How does James Robinson’s Earth 2 compare to the rest of The New 52?
James Robinson’s Earth 2 is a shock of a comic as it almost heads full speed into a completely unexpected direction. Amidst a rather boring introduction to Earth 2’s Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, legacy characters like Alan Scott and Jay Garrick finally make their New 52 debut, and it’s quite obvious their presence was sorely missed. The action scenes in Earth 2 make up for the odd characterization, however, and that action is most definitely attributed to Nicola Scott’s fantastic pencil work.
Geoff Johns and Jim Lee bring the first arc of Justice League to an electrifying conclusion.
Just like the five issues that preceded it, Justice League #6 is a gigantic, exciting, action-packed thrill ride. Darkseid finally made his godly presence known to the world’s greatest, if not most dysfunctional, heroes. Did the “Super Seven” finally put their mutual mistrust aside in order to save the world? Justice League #6 is worth the cover price to find out.

Sinestro defends his planet and steals the spotlight.
The greatness of a hero can always be judged by his worst villain. In the case of Green Lantern, Hal Jordan has a mighty foe in his one time ally Sinestro. Not since the days of DC’s behemoth crossover, Blackest Night, has Green Lantern read so well, with Sinestro and Hal’s animosity leading to fantastic character developments and more tactical action.
Bleeding Cool is proud to present, online for the first time, the DC Comics New 52 video presentation, featuring motion-comic style artwork and talking heads from Dan DiDio, Jim Lee, Grant Morrison, Bob Harras and Eddie Berganza.
Abin Sur finds himself on Earth to retrieve the white entity. Yet his priorities change when he meets Hal Jordan and realizes how valuable and worth saving Earth is. As he forms an allegiance with Cyborg to save the doomed planet, Abin Sur is secretly visited by Sinestro. How will his old friend’s reveal of the prophecy called “Flashpoint” affect Abin Sur’s mission to protect Earth? And what does it mean for their relationship?
