    I'm so happy to be practically done with both DC and Marvel. My brain can't handle the noise of it anymore. Though I am reading New Romancers, as well as the surprisingly excellent DKIII.

    I'm still clinging on Secret Six, my one final holdout at the Big Two. That will probably change soon and my pull list will be officially Marvel/DC free.

    I would be interested in what is going on with Rebirth, if there was even a faint glimmer of hope that Green Lantern would return to 1 or 2 titles instead of the half dozen or so title convoluted mess that it turned into, that I walked away from over a year ago. Oh, and I guess now he wears a trenchcoat or something?

    I got onboard the Al Ewing/Mighty Avengers train late, so having just read both volumes, I just have to read Ultimates and whatever else he does with the core characters that have been in all iterations.

    Also, my most anticipated series in general is Tah Nehisi-Coates' Black Panther, so I'm reading at least two books.

    Sounds like the Rebirth mandate is to cancel the critically acclaimed but niche titles like Black Canary and Midnighter and double down on more Batman.

    Batman will become a bi-monthly title.

    Superman, too. On top of that, there's still Action Comics, plus a new title called Man of Steel.

    Omega Men and Grayson were the only two books I was reading, so I guess that's that. I guess I'll check out whatever Tom King writes though, especially if they give him something high profile like Batman.

    It is all but certain that he is getting Batman after Snyder moves to Detective. He just signed an exclusive contract, and they really only do that for people they have big plans for.

    That's cool I guess. Can we talk about how incredible Omega Men has been? Juicy sociopolitical/religious themes, intergalactic shenanigans, fully developed and morally grey characters...its been awesome. Kyle Rayner's "America da best" arc is probably my least favorite part.

    Jesus christ, how often can you rebrand yourself with a new logo, really?

    I think it's less the quantity and more the frequency. They've gone through 3 different logos in one decade.

    Spoiler for the cause of Rebirth. Probably no single panel has ever caused me to sigh with more defeat.

    DC is doing a great job releasing some of the comics I loved as a kid.

    Shadow of the Bat is finally getting released in trades, as well as Robin, Birds of Prey, and now Peter David's Supergirl.

    So awesome.
