Eh, I think the people that are left are going to stick around for most things. DCYou was supposed to bring in a lot of new fans, but they tried to appeal to a demographic that doesn't actually *buy*...

A lot of stuff looks really good. The only thing that's a definite "no" for me at this point is Detective Comics. Not a fan of Tynion's work at all on the Bat-family so I'll skip that.

But man, a...

I really loved the film and I'm wondering just what the heck has caused the massive critical backlash.

It was (to me) better than Man of Steel, Age of Ultron, or Dark Knight Rises. Not my favorite...

I wasn't super hyped for this movie to begin with - Ghostbusters is my favorite movie ever, but 2 is pretty forgettable. So to me, it's one of those "lightning in a bottle" deals where you can never...

These were 3 of the books I picked up this week as well. Cyborg has been a huge disappointment for me, too. He's a fun character in Justice League, but in his solo title he's not really likable. And...

I will miss Justice League 3001, Sinestro, Martian Manhunter, and Robin. But here's a thought I've had.

I think the man in the mask was the real Jay Garrick, the Jay we've been following is some takeoff of The Rival, for sure. The only thing that throws me off a bit is the fact that he has done a...

There's been an R-rated superhero movie for 18 years now - it's called Blade and it was awesome.

To be fair to DC, how many crossovers have they actually done since the relaunch? They've all been pretty self-contained - nothing like Infinite Crisis where EVERY book was affected, outside of the...

Future Quest and Wacky Races looks AMAZING.

Scooby Doo is a bit of a head scratcher, but Giffen's writing it, so I'll give it a shot. Flinstones doesn't really appeal since it just seems like the...

Marvel's latest reboot's a flop, with books selling BELOW their levels before the reboot.

So I think DC's smart enough to realize a line-wide reboot isn't a good idea.

Rebirth is a powerful term...

TV shows (and movies) sadly have absolutely no effect on comic sales, as has been seen many times. So DC having a Supergirl book out now wouldn't really mean a thing. People who watch the shows...

Interesting.

I'm enough of an animation geek to tell those silhouettes aren't from Timm's work or from Brave and the Bold - so it definitely looks like a new show.

I loved all the DC Nation shorts...
