marvel72 - 2/9/2013, 5:50 PM
when is snyder's man of steel coming out if these are released in may?
MJPETTY7 - 2/9/2013, 5:54 PM
Batman and Action Comics look the best, as Splenda said above. But I look forward to Batman & Robin and Superman as well.
Wingding - 2/9/2013, 5:54 PM
What "team-up" does Batman #20 speak of? And is that clay face? :O

Questions, questions...
Grabthemcakes - 2/9/2013, 5:56 PM
Odd to see Hector Hammond tied into Superman. Was Hector Hammond ever in any Superman story lines pre 52?
ATrueHero1987 - 2/9/2013, 5:58 PM
I guess MOS by Snyder & Lee comes out in June.

SN: Ordered Superman: Brainiac by Geoff Johns. Based on the reviews on IGN & Amazon, it's a very good read. Can't wait.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 2/9/2013, 6:01 PM
One of the first times I can say amazing covers for all of them!
dracula - 2/9/2013, 6:05 PM
batman #20 looks like the dark knight returns
Anthrax - 2/9/2013, 6:07 PM
orion lol

Anthrax - 2/9/2013, 6:07 PM
that batman and robin one is amazing.
Fastestmanalive - 2/9/2013, 6:09 PM
Cant wait for Action comics
Fastestmanalive - 2/9/2013, 6:10 PM
I guess this confirms that Jason is not the one to die in Death of the family
Anthrax - 2/9/2013, 6:11 PM
@fastestman i was thinking the same thing.
GuardianAngel - 2/9/2013, 6:28 PM
If Clayface is in Batman #20, then when does the Riddler arc begin?
Paragon79 - 2/9/2013, 6:31 PM
Damn I love Supes' new suit. I know people don't like it bcuz of the lines on it, but pretty all armor has lines in it.
bazinga85 - 2/9/2013, 6:34 PM
That superman cover is terrible. He looks like the crimson chin!!!
Paragon79 - 2/9/2013, 6:47 PM
So I'm guessing that Death of the New Gods isn't cannon anymore.
thewolfx - 2/9/2013, 6:49 PM
@paragon79

And thats why it sux , its armor ..superman doesnt [frick]ing need armor.
Jollem - 2/9/2013, 6:56 PM
i personally think superman should be naked. puts fear in the enemy
space - 2/9/2013, 7:08 PM
I wonder if Superman is fighting Orion because he found out that he is Darkseid's son!?
Paragon79 - 2/9/2013, 7:56 PM
Talia is rocking the camel toe
InfiniteMonkey - 2/9/2013, 8:16 PM
Love the camel toe.

Superman has to be the biggest pussy for a super hero in the entire world. He still can't beat Lex Luthor despite his super powers. LOL
KeefNCookies - 2/9/2013, 8:51 PM
Sweet B&R cover.
Paragon79 - 2/9/2013, 9:00 PM
Thewolfx: I guess we'll agree to disagree. I think him having a traditional type of Kryptonian armor makes sense.
rbfn04 - 2/9/2013, 9:01 PM
Paragon79 Armor with the high collar brings a ït's the plice" feel to it. Not Superman.

That pointy sleeve is sillier than the trunks (not that I find the trunks silly). That is straight up Supergirlesque.

The armor reacts to kal-El (that's not Clark, dude) thoughts. Why can't he eliminate the lines?

But, remove the lines, the Supergirl sleeves and the high collar (becomes wven more stupid when EVERY character has high collar) and the suit might work better
CoolantTech - 2/9/2013, 9:03 PM
Superman vs Horrible Hybrid is the best
oldnoname - 2/9/2013, 9:12 PM
That's a pretty sick Batman and Robin cover
BrosephStalin - 2/9/2013, 9:32 PM
Lobdell's Superman is [frick]ing awful. Go Morrison though!
storyteller - 2/9/2013, 9:44 PM
I get the red belt for Superman now. It's supposed to represent his red underwear. Yeah it only works for me at certain angles.
CavEl - 2/9/2013, 10:26 PM
Where the F is Kenneth Rocafort?!!!
loki668 - 2/10/2013, 1:11 AM
I can't help but wonder......when Tim Drake shows up in his Red Robin costume and people yell out his name, is he contractually obligated to yell "YUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMM!)

Lord Loki has spoken
mgeoff88 - 2/10/2013, 2:14 AM
WOW! Chris Burnham did an amazing job with the Batman Inc. cover.

The glistening parts of Talia's body look so real.
FlashhGordon27 - 2/10/2013, 3:40 AM
Urgh... I hate Aaron Kuder's art, where's rocafort? I wish I had read the supes arc with Rocafort's art (I gave up just before). All the other covers are awesome though.
Certtz - 2/10/2013, 7:25 AM
Clayface arc coming up? Would love to have a Riddler or Hush arc soon.
lucio7lopez - 2/10/2013, 9:02 AM
Thalia proved to be the most dangerous archenemy in the Batman world!!! I hope the rest of the bat-titles are impacted by what occurs in Incorporated! And about Superman... Awesome =)
JatevinM - 2/10/2013, 10:42 AM
I seriously would like for Scott Snyder to A) have Harley Quinn's costume redesigned and B) for him to finally give Harley a good story arc that makes her moe than just the Joker's weak love interest.
Wildaniel - 2/10/2013, 10:53 AM
@JatevinM Yeah, Snyder writing Harley would be awesome! The back-up in Batman #13 had Harley, it was awesome!
TheOzmaofOz - 2/10/2013, 1:43 PM
Can't wait for Clayface in Batman #19 and 20. Gonna rock.
TheOzmaofOz - 2/10/2013, 1:44 PM
@Certtz 19/20 are Clayface. Riddler arc after that. He's the next big arc from Snyder.
pepe - 2/11/2013, 2:22 AM
