It's exactly two weeks until DC Comics releases Justice League #1, just the first of no fewer than 52 new series launching or relaunching in September as part of "The New 52," a bold and controversial initiative whereby the publisher is retooling, redesigning and in some cases wholly rebooting many of its classic titles and characters in an effort to aggressively engage new readers.
