Editor Katie Kubert has left DC for Marvel. Really bad news seeing how she was doing such a great job with Batman Eternal. Guess we'll be seeing some of the artistic talent she recruited for Eternal popping up at Marvel now.

Yep. She'll be working with Mike Marts again on the X-titles I presume. The move continues to effect both companies.

I remember not liking those retroactive books from a few years ago.

Sigh. This sounds like every day at editorial!

It's less editorial's fault and more the management not knowing what they want. There is a recent interview by Devin Grayson, the former writer of Nightwing who had Dick raped which sheds some light on DC's problems.

Thanks, I googled it, and it's pretty horrifying.

Here's the link: http://thebatmanuniverse.net/comic/c...u-exclusive-3/

It really doesn't sound like a fun place to work at as a writer.

Definitely something that can be skipped.

Though I fear they'll probably stack up a body count if they get to use the heroes of the pre-FP DCU.

Just look at what happened last time the main DC heros were shunted off in to being in another universe.

Golden Age Batman: Dead
Golden Age Robin: Dead
Golden Age Superman: Dead
Golden Age everyone else except the ones ported to New Earth: Dead

Honestly not looking good.

To be fair, the Golden Age Batman died almost a decade before COIE. the GA Superman survived and the JSA wound up fighting an endless Ragnarok.

Has anyone been reading Justice League United? So far I am not all that impressed. I may be dropping it after the conclusion of the current story.

That's the one. It's pretty "meh" so far.

I expected more given the fact Jeff Lemaire was writing it...but yeah it's lost my interest already.


I'm not excited about the Band-Aid project at all. Probably will be avoiding it. They most likely would have been better off just closing shop like originally planned for the two months and focusing on their move.

Those who still go to the comic shop, I imagine, are very much habit shoppers. If there were no new DC books on the shelves for two months, then they'd theoretically be less likely to buy DC when the books come back.

It's the reasoning behind "Fifth Week Events."
