    it was a few years back and i prob came off as a dick in that thread. I was young. i kinda got over it until a couple years later i met a high profile creator and i told him my screen name and the first thing out of his mouth is "oh the guy Gail Simone tried to get banned" :wow:

    So i made him tell me the whole story.

    Looks like Batman, Inc. and Batman: Dark Knight are definitely $3.99 books w/o bonus content. I'll be skipping those for sure then. Since Dick will be the star in Detective Comics, I'm a little more on the no side, but I'm still waiting for the American Vampire trade to make a more final judgment.

    Just checked some scans. Very poor handling of Bruce there. I'm really fed up of writers who don't understand Bruce Wayne. They actually think he's a bad person.

    Well, if I can manage not to pick up B&R in singles, I think I can manage the same for Inc. okay. :p

    i just dropped a few books to make room for the new batman ones.

    officially took of red robin, batgirl, supergirl and action comics. (i'll get action in TPB form when the luthor story is done. )

    I'm 18 and just today secured employment. But i'm not dropping anything. I'm getting all the books i read until they annoy me enough to be dropped. And i'm gettin new titles.

    Sucks to be my bank balance i guess.

    i've been meaning to drop these for a while but since they are on my pull list i end up buying them so i wont look like a *****e bag.

    I havn't been reading them at all. I only have supergirl because i was enjoying the new krypton stuff, but stopped reading after it ended. bargirl has nice covers that attracted me into buying them but the storys suck, and i can't say i actually care for red robin.

    Action comics was meh for me. i don't care enough for luthor or death's return.

    Gail seems to have a very backhanded way of writing Bruce. She dosent embarass him like johns does, but it seems like her preferred characters always get the upperhand

    Is one dollar more in the pricetag gonna stop you guys from buying Inc? You re buying Birds of Prey and other mediocre books, and you re not gonna get the main batbook which btw is written by Morrison?

    Well, for one, I don't consider anything I buy 'mediocre', otherwise I wouldn't be buying it. BOP hasn't been as good as I hoped upon its return, but I've enjoyed enough to warrant keeping track for at least another arc.

    Secondly, financially speaking it's not that huge, but I'm basically committed to fighting the price gouging happening right until it isn't an option to do so. One of the main reasons I didn't pick up any of Marvel's Avengers books, for example. I'll admit, if I'm loving something enough or if I'm really interested in something, I would probably break that, but for this, I'm not really. I'll just wait for the trades, like I ultimately decided to do for B&R (which I will pick up at some point).

    Lix doesn't, but I actually like Morrison a lot...

    I haven't been as high on his Batman run as everyone else seems to be, but generally speaking, I like him.

    I can understand that. His run does kinda slow down for me around the Black glove arc....

    Question: Am I the only one who'd like to see Bruce and Zatanna together at some point? Since Bruce is going into full blown superhero territory, it would be the perfect time to see a relationship between these two....

    i doubt you're the only one. i'd be opposed to it though, because it would most likely be written by dini and i hate when he writes those two together.
