Oh, wow. The art. Somebody needs to turn that wind machine off, because both hairs and capes are wildly flying around. And somebody please tell the JLU to stop standing like they are striking a pose...

Having not read The Flash #30 yet, I have to thank you for the spoiler in the title of this topic. You could have at least kept it vague like in the original article, but no: you just had to spoil the surprise/change for everyone.

My issue here is not with whether a character is gay or not. In fact, I absolutely adore the idea of DC exploring new interpretations for established characters. I love it when they shake up things this way. If they don't work out, they can always reboot it again, but at least they've tried doing something fresh and new.

But no, that's not my problem. I saw this article in the featured section of the Comic Vine homepage, with its huge SPOILER ALERT text written all over it. That would have been fine, if it weren't for the fact that the picture that accompanied it was, in fact, a clear spoiler of who this character was. Why do you even bother telling readers there will be spoilers in the text when you are spoiling the surprise with the image you are posting?

So, yeah. Thanks a bunch, Sara Lima.

I don't really follow Marvel's comics, but all the hype surrounding the end of this series made pick up the last couple issues to see how everything would unfold. Am I the only one who thinks Johnny Storm isn't really dead?

I know I'm nitpicking here, but those of you who have already read  Green Lantern #62... 

Mind you, again, I'm not complaining about anything. I'm just surprised something like this could happen.

Mmmm... I think I'll pass. I'm not interested at all in the TV show, and probably won't be about the novels. I don't like that they start milking a series when it becomes popular. If I want a bout, I have my Riverside Chaucer still waiting for my free time...

Yeah, next week. And The Road Home: Batman & Robin and The Road Home: Red Robin have been moved to next week too. Two The Road Home were supposed to come each week, but now we have four next week and none this...

From The Source:

New York, October 7, 2010– Beginning January 2011, DC Comics will implement a line-wide pricing adjustment, lowering the prices of all standard length 32-page ongoing comic book titles currently priced at $3.99 to $2.99, it was announced today by DC Comics Co-Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio.

“Today’s announcement re-affirms DC Comics’ commitment to both our core fans and to comic book store retailers,” said Jim Lee, DC Comics Co-Publisher. “For the long term health of the industry, we are willing to take a financial risk so that readers who love our medium do not abandon the art form.”

“As Co-Publishers, we listened to our fans and to our partners in the retail community who told us that a $3.99 price point for 32 pages was too expensive. Fans were becoming increasingly reluctant to sample new titles and long term fans were beginning to abandon titles and characters that they’d collected for years.” said Dan DiDio, DC Comics Co-Publisher. “We needed a progressive pricing strategy that supports our existing business model and, more importantly, allows this creative industry to thrive for years to come. With the exceptions of oversized comic books, like annuals and specials, we are committed to a $2.99 price point.”

When taking into account mini-series, annuals and specials, more than 80% of DC’s comic books will be priced at $2.99.

As of January, the following titles standard length ongoing titles, previously priced at $3.99 for 32 pages/22 story pages, will be priced at $2.99 with 32 pages/20 story pages:

American Vampire;
Batman: The Dark Knight;
Batman Incorporated;
Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors;
JSA All-Stars.

As of January, the following licensed titles, previously priced at $3.99, will be priced at $2.99:

Gears of War;
God of War;
Kane & Lynch;
Ratchet & Clank.

As of January, the following ongoing titles previously priced at $3.99 for 40 pages/30 story pages including co-features, will no longer include co-features and will be priced at $2.99 for 32 pages/ 20 story pages:

Action Comics;
Adventure Comics;
Batman: Streets of Gotham;
Detective Comics;

The Spirit.

In January, five books are $3.99 for 40 pages/30 story pages:

The following oversized anniversary issue will be $4.99 for 48 pages/38 story pages:

“Fans of our co-features should stay tuned. Some of these characters will find a new platform,” said Dan DiDio. “Going forward, mini-series and special events may feature a different price point and page count to best allow writers and artists the flexibility of format and story pages they need to tell their stories best.”
