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

Did Swamp Thing not come out this week?
I thought it and Animal Man were on the shipping schedule. And AM came out this week.

I'm likely going to drop Animal Man and pick up the Gemworld book, proper name escapes me at the moment...Sword and Sorcery?

You were close, it's Sword of Sorcery.

Swamp Thing was this week and it was a pretty solid issue too.

Got Earth 2 #1 second printing today as well as the Batman Earth One GN.


Earth 2 #1 crosses over with World's Finest #1. If you can get a hold of that, you'll get a glimpse into what happened.
I'll get that likely when its second printing hits shelves.

Finished the Batman Earth One Graphic Novel. Very good, enjoyed it greatly. Fantastic art, good story, hell this would make for a good movie adaptation.

DCcomics.com has Swamp Thing as a July 11th release.

They used to both ship the first Wednesday of the month, not sure why they aren't this month.

"Swamp Thing" #11 did come out Thursday (Wed in Canada). Not sure what the confusion is about.

It's not on Diamond's shipping list. It's not available via Comixology. And it's listed as on sale next week on DCcomics.com.

Not saying your store didn't get copies, but you weren't supposed to.

the comic shops get freeshit and advance copies to suck them into subscriptions for books they don't understand might be good. Sometimes these freebies are instantly put on the shelf because the boss and his/her monkeys have absolutely no interest in the topic.

Maybe it was something else I was looking at then, I do seem to remember seeing it on the shelf though.

Looks like we might FINALLY get Grant Morrison's long promised and delayed Multiversity (I think it was announced the same time as Batman Earth One, or seems like it) next year.

The fascist version is the Earth-X with the Nazi Superman from Final Crisis. The celebrity version is the Earth-8 (the 90s DCU) he has talked about. The pulp versions probably is the Earth that was briefly seen from Superman Beyond with a Doc Savage + Dr. Fate amalgam.

Yeah, I asked my closest guy and he said no, ST#11 did not come out this week.
He mentioned the remote possibility of someone getting a shops copy of the advance books, some stores still got those but not his.
He mentioned regional shipping, and if it was in Canada and you saw it perhaps that was the case.

He agreed they both used to ship at the same time. He then said but hey Wolverine #310 is shipping two weeks before #309 so who knows what's going on in those warehouses.


I read Animal Man #11 last night and Buddy has been given partial shape shifting powers for when he now assumes an animal power. Mediocore story thus far. I've only been reading this long for the ST crossover which I hoped would bring the quality, imo, of Animal Man up.
