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

Keep in mind as well that the Finch story is not confirmed by anyone and that just Rich's sources gave him the info.


@JD there will most likely be five collections. Four is coming out pretty soon, and then the last arc should be volume five (off the top of my head).

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

World's Finest is not an awful comic book, some of the stories have been quite interesting, and... None of the art really stood out, and I suspect that there have been a few artists deployed there to make the comic look more like a bus station than a place of business... So, World's Finest is not an awful comic book until it does a crossover with any book drawn by Jae Lee, and suddenly the writers credentials and credibility in either title don't amount to a hill of beans.

The swift shift in artesian pressure was grating and dangerous.

I liked World's Finest when George Perez was doing the art, once he left so did I.

The Perez/Maguire art team on that book made it one of my favourite reads each month. Now they're gone, I do still enjoy the storylines, but the book's a lot harder to read.

New writer for Wonder Woman.

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/02/...-wonder-woman/

I'm guessing this is more shenanigans from Harras and Idelson. It was a nice 34 something issues.

Maybe Finch's wife will be a better writer than Finch?

Future's End 3D covers.

DC is also doing a third weekly book starting in Oct.

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

I would prefer Soule or Snyder writing it.

Because I have a good feeling they are going to demolish the previous mythology and build something of their own much like what every Wonder Woman writer has done to a degree since Perez.

FYI Idelson was responsible for the terrible Amazons Attack and editorially mandating the previous Gail Simone run of WW to death.

I hope they don't ignore it all. I think making WW a sort of supernatural almost vertigo story has been more interesting than the same old same old superhero story.

You'll be lucky if they just ignore it and not put Zola, Hermes and Hera on the deathbus to Hades because if you have read how Amazons Attacks or World of New Krypton ended, wiping the slate is basically how this editorial regime works.

I think I could pitch a sitcom about a deathbus.

2 parts the John Larroquette show and 3 parts those Bureaucracy scenes in Hell from Beetleguice and 1 part Dead Like Me for good measure.

What's nice is: I can walk away with something complete. I just think this vision of WW is great.

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

Well Rich's original article seemed to imply that they want to bring Diana's characterization into the rest of the books, I don't know that that also means undoing all of Azzy's mythology to do that. I guess we'll see. I'm really sad about this. Aside from Snyder's "Batman", Azzy's "Wonder Woman" quickly became my favourite book.


Soule would have my pick as well to take over. His work on Superman/Wonder Woman has been good. I have become a huge fan of his "Letter 44" for Oni Press as well.

I thought it was the other way around, that they wanted to bring WW's characterization from the other books INTO her own book. Making her book more like the rest of the DCU.

Why duplicate those books?

The other Wonder Woman book, and Wonder Woman spotlights deal with continuity, so that this title is where an author can go balls deep with cart blanch with big ideas and ignore the shit out of the rest of the rest of the New 52.
