    I wonder how much time is supposed to have passed since Static escaped the Dark Side club.

    I really want to drop plain Batman, but I love Daniels's art so much when it's handled by decent inkers and colorists.

    I also really want to drop Streets of Gotham, but I've fallen in love with the manhunter backup.

    Judd Winick isn't a good enough reason?

    Winnick's done.

    I'll give Daniels another try, because I think Battle for the Cowl was: A. fed to him beat by beat via editorial and winnick, and B. really really poorly inked and colored, leaving it feeling pretty flat and average looking.

    If Winnick cycles back onto the book after this Daniels arc, I'll definitely drop it.

    They've already confirmed that Tony Daniel and Winick will be alternating after every 5 issues.

    I feel like I've heard so many things from DC lately that ended up getting changed at the last minute, that I won't believe it until I see solicits for it.

    No real surprises.

    Hmm.

    I also think I'll be skipping the World of New Krypton trades for Vol 3 and 4. It's an alright book, but I detest how it's being collected (with the Codename: Patriot hardcover stealing its two best issues).

    It looks like BN: JSA is a continuation of BN: Superman.

    I don't really get why they're splitting up all the Superman books in trade format, as it reads a lot better in trade in the order the little S Symbol says, even if it goes over 5 titles.

    Yeah, I was hoping to see something about the Azzarello pulp series, but unless I skimmed over it, I didn't see anything about it.

    JOE THE BARBARIAN #1
    Written by Grant Morrison
    Art by Sean Murphy
    Cover by Sean Murphy
    Having an overactive imagination can get a kid through a lot, but it doesn’t change the facts: Joe’s still the kid in school that can’t fit in. He’s the victim of bullies. His dad died overseas in the Iraq war. And then there’s the Type 1 diabetes he has to live with.
    So is it insulin-deprived delirium or something much, much bigger that transports Joe to a land inhabited by all his toys – from ninja commandos to action robots to magical knights to star fleet captains? Is Joe really the savior of this wild fantasyland that’s been held under siege by dark magic and evil forces? With the help of a samurai rodent, is he ready to take back besieged castles and win the freedom of an oppressed people? Or is he just an over imaginative boy who could die if he doesn’t take his meds?
    White-hot writer Grant Morrison follows up his phenomenal BATMAN AND ROBIN with an epic adventure that’s Home Alone by way of Lord of the Rings accompanied with to-die-for art by future superstar Sean Murphy (YEAR ONE: BATMAN/SCARECROW, HELLBLAZER).

    Why'd this need to be released in January again? I'm not seeing any Blackest Night references in there.

    Other than that, Joe the Barbarian sounds pretty awesome. Everything else DC had already pretty much revealed with the ridiculous number of solicitations previews.

    Edit: Okay yeah, they're collecting the Superman books in the dumbest way you could possibly imagine.

    I'm not too upset about the Superman collection methods. Those first 5 issues of each book really are completely separate from eachother, and integrating them would just be stupid.

    The Codename: Patriot Tie Ins are in a similar boat.

    I'm upset because the two issues of WoNK that lead directly into and out of Codename: Patriot are also extremely good issues that could quite easily stand on their own (since they're prologue and epilogue to C: P, but also really important to WoNK itself beyond status quo reasons).

    Anyway, Joe the Barbarian sounds neat, and it's safe to assume that Seaguy Eternal will be Morrison's next vertigo book afterward, probably around a year from now.

    The solicit for B&R 7 also makes it safe to assume that the big reveal in Blackest Night #6 will probably involve the first big hint about Bruce Wayne, leading directly into Blackest Knight which will probably give us even more hints.

    No, he has one or two other (new) Vertigo books coming out after Joe the Barbarian. Who knows when he'll get around to Seaguy again, especially if the rumour that he'll be writing Superman and Wonder Woman books pretty soon turn out to be true.

    Joe the Barbarian sounds cool. I guess I'll put it on my list of things to trade wait.

    It missed a month in December, ostensibly for reasons related to Blackest Night.

    Cameron Stewart stated that the issue was done in time to ship for December, and that he wasn't sure why it had to be delayed.

    I was under the impression it missed December because of the skip week, which would have been its regular shipping date (last week of the month). I'm guessing they just spaced it out to bank some time for whenever Quitely returns.

    Nope, the regular ship week was the first week. #7 is skipping december and comes out in the last week, so it'll be over two months between issues
