Hitch will be leaving JL shortly:



Hopefully they replace him with someone who makes the book worth reading again.

I haven't been loving or hating JL (it's a bit slow and underwhelming but not bad per se), but oddly enough I thought #25 was pretty good.

I haven't been reading JL. The sales are not good.

Word. Saw a pretty apt description of it the other day: high concept, bad execution, zero consequences.

When it launched the New 52, DC proclaimed, for no good reason, that there had been super-heroes on Earth for only about 10 years. But then the Society comic tanked, and Dan and Jim came up with the idea (ha, ha!) to bring the real JSA intact to the present day from 1951.

To make that happen, they really did come up with an idea, and an awful one. Or, more likely, Geoff Johns came up with it. It turns out that everyone's memories had been fucked with, so that nobody remembered those old super-heroes! Whoa!

But guess what? Marvel decided not to play along with that! So now what?

What exactly are you using as proof to back up that theory? Cause Jay Garrick already knew Barry Allen post-Rebirth... and I don't think that works if you're plucked from 1951.

As far as the world forgetting about the JSA, which was teased in DCU Rebirth #1, that's about the only thing anybody ACTUALLY knows for sure. My money is on Wonder Woman being a part of the forgotten JSA now and JL in present day.

And who cares about Marvel's Prehistoric Avengers. Legacy was supposed to fix their universe, doesn't really look like it's gonna play out that way with Mammoth Rider there...

I suspect that the 10-year specification was Geoff's idea too. He tends to build nice, neat, hard little boxes and interconnections for everything, which in the long run have a strangling effect because stuff does need to be changed occasionally. You shouldn't make something utterly rigid unless you're going to make it utterly perfect, which is impossible. His is the kind of neat-freak approach that Felix Unger would take.

It might please readers who suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder, but it does NOT generate good stories.

In saying this, I'm also acknowledging the positive contributions that Geoff has made to DC in terms of helping the company sell comics.

Ha, wouldn't be surprised.

Looks like Hal is going to lose an arm as part of this event.

These covers are going to be better than the actual book.

He may lose an arm there, but will it even be mentioned in the GL titles? I thought they didn't have any real connection anymore? DC seemed to give up on continuity.

Well, I'd take the Zatanna figure.

It's hard to not have a soft spot for Zatanna.

Hopefully not with Rock as the leader of the Suicide Squad?

So...Metal #1 came out...Decent issue. Typical Snyder exposition but its nice to see Greg Capullo take a shot at drawing the league. That cliffhanger does nothing for me though. One of these days, I'll care about Neil Gaiman.

I thought plotwise, it felt like Snyder trying to do Morrison. But I liked it. I don't know that I quite get all that's going on, but it's enjoyable.

Store was sold out, I didn't care enough to actually order a copy through Diamond. What's the synopsis of the Yearly Event this time?

I am now picturing Sandman shows up as a horse, with Dr Manhattan riding him into battle weilding a lightsaber, looking all 90s badass, to the shock of the fall of '17 DCU crew.
