Holy Revamp! DC Comics' the New 52!

For all you fellow comic book aficionados the DC Universe begins...again. On Wednesday, Aug. 31, the whole line of DC titles will be given a revamp. Throughout the month of September, DC will publish new starts for all its titles beginning with Justice League #1 (written by Geoff Johns and cover art by Jim Lee). The comic book company has made some changes, offering more ethnic diversity and women in their books. But some things remain the same; Bruce Wayne is back as Batman, Clark Kent is still Superman (with a new look to his costume), and there's even an Aquaman book. Go to your local comic shop to check them out all month long.
