Not to mention we are getting Zero Year right now, which is retelling of Batman's year one just in the new52. Not that I hate the story, but they are doing exactly what I knew they would with the relaunch.
The first year I think Snyder and others on GL felt they weren't retelling things. That this was just a continuation of their previous run. It was only after Zero Year did the changes and retelling continue.
Continuity is still fucked up to high heaven. Basically I'm with John Layman's or whomever the hell said it best with current DC continuity: "The stuff you read is still in continuity. Fuck what we say."
Of course this makes things difficult when I like characters like Wally West, Tim Drake, Jade, and Cassandra Cain since they don't freaking exist any longer.
