GL books are basically being written by editorial now.

I've thought Green Lantern has been fairly strong since Johns left. The concept of the emotional spectrum being a finite resource has turned the titles on their heads. Now, the Corps has had the entire universe turned against them. This is great stuff. Red Lanterns in particular had really turned around. It was a pretty lame book before, but now it's one of the most fun DC is publishing right now.

The "Lights Out" crossover was moderately entertaining, but everything else has been pretty uninteresting. I might drop GLC and GL:NG but stick with GL...

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

Just finished reading Action Comics #26 and Batman/Superman #7. So happy that Greg Pak is writing both of these. He's doing fantastic work getting inside of Clark's head and making him feel human and relatable, while still showing that alien/superhero side of him. I also love 52'Verse Lana Lang. I like 52'Verse Hiro/Toyman as well, and while I was less enamored of the video game meta story with Mongul, it was an interesting way of introducing the villain.

Pak-Action Comics has been better than average so far, but this video game storyline in Bat/Supes was just dumb.

It was underwhelming I agree, but really was set up to introduce 52'Verse Hiro.

Green Arrow, Batman, Superman Unchained, Action Comics, Animal Man/Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman and Justice League/JLA are probably not handled by editorial.

It's very apparent with the Lantern titles.

I meant to post this yesterday but forgot, but apparently we're about to get a whole slew of new books and cancellations announced. Secret Origins seems to be confirmed.

Also the link the other reported books (from the same person who did the previous list a few months back if you all remember, he got a lot wrong, but most of them happened).

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/01/...rom-dc-comics/

Also the poster states these aren't starting in April as Bleeding Cool originally reported, but slated for June. I wonder if the new "Superman" creative team will be the long rumoured John Jr/mystery writer announcement?

Is "mystery writer" Mark Millar?

Aquaman and The Others would be cool if Johns were writing it, but the most disappointing thing about the new 52 is how we now have basically mainstream characters headlining the series and the majority of the innovative concepts have been abandoned.

@HoundofUISter...it very well could be. Bleeding Cool ran a story last week where they quoted from Millar whom hinted he very well might be making a "special case". If this actually does happen...it could be huge.

Yeah, I jumped on board with characters and concepts I never tried before only to be rewarded with cancellations.

That I read a year+ of and now cancelled:
Resurrection Man
I, Vampire
Frankenstein Agent of Shade
Demon Knights
Sword of Amethyst(ok 8 issues)
Captain Atom
Mister Terrific

I'm back to just reading most DC in TPB again with exception of Swamp Thing, Aquaman and JLD

It seems Marvels new wave of All-New Marvel Now is picking up the attempt at characters who've been overlooked a chance for awhile.
Black Widow
Iron Patriot
Elektra
Moon Knight
Ghost Rider(4th one, new character)
Invaders
She-Hulk(green)
New Warriors
Iron Fist
Silver Surfer
Ms.Marvel(2nd one, new character not Danvers)

We still need Blue Lantern and Star Sapphire titles.
I'd read a Brian Q. Miller Stephanie Brown as a Blue Lantern series.

(The final issue of the Stephanie Batgirl series showed her as a Blue Lantern. Barbara was a Green Lantern. And Damian was a Red Lantern.)
