What the fuck?

The third weekly series from DC? And it focuses on WW, Supes and Bats? Are these guys not in enough titles?

Sorry. FAIL.

And for any who bring up Spiderman, Marvel didn't actually add any books to the Spider line.

They kept the same number, but simply allowed one story arc to come out a lot faster. I think that's just fine.

I've read most of Countdown (and no, I did not pay for it). And man would that have been a waste of money. If you're going to do a weekly, DC, it better have a bang for the buck. Let's look at countdown. 52 issues comes to about 4 years of stories for another book. Did Countdown have 4 years worth of bang? NO.

Hey, IC.

Do you know how well Countdown is selling? The numbers still looked fairly decent last I checked, which is simply shocking to me.

Plus, my god, how many books do these 3 appear in monthly? Do we really need a weekly with them?

Action
All-Star Superman
Superman
Detective
Batman
All-Star Batman
Wonder Woman
JLA
The Outsiders

Plus minis and others I can't think of. That's ridiculous.

Like we discussed briefly in another thread, DC is just an out of control mess right now. I really hope that "FINAL" crisis ties things up once and for all. I know I know, wishful thinking, but hey can't I dream? sheesh. :)

I love All Star Supes. It's the only Superman book I get. I just dropped JLA. I just couldn't take it anymore.

I know what you mean. I don't want to complain about JLA, but I just couldn't read it anymore. There are so many other books that I would like to support. I don't blame the creative team. I think the team has just been forced by editorial mandate to deal with one crossover after another.

It didn't feel like a JLA book. I will keep tabs on it, and if it picks up, I'll come back.

Agreed. Or at least the DCU as a whole. This is why I liked 52.

You can still have the Trinity make appearance in the book to boost sales, but those three already dominate DC's books.

It would be like putting Wolverine and Spiderman in the same book. Oh....right...
