Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I'm enjoying all - okay, all but Green Lantern - of the titles I'm reading now more than I did the DC comics I used to buy. I can't believe I'm buying Supergirl every month, for chrissakes. And Superman is really, really different than the old wooden boy scout that no one ever seemed to be able to spin into having an actual personality or attitude toward...anyone or anything, really.

I mean, I've been reading these things on and off since around 1959. I know the difference and can see it easily...and I've certainly no reason to mourn for the oldDC as there wasn't anything going on there - okay, except Green Lantern - that could hold my interest for more than an occasional one-issue purchase.

At least people have to concede now that the reboot has succeeded. Oh, but I'm sure the Speedo will "be back within a year."

The last part of Flashpoint was kind of sweet - Bruce and Barry and the letter and all. And presumably the hooded chick going on about the timeline being "splintered to weaken your world for their impending arrival" prefigures next summers big crossover event, whatever the hell it is.
