DC reboot

Recommended Posts

I would tend to agree with that until I read his resurrected Blackest Night tie-in. To which I would reply, "You can't go home again."

That’s 52. No Batman Beyond #1, JLA Beyond #1 or My Greatest Adventure #1, look forward to those in months to come, I guess. And Batman Inc #1 sometime next year.

But also, no Booster Gold, JSA, Superman/Batman, Adventure Comics, The Spirit, Doc Savage, Justice Society Of America, Secret Six, Gotham City Sirens, Power Girl, THUNDER Agents, Titans, Xombi or Zatanna. No sign of Wally West. No And no sign of a Captain Marvel or any of his family.

And with new books and new creative teams, there are also losers. There’s also no work from creators working for DC in August including James Robinson, Scott Kolins, Adam Schlagman, Jonathan Vankin, David Hine, Brian Miller, Peter Calloway, Felicia Henderson, Jock, Brian Wood, Brian Clevinger, Marc Andreyko, Tom DeFalco, Chris Roberson, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Phil Hester, Howard Chaykin, JG Jones, Will Pfeiffer, James Patrick, Marc Guggenheim, Marv Wolfman, Matthew Sturges, Nick Spencer, Frazer Irving, Andy Kubert, Fernando Blanco, Felipe Massafera, Rex Ogle, Ibraim Roberson, Scott Clark, Alejandro Giraldo, Rodney Buchemi, Eddie Nunez, Javi Fernandez, Oliver Nome, Gene Ha, Marco Castiello, Mike Miller, Howard Porter, Daniel Sampere, Ron Randall, Kevin Maguire, Jerry Bingham, Sergio Cariello, Rich Buckler, Paris Cullins, Mike Bowden, Steve Scott, Jay Fabok, Greg Tocchini, Todd McCarthy, Carlos D’anda, Pere Perez, Chris Batista, Adam Beechen, Marcus To, Andres Guinaldo, Billy Tucci, Ron Frenz, Allan Goldman, Piers Gallo, Chriscross, Tomas Giorello, Don Kramer, Geraldo Borges, Phil Winslade, Agustin Padilla, Jerry Ordway, J Calafiore, Hendry Prasetya, Mike Grell, Nicola Scott, Jose Luis, Fabrizio Fiorentino and Victor Ibanez

Of course, there’s always October…

Bleeding cool

I've actually been looking at the Teen Titans cover and I kinda think that might be Wally as Kid Flash with the red hair. Still don't have a clue who three of those characters are on that cover.

Wally was killed in the last issue of Flashpoint.

You mean Citizen Cold


And I don't think dying in Flashpoint will really mean anything to the reboot. Look at Thomas Wayne, for example, he's been dead for years, and now Bruce is dead, and will obviously be back for Batman #1 and JLA

Normally, I'd agree, Austen. But that spoiler, paired with the fact that we have seen NOTHING from this character in the announcements leads me to believe that this will stick.

But if the reboot is set at an earlier (and altered) point in their careers, his fate in Flashpoint won't matter.

The only people on that list that I could possibly miss at all are JG Jones and Fraizer Irving.


Frazer Irving

For all interested parties, I do have a post-relaunch DC gig but it's a secret at the mo :) And Gutsville still needs finishing...

And there was much rejoicing.

All-Star Superman is one of my all time favorite comics and Superman Beyond was my favorite part of Final Crisis. So I guess when it comes to Morrison on Action Comics, you could say that I. Can't. Wait.

My head hurts trying to keep those solicitations straight. So, the post-Flashpoint DCU is one where Superheroes are new but some of them still retain their status quos that involve vast back stories and oh, I think I've gone cross-eyed.
