DC in October
has spotted DC's
solicits for October
. Some items that caught my eye:
sounds like an interesting concept -- an entire issue
devoted to a single artist illustrating stories involving multiple
characters by multiple writers. The blurb says that artists are
free to work "in a variety of genres" but the first issue (which

- The first Focus collection is released, a 144-page, $9.95 TPB for
Time. Could it be manga-sized?
- The CMX
are all running around 200 pages for $9.95.
- I am very excited for this.
- You knew it was coming once the writers of The Monolith
on Hawkman: Guess who's guest-starring in Hawkman
- The next
JLA arc is by Kurt Busiek and Ron Garney and
I'm sorry--"explodes from the pages of Busiek's
JLA/AVENGERS!" I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad
thing. But the return of the Crime Syndicate of Amerika might be

- Huh? John Walsh of "America's Most Wanted" guest-stars in Outsiders
#17. Is this another one of those hokey media tie-ins
to get lots of free press? Well, it is written by Judd Winick...
- Those kinky superheroes!:
Finally, Ed Brubaker is writing a two-part arc on Tom
, which might just be enough to get me to pick up this
series again. (The fact that the two-parter is illustrated by
Duncan Fegredo certainly doesn't hurt.) But I'm afraid even
Brubaker isn't enough to make me interested in The
