Don't know if anyone has posted to this link or not, but it is a thoughtful and provocative article from a woman's perspective about the way previously powerful female characters are now being handled in DC:

I haven't read the book, but unless there is some strange act that Kori is putting on, the panels that I've seen just look sad.
I was really looking forward to both of the comics discussed in the article, but I honestly don't know if I can after reading that. I did notice one thing though, when she mentions female superheroes she looked up to it was all Marvel characters. So that got me wondering, is Marvel any better when it comes to this kind of stuff?
Comicsalliance usually give Marvel a pass with regards to some of the more sexist stuff.

"I, Vampire" they've been promoting as a different kind of vampire story and I believe that it features John Constantaine, I maybe wrong about that but I seem to remember stumbling upon him during an interview with one of the book's writers.
The "Dark" corner with I Vampire, Demon Knights, Swamp Thing and Animal Man are suppose to be more connected in their own corner of the nuDCU.
