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

I remember seeing a sketch comedy show that parodied the Bradey Bunch quite some time ago... "Mom, we're a bunch of healthy, fun loving teenagers who are not related to one another by blood forced to live under the same roof, if we weren't having orgies there would be something wrong with us."

What is the 30th century equivalent of a key party?

So I stopped reading Green Arrow after the second issue but my sub was paid up through issue 11 so I've had them sitting in a box for a while. I finally decided to give them a go and I do not regret my decision to drop it at all. It must be one of the lamest comics I've read in quite some time.

The Nocenti issues were probably the worst. It has improved remarkably since Lemire became the writer.

Action Comics was kind of meh. It did feature the conclusion of the World of Krypton back up story which introduced Zod and set up his villains month issue next month. I really enjoyed the World of Krypton stories.

I wasn't impressed by the uneven art in this month's Action Comics. Some of the expressions on Superman's face were way too cartoonish.

Yeah...I noticed Rocafort wasn't on art this month, Tyler somthing or other was on guest art duties (at least I hope it was guest art duties) wasn't fond of the style at all. The Pax Galactica actually seemed interesting. Obviously a riff on "Battlestar Galactica" and I'm guessing the Shi'Ar Imperial Guard?

So a riff on a riff, since the Imperial Guard is a riff on the Legion of Super-Heroes?

"Pax Romana" was quite big at one time.

It looks like we will be seeing John Jr on "Superman" in the near future...

DC must have saw the recent numbers if they are crossing all these non-Bat books with Year Zero.

After being burned on Death of the Family and Wrath of the First Lantern I am going to wait until it seems like there is actually content relative to the story before buying tie-ins. H'el on Earth was a pretty legitimate crossover, as was the Rotworld story in Swamp Thing/Animal Man, but many others in the new 52 have not.

I won't be buying any of the tie-ins. I got along just fine with Night of the Owls and Death of the Family without them.

I remember when "Zero Year" was contained in one title, as though it were yesterday. Because it basically was yesterday. Dick Grayson as vigilante before being Robin. Stop grasping those straws. I only have a few straws left.

Also: nobody is reading Demon Knights anymore, but for those reading Wonder Woman and wondering if Hephaestus lied to Diana about what Amazons do after "mating"? Exoristos essentially confirms it in a late issue in Venditti's run.

I'll buy the tie ins that take place in the titles I buy.
