    I'll pass this up, I'm tired of the whole weekly gimmick. i rather have busiek and rags morales do a graphic novel on the trinity.

    I can't believe they're doing another weekly. :dry:

    I was on board all the way for 52, but Countdown wore on me after about 2 months. I don't see myself signing up for this, although I love interaction between the Trinity. Besides, as good as it sounds, I take what DiDio says and undercut it by about 40% in expectation ...because it's DiDio. :batty: :super: :ww:

    I never liked Bagley's art, but Busiek and Carlin are two old school professionists of the craft.
    I would buy it for a couple of months then decide what to do.

    I'll give it a shot, just like I gave Countdown a shot. If it sucks as much as Countdown I'll drop it pretty quickly, probably after a month or two.

    12 pages per week seems like a lot even for Bagley, though. I hope his art doesn't look super-****ty because he's rushing.

    Creative team sounds good to me. I'll give it a shot.

    I'm happy that this spine of the DCU idea has gone, that ruined Countdown (and a lot of other titles) a lot.

    I'm down for this. I loved 52. Havent read Countdown, but I havent heard very many good things.
    But this sounds great because a. The cast. 52 featured everyone except the big three, this is just the opposite.
    and
    b. Busiek and Bagley are awesome.

    The cast is actually one problem I think I may have with the book. We already see these characters every week, just about, between their own titles, JLA, JLA Classified, and guest appearances. Do we really need a weekly series devoted to them?

    I'm glad they are anouncing it this early. Seems like countdown was announced just a week before 52 ended.

    I'm kind of wondering if this series will be devoted, at least in part, to dealing with the fallout from Final Crisis.

    I'm 'wait and see' on this. I made the mistake of buying more than one issue of Countdown, I won't be fooled again. The weekly comic idea needs to be re-looked at. 52 was an amazing accomplishment, I think they should have ended the weekly thing there.

    That said, the creative team for this looks to be awesome, so I dunno.

    Besides, there's the fallacy of throwing the baby out with the bathwater. DC has pretty much perfected the weekly format at this point, and that wasn't the problem with Countdown. And books like Messiah Complex and even...sigh...Brand New Day shows that it's totally a workable, fresh endeavor.

    I'm actually excited now for WonderCon in two weeks. Before these announcements, all I could look forward to was me trying not to murder DiDio at the first opportunity. You know, all those panelists are totally unprotected up there. Something could happen. I'm just saying.
