I liked Demon Knights but bailed when they started canceling other "Dark" books on me. Frankly surprised it lasted that much longer. I figured it to get the axe in the prior round. I may get the last two TPBs now.

Dial H was just a bizarre title and would have been an excellent Vertigo book.
It was basically a Vertigo. I think it even had Karen Berger editing. Of course Time Warner has pretty much killed Vertigo.

I picked up one issue of Dial-H because it tied in with an issue of The Flash and it was definitely very weird.

Agreed, a really great last issue of Sword of Sorcery.

Of course if the title wasn't ending it would've been nice to explore the new family dynamic. How do you proceed with an Aunt that was trying to kill you but only circumstances prevented her from acquiring the Amethyst power in totality. I kinda see it as a type of parallel with Arthur and Orm in Aquaman on some level from a narrative perpective.

The shakeups and new Lords and Ladys in the other various houses due to this last arc. What other ties to Earth might there be, Eclipso was an interesting retcon I thought.

This title met it's end to early imo.

Wonder Woman #20 was fantastic as usual. This issue probably was the best in a while since had some plot progression. The art is fantastic. Still my favourite book in the New 52 and I love Diana's supporting cast.


James Robinson will be leaving DC and Earth 2 #16 will be his final issue.

Earth 2 is off the rails into snoozeville.

The first 6 issues were great, but there's no bite anymore.

Earth 2 is one of my favorite books. the pacing is weird at times, but i love all the JSA characters. wonder who will take over and if they will go forward with spin off books from that universe.

I find Worlds finest to be a much better fit for me.

These two titles are a choice pair.

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

I'm wondering if Keith Griffen will take it over. He took over on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe when Robinson had to leave that book, and there was almost no change or drop off IMO. Not sure how many titles Griffen is juggling right now though.

Newsarama's turn to speculate on the so-called Villain's Month in September. I expect that this will probably be officially announced at SDCC or just before.

I'm going to blow your mind.

"Giffen" not "Griffen".
