DC in December 

Internet, I'm bored. What plaything can you offer me today?

"An obscure listing on the comics internet, your majesty. The readers refer to it as DC's December shipping items."

How peaceful it looks...




All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder #1 gets a special, extended reprint, with a new Frank Miller cover. Cue complaints in 3...2..

Some people really don't like Matt Wagner's Batman, but I think it looks great.

Gotham Central finally gets down to resolving the question that only a handful of people were really worried about: is Jim Corrigan related to Jim Corrigan?

And for its 50th issue, Will Pfeifer brings Catwoman into mind-wipe territory, with a proposition that's actually fairly intriguing and would work well to reconcile many of the inconsistent bits of Selina Kyle's back-story.

Crisis on Multiple Earth's: The Team-Ups collects a big batch of non-JLA related cross-Earth cross-overs, including the stories that laid the ground-work for James Robinson's revelation that Starman and Black Canary had an affair. And gee, remember those bygone, innocent days of yore when that was considered controversial?

Hard Time Season Two launches, and surely I can't be the only one growing weary of volumes of comic books being referred to as "seasons?"

Showcase Presents: Justice League of America: I think Pete will break up with me if I don't get this...

JLA Classified: Cold Steel: Okay, I thought the whole point of the JLA Classified label was so that there wouldn't be anymore prestige format minis and specials. But apart from that, why is it that I look at this picture, all I can think is "Oh no! The Mega-Morphs are spreading!"

Man, does Jonah Hex look good. Man, do I want to like Loveless, but am utterly failing to overcome my general apathy towards Azarello's work...

And, this is more of a general DCU observation, but I actually find myself strongly curious about what exactly Donna Troy plans to be doing in deep space with all the B- and C-Listers.

More Seven Soldiers is a very good thing.

That Best of the Spirit trade gets solicited, and I may try to pick that up. I like Eisner, and I like the Spirit, but the Archives were just too damned expensive for me.

Moon Child has the kind of pitch that makes me hurriedly shove books back onto the shelf when I'm browsing in the sci-fi/fantasy section of my local chain bookstore. "Jimmy and Shona must rescue the magical lost girl before war breaks out between the kingdoms of the humans and merpeople." Gag, gag, gag.

Midnighter looks happy.

The world ends in Tom Strong. The newest Top Ten mini also comes to a conclusion. After perusing our preview copy of #2 earlier today, I do have to say that people who passed it by in a snit because "it's not Alan Moore" are missing out on a damn good comic.

Testament may be good, or it may be awful. At this point, based on hyperbolic solicitations, it really could go either way.

I have no interest in a "Superman Robot" action figure...but I do likes me the idea of a Beppo action figure.

Mike will want this, to go on the shelf next to his Alfred action figure. It's his "older men I can pose any way I want" collection...

DC Direct finally jumps on the "mystery figure" band-wagon, and finds a use for the Who's Who name in a toy-line. Actually, these mystery figures tend to sell well for us...when it's a known property and the price point isn't too high. If these stay under $5 we can probably move a bunch of boxes of them. Any higher than that, and we're probably looking at shelf-warmers. Shazam is the only one I really like, though I could live with Batman.
