That's a...pretty lackluster month's worth of solicits. Even the trade section is pretty uninspired.

The final issue blurbs look like they could apply to any number of half assed solicits. For some reason the books look for the most part like they are putting less effort into them as opposed to more. I know that's partially due to my disconnect from the whole DCnU line and not caring about things without nostalgic value. But still, does anyone else feel like most of DC's line of books are half hearted attempts?

None of it feels like innovation. Even in Batwoman with JH Williams, the art its amazing but its not something we haven't seen from him before. Some books are really good but none of them are breaking the mold or pushing any boundaries
