Superman kicks off it's multiplicity story and it's already better than Spider-Verse. YOU JUST MADE THE LYST (and yes, that's how "List" is spelled there), weep also for Captain Carrot, or go "awwww"

JL vs Suicide Squad was fun, loved Killer Croc laughing at the idea of the teams working together to protect Waller

Batman...hmm...yeah, Bruce and Selina beat up a lot of familiar Bat-Mooks before getting comfy on a rooftop, having sex on a bed of diamonds

All-Star Batman
Huh. I really liked this. Really cool idea of Victor Fries reviving cryogenically frozen people as an army. Very interesting visually, too... a blend of prose and comic, in a way.

Detective Comics

I really liked this, too. I hated the "Monster Men" arc but this is a really cool follow-up to it with bioweapons. More interested for this and Dr. October than the Colony plot, but we'll see.

Red Hood and the Outlaws
Damn good end to a damn good story arc. I'm buying the TPB day one. Can't wait for the next story arc! Also, loved what Red Hood did to Black Mask.

The Flash

Not much happened, but a promising start to a new story arc. I enjoyed it even though it was mostly setup.

Marvel take the lead in the market share for December, but the fourth quarter of 2016 was down by 6% compared to fourth quarter 2015

Top sellers of December saw DC given most of it's slots strictly through Batman books and JL/Suicide Squad. Marvel elbowed in there with IXV, Civil War II's conclusion, Star Wars, and the relaunch of She-Hulk as "Hulk"

Both Bruce and Selina remember the first time they met...slightly differently. Bruce thinks back to the Golden Age, Selina thinks back to Year One

I have all the issues of Monster Men but never finished it. I enjoyed this issue I suppose but I missed the rest of the team. Did Batwoman look a little like Nicole Kidman to you?

No desire to read all star batman and robin

While I really enjoyed red hood and the outlaws I felt the story was drug out far too long. Could have been finished in four or five issues easily. Maybe its just that it only comes out monthly while some of the other dc titles come out bi-weekly.

Flash. Agreed on nothing happening but it was great to finally see the rogues there at the end. Even if they don't exactly resemble the rogues from the show.

Elaborate if you would, please.

Also, I actually enjoy Geoff Johns writing. Rogues War, GL: Rebirth, Sinestro War, Infinite Crisis are all great stories.

While Bruce and Selina had rooftop sex, Bruce talked about the day he met Selina, which was way back in the golden age, while Selina remembered their past differently, and that she met Bruce during the Frank Miller penned "Year One" when she worked as a prostitute with Holly and Bruce saved her.

After Selina departs, Bruce dwells on the Holly namedrop and becomes convinced she knows where Selina is going. He goes to Holly's apartment where he tells her he thinks Selina did'nt kill those people responsible for destroying her orphanage.

Holly blindsides Batman and flees the city. Selina returns Bruce to Wayne Manor and reveals to Alfred she had been covering up for Holly the whole time and that it was her that had killed all those people using the skills Selina had taught her.

Rooftop sex? It sounds like something out of All-Star Batman and Robin.

That is better, its not in Selina's character no matter what.

Earth-2/original continuity vs post-crisis which was Miller's Year One story. hmm...I pick Gold Agen/Earth-2.
