Well, Blackest Night will be hitting the home stretch. But what will we see? Wait, TOP SECRET? I suppose that means we're going to get some sort of continuity altering event? Maybe, maybe not. Regardless, I'm sure we'll get more super-powered zombies ripping out peoples' hearts...

It sounds like something big is brewing for next summer with the Superman books. I'm actually looking forward to that even more than I'm looking forward to the post-Blackest Night status quo.

Oh, and my prediction is this: the "murderer" is Superman's New Krypton "pal."

The big JSA split happens this month, and I'm still not sure what I want to do. I have favorites on both teams as well as characters I don't like on both teams. Also, I don't have infinite money. What's a guy to do? I'll probably at least try out the first issue of All-Stars. But who knows if I'll stick with it. I mean, it's got Magog.

VARTOX! VARTOX! VARTOX! I'm so glad I didn't drop this book.

What are you looking forward to in December?

It does sound like it's going to lead into a Kryptonian Civil War. WHOSE SIDE WILL YOU CHOOSE?

Power Girl, is just good goofy fun. As for those Kryptonians, I'm rather surprised that they haven't had a whole slew of murders...considering they are all a bunch of jerks. Now they're superPOWERED jerks.

I don't know about the whole JSA All-Stars thing. I much prefer the old farts to the young whippersnappers. And I want Magog to just quietly disappear.

Honestly, I dropped JSA from my pull list before it could split. I haven't liked the last few issues and like the idea of the JSA family split into two teams even less. No clue where things are headed, but I know I don't want to find out.

Besides, why are Jesse and Rick on different teams!?
