I have a question. Is there a new multiverse after Flashpoint or is it the same multiverse as before with only New Earth changed?
New. As far as we know. This Earth 2 is not the Earth 2 where superheroes fought in WWII.
But was that what it was in the original New 52? I don't think we ever saw Earth 2, did we?

Enjoyed both Earth2 and Phantom Stranger this week. Also really liked the story in Injustice Gods Among us, the art not so much.

Thanks. Looks just like the seventies version from when I was a kid!

Some have changed, some are the same such as the President Superman world or the World of Young Justice.

The YJ Earth is Earth 12.
EDIT: Oops, I mean 16, 12 is the Batman Beyond world.

So, what DC books are we sticking with now?

Green Lantern. GLC. GL: New Guardians.
Batman. Batman & Robin. Batman Inc (mini series).
Action Comics. Superman.
Justice League. Aquaman. World's Finest.

I'm on the verge of dropping Superman and Aquaman and GL:NG... I just gave up on Earth Two.

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

Why are you on the verge of dropping "Aquaman" out of curiosity? I would say that it's been outstandingly consistent since the start, with perhaps a single sub-par issue in the second arc. This is what I'm reading currently:

-Action Comics (have decided to give Diggle and Daniel a chance after Morrison concludes)
-Aquaman (things are heating up with the Throne of Atlantis and Johns continues to do excellent work on this book)
-Batman
-Batman Incorporated
-Justice League (which I recently picked back up, Johns is great left alone )
-He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Ongoing (upcoming)
-Superman
-Wonder Woman

Once Batman Incorporated concludes in May I'll be back down to seven books, which is what I've been maintaining since the relaunch happened. Action Comics will be on a short leash under Diggle, and Superman already is with Lobdell...it's been surprisingly decent. I am just looking forward to the conclusion of this H'el arc. So potentially before summer starts I could be at five books.

I'm trying to drop as many books as my addiction allows, and the two arcs had nice art but didn't blow me away. The first one was just sea monsters, and I didn't care about this new made up team from the past. That said, Throne of Atlantis has been great. But Reis and Johns are leaving the title so that'll be a good dropping point. I'm sure it'll quickly go to seed with a new writer.

Reis has already left I believe and working with Johns on Justice League, and Johns was supposed to leave I believe around issue 16 (following the Throne of Atlantis arc) as originally reported last fall, but as of the May Solicits Johns is still listed as the writer and that's issue 20. So things as usual with DC could have changed

Batman
Batman & Robin
Batman The Dark Knight
Batwoman
Blue Beetle(cancelled)

Looking forward to adding JLA to the list and that will leave me around 26 books or so until I find out what new books they will be releasing to fill the void.

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

For right now it's:

Action Comics (may drop after Morrison)
Aquaman
Batman
Batman Incorporated
Earth-2
The Flash
Green Lantern
Green Lantern Corps
Green Lantern New Guardians
Justice League
Nightwing
Wonder Woman

I just dropped Batman & Robin and Batgirl now that the DotF arc has concluded. Neither had been setting my word alight for quite a while. I heard the Batman & Robin Annual was really good, though, so I may have to go back and pick that up.

I never heard anything about Johns leaving Aquaman. I know it was rumored after Reis left for Justice league, but that was debunked. I really hope he doesn't for a good long while. Johns has made me love the character.

It would appear the DC creative summit is about to begin...

Really? I think E2 is the most interesting of all of the nu52. What didn't you like?
