I'm not against Clark and Diana as a couple, but I'm not a fan of how it's been executed so far in the comics. Their relationship is obviously more of a plot device than an organic pairing of two characters with a mutual attraction. From what I read in Justice League, it looked like Diana was just trying to find a way to protect Steve Trevor from bad guys going after him to get to her. Could she be getting some genuine "feels" from the relationship? Maybe, but we all know Clark will eventually find his way back to Lois.

I'm sure it will all be over by the end (or beginning) of Trinity Wars.

I won't be buying his comic. I think the garbage he's written about the LGBT community over the years is disgusting, but I support his right to free speech. I just won't be paying for it.

Babs. When Bruce dies, Dick takes over the mantle and inherits the ring. Next time he sees Barbara (presumably going by the Wonder-Bat mantle), he pulls out the ring and pops the question.

"Will you... Um, Barbara... Babs, will you take this ring.... and uh, not kill Superman with it? Unless you have to."

I love the book, but I have to agree that sales do not equal quality. Batgirl is a high profile character in the Bat-family, so it's getting a boost from all of the Batman crossovers.

Over the past year, Gail Simone has written a solid book, but there hasn't been a big WOW inducing issue until #13 when the series really hit a boiling point. Based on the foundation laid in that issue and Simone mentioning that the second year outline dials it up a notch, by this time next year Batgirl COULD be the best book in DC.

Assuming DC doesn't re-fire Gail.

I just want the legacy characters to come back. Steph, Cass, Donna, Wally, the entire Arrow family, etc.

@McLovin123: Get Saga by Brian K Vaughn and Fiona Staples on Image Comics. It's hands down the best book this year, and it's only 8 issues into the run so I'll be easy to catch up.

Also, Comixology does a 99 cent Marvel Monday sale if you want to catch up on various back issues.

The idea that Diana doesn't know where babies come from is pretty problematic for me. Other then that, Azzarello's Wonder Woman continues to be one of my favorite books month to month.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm watching Year One now.
