^ Yeah, I think the only reason I've come around to this suit a bit is because... most artists just seem to ignore a lot of the changes. The cowl isn't supposed to have a nose (just go straight down the the DKR armoured helmet) but everyone ignores that. The cape is supposed to be purple on the inside, but either everyone ignores that of makes it so dark and subtle that it may as well not be there etc.
 
I'm also digging the new Batsuit, depending on how it's drawn.

I have to say, I'm really enjoying Rebirth thus far, with my favorite titles being Batman, Superman, Detective Comics, Justice League, The Flash, and All-Star Batman (based on the awesome first issue).

I've also been trying to keep up with virtually everything else, but it's pretty tough. I just picked up Cyborg and haven't read it yet, but also following Action Comics, Deathstroke, Wonder Woman, Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps, Aquaman, Titans, and Nightwing.

Looking forward to Batman Beyond Rebirth when it starts up next month.
 
looking forward to Raven next week and Teen Titans the following week.

The purple cape is rad.
 
It's kinda staggering how many DC titles Rebirth has got me picking up. I went from 0 to 15+ lol

Loving the Aquaman rebirth the most right now. excited for Batman Beyond and Teen Titans.
 
I feel dumb asking this, but...is the cast of heroes in Titans GO the same as the ones seen in Young Justice?
 
About Green Arrow...a few issues back he was saying something about the League seeing him as weak and useless. This was when he was being confronted by the police, I think right after Diggle attacked him. What's that all about? And, is that why GA hasn't been part of the JL since the dawn of the new 52?
 
Aquaman has been an incredible title. Best by a mile. Seeing him go toe to toe with Superman telling him he's tired of being the black sheep of the JL was badass. And I can't wait to see what happens with Manta.
 
How has Suicide Squad Rebirth been? Haven't had any interest in it, but might have to get on board soon with Justice League vs. Suicide Squad coming up.

There was an issue of New 52 Justice League (I think it was issue 7) where Green Arrow kept showing up to assist the League but they turned him down because at the time he was pretty much just a swashbuckling rich boy. Then Steve Trevor offered him a position on the ARGUS' JLA. He hasn't really encountered them since Lemire and Percy brought him back to a more serious and competent character.

Thanks! So does that mean, as of Rebirth, he's on at least shaky ground with the League?

Yep. They also went against each other in Trinity War. He and Aquaman also had an encounter on the island that didn't turn out well for either of them, but it never got elaborated on.

Same! I'm excited to learn more about this story.
 
I'm very confused with All-Star Batman and Deathstroke's stories. I feel like there are multiple stories occurring at once while I'm reading them and I'm having a hard time following them.

Deathstroke is split up into past and present vinettes that piece together for a then and now story. That's what the title cards are for. Deathstroke is structured in a way that you have to read it twice at least to get the "whole" picture and it really helps if you read the earlier issues. It's a very cerebral book. That and the tone and bits of sardonic humor is what makes it so great IMO.
 
This was a very strong week for Rebirth.

Wonder Woman, Deathstroke, and the Flash being the stand outs.

It was also the best week for both Green Lantern books so far. Action Comics and New-Superman were really good. Jimenez is killing the art on Superwoman.

I still need read through Sucide Squad and Red Hood.

I dropped Suicide Squad, mostly due to budgets and the whole back-up story situation, but am interested to know if anyone actually got killed off this week like the last issue promised...
 
I'm a few months behind on Detective, but after hearing about what happened this last issue, I'll probably pick up what I'm missing tonight.
