I don't currently read this series, but this little preview has me tempted. 20 issues in though, might have to pick up a trade or two.

It's definitely worth it. The first 15 (or 16, if we count the zero issue) are brilliant stuff. Seriously, one of the best team books out there and definitely the best team book in DC. Robert Venditti took over in issue 16, and honestly? I think he's doing a fantastic job as well. I'm pretty sure this series is getting cancelled soon (gee, thanks for the huge amount of advertising, DC!) but what the hell, if I can get one more person to read it, it's good enough for me.

Joygirl says to read. So you must.

OH VANDAL SAVAGE I MUST HUG YOU!!! Why don't I know a guy like this in real life?! (and it's nice to see a more civilised aspect of the Amazons in N52. They keep record of their escapades! *proceeds to ponder implications*)

They need to stop referring to Shining Knight as 'her.' Maybe Exoristos is trying to protect him, but the other males are there, so, that excuse is flimsy.

Wouldn't either pronoun technically be valid in some sense, though?

Awesome! This series has been nothing but greatness. These characters are so amazing. I hope this series doesn't get cancelled, but even if it does, I hope DC will find some plans for them in the future.

But being referred to as male is clearly what Shining Knight prefers. Ystin sees himself as male, and has always been insistent on being referred to as such.

Hilarious preview!

This book's been good from issue #1 and still going strong. Will probably get cancelled but the more issues we get before that the better.

The absence of Chang is noticed :(

Hillarious otherwise.

Well said! IMHO this is DC's best series at the moment and everyone should read it. I really hope it doesn't get cancelled...but I'm afraid it's too good to last.

I hope the end of The Demon Knights doesn't mean it could be cancelled.

I love that design for Hippolyta, I just wish she wasn't blonde.

One of the best series in the New 52 from #1

Posted by VanAce

I have been enjoying the series from the first issue. It is not doing great in sales so hopefully it is doing well in trade.

Posted by The Stegman

The series is brilliant, seriously it one of the hand full of New 52 titles that's been consistently well written from issue one. If you aren't reading it, READ IT!

BUT DC Comics just did a huge politically correct PR campaign promoting Batgirl as the having the very first transgendered character ever in comics so we have to ignore Shining Knight and Wotan and Invisible Man/Woman and sort of Dr. Fate during that JM DeMatthias storyline, and I know I am forgeting a bunch of other transgendered characters that have shown up in comics for the last 20 years before it became a political issue.

Are there really big fans of this book? I always liked the idea of it but by issue 11 I just kept thinking, "I can't believe I am bored with a book starring Etrigan and Vandal Savage. The idea is awesome but the writing has been boring and weak.

I reminds me of this writers other book, XO Manowar, started great, great idea and then boring as hell for the last year. I am seriously nervous that this writer is taking over Green Lantern.

It's a shame that good series like 'Demon Knights' and 'I, Vampire' don't always get the sales figures they deserve ...

Why is Ystin blond?

Can't wait currently catching up with the book after I loved the first trade and I loved the last arc and I hope this one's good as well.

Nice to see some insights to Themyscira.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Venditti's on board with this so of course I can expect great things happening from these upcoming issues like this. Awesome!

I love this book!

Bernard Chang's art is missed though:/
