I was not expecting the news I got when you said Al Rio wouldn't be with us anymore.
I figured just on a book...not life.
Very sad that something drove him to those ends.

Action Comics, that's all I'm getting tomorrow, I think I'm going to drop Detective.

I still haven't gotten the Donatello one-shot for TMNT so I'll likely get that tomorrow.

EDIT: Okay, I just looked at the plot-tease for DC on DC's website, looks like it might be an interesting issue, actually. Maybe I will pick it up.

Just Action Comics for me. Grant Morrison writing the Legion!!! Can't get better than this for me.

Big Announcement is that Before Watchman is happening...the creative teams and prequel books revealed. I posted the article in my Watchmen 2 thread. I can't help but be a little excited about this. Some of you might be, others mostly probably not.

Two projects for JMS. I guess we should see if he actually finishes them before we worry about what they might contain.

I'm excited for both of his projects, and don't forget we have volume two of Superman: Earth One to look forward too sometime late this year.

They're certainly interesting teams. Wein is a real Silver Age guy, which will look interesting given that Watchmen both reflected and ended the Silver Age; Azarello is very much a product of that shift, one of the real talents who's actually done something with the legacy of that shift.

Darwyn Cooke is a great choice for Minutemen.

I'm surprised Bleeding Cool's article didn't have multiple links saying how awesome they were for having this information before anyone else and that evil DC made them take it down.

Got to say, I wasn't much impressed with Action this month, I thought there was too much focus on the Legion and the story-telling seemed sort of... spastic. I wasn't really sure what was happening and where most of the time. It seemed like a lot of the goofier stuff that happened in "All Star Superman" was in play here and it didn't work much for me. But I can't say I'm much a fan of The Legion. It was, overall, an okay book but I may need to give it another read to see if it's more clear a second time around.

I did like the second part of the book focusing on Clark's last days in Smallville.

Swamp Thing > Stormwatch > Action > Animal Man > Batwing

It's a real pity Cornell is off Stormwatch. He seems to have intended to integrate the concept of the Authority/Stormwatch/Planetary together. Guess DC doesn't want to play with big ideas like Cornell's. I thought it was also interesting that Hawksmoor's city power allows him also to connect with large scale networks such as the city ship that serves as Stormwatchs HQ.

Swamp Thing I thought was the most plot heavy. The champion of the Rot is created and everyone essentially dies.

Batwing: Massacre's identity is really a no-brainer at the point. Given that he is the polar opposite of Batwing and embraced the brutality and violence that the latter has rejected. We also see a connection to Court of Owls story as Batwing makes his way to Gotham.
