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

Don't know about the fate of the JLI team, but if Justice League of America is indeed supposed to be the black ops team then it's feasible that the Justice League won't know about them for a while. Actually this kind of reminds me of the New 52 version of Justice League Elite or whatever it was called.

It's more like Justice League's version of Secret Avengers imo.

Also it appears that Morrison's long teased Wonder Woman project will be a Wonder Woman Year One book with Yanick Paquette.

There is simply no way Morrison's ideas of WW is going to be acceptable to the American Mainstream Comics Audience.

I agree, probably will be one of the most talked about books if it happens next year.

DC has a new PR guy.

People have been shipping Wonder Woman and Superman for ages. (She's really the only female on the planet other than his own cousin who could a)stand up to his moral standards and b)survive a night of sex with him.

Be interesting to see how this plays out.

Very LITTLE is acceptable to the American Mainstream Comics Audience beyond a very narrow vision of what possible under "continuity."

Bring on Morrison's take of WW.

I still regret we'll never get to see Adam Hughes' ALL-STAR WONDER WOMAN.

Yeah.

I do have to say, the new Wonder Woman series has renewed my interest in the character, that and remembering Morrison's use of her in JL.

Good lord. Not that I really had much respect for Leifeld to begin with, but his twitter feud with Snyder is painting himself as petulant child.

Agreed. I can't even image what benefit Liefield thought that he would get by posting the private conversation. Not only is that a dick move all by itself, the content of the private messages clearly paint Snyder as the reasonable one, or "the adult".

Well Snyder's day job is working with adult-age children. So the man has plenty of experience dealing with the Liefelds of the world.

Anyone agree with these? I would dispute the "stellar Bat books" one. Only "Batman" is exceptional. The others have been hit and miss, and of course "The Dark Knight" is a disaster.

Yeah, Detective and Dark Knight didn't last a month on my pull list.

They're coming off my list once the current arcs are over no matter what.

"Batman" has remained pretty good, though I was losing interest in it during part of the "Court of the Owls" arc, particularly the several issues focusing on Batman trapped in their maze/den/whatever. But, overall, it's the best of the Bat-Books.

Batman is the only one that's been great. Batman and Robin had a pretty good opening arc, but a lousy second arc (Robins moments aside.) TDK and Detective Comics have been pretty bad.

That's what happens when you let artists write not because they are amazing storytellers, but because you want to keep them working at the company.
