Sorry about that. Not sure what happened.

^ That was what I was thinking. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Cass eventually as well.

The Steph announcement aside, I'm really excited for this.

Superman panel....nothing much of interest here I don't think.

I wonder if Lobdell was 'being funny' about Superboy. That seems like a huge thing to just let out there.

^ I don't think he was kidding or joking at all about the death of Superboy. It seems like there is a plan to focus on John Lane Kent.

I am looking forward to the start of Pak's run on Action Comics.

Are people happy with the Superman franchise reboot? I mostly hate it... I was reading my trade of "Superman in Exile" the other day and to me this is what Superman should be; the polite optimist who always does the right thing, the moral authority of the DCU who everyone respects.

And what they did to Superboy and Supergirl is even more messed up!

Some elements of it I like, some I don't. The article mentions that they've got the next year planned out though...so we'll see. I'm most looking forward to Pak's Action Comics run. It seems like Diana and Clark won't last forever given the future Superboy.

Just read "Batman #24" and thought it was amazing. This is really how they should have started this title. I love the New 52 origin costume, nice touch with the purple gloves! The reveal of the Riddler in the epilogue was amazing...and I agree about wishing Capullo was used, but it was still incredible.

I'm glad that they showed us where the Justice League in the new issue of JLA. But it's weird that the JLA book is starring the Justice League team and not the JLA team. It seems odd to throw them in super-prison though. I would think the Syndicate would either a) kill them or b) maroon them on Earth-3.

I find a weird choice to make Two-Face's acid origin done by a woman... and apparently this six issue storyline is going to take place between the ending of Bat Inc and the beginning of Trinity War...

Rogues' Rebellion was pretty fun. Of course the Rogues aren't gonna stand for the Secret Society's crap. They're better than that. They have a code. I really enjoyed watching them kick some ass. Though, I've always thought that the Rogues were such a fun bunch that I would read them sitting around watching TV, or something.

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

I don't think the Crime Syndicate wants to outright kill the Justice League, or else they would have already done so, and it sounds like Earth-3 is a lost cause so I doubt marooning them their was an option.

Finished Batman and Two-Face #24...yes this continues the grief arc that was the previous arc for Batman and Robin. I thought that was clear myself. I actually really enjoyed 52'Verse's Two-Face origin story. This Erin McKillen. It also seeds stuff for the upcoming war against Ra's. This book has been great now for a while now.

You would think they would let them finish off the arc, or at least finish the issues they had started to work on.

Didn't you follow the bad press last month?

The storyline was leading towards a big gay wedding between Maggie Sawyer and Batwoman which DC has decided is morally objectionable.

*ALL* marriages are morally objectionable in the DC universe! Take that lesson to heart, kids!

(not that kids read comics anymore. Or can afford them. FOUR BUCKS AN ISSUE?!)

Actually considering how easy it is to pirate comics, you would think that kids would be downloading a few comic books now and then when "collections" show up in the same place where they are downloading their Katee Perry songs.

So even though comics are "free" they still don't care.

How sad.
