Unlikely.

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

I love comic shops and always will...I unfortunately can't get out to mine all the time though. The one I go to is in downtown Vancouver and nearly a good two hour bus and Sky Train ride. There is one closer to me but that's even a good hour away. I can remember spending literally hours in the one I used to frequent as a kid.

You're still waiting for the return of 8-tracks and betamax, aren't you?

Batgirl #4: I loved the idea of an app that criminals can use to let eachother know where Batman is. Have you seen Batman? Just hit a button on your phone, indicating his location. Modern tech is catching up with Bats. The only thing I don't like about Batgirl is that she doesn't come off like a frightening creature of the night. She's just a young woman, acting like a regular person, but in a costume. Still a great title though and I like how well they're fleshing out Barbara as a person.
That's because she isn't Batman and isn't trying to be.
Maybe she should.

I really like Batgirl and what they're doing with her, but while reading, I just got to thinking that she needs to come off as more than just a regular girl in a costume. A bit more mystery and a more menacing aura would be a better fit. Hugging and chatting with victims she just rescued seems more appropriate for a celebrity appearing at the mall than a crime fighter. Some superheroes can get away with that because their powers are formidable enough, but people like Batman and Batgirl don't have that image or that advantage.

Well, she's a regular girl who can kick your ass. There's also the factor of underestimating here because she's a girl.

And of course this is Gotham City, where criminals get their butts handed to them by 13 year olds in green shorts and pixie boots.

Barbara is relearning how to be Batgirl again. That's the point of the arc. Also Babs has never been a menacing creature of the night...as Santa Kang stated Babs has no interest in Bruce's gimmick. She is and always has been her own persona and way of fighting crime. Cassandra Cain is more in the mold of what you're referring to as a creature of the night. Silent and deadly. Babs is the opposite, she's very much like Nightwing...in your face and gets the job done while trying to have a little bit of fun.

I did notice that a Barnes and Noble near me is stocking more comics than I recall seeing there before. Maybe 40 or so titles across DC, Marvel, and Dark Horse.

Oh, and Archie!

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

Mike Marts on the Bat Family in 2012...rather interesting that Morrison gets a couple of sentences mention. Perhaps the torch has already been passed? Batman, Inc was established as taking place prior to the relaunch and it would seem that the conclusion or "season two" will take place before, which obviously makes since given the status quo. Perhaps Bruce dissolves Batman, Inc at the end of Morrison's run? Thoughts?

So, how do the crossovers fall into the reboot?

Avengers/JLA or Marvel vs DC or others.

I had been under the impression that elements of these lived on in the DCU like the egg.

Probably not in the nuDCU. Even in the olDCU they were pretty much forgotten.
