You will.

And, SPOILER for you, without giving away too much...


The first two issues are chock full of Elongated Man and Booster Gold.

Renee Montoya and the Question are featured, too.

I like it.

I like the new directions for Booster Gold and the Question.

I don't like the constant number-referencing and 'clues everywhere' thing though, it feels like the book is trying too hard, and I feel the search for numbers will overtake the character moments in fans eyes, knowing how we get.

I'm also worried about cliffhangers, they can't really do them unless they happen at midnight on sunday.

But other than that, I like it.

And the website is nice too.

It's not doing much for me at the moment. But because I'm not picking up nearly as many titles each week as I used to, I have the financial space to give it a little bit more of a chance.

I'm really digging it. I think part of the problem that some people have is that it doesn't read like a "normal" montly book, but is instead paced and scripted to follow a slower, more "decompressed" story, because, really, a weekly really is the time and place for decompressed story-telling.

I'm enjoying it so far. Question and Montoya team-up looks to be fun. Among, lots of other stuff!

I think I might be the only person waiting for the trade on this. I was at the shop this weekend and almost picked it up, but they didn't have #1.

I guess it's ok. I'll probably sitck around for a couple more issues, but comic spending is starting to become an issue again. It's only a few dollars a week, but so's the cost of dry-cleaning, cat litter, baby food, etc. 52 has been interesting, but it's an awfully big commitment for someone trying to be just a casual comic-reader.

I hated issue #3. I hate retcons, even of shitty plot lines.
