Welcome to What's New in The New 52 – where you, the fans, get a sneak peek at the stuff that crosses our desks. This little feature is a way to keep you all in the loop about what's new, different and exciting in The New 52 – whether it's a character design, cover, splash page or panel.
PICS OF THE LITTER DEPT.
While at the San Diego Comic-Con, MAD Art Director Sam Viviano and Associate Art Director Ryan Flanders spied none other than Game of Thrones scribe George R.R. Martin eating breakfast right next to them! After rehearsing their Dothraki, they screwed up the courage to approach him for this Celebrity Snap! He was a great sport, even turning his famous hat sideways "Aflred E. Neuman-style." Thanks, George! Now stop goofing around and wrap up that heptalogy!
CARLOS DANGEROUS LIAISONS DEPT.
When we ran the first version of this ad two years ago, we assumed that Sexter would run for a single season before being cancelled. However, now that more dirty messages and nude shots of Anthony Weiner have turned up (dated a full year AFTER his initial sexting scandal broke) this show has been renewed...even if his New York mayoral hopes are being cancelled.
It’s the Monday after Comic-Con, and much of the DC Comics office is working furiously to respond to all the emails that came in over the weekend (we’ll see which arrives first—the bottom of their inbox or Labor Day). However, that’s not about to stop us from bringing you our weekly collection of new comic previews. Not on a week like this. A week that brings with it the third chapter of “Trinity War” (in Justice League Dark #22), the second issue of Batman/Superman, and an icy new issue of Aquaman.

YOU STAY GASSY, SAN DIEGO DEPT.
San Diego Comic-Con 2013 has come and gone, and the Usual Gang of Idiots were there in full force. Here are some lowlights from the convention floor.

Go inside this best-selling issue from the superstar creative team of Scott Snyder (BATMAN, SWAMP THING) and artist Jim Lee (JUSTICE LEAGUE, BATMAN: HUSH), and witness the origin of this exciting all-new series.

CHEATER RIVERA DEPT.
On Sunday morning, Geraldo Rivera tweeted a nearly-naked selfie, proudly proclaiming, “70 is the new 50.” (To which we proudly proclaim: “Both are still gross to look at.”) However, despite Geraldo’s pride in his appearance, we’ve learned that not all the work on his body was done at the gym! After doing a little cyber-research, we were able to find the original, untouched selfie!
