    Basically, this is a thread where you can discuss all things comics, be it news, interviews with writers, recent comics and older ones etc. The discussion does not just have to be related to DC. News, interviews and comics, amongst other things, from other companies such as Marvel can be discussed too.

    I do not expect much activity in this thread and it will probably just be me talking to myself in here most of the time, before I eventually get tired of this thread and move onto something else, but I just thought that it would be good if a thread like this existed. Sometimes you read an old comic and want to make a post about it, but there is no thread where it would be relevant to talk about.

    I'll drop in and contribute if I have something to say.

    I'll start off with a little ranting of how DC handled the release of crossovers in trade form during the New 52 era. Very annoying on how they put them together.

    I'd like a thread like this in the misc. comics section if you're up for it.

    What was it about how they were put together that annoyed you?

    I doubt a there will be much activity in a thread there. There isn't even that much activity in the DC comics section generally, but a lot more happens here than in the Misc Comics Section. If you want, I will make a thread like this there, or do you want to make it? I will gladly contribute to it too. With that said, it is ok to talk about Marvel and other companies in this thread.

    An example would be the Godhead crossover. The options are pick up the separate trades that include all issues of the the crossover (not in order obviously) plus the final few issues of New Guardians, GLC, Red Lanterns and some in between issues of Green Lantern and Sinestro. Plus each separate trade will include a copy of the same finale issue, so I would end up paying for the same issue multiple times.

    The other option is to pick up the trade that colllects the issues in order but misses out on those in-between issues of the titles that aren't collected in the following tpb. Now I'm having to hunt them down.

    From what I seen in the upcoming tpb releases from the Rebirth titles, it seems DC fixed this issue.

    If it's okay to talk about all companies here, then another thread isn't necessary.

    I will read those later. I just want DC to get their continuity back Pre-New 52 and mix it with New 52 and just leave it alone. No more reboots please!

    I don't like how some of the good stuff in the new 52 like Batman is lumped in with the poor stuff. Things like him having so many side-kicks in such a short period of time which happened as a result of Flashpoint is obviously silly, but the stories were very good IMO.

    Yeah, I forgot about that. In my head, I kind of made my own continuity and ignored that. I guess we'll see what happens as Rebirth continues on. They have a lot of fixing to do and questions to answer, but I'll wait and see.

    Nice. I have been re-reading a lot of old Flash comics recently, and I still find them to be enjoyable. The ones I have been enjoying the most are "The Return of Barry Allen" from Waid's run and Geoff Johns "Rebirth" from 2009. I have been reading comics from Bates run too, and while I think they are good, I enjoyed the two stories that I mentioned earlier more.

    What I'm reading right now...Too many to list. I've got piles of trades and floppies on my bedroom floor and I kind of just grab a stack and go sit on the toilet. When I finish one I'll put the tpb on my bookshelf (which is low on space btw) and floppies in a long box.

    After his stellar work on Batman, I would say he has earned the honour and privilege :o.

    The JLI run from the 80's is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

    Giffen's JLI is terrific! The TPB's stopped at 6 volumes, though, which is a huge disappointment.

    I was pretty luke warm on Tom King's "I Am Gotham" Batman arc. "Monster Men" was clearly an editorial mandate and was overall pretty dumb. But, "I Am Suicide" is finally the Tom King I've been expecting from him on Batman. I hope he keeps that up. If anyone hasn't read his run on The Vision, it might be one of the best books of 2016. Seriously. It's crazy good. Also, check out his Sheriff of Babylon.

    Next up for me is Head Lopper by Andrew McClean from Image. Looks amazing, and I've heard great things.

    Good to hear it's improving. I switched back to a trade waiter after I couldn't keep up with the floppies anymore. I read the first few issues of Tom King's Batman and they were pretty bad. Detective on the other hand was very entertaining.
