Huh. Well I was planning on dropping the book because I thought it was just becoming a Batman Team-Up, but now I'm interested. I like that the Batman and... title is a 5-issue arc going through the stages of grief, like Fallen Son was for Captain America. And Tomasi and Gleason doing an epic is awesome. I guess it's back on my buy list.

I'm glad that Justice League Unlimited is getting a new writer. The continuity in that story was a complete and utter mess.

Damn. Good thing I'm not reading that. I know Green Lantern is about to have a $7.99 issue as well for Johns' final issue.

It's an extra long issue because it's the 900th issue. It's 80 pages this time.

NO! Are you serious?! That just freaking ticks me off. I've bought every issue of his run, but I might just skim that at the shop.

Great example of DC trying to have it both ways here. Let's pretend we're starting over, but still cash in on anniversary issues.

This makes me wonder what Action Comics will do for it's 1000th issue. Should be some time next year right?

Are you serious? He deserves an extra sized send-off and you're complaining because he gets one, even though you bought everything else he has written? It's only $7.99, hell just pirate it and buy it a month later, but you should still buy it.

Anyway, is Kathy Kane returning in Batman Inc?

We dont' know what it will be about. It makes me confident it could be about Damian in some way...

Anyway, I've been waiting for Tomasi to be able to tell his own incredible story for a while. He has been brilliant on B&R, but most of the time, he had to deal with what was going on in Inc and Batman. This time, he will be able to prove himself with a story of his own, and I'm sure it will be amazing.

Maybe I will pick that one up. My Green Lantern future is in jeopardy, depending on how the new creative team is.

I have a strict "comics ain't worth that much" policy. And just because Johns was on the title for as long as he was, doesn't mean he deserves to write an $8 comic. If I buy this comic then I have to drop another title for that month. I'd rather not drop an issue of a title I plan to continue with after that month for a title I don't plan on continuing with after that month.

And I do plan on buying it, just cheaper, later. But knowing me, I'll cave and buy it and having bought it, it'll ruin any enjoyment I might have gotten from the issue. I get ticked off when I buy a $5 comic. $8 for a title that's at least 3 years past its prime and that I've nearly dropped several times as it is, is not going to do me any favors.

I can understand that. I do think a 80 pages special can be worth it though, if only because most of the time the art in those issues is great.

Yeah, I would say it probably peaked, for me, around the time of Blackest Night.

Exactly. It peaked with Blackest Night and then fell big time during Brightest Day. I picked up with the New 52 but dropped again when Simon Baz was introduced. Now it's just sorta floating in mediocrity.

Yeah, at this point, I am basically reading out of loyalty, and my comic budget is too small to do that.

The Bane story in 'tec 900 is awesome! And I'm so glad they finally changed the design on him to a better one http://i.imgur.com/NbK9Xeh.jpg <--- SPOILER

I don't like it, it's an ugly TDKR/AC mashup.
