DC Comics!

The Legion of Superheroes are back! A 2-part prelude miniseries, Milennium, ends in October and Legion of Superheroes #1 from Brian Bendis and Ryan Sook is out in November! It looks neat!

Suicide Squad is also relaunching in December! The creative team behind the outstanding Injustice comics, Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo, are at the helm and look to get the book back to its "anyone can die" suicide mission roots.

Birds of Prey and the Bad Subtitle is out in February! It looks like it could be rad! At the very least it has a good cast!

Also there is a Joker movie in October and it is probably going to get nominated for a lot of awards and it makes me very tired and sad

    I used to like LoS. I wonder if I should pick it up. Do I also need this Millennium series?

    Pretty sure this LoS is a complete reboot

    It isn't really essential. It is just following Rose (and Thorn, who are immortal, turns out) through the thousand years of the DCU leading to the Legion.

    It is more to establish a concrete timeline of the DCU's future ahead of that than anything

    The first volume of animal man showed up but the other two are weeks away vol 3 I was charged for but I'm hoping it just shows up?

    Animal Man is v good The Coyote Gospel almost didn't reach its hype until "I'm sorry I can't read it.'

    I don't see Joker on the HQ poster, so that's good, right?

    The audacity to bring back the old Teen Titans, only to wrap them in the Teen Titans Go goofiness, is something to behold

    I saw that movie at San Diego Comic Con and it was legit good. Yeah... I'm sure it will piss some fans off, but I think it's worth it. The interactions alone throughout the movie made it worth it. I should watch the first movie and buy this new one when it comes out.

    TT Go started really rough, but they really hit a stride where there's just some amazing episodes. They're different shows, but if I had to choose I would pick Go over the original one.

    TT Go was always just a level of too goofy for me. I only really enjoyed it when it was bashing on itself or other DC stuff. Which is why GO to the Movies was so great and I'm sure this will as well

    Comics news:

    Brian Azzarello and Emanuela Lupacchino's Birds of Prey has had its orders cancelled and is being delayed till 2020 to launch as a Black Label mature readers title for the BoP movie

    The writer of Batman following Tom King will be announced tomorrow for Batman Day. (Tom Taylor has already confirmed it ain't him)

    Tom Taylor has also been revealing more new characters for Suicide Squad:





    With the book's editor saying how great they all are and how stressful it is having so many rad new characters in a book with a very high death rate, which means a lot of them probably aren't sticking around super long

    Welp, word leaked and James Tynion is taking over Batman, supposedly for #86-#100, with a new #1, new creative team and new Batman coming after #100.

    Tynion is quietly one of DC's best writers so I am happy he is getting the gig, even if it is for a short run.

    'Osita' is apparently Spanish for 'little bear'.

    The Legion of Superheroes' arrival got further expanded on in this week's Superman and it was pretty cute:

    Time traveling back to the most important event in their history and accidentally showing up 4 minutes early and fucking up the flow of the whole thing is a very good first impression

    You know its kinda funny. As I recall Chloe was the real breakout character of Smallville. In a vacuum if you considered bringing characters from that show in to the Crisis you'd probably bring back Clark and Chloe. I didn't watch the last couple seasons so maybe that wouldn't be possible but

    I would think the bigger problem would be isn't Alison Mack in jail for helping to run a sex cult?

    ah I thought you were referring to some in-story reason for her being unavailable like being a sentient computer or erased from existence in a time paradox etc

    They'd never bring back Chloe, because if she met Felicity, the world would implode or something. At the very least, the two of them would die in some Timecop kind of thing.

    DC confirmed the post-King creative team is James Tynion and Tony Daniel

    Which definitely makes me think the whole "temporary creative team till #100 and then a new book and new Batman" story is legit, as both are talented creators who will make a good book, but not very exciting

    Tynion has written a lot of Bat-Books over the years, with Daniel drawing a fair bit of his own, including the conclusion of King's run, so neither really brings a sense of fresh excitement to the table

    Still gonna buy it though

    Some additional details:

    Dick Grayson will be (finally) getting his memory back and returning as Nightwing in Tynion's run
    The Riddler will be the focus of it, with other villains playing smaller roles
    Lucius Fox will also become a prominent supporting player

    The latter of which makes me think
    the Luke Fox Batman rumors are shaping up
