Commentary on DC's March Solicitations

Justice League #7

Five years later, the Justice League still hasn't realized their excessive seams look stupid.

Justice League International #7

A bold, new and unexpected direction? Holy crap. So the book is going to be interesting?

Aquaman #7

Should Diana hide her golden lasso?

Wonder Woman #7

I also remember the myth of Hercules, making me bored with Wonder Woman's new origin.

Flash #7

Love how people think they're being more creative when they really just make a character's power simpler and more convenient. I would call it lazy writing but can't come that close to implying that this book actually has a writer. Okay, that was kinda mean.

Green Arrow #7

There is only one way a story with Oliver Queen and hot triplets should go.

Mister Terrific #7

So many titles getting new writers. But not his one. ...Digitus!

Superman #7

DC is really pushing this Wildstorm integration thing. I'm for it. If you're going to do it, do it.

Batman #7

Birdies!

Batwing #7

This makes me happy.

Birds of Prey #7

It's a shame. This book is actually pretty decent. But no Oracle? No Birds of Prey.

Batgirl #7

Oh, this is going to rile people up. Poor Gail. Stuck in a no-win situation.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #7

STOP DRAWING A MOUTH ON THE HELMET.

Nightwing #7

Given recent cancellations, it's good that Daken has found work at DC.

Green Lantern #7

Oh stop pretending about Hal. We'd be happy with just Sinestro in the book.

Green Lantern Corps #7

Didn't John just kill Mogo? Do we need him having guilt over some random Lantern's death too?

Red Lantern #7

Nice, DC. You just gave away the twist with the human Red Lantern. At least I can say early that I called it! But will the book stop being boring by this point?

Stormwatch #7

...Can you steal that? It seems kind of heavy.

Deathstroke #7

The swords. Good lord. Why are this book's covers always so ridiculous?

Grifter #7

...Nope. Other artists can't make Midnighter's new look any good either.

Voodoo #7

That... almost ruins cleavage for me.

Suicide Squad #7

I don't suppose that is supposed to be Joker's actual face from the first issue of Detective Comics.

Men of War #7

Whoa, whoa, whoa. James Robinson and J.T. Krul? ...What have you done, DC?

Hawk and Dove #7

...This transcends jokes. It transcends many things. This may now be a religious experience.

Static Shock #7

Does Phayze know Digitus?

Good as always, but what's your opinion on Wonder Woman and Nightwing so far? I've certainly been enjoying them both.

@shroudofsorrow:

I've been enjoying both too. But I think giving Wonder Woman Zeus as a father is a mistake. It trades her more unique origin for the much overused origin of Hercules, reducing Diana now to just seeming like a female Hercules. So while I really liked the new Wonder Woman book at first, I'm kind of liking it less and less as it rolls out.

Nightwing's been good. I really like bringing back Haly's Circus and making it a part of Dick's life. It makes Nightwing seem more like Dick and less like Batman-lite, which is usually a tricky thing to pull off. I'm just not thrilled with the villain and his pseudo Wolverine claws.
