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

Just read Action Comics #26 and really enjoyed it. Can't wait for the next issue. Aquaman #25 was a great issue too. Not only was the story good but the art and colouring were just amazing. I'll kinda miss the beard though. I thought it suited him, particularly the way Pelletier draws him.

Edited to add: I was just about to read Batman/Superman and noticed the art is sideways again. I'm not a fan. It's ok for the occasional double-page splash but a whole book is a bit annoying. For me anyways.

Pak is doing tremendous work right now.
His Eternal Warrior over at VALIANT is wrapping up it's first arc next week and that has been a solid start with Gilad's return to monthly status.

I just read Action Comics #26 and absolutely am in love with Pak's run right now...and Aaron Kruder's artwork is beautiful. Almost Quitely/Burnham like. Fits the book perfectly IMO. Also love New 52 Lana.

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.
He has done some wonderful work with Hulk and Hercules (with Van Lent) at Marvel.

Swamp Thing #26 - Jason Woodrue is now the Avatar of the Green and the first thing he does is pick a fight with the Red's Avatar...and loses. Alec narrates it and maybe I'm reading into it but it seems when Alec re-emphasis the fact that "old" Avatars, such as he is now, tap into the greater knowledge of all Avatars and the Green plus can see somewhat into the limited future of the current Green I'm thinking Alec will use that as a means to wrest control from Jason.

I'm enjoying this title more and more.

DC Officially Announces Five Years Later for May. Secondly weekly book called Future's End featuring Batman Beyond among the characters.

So two weeklies?

This is going to be difficult art-wise. 52 and Countdown suffered heavily from problems on the art side. I think Generation Lost/Brightest Day proved you could do it by dividing the project into two sides.

Yeah...it should be interesting to see how the second one does. I don't doubt that Batman Eternal will be okay. Pretty good creative team though on Future's End.

i like the fact that Nightwing is getting some spotlight due to Forever Evil...but it kinda irritates me that his own title has nothing to do with Forever Evil.

The batbooks are mostly divorced from this. Competing editorial regimes I believe.

I don't read Nightwing but that does seem a little odd.

Speaking of Bat Books...

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/12/...e-dark-knight/

Animal Man is cancelled, but will be moving to Lemaire's new Justice League book that he will be writing.

Maybe I'll go back and pick up the 8 issues I'd need to complete Animal Man then. I dropped it #21.
