From what I gather, Detective will focus on the Penguin. The Joker seems to have a special place for him in his plan.

Finally dropped Firestorm, but I got lots of other stuff.

Ame-Comi Girls #1 and #2: DC is putting out a series based on a line of collectable figures that feature various female superheroes. I had to have 'em.



Aquaman #14: I wanted to give up this title, but it's been so well written lately that I have to continue for now.

Arrow #1: Decided to check this out because it's based on my favorite new show of the season.

Before Watchmen: Ozymandias #4

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #4: Got this variant cover…



Justice League Dark #14: This is my favorite title right now.

Non-DC title… Adventures of a Comic Con Girl #3

I buy my comics a month later because I buy them digitally. Just read JL14. Wow, if the first year had been written like this, it would easily be the coolest series of the new 52 now. The origin story would have been a decent four issues, the making of the villain would have ended around issue 8 and we still would have had more character development than in the last year.

Batman Incorporated #5.

At this point, I have no idea if this takes place in the Nu52. And I don't really care. I just want to see Morrison reach the ending of his grand Batman saga, end it the way he wants to, and if it doesn't like up with what everyone else is doing, then so be it.

As awesome as this issue was (and it was awesome -- I loved the way Morrison conveyed Bruce's relationships with Jason and Damian), it also feels like we're nearing the end, that Morrison is pulling his toys off the table and putting them away.

Also, this Leviathan saga is starting to feel like "Court of Owls" and "Death of the Family" all rolled into one -- an enemy from the shadows is striking out at Bruce on a personal level, and an enemy is hitting at Batman by attacking his allies. Coincidence or a larger plan? I'm not sure.

This will all end as Talia's dream.

For the climax of Morrison's Bat saga, it would have been nice if they'd gotten a high profile artist for it. These artists have been very middling. What are Adam and Andy Kubert doing right now?

One's a Marvel exclusive. The other is working on Before Watchmen: Nite Owl.

Chris Burnham is excellent. He is almost like Frank Quietly, and has been a perfect compliment to Morrison since he started on the book. I've zero complaints about his work. In fact he's become one of my favourite artists.

Batman Incorporated #5: This was an issue that I have been waiting for quite some time, the return to the future and Damian as Batman. Interesting reveal from Bruce as Morrison attempts to tie everything together now. It would appear that the future he has been talking about that he has been attempting to prevent, was indeed the Batman 666 Future. I was under the impression that the story from Future Damian picked up from the short shown in Batman #700...and that the baby that he saved was actually Terry McGuiness, but that must've been another child then. The Barbara/Damian scene reminded me of the Jim Gordon/Joker/Batman scene from "The Dark Knight Returns". Just so much happened in this issue to digest. Also was it just me or did the President resemble Clark Kent? It reminded me of a Quietly drawn Kent. It probably wasn't meant to be though.


Mike Marts has also stated that Batman Incorporated is indeed part of the 52'Verse.

I had the same thought as you and drew the same conclusion ... but I had to read the issue twice.

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

This could be interesting. Johns has been hinting in "Justice League" of a secret cabal of villains over the last few issues. I assumed that he was setting up the new 52 version of the Legion of Doom, or something similar. Probably will have some kind of tie-in to "Trinity War" as well.

@Deriston...is the President's identity clearer under a second read? I have to confess that it is going right over my head LOL.

I think it was clear that he is setting up something similar to the Light from YJ or the Society from Infinite Crisis.

Read Justice League Dark #14 and this books continues to get better. I keep weeding out books and this one manages to stay on my list to keep reading.

Yeah I was thinking of the Light from YJ as well. That wouldn't surprise me.

Are we in for some more creative changes?

Superman, TDK, Flash, Aquaman, Ghostbusters, TMNT.

Big pull week.

Read "Superman" last night, really enjoyed it. The "H'El" arc has shaping out to be an interesting one for sure. I'm still sort of mixed on the art. It's good but it also sort of "lacks something" or has a certain je ne sais quoi to it that make it feel "off."

Like it's less comic book art and more like storyboards for a movie or art department sketches or something.

It's very GOOD art, do not get me wrong, it just feels odd is all. But I really enjoy the current arc in the book.

(Kara seems a bit off, however, than she is in her own book.)
