Is Boy Chimney The Great DC Character Find Of 2012?

BuzzFeed, in its tour of DC offices the other day, had a sneak peek about The New Six, the new books joining the New 52. Let’s have a quick look and further examination… with thanks to Dan Hart for assistance.

G.I. Combat: The War That Time Forgot by J.T. Krul and by Ariel Olivetti, and The Unknown Solider by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and Dan Panosian. Note that The War That Time Forgot appears to be between modern day North Korea and the USA…

Batman Inc continues to have multiple Manbats, and Talia still holding the reins…

 

China Miéville and Mateus Santolouco introduce Boy Chimney, Captain Lachrymose, Abyss and Nelson for Dial H, in what is now my most anticipated DC comic.

 

World’s Finest by Paul Levitz, George Pérez and Kevin Maguire

 

The Ravagers by Howard Mackie and Ian Churchill, with a Warblade design by Jim Lee.

Earth 2 by James Robinson and Nicola Scott. It features Wonder Woman chasing what would appear to be Hermes/Mercury… say, in Kingdom Come, didn’t Wally West evolve into a very Hermes-like form?
