The only title I'll be losing is Sinestro.

Will have to see who the creative teams are for this Rebirth, and what characters are in each title before I dive in.

Hopefully this year is just the first wave. I'd like to see other characters in their own titles, like Captain Marvel/Shazam & Plastic Man.

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

A LOT of books are going to be shipping twice a week, and we haven't been told anything about creative teams. Is it possible that some of these stories might continue as back-ups? You could easily do a few pages of Sinestro in the back of a GL book, or any of the other characters who seemingly won't be having a book.

I'm pretty excited for Rebirth overall, though. 2.99 price point is HUGE with me, now I just have to wait and see the creative teams.

Sorry about JL3001. I just started with that as a kind of ersatz Supergirl book. Still, if we get something approaching a "real" Supergirl it might be worth the swap.

"Don't believe me if I tell you
Not a word of this is true
Don't believe me if I tell you
Especially if I tell you that I'm in love with you

Don't believe me if I tell you
That I wrote this song for you
There might be some other silly pretty girl
I'm singing it to

Don't believe a word
For words are only spoken
Your heart is like a promise
Made to be broken


Don't believe a word
Words can tell lies
And lies are no comfort
When there's tear in your eyes


Don't believe me if I tell you
Not a word of this is true
Don't believe me if I tell you
Especially if I tell you that I'm in love with you

Don't believe a word"

The cynic in me says they're going to 11 pages for 2.99 so the biweekly books are going to be 22 pages a month for 5.98. :P

Wouldn't be shocked if he's in the new Teen Titans title as well.

Based on the fact that, every time they've ever tried to do regular back-up stories in the past they haven't sold, I seriously doubt it. I say that as someone who likes having back up stories.
If they would just be honest with themselves, every comic would have a Batman back-up story. It would increase sales of every comic. Except Batman. And maybe not Detective Comics.

Don't worry, this time I'm sure they'll go "Full Poochie" and he'll be radical TO THE EXTREME!

Or maybe they'll just come up with a half-assed way for Ted Kord to come back from the dead, except this time one or both of his parents were killed when he was a kid for some reason. This whole thing IS modeled on Johns' "Rebirth" comics, after all.

Just give me back the JSA and I'll be happy. Earth 2 is ok but not good enough.
 
But hey, thats just my opinion..

Maybe, oh please, PLEASE, let it be Ted. Give him a chance. It's been so long since he had a book, and maybe they can have him a "detective, acrobatic, scientific beetle", kind of like right before Max blew a hole in his head, when he was finally doing something that mattered a no one believed him.
 
I have had a rebirth.

No solid information yet, of course, but the promo picture showed Jaime and Ted - not that such a thing means anything.

Looks like more information is supposed to be announced at WonderCon. Dunno how much we'll get before that.

DiDio has said that the 80 page Rebirth one-shot will have (paraphrasing) "the most controversial thing EVAH in a DC Comic."

There's also a rumor afloat that the controversy will be...

SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
The POTUS will be killed...

^Not sure how that'd be the most controversial thing done in a comic.

So what WOULD be the most controversial thing ever?

Reinstating the red Super trunks? (doubtful).

Reinstating the Golden age history for the JSA? (No, that would be the most universally beloved decision since reinstating the Titans history...well, some of it).

Killing a Robin? (Hmmm, Tim doesn't seem to have a home other than TT, but they said Damien will be the TT-Robin). Hmmm.

Reinstating the pre-52 Wally? Hmmm.

Outting Bruce Wayne as Batman? Ok, yeah that would be, but done recently with Clark and Dick Grayson.

Seems like most of DC's recent choices have been controversial for their lack of respect for their own past.
