    Well, I am very glad that I am reading none of those books.

    I have been picking up Pandora thinking it was just a mini-series that tied into the Trinity War. I didn't realize it was an ongoing series. I will be dropping it now and I do't collect any of the other books so I guess I'm in the clear.

    I read Justice League Dark....this might be a good dropping off point though.
    Still, I'd probably be able to follow along since a good part of the story is in JLD.
    However, since it spins out of Villains, which I'm not following, I may be lost from the start. TBD.

    Guess this means JLD will be one of the few "Dark Line" books from the nu52 to hit a #30 and beyond.

    Funny thing is, since I picked up a few issues of JLD during Trinity War, I was considering continuing with it afterwards. Not now.

    I doubt Warner would give it up.

    Interesting design. I really don't know if I'll be following this one. I'm guessing we'll be getting more details next weekend.

    I've never been that interested in the magic aspect of the DCU so I'll just skip this.

    It's the Vertigoiness I don't like.

    They just need how to remember to do Doctor Fate right... Has it been done right?

    I like the new Phantom Stranger because it is actually a real REBOOT of the character. I wish DC had taken this approach with more of its books--give us a completely different take on the universe.

    Depends on which version you like.

    He seems to be an Earth 2 character right now, so he's out anyway.

    And Earth 2 is the other real REBOOT of the new 52.

    True. Not sure what that changes about Dr. Fate though.

    Green Lantern is looking for a new Boyfriend.

    One writer might hook him up with Fate, another might not.

    Changing writers changes everything.

    Nah, this is DC. Writers are just typing monkeys. Editors have the power.

    Have they done anything with Alan's homosexuality since his boyfriend died in the first issue?

    (Which comic-time, might have only been a couple hours ago... I haven't read the last couple issues.)
