
Really nice art on most of them.
Steelers4190 - 7/20/2014, 7:00 AM
Not a fan of the WW's face in that cover lol
edwardshiro - 7/20/2014, 7:09 AM
The cover of Batgirl.... Sorry. No me gusta.
Danbojohnj - 7/20/2014, 7:25 AM
The Superman one is awesome.
InfiniteMonkey - 7/20/2014, 7:26 AM
That Wonder Woman looks like a bloody Meth addict gone wrong.
That old looking face.
The decrepit aura about her. Uhhh.

Way to send the message that meth is bad for you DC.
Vegeta - 7/20/2014, 7:28 AM
The Wonder Woman cover is horrible! She looks like a bloke in drag.
feedonatreefrog - 7/20/2014, 7:30 AM
I'd replace Earth 2, Batman, Batgirl, Secret Origins, & Justice League with any of these:









CherryBomb - 7/20/2014, 7:32 AM
Wow WW's is epic!
She looks fierce.

Batgirl...

case - 7/20/2014, 7:41 AM
God damn Jae Lee is a freak.

Treefrog - REAL good picks there too.
RobertLiefeld - 7/20/2014, 7:46 AM
I should have been on this list. JRJR? Come on...
DrunkenNukem - 7/20/2014, 8:00 AM
@Batmaniac...yeah..JLD is so good..
ThePowerCosmic - 7/20/2014, 8:05 AM
Some great looking cover art! Aquaman one is great!

The selfie covers have got to go! Same with Marvel's deapool variants...I hate that kind of stuff.
MightyZeus - 7/20/2014, 8:09 AM
Those covers look amazing.
MightyZeus - 7/20/2014, 8:10 AM
"Your killin' independent George, Elaine!!!"

Klone - 7/20/2014, 8:24 AM
Superman Doomed looks... hilarious.
aRandomSinisterClone - 7/20/2014, 8:34 AM
funny, only reason john romita jr's looks kinda ok, is cuz its all shadow. im amazed how poorly that "pro" can draw faces.
ManCalledSting - 7/20/2014, 8:42 AM
Feedonatreefrog: Have they revealed who that masked guy, with the Superman symbol is yet?
ManCalledSting - 7/20/2014, 8:48 AM
I never cared for what they did with Parallax. I realize it was all about redeeming Hal, and helped set up the beginnings of the other Corps, but I liked it when it was just Hal being an insane badass.
kevberg - 7/20/2014, 8:55 AM
Holly sh@t that last GL cover is ripping of the Devourers from Alpha Flight. some creepy sh@t.
DrunkenNukem - 7/20/2014, 8:55 AM
Looking foward to this

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/20/2014, 9:07 AM
Love all those covers except for the selfie one
Battabing - 7/20/2014, 9:39 AM
Just wanted to let y'all know that Grayson is f.uckin sexy!
Battabing - 7/20/2014, 9:46 AM
I love Batgirl's new look.
Battabing - 7/20/2014, 9:48 AM
I get that WW is in battle-mode but it just doesn't make a good still image.
It's like catching somebody's O-face.
Leadpoison - 7/20/2014, 11:26 AM
Selfie Batgirl needs to have her lunch money taken and her instagram deleted.
Klone - 7/20/2014, 11:44 AM
@Battabing

What?
nikgrid - 7/20/2014, 12:28 PM
Batgirls new costume is shit, it makes no sense in the context of the story.
In the earlier comics she is a woman, now she's f.ucking 15?
foolonthehill - 7/20/2014, 2:20 PM
Jae Lee is the only artist that can make Superman's shit new-52 costume look halfway decent
CavEl - 7/20/2014, 5:56 PM
I feel like the Bat-Family made the list just for being a Batman related book.


Batman 35, Earth 2, Batgirl and Batman and Robin are all shitty. Detective Comics and Batman Eternal are all better.
CavEl - 7/20/2014, 5:58 PM
@BatManiac - Erm, Superman under Geoff Johns, Secret Orgins and Batman/Superman are good too.
CavEl - 7/20/2014, 6:00 PM
@foolonthehill - it's Superman's suit without the panties, a few lines and a collar...that is what made Superman's suit "shit"? That's not registering to me.
Faris - 7/20/2014, 6:36 PM
Batgirl looks so cute :) Love it!!
foolonthehill - 7/20/2014, 6:50 PM
@CavEl
It's an overcomplicated mess replacing an iconic look. I'm not against reinterpretations or modernizations, per se (I like the MoS suit or the current Earth 2 Superman's costume, for example), but the current "armor" is unnecessarily busy
