Journey To The Real Earth-2

DC's solicits for July 2006 just went up at Newsarama and Comic Book Resources. Everyone will be giving you their picks, but I just wanted to point out one particular book advance-solicited for Aug. 2.

Written by Paul Levitz and Gerry Conway
Art by Wallace Wood, Joe Staton, Ric Estrada,
Keith Giffen and Bob Layton Cover by Brian Bolland
Collecting ALL-STAR COMICS #58-67, plus the origin of the JSA from DC SPECIAL #29! Witness the continuing adventures of The Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Wildcat and the rest as they are joined by younger heroes Robin, Power Girl and Star-Spangled Kid!
Advance-solicited; on sale August 2 • 224 pg, FC, $14.99 US

The kickin' Brian Bolland cover!

Ooooh, I'm very excited to see this finally coming out. I was hoping they would shoehorn the origin story into the first volume, since it doesn't really "fit" anywhere chronologically in the run. It's a great comic book. The rest are...hmm, I enjoyed them, but I suspect they have gained something of a mystique that may go beyond their actual quality. We shall see. Now, all we have to do is await the inevitable second volume (ALL-STAR COMICS #69-#74 & ADVENTURE COMICS #461-#466). It should be sooner rather than later!

I'm debating that GL "Greatest" trade. That's a maybe. And...wait, wha--?!? JSA is ending? That's certainly a set-up for a relaunch, but came outta left field.

Darn, no SHOWCASE volume this month. Maybe those advance solcits finally caught up with them.
