    Man, DC is eating me alive. 52 and Batman stay. I just decided to start picking up BoP after reading 92-96 last week. Blue Beetle has been pretty nice, but I don't know if I NEED it every month. I may drop Flash if this issue doesn't dazzle me. Justice League I've seen the team and am all giddy. I think I may just get the Turner cover because it shows the team, rather than the awesome Benes covers. But if they make a poster of the Benes covers, I'm there. Maybe Supergirl I could drop. Legion is another I've enjoyed but don't know if I really need. Wonder Woman I want to see Donna Troy stay, but we already know Diana is going to be back in the star-spangled panties soon. Then there's always a manga on my already heavy weeks to add another $10, I think I still need to read vol. 3 (and Lost War Chronicles vol. 2, and like 4 volumes of Trigun)... oh well.

    I'm not sold on Heroes for Hire, other than Black Cat I'm a bit "WTF" about the cast.

    Is there any reason I should be grabbing it? Anybody? Beuller?
