    Snyder is on Batman the main title, If you found David Finch or Tony S. Daniel entertaining they will be back with The Dark Knight and Detective Comics, respectively.

    Nightwing thing hurts, but the comic itself looks somewhat promising. Jason Todd comic as well if you are into that. New Birds of Prey seems rather interesting to me actually.

    I know, it's big but I really needed to share this with my buddies here in DC Comics. In ALL the years he has been drawing comics, Liefeld has not improved at like...all.

    Let's highlight what I can tell easily that is wrong:

    1. Feet were conveniently left out, they prove to difficult to get right.
    2. Why is Dove's fingers all the same length?
    3. Those hips don't lie.
    4. WHERE IS OTHER DOVE'S ARM?!

    Power Girl is returning in the new universe it seems. Her human persona is said to come back in one of the 52 launch books but they are not saying which one right now.

    DC is shying away from the JSA (particularly guys like golden age Flash and Green) right now. Because they want Superman to be the first superhero in their world. I couldn't agree more and no JSA hate but this is always something that bothered me about their concept. Our world's first superhero, Superman should be their first superhero too.

    I don't mind the JSA showing up as a team that worked in secret long ago like they did on Smallville. Or have them come from a different world or something. Superman should be their first real publicly acknowledged superhero. Just my 2 cents on that.

    Hmm mind elaborating on the hips? I agree to the other 3 though, lol.

    Oh and what I heard about PG is that her human persona will only be around, so she might be depowered or some such.

    They just look weird as shit to me, like if she stood up straight something would be inherently wrong. Weak arguement but still.

    Finished up Legion of D.O.O.M #1 and #2, whoever said it was bloody wasn't kidding, holy crap. Fun though, I like the story being told and it makes Heatwave seem more intimidating as a villain.

    Finished Citizen Cold series, maaan, this is THE Flashpoint tie-in to me (Equal to the Batman one), was so good and just a very nice drama played out and a fun story. I like how most of these tie-in's have nothing to do with Flash and are just fun Elseworlds style stories.

    Ive been on the fence with DC ever since they ruing Cassandra Cain. Inc and Gates have been great and Im glad to see her finally come back......only to get shafted once again because Johns and Didio have a hardon for silver age books. So of course we get Babs back in the bat girl suit completely ruining her last 20 years of development. I trust Gail Simone to make the best of it, and Ive read her comments over on CBR but eh....I don't foresee this going well at all.

    Also BATWING?! Seriousl DC Cass fans have been hurting for years now and you're giving a monthly to the guy who showed up for a page in Batman Inc and did **** all of nothing!? You're screwing with us on purpose now

    DC Stuff I got:

    R.E.B.E.L.S first trade (I heard good things from here and otherwise and always loved the Legion universe but am confused where to dive in, this seemed the easiest and most interesting).
    Flashpoint #1 and #3 (I only had #2).
    Batman: Knight of Vengeance #2 and #3.
    Batman #713.

    He still lives in Glasgow, is there a chance of bumping into him?
    There's a very good chance of running into him, and I hope I'm going 100 miles an hour when it happens.

    Took out the picture since it's big, but hahahah. This is so true. Seeing Liefeld's art today makes me cringe even though I don't remember having a big problem with it back in the 90s when I was a kid. I'm really not sure what it is. CBR had another Liefeld image in their Twitter art post for the 52 Reboot and it was just terrible. Some guy in a gray suit in a chair...?

    Snyder is on the main Batman book? Hmm, tempted to give it a try now.

    Anyone who hasnt read it, it is now mandatory for you ALL to get the three Flashpoint Batman issues. SOOOO good, words cannot describe that work of art.

    Probably the best new comic I read this year, hands down.

    Well that wraps it up for Gates of Gotham

    damn I loved this mini. really makes me hopeful things to come with Snyder and Higgins. He did alright by Cassandra Cain and that means he's a-ok in my book. and damn I loved the art
  • SanoSano SRKSANO on PS4 Joined: Posts: 13,032 mod
    Finished reading the Batman Arkham City mini. Pretty good story and artwork to match, but you can probably skip this comic altogether and jump right into the Arkham City video game with no real problems. Which was probably done intentionally to be fair.

