Yes. We get to see more of the Apocalyptic future! I'm very happy about this.

I don't think Morrison will kill off Talia. Most of the speculation has been this is Morrison restoring things prior to when he first started his run. Talia will be dealt with...but she won't be killed off. Also don't have a problem with Talia killing the Heretic. A very Al Ghul thing to do...especially this version of Talia as you mentioned. I will say though I could see Morrison severely wound Talia. I loved that cliffhanger.

As for the mysterious woman in charge of Spyral...second time I think that organization has been mentioned in the series. Perhaps it is connected to a Kane. Otherwise I have no idea either.

For those reading the Superman books...especially Lobdell's "Superman" and this was teased with Tony Daniels run as well...that we would be returning or be seeing Krypton in a major way in the near future. Well...now there is this.

All I read this week was Swamp Thing #22 that introduces a character called The Seeder and through his workings has infected Constantine. At issues end things don't look good for Alec. A bit of an odd tale actually, a tree that grows whisky...if only it were true!!

The woman is undoubtedly Kathy Kane. Throughout Morrison's Batman Inc, her fate was very much left open. And of course the Batman continuity was one of the pieces left intact by the Nu52.

I just finished re-reading Morrison's run on Action. Previously I had stopped short of the finale because the story just wasn't making sense to me. Morrison's stuff always makes much more sense when you read it at once. I must say that I really enjoyed the run all the way through, even the issues that I had found a little dull the first time around. It was also nice to pick up on all the little details and foreshadowing throughout the series. One thing I did miss though, is what use was Glenmorgan's tie?

The art in the new issue of Action was repulsive, which just made Super-Batman which I read a minute later appear to be all the more fantastic.

In the Hybrid story, Action 19 - 21, it seems the story is still taking place in the past, yet by the end of Morrison's arc we were clearly in the present. Is this the consensus?

It seems to have taken place "one year ago".


Kind of a big DC week this week. Trinity War finally starts in "Justice League#22", we also have the second part of Zero Year in "Batman #22". My other pulls are "Astro City #2" and "Superman: Unchained #2".

Matt Kindt is writing JLA #8. Is Johns leaving or is this just a fill-in during the big event?
