I just thought of something...if Azzarello is only just introducing the New Gods now in "Wonder Woman"...what does this mean regarding the opening arc of "Justice League" five years in the past where we saw the team confront and learn of Darkseid? Is this already a contradiction in continuity? Or is this something else entirely? Any thoughts? I can't be the only one who's thought about this since the big reveal.
I hadn't thought about it, to be honest. Sort of forgotten the first Justice League arc.

Learning about Darkseid in no way implys learning about the New Gods I mean they were a little busy to do research into the subject at the time.For all we know the New Gods may have been beaten by Darkseid and are only now returning, or they may have lost their boom tube tech and couldnt travel between dimensions to lend us a hand five years ago. Or they may have been busy doing something else, who knows.
So, no, no contradiction in this whatsoever.

Andy Diggle to take over Action...?

My only reading experience with Diggle is the less than spectacular Marvel Daredevil mini-event Shadowland.

Yeah that was pretty much only my experience with him. "Shadowland" has been reviled by most fans. I like how Rich talks about the "origin" of this story though LOL. He could be interesting, but he could be also talking about something else...who knows at this point.

It's where he gets a lot of stories there is a gang of writers, artists, liggers and hangers-on who meet regularly in London.

Didn't he write an Adam Strange mini? I liked that as I recall.

They're doing a Robot Chicken variant cover for Aquaman #12.

Yeah. The special is next month I think. That's not a bad cover actually.

Unless it's a writer I really like, I think I'm dropping Action after Morrison leaves.

^ I feel the same way. Especially if they deviate too much from what he's already brought. That kind of what makes Action "special" and unique IMO.

That was forced on him by Marvel editorial. The same deal with the DD open ending from the previous run.

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

I was thinking about it today, and I realized the only four books I care about anymore from DC are Green Lantern, Batman, Batman & Robin, and Action. I don't count Batman Inc since it's a mini. And when Morrison leaves Action it'll be down to three. I used to be invested in about a dozen books back in the late 2000s...

^ Same. I'm currently reading the following: (Batman, Incorporated isn't really a mini...it's just continuing Morrison's run. I don't count it because it was shifted from the DCU)

-Action Comics (will drop this depending on the writer post Morrison
-Aquaman
-Batman
-Wonder Woman

Speaking of Aquaman...uh oh.

This unnecessary shuffle is not good for Aquaman. All the good will built up since Blackest Night will once again go away when whoever the next writer is has no understanding of the character and plays to the material that people like to mock. We saw it after Peter David's run. It didn't matter how much respect Arthur had gained. A few arcs under a mediocre writer and comicdom acted once again as if Aquaman was just a joke.
