My DC list is pretty trimmed down these days.

There's the Green Lantern trifecta (Blackest Night 5, Green Lantern 48 and Green Lantern Corps 42)
There's the Superman trifecta (Action Comics #883, Superman #694, Superman: WoNK {I love that abbreviation!} #9)
There's Wonder Woman (#38)
There's the non DCU standards (Tiny Titans #22, Wildcats #17, Cinderella #1, Fables #90)
And I'll probably give The Great Ten #1 a try as well, considering that I like international heroes and Tony Bedard

Plus, a few maybes that won't be going on the preorder list
Like the JSA trifecta (JSA #33, JSA 80-page giant and JSA vs. Kobra #6)
And a new series, new mini-series and new creative team getting a try-out (Adventure #4, JLA #39, World's Finest #2)
BLACKEST NIGHT #5
GREEN LANTERN #48
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #42
BATMAN: THE UNSEEN - Tradewait this Moench/Jones masterpiece!
THE GREAT TEN #1 - I said a long time ago if they ever did a book with the Chinese Heroes I would be there. I may not be able to tradewait this one!
JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #33
JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA 80-PAGE GIANT #1 - Not sure about this one.
GREEN LANTERN CHRONICLES VOL. 2 TP - Finally!
There's a big spoiler, as noted elsewhere, in the Blackest Night solicits.

Another Sherlock Holmes mini-series...huzzah!
Blackest Night #5
Green Lantern #48
Green Lantern Corps #42
Batman & Robin #6
Justice Society of America #33
And a tradewait on the Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love mini
Darn Geoff Johns and his Adventure Comics! Now I'm reading all of the Superman stuff in monthlies again. (fake angry fist-shake!)
My only definite definites are Detective Comics #859 and Ex Machina vol. 8: Dirty Tricks. (Batman: Streets of Gotham #6 would be a definite definite, except Paul Dini's not writing the main story, so it loses some of what puts it on the definite list.) Gotham City Sirens #6 and Wonder Woman #38 (there's a juxtaposition, huh?) are most likely definites, as I'm currently reading both, but they're both also on probation, so theoretically something could happen between now and then to bump 'em off the list.

I might give new mini-series The Great Ten (Bedard + McDaniel sounds promising), Lobo: Highway to Hell (Sam Keith art), and Victorian Undead (Sherlock Holmes + zombies? Fun!) a try, unless I don't. And I was considering hopping on to James Robinson's Justice League of America, but the fact that #39 is a Darkest Night tie-in makes me...wary.

Beyond that, just a handful of tradewaits.

That's exactly what I was feeling, too.
Blackest Night
Green Lantern

maybe Green Lantern Corps... I read the first BN tie-in and it didn't do much for me. I might settle for recaps on this one.
maybe Doom Patrol -- I liked the first issue, particularly the Metal Men story, but there's room for improvement.
maybe JLA -- I'm wary of the crossover, too.
Detective Comics
Maybe the Batman/Doc Savage special. I'm curious about this project, and I love Rags Morales' art.
Suicide Squad
Wonder Woman
Fables
The Unwritten

and I might pick up the Cinderella mini, but I'm just as likely to tradewait it.

Looks like the Doom Patrol relaunch will sync up perfectly with Blackest Night. It could give the writer a chance to really reveal a lot about the Chief and how the reformation of the team has come about.

Mark

I agree -- I have a feeling it'll be a pretty decent crossover issue, and very pertinent to the series itself.
