Supergirl #26 starts a new arc by writer Tony Bedard and artists Yildiray Cinar and Ray McCarthy, featuring the new-look Lobo that debuted to considerable reaction from fans. DC says Supergirl has "a new mission and a clearer understanding of her place in the universe" when she returns to Earth after "Krypton Returns." They did not specify if Bedard is on as the ongoing writer, or just for an arc. He recently concluded a two-year run on Green Lantern: New Guardians.

Over in Superboy #26, Marv Wolfman and Andres Guinaldo will take over the series in the midst of the Teen Titans time-lost Forever Evil tie-in arc. Wolfman will have a co-writer for the first issue, Frank Hannah. The story includes "some startling revelations about his origins and his future" - of course readers know that this New 52 Superboy is actually the clone of the future son of Lois Lane and Clark Kent, so the future is certainly a revelatory place for him. The cover looks less hopeful.
