I'm a big fan of Vixen, Ice and Booster (and, to a lesser extent, Fire and the entire Global Guardians group, of which Godiva is darn close to the last person I would have picked), and kinda want both better writing and better art for them. There's a lot of focus on Batman and Guy, neither of whom I'm a huge fan of...

Seeing the guy (Andre Briggs?) on the first page of issue 1, mentioning the Authority in his very first sentence, I was kinda thinking he might be Jackson King, and the woman next to him Christine Trelane. Both worked for the UN, both worked with the Authority, and other UN-sanctioned superhero groups, and the relaunch DCU has melded with the Wildstorm universe, so it just 'fit' in my head. Them being some random new characters, occupying the same role, just left me a bit off-balance for the rest of the book, I suspect.

Eh, it's my own fault for seeing a connection where none was. I need to read faster, so that I don't have time to think ahead and get myself worked up for stuff I'm making up in my head. :)


Different strokes, i guess. I wuvs me some godiva.


I loved JLI the first time round..yes I was that reader.

Booster and Bats are even more extremly apart than Supes and Bats

Fav line in No 1 was

Bosster:Do the UN know you're here

Batman:You know Booster one thing I always liked about you was your sense of humor.

Guy's one about not working with a spokesman for Adult Diapers came a close second

Just showing how out of touch I am with the modern comics news...

The Authority is part of DCU now? As in Midnighter, Apollo, Jenny Sparks and stuff? That... that invalidates the *entire* concept of... of...

Yes, again I preferred Stormwatch before Spartan joined up, liked it even less when Benedix went 'crazy'.

But the only gripe I might have about JLI was the last min swap out of Donna Troy in favor of Godiva. Seriously check out the old splash page.

July release

now:
Sept release

Unless of course, they made Donna Troy the Lady in Red? She was supposed to be the new Harbringer/Monitor type for the DCU.

I'm pretty sure that the original cover was made before the decision to can Donna was fully formed on the new DCU direction. Judging by a lot of the first issues, and knowing the actual pre-prod lifecycle of how a comic gets made, it's a safe bet that it was fully intended that Donna would be in the JSI before word came down of "No Donna." I say this because the overall feel of many of the first issues is more "We're adding new lines, and tying them in to all existing continuity" than it is "We're relaunching the entire DCU and only keeping Bat/GL continuity."

Case in point, any book that references non-Bat/GL continuity (Roy in Red Hood talking to Goldfi... Er, Starfire... Also, Legion Of Superheroes and Legion Lost). Second case in point, look at how rushed and "off tone" titles like Grifter and Voodoo feel.

As to Stormwatch... I'm just waiting for J'onn's moral center to reappear. It has to. Right? I mean, that can't really be the Martian Manhunter... Can it?

Qadira

Y'know, Erik, I think you're onto something with this club. If you recall your old classics, Jeeves (that ultimate manservant) was a member of a private club called the Junior Ganymede. It would be a hilarious bit of inside humor if every superhero/villain-serving servant in the Greater Metropolis or NY area all belonged to the same club. Of course they would never reveal their master/mistress's secret identity, but there could be some great issues in which they're sitting around in comfy chairs and each guarded reference they make cuts to a scene involving the character to whom they are allied...

I personally think that it is another Martian posing as J'onn. But what the hey, they are throwing continuity out right and left, why not characterization too.

Nope, not at all, don't know what you're talking about.


Read my past two weeks #2s last night.

Action, Detective, Batman & Robin, Batgirl, Batwoman, and Suicide Squad. All of them were surprisingly good. Batwoman was my least favorite and I'm hoping to see the end of Damian sooner rather than later.

I decided against picking up Batwing #2 and any future issues (see a previous post for details), the series opener was just too bad to warrant purchasing even a few issues.

All in all, I'm happy so far.


I'm really sorry but you didn't like batwing. I'm enjoying it so far. Looking forward to detective, batgirl and suicide squad.

My brain is officially exploded from the overwhelming case of DUMB.

Spoiler:

So, ALL of Batman Continuity is supposed to be canon and contiguous.

