Oh, duh! I read his entire Cap run It was great up to Reborn, then it became insufferably boring.

The new reboot with the Queen Hydra is actually pretty good even if the first few issues were pretty slow. And his Winter Soldier is just amazing.

I read I think 7 issues of the new Cap series before I finally gave up. The villains were incredibly lame and uninteresting, and once the McNiven art was gone, there was no point staying.

He did indeed work on "Batman" for three years I believe, and was the writer on Darwyn Cooke's revamp of "Catwoman" I agree with the Brubaker comparison. I was even thinking that Snyder has a little Greg Ruka in him.
Brubaker also did the "Gotham Central" series for DC, together with Rucka.

^ Indeed he did...I completely forgot. Spoilers for Justice League #7...Rich is comparing the 52'Verse Justice League to the Authority, which is an interesting comparison. Steve Trevor seems to be their spokesperson, and his demeanour reminds me of Jack Hawksmoor a bit. Damn it...I might have to pick this up...this is a Jim Leeless issue as well.

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/03/...new-authority/

I'll be picking up the following today:

-Batman #7
-Supergirl #7 (this is this one's last chance for me)
-Wonder Woman #7

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

Another Greg Capullo interview...is it just me or have Snyder and Capullo done a lot of talking about Court of Owls in the last month or two? It seems like they're doing interviews every other week!

http://www.newsarama.com/comics/greg...t-of-owls.html

Interesting goings on in "Batman" with the Court of Owls story arc. Snyder really seems to be making an effort to cement them into Bruce's past and the mythos. I am guessing that all of this is a precursor to whatever the "game changing" arc is going to be later in the year.

This has been pretty evident since Gates of Gotham even more so with All-Star Western.

Not a single DC book this week.
Was there a Dark title? If so my LCS was out when I went at Lunchtime.

Justice League #7: Did I just flip through a good Justice League issue? I think I might have done just that. Interesting things revealed in this issue, the first present day 52'Verse issue of the book. Steve Trevor is part of some kind of special metahuman relations task force and also liasons with the League. We're introduced to the New 52 version of Etta Candy. Batman is still an ass, Hal is still a stupid ass, and I liked the Trevor/Diana relationship played out in the book. Jim Lee was missed in this issue.
