I'm down. The return of Amethyst should make some people happy.

Actually, i think I'll pick up the Sword and Sorcery book too. I'm not really interested in the Phantom Stranger book but it'll probably be important for that whole Trinity War thing.

So it looks like Voodoo, Captain Atom, Justice League International, and Resurrection Man are getting the axe. The first two aren't surprising, but i'm a bit more surprised at the latter two.

JLI was announced a while back, but it sounds like they're going to replace it with another book. The rumor is Justice League of America. Resurrection Man, I'm sad to see go. The other two aren't that surprising, although I am surprised to see Legion Lost still going.

I hate Legion Lost. Why do I have to fuckin' read this book in order to understand what's going on with my Titans??? I'm getting tired of crossovers, and I'm still a 1-year noob to comics!

If they do replace it with JLA, then they would cancel another book to keep the 52 books thing going. They've already announced the four books replacing it.

I hope that they cancel Batman: Dark Knight, or Detective Comics, but they'll never do it because those actually sell (for who knows what reason).

I read somewhere that Legion Lost got a pretty good bump in sales because of the Culling crossover, so maybe that's why it's staying for now. I doubt it'll survive the next round of cuts though.

And seriously on the Batman books. Batman: TDK is useless. Though it might be saved with #10 with a new writer. We'll see.

I am in the same position. The New 52 brought me in and the crossovers and pointless attention grabs put me off again. The stories are just forced (often) and uninteresting. Even though you guys lolwutted my reason to drop I, Vampire, it's exactly this. These books don't tell a story, they are marketing themselves all the time, everything else is just tacked on (including the story and characters). I just don't care then, even if some of the stories are good. Zombies vs. Vampires in the DCU, wtf!?! For what reason except "Zombies always sell well!" ? I don't have the money to give DC any more benefit of the doubt. I did stay around for Batman, Animal Man and Swamp Thing, but I feel like they feel different to me. Back to Indie books, I guess. Seriously, read Dark Horse Presents, dammit!

It may seem contradictory, but I agree. I like Ressurection Man and Suicide Squad for their over the top stories and characters (although the women in RM were a bit too caricature for my taste), just like I enjoy Deadpool. But these books don't try to be more than cheap thrills, laughs and action. That's cool, I get them digitally a month later and enjoy them. Would never drop more serious books for their sake though. Still, WTF, Resurrection Man had a lot of ridiculous, cool ideas.

I just think if you loved the book, you'd at least give the writer the benefit of the doubt.

I understand that and maybe I should, but trotting out Zombies out of the blue is just a shark-jumping line that I cannot stand being crossed. Especially when it is presented as "THE FIGHT OF THE MILLENNIUM! WHO WILL WIN IN A FIGHT BETWEEN ZOMBIES AND VAMPIRES??? ZOMG!" That is stupid and even if I've loved the book so far, it just turned me off completely. Maybe I'll jump back on later, but I will not support this nonsense.

I'm probably in the minority, but I liked the Amanda Conners run of Power Girl. It didn't take itself seriously much and there was something special about the eyes of the characters that made it nice.

I can understand the need for change in her outfit and all... however, I still prefer the version where she was more built like a body builder than the current one. Oh well. :/

Oh, well, either way, I kinda wish they'd bring back Conners for another run since it was so enjoyable.

I know all you apes are all "LIEFELD WAAAAH" but he's kind of the story this week as he abruptly dropped all 3 of his books and left DC and has started kind of a minor shitstorm over the editors controlling his books. Regardless of what you think of Rob, this kinda story has been coming out a LOT since the New 52 from guys like George Perez and whoever that newbie was writing Static. New 52 seems like it's still going strong but the stories coming out make editorial over there seem straight up draconian. :lol:

I don't know anything about about his work pre52, but his shit in the N52 sucks, so I won't miss it.

It's like dc is trying to figure out a way to formulate the most repugnant art that can possibly sell


Even though it doesn't really make sense, theat joker cover is the best of capullo's covers, except for the dumb digital text on the back of the shirt.

OK - the GL Annual was dumb. THIS is what we've been building up towards? The "Third Army" is simply The Heartless? Boooooooooooooooo.

Superman annual was pretty good, but it kind of ends in a deflated manner where it's like "uh... ok - what was all that for?"

JLI was the tits. So sad to see it end; hopefully Booster will be back with the JLA or somewhere else.

kevinep3 is insane for not liking the Flash annual - it's easily the best of the bunch that got released last week. So the art is a little disjointed - it still looked okay (compared to Superman, which looked like ass) and the story was coolbeans.