ALL of it. Which means Selina Kyle should be a woman in her early to mid-30's, who knows Batman's secret ID, loves him anyway, and has a strange sort of relationship with the Gotham PD due to her dual nature as a crime-fighting cat-burglar.

Except Catwoman #2 shows clearly that not all Bat Continuity is created equal... And that some severe changes have been made to her character.

Which means that suddenly Selina Kyle is no longer a mature woman in her 30's, but is now in her early 20's?

AND she doesn't know who Bruce Wayne is?

And... just... so many other contradictions to the... I just... And the...

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH!

I didn't like the way that Justice League resorted to the "Bunch of kids beating each other up on the playground, only to become best friends" trope for getting the teams together, but... eh.

Supergirl was good, though. Really good, actually. Especially the thoughts about how Clark sounded like he learned Kryptonian from a text book.

Cheliax

I finally picked up my batch of #2s and I have to say that I have been pleased with some and not so pleased with others. I actually was pleasantly surprised by Red Hood and the Outlaws and Grifter, both are on my list to keep getting. Voodoo is off my list as of this issue. Supergirl was pretty good and I am still making up my mind about Teen Titans. Nightwing is now a must read for me. I missed Blackhawk #1, and after reading #2 I am sad that I did. The rest I am still mulling over, I am going to have to make some cuts soon and I need to decide which to keep and which to let go.

I think Catwoman is one of the books that is starting 5 years in the past.

To the best of my knowledge, the only books that did that were JLA and Action Comics. Everything else was present day (Obvious exceptions like LEgion or Demon Knights excepted from this statement)

You are correct, sir. Hence my frustration. :(


Still enjoying the Batbooks despite the continuity issues people are posting about. Hope Damien gets the boot soon though.

Well, despite what people here are saying it look the the reboot has been good for DC (so far, anyways). The second month of sales was even stronger than the first, complete with DC taking over 50% of the market. It hasn't done that in quite a while.

I'm only picking up Batwing, GLC, JLI, Catwoman, and Red Hood and Legion so far.

You're seriously going to drop Batwoman before you drop Red Hood?

You astound me sir. ASTOUND, I say. I must know your reasoning. MUST!

I'm absolutely sticking with:

Animal Man
Swamp Thing
I, Vampire
Action Comics
Justice League of America
Justice League Dark
Justice League International
Superman
Supergirl
Batgirl
Batwoman

Many others (Mister Terrific, Detective Comics, Batman and Robin, etc) I am on the fence about.

I dropped Suicide Squad, Catwoman, and Red Hood after issue 1. I didn't bother with Voodoo, Grifter, Hawk and Dove, or Batwing.

I'll probably keep up with Superboy and Teen Titans, but after the latest issue of Superboy I have to stand up on a soap box and shout "REALLY, Lobdell? REALLY?"

I'm a Titans fan. Red Hood and the Outlaws has Starfire (and Arsenal). I see it as another Titans book for the time being. I can't stand Jason Todd/Red Hood and I'm hoping they get rid of him soon and fold Starfire and Arsenal back into the Titans.

Batwoman in general is a solid title. I just don't like the character all that much. I like the Barbara Gordon back to Batgirl thing, she has a richer history. Do we really need a Batwoman too? It seems like just a re-skinned Huntress.

I suppose I can see your reasoning, but I don't see her as a reskinned Huntress at all. I've actually lost interest in Huntress over the past few years, starting (I suppose) Post-COIE when she went from "Carrying on the mantle of Batman and Catwoman" to "I am now a female Punisher meting out justice against the mobs." Batwoman has really grabbed me with the character dynamics, motivations, and plotlines (unlike Bruce, for instance, Kate really does want to balance the parts of her life, seeing it as a completion issue, rather than Kate being the costume Batwoman puts on, as Bruce is for Batman).

I hope Roy and Kory go back to the Titans, too. And that Kory stops being a mannequin.


I think Kate needs to grow on me more. Batwoman is written well but I know next to nothing about Kate except her sexual preferences.

Ive been out of comics for a few years, has Kate Kane/Batwoman been around long?

