Well it's time for a new thread! The past New DC Universe Thread has run its course and it's time for a reboot. This thread is to discuss everything going on in DC's new universe which is not so new anymore.

DCnU Comics Update 07/25/12

YAY new thread! And lots to talk about.

Lots of news out this week. Lemire will be getting his third book which will be for a character already part of the new universe but won't be Batman or Superman. Oddly enough those two characters have an opening after Grant Morrison announced he will be leaving Action Comics and Batman Inc.

Speaking of Batman Inc the third issue will not be released today. Inc artist Chris Burnham announced on his Twitter there was a scene that worried everyone at DC that would be in bad taste to release after the theater shooting in Aurora. Don't know how long it will be delayed.

Luckily for us Batman: The Dark Knight has a writer that's actually good which means there is still a Batman comic to look forward to this week. Teen Titans returns fresh off Comic Con and Scott Lobdell announcing Tim Drake never was Robin. Reason enough to stop buying TT? No? What about his lackluster writing?

JLD, Aquaman and the Green Lantern books for me as well.

Ah, it has that fresh, new smell.

Some comic shops have received Inc. #3, so I'm expecting somebody somewhere to sell it today or at least scan it.

When I first saw that the dark Knight comes out this week I was like ... oh no , not again ... then I remembered that we actually have a good writer on the book now :oldyella:

I understand why they are so careful but I'd still love to see what they're cutting out.

The cover to TDK looks really good for some reason.
Does it have a new artist?

Man i hate this reboot! They changed everything i loved about the old thread and completly wiped the old continuity! Now those posts are pointless. I might leave this thread altogether even though Khris (now called Crod, stupid change!) is still the mod overseeing it. :(


Anywhooooo....

JLD and Hawkman for moi.

Im probably gonna trade wait Dark Knight. Ive only got a limited budget for DC titles and i dont really wanna pack it with Batman.

Unsure whether to get The Dark Knight - I enjoyed the last issue but, like everyone's been saying, it's hard to get used to...I'm just convinced it'll be average at most.

If anyone reads it, mind posting a little review?

Say what you want about Finch's writing but his art is still some of the best in Batman comics. imo

I'll be picking up Dark Knight, Green Lantern and New Guardians.

Disappointed there's no new Batman Inc. Hopefully not a long delay on it

Batman INC got delayed over sensitivity issues. Most retailers got the book today and some are still going to sell it, so I had a glance at it. I don’t think it is as bad as people say. The book has NO connections to a shooter, terrorist, or theatre scene at all. The book just explains how Leviathan overtook Gotham and other smaller countries through ‘revolutionary’ methods. We see a teacher pull a gun on a class full of students, and at the end of the book, we see an executioner readying to hang Bruce Wayne, with a hanged child in the foreground in a school girl uniform. It is possible that it’s actually the little person from earlier in the book, but I wasn’t clear on it.

Gruesome images, but they didn’t make me think of that shithead murderer.

Keep Calm and Batman

This is weird , those pictures remind me of the film
Spoiler: show
how Bane took over Gotham with promises of giving the city back to the people and Crane as a judge
but they have nothing to do with the shootings at all , or have they ?

And by the way
Spoiler: show
Could it be that Redbird is Damian ? That line he has on this panel really reminds me of him ... and they are both the same age and size .
