See, I'm starting to eye DC suspiciously for the same reason. All of these rumblings of "Trinity War" have me nervous that the DCU will just turn into one big crossover. Couple that with the out-of-nowhere creative team changes, and I find myself buying more Image, Dark Horse, Valiant, and Monkeybrain as the days go on.
Mmm yes. DC have been doing small crossovers which I haven't found offensive (Animal Man/Swamp Thing, Aquaman/JL eg) as I buy those titles anyway & they don't require 6 or 7 extra comics a month. Even 'Night of the Owls' was done it such a way that it read perfectly fine with just the core Batman title.
As for Trinity War, we'll have to wait & see.
I'm already a big fan of Dynamite's output & recommendations from the Outhouse with books like Saga, Sixth Gun, Unwritten & Fatale have got me thinking seriously about looking elsewhere. Would like to get into Valiant but feel like I've missed the boat unless I want to start buying trades.