    Anyway Robin showed up in it and... I really haven't been keeping up with the game and stuff but he had blonde hair? Who the hell is that supposed to be? OG blonde Jason Todd?

    Don't get me wrong Arkham Asylum is a great game but my biggest gripe with it is the character designs suck and it looks like I'm not going to like them in Arkham City either. The only character that looked good in Arkham Asylum was Joker because they pretty much left him alone. I just wish they did the same for everybody. None of the designs were broke and none of them needed fixing. I'm still getting Arkham City but I wish the character designs, particularly the costumes were better. Catwoman looks good in the new game, but once again they left her design alone for the most part.

    Well if it is Tim Drake Robin in Arkham City I guess dying your hair blonde is one way to hide your secret identity...

    Justice League 90s Retrospective was hilarious and great. It was written by Keith, J M DeMatties with beautiful art by Kevin Maguire.
    If you're looking for a good laugh definetly pick this up.
    Sigh Giffen era JL is best JL (even if they don't have Aquaman)

    Good luck, I am still waiting on Flashpoint issue #2 and #4, along with FF #2. Diamond is being dicks lately since they are the only large distribution of comics, they set things at their own pace.

    Got my copy of JL#1 tonight at a midnight release. So far # 1 is going on a good start. They even had a raffle for the 25$ variant cover, I got that amazing luck lol.
    I also picked up 1-5 flashpoint. The moment I saw zoom on the front cover for #5 had to get it.

    @flashpoint - Ah I get it now lol.

    I dont see the point of a midnight comic release, what a dumb idea. Especially when said comic is like 30 pages and resolves nothing. Even for DVD/BD releases it boggles my mind.

    Games are cool though.

    First issue of JL was a good read.

    Cyborg starting out as a JLer bugs me, it's Smallville all over again. But in the sketches in the back they call him a 'Titan to be.' I guess if he eventually joins the Teen Titans it's cool.

    I guess they got tired of using John Stewart as their media black dude, time for Cyborg to step in and take the load off.

    So my local comic shop owner told me Stormwatch is perhaps a series worth keeping an eye on in the relaunch. What do you guys think?
  • SanoSano SRKSANO on PS4 Joined: Posts: 13,032 mod
    Yeah I think I'm sticking to JL, Action Comics, Nightwing, Batman and Robin, Outsiders, Teen Titans and Swamp Thing for now. If you try Stormwatch let us know how it is.

    Lol I remembered that Cyborg and Firestorm were the newest characters on Hanna Barbara's Super Powers cartoon. I guess there's some precedence for Cyborg starting out on Justice League, other than Smallville.

    Not sure if he's even going to join the JL right away and they might just be retelling his origin. The current JL story is a flashback story and the book will eventually take place in current time like the other books. Maybe Cyborg will join then. Hmm.

    Justice League was interesting, not much there other than macho throw my super dick around moments between the boys but eh. I liked it for what it was.

    My 52 pull list that I can remember: Detective Comics, Batman, Nightwing, Green Arrow, JL, Wonder Woman, Swamp Thing, Flash, the Demon one.

    Might get GL and JLI but dunno.

    Ok so I just read DC's preview of the new 52 and I gotta ask... Why so many Batman titles? There's like four just for Bruce Wayne. I'm not really a DC reader so I don't know how these titles are different from one another.

    Anyway there are a handful I'm interested in. Good time to get into DC.

    It's because everyone loves Batman and his books sell is all. The same reason Marvel puts Wolverine and Spider-Man in everything.

    Batman won our character fan poll a while back. Hell people are talking about Batman in the Marvel thread. :rofl:

    Mainly picking up Batman and Robin because I loved Tomasi on this book and Nightwing before. Aside from that waiting for Morrison's Batman Inc. to return and wrap up. Kind of tired of Tony Daniel and not familiar with the other Bat writers.
