UPDATE, 12:30pm ET: Dan DiDio and Jim Lee's interview with Ain't it Cool News brings some more details on the new titles. Of Martian Manhunter's placement in Stormwatch, DiDio said the decision was based on wanting to emphasize his "Manhunter" status, and "really make him a force within the DC Universe." In speaking of further DC/Wildstorm assimilation, Lee called Grifter "by far the easiest" Wildstorm character to inegrate into the DC Universe. Also, DiDio confirmed that cult-favorite character Ambush Bug won't initially be part of the post-Flashpoint DC Universe. "We have a lot of fun working with Ambush Bug, but we think he might be left in one of the other 52 different universes right now. We don’t expect to see him any time soon I the new DCU," DiDio said. Original story: DC has released the latest new #1's included in their 52 title relaunch/revamp this September.
Not surprisingly, since DC introduced the titles with the title, "Welcome to the Edge," these comics have an edgier feel to them. This is also where we find the Western and war comics that Co-Publisher Dan DiDio promised.
