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

It was an alright ending. I now have to re-read the whole series because I don't remember what Spyral is though lol

I never found the art to be very good in this series. It's too bad they couldn't have gotten a prominent artist to pair with Morrison. Is Andy Kubert doing anything lately?

You know the idea that Arthurs people may not be the true native Atlantians hadn't occurred to me. My thought was a coup had happened but by native Atlantians.
This possibility then that Mera's people might be the true Atlantians is interesting...so then who, by what name, might the usurpers have gone by before taking the name Atlantians for themselves. This may just get even more interesting over in Aquaman than it already has.
We have met other groups/clans/cities in the ocean that don't claim heritage to Atlantis so a precedent is there.

Quick question on Batman. I'm finally catching up on my reading and am getting close to the Death of the Family story line. Can I just read Batman or do I need to pick up all the crossover titles too?

Thanks!

Like "Night of the Owls", all of the primary story takes place in "Batman", but that story splits off into the satellite titles showing what the other characters were doing. So you can totally skip it. But the tie-ins were decent.

Thanks. I am actually right in the middle of Night of the Owls.

The "Death of the Family" tie-ins were a lot more important to the characters, whereas "Night of the Owls" tie-ins were just 'random assassin attacks random target' stories.

You can easily skip the crossover issues for Teen Titans, Red Hood and the Outlaws, and Catwoman on account of them all being freaking terrible, though. Also, Nightwing's might confuse you if you haven't been reading the book, since it relies heavily on stuff that had been happening in that book before the crossover.

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

I've been just reading "Batman" and yeah as the others have said you don't need to get any of the other tie-in titles. Most...if not at all the main stuff happens in Bruce's book anyway.

So it's that time again. With Batman Incorporated officially ending this past week...I thought I'd update my pulls for the 52'Verse. Currently they're the following:

-Action Comics
-Aquaman
-Batman
-He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
-Smallville Season 11 (digital)
-Superman/Batman
-Superman
-Superman Unchained
-Wonder Woman

My DC Pull list is actually increasing.

Yeah I don't read the Bat supporting titles, so I was a little confused about what was going on in Batgirl and Nightwing but they were clearly important to those titles. The Batman & Robin was superfluous but good with amazing Patrick Gleason art.

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

My list:
Superman/Batman (probably one if not the best book and blows SU out of the water)
Superman Unchained
Green Arrow
Swamp Thing
Animal Man (both AM and ST are back to their old stride pre-RW since Snyder's departure)
Green Lantern
Green Lantern Corps
New Guardians
Red Lanterns (the Green Lantern titles even Red Lanterns have all gotten better since the creative reboot )
Justice League
Justice League of America
Wonder Woman
Aquaman

I just read Grant Morrison's Grand Finale for Batman Incorporated and absolutely love it. I know there are those on the board who aren't a fan of some of the things that he did with the character and the mythos...but this has become my all time favourite runs. Chris Burnham too...what a find as well. This was one of his best issues on art as well. The mysterious figure we talked about last month was indeed a Kane...and House of UIster was correct in identifying which one. The ending was simply marvelous.

Morrison mentioned that he thought "fans would hate it". I'm not particularly sure what he was meaning when he said that. He even included a mention of Zero Year...so now we pretty much can confirm this takes place in the New 52. That actually surprised me when I read that line.
I thought it was a better ending honestly than the one in the movies.

Currently I'm reading:

Action Comics
Aquaman
Batman
Batman/Superman
Flash
Green Lantern
Green Lantern Corps
Green Lantern: New Guardians
Justice League
Justice League of America
Superboy
Supergirl
Superman
Superman Unchained

I am seriously considering dropping all the Green Lantern titles but I want to see where the current story line is going first.

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

For DC, I just started reading Flash again (I stopped after issue 2, but just started again from issue 18). Its actually decent. I mean, the love interest is beyond boring and useless, but the actual story is entertaining. Its nice to see that Hal and aquaman aren't the only JL members who have a decent ongoing. It makes me wish some good writers could get their hands on Wonder Woman, Superman and batman (and the main JL book too, but I think Johns would probably make another writer fight him in a kirk/spock style fight to the death to get the right to work on the book away from him)

The reason Johns has these books is that he sells. No one at DC and Marvel can match what he does.

Well, since according to comicbookresources Marvel outsoild DC in june (the latest avaliable sales numbers are from June) apparently people can outdo Johns. Also, sales do not mean quality. Rob Liefeld sold a lot of comics in the 90's, until people started to realise he was an idiot. Although, to be honest, I can't find many people singing Johns praises at this point anyway (especially about JL). I don't hate the guy, his JSA, Justice Society and Green Lantern runs were awesome, he just sucks with the stuff he's writing now.

I think Wonder Woman is one of the best titles in the New 52 right now.
