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

She is undoubtedly the one thats rumored walking going over to Marvel then.

I hope they give her a Spidey book, Deadpool or Agent X.

At least it's not Lemire/Snyder/Cornell/Fialkov.

Rumours are that she has walked out on Firestorm.

I'm convinced Simone hates the reboot and is trying to sink her career at DC and her books with some kind of Alan Moore passive-aggressive act. Because there is no way a writer of Simone's caliber can churn out something as badly written as #2 unless it was deliberate. The same goes for the abomination that is Firestorm.
Interestingly, it would appear that Simone has walked away from Fury of Firestorm.
You know, I actually kind of didn't dislike Firestorm. Oh well.

The book was dead on arrival frankly just judging by the preview pages and the reviews for it.

I think DC should have used Clevinger of Atomic Robo fame instead of Simone and Van Sciver.

His pitch certainly was ambitious imo.

Oh, yeah. I liked that book.

I guess he was right.

Batgirl reads like typical Simone to me. Though with a little less sex and violence than say Secret Six or even Birds of Prey. I think the folks complaining might be projecting a little.

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

There could be some major New 52 announcements this weekend. The DC panels should be lively ones now compared to the SDCC panels now that most of the books will be in their second issues.

Batman and Robin was pretty good. An improvement over the first issue. I like the fact that Bruce is struggling to be a good father to Damian and sees his potential and is worried about the potential corruption of his goodness from Talia's indoctrination and conditioning, but it kind of has taken away a bit from the work Grayson did with him. I am loving Batwoman right now. Green Lantern is okay...probably will end up dropping it though. Mysasichev, I don't know what is happening to me...I'm not liking Geoff Johns! It's like I've stepped through some kind of funky portal and entered into a world where he is a bad writer!!! I can't explain it

It's like that Red Dwarf special that everybody hates. You know, the one where they come to the real world.

The more I think about Aquaman the more I dislike it. It's so desperate, almost fan-fictiony in how it addresses the meta-commentary. You know why Aquaman's not cool? His writer cares whether he's cool.

Sinestro Corps War was still the shit, tho.

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

Batgirl is very generic so far. I really don't like how Babs went from this empowering figure and this leader of a squad and the Justice League's information source to just another girl in a costume. Really feels like a huge step down for the character's importance. I'm only reading it to find out how she can walk again then I'll probably stop

I really like Green Lantern as always. Hal and Sinestro teaming up against the Sinestro Corps?! Awesome!

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

Except they aren't really teaming up. Sinestro is forcing Hal to work for him, not the same thing as teaming up. That would be cooler. I agree with you about Batgirl. If you've read Batman, Incorporated or Bruce Wayne: The Road Home there are clues as to how she can walk again. My guess is advanced Wayne nanotech of some kind.

I like how they are carrying on this "Hal isn't very bright" thing from JLA - he really thought that ring would work against Sinestro?

Yeah that was a sad part. I hate how dumb Hal is sometimes.


DC has sold a lot of the New 52...

I thought the #2 issue of GL was actually pretty good. It really served to show the differences in how Sinestro and Hal operates as GLs and as individuals.

I kind of liked GL #2. Although it pains me that Johns writes Sinestro so well, but can't write Hal for the life of him. His Hal varies between coming off as insanely dull or a caricature of a Han Solo type. Nowhere in there is there room for an actual 3-dimensional character. But it has good action, so it gets a pass, I suppose.
