I just read The parasite issue and I thought it was quite good. I really enjoyed it.

Francis Manapul and Brian Buccello are apparently moving to "Detective Comics" which should be interesting, and might be enough to get me interested in the title again.

Is anyone planning on picking up the new Superman/Wonder Woman comic launching this month? Tony Daniel in doing the art so I am looking forward to it.

I have to say I really do not like Tyler Kirkham's art in Action Comics. There's too much of a manga look to Superman's facial expressions.

I don't like it either. I'm wondering if we'll get the rumoured John Jr. "Superman" book at NYCC announced. Can't wait until Pak's run starts on "Action Comics".

I would love to see JRJR's take on Supes.

Forever Evil #2: finally! the storyline advances! Is it just me or does Finch's art not look as good as his Marvel days?

I actually enjoyed the Wrath arc on Detective, I wasn't reading it before that. The art was really good.

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

I was away from the comic shop for a couple weeks and got caught up today. The only other Villains Month title I picked up was Rogues. They fixed one Forever Evil continuity error with Mirror Master being out of the mirror world, but in the process created another. Glider disappeared pulling Mirror Master out, but she appears in the big villain spread in Forever Evil #1. Oy vey!

Forever Evil #2 was pretty enjoyable as well. I'm glad to see Luthor getting some cool stuff to do. He's been far too sidelined in the New 52.

Also picked up Green Lantern. Only a few issues in, and already we're back to the big Lantern family crossovers. Apparently the plan is for these books to be interconnected like never before. Even more connected than in the Johns days? Yeesh. Oh well, at least I'm a huge Green Lantern fan and have no problem reading four different books. As long as the keep the quality as consistently good as they have, I'm with it.

For what it's worth, I didn't like his art on Green Lantern Corps a few years ago (between Blackest Night and "War of the Green Lanterns"). It was such a stark difference to Patrick Gleason.

I agree. The art does not seem to go with the feel of the current Superman universe. I have actually enjoyed most of Superman and Action Comics in the new 52, and like the new feel of the character but want the art to reflect that. RM's art with Morrison's story worked because the feel was one of combining the Superman of the past with the present (in terms of his comics history as well as the actual plot) and I thought that worked, but for the most part I want Superman to be not cartoonish.

I was originally not going to post this since Rich has stated all of these aren't true...but some of them certainly look plausible, and worth at least some discussion.

DC hasn't really teased anything yet like Marvel has.

I might check out Booster Gold for nostalgia's sake. I'm also kind of curious to see where he disappeared to at the end of JLI.

More like Rich's secret sauce at DC has stopped telling him things and he is now resorting to stealing posts from 4chan.

I was more meaning DC in general hasn't really teased anything for NYCC. Marvel has had the teasers, but yeah...Rich really hasn't had any DC scoops in a while, and even then just teases whatever they maybe instead of outright spoiling it. I have wondered if being owned by Avatar Press now has caused any kind of internal changes at Bleeding Cool.
