So here’s what I’m going to be buying:
Action Comics by Grant Morrison & Rags Morales
Superman by George Pérez
Wonder Woman by Brian Azzarello & Cliff Chiang
Batman by Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo
Batman Inc by Grant Morrison & Chris Burnham
Batwoman by JH Williams III, W Haden Blackman & Amy Reeder
Justice League by Geoff Johns & Jim Lee
Green Lantern by Geoff Johns & Doug Mahnke
Aquaman by Geoff Johns & Ivan Reis
Flash by Brian Buccellato & Francis Manapul
Stormwatch by Paul Cornell & Miguel Sepulveda
Demon Knights by Paul Cornell & Diogenes Neves
Swamp Thing by Scott Snyder & Yanick Paquette
American Vampire by Scott Snyder & Rafael Albuquerque
I’ve got to say this is the biggest haul of DC books for me in many years (at least 20). Thing is though I don’t think it’ll stay stable for very long. Both Cornell books will be cancelled within 18 months (unless Stormwatch in particular really pushes boundaries), Batman Inc will have delays (as will Justice League), and I can’t see Johns & Reis staying on Aquaman for more than a year or so, but the Snyder books are a guaranteed awesome read, Batwoman looks likely to be free to push boundaries and if the creative team on Wonder Woman get it right that book could be very interesting indeed.
The risk of course is that this is all a gimmick. Are the executives at Time Warner (DC’s parent company) really prepared for Superman to look like that for good? Is this a follow on change from Flashpoint which, Heroes Reborn/Return stylee will just get reset after a year or so? They say ‘no’ but I’m not sure.
