You do realize Natu is far from new, don't you?

No shame in liking this more than Teen Titans, TT just isn't too great lately.

Your information is incorrect, Venditti was ALWAYS set to write this, Fialkov was supposed to write Green Lantern CORPS and Red Lanterns.

I love Shining Knight and Exoristos and how they were portrayed before. I haven't liked all this Caine stuff or what happened to Shining Knight, and knowing this series ends, it's really hard for me to be motivated to keep going through this and then the remaining two to follow. I want things resolved, but it seems my fear of things being rushed and characters just not acting like themselves is true.

I'm glad to have read your review. Knowing what's coming will lessen the blow a bit, but I'm still sad to see how things appear to be ending.

Thanks for the support, and yes, it's always sad to see series go from it's prime to slowly dying as an imitation of itself. It's not 'bad' but it just isn't awe-inspiring anymore. It's always nice to know when I have someone to grieve a dead series with.

Actually the Frost Giant spy waited for them to reopen the portal to Midgard so they could invade.

The first panel ties into the last panel. They bookend this issue by acknowledging it's place in the numbering between issues #10 and #11, right in the middle of the climax. That IS Alfred the Cat looking at Damian's grave.

I think Catwoman somehow recognized Escalate, not the host.

Yeah, it took me a full 10 minutes to figure out what was supposed to have happened with that throat slitting.

I like the idea of the serum a lot, especially since it's been all but revealed since Deadshot was revived AFTER they recovered a body part of Resurrection man.

Basically, the short-term suspense is trader for deeper darker psychological implications. Now Amanda is free to do even more horrendous things to them to keep them in line. They are truly yo-yos in her hands, unable to escape, even in death. Amanda Waller OWNS them. Period. It suits her character amazingly, which is something's she's in desperate need of lately, and the psychological implications of being owned so completely and killed and brought back repeatedly is far more delicious an idea than any cliffhanger.

Actually Philip Tan drew the Krypton scenes.

And about the price, at least it's one extra dollar for a comic 1.5x as long, and that extra length is the actually good co-feature. Marvel would just charge that price and keep it regular length.

Cassie's Silent Armor has ties to Trigon, this was established in the arc before Death of the Family.

I'm not arguing with you on the point, but I did read those issues and I simply do not remember anything significant about Trigon. What was the connection?

This actually leads into one of the problems I had with the issue, but when they visited the runs where Wonder Girl got her armor, Red Robin noted that the imagery or runes or whatever were related to Trigon. And some other stuff I think got brought up. So I was baffled when Red Robin was the one who seemed to have no idea about Trigon.
