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

Liked both of my books this week (Batgirl and Batman), Batman was very good and I like where the "Death of the Family" story is going. Batgirl was pretty darn good too, but the "shocker ending" was a bit silly. For some reason it made me think of when Beetlejuice wanted to marry Lydia in, well, "Beetlejuice" Basically just our psycho antagonist character wanting to marry the young hottie because he's unbalanced with deeper motivations.

I found some of the art in "Batgirl" to be odd and not very... "flattering" towards Barbra? Too many lines on a character's face and body makes them look old and flabby.

I'm not much feeling the Joker's "new look" either and really the medical and biological mechanics of it all baffle me.

Still good couple of books look forward to where DotF goes from here.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
