I can imagine you (even though I have no idea what you look like) standing outside your home threatening cats with this tome and shouting obscenities.

Dont have a problem with his identity being exposed, its not like he has any family left to go after. Ex girlfriends maybe but they havent been revealed in the Nu52 yet.
Except that don't most people know that Nightwing is the ex-Robin? If his identity gets exposed then Batman's does as well.

No, not really. It's public knowledge that Bruce Wayne is funding Batman Inc. The relationship between Bruce and Dick is slightly different in the New 52; Dick was much older (already in his late teens) when Bruce came into his life and he became Robin, so there wouldn't be years and years of Dick Grayson as Bruce's ward to raise suspicions. Because of that (age and brief duration of time), it would be easy for Bruce to argue that, since he was already funding Batman, that he recommended to Batman that he take on Dick as an agent for Batman Inc. due to his personal history. Bruce isn't really compromised any more than he was if Dick is outed as Nightwing.

Heads up to anyone out and about today. Don't leave your comics in your car. There have been reports of the 3D covers melting in the heat!

I saw those covers and thought "Lenticular Cover", I mention this to the 20yr old at the counter and he goes "what's a lenticular cover?". Fifteen minutes later a 50yr old gentleman comes in and goes, "Hey, these aren't 3-D, it's the return of lenticular covers". The kid is now really confused!! LOL!!

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

Yeesh we've got continuity errors between books this week already. Forever Evil shows Scarecrow recruiting Riddler, Two-Face, Freeze, and Poison Ivy together into the Secret Society at Arkham. The Two-Face comic, though, shows Scarecrow recruiting Two-Face alone on top of GPD headquarters. There's also the problem of Mirror Master being in the physical world in Forever Evil, when he was trapped in the mirror world by the meta-machine.

But lenticular printing is still around on a number of things...my Superman DVDs use it, and I recently saw an HP Lovecraft book in the supermarket with one.

Read Forever Evil #1 and thought it was pretty good. The Finch art was great, love the Crime Syndicate and how they're being used in this story. Nightwing's identity being revealed was kind of a meh moment for me, but i guess it will be interesting to see how it will affect the story as we progress along. Loved the last two pages with Lex staring in awe and horror at Ultraman and wondering where Superman is.

Does Ultraman have an Ultracokenail?

Can you imagine him cutting his gear into lines and then snorting it up with a rolled up original draft of the bill of rights?

So New 52 Cyborg Superman is
and New 52 Bizarro is some poor kid spliced with Kryptonian DC? Oh dear.

We found that out in Supergirl last month after he "killed" her.

Ah well. That's why it's news to me. I don't read "Supergirl" any more.


Oh dear.

The headline is a little tad bit sensationalist if you read what Williams actually says.

This happened in Authority 10 years ago to Mark Millar.

A new editor walked in and said "Get one of those homos a girlfriend or you can fuck off."

Surely it should all depend on what US State Gotham is in, and what the State Laws are.

Thats complete BS. I've really enjoyed batwoman, so of course DC screws it up. Also, it sucks that DC wouldn't let them show Kate/Maggie marry. I mean, Marvel let Astonishing X-Men have a whole issue about Northstar marrying his fiance. I guess you could argue that Dc just plain hates marriage now (with how many they've broken up) but this seems like a stupid move made just to avoid pissing off the anti-gay marriage crowd, a group which Marvel apparently (and rightly) doesn't seem to care about (atleast from what I've seen). Well, if they're out at issue 26 I'll probably stop reading it too. If theDC doesn't cancel the book they'll probably just put a crappy writer who is completely under DC management's thumb on the book, and I have no desire to read that.
