We all know that DC is cancelling six titles in May, and they need six more titles to fill-up that magical number of 52. Now DC reveals two of the titles that’re debuting in June- Larfleeze and Batman/Superman.
It’s a sad news that Geoff Johns is leaving Green Lantern. However, it’s even sadder to learn that DC is shuffling the entire Green Lantern Line creative teams. While it’s confusing why DC is doing this, one good thing does come out of it- Larfleeze, the Orange Lantern, is getting his on-going series.
Larfleeze is the only Orange Lantern in the universe, due to the fact that Orange is greed, thus don’t share power with others. Since his debut, Larfleeze has soon became one of the fan favorite characters. Recently features in Threshold‘s back-up, now Larfleeze is going to have his own spotlight. Details of the series is still unknown, but I’m sure it has something to do with the Threshold back-up.
The other new series is a big one- Batman/Superman.
Like the same name series from 2003, Batman/Superman is going to re-established the friendship between Batman and Superman. One big problem with the New 52 is a lot of character history has been erased, and their friendship is hardly shown. The series is set to tell the early tales where Superman and Batman first met and fully explore what happened. That means Superman is going to be in his T-shirt and jeans outfit. Hopefully this series doesn’t erase what’s already shown between the two characters in Justice League and Action Comics, and just work around them.
Once again, these two titles are coming in June. Can’t wait.
