I'm really surprised Firestorm isn't on the cancelled list. I've all but officially dropped it and I really haven't seen anything positive about it, save from the die-hard Firestorm websites.

I was digging Resurrection Man, but, I wasn't in love with it. I hope DnA get a chance to wrap it up. I also hope they get more work and soon.

Firestorm suffers from, well, to much Firestorm. Dozens of the guys running around the globe is way to many and just makes things confusing. It would be better to just go back to one, that being a combination of Rusch and Raymond.

All the Firestorms is too much like having multiple Green Lanterns all on Earth.
Between a couple of GL and FS crime should be quaking in it's boots.
The gimmick I recall on Firestorm that was so interesting was that he could do damn near anything if he only knew how to harness and access his powers. But he's a teenager, he'd rather look cool. With so many FS characters running around you'd think a few would be focused on fine tooling the power of that matrix. I stopped reading at issue #2 so maybe they did.

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

The comic book industry had a great May. From CBR:

May was a huge month for comics sales in the direct market, and John Jackson Miller quantifies just how huge: It was the biggest month for dollar sales in the “Diamond Exclusive Era” (i.e. since 2003): “Diamond’s Top 300 comics had orders totaling $25.72 million, an increase of 44% over last May and the highest total since Diamond became the sole distributor in 1997. It beats the total of $25.37 million set in December 2008.”

What factor(s) are they attributing that to?
Avengers movie + Free Comic Book Day + + +??
The nu52 is too old to generate any new hype.

FCBD has been an ongoing event, this has to be Avengers driven.

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

I think the quote was talking about the comic book industry in general, sales were good, not just for the two companies. Avengers Vs X-Men took the top two places last month (issues three and four). AVX #2 was #6. The rest were all New 52 to round out the top ten. In fact, DC and Marvel books dominate the top 30. The first other company book is "The Walking Dead#98" at 31.

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

The New 52 swelled the overall market when it debuted and that continues to be a factor. Since DC increased its market share in May compared to April, it's fair to say that the overall success of the industry in May was driven by the continued success of the New 52 (which got a boost with the arrival of the Second Wave titles in May) and Marvel's Avengers vs X-Men event.

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

I have to admit that so far my prediction that Marvel would start taking a chunk out of the top ten seems to be wrong. We have some time still, but first half of the year it appears that I've been wrong.

Those dimensions remind me of the lady who plays Fran Dresher's mother in the Nanny.

It does sort of hurt. Both her and my eyes. Clearly the artist studied under Liefeld.

Tomorrow is the big villain reveal of the Night of Owls...who is the person behind the Court? Scott Synder says it's not Bat-Mite. Apparently that's a theory?
