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

I don't get the Stephanie Brown hate (if it is such, the Bleeding Cool article was skeptical). I liked the character and I enjoyed her stint as Batgirl more than I am with Barbara back behind the cowl, I'm sorry to say. Stephanie was a breath of fresh air as Robin and as Batgirl.

I was really looking forward to seeing her in Smallville Season 11, so to find out they are not using her, really sucks.

Greg Capullo doesn't seem to thrilled with what the November Solicits revealed of the revamped Joker.

I actually think removing the Jokers face skin was a terrible idea and hope that this mini arc can redeem that. In any case I will soon have my Sideshow Joker in hand and thats all that matters.

Bleeding Cool suggests that Ivan Reis may join Geoff Johns on "Justice League" if Jim Lee departs as previously reported on their site. They also mention a possibility of a fourth wave of books. This would be a little disappointing to me as I've enjoyed Ivan's work a whole lot on "Aquaman".

So true, especially since come first of the year Aquaman is currently the lone DC book I plan to be getting monthly.

It's to bad Johns isn't leaving JL.

The book should improve without Jim Lee doing the story plotting behind the scenes.

Yeah, I refuse to believe that it is actually Johns writing Justice League. The characterization of Hal and Arthur are so inconsistent with their characterizations in their solo titles, both of which are also written by Johns.

Lee should concentrate on the video games and leave the comics to those who are interested in them.

For the next 43 hours or so, you can get a 12 issue sub to some DC titles at the price the comics should cost every day - about one dollar an issue. Check it out:

Yup thats as bad as I had feared. Nothing about this makes the Joker any more creepy, scary or psycho to me. But I guess the NU52 has to up the anty with all their characters or at least as far as the creators and editors are concerned.

Sigh. Yeah, that doesn't really interest me all that much. But, maybe the story will be better and more interesting than the image. Context is important.

But, yet, again, focusing more on an ever aging audience. It seems they have giving up completely about finding a younger audience that might be lured into reading comics.

Not too impressed by the New Look Joker. It won't last anyway. They can't put Staple-Face, Strappy Headed Joker on tee-shirts and lunch boxes.

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

Hey everyone, I've recently been reading my way through the various Crises and am interested in starting reading the new 52 comics. I'm wondering if these stories really do provide a decent new starting point for the characters, or if they simply proceed on with the continuing stories (but with new numbers and a few retcons). In short, would I be lost?
