    Well Batman went off the deep end this week. Though I'm sure Jason is crying now that he knows Bruce never cared that much about him.

    Bruce wasn't the only one. ;)

    I read it yesterday. Pretty interesting. Makes me wonder how a certain individual who wears blue would react to the news.

    I haven't been reading Teen Titans or The Ravagers so I'm not sure how much of the plot I'm missing with Harvest but they seemed to fill in a lot of details.

    Regarding Superboy, why then is Harvest...
    still refering to him as a clone? Harvest made him with genes from Supes and Lois both. He's a test tube baby, not a clone.

    ... used a third DNA string which came from Lois and and Superman's son. But I see your point. He's not so much a clone and is more of a genetically engineered hybrid.

    I miss the old days when Superboy was a human clone (of Cadmus director Paul Westlake) who was given powers that mimicked Superman's.

    Batman and Robin #19 was very good...I'm looking forward to seeing more of New 52 Carrie Kelly, and the reveal that Damian was taking dancing lessons with her (I assume) was very amusing.

    i miss the old days when Superboy was just a young version of Superman who had various adventures...usually with the Legion.

    So like all the way back to the late 40's or so? ;)

    Late 30s and early 40s actually.

    You mean back when he had that speaking tick where he had to say "tactile telekinesis" every other sentence?

    That damn tick was worse than Cannonball's "invulnerable when I'm blastin" problem.

    Like some weird form of tourettes syndrome.

    That's still in continuity post new 52. Clark did have adventures with the Legion when he was a boy, and in the present interacts with their adult selves as well.

    I think it's called Claremont's Syndrome.

    Finished reading Batman #19 and thought it was really good. Capullo's artwork as well was spectacular as usual. I think this is the "Batman Animated Series" two parter homage that Snyder teased at Wonder Con. The Batman/Superman back up story from Tynion IV and Alex Maleev was awesome as well.

    I so get this. I've liked Aquaman but dropped it right as the Throne of Atlantis arc started because I didn't want to get completely hooked. I also didn't like the crossover with the more expensive Justice League books either.

    That being said, I've enjoyed the run on Aquaman thus far and would like to read the trades on down the line.
