I liked the take on her character that I saw while reading H'El on Earth. She is aggressive but there is reason behind it.

I gave up on New 52 Supergirl after the opening arc.

It was good artwise and decent storywise. I think the loss of the previous artist and the editorial backseat writing really hurt the current run.

I have no interest in New 52 Supergirl. I liked the late 2000s version.

I do like Kara's 52'Verse costume, but I do miss the pre-relaunch version.

"Damian: Son of Batman" has been incredibly disappointing thus far. Mostly because of Kubert's writing. I'm seriously contemplating dropping this even at the midway point.

Aquaman #25 - Johns wrapped up things on the title in stellar fashion I thought. I don't fully believe the Dead King is 'dead' and gone for good. I do feel that Johns has left ideas to picked up as the title teases another entanglement with the Justice League with the coming of the War of the Seven Seas. It looks if nothing else they have structured it so that Parkers new creative team hits the ground running with what seems a fluid transition out of Johns run. Hoping so as the title as been consistently one of the best since the nu52 launch.

Justice League Dark #25 - I've been considering dropping this but saw Swamp Thing was involved and got it. I must confess I'm not sure who this Nightmare Nurse is. Constantine alludes she's gone by different names, is she a reworked character I might know or totally knew altogether and John's line could be fodder for flashbacks at some point? I was also intrigued by the one page, 5 panel showing during one of the spell castings of an apparent Aquaman doppleganger rising out of the ocean. Could this be the 'Dead King' reborn. Fresh on my mind since I read these back-to-back. Also, since when are Question, Phantom Stranger and Pandora "better known" as the "Trinity of Sin". Are those recent developments? I'm not fully following the Villains Month saga. It seems the unknown Aquaman-esque entitiy will be in play next month as issue #26 is called "The Haunted Sea".

When the genetically identical Supergirl met Powergirl from Earth II and Supergirl's magic robot house went insane because clones are illegal on krypton and tried to kill "the clone"... That was a high point.

Been shit before, and been shit after.

Aquaman #25 was excellent, a stellar grand finale from Geoff Johns. This book has been an example of Johns at his very best, when he's passionate about characters and focused on something. The epilogue with Orm was most interesting...I'm still willing to give Parker's run a chance, but Johns will be missed on this book.

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

I'm getting a feeling the new Earth 2 Batman might be a former Robin, especially after the scene with the Joker in the latest issue. Jason seems likely, but Dick would be a sort of nod the Earth 2 Robin from the Silver Age.

He's never really caught my attentions before, but Greg Pak might be THE Post Flashpoint Superman scribe. Lots of fun with both Batman/Superman and Action Comics this week.
