Is this week three or four of the weird website limbo I'm in? I can't even tell anymore.

Batman Group July 2015 Solicitations

Looky there, new solicits for July and Krillin is nowhere to be found. Surprising. NOT, because he's TERRIBLE.

SPOILERS: Batman is the new Thor, since he's out of a job in his old book.

DC Comics may have left NYC this week, but I'm staying right here! ...on the internet!

All you need to know is there is a Rick and Morty comic and it's pretty great.

Duane Swierczynski is leaving Birds of Prey


"Leaving," "Forced off," I don't know. Regardless, current (I guess now former?) Birds writer Swierczynski confirmed a rumor via Twitter that his final issue of the series is the recently solicited #17.

This is unfortunate. I enjoyed his Birds, I really did. Sure, its story telling structure was a tad bit weird here and there, but it was an enjoyable book, and created my favorite New 52 character, Starling. It's unfortunate we'll probably never get that story about Starling's Uncle Earl. Hopefully, Romano Molenaar sticks around, because I'm tired of this book not being able to nail down an artist.

This brings up a whole different set of rumors that were attached to this one (you know where to go for your comic rumors) that I'm not going to address until there's proof. All I'm going to say on the subject is this: You start to hear things, you read rumors, then see things happen... it really seems like the higher ups at DC need to loosen the editorial choke hold in a lot of instances. If another one of these rumors turns out to be true, a major red flag is going to be risen in terms of highly regarded talent and DC's current climate.

  1. That is absolutely terrible news. Birds of Prey is one of my favourite books out of the New 52 right now and I've been loving what Duane has been doing with the characters. I hope this doesn't mean this book is getting cancelled, which has been my consistent worry every time I check the sales charts. :(
