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

I thought Simone did a good job on the Batgirl book. I didn't like the idea of taking Barbara out of the wheelchair and enjoyed both Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown as Batgirl and wouldn't have minded seeing either one of them instead of Babs. That being said, I thought that Simone brought her back well.

Overall, I've dropped a lot of New 52 books, but not because of any declining quality per se. I didn't want to spend the money or the time collecting all those books. Plus I don't have the space for all those books. And some of the books I was supporting got canceled. All that being said, I've enjoyed the New 52 far more than the Marvel books that came out during the same time period.

I'm still buying Batwing, Aquaman, Suicide Squad, and I' Vampire. I'm looking for the right time to drop Vampire, but it keeps me hooked. If I was inclined to still spend money on the New 52, I would be still be reading: Wonder Woman, Batman, Batman & Robin, Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, and Talon. I might still keep reading Nightwing, Batgirl, and Justice League.

I've been enjoying Batgirl and I like Barbra.

Mr. Light...Action Comics isn't a limited run book, Morrison is just concluding his run and Andy Diggle is succeeding him. LOL. Although it does almost feel like that considering this was Morrison's baby.

Yeah, I think he was just referring to Morrison leaving the title.

Another Golden Age name drop in Earth 2, Lee Travis and James Wing aka The Crimson Avenger and Wing. Though this time around it appears Lee is a woman.

Yeah, I was referring to Morrison leaving. Maybe Diggle's run will be good but it definitely won't be the same thing. Do we know the artist for Diggle?

Normally I would go ugh to that, but his recent fill in on Justice League actually looked pretty good. I still plan to drop Action, though.

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

Yeah and originally while I was hesitant over Daniel's paring with Diggle...his art in Justice League has been...well...frankly beautiful since he took over from Lee. I'll be giving this a chance after Morrison leaves. I still have a feeling it's going to be a Return to Krypton rehash but we'll see.

Another change, although I believe this one has been rumoured for a while now. Scott Snyder is leaving "Swamp Thing".

I thought Batgirl was a well written title. The character was humanized and fun, with a lot of good internal dialog that really fleshed out the concerns of a young woman who was also a superhero.

I think I sampled most of the extended Bat-family and Batgirl is the only one I'm still with.

Just as long as Synder stays on Batman, I'm cool. I'm really looking forward to his Man of Steel, too. I am hoping that Lee doesn't do to that book what he did to Justice League (make a talented writer turn in sub-par work.)

Not going to happen. He wants to co-plot and write, but he doesn't have the ability. I think the only reason he couldn't control the direction of Hush was because Loeb already wrote or plotted the entire thing beforehand.
