Stargirl and J'Onn J'onzz are the only reasons I'm getting the next issue. I've loved Courtney since her Star Spangled Kid days.

Ugh. Been so painfully busy the last week, week and half I've not had much time to read my books. Anyway, I DID read Batman last night and found it to be a fantastic, fantastic issue. The change of the art style about midway through was jarring but overall the story is good. Love the character of Harper and really, really, hope she gets the Robin role.

^This is the NEW JLA, the one without the Big 6. But I'm sure all 20 of us Stargirl fans picked it up. And both of Vibe's.

Edited to add: I will say this: it's somewhat heartening to see 5 books in the top 10 selling over 100,000. Just a few years ago there were months long stretches where not a single book in the top 10 hit 100,000. It's not the boom days of yesteryear, but it's something.
The other guy I understand, but why would Geoff Johns need to buy a title with Vibe in it?

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

I finally listened to the Fat Man on Batman Scott Snyder appearance and it was terrific. These are great because Kevin really gets into it with his guests and goes for backstory and what led them to becoming writers, etc. I guess he's picked up a few interviewing techniques from Jen over the years

I would really recommend both the Snyder and both Grant Morrison ones. I plan on listening to the Geoff Johns one at some point during the weekend.

I've listened to 2 of the 3 Geoff Johns ones so far and they barely touch on Batman but they're still very good. Fatman on Batman is by far my favorite Smodcast since it's entirely about Batman comics/tv/movies For the comic writers I'd rank the smodcasts as Morrison - Snyder - Johns - Higgins

This is an interesting development if true. Rich doesn't state a source for his statement regarding Diggle's supposed departure.

Diggle and Daniel obviously have issues in the can already so perhaps this will be announced as a mini-run or something like that before a new creative team is announced...of course if this even ends up being true.

Please tell me that Action isn't going to become as unstable as Superman has been, with the creative team changing every few months.

Remember, Rich was the one who reported that Diggle would replace Morrison in the first place. It's probably accurate since a lot of BC's stuff come from the Con/Pub scene across the Atlantic.

Likely Daniel pushing to get himself named the writer on Action. This is the third time that DC has bent over backwards to accommodate him.

I was thinking that...it does concern me a little bit as Mike Farley stated above. Rich's stuff usually does hit the mark. I wonder what's happened now. LOL

Tony Daniel is a vastly overrated artist... sounds like Action is going to seed quick!

He's a terrific artist, crap writer. They'll find someone to take the title if this is true. I think "Superman: Unchained" will become the marquee Superman family book now.

It was already the marquee Superman book once they announced Jim Lee.

I think Daniel's art on "Batman R.I.P" was extremely subpar. Yet another example of Morrison being paired with a bad artist. I much prefer when he's with a good artist like Andy Kubert in "Batman and Son".

His art on "Justice League" has been stellar...and surprised me big time. I actually much prefer his art over Jim Lee's on that book.
