No, I'm not dead. I've just been resting.

Anyway, One Year Later.

Cover by Jock
The secret behind the return of Jason Todd is revealed! Join writer Judd Winick (BATMAN, THE OUTSIDERS, GREEN ARROW), artists Shane Davis (BATMAN, ROBIN) & Mark Morales (New Avengers) and cover artist Jock (BATMAN covers, THE LOSERS) for the compelling story behind the Red Hood's origin and mysterious return to Gotham! Find out how the former Robin survived "A Death in the Family" to become one of the Batman's deadliest adversaries.

Let's hope its better than the "hubcaps" story.

It's one year later…and Kara and Power Girl have become the dynamic duo of the bottle city of Kandor as the new Flamebird and Nightwing! Don't miss the debut of new series writer Greg Rucka (WONDER WOMAN, THE OMAC PROJECT) and artist Ian Churchill!

Wait, what?

It's One Year Later…and Hawkgirl is out to make a name for herself in St. Roché! New villains and new threats, all brought to you by the team of writer Walter Simonson (Orion, ELRIC: THE MAKING OF A SORCEROR) and artist Howard Chaykin (American Flagg, CITY OF TOMORROW)!

I don't really give much of a damn about Hawkgirl, but you can't argue with that lineup.

Written by Judd Winick and Jen Van Meter

Cover by Daniel Acuña
A new volume collecting OUTSIDERS #29-33, plus select scenes from various DCU books, showing Donna Troy recruiting heroes for her mission! The Outsiders are left reeling following a betrayal by one of their members. They must face a rematch with the Fearsome Five and Sabbac, who now has the power of the Seven Deadly Sins!

Oh, great. No one of these "recruiting" scenes makes any sense next to the others. Believe me, I've tried.

Collecting three unique storylines of the Eisner Award-winning series from issues #11-16! Mayor Mitchell Hundred must make a difficult decision about his own future, becomes part of a shocking trial complicated by the unexpected arrival of an all-new superhero, and leaves New York City for the first time since his election to embark on a strange adventure!

I really need to catch up on this series.

Written by J. Scott Campbell & Andy Hartnell
Art and covers by Campbell
The thrilling miniseries by fan-favorite creators J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell continues! High school, the social hierarchy and homemade superpowers can be a lot for any teenager to handle. Will the Wildsiderz finally learn to work together, or will the villainous plans of Dr. Spydre break them apart? In order to retrieve their powers, Styler hatches a plan that forces Zak into a dangerously close encounter with Emily. But is Styler's heroic intent what it seems, or is he after something more personal than powers? Either way, the Wildsiderz will have to keep their emotions in check as Dr. Spydre turns their high school formal into an affair they'll never forget. Retailers please note: This issue is resolicited. All previous orders are cancelled. This issue will ship with two covers by J. Scott Campbell. Please see the order form for information on the variant cover.

Ah, the more things change...
