The Miracleman/Marvelman announcement is a tough one to follow. Maybe we'll get some more big announcements today?

Also, good god, how many books is Geoff Johns going to be writing this next year? Green Lantern, Superman: Secret Origin, Adventure Comics (main feature AND back-up), and The Flash. That's without counting all the Blackest Night material he is currently writing. It's crazy how prolific he is.

I'm actually interested in Justice League, surprise surprise as well as the new Flash ongoing. Haunt has most of my attention though.

"Haunt" = Looks like Toddy's Spider-Man art that's been palette-swapped with Spawn. real original. snark.
