GL:NG Annual was so awful that I was pretty much turned off Threshold before it began.

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

There are rumours going around that Keith Griffen is already departing "The Legion of Superheroes" after two issues. LOL.


Justice League #16: I still continue to be amazed at the difference since Jim Lee has left. Tony Daniel's artwork is sensational and Geoff Johns is doing some of his best work. I kind of wish this had been the quality of writing from the start of the book. We're in "Aquaman" territory with Johns and not just because he is writing an Aquaman arc. I'm surprised how much I'm enjoying the Atlantean arc right now. The last page where Vic calls in reinforcements...was awesome. I guess we're also continuing to see the seeds of the Trinity War as well right now.

Wonder Woman #16: This continues to be my favourite book of the New 52. It's just so good. The New God story continues to be fascinating, and the dynamic between all the characters is great. I absolutely can't get enough of Cliff Chiang's art as well.

"Throne of Atlantis" is definitely the best written story of the New 52 Justice League so far, I'm actually into it!

They should have a editors retreat instead seeing how they are the people dictating and writing the plots.

For LoSH, Paul Levitz needs to go the way of the dodo.

Hmm, I wonder if the big idea is the Trinity War? That's the next DC event, right?

That is what someone sarcastically stated in the Bleeding Cool forum. Rich though probably is implying that they're working on something else.

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

After seeing the preview on CBR, I decided to get Batman and Robin Annual #1 and was blown away with how great this issue was. I think this is probably the first issue of Tomasai's run that I've actually really loved. What Damian did for Bruce was down right heart warming and finally showed some progression of character. The art work was pretty decent, and we get Damian wearing his Batman 666 costume for really the first time lol. I don't know if this will be enough for me to pick this back up but I was extremely impressed with the annual.

Superman #16: This was pretty decent as well...although I don't really like the idea of Clark purposefully threatening his cousin the way he did in this issue. I know the relationships are different than they were in the DCU, but I still can't see Clark ever threatening Kara the way he did in this issue. Also what was the deal with Wonder Woman telling Superboy to criticize Superman at his peril? What was so wrong with what Kon said? I don't like the way Diana has been written outside of Azzy's book. The art work is simply gorgeous. This book has evolved from a gong show to a pretty decent book I have to admit, even under Lobdell.


Batman Incorporated #7: This was an outstanding issue...in fact, the last two or three issues as we build up to the climax and the finale, have been incredible. I absolutely adore Chris Burnham's art work. Damian has a chance to shine in this issue as does Jason Todd to a smaller degree...and Talia has never been more lethal than she has in this run. A very different take on her character than we've seen before, and we saw little snippets of this take in "The Dark Knight Rises" in my opinion. I'm getting a little nervous about the grand finale though. I hope he doesn't end up killing off Damian...but it sure is how feels like that is what is going on here. Where exactly this book fits in the New 52 of course puts a question mark on that theory obviously.

Aquaman #16: I think Aquaman and Wonder Woman obviously have been the two biggest beneficiaries of the relaunch. Johns is doing some great work on this book, and surprisingly for the lack of Mera in this arc, the other characters are starting to benefit from his attention. I love his characterization of Vulko. The art is not bad either.

Up to this point Clark and Kara have only met a couple of times and each time she was very much on the offensive, coupled with the fact that right now Superman is trying to save the world/universe it seems logical he'd be somewhat threatening and hostile towards her. This is still Superman, however, and we know he'd never "cross that line" but he's also probably willing to say and do whatever he has to just short of that line to complete his goal.

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

Yeah...don't get me started on Supergirl...I did follow the book for a number of issues before finally dropping it. I love Kara's design, but don't really like her characterization or what they're doing with her. They basically fought each other right off the bat after their initial meeting so their interactions with one another haven't exactly been cozy. Anyway that was a minor nitpick for the most part.

Hopefully after H'El arc Kara will realize the error of her ways and what Superman is doing and their relationship will improve.

DC's latest "innovation": Special fold out covers!

The guys in charge love the 90s so much they'll probably give Clark Kent a grunge makeover soon.

I wonder what theme they will be accentuating when they get back to chromium holograms?
