    I've read that, but I see other things happening. Tim, Dick and Barbara all appear to be going through changes in those September solicits.

    Those characters are going through changes, but their history hasn't been changed. Tim was still Robin, Dick was still Batman, and Barbara was still Oracle

    They've already announced that Batman Inc will be finished next year, and a member of Batman Inc, Bat-Wing, has his own ongoing in the new launch

    regression arghhh

    I know a guy who seems capable of reading pretty much any comic and enjoying it, which is quite a useful ability

    He fobs off every criticism with the "it's just a comic!" defence, which doesn't exactly address the fact that you can have different levels of quality within a medium but whatever

    Edcrab that sounds like a challenge


    you should make him read The Draco (Uncanny X-Men #428-434) and Lionheart of Avalon (Avengers vol.3 #77-81)

    both by Chuck Austen and both contenders for the worst superhero stories I've ever read.


    Like, it takes a special kind of talent to make something so comprehensively awful.

    I'm a terrible comic book fan. I'm trying to come up with something I truly, truly hate and I'm drawing a blank. Shit, I even bought all 5 volumes of the Clone Saga.

    well like the first 3/5ths or so of the Clone Saga are actually really good.


    And the whole thing is super fascinating if you know about what was going on behind the scenes at Marvel at the time. (Life of Reilly rules)

    Yeah I think Fraction as well, which would be great seeing as he writes a fantastic Iron Fist

    And by Annihilation yeah I mean the core series with Nova

    Also the Silver Surfer stuff was very cool
