It's a balmy 40 degrees in Michigan as I type this, so thinking forward to May and sixty-degree weather sounds alright to me.
Unfortunately, it looks like May isn't going to be any too kind to our favorite freaks.

The best-selling 12-issue series illustrated by Alex Ross is now available as a single volume hardcover at DC’s standard trim size.
The villains of the Legion of Doom — led by Lex Luthor and Brainiac — band together to save the world after a shared dream that seems to be a vision of the Earth’s demise. They are confronted by the Justice League of America, who doubt their motives—and as their true plans unfold the two teams do battle.

Nuts. "It's all been building to this!" Seems to me like there might have been a little more waiting for us on the other side of issue #22, but sales are what drives this business.
Hmmm. Maybe a groundswell of support could save the book similar to what Spider-Girl enjoyed so many times. . .
