The Superman books are starting to lose me. Between fill-ins on both titles, event tie-ins, and some awful message comics in Superman, there have been quite a few books that I have skipped or wished I had. Hopefully once we push through the Mr. Oz stuff, there will be a refocusing. At least the Imperious Lex storyline sounds promising. Other than that, my list is the same as the last one I posted above.

Looking at the latest sales numbers, I guess I better start the pre-grieving process for Cyborg and New Super-Man. Everything else I read seem to be at least in the "on the bubble" zone.

I decided at the last minute not to carry on with the James Robinson WW. He's a writer I've never liked as much as I wish I did, and I was honestly just not feeling that enthused, and didn't want to waste time on a book I was likely to subconsciously sabotage anyway. But I will keep my ears up, and if I hear good enough things about it from quarters I respect, I will give it another go.

Other than that, I continue to like/love all my other Rebirth titles. I've been thinking about giving Detective another go. It was probably the toughest call I made in my drops. But again, I'll probably wait for the Mr. Oz event cycle to settle first. Diving back in with an issue sure to push my event-fatigue and continuity wallowing buttons would be pointless.

I think I can officially say Rebirth has lost me. I wasn't able to keep track of the titles I was buying when I began working at Yankee Stadium. I was too busy with that and the comic store, and dealing with Baltimore Comic Con, NYCC, and the writing for Super-Bloggers and Point Horror and Endangered Bodies.

But ever since my schedule slowed down again, I simply haven't had the interest to go back to the books I was following from Rebirth. Batgirl, Titans, Superwoman, even Batwoman by Marguerite Bennett. The only one I've held onto is still New Super-Man. Wonder Woman I, of course, dropped when Robinson began writing and have become increasingly determined NOT to support it because I want nothing to do with that garbage plot thread about her having a twin brother., and the fact that's he bringing Vanessa Kapatelis back just for a rehash of her Silver Swan arc makes me hate the man even more. Titans slowly lost me with and now with the reveal of the evil Donna Troy I don't want to go near it. I stuck with Rebirth because I was hoping to see more of the real DCU, but nothing to my true satisfaction. It's still all just being forced into the mold the New 52 created and I'm sick of it.

I don't care what Johns does with Watchmen or Dr. Manhattan, kill them all and be done with it. I've never cared about Doctor Oz. None of this Dark Matter stuff interests me and I would've LOVED to read Terrifics if Tom Strong is involved, but if there's a Legion link I don't want to go near this. I'm sick of waiting to see when they're going to bring back more of the pre-Flashpoint DCU, but when they do it just gets ruined. I want Linda Danvers and Lian Harper and the real Duela Dent. I want Cass Cain and Stephanie Brown to be included whenever they do stories about Bruce's kids and not just the Robins.

I wish DC had never brought Barry Allen back and I hate Grant Morrison and Geoff Johns for doing it.

I have mixed feelings about Christopher Priest taking over Justice League. On the one hand, I love Priest and will give just about anything he writes a shot, even if I'm dubious. But he described it as "heroes in the real world," a tag I thought we left in the 90's were it belongs. I'm not sure I'm down for another round of "the public distrust these godlike beings floating above humanity." I'm also a little dubious about "The Fan," a character who knows every detail about the League and uses their own weaknesses against them "for their own good." Sounds suspiciously Superboy-Prime to me. There are plenty of aspects of fandom that need to be addressed, but too often when creators do it, it comes off as them looking down on fans that are beneath them. I can get on board with "we need to reform our community," if it's done well. "You losers need to get your shit together" is a much harder sell.

On the mutant third hand, his first arc begins with Batman making a mistake, possibly the most shocking and innovative new Batman concept in the last 20 years.

And like I said, I like Priest enough to give him the benefit of the doubt and try it out even if I'm not sure it's for me. Especially since it seems to be fulfilling his career-long dream of sitting at the adult table and handling the A-list properties.

I haven't grabbed this week's Flash yet. I've been avoiding the Metal tie ins, but the previous issue ended on a pretty important cliffhanger. Is it picked up in this issue, or can I safely wait for the crossover to pass?

You can pick up Flash #33 it has nothing to do with Metal.

And on another topic, I've officially dropped Titans because I do NOT need this crap with Donna Troy in my life right now.

I just picked up the most recent Titans. It's pretty bad

Also I was unimpressed with the second trade collection of Batgirl. It's too young for me
