Some great jumping-on points are the story for DC’s lineup this week! Starting with Superman #7, which boasts the new writing team of Keith Giffen and Dan Jurgens. So, if you weren’t really into the very talky 1970s vibe of George Perez’s writing style, you can hop on this week for the 1980s vibe of Giffen and Jurgens! Hey-O-O-O-O! But seriously, just taking a flip through I can tell it has a totally different feel to it.

The start of an insanely epic arc from the new writing team of Keith Giffen and Dan Jurgens! New love interests, new roommates, and a new foe: the wicked Helspont! What does this monster want with Superman, and how does it all connect to the Daemonites?
Also this week, there’s Aquaman #7 from writer Geoff Johns and artist Ivan Reis, which likewise kicks off a new storyline! Who destroyed Atlantis? We just might find out.
Finally, the big event of the week in the New 52 might just be the start of the "Rise of the Vampires" crossover story, which starts in Justice League Dark #7 and continues into I, Vampire #7! The latter has been one of our favorites since the DC relaunch and is easily the biggest surprise. The story will be four parts, finishing up in next month’s issues of the above titles.
I VAMPIRE #7

Straight off the shocking events of last issue and continuing the story from this month’s JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #7, Andrew Bennett finds himself in a place he never thought he’d reach during his countless decades walking the Earth. But his absence on Earth signals a deadly loss of order in the vampire hierarchy, as the savage attack on humanity he’s long feared looks like its coming to pass.
Those titles and more all come out on Wednesday!
