Harper's not a 'faux-Robin' as we saw in the preview in 28...she's just a new partner.
Yeah, odd wording on my part. She's his effective partner is what I was getting at, which is great. Loved her as a character.

But did I hear right that Damien is coming back?!

And how long was the Riddler in charge for Gotham to go completely overgrown abd desolate? Some odd things, but, again really enjoying it.

Yeah Damian is coming back in an arc starting in July, but will be making his actual return in December which bookends the arc.

Nygma's grasp over Gotham appears to be over a number of months so far. I believe that Zero Year is supposed to take place over a literal year in the 52'Verse timeline. LOL

It still seems like pretty excessive overgrowth for a few months. Unless it was just supposed to have already been a long abandoned area of Gotham.

Maybe Poison Ivy helped.

Actually didn't they establish that he stole something from pre-Poison Ivy to make the vegetation grow crazy?

Yeah, that was mentioned in one of the issues.

Perhaps some hope that we won't get the Finches on "Wonder Woman? Solue is writing the September one shot

Depends really on how reliable Rich is. But there is no way Finch could do a monthly not after how he delayed Forever Evil for two months.

I actually just read the first three chapters. It's not bad. It's not great either, but it's better than the recent Superman comics. The only non-Morrison Superman comics I've liked in the relaunch was the Hell on Earth crossover. I'm really looking forward to Geoff Johns and JRJR coming on though!!!

That's funny. I couldn't stand Morrison's run on Action Comics.

I've really looking forward to Superman #32 too!

It was no All Star Superman but it was damned well better than any of other New 52 Superman stories.

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

Superman: Doomed...was okay. I'm sticking with Pak's Action Comics right now along with Superman/Wonder Woman and thought it was okay. How they've introduced and treated Doomsday so far is a little confusing, despite the fact they clarified that Death of Superman still happened. I loved they went back to Morrison's run.

When did Sam Lane become Senator Lane? Did that happen in "Superman" or something. I'm guessing parts of this explain why Clark isn't on the Justice League during Luthor's tenure.

I'm really looking forward to Johns/John Jr's run on "Superman". That book can't get here fast enough for me.

Wait, I thought they confirmed that the Death of Superman DIDN'T happen? Now I'm even more confused...
