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

The latest Batman and Robin just makes me wish even more that the rumored Robins book was actually happening. There's so much potential in that concept. In this last arc, the stuff between the Robins has been great, and the rest of it not so much. I really loved the part where Dick shows exactly why he is and always shall be one of my favorite characters in the DC Universe. I can't help but feel that Bruce is actually doing more damage than help in the way he handles Damian, and their dynamic is nowhere near as good as the one that Damian had with Dick. These two just need to be paired back up again, like Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner need to be paired again (sorry, I'll bring that out any chance I get.)

Snyder is hinting on twitter that he is replacing Morrison on Action.

It'll be interesting if Harper becomes another Robin. (What happens to Damien? I dunno... Batman sends him to military school to get his ass straightened out or something. Harper seems to me like she'd pretty useful to have.)

What happens to Damian? Hopefully his own solo series written by Jeff Lemaire! Hey...a fan can dream!

Military school for a kid who's been conditioned and trained by the League of Assassins? No. I'd like to see him be paired back with Nightwing.

I don't see Harper being molded into another Robin. I see her becoming a lot like Sasha (except without the bodyguard role or the romance given Harper's age).


@House of UIster are you talking about his "Sad Superman Sad" post because that's the only Superman reference I could find in the last day or so on his account.

More like Stephanie/Spoiler or Cassandra/Batgirl.

Yeah Cas too...that's a better comparison than Sasha. Again though, Harper would seem to be why Stephanie is not being used right now.

How is Harper like Steph? I only know Steph as a supporting character in the Tim Drake Robin series.

I didn't say Harper is like Steph...I said that it's possible that her creation is why Stephanie hasn't been around in the 52'Verse. Her curiosity and resourcefulness remind me of Stephanie and of a younger Barbara Gordon when she first became interested in Bruce's exploits as Batman. I believe she will become Bruce's "pet project" in the coming months.

I dunno. I don't see a character like Harper forcing Steph off the stage. Steph's a full fledged Bat. No shortage those on stage in the DCU. Batgirl, Batwoman, Catwoman and to a lesser extent Huntress being front and center probably have more to do with Steph and Cass being off stage than than Harper.

Pretty much everyone who catches Batman's eye is curious and resourceful.

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

That's true. I still can't explain why DC has made their stance on Steph that it has. Harper's presence just was a possible theory. Steph's not a full fledged Bat though...she was demoted back to Spoiler when the relaunch happened. DC's said so many things about Stephanie which is why fans of hers are so frustrated right now. Anyway as Bruce would say "Enough!!!"

Harper's awesome. I'm really looking forward to seeing what Snyder does with her, and oh the colouring of this issue totally made me think of Scott Pilgrim. Maybe that's why I like Harper so much, she reminds me of Romana

The coloring art in the book for me was so-so and the change in art-style was a bit jarring. I'm glad the issue was good because when the first page named a few different inkers/artists/colorers and what pages they did I was concerned.

Interview with the guest artist on the DC Source Blog.

Scott Snyder denied taking over Action Comics on twitter, stated he has too much work to do still in Gotham.

As awesome as Snyder on Superman would be, it's probably for the best that he doesn't. This would mean four different ongoing titles that he would be working on. I wouldn't want him to stretch himself too thin at the cost of one of his other titles, like Johns is doing right now.

Batman November Solicits.

http://www.newsarama.com/php/multime....php?aid=47175


Also more Stephanie Brown shenanigans courtesy of Dan Didio...so now Steph doesn't even exist...yet.

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/08/...yet-dan-didio/

I can't decide if DC has been joking around with us or dicking around. This has to be the most bizarre way to treat fans of a character that I've ever seen a company take before.


Not sure how I missed this...but Keith Griffen was announced as the new writer (after only one issue so far!!!) of "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe".

I'll admit this isn't the best fan film I've seem around the net, but Blastr posted a Stephanie Brown Fan Film someone made a couple weeks ago.
