    The collected editions of all the New 52 books start coming out in May, so the collections of those will begin to trickle out over the next couple of months. Just from browsing the comic solicitations here at Toon Zone, it shows the following for what you've asked about:

    -Batwing vol. 1 has issues #1-6, and comes out in July
    -JLI vol. 1 has issues #1-6, and comes out in May
    -Green Lantern vol. 1 has issues #1-6, and comes out in May
    -Action Comics vol. 1 has issues #1-8, and comes out in August
    -Supergirl vol. 1 comes out in October, but the solicitations for it hasn't been released yet, so the issue count is unknown. The general consensus on most of the trades, though, is six issues, so I'd probably go with that.

    For Batwing it's #1-8, Green Lantern is #1-5, Action is #1-8, but there's an interlude in the middle, and Supergirl is #1-4. Not sure about JLI since I'm not reading that book.

    Sounds like a couple interesting projects.
    I don't know about having a zero issue for all the comics but that is an interesting idea to do for that month.

    Also Trinity War sounds interesting, I heard it's going to be about Pandora so maybe we'll get some more reboot questions answered then.

    Supergirl should be issues #1-7. DC released all the trade breakdowns awhile back, and Supergirl was listed as 7 issues. Many of the trades for The New 52 seem to go into the 7 issue range, including Supergirl, Superboy, Teen Titans, GL: New Guardians, Red Lanterns, Demon Knights, Frankenstein, Swamp Thing, Detective Comics, and Batman. And a few go beyond that:

    Action Comics, as mentioned, is 1-8
    Batman & Robin is 1-8
    The Flash is 1-8
    DC Universe Presents is 1-8, collecting the 5-issue Deadman arc and 3-issue Challengers of the Unknown
    Any of the 6 cancelled titles contain all 8 issues
    Batman: The Dark Knight is 1-9, presumably so when new writer Greg Hurwitz takes over at #10 they can start a new volume with him.
    Note to self: No More Heroes avatar in use since April 10/2009. Previous avatar lasted 2 years, 9 months and 4 days!!! Holy Stale Avatar Batman!!

    I tried going through DC's site to find the issue count info for Supergirl, but couldn't find it. Of course it doesn't help that since DC re-designed their site, finding anything on it is next to impossible. 7 issues sounds about right, though.

    I have noticed that DC's trades since they "drew the line" have had more issues in them. I guess since they trimmed the page count down, they decided to throw an extra issue or two in with them to keep the same thickness.

    DC Comics has announced four new The New 52 titles set to launch in October 2012 following a special month-long "Issue #0" jumping-on point initiative. Details can be found here. Below is an abridged quotation from the press release.

    Timed to the one year anniversary of the launch of the historic DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 initiative, DC Comics will introduce 0 month.

    #0s will be stand-alone stories. “Some issues will tell the origins of a character or a team, or in some case where an origin has already been told, they will fill in the blanks in terms of questions readers may have about the New 52 DC Universe,” said Bob Harras, DC Entertainment Editor-in-Chief. “Each of these issues promises to reveal something surprising.”

    And debuting at #0 are four new comic book series:

    TALON - Writer Scott Snyder with co-writer James Tynion IV. Artist: Guillem March.

    SWORD OF SORCERY – Writer: Christy Marx. Artist: Aaron Lopresti.

    THE PHANTOM STRANGER - Writer: Dan DiDio. Artist: Brent Anderson.

    TEAM SEVEN - Writer: Justin Jordan. Artist: Jesus Merino.

    The four new series will follow with issue #1s next month and other series will resume their numbering.
    Four titles from the current selection of 52 titles will be removed to make room for the new series.

    They're taking March off of Catwoman? Grrr....

    I may end up trying Talon just for him, even though I was a little "Meh" on Night of the Owls.

    Other than that, I'll probably give the first issues of Team 7 and Phantom Stranger a go, in hopes that they wow me a little. I like the ideas and concepts there, but they're just not grabbing me right now. Grifter being on Team 7 leads me to believe his solo ongoing is being cancelled, though. The sales haven't been fantastic so far, so I can't see them giving him two books.

    Let me first consider the new books:

    Talon. Fuhgeddaboutit. Spins out of the Batman "Night of the Owls" arc, which I'm not even bothering with. Not even considering.

    Sword of Sorcery: Yow! 40 years after the original book comes out, DC revives the title. This might be worth the trip.

    Phantom Stranger: Seems to be tied into this "Trinity War" thing, as they've supposedly linked the Stranger with Pandora, if you believe the preview in The New 52 FCBD book. Not sure about this one.

    Team 7: Another former Image-Wildstorm book. Didn't read the original series, not going to bother with this one, either.

    So who would get the axe?

    Anything linked iwth the Justice League is safe.
    Anything in the Batman line is safe.
    Anything in the Superman line is safe.
    Anything in the Green Lantern line is safe.

    You have two new books going into the Edge line, which means two may be coming out. Now that I, Vampire is linked to Justice League Dark, he's safe----we think. That means Demon Knights is going and gone after a year. Etrigan can't buy a break any more than he can hang on to a woman.

    I've this feeling that anything linked with Rob Liefeld is on the endangered list, which means Hawkman & Deathstroke are facing elimination. Sad shame for both. Like, Hawk & Dove didn't survive the first cuts, so......!

    All-Star Western, which I read, is linked to the Batline only because it's set in 19th century Gotham most of the time, so I think that's safe, though something tells me it might not be.

    Got this feeling that either Voodoo or Grifter might be cut to make room for Team 7. Talon will be part of the Batline (ugh), but that doesn't mean a Batbook's getting cut.

    Final predictions:

    Demon Knights, Savage Hawkman, Grifter or Voodoo, and either All-Star Western or Deathstroke.

    Never thought they'd bring back Amethyst outside of the upcoming DC Nation animated shorts. I'll likely give the first issue a shot just to try something very different.

    Is it me or is the concept of zero month the ideal thing to do when you're just starting out?! Oh well.
    I would suggest that it's not the medium, but the quality of perception and expression, that determines the significance of art. But what would a cartoonist know? -Bill Watterson

    Sword of Sorcery is being written by Christy Marx; the same one who created Jem and wrote a bunch of comics in the 80s. It should be interesting just from that standpoint.

    Besides that Team Seven sounds like it could be a bit interesting.
    Yup. It's a signature. Go away if you're expecting something interesting here.
