New Booster Gold And Captain Atom Comics For DC?
Two new books I hear coming down the line, open for pitches and proposals at DC Comics, Booster Gold and Captain Atom. Booster Gold was given much importance during Convergence, travelling from domain to domain, with a version of himself transformed into the Waverider character from the Armageddon 2001 series from decades ago An earlier version of Booster[...]
What Were They Thinking? – Doctor Spectro

The New 52 Twelve Issues On – Week Three – Batwoman, Wonder Woman, Red Hood, Catwoman, Green Lantern, Shade, DC Universe Presents, Supergirl, Blue Beetle, Birds Of Prey, Nightwing And Captain Atom
And eBay likes it too!

I also understand there is a new Keith Giffen project in the works. Aside from the already cancelled Captain Atom, Justice League International, Voodoo and Resurrection Man, the lowest selling titles are Grifter, DC Universe Presents, Blue Beetle and Fury Of Firestorm before you get to the still-surviving-into-2013 Savage Hawkman.  Four titles were chopped last time,[...]

Why not collect them all? Captain Atom #4's artist, Freddie Williams excels this issue, his art style loosening up even further, so when people, things are destroyed by radiation, by energy, whatever, they just fall apart, they crumble, and you can just feel the debris under your fingernails It's a rather disturbing feeling for a comic[...]
Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen DC Comics – Justice League, Batman, Red Hood And The Outlaws, DC Universe Presents, Catwoman, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, My Greatest Adventure, Green Lantern Corps, Birds Of Prey, Nightwing, Legion Of Super Heroes, Blue Beetle And Captain Atom
This is the book that you don't think you like, and I think you might be wrong.
