I'm not crazy about the variant cover art so far. I like the Sharpe ones just fine and find them much better.

Since Adam Strange is another character who DC has no idea what to do with, I suggest they get rid of Baz, Cruz and the new Teen Lantern, and make him a GL.

The couple times it happened I always liked Adam and Hal as a team. There's something natural about that pairing, like if you could team Chuck Yeager with Buck Rogers.

So now he pops up once every three years, and meanwhile we're getting force-fed Baz, Cruz and the Teen Lantern.

Give us Barabbas!

Adam Strange is perfect, just the way he is. Doesn't matter if he is used as an occasional guest star or can carry a title of his own. You don't just slap a power ring on every character just because they aren't used a lot.

Agreed. I'd rather have him traditional and just a cameo than swapped out to fill a feature. It's like B'wana Beast or Bat Lash (admittedly more so in their case). They're not A-listers and that's fine.

I really liked the Quitely variant for #1. In all other cases, even Jae Lee's #3, the Sharp cover was better.

I wish DC would use variants that convey what the story inside is about. The variants they use lately are as interchangable as cutaway jokes on Family Guy. I want a little more thought put into these things, instead of feeling like they are randomly pulled out of the inventory drawer.

Bleeding Cool got the May solicits early, albeit in a smaller size so it's a bit of a pain to read:

What a gorgeous cover! I am really digging the main covers by Sharpe and the theme that connects them. They have a classic timeless feel while the variant covers just feel like generic fan art.

I love how outrageously absurd it is this time around.

That Space Junkies story sounds like it's going to be wild. This title is super fun.
