    The newest issue of Batwoman wasn't my cup of tea either, and I agree that the missing children plot has been dragged out way too long. My interest in the title comes and goes and I tend to find my favorite portions are not dealing with the missing children story. I like the villains (well, the Weeping Lady and Mary) and I like the whole Flamebird thing and Kate's training in issue 0, but the core story bores me. This Wonder Woman thing does even less.

    I'm hanging on because I do enjoy the title but it's slipping down my buy list fairly quickly.

    It's still my favourite comic book from either DC or Marvel right now :)

    Sorry your not enjoying the Medusa plotline Hobbit. I be loving it personally but eitger way this arc wraps up the Medusa plotline and a new one will be starting in the fourth arc so the whole plotline with Kate trying to get the kidnapped victims back from Medusa and stop her plans will be resolved in this arc :)

    I like the rogues gallery Williams is giving Kate too. Bloody Mary, the new version of Killer Croc, Maro and the Hook are neat :up:

    Saga is pretty neat :up:

    But unless it suddenly stars a bad ass lesbian hero as its main character its not going to be able to replace Batwoman as my number one favouritest comic book of all time

    It's definitely on my regular buy list though I be enjoying it

    Sword of Sorcery was pretty fab this week

    I'm totally shipping Amethyst with that kick ass archer princess after this issue. I'd loves it if Christy Marx has those two get together. Amethyst having a fab lesbian archer girlfriend would make me :hrt: her even more

    Also Flash was fun on a bun this week. Rogues vs evil gorillas

    Go buy it now all of you :up:

    Jeff Lemire on Green Arrow is a must for me. I stopped reading the book around issue 10 because it got boring, but this looks fantastic.

    They have gone through so many writers on GA, I feel like they should just start it over at #1 again

    i would consider picking up GA again with him as the writer. animal man has been awesome and i love GA, but his relaunch has sucked.

    also, why even bother putting out titles like Vibe and Katana when they are so obviously going to be canceled. seriously though? Vibe? Katana?

    The only thing that gives me pause with a Lemire GA series is that Young Ollie kinda, well, sucks. He always has. And he problably always will. It's always been that pompous, hardened with age bastard Ollie that makes for the best stories.

    That said, if anyone can make a Young Ollie worthwhile, it would definitely be Lemire.

    If memory serves, Andrew Kreisberg is a horrible writer too.

    I've been waiting for another solid Green Arrow volume for about 5 to 6 years now. I hope that Lemire is the one that could come through because at one point it was one of the DC books I used to buy most often. From Ollie to Connor then back to Ollie again. Now I don't even look at the cover at the comic book store. Him name checking Mike Grell's run which is what made me a fan of the character in the first place seems like a good sign.

    I wanted to buy Green Arrow but just didn't like the drastic shift in character post-52. But Lemire as wowed me on Justice League Dark so I might give this a shot. I've always liked the character, maybe I can grow to like young GA.

    I don't think I'd even bother with Green Arrow until Ollie has a Van Dyke again. It's like Superman without the spit-curl or Batman without ears. :o
