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

I'm liking Earth 2 much more than Worlds Finest, the story is just better and the introduction of a female Red Tornado means I will keep on getting this.

Worlds Finest is just spinning its wheels and doing a real slow burn to get to the point of someone else using the boom tubes to cause trouble.

Phantom Stranger is mildly interesting. JLDark next month so I will be around at tleast that long.

Swamp Thing and Animal Man continue on and I am liking the Rot Storyline.

Detective 15 was poor at best. Emperor Penguin. Batman in a funny colored outfit. Umm thats evoking way to much of the sixties for me. Also the line that Clayface had the fight go out of him and the GCPD can handle it was very funny.

Overall I am at only getting about two thirds of the books I used to.

Yeah, WF certainly is spinning its wheels. SOMETHING needs to happen in it, none the less I'm enjoying the titular characters in it.

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

Right now I'm reading:

Action Comics (dropping after Morrison leaves)
Batman
Batman and Robin (dropping after Death of the Family)
Batman Inc
Batgirl
Nightwing
Earth 2
Green Lantern
Green Lantern Corps
Green Lantern New Guardians
The Flash
Aquaman
Wonder Woman
Justice League

I dropped World's Finest officially, now. I'm on the fence about Nightwing and the Flash right now. The books have been mediocre for a while after starting mostly strong. I'm a huge fan of both of the characters, though, and would really hate to drop them. I've already decided that Action and B&R are on the block. I'm loving Action Comics, but I just don't see myself wanting to continue it after Morrison exits. Batman and Robin had a good first arc, but has been pretty pathetic since then. I'm just going to hold on to it through the crossover. Though, Batgirl aside, the other DOTF crossover issues have been routinely terrible. It's as if Snyder is the only one that actually knows what he's doing with this.

Guess I'm also getting the Smallville "Season 11" comic as well as (non-DC) Ghostbusters and TMNT.

I agree The Flash started strong but lately hasn't been.

Completely forgot about Smallville Season 11...only I've been getting the digital version each week so I don't really count it as a print book since I'm not getting the printed version.

I do love the Flash, but you know what it is I really want? I want a Rogues book. They're all a whole lot more interesting and fun than the Flash himself. I would think if any villains could sustain their own title it would be them.

The Rogues are great and I would definitely buy a book featuring them.

But what I really want--and will certainly NOT get--is Wally West back.

You might get him back, but he wont be the Wally you remember and you will be disappointed all over again. So best if he does not show up.

Agreed. But I would go one step further... Wally back, Barry dead again. He was more interesting when he was dead.

But, alas... that REALLY wont happen.

I agree with this so much. Wally West (along with Nightwing and Jack Knight's Starman) is my favorite comic book character. But he was my favorite comic book character, not because of his name, but because of the great journey he went under starting with Wolfman and Perez's New Teen Titans and ending with Geoff Johns' run on The Flash. If he came into the New 52 where The Flash mythos is more or less rebooted, it wouldn't be the same, and I wouldn't be happy as a fan.

I'm extremely underwhelmed by the New 52 as well. The only books I'm actually excited about anymore are Green Lantern, Batman, and Batman & Robin. Action Comics and Batman Inc are both limited runs that are ending soon.

And GL and B&R have been pretty underwhelming recently, this "Rise of the Third Army" is not very good thus far and I'm missing Hal and Sinestro.

I'm still getting Aquaman, GLC, Earth 2, and World's Finest, but it's only out of force of habit.

For those that are fans, Gail Simone was just let go via e-mail from Batgirl.

Unsurprising. The writing was on the wall for a while. There had been rumors of some disagreements behind the scenes, and the latest solicits had fill in writers. Still, it's sad to see her go. Batgirl had been pretty good. I guess there's one more title that I can drop after DotF concludes.
