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

DC can't use the name Captain Marvel any more...but yeah, his characterization has been not great at all. Basically right now I'm down to I believe six books "Action Comics", "Aquaman", "Batman", "Batman and Robin", "Batman Incorporated", and "Wonder Woman". I miss the DCU more than I have had interest in the New 52.

Aside from Green Lantern, Batman, Batman and Robin, and Action Comics... I'm extremely disappointed with the reboot. I miss the old continuity.

That doesn't make any sense. Granted, they couldn't use it in their titles or advertising, but the character has been there with that name long before Marvel came up with their Captain Marvel (which they only did so they could get that trademark).

They CAN use it inside books, not on covers. I think they're just moving away from using it in the books so to be consistent with the covers. From a business point of view, not a bad decisions. From a nostalgia point of view: el sucko.

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

Man, I'm still on a good number of books and have even picked up more since the Second Wave started, I've been enjoying pretty much everything I've been reading. (Though two of the Batman titles I'm following will be dropped when done with the current arcs. I've got to cut back somewhere.)

But, I'm not asking for much and I find it easier to get into without the weight of all of the backstories and such from the years I've not been reading comics. It just feels good to have something of a "fresh start" from which to start over again.

^ I'm not complaining about rebooting the DCU. I'm complaining about how they did it, or rather its results.

Most of these childish complaints boil down to nostalgia and continuity, the two things killing the comics industry.

Very true. I been reading comics for 40 years. Seen a lot of changes. Bottom line is enjoy the stories and don't get caught up in the nostalgia and minutia.

^ Agreed. Have been reading a collecting for 34 years and have seen continuity come and go and still enjoy reading my books every month. I have definitely enjoyed this reboot the most since the one done for COIE. All the others inbetween were very half assed compared to this. I am seeing more new facets explored with characters than in a long time and while I dont agree with all the changes(Firestorm, Storm Watch, a few others) I am really enjoying most of the line.

I'm still buying Wonder Woman, Action, Demon Knights, All Star Western, Justice League Dark, Justice League, Worlds' Finest, I Vampire, and Frankenstein. Sometimes DC Presents, and I usually catch up on Aquaman eventually.

Agreed. I like what I like of the nu52... One of the titles I really like is Earth 2 because it IS so different.

The reboot itself isn't the problem with many of the titles, as with all things its the execution.

Anyone care about the Young Justice (Teen Titans, ect. not the show) books? They did the panel earlier today, but didn't really seem to reveal anything more than the plots of the #0s.

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

It would have been nice if the changes were even more radical. You know, I real reset with everything starting over.

Anyway...

Justice League Dark #9 and #10: An excellent two issues. Things have really picked up with the new arc. Constantine is a pretty rich character, I like the concepts and ideas they're using when it comes to the magic, and I like the story and where it's going eventhough it's somewhat predictable. It's my favorite title this month.

I sort of would liked to have seen that too. A new, fresh, hard reboot. Especially in the Batman book(s.)
