DC #1s for the SUPER-family, SUICIDE SQUAD, and BLUE BEETLE.

DC has announced some more #1s (are there any more? I dunno) Including the SUPERMAN family books,  with two decidedly different takes on the Man of Steel by Perez and Morrison/Morales, A new SUICIDE SQUAD with some decidedly different takes on KING SHARK, DEADHSOT, and HARLEY QUINN, and a one title that has this IC reporter in a quandry…I LOVE Tony Bedard’s writing (and he’s a good guy), but we all know I’m a TED KORD guy. Well, Tony Bedard is writing the new BLUE BEETLE ongoing…and it’s Jaime Reyes as Beetle. Now, when I expressed my mixed feelings on facebook, Tony graciously thanked me for my compliments to him, and simply asked that I “…give Jaime a chance.”

So, we’ll see. But I still miss you, Ted!
