The whole list can be found at IGN Comics

The notable titles include:

FINAL CRISIS: REVELATIONS #1: A "Final Crisis" tie-in from Greg Rucka that centers around The Spectre. And yes, Greg Rucka returns to give us more awesomeness with the New Question. Huzzah!

FINAL CRISIS: LEGION OF THREE WORLDS: A 30th century grudge match begins between Superman and the Legion of Superheroes and the Time Trapper, who's recruited some help from a certain whiny punk from the last Crisis. It should be noted that the solicitation refers to him as SuperBOY-Prime. It could easily be a typo, but make of it what you will.

TEEN TITANS #62: A look at the Titans from the perspective of...Wendy, Marvin, and Wonderdog. You've GOT to be shitting me...

ALL-STAR SUPERMAN #12: The conclusion to probably THE single-best Superman story ever. Not really a good jumping-on point (I'm waiting for a trade, myself), but for those that have been in on the ride, it all ends on August 6.

Outside of the Final Crisis stuff, it doesn't look like a lot's coming from DC's end this August. Still, the good looks great. Marvel's solicitations come tomorrow.

there looks like some good stuff on paper here.

As one of the world's biggest Starman marks, I await seeing what Robinson does with Superman. ATLAS~!

You know, it looks 'ok', but this series is causing Jim Shooter to leave the regular LEGION series just when he's hitting his stride. Bad timing.

TEEN TITANS #62 will be the single best issue on any series this year... EVER!!!

I hadn't heard that Shooter was leaving the Legion. Do you know who's replacing him?

Most probably Geoff Johns, and as much as I hate to agree with Cerebus, it's a shame that Shooter's possibly gone.

Shooter's run is great because he's not just rehashing old characters and storylines, but introducing new characters and situations every issue.

I haven't been that enamored with Shooter's run, but I'm glad it's not just some Silver Age retread.

No disagreement about any of this. I knew one day we'd be faced with Pratchett "hanging it up" so to speak, but I certainly had hoped he'd have a chance to ride off into the sunset and enjoy himself a little.
