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

I hate that. I have been really behind on my reading so when I caught up on Justice League I discovered I had to go back and buy some issues of Aquaman to read the Throne of Atlantis storyline. On the other had I also discovered that I like Aquaman and have been buying up the back issues. I still haven't found a first print of issue one.

I gave up on Aquaman because I want to be selective about what I read, but I found it to be one of the best written titles if not the best. The Throne of Atlantis arc looked good, but I stopped before that because I didn't want to get sucked in and have to commit to several more months and issues. And yeah, it crossed over to other titles. That I don't like.

The Throne of Atlantis only crossed over to Justice League and was really good in both books. They actually complimented each other and probably was Johns strongest arc on Justice League.

I was looking a couple weeks ago, and I saw that the Batman: Night of the Owls has all of the crossover issues. How hard would it be to follow the non-Batman issues without the earlier issue of those series? Would I be better off just buying the Batman solo parts of the arc?

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

The main bits take place in "Batman" (I just ordered the second volume which came out a couple weeks ago) and the other Bat-Family parts are collected in "Batman: The Night of Owls" (which is also available in trade) which is the main month long arc. You have no trouble following what's going on if you just get "Batman" though which is what I ended up doing after dropping a couple of the other books around that time.

Well Batman went off the deep end this week. Though I'm sure Jason is crying now that he knows Bruce never cared that much about him.

DC marked the first year anniversary of the New 52 relaunch last September with "Zero Month" so now this year they're mark the second anniversary with "Villains Month".

I read it yesterday. Pretty interesting. Makes me wonder how a certain individual who wears blue would react to the news.

I haven't been reading Teen Titans or The Ravagers so I'm not sure how much of the plot I'm missing with Harvest but they seemed to fill in a lot of details.

I miss the old days when Superboy was a human clone (of Cadmus director Paul Westlake) who was given powers that mimicked Superman's.

Batman and Robin #19 was very good...I'm looking forward to seeing more of New 52 Carrie Kelly, and the reveal that Damian was taking dancing lessons with her (I assume) was very amusing.
