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

No problem. I got a chance to read through most of Justice League Beyond, which I found myself enjoying immensely. I am planning on revisiting Batman Beyond Unlimited, I believe Beechen has teased the Death of Old Bruce coming up soon right?

Wonder Woman #18: This is the best book of the New 52, and my favourite of the ones that I'm reading right now. Just so entertaining and what Azzarello is doing with the Greek gods is amazing. The dynamic between Diana and Orion is awesome too, and Azzy has given Diana quite the eccentric supporting cast...and as always the Cliff Chiang artwork is simply awesome, as is the other artist who fills in whose name always escapes me.

I thought "Justice League" was good again as well. Looks like we start the "march" towards the Trinity War finally next issue which should be interesting.

Sword of Sorcery #6: So the retcon in the nu52 here is that Eclipso(his Earth moniker that he seems to detest) is actually a banished Lord from the House of Onyx, Lord Kaal. I don't like that Constantine chooses to endanger one world but "saving" another.
I'm curious to see how the Eclipso story goes even more now. It's a shame the title only has 2 issues left. I've really been enjoying this title. Was anyone else here reading it?

I never read any of the 80's Gemworld material.

This was one of the books with DC's nu52 that I decided to utilize the "try something new not tied to the old" continuity moniker.

Hopefully when the book ends they can move Amy over into Justice League Dark.

After seeing some upcoming covers, it looks like Mr. Miracle will be brought back soon. I bet he'll have no escape artist training (he'll be a New God scientist or janitor, and be the brother of darkseid instead of son or something stupid like that) and they'll bring back Big Barda, but as a love interest for Orion (because DC hates married couples). I almost started reading Wonder Woman again when they brought back orion, just to see how badly he was screwed up. I couldn't bring myself to do it. I'm sure he's either a) a peace loving hippie or b) New 52 Hawkman version 2, where he's so angry he's pretty muich a cartoon. Combine that with WW's bad art (and poor writing) and I just couldn't read it. I should probably just check and see if wikipedia has beennupdated with his WW appearances.

On a positive note, GL is still pretty good. I'm liking all three of the main GL books. I'm hoping the rumors are true and John doesn't get killed. DC has never done deaths well (atleast not since COIE) and the New 52 would probably do it very badly. Plus, I really don't want him to die.

just so you know, New 52 Orion isn't 'a peace loving hippie' or insane with anger. he has been a little flirtatious with WW though. you should check it out.

New 52 Orion is awesome...and reminds me of a younger version of the Classic character. He and Diana have been great together dynamic wise.

I want to see him played off against Ares honestly. There is lot of potential there.

This is an interesting article, particularly the comments from the "anonymous creators".

Thanks for sharing, that was definitely an interesting read. I wonder who the anonymous creators were, especially the one who called it a clusterf**k of epic proportions. I figured it was Liefield at first, but then I came across his bit at the bottom.

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

I have working theories on two of the anonymous creators (specifically, the first and third), but they're so speculative that it wouldn't be fair to say who they are. The thing that characterizes the first and third is that they're clearly people who worked for DC across the New 52 divide.

Sounds like something Conjob would do.

Has Mike Johnson walked off Supergirl now?

Probably not, but the Lantern and Superman titles will probably become a creators graveyard soon.
