    Oh erm, how, unremarkable.

    I guess the Graysons, Frankenstein and Aquaman ones might be nice.

    This really is going to be incredibly boring.

    Well, at least I'll be saving some money thanks to this event.

    15 mini-series?! Why? Why do all of these events have to have so many tie-ins? Can they not just leave it at one?

    At least it might mean that it won't bleed into ongoings.

    There have been theories that these miniseries will replace various ongoings for a short time.

    I hope Wonder Woman doesn't go through another time change for her ongoing. Even though this series is sounding more and more like Marvel's HOM and AOA.

    The Blackest Night tie-ins didn't do that, so i really don't see the point for these either.

    People are actually comparing this to Age of Apocalypse. The ongoings might reflect some sort of alternate reality.

    I believe this is what we in the know consider "premature ejaculation."

    Well, okay then. Kind of overusing, and kind of misusing, the Whatever Happened to...? title, but you know, whatever.

    <_<

    I don't know, may check out some of those if I bother with the event.

    >_>

    Isn't that basically like the worst of both worlds?

    In some ways, I would say so, but in some other ways not so much. You may miss out on three months of a series, which would suck, but at least you don't have to sit through three months of a (most likely) useless tie-in to an event you may not be reading. If you are reading, just business as usual.

    Also, is that Wonder Woman at the opposite end? I can't tell.

    What? No. No "business as usual." You're sitting on your hands for 3 months while the comic(s) you read have been replaced by the tie-in(s) to the event you're not interested in. :huh:

    I meant if you're reading the event, it's business as usual. You just pick up that in place of the monthly for those three installment.

    Oh, well yeah, but I don't care about the people who are reading the event. :oldrazz:

    You can drop that rough and gruff librarian grit here, Corp. We all know you really have a heart of gold.

    Heh, coincidentally, I just directed our security guard to tell some people to stop singing in the library. They got all dejected and it warmed my heart a bit. :)

    Yeah, but you only did it because that group of misguided ghetto youth moved in on them and saw trouble brewing, while donating a third of your paycheck to charity via Paypal and also listening to She & Him on your iPod simultaneously.

    Lies. I did it because even though libraries are no longer the silent refuges they once were thanks to the universally accepted encroachment of cell phones into every second of our daily lives, you're still supposed to be somewhat quiet so your fellow students can get work done around here. Also, I don't donate anything but my blood, and just what the f*** is wrong with liking She & Him? :cmad:

    There's nothing wrong with She & Him, at all. But it's a sign of the sweetest and sentimentalist of hearts, in other words....

    Softies.

    Even the hardest-boiled egg has a soft and delicious interior.

    But that doesn't mean it won't still chip off a piece of its own shell and stab you in the face with it. :dry:
