I was being too flippant. I know I'm not alone mourning the end of the title: I thought Vendetti had some interesting ideas going forward.

Out of the zero year tie-ins that I'm not currently reading right now, I will probably check out the "Batgirl" one (this Margueritte Bennett seems to be making a name for herself right now), Catwoman, Nightwing, and maybe Green Arrow.

I remember when "Zero Year" was contained in one title, as though it were yesterday. Because it basically was yesterday. Dick Grayson as vigilante before being Robin. Stop grasping those straws. I only have a few straws left.

Also: nobody is reading Demon Knights anymore, but for those reading Wonder Woman and wondering if Hephaestus lied to Diana about what Amazons do after "mating"? Exoristos essentially confirms it in a late issue in Venditti's run.
I thought that she already kinda confirmed it. Wasn't that why she was banished?

What is the last issue of Demon Knights?
I dropped it at issue #18

Just read Batman #23. It was pretty good but felt a little weaker than the previous Zero Year issues. I did like the scene where Alfred was stitching up Bruce though.

^ I thought the backup was the best part of the book.

I'm starting to see ads for Forever Evil and I must admit I am a bit intrigued.

Forever Evil is promising to be more interesting than Trinity War is. I'm looking forward to it.

That they kill or maim the men involved. It caused an Internet firestorm - "not MY Amazons!!!" level of anger.

Hound Of UIster, do you mean she left the island, told people the secret, and then came back and was exiled for having done so? I don't recall that. There was some online speculation that she was the Amazon seen reaching for her baby son in the panel accompanying Hephesteaus' story in Wonder Woman 7, or someone who was in the same situtation, but I don't remember that ever being confirmed. She just says something about not being able to follow Amazon "drills and codes of conduct" in the issue I'm talking about, when Hippolyta offers to rescind the exile.

I'm way behind on Smallville, but I picked up the latest issue and flipped through it. I can't wait to see Smallville's version of Wonder Woman in action. I didn't like the art though. Looks like the characters have taken on a new look and that kind of takes me out of thinking this is an extension of Smallville.

We do have a Smallville Season 11 discussion thread The art was inconsistent at the start of the book, but has improved considerably since the first couple of "episodes". It is really Q's writing that is key to the book and that links it to the series proper.
