    DC launches the newest addition to its All Star line of comics - where the industry's top creative talents refine the iconic focus of the world's greatest super-heroes. Writer Grant Morrison (JLA, SEVEN SOLDIERS) and artist Frank Quitely (THE AUTHORITY, New X-Men) - the acclaimed team behind JLA: EARTH 2 - are at it once again, this time to strip down the Man of Steel to his timeless, essential elements. The series kicks off with a 12-issue story arc touching on all the classic aspects of the Superman mythology, starting with a daring rescue of a doomed group of helionauts on the surface of the sun. The massive amounts of solar radiation affect Superman in a way no one could possibly anticipate - except Lex Luthor!

    By looking at the cover of Supergirl 4, I guess we know along what lines the JLA breaks up with.

    Anyone else think that the Superman on the 'Supergirl' cover looks somewhat closer to the new movie version? The red is darker, the are boots slightly shorter, the dorky red underwear is longer and lower down...

    It's been ages since I read anything from DC, so I've no idea if this is a first or whether I'm just noticing it for the first time. Or whether it's all in my head...

    Hmm well I still need to get a few books this week to get caught up but man. Brother Blood returning is gonna be something since a few titans are gone (atleast I think from the looks of the cover.) Yeah Jim Lee's Power Girl is a bit much.

    Well I'm pumped though.
