    Is anyone reading Future's End? I thought the Superman reveal was pretty cool.

    Billy Batson/Shazam. Kal-El turns up at the end of the most recent issue looking like Henry Cavill after the oil rig rescue in MoS. Apparently he has been MIA for quite some time.

    I'm planning to skip Futures End as an event but get the Aquaman and Swamp Thing issues.

    I dropped it during it's first arc. I'm sure it's gotten better since then but I just couldn't get into it. I will be following the Anny books of the books I'm reading. We're officially in September so happy 3 year Anny 52'Verse!

    What is everyone still reading? I'll post my list in a bit. It's dwindled quite a bit.

    With Soule at Marvel would it be too much to hope for a Man-Thing ongoing??!!

    Noooooooooo! He's pretty much the best writer DC had. Well, I can't hope that Red Lanterns will continue to be anywhere near as good. There will be some very big shoes to fill.

    Yeah in an updated statement he said he's going to be allowed to finish his DC runs, so that's good. His work on "Superman/Wonder Woman" got me to actually like the Diana/Clark relationship. He will be missed there sorely.

    Apparently he'll still be on Swamp Thing and Red Lanterns through March at least. Still, it's going to suck. He managed in Red Lanterns to take a book that never rose above mediocre, and turned into one of the very best DC was publishing. I looked forward to a new Red Lanterns as much as I did Snyder's Batman.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    I'm watching old Grey's Anatomy.

    A woman is wheeled into the ER with a shattered baseball bat puncturing her Sternum called kathy Kane.

    Reading:

    Action Comics
    Batman
    Batman Eternal (weekly)
    Batman/Superman
    Earth 2
    Infinite Crisis (digital)
    Justice League
    Justice League Unlimited
    Smallville (digital)
    Superman
    Superman Unchained (when it ever comes out)
    Superman/Wonder Women
    Swamp Thing
    Teen Titans
    Worlds' Finest

    I imagine I'll drop Superman/Wonder Woman when Soule leaves.

    I wish Bryan Q. Miller would get a regular book (aside from the digital Smallville). He's one of DC's best kept secrets.

    Sounds interesting, I never followed the RL series, but maybe will pick up some trades the next time I am in the States.
