i'd be lying if i said i wasn't curious about the new Batman Rebirth #1 comic coming out this wednesday.

but for a first issue preview, what i'm seeing .... looks pretty 'MEH'

http://www.comicbookresources.com/comic-previews/batman-rebirth-1-dc-comics-2016

i know it's only the first for pages, but if you're selling an all new series wouldn't you want to really grab people?

eh, i dunno? but what i do know is that this so far just doesn't look very appealing.
just looks kind lame. :roll:

maybe if i have an itch to read some Batman i'll just dig out my 'No Man's Land' paperback set?

For someone who has claimed they have turned their back on DC, you sure post about them a lot.

Give in to your fandom. Embrace the warmed over storylines that still happen to feature characters you love.

The classics are always better imo... I don't know what's going on with these new reboots..

One thing that bothers me is he shouts Alfred's name aloud. What ever happen to codenames?:P That is one way to reveal tour identity.

Spike, I cannot tell if you are Dan Didio or Darth Sidious.

yeah, i'm really getting tired of gimmicks taking precedence over actual quality stories.
seems like every time they reboot they just try to become more trendy, more hip, more WOW!
i still enjoy a lot of the modern stories, but i've been finding myself actually appreciating a lot of Golden Age stories. i was never able to get into them before, but i really like the fact that they are self contained adventures.

One thing that bothers me is he shouts Alfred's name aloud. What ever happen to codenames?:P That is one way to reveal tour identity.

you have a very good point with the 'codename'!!!
i thought this new writer was supposed to be so good too?
with all that constant talk from him boasting how he was in the CIA.
you'd think a former CIA operative would respect using codenames in the field?

i thought Dan Didio and Darth Sidious were the same guy??? :lol:

In such an effort to churn out epic bada$$ storyline after storyline obvious details like that are lost. In flashbacks to Dick's days as Robin he refers to Alfred as 'Jeeves' while another codename I recall is 'Penny'. 'Jeeves' would work here.

Myconius, did I ever PM you a link to a back issue haven? I read The Lazarus Affair last night and now am eeading Batmsn R. I. P.

i got a notification of a PM, but for some reason when i tried to open the message it went a little wonky.
i'll have to try to open it again.

re-reading Batman R.I.P.? that's a real favorite story of mine. enjoy :D

Batman: Rebirth was weird.

Giving supernatural powers to Calender Man, the new sidekick has a weird Bat Bumblebee outfit, Bruce exercises by hanging on to the edge of a helipad, and he combats a weather machine that looks like the Death Star!

i'm actually relieved they've completely bungled this up! it just makes it that much easier for me to turn my back on the title. and that was NOT easy beint that i've been buying EVERY single Batman title that ever came out for years.
i've finally broken the cycle!

at least my Batman-withdrawal shakes aren't AS bad anymore??? :lol:

You beat me to it. :tlol: I had the exact same criticisms.

Calendar Man "molting" and being reborn each year... WTF. The dude's got an obsession with dates, he ain't a fugly Poison Ivy. :trolleye:

"Naw, Duke, I don't need another damn Robin. But you know what? I really like those Transformers movies... how about I call you BUMBLEBAT!?"
