    I really liked Dick’s turn as Batman. The period where he led the JLA was terrific. I found that lineup (Jesse Quick, Supergirl, Starman, Donna Troy, and Congorilla, with Dick as Batman) was lightning in a bottle and they had great stories with strong villains like Eclipso and the Crime Syndicate. I also agree that the dynamic between Dick and Damien was absolutely perfect.

    I'm not much of a Batman fan but I found this most enjoyable. I would have read more Batman if they stuck with that longer.

    Unlikely because he would totally milk it and make sure people know it is him.
    The guys Ego is way too big to be the mystery man. XD

    Writer with an acclaimed series, art looks nice. I am cautiously optimistic...

    Co-creator and co-writer of Lumberjanes... Should be good I reckon.

    Do we know anything bout this? Series? Mini-series? Maybe a short story for the annual issue for Pride Month?

    I can't find an original source to see if it's reliable, but I see a couple tweets saying that it's some kind of digital-first series, but nothing on length.

    I can't see it. A quick search online shows there were similar rumours a year ago.

    Hasn't DC been supposedly closing for 2 years now? I can see a change in them printing comics soon but just outright selling printing rights to characters? Not impossible but seems a stretch.

    But if they do, Marvel buy it all up I want those damn crossovers reprinted!

    Hopefully there would not be a WWE/WCW scenario whereby Marvel puts over their legacy characters at the expense of DCs characters. Lol.

    Does Marvel have a Vince McMahon?

    I read an article on another site that made the statement that Superboy Prime is generally hated by comics fans.

    I’m curious as to everyone’s thoughts. Would you agree with that statement?

    Personally, he is my favorite DC villain.

    I know a lot of people don't like his slaughter of the Titans in Infinite Crisis, and his punching the 'walls of reality' gets a lot of stick, but I wouldn't have said that I've noticed he's hated.

    Every year according to rumors, despite making record numbers.
    But the last 2 years the "DC is closing" rumor sounds like copy and paste work.
    As if every few months the people literally copy the old rumor and try to sell it as new.

    Yeah, cant say i noticed a lot of more extreme negativity towards him.
    I like the character, he is interesting in terms of the idea.
