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

I never took the epilogues as actual events that will happen, just Johns "treating" the fans of his run and completing his work. Usually those things are just glossed over by the new regime.

http://www.newsarama.com/18027-dc-vi...one-place.html so DC is going overboard with titles in sept? Some titles like Justice League will have 4 issues in one month? each at the full price of $3.99?? wow.

September must be the comics equivalent of "sweeps week".

As long as they're planning a sweep of mass cancellations on the under performers after they try to go all out but whimper.

I don't really have any interest in any point 1 issues not by the regula rcreative team, so DC might be saving me a lot of money in September.

So, it is really .1, .2, .3, .4 issues? I might stick to buying the mini-series this month.

New Years Evil was gimmicky but wasn't it a fifth week "event?" I know it didn't replace the regular books. I bought a few.

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

Wiki admits that I was a 5th week thing, but except for Incredible Hulk and Cerebus, I still bought all my comics third hand, 2 years later from the bus depot at that point in my life, so fith week shmift week.

I found most of them in the 1/4 bin... Except Prometheus which I bought 10 years later for double price online.

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

Keep in mind this is to "celebrate" or mark the "second anniversary" of the relaunch. This is supposed to be like the Zero Issues from last year. Villains Month though is going a little bit overboard, and I think Bleeding Cool stated that there will be 56 issues shipping. Also supposed to tie into the "Forever Evil" mini-series by Johns and Finch.

That being said I'm actually looking forward to some of these.

Many sound like fun, as they flashback to the origins of the villains. Which also means we get to see what the heroes were up to back then.

I'm most looking forward to the New 52 introduction of General Zod. Also I think Lex escapes his prison in his issue of Action Comics as well. The Brainiac issue could be interesting.

Lex Luthor should not want to Escape his prison. While they think that he's trussed up, he's in hog heaven for freedom running about in that teletransmitted clone meat doppleganger.

His lawyer gets him out and Lex fires him. And by fire I mean kill.

I don't like this new Lex Luthor becuase I don't understand him because he doesn't have a natural graduated development.
