I’m really impressed with how f*cked up some of the things they’re doing are – the Black Lantern Flying Graysons? Are you going to get a Black Lantern Pa Kent? Did you see the cover to the Titans mini? Some great stuff here – I think DC is going to show how you really integrate zombies into your universe!
