Wait....I am confused. So the New 52 is gone? We start back with Green Lantern#70 and go from where it left off? Link and explanation please!

Oh, for the luvva...

If they want to walk it back, then by all means, actually walk it back. This "happy medium" nonsense is just going to further confuse their continuity and isn't giving anyone what they really want. It feels a lot like they realize the New 52 failed in a lot of ways, but they don't want to admit they messed up and just go back to the last thing that worked.

Honestly, what DC really needs is a big shakeup in upper management/editorial right now. They've been making a lot of very poor decisions for a long time now.

i think they will be keeping select elements from both 'pre-flashpoint' and 'new-52' universes?

i don't think they'll make Barbara Gordon become Oracle again?
and Batman will still have never known of the existence of the 'Court of Owls' operating in Gotham for years right under his nose?

from the Solicits they'll be keeping both the 'Lois & Clark' as well as the 'New52/DCYou' Superman titles going?

i've dropped all Justice League books. as those seem to be the most likely to have a 'cash-grab/cross-over' event as well as anything Superman.

hopefully the writer taking over for the 'Dick Grayson' comic does as well for the character as Tom King and Tim Seeley did?

Give the man a transfer to Warner Bros. TV. He can be at least somewhat effective in a way there. Win-win for all.

How strange of him, a DC guy to openly promote the other company's character's film.

Being extremely skeptical of public faces in general, I'd say his motives can be described as:

1. Divert the topic of conversation onto something that people aren't actively worrying about.
2. Demonstrate hipness and reassure worriers that "hey, I like the same things you do... new DC stories will be great!"
3. All of the above.

Also, it's specifically a Fox-Marvel movie, not a Marvel Studios one. Marvel Comics and Fox have a very strained relationship to say the least. So... there's another way to read it.

Oh my goodness, I did not even think of that. I am embarrassed.

Brilliant, Holmes!

The May solits are out. Nothing very indicative of Rebirth in them, other than a couple of variants that "call back" to the first issue covers when the New 52 started.

Some of the creative teams for the books seem to have vanished. They've had to bring back Wolfman to wrap up the current arc for Cyborg for instance.

i guess we'll have to wait for all the new number ones to really see what "rebirth" is all about?

They are somewhat promoting the film. Does anyone have the Contest of Champions App? It is featuring Deadpool level this month. There is also the Spider-Man/Deadpool mini-series. So even if only a light push it is getting a push. Its not like its a Fantastic bomb. I think DoFP fixing the problems the best it could with X3 helped restore the franchise in Marvel's eyes as it did fans. Of course Marvel would like it for it self but I think it is content.


Perhaps we seeing one Earth during New 52 of the 52 different Earths and we are about to move back to a previous Earth we were reading? That way everything counts. That would go along the lines of Convergence.

yeah, convergence as a story was pretty terrible, but at least the uniting of the previous universe and new universe together was a good idea.

Some interesting details from this week's DC Comics. Altered/resurfacing memories, potential "ways out" for Dick Grayson, and the fate of the original Titans

I really don't want Gail to sign that. I want more "Clean Room" more than I want her at DC.

If they don't sign exclusive does that mean they will no stay on or DC give them crap assignments opposed to those who do sign? Any way about this does not feel right.

while i'm really happy there's talks of Bringing Nightwing back, i'm just hoping they give him a good new creative team!
the previous writers were excellent!!!

i am a bit concerned out this exclusivity with creators though.
i've seen too many writers and artists pushed to the breaking point, were even some of the most talented were producing cruddy comics!

Say bye bye to Vision. Tom King is now exclusively DC alongside Clay Mann and John Timms
