    This actually sounds really interesting. Will be checking it out. Also I guess this also kind of spoils part of the end of Forever Evil as well heh ;)

    Given some of the Batjerk portrayals since Identity Crisis, who would notice the difference?

    Did anyone read that Lois Lane one-shot? It was fucking awful.

    Simple case of Bat-nepotism. She also wrote the terrible one shots with Lobo and Joker's Daughter. I had a legitimate fear that they were going to hand her the keys to Nightwing/Grayson simply because she was one of Snyder's proteges.

    Looking forward to the post-Nightwing book. I suppose "Grayson" is a better title than "Dick"...

    Batman #30. Awesome Sauce. Is this the New 52 version of No Man's Land?

    Batman Robin #30. Good stuff.

    Batman Eternal #2. Okay, now I'm thinking the Big Bad is the Court of Owls and Bruce's missing brother and not Doctor Hurt. I think the returning bad guy is going to be with the Owls, based on the way he was talking.

    Justice League #29. gasp! a very slight advancement of the plot!

    No it was Falcone. The guy from Year One and Long Halloween.

    Also Red Hood was actually readable for once. Pfeifer won't be too bad on NTT

    What I said was, the returning bad guy (I was vague for spoilers) is probably with the Owls. :)

    ^^^
    Which is the biggest reason I trade wait material like this. It's actually even better after discounts at online outlets in a price per issue comparison vs even an LCS file discount I've found.
    It'll be turned around fairly quickly and I'm not giving up the quality books at VALIANT, DH etc just cause DC/Marvel can afford to flood the market.

    Three weekly books, and none of them is Wednesday Comics, vol. 2. :(

    This is DC's C or D-List .

    Paul Levitz who hasn't written anything good since stepping down as President of DC.

    Marguerite Bennet who wrote the terrible Lois Lane, Lobo and Joker's Daughter one shots

    And Johnson who has wrote everything from Supergirl to Transfomers without one memorable story to his name.

    Surprised Nocienti, Lobdell or Christy Marx isn't amongst them. But I guess Harras's star is on the wane.

    I'm not sure I've read an issue of the main Earth-2 series since Robinson left. I was disappointed by his departure.

    BTW, I went back and looked up the map of Gotham City in No Man's Land 1999 to see if it matched the map in Batman #30. It did! There were a few cosmetic changes but it was the same! Kudos!

    I'm guessing that Zero Year is replacing No Man's Land in the New 52 Continuity?

    Which in turn raises the question, was Lex Luthor ever President now?
