, great as always, with a possible revelation about the nature of the magic lasso (which contradicts an ongoing joke in Justice League
). And in Justice League
, Batman apparently loathes the JLI, which at least appears to contradict his actions in that title (until I stopped reading it). I'm sensing a theme here, in which the biggest titles aren't quite adding up. But both books were good reads (not sure about that Shazam back-up).
Red Hood and the Outlaws
: anyone waiting to hear where Raven is in this new DC, you might want to read this - there's an overt mention of Trigon, and a character who is called something else but could be read as a radical re-design of Raven. And if Raven is, as we've been told, linked to Pandora, Red Hood
might be a more important/core title than it first appeared.
Less spoiler-y, I really like the structure of Red Hood
: seven issues in and it's taking its time with the overall plot, while the mini-arcs feed into the main story organically. It feels, on that level, like the Wolfman/Perez Teen Titans
or mid-70s Spider-man
