Was Resurrection Man good? I didn't read it. I know the "Dark" line has kind of been where it's at for me. Especially with Swamp Thing, Animal Man and Frankenstein. I'm also super excited for Justice League Dark. Kind of a stupid name, but I'm super interested in the characters and I trust Milligan with Constantine. Should be a good time.

Re: Was Resurrection Man good?
I thought it was. I liked how with this setup there is an implication that there is something special about Mitch's soul. That both sides are interested in obtaining it for some reason. My conclusion is perhaps other 'sides' could come into play. I think the book is ripe for a Zauriel appearance, a character I like, with the Heaven/Hell angle in play. Perhaps a Blue Devil appearnce as well, that would make the Shadowpact fan in my very happy. Hopefully some of the other board members will respond as well. I don't recall there being many comments on it when it came out two weeks ago for whatever reason.

I'm also going to get Justice League Dark. More out of curiosity. I did get the first 12 issues of Zatanna's last series so I have that as a draw also. Again, the Shadowpact fan in me wants to sample it cause JLD sounds like what they are giving us vs a Shadowpact #1.

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

Looking forward to this one a lot. I imagine DC will get their last little wave of free promotion from the mainstream press next week.

"Action News," with that logo? Love it.

"McCoy" comes across in one panel as an O'Reilly clone.

It's not clear that Supes is all that much better known or trusted now than when he was a kid leaping buildings with a single bound (cute line, that). That's kinda nice.

Looking at things from a contemporary perspective it's hard to imagine that a major news outlet, other than something like FOX News which has a specific political party line running through its coverage, would be a big cheerleader in Superman's corner or that of just about any of the other superheroes.

Thanks for the answer. Nice to know the BPRD homage was intentional and that I 'got it'. I never read Seven Soldiers or Freedom Fighters (the newer short lived series?).
Nope it was one of the minis after Infinite Crisis that had redeveloped the Freedom Fighers after a concept by Grant Morrison. The execution was pretty horrendous since the writers didn't have Morrison's writing ability.

Good grief, that's overwritten.

Didn't think the Perez Superman was going to work.

Should have switched Cornell to Superman.

I like the "token" Spanish woman. "Madre dios! Perry did you see that?!"

And her name is Ms. Izquierdo?!

Has George Perez written anything before this? I only ask because I'm familiar with hi art work and I agree they should have given "Superman" to Paul Cornell.

Is Savage Hawkman getting the "complete reboot" treatment? Or is it going to be a "halfsy"? I can't tell by the description if the initial issue is going to be an origin story or not.

Yeah, it wasn't really that highly regarded and is mostly forgotten about by now.

He wrote Wonder Woman back in the mid 80s. IIRC, it's one of the more highly regarded runs on the character.

The belt I can live with, the boots need a rethink. Not saying they need to go back to the classic boots, just saying that these look like ass.
