Yeah, Batman has been nothing but "events" lately. RIP led to Battle for the Cowl lead to Batman Reborn lead to Search for Bruce Wayne led to Batman Inc led to Leviathan...

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

I would disagree in calling those "events". Batman, Inc is a continuation of Morrison's run that started in "Batman and Son". The only reason that RIP is considered an event is because of the tie-in to Final Crisis. I would hazard a guess that Morrison probably considered RIP a mere arc in his run. "Batman Reborn" was the launching point for "Batman and Robin" and "Batman, Inc" a continuation. Maybe I'm arguing semantics but I don't consider these events. At least not on the scale of "Final Crisis" or "Flashpoint".


Superman Panel from NYCC. They announced Superman: Earth One volume two will be out near the end of 2012. So we will get both Batman and Superman out next year.

Justice League panel...interesting they reveal who is actually fighting who in issue two.

Also this is kind of exciting...

Well if anyone needs a huge update in every way its the Big Red Cheese. Its really his supporting cast that needs help. Sivana as the main bad guy is so dated he just doesnt work anymore. The cackling mad scientist just cant hold his own in todays more complex world.

Captain Marvel in a back-up feature in Justice League, cool. Glad it's also I high profile book, that indicates some seriousness that DC is taking with the character. Good to see.

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

Oh, I tried to post earlier, but it ate it:

Point 1: Krypto is a God damned abomination.

Point 2: Grant Morrison is going to do a Golden Age/Marstonesque take on Wonder Woman in 2012. I am cautiously optimistic. I hope it's the Morrison of old--the Morrison of Invisibles, of The Filth, of the New X-Men, of JLA--and not the Morrison of Batman, Final Crisis, and Action Comics. I've hated to see him go from the second best writer in comics (for all his bluster, he was never going to overtake Alan Moore, not on his best day) to basically a very competent one.

But we can rest assured: it's Grant Morrison, so it'll be fine. The question is, whether it can do more than that and justify his pretentions. (And I'm not just making a blanket statement. In the statement I read, he was very pretentious. "Immersing [himself] in feminist theory." Fine and good. Maybe he'll be able to write more than two woman character types now.)

I wish they'd gone with the Captain Marvel in the Flashpoint mini. That was easily the most interesting idea I have seen.

Think Captain Planet.

5 kids, the Marvel Family, gelled into Captain Marvel when all said the magic word together.

Separately they might have almost had powers?

Agreed. Batman Reborn was an event in the same way that the X-Men Reload was a few years back. They are a new direction, but you don't need to read all of them or even more than one to understand what's going on. That's what I consider an event. I could be wrong though.

I'm just excited that we are getting a Gary Frank designed Captain Marvel. We'll see how Johns handles the character. Wasn't fond of the Captain Planet-esque take on the characters in "Flashpoint".

I'm really liking Captain Marvel on Young Justice.

They don't know that he's a kid.

It's hilarious.

Hey?

How many people got fired for the new 52?

Some people would have have been shuffled but September must have been a bloodbath of a purge.

Might have to pass on GA then. One the worst writers in the business.
Hmm... I think her Daredevil run is one of the classics.

I mean, she's pretty outspoken politically and it reflects in her writing and I can understand not liking that, but I still don't understand calling her "one of the worst writers in the business."
It has nothing to do with her politics, I'm willing to bet she and I agree on many political issues, But Longshot and that Daredevil run ( what I read of it) were pretty bad. Enough to make me avoid any future comics written by her. Maybe she got better. I'm just not willing to take the chance.

Maybe she'll make "Green Arrow" better because it was pretty boring to me. J.T. Krul had a pretty decent run on "Teen Titans" prior to the relaunch but I don't think that he was the right writer for Green Arrow.

Well she might go "political". Bring back the lefty GA from the O'Neil-Adams run or the somewhat reactionary GA from Grell's run.
