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

I have to admit...I'll be getting Justice League #12 tomorrow. I'm curious about this and it has a lot of potential if done right. I liked their paring in "Kingdom Come" and as mentioned in the article they've had an interesting romantic past.

The notion that Clark and Lois "will likely never date" did not come from Lee, Johns or anyone at DC and is likely an extrapolation from the article's writer.

It's a good thing DC just hired that new PR guy. Putting him to work already it looks like

Meh, I'll read spoilers for it. I just can't bring myself to pick up this book again until a new team takes it over.

I'm almost convinced that the tragic event that brings them together is the death of Hal Jordan. We know a Lantern will die in Green Lantern Annual tomorrow, and the end of Green Lantern #12 had Black Hand reading from the book of black that Hal Jordan will be the greatest Black Lantern. Unless of course, all these clues are one big fakeout. Right now, though, it looks like Hal's number is up, and the main Green Lantern title will be taken over by the new guy. That would actually be a pretty bold move for them only one year into their big reboot. It would also mean that Geoff Johns would have overseen the resurrection and second death of Hal, interestingly enough. Also, the fact that Van Schiver is doing the art on this one could potentially be another clue. Van Schiver drew Rebirth, and bringing him on to draw Annual #1 could be meant as bringing things full circle.

Of course, this is still speculation, and come tomorrow I could be proven completely wrong.

I have seen speculation that something might happen to Guy Gardner...but i haven't been honestly following GL at all since the first issue of New 52 "Green Lantern". Hal's death would be huge...again.

Michael's reaction to Clark and Diana is awesome.

I've forgotten, isn't Booster one of the few who have previous knowledge of the DCU? I'm assuming the Legion still do since they referenced Flashpoint in the first issue of the Legion Lost book.

I think the last panel of Booster's solo series implied that he remembered a little longer than everyone else, and then the knowledge just faded.

A tease of what's to come in the second year of Justice League.

I plan to catch up on Justice League today, I guess. Might pick up the Superman annual, although I haven't been reading Superman.

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

I was surprised by how much seemed to actually happen in Justice League 11, now that I've caught up. The thing that's stuck with me most of the odd assertion that Malcolm Gladwell and Stephen King are influential contemporary authors, along woth Doris Lessing (not that I object to Lessing, but the name doesn't immediatey leap to mind). A great deal happens in JL 12, but it feels a little forced.

But it is an organic narrative compared to whatever the heck happened in Justice League International's annual. Hoo boy. The kiss was televised? By who? A major event happens to Blue Beetle in another title altogether? I think this might be the first mention of Rip, and a future Booster implies that a Booster was still flipping around solving time problems even if the one in JLI was not. OMAC has a new daddy.

Aquaman was my only DC book today.
I did flip through JLA and JLI annual. The "kiss" is referenced in JLI on one page, seems someone has a hidden camera on the moment via Brother Eye I'm guessing.

Non-DC
Infernal Man-Thing #3 of 3
Green Hornet #27 (when this arc is over I'll be dropping it)
TMNT micro #7 - April

Previews said X-O Man of War was solicited did anyone else see that at their LCS today? Mine was out and sadly the clerks aren't that tuned in so I didn't ask if it came in and they sold out.

It might just be cameras in the Hall of Justice, I guess.

Isn't the author who wrote the book on the Justice League supposed to be hinted at some major role? Again, I'm not reading, just pure speculation on what I remember from the opening arc. Haven't got the issue yet.

Yes, he does, but that arc just ended with 11 (his name is David Graves).
