Judd Winick's Batman book looks fun. That's "fun" as opposed to "grim and dull retread of something Frank Miller did years ago."
I wasn't going to read Nightwing past the War Games storyline anyway, and the new writer pretty much insures that I won't.
The solicitations for Batgirl and Robin sort of spoil War Games, don't they? Of course, by the time most people see these solicitations it'll be in a hard copy of Previews and the storyline will be over, so it doesn't really matter.
Still no mention of Supergirl in anything...guess they were just teasing us...
Oh, and NO, the solicitation for Adventures of Superman is not a Identity Crisis spoiler...Lois was shot in AOS a couple issues back.
I'd sort of heard that Scott McCloud might have a Superman project in the works sometime back, so I'm glad to see it finally materialize as Superman: Strength.
In Aquaman Lorena officially becomes Aquagirl. Maybe DC will manage to have nothing horrible happen to her for a couple of months...
Bizarro World will probably get some of my money.
I'm going to end up buying Deadshot and The Question, aren't I? On the other hand, I probably won't be picking up Breach, so I'm not a total sucker for new series.
"A jailhouse wedding goes horribly wrong" in Hard Time. Oh, I can't wait!
Mighty Love is released in soft-cover. I didn't have a blog at the time, so I never got to tell all you lovely people how good the hard-cover was. If you missed it, be sure to pick up the soft-cover edition. You'll thank me for it.
Oh, well, Monolith was good while it lasted. It occurs to me that maybe some advance word on the danger of cancellation could have prompted people to try and raise the books profile, but then I remembered that according to DC it was those nifty book-plates and free copies of first issues that improves sales on faltering titles, not good word-of-mouth from people on-line...
Am I the only one who thinks that Luthor's armor in the first issue of Identity Crisis was a red herring? Because lots of people seem to think that the info for January's issue of Teen Titans seems to suggest that it was some sort of pivotal clue.
Wait...Monolith is cancelled, yet Richard Dragon continues on? There is no justice in the world, is there?
Yeah, I know that we're getting a Seven Soldiers of Victory Archive because of the forthcoming Grant Morrison series, but still...what does and doesn't get put into an Archive doesn't always seem to make much sense.
Someone, somewhere is a little too excited about the Blue Beetle appearing in Justice League Unlimited, I'm sure.
Beyond the DCU
I've not got the slightest interest in any of these...
People tell me that ABC Warriors is good, but I think I'll be content to take their word for it.
Chaos Effect collects two stories I'd long planned on picking up anyway, so $20 seems like a reasonable price to pay for the two of them.
I can tell by looking at the ones that have already come out that the CMX titles are of a superior quality than most other US manga publisher's books, especially in terms of reproduction and paper quality, but I've got to say...story-wise and art-wise, I'm really not interested in anything I've seen so far.
New Planetary, and otherwise I'll be buying the stuff I ususally buy and ignoring everything else.
For the survival of the franchise, DC better hope that Constantine doesn't bomb. I'm already seeing the usual pattern of lots of people who don't buy any Vertigo books buying Hellblazer comics (that I saw with Catwoman and Hellboy and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and From Hell...), and if the movie bombs big time we're going to be stuck with a lot of extra trades we won't be able to unload.
Although, that being said, I might be interested in the Rough Cuts trade, as I'm not a fan enough of the character to be particularly interested in following his exploits in either monthly or trade format, so a "Best Of" book might have some appeal.
As for the rest of it, like the Wildstorm books, I'll be getting the same stuff I was already inclined to get, and ignoring the rest.
