my tumblr [sic] blog. It's difficult to describe, but man, once you get into DeForge's tiny little ant world, that book is just incredible. Anyway, read my review if you like.
You can also read that if you like.
And, if you're going to Robot 6 anyway, and f you like EDILW (and your reading this sentence makes me think you probably do), then I imagine you'll also enjoy Tom Bondurant's monthly look at DC's solicitations, which is always much more focused and, ironically, less grumpy than mine. He points out that DC will need to launch 11 new titles in May if they wanna hit 52 ongoings.
I imagine some form of Nightwing (maybe a new book starring Dick Grayson under a new codename; Bondurant suggested Azrael, and I'm wondering whether it would be insane or not for Grayson to resume the currently open Robin role), Suicide Squad (Secret Six? Checkmate? Both?) and Teen Titans will be among the launches, as all three seem cancelled for reasons other than low sales. So that's three-to-four titles right there.
And if Aquaman can have a team title of his own, than there's no reason that characters like The Flash (The Flash and The Rogues...?) or Wonder Woman or Green Arrow can't (Bondurant suggested a Green Arrow and The Outsiders...although, Green Arrow and The Outlaws sounds better; too bad Red Hood took that team name).
I'm guessing May will bring Plastic Man (spinning out of Forever Evil), Doom Patrol (ditto), maybe but probably not Blue Beetle (ditto again), Club of Heroes or Batman Inc, Red Robin...um, I need three more...Jeez, this is getting kind of hard...it's gotta be difficult to be the person green-lighting New 52 books, trying to find an IP they haven't already tried and has a chance of not being cancelled in 8-16 issues...let's say...Shazam, Mister Miracle (or something New Gods-y) and...um...The Authority...?
Meet back here next month, and see how poorly I guessed!
