SPOILERS: Batgirl #52

How do you end a book that kind of already ended?

Rebirth: Legacy and Who's to Blame for the New 52

In one of the most meta-contextual things DC has put out in years, without Grant Morrison's involvement, hope returns to the DCU.

The final week before everything changes!

SPOILERS: Harley Quinn #28

God damn it Harley, why do you have to be good when I want to save time by writing about less books.

SPOILERS: Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death #5

Well, this book could have been so much more, but I'm kind of just... not that into it anymore.

SPOILERS: Batgirl #52

Batgirl says goodbye to Gotham as she hits the road for her new series... except her other series where she is in Gotham with the Birds of Prey, but you know... comics and all that.

Rebirth: Legacy and Who's to Blame for the New 52

Today was it, Rebirth happened, and boy did it happen. I managed to stay away from most of the spoilers. Found out due to no one having chill who the POV character was, but considering I just randomly tweeted that guess out days prior, I'm not that mad... so you know #FHIZWASRIGHT! But I had scanned across some of the... late game stuff I guess, and wish I didn't, but what are you going to do?

So, I'm gonna talk about all the books right here and now. I'll get to my Batgirl write up tomorrow. Justice League, Superman and Rebirth, some summary of what went down and my thoughts... But first, let's get to the real revelation of today: Who is to blame for all the miserable bleak New 52 nonsense that DC is desperately trying to fix

Batgirl #52 Preview

Welcome to Gotham Spoilers, ironically, seemingly the last bastion of the internet that won't indulge in Rebirth spoilers. That said, maybe don't scroll down on the DC page for this preview unless you want to see a picture and a headline for a big spoiler.

Stack Rundown, 05/22/2016

T'was the week before Rebirth, and all through the house... Yep, that's pretty much where I stopped thinking about that one. Was going to throw a Berganza joke in there, but just too many syllables to try and cut down.

But anyways, I read jack shit this week. Initially it was just one other issue, then I decided to pick up Invincible despite last month, because I just literally had nothing else to read.

Looking Forward: May 25th, 2016

Well next week is sure to be interesting.
  • Batgirl #52: I don't know, some bad guy and Babs goes on a road trip.
THEN THERE'S REBIRTH. To be perfectly honest, I may use Wednesday for all Rebirth talk, whatever that may be, and hold off on Batgirl until Thursday, because you know... New "I'll get to it when I get to it, this ain't my job" FHIZ and all that.

But Rebirth is going to be a big deal, clearly. Not only do we have that Rebirth issue, but there's also Justice League #50, which I think, for better or worse, is where Geoff Johns is gong to tell us who he wants the Joker to be... and then he runs off to "course-correct" DC's movies.

Can we talk about that? What does it fucking say, that ONE movie into your big shared universe, Warner Bros goes "Ah shit, we got to "course correct" this right now." Step one: Stop relying on Zack Snyder, thank you!

ANYWAYS. Yeah, Joker... I don't know how I feel about that, but I'll tell you when I do.

SPOILERS: Harley Quinn #28

Of course when I think "I really don't want to spend time writing up this book anymore" it puts out an issue that actually does a pretty good job of being more than just 20 more pages of one-note gags.

SPOILERS: Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death #5

Okay, maybe I was off on my Swamp Thing prediction, but given the solicitation for the final issue, can't blame a guy for trying... Instead we get a far less interesting last page... Yay?

Batman Group August 2016 Solicitations

August solicitations roll around. Nothing to really note in terms of changes in creative teams... there better god damn not be, I'll tell you that. Kind of disappointed that we've seen a couple of the covers already. Also, Gotham Academy is getting an annual.

Harley Quinn #28 Preview

Okay, I don't know, maybe I'll do a full post on this. I'm reading barely anything this week, so having just a stack rundown post with this issue would seem silly.
