Man, maybe it will finally be time to stop getting Green Lantern! I really loved both titles from Rebirth to Blackest Night. But the franchise totally peaked at that point. While the Hal/Sinestro pairing was cool, "War of the Green Lanterns" and "Rise of the Third Army" were not one fourth as cool as the previous stories.

That is not a twist. He wanted to kill Damien in his very first story on Batman.
Killing off a character who has been around for five years is a twist. It doesn't matter that Morrison played with the idea initially.

Apparently Johns is not the only one leaving a "Green Lantern" title...

Matt Kindt was apparently offered one of these books. I think the next Lantern writer is probably going to be someone like Fialkov, the wave of Nu52 writers.

I expected big news to come out of the retreat...but this huge. I have stated many times that I've thought that Johns should have left after Blackest Night, I felt like that was the peak of his run and he himself gave interviews that story was basically the third part of a "trilogy". I've honestly not been following "Green Lantern" since issue one of the New 52 relaunch, but I have credited him for getting me into the series and I'll be checking out his last issue.

I guess Johns is just going to be continuing with Justice League? I'm assuming Batman: Earth One Volume 2 as well?

Jim Starlin on Stormwatch and I am suddenly very interested. They are also bringing back the Weird which was a pretty cool mini back in the day.

Huh. Batman #17 is my only pull from DC tomorrow, and from Marvel all I have is Uncanny X-men. I can't remember that last time I had a day this light. Of course, next week I make up for it with twelve pulls, the biggest single week I've ever had.

Avoid any news links mentioning Batman or the Joker. The end of "Death of the Family" has leaked.

Batman #17 was incredible. It took a turn that I wasn't expecting...and I felt was an emotional story. Greg Capullo's art is sensational in this book, he really brings it in this issue...and at the end of the issue the Bat Family is left scarred. I guess we now know why Harper is going to be brought in starting next arc. I'm really looking forward to seeing what Snyder does with Riddler...his take on Joker was awesome.

No, because that would ruin The Joker's fun. Which in part is having this "over" Bruce that he could reveal it at any moment.

The book was very good, I agree. I sort-of thought maybe the faces would be removed but at the end :technobabble: and the faces would be back on with no problem. (A flip-through of Batgirl showed her with her face, but bandaged slightly.)

But I thought the book was a very good ending to the arc, the story and the art in Batman has pretty much consistently been fantastic.

Yes Joker is a jester in that he wants to make Batman laugh in the language that Joker uses, which is mayhem and terror.

So if he wanted to torture and kill the Bat Family, why didn't he reveal THEIR secret identities to the world?
