Williams and Blackman aren't even being allowed to finish their Batwoman run. Higgins, post if you are ok.

It seems retarded to me, that the DC Villains Month issue centered around the Penguin, is called "Penguin #1" when there was already a Penguin series, completely with its own #1, that concluded a while back. This should be like, Penguin #10 or whatnot.

I find it hard to believe that there isn't already at least one Batman comic every week, and unless it's like a 4-panel webcomic I doubt the same creative team is going to be able to sustain a weekly schedule, so really, what does that even mean?

It means four non-Batman, non-Superman titles are getting cancelled and replaced with a weekly Batman comic that's written by a collection of a bunch of dudes.

Pls Master Higgins, don't fail me. Read it yourself. You don't really have to have read anything up to that point in GL, or the other books to understand what's going on - the annual is very self contained. Please read it, so you can talk about it tomorrow. I need to hear your vim and vinegar to justify my own POV. Like, of all the stupid shit DC has done in the recent past, this has to be the worst. They took their best franchise/book, which had a longer string of excellent quality books than anything else that I can remember, and then not just shit the bed with it, but fucking torched it to the ground and shit on its remains. It's pretty much the worst thing I've ever read. I don't want to read comics anymore after this issue.

God, every week of comics is getting worse and worse out of DC. Lana Lang mind-broken by a tentacle monster, Carol Ferris NTR'd, Huntress turned into a body horror, Power Girl body-snatched into Brother Eye... This is getting to be like shitty fucking hentai. Starting to feel like DC hates women.

DC hates everyone. How did Carol get NTR'd? I thought that is what was happening to Hal. Did Kyle turn on Carol?
I can't wait til Future's End is over and it turns into what it should have been described as all along; a what if story that nobody will think about, and one that definitely does not reflect the future of the DC universe. Hopefully Convergence isn't just further down the rabbit hole of dumb stuff.

Trek crossing over with other stuff is a pretty regular thing for IDW comics. The recent Legion crossover was actually pretty good. I fell off of the Doctor Who crossover, but people liked that? Having the Enterprise (especially the crummy Abrams Enterprise) jump universes into the GLC makes about as much sense as anything else. Remember when the Enterprise and the X-Men teamed up?

I don't know how anyone can read the massive pile of filth that has been the Snyder run on Batman and think it was anything more than the lowest gutter-filth ever put to a page.

I know you're behind on your DC Comics buddy. You should really give Zero Year and End Game - the last two arcs - a read. It's absolutely stunning how fucking retarded they are. Like, this final issue just makes no sense. It's also hilarious how much this comic fucking hates Alfred and the wringer the poor guy has gone though in the past couple years. Guy spent the last few years getting literally tortured at every turn, and they finish things off here by cutting his hand off and leaving him so broken and dejected that he doesn't want it reattached. Like, GTFO Snyder. :lol:

I really need to reitterate how fucking bad Snyder's Batman, and this Batman #40 was. It blows my mind that it's apparently Higgins' best selling book. Like, WTF is wrong with comic fans??

Higgins, buddy, talk me off the cliff here. Between this, the hot pile that is Convergence, and how DC took my favorite comic and lit it on fire (Earth 2), I'm ready to jump off. Literally the only thing I read this week that didn't make me want to cut myself was Multiversity. But I still want to cut myself, because it's fuckin' over now, and I need me some more multiverse drug-comics.

Justice League, staring nobody in the Justice League. It wasn't a bad issue, but it wasn't good. It was 20 pages of setup, that could have been condensed into three. I'm also not looking forward to the hoops that Johns is going to jump through in order to get both Darkside and the Anti-Moniter to Earth 0. And also after reading Multiversity and how magnificent it was, I'm not exactly all that excited for a lower stakes cosmic battle staring shittier versions of the same heroes. Also also, after reading Darkside rape Earth 2 for the last few months, I want nothing to do with this current editorial mandate at DC atm.

I don't know, people love Batman.

And JL is a set-up for Darkseid War. One of the best comics I've read this year!

And Batman is the best-selling monthly comic industry-wide since it started, so it's not just me.

How has Batman Eternal done comparatively? Because even though that book is filled with art drawn by gorillas, the story there was a million times better than the hogwash in the regular Batman book.

Nigga I know it was a setup. I'm just having serious event-fatigue. I can't remember the last time there wasn't a bullshit event going on in one of my comics. And seriously, after Earth 2: World's End, fuuuuuuuck Darkside, I don't want to read anything with him in it no more.

Kenzo, I'm pretty sure I just read confirmation that the Batman Beyond book will be Tim Drake after Future's End.

Holy shit, DC apparently going to be putting half-page ads on the same page as art... From a Chris Burnham tweet that has since been deleted.
