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.
I dunno. He's already CCO of DC which might be the perfect place for him. Being Co-publisher might cause him to lose sight of the smaller things like DiDio has. As far as his story ideas go, I really don't think Johns gets told "no" too often. I mean, if he can get away with writing epilogues for every major character in one of DC's key books, he can probably get away with anything.

I know some people decry his Lantern run for bringing it away from the origins of the character, but I for one love it. He breathed new life into a character that had gotten stale. His Flash run is equally great, cutting right to the heart of the what makes the character engaging. I'm really enjoying Forever Evil, and am looking forward to the future of Justice League.

I'm assuming that yes Finch will both draw and write the book as he did with "Batman: The Dark Knight". I suppose there's a chance that can change, but if he writes it as well, I've no interest whatsoever.

DC appears to be unhappy with the two separate takes on the character. Azzy's self-contained story, and then what Johns and others have been doing. They want her to be conformed all through their books.

this is terrible news. i feel like Finch's art has really declined in quality the past few years. compare his Moon Knight and Avengers work with his current Forever Evil stuff.

as a WW fan i would like to see more traditional elements. like the inclusion of Steve Trevor, Cheeta, and Circe. but i have really enjoyed Azzarello's run.

After LoDK I don't think they would give him another writing job.

This could be Rich getting only part of the story. I didn't think he'd get another book either, let alone one of the trinity, but I guess we'll see in the coming months.

Finch's DC art does seem very rushed and half-assed when compared to his older Marvel work. Forever Evil often looks quite ugly and malformed.

It's not "rushed". He seems to be doing more shortcuts using Poser and Photoshop.

Damn, damn, damn. I've been loving Azzarello's WW and will be very sad to see it end. Luckily I'm still behind so I'm going to have quite a while before I get to the end. Do we know yet if he's getting a chance to tie up his story?

Yeah, I don't think they're being forced off the book or anything. Their story in just coming to an end.

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

I read Batman and Robin #28 and wow this issue has been under the radar given the potential "game-changer" feel of it. I really enjoyed this entire arc as Tomasai has been doing really great work and the art has been awesome as well. This should have ramifications I'm assuming will be dealt with (if it's not ignored) in Batman: Eternal and "Batman" later on. I also assume this arc takes place sometime after Forever Evil.

Also read "Wonder Woman #28" and loved this issue. I absolutely adore Cliff Chang's art, and this story just got huge thanks to the ending of this issue!

Well if WW was a Marvel book then WW would get relaunched with an all new #1. Cause apparently a change of creative team is enough of a justifiable reason to do so.

Glad that won't be happening.

Sad. I've loved Azzarello's work. The only WW book I have ever read more than two issues of. I also think it was one of the more successes of the new52. It took chances and told something that wasn't the same old same old.

Glad to hear it. Any idea how many more collections there should be? I'm probably going to read Vol. 3 some time in the next couple weeks.
