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

I dived back into Batwoman for the Wonder Woman team-up. The title remains solid; as many have said, the Diana here is closer to the one in her own title, not the blank pinup doll in JLA. But the art ... I don't even know what to say about it anymore. Each double-page seems more miraculous than the last.

I was worried about the change of writer on Demon Knights, but to be honest - for whatever reason, though I suspect editorial shenanigans - Cornell's run ended with a whimper after the breakneck weirdness of the first year. Now Venditti is bringing in the vampires, and some very specific plot beats from the lamentably-cancelled I, Vampire. This issue (16) seemed more focused than the last few, and the 30-year jump is really effective. The story seems Amazon-centric, which might promise answers about Exoristos.

Interesting business trying to reconcile several titles which are speaking to Amazon issues, given the polarized reactions to Azarello's version of them.
I want to be sedated.
