The Movement has been cancelled. There goes one of the last good DC books.
Yeah, bummed about that, too. Was the last New52-book I was reading. This leaves me "Adventures of Superman" as the last monthly comic title from DC on my pull list.

What were the letter designations for Earth 2 with the Justice Society, or Earth 3 with the Crime Syndicate?
Those two didn't have letter designations. There's neither rhyme nor reason to how the infinite Earths were labeled pre-Crisis.

And I think Earth-B is where Bob Haney's work all took place, especially his Brave and the Bold work. So, "Batman digs this day!" happens on Earth-B.

Greg Pak "Superman: Doomed" interview. He clarifies a few things. This won't be "Death of Superman" rehashed, they've a plan, and I'm guessing this is all set up for Johns and John Jr's "Superman" when they take over the title.

The mask looks silly. So does Guy's facial hair.

Red Lanterns is probably the best Green Lantern book right now.

I can't imagine ever saying this, but really how Soule worked Guy into the RLC and the lanterns as part of his supporting cast was very well done.

Seriously? I dropped Red Lanterns pretty damn quick and haven't touched it since. Of course, I'm not very into any of the GL books since Johns left. I'm reading out of inertia.

That's the problem with dropping a book because it sucks 6 months before a creative overhaul that makes it fantastic.

I just find the very concept of the Red Lanterns to be uninteresting, much as I like Guy Gardner. And those early issues starring Atrocious and the girl with the eff-me boots were just terrible.

It's got a new creative team and they really shifted the focus of the book to Guy and how he remakes them into his own Lantern Corps. The team dynamic and how he develops the individual reds makes it better imo than GLC. Atrocitius is definitely the villain trying to regain control of them.

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

I got around to reading Justice League #28, and as I expected, I absolutely loved Johns take on the Metal Men. Before the "Supermen" news broke, I would have expected that perhaps Johns would have plans for a Metal Men solo series or mini-series (which I think would work under his direction). Just a fantastic issue that made me care about these characters for the first time in a long time. The art continues to be sensational in this book as well. I also really love the tweaked Cyborg design for Vic.

I wish Johns could just take over Didio's position. Johns has vision and creativity and passion for the characters of DC that is lacking elsewhere. I don't know what his actual personality is like but I think he could really be that guy that controls the big sweeping arcs of the comic line, taking it in new and interesting directions.

^Maybe in a few years...right now he has the perfect position creatively for him, besides which Didio still has Diane Nelson's backing. Until that stops happening for some reason, Didio will still be Co-Publisher.

I know some will be glad that Azzarello's run will be ending, but this isn't good news for me at all. Finch is a horrible writer.
