    Detective is really good imo from the ones i have. I like it more than the main bat story. Orphan is a beast.

    Its sad how far behind i am. I think the main books are on issue 15 or higher, last book i got in the series is 9. Lot of back issues im gonna have to buy, but atleast the shop is pulling my books again haha. Gonna stay on top of it now that im all moved and settled.

    Titans and Batman Detective Comics are the titles that thus far have the most Watchmen connections

    Tempest was reading Kadabra's Mind and says she only got one word Manhattan

    Batman Detective Comics

    Everyone thinks Tim Drake is dead, right before he supposedly died he was captured and inprisioned by Ozymandias several issues ago.


    Well at the end of the latest issue Tim Drake Breaks out of the cell only to transported right back into the cell.

    Has anybody been reading the Hawkman Mini Series? Art looks really dope and the character is interesting to me. I dont know much about him though. I followed his New 52 series up until issue 8 but it wasnt all that.

    Started reading Red Hood and the Outlaws. Red Hood, Artemis, and Bizarro lol. Such an odd team but i really enjoy that book so far. Only up to issue 4 though, gotta go get the rest on payday next week.

    I like how they referenced the old origin for the other bizarro then named this bizarro after him.

    Lol wow i didnt notice gordons absence.

    I dont like the whole New 52 Supes, Pre New 52 Supes, and Brand New Clark situation they got going. Its a bit confusing but i dont have the most recent 4 issues yet so I dunno if they revealed wtf is going on with that or not. I really cant think of anything i dont like at the moment. If there is anything, its so minor that i dont really care. Rebirth has been a great experience for me so far on almost every book i follow.

    Deathstroke and Titans two best titles out

    Deathstroke to Crossover with Titans, Teen Titans in May Event

    Deathstroke to Crossover with Titans, Teen Titans in May Event

    A new DC Comics crossover called “The Lazarus Contract” will see “Deathstroke,” “Teen Titans,” and “Titans” investigate one of the lingering questions spinning out of DC Rebirth: Slade Wilson’s connection to the former Teen Titans.


    The four-part event will focus on Deathstroke attempting to resurrect his son Grant, the original Ravager, by hunting Titan member Wally West.

    With Wally’s connection to the pre-New 52 DC Universe there is potential for larger secrets surrounding his return to be answered. “The Lazarus Contract” will be written by Dan Abnett, Benjamin Percy, and Christopher Priest, with art by Brett Booth, Khoi Pham, Carlo Pagulayan, and Paul Pelletier.

    The event’s name is a callback to the classic “Judas Contract” storyline from Marv Wolfman and George Perez. Unfolding in “Tales of the Teen Titans” #42-44 and the Annual #3, “The Judas Contract” brought together long-brewing threads involving Deathstroke’s contract to deliver the Titans to the villainous organization H.I.V.E., and the betrayal of the team by new member Terra, who was working with the mercenary from the very beginning. The arc also marked the debut of Dick Grayson as Nightwing.

    The word “Lazarus” is also tied to Batman villain Ra’s al Ghul, which raises the question of whether the event involves Deathstroke in search of a Lazarus Pit in order to bring Grant back to life.

    Below are the covers and solicitation text for “Titans” #11, “Teen Titans” #8, “Deathstroke” #19, and “Teen Titans Annual: The Lazarus Contract” #1, along with combined cover art.

    Batman and Flash will also crossover

    n5scv5.jpg


    DC has revealed that the Batman and The Flash ongoing series are launching a four-part crossover storyline in April called “The Button.” According to DC’s description, “the two greatest detectives in the DC Universe unite to unravel the mystery behind a certain blood stained smiley face button stuck in the Batcave wall. However, what begins as a simple investigation soon turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party, and it’s not who anyone suspects. This is a mystery woven throughout time, and the countdown starts here!”

    There’s something everyone should consider about the button: neither Batman nor the Flash have any idea what it’s real significance is. The Comedian’s logo looks just like a smiley face to them, and they’re more interested in figuring out how it came to be in the Batcave. Since Doctor Manhattan has apparently been responsible for the changes in their history, he’s got to be considered the main suspect. However, it seems just as equally possible that the button was left by someone else who meant for Batman to find it. The question now is who would do that and why? Perhaps Doctor Manhattan isn’t the only God-like being playing games with the lives of the DC heroes.

    “The Button” will run through Batman #21 & #22 and The Flash #21 & #22. Tom King and artist Jason Fabok will handle the Batman issues, while Joshua Williamson and artist Howard Porter will be the creative team on The Flash‘s contribution to the crossover. Each issue of the crossover will also have “special lenticular covers.”

    Superman crossing over with action comics now...I have a son myself and Im not saying I got emotional but damn, that was some heartbreaking shit. Latest Batman issue was also kinda sad, bruce and bane's backstories..

    Deathstroke a bastard though lmao, cliffhanger will have you disgusted....

    This whole erasing time shit is a bit weird - shit might get or already is to incoherent - but Im hyped as hell for the watchmen to enter the fray....

    I mean that stuff is still DC even though it's outside the DCU though Wildstorm was part of the old multiverse. I do buy the Hanna-Barbera stuff as floppies (Future Quest and The Flinstones) but I'm just gonna trade wait the Rebirth stuff.

    I meant stuff like IDW, Image and Archie books. I buy TMNT, BTTF, Saga and the Archie relaunch book by Mark Waid. Those are good if you care for any of those properties or in Saga's case just good sci-fi. Judge Dredd and Ghostbusters International too.

    Massive spoiler for tomorrows Superman book. Click at your own risk.

    https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/03/20/major-action-comics-976-spoilers-means-dc-universe-rebirth-superman-lois-lane/

    Personally I'm cool with what they did. Works much better for me than just straight up new 52. Also we can finally just go back to calling him Superman not Superdad or New 52 Superman.

    So this mean the rest of the characters are going to merge with their "other selves"? Or is it Lois and Superman since they were the only ones that seemed to have both New 52 and pre-52 versions running around? Wonder if it's specific to both the New 52 Lois and Supes dying in that weird energy shit.

    With Superman and Lois the 10 yrs that were robbed from them manifested as a twin identity (Superdad and wife). He was split into both Superman Red (New 52) and Superman Blue (Superdad) as a nod to a classic Superman story trope that goes all the way back to the 60s and was explored as recently as the late 90s.

    That makes him an exception and hasn't been proven to be the case with anybody else.

    Anyway the Superman that came out of the merge is like a new character. A lot more familiar than New 52 in a sense but still a new ultimate version of Supes.

    So while he certainly has a lot in common with Pre-Flashpoint he also has traces of the New 52 history thoughout his career. When Barry came back from Flashpoint younger 10 years had been robbed then and there.

    But in the case of Supes since he is the beacon of hope in DC it seems like Doc Manhattan split him up in order for the collective DCU to never realize this.

    Making him think he was an exile from another earthr when technically he was always on his earth and dimension just split in 2. With one half (Superdad) containing most of the memories and the other containing a lot his brashness (New 52).

    In order to reconcile with the merge and Superman being one again after his blue half had a son his history has been tweaked because the universe had to make sense of the paradoxes. Like Jon was now born not long after the marriage and everybody knows about him being the son of the Kents instead of being born in thw batcave of the Flashpoint Batman like how it originally was.
