Geoff Johns discusses the Crime Syndicate and Forever Evil, along with Lex's role in the event thus far. He also briefly teases whatever is happening in April. I guess this teased Blight story.

So there is this:

http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=50317

which means that Stormwatch, Animal Man and the Titans from the original wave of titles will be cancelled. How many of the original group are left? 20?

I shed no tears for Scott Lobdell's Teen Titans. Hopefully someone with some actual talent can relaunch the book, now.

I agree. I read the first three or four issues before dropping it along with Hawkman. My issue is with the practice of just cancelling the series...why not rework the title with a new creative team? Aquaman was successful because of Johns not because the character is inherently appealing, for example.

Teen Titans, Hawkman, Legion, and others could probably have been saved if DC had wanted to do so--it takes as much effort to promote a redirection as it does a relaunch.

Well it would require them taking a risk and giving them to newer talent instead of using the old tired out writers such as Levitz or Lobdell.

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

Two issues in and "Justice League 3000" has been underwhelming so far. I'm on the verge of dropping it. The Porter art is good, and the concept is kind of interesting, but I dunno. Something is missing with this book. I wanted to like this, but I'm not. I don't see how this is supposed to be a "better option" than the Legion of Superheroes either. This seems like a completely revamped 31st Century as well, which kind of was expected, but things are still vague and Cadmus focused. The most interesting characters in this book are these new "Wonder Twins".

The new directions for Justice League and Justice League Canada sound exciting.

Random guess - 'The Five' are going to versions of the LSH.

It's easier to promote a new direction when you have a new #1, though. "Trust us, issue #44 might've been shit, but #45 is amazing!" is not an easy sell, I suspect. Andrew Wheeler at Comics Alliance did a pretty compelling article about the needs for #1s a few months ago: http://comicsalliance.com/marvel-dc-...el-now-new-52/

What's to stop them from every issue being #1?

We're close know. It seems that every major story arc gets a new number one. Justice League United, for example.

But it isn't number 1 issues that keep people coming back, and word of mouth spreads quickly. If #45 is good and the next few issues are as well then your audience is back for #50.

Word of mouth is overrated.

More people will buy #1s.

Creative team changes are things that only comic book nerds (people like us) care about.
