Maybe at some point they'll DO something with Cyborg. He just sorta stands around... It's a lousy book.

Aquaman is so superior to Justice League now in my opinion, and has been since last year that there is no comparison to me.
I just hope AM doesn't fall apart when the new creative staff takes over.

What new creative team? Johns and Reis are remaining on it. They're basically doing two books now.

The article says not, from what I read...but of course that could change at any time. For now though they're working on both books.

Ivan Reis is leaving the Aquaman book.

He isn't capable of doing two books a month.

Johnston has said Johns is following Reis which is a real pity.

Back to the lame guy that talks with fish. Should be cancelled within a year after the change.

It seems to clear to me that Cyborg is in the JLA for a single reason, to provide an organic (narratively and literally) with Darkseid's Apokolips in the first arc. Johns has done nothing else with him at all. It was one decent idea with no follow-up.

The article states that "Aquaman" will be "front and centre". It doesn't say anything about Johns and Reis leaving the book...that may obviously happen in time, but not immediately at least.

I see the latest creator tapped to bring a fresh new voice to the DCU is...Tom DeFalco.

Batgirl #0: I actually really enjoyed this book. Enjoyed Babs New 52 origin more than I thought I would, and we get James Gordon Jr teases as well. Dug Barbara's "original" costume design as well. The attack on her from "Harry X" kind of reminds me of the attack on here in Batman: Earth One. Not exactly the same thing but similar. Art was terrific as I remembered as well. I might give this book another shot.

Batman and Robin #0: This was really Damian's origin. When we're introduced to him in Morrison's run, he gives us really the basic stuff we need to understand about him. This goes into the training and conditioning techniques that Talia used and his upbringing with her and ties very nicely into Batman Incorporated. Really didn't care for the art though as usual.

Also in Batgirl #0, we get the first official image of Dick Grasyon as Robin in his "new" original costume.

Looks like they are trying to get their hooks into the batbooks.

Not sure what the big deal is. DeFalco's been writing for the New52 for several months. The Nightwing gig amounts to a fill in. He developed the plot with the editors of the book. How is that getting their hooks in? Who is "they" anyway?

The New52 has used of blend of old and new writers since the beginning. Morrison, Johns, Winick and Simone are hardly fresh new voices either.

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

I'm talking about the clique of 90s Marvel writers brought in by Harras. He is putting them in a lot of places where they don't belong. It really should be more indie, vertigo and current image writers with some pre-reboot dc writers, but Harras is putting his people all over the place and they really aren't very good. The replacement of Winnick on Catwoman by Nocenti and Lobdell on Red Hood and an attempt to give DeFalco a trial run of Nightwing, it just screams power grab.
