    Why didn't anyone tell me that Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E. was cancelled? I'm going to miss that book.

    I might have to start dropping more of DC's titles...

    At least Frank's a member of JLDark now, which has been pretty good lately.

    Though man, as fun as Frankenstein was, that was a really shitty 'final comic'. A one-shot, earlier in the timeline, filler comic ignoring everything you've had in the last few comics (which you have to read Swamp Thing/Animal Man to find out how it ends) is not how you end a comic.

    Hopefully I, Vampire gets a better ending.

    In April, DC promises a "What the...?!" moment in all their New 52 issues that will leave readers in a state of shock. To keep fans guessing, they've teased out partial covers.
    Buzzfeed got exclusive access to the logo that will be blazoned across each issue, guaranteeing it is 100% "WTF Certified."


    We also tried to get the inside scoop from DC on plot lines but they're playing it close to vest. The most they were willing to part with was a handful of tantalizing questions to whet our appetites. Can anyone figure out which comic each of these are talking about?

    • Booster Gold reappears while an entire team disappears
    • One team is trapped in a bottle while another is changed completely
    • Some heroes change their colors and other change allegiances
    • Pandora battles to the death
    • A close encounter of The Dark Knight kind
    • There's a new, old Creeper and some old New Gods.
    • One hero quits, and another hero dies

    The G&T Injustice thread linked some pages from Scans_Daily, it's terribad.

    Can Superman just get a break sometimes?

  • sweetcreamscoopssweetcreamscoops Registered User regular
    God dammit DC, I'm getting tired of defending you every month. It's not even that they're promising big, shocking changes, but that they're actually calling it "wtf" month.

  • RedDeliciousRedDelicious Registered User regular
    • Some heroes change their colors and other change allegiances
    Green Lantern-related obviously.

    it's going to be awfully depressing when "WTF month" is a resounding success

    DC already tried some form of this in the Final Crisis Aftermath titles. I don't recall any of those books getting much love.

  • KingofMadCowsKingofMadCows Registered User regular
    Maybe it's actually a cry for help. They're asking, "WTF is wrong with DC?"

  • sweetcreamscoopssweetcreamscoops Registered User regular
    I think I'm going to drop Justice League Dark. Lemire has tons of great ideas and concepts that he's (re)introducing but it all feels so strung along and pointless. Each month it's just a bunch of magic characters and objects showing up for the sake of showing up.

    I do wonder what they're going to do with New Guardians now that Kyle's mastered the whole spectrum.

    what on Earth

    that looks less like a human being exploding and more like someone popped a balloon filled with strawberry jam and giant-size Red Vines

    Liefield even said this about DC right now:
    I believe when you pick a creative team, you have to let them run — if not, then why did you pick them. The DC thing was just awesome to experience up close and personal. Even with all the leaks from others and all the commentary, even from me, you have NO IDEA how crazy it was. Changes on a 24-hour basis because the corporate directive or the editorial directive woke up in the middle of the night and decided they saw a rainbow. Or a unicorn. Just crazy. And at this point, there’s enough out there that you can’t just write it off or dismiss it. And here’s the deal, I LIKE THOSE PEOPLE. I don’t wish any of them ill. My whack editor is gone, but the rest of them are decent, they are just running a crazy house. It was great fun while it lasted, but I had to get out before the cuckoo-birds laid eggs in my head.

    Please let a close encoutner of The Dark Knight kind be Grant Morisson hijacking the plot of Batman Incorporated for a catmandu style alien abduction issue.

    I just recently got in to comics with animal man/swamp thing/JL Dark, and I'm hoping we get to exploding babies soon. Otherwise what's the point?

    Oh how I wish that were true.

    But they're trying.

    Also, the Injustice thing is dumber than I ever imagined.
    Superman has cause to hate the Joker. Superman gives up his normal rules.

    Remind me, how is the Joker not a big red smeer on the ground stretching across fifty state lines? Don't tell me. I'm betting it's even dumber than I'm thinking.

    So it looks like Starlin is killing off Stormwatch in issue 19 and replacing them with....

    Another version of Stormwatch.

    Wow.

  • DelduwathDelduwath Registered User regular
    I'll be honest, I forgot that Stormwatch was even a thing after being phenomenally not interested in it after the first issue or two. Too bad, since I'm a big fan of the Authority, and wanted to see how those characters fared in the New52 universe.

    Is the series actually good? What's happening in it?

  • Garlic BreadGarlic Bread Registered User, Disagreeable regular
    We're getting a better Midnighter costume and a worse Apollo

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    It has gone through so many directional changes that I doubt it has any clear voice by now.

    Cornell had a solid pitch but I didn't really like the actual issues, then from what I saw Milligan did pretty much nothing interesting with them and now Starlin is on it and that dude is pretty terrible nowadays.

    Well, I liked Mystery in Space.

    And absolutely nothing else he has written since then.

    No way they're actually dead. Not only are they leading up to them in team 7, they wouldn't kill of two of their bigger gay characters. It's going to be an obvious fake out and then DC will announce Authority later this year.

    Edit: fuck, I totally didn't notice the other Apollo and midnighter standing right next to them. I guess they're clones or something. Gay clones

    Also, I like the new 52 midnighter costume, get rid of a couple lines and a few of the spikes and it's great.

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    So, is this new or am I just really out of the loop?

    Raven's New 52 look:

  • sweetcreamscoopssweetcreamscoops Registered User regular
    This was the first time we saw it close up, yes.

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    It was shown way back in the first month or two of the New 52, there was a sketch in the letters section.

    CYpGAPn.png
  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    Yeah, I thought I might be out of the loop there.

    Still, can I say now that that is atrocious.

    She's also on the cover to Teen Titans #17

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Is that The Ray?

    I kinda liked that mini and was hoping he wouldn't show up in Titans.

  • Garlic BreadGarlic Bread Registered User, Disagreeable regular
    I don't think it's him. He's got an actual costume and they're building to the Freedom Fighters

    It's probably someone similar to Solstice

    I like the Raven feathered cloak and covering her face gives her an other worldlier look, which fits the character. But the feather mask and body suit need to go.
