Today in Comics History, January 1, 2007, 12:00 AM, New Year's Day: Lex Luthor enjoys the traditional thuds and splats ringing in the New Year

from 52 #35 (DC, March 2007); script by Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka, and Mark Waid; breakdowns by Keith Giffen; pencils by Phil Jimenez and Dan Jurgens; inks by Andy Lanning and Norm Rapmund; colors by Hi-Fi; letters by Travis Lanham

Oh Luthor, you nut, you crazy goofball! Kickin' off the New Year by slaughtering heroes! Will you ever learn?

Now, you may notice that this issue specifically identifies Week 35 of 52 (35 of 52? That's some weird-ass Borg name, isn't it?) as starting on January 1, 2007. That means we can identifies and pin down the exact date of every scene in 52, and I can now post panels from every single story in every single issue to add to the "Today in Comics History" feature starting now!

But I'm not gonna do that. You may now pause to exhale in relief.

(Maybe next year.)

Happy 2007, everybody!