I give you wikipedia because otherwise my post would be too long:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kate_Kane


Thanks that caught me up on Batwoman.


So how are we doing so far since we are 4 months in? thoughts?

Not crazy about Supergirl and Batwoman atm.
Red Hood needs to disappear and Roy and Kory should join the Titans (ditch Rampart too from that book).
Birds of Prey is fairly meh and needs a better writer.
Suicide Squad is decent but looks to be gaining momentum with me.
Batbooks have been good (please kill Damien soon).
Action and Superman have been fun.
JLA is getting better too.

Well when I get paid, I'm getting Leviathan strikes. Both for Stephanie and to show my support for the 'preboot' universe. Still on strike for the other books.


I'm still enjoying Batwing, Catwoman, and Legion of Super Heroes most of all. Occasionally pick up Red Hood and JLI, which surprise me on occasion. Suicide Squad and Legion Lost have been dropped. Not into Action, Detective, Batman or anything else really. Still enjoying pointing out inconsistencies with the on-again/off-again prudishness of armchair comic fans and bloggers with Kory(and to a lesser extent, Catwoman) in the store. Last week was hilarious- noone remembered that Starfire was doing cheesecake photoshoots in the 90s. Noone. And some of these people had been working in the store since the 80s.


I dropped Hawkman pretty fast. Hopefully DC doesn't try to relaunch him later as a silver age reboot. I always preferred my Hawkman as the reborn over and over again guy, not the alien/policeman hero that DC is already flooded with.

Suicide Squad has been fun, I added that pretty quickly.

I also get the Green Lantern books, and Resurrection Man. And Stormwatch, but that is only because of the Martian Manhunter.


Oops! Forgot to mention I also read GLC. GL is getting stupid fast as the writer(s?) is(are) doing their best to ruin the other Lantern Corps and turn Sinestro into "the main GL" again.

Really? *shakes head*

Naked Kory never bothered me. Goldfish memory Kory bothers me.* Heck She's solar powered, her entire race is, so she's one of the few heroes who has a reason to wear as little as possible.**

I always thought the 'cheesecake' shots in the 90's were funny, just because she'd say things like "What's the difference between this and nudity?"

*sigh* I miss my sister's Titans books.

Spoiler:
So much that I'm still ignoring the books. In my little world, Kory's not a goldfish, Roy's not (as big) a jerk and Lian is still alive.

Spoiler:
Unless they retcon that too. The Super Family could get away with the same thing, BTW.

Solar powered heroes are weird. Kory's always worn as little as possible (and her brother wore even less, IIRC), but Superman and Cyclops have been described as solar-powered on occasion, and they wear full suits (Cyclops, in particular, seems to absorb enough solar energy to generate eyebeams able to collapse buildings or flip over loaded tanker trucks, from the sunlight that strikes *his jaw,* which is the only part of him not covered up!).

Gosh, if that's what he can do from just the light hitting his lower face, imagine how dangerous he'd be if he took off a glove or something!

I didn't really get too worked up about it, but the authors multiple attempts to blame the fans for not 'getting it' after the fact, and his wounded-sounding expressions of shock, surprise and disappointment that people would actually read the words that he wrote and think that he meant them, were a bit off-putting.

This 'blame the fans for not getting it' meme as a justification for sloppy writing or poorly thought out characterizations or 'unfortunate implications' is tiresome.


Dropped Batwoman and will drop Birds of Prey.

Picked up #1-4/5 each of Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman. Loved Aquaman (imagine that) and Green Lantern. Flash was well done, though I'm not a fan of the Madrox-y enemy, waiting for more iconic Flash enemies. Wonder Woman I have yet to read.
Also managed to snag Legion and Legion Lost #1-4/5 as well. I'll read those this weekend.

Figures. They're cancelling Static. Which when I went to subscribe it wasnt on the list, so you know they planned it to fail at the start. They're canceling Hawk and Dove. BUT! They're giving Rob Suckfeld Hawkman and some other title. So cancel those titles as well. Great business model guys... Anyone else notice that Simone is off Firestorm?
