DC reboot

Recommended Posts

The more reveals DC does, the less books I realise I actually care about reading. Right now, DC has me with these:

Johns Green Lantern

Batman #1 as Scott Snyder as his run on Detective is gripping and a lot of fun.

Batwoman: For the art.

Possibly:

Nightwing: I've enjoyed reading about Dick Grayson in the past few years.

Aquaman: I'll wait till I hear what people say.

Grant Morrison's Superman: I'll wait for others to say what they think.

IGN has a ton of news on the Bat-books.

Let's see if I can recap:

-Bruce is now the only Batman.

-Damian is still Robin

-All the stuff with Dick and Damian as B&R still happened.

-Barbara is Batgirl again, though it's not said whether her time as Oracle ever happened

-Dick is Nightwing

-Jason has his own book

Everybody mark off "unnecessary character regression" on your bingo cards.

By the way, unless Gail Simone and / or Ethan Van Sciver are attached to the project, I will give Nightwing a try for a few months.

I always preferred Barbara as Batgirl than Oracle. Not by a lot, mind you, but enough that I'm really happy with this.

NIGHTWING will be written by Kyle Higgins with art duties handled by fan-favorite Eddy Barrows.

Also:

In the wake of our announcement of a historic line of new #1’s within the Batman family, many of you noticed that while several of the titles and characters spun out of the Batman, Inc. storyline, there was no mention of that series itself - but there’s a reason for that: Grant Morrison’s BATMAN, INCORPORATED series will return with a new issue #1 in early 2012.

Grant Morrison had this to say about Batman, Incorporated:

“Batman, Incorporated will continue through to Issue #10 and August’s shocking season finale that changes the Batman status quo yet again. The series will take a brief hiatus while I work on a major new project to be announced shortly. Batman, Incorporated returns next year with me, Chris Burnham and Batman: Leviathan, the epic 12 part conclusion to my 6 year Batman saga. Don’t miss it!”

I'm not crazy about either creator, but my previous statement stands; it'll get a few months from me.

I'm guessing that the "major new project" is the Superman book that was hinted at.

Can't wait for the finale to his Batman run. Since I started buying comics again, it's easily been the most engaging I've read over the years.

Looks like Ivy to me.

Pretty sure the Ivy-looking one is Thorn, since that character has a similar look but actually has a history with the Birds as a semi-good guy. Ivy wouldn't make much sense. It's the one in the middle that I'm drawing a blank on.

I guess Jason Todd has gone back to his old outfit plus a red bat-symbol on the chest. Are we getting references to Batman Beyond here?

Boo Dick being Nightwing again. His team with Damien was awesome, I can't imagine the father/son being as much fun. Also, what the blazes is Tim Drake going to be doing? Still on Outsiders?

It could mean Morrison is being given Action Comics. Edit Stavros beat me to it! :fist:

That Red Hood cover looks like a bad Dustin Nguyen copy to me. So, Jason gets to run an Outsider style team, I can deal with that.
