John, Swampy, Zee, Deadman, and Etrigan in the Rebirth Cast Promo pic.

For whatever reason, John's still wearing the peacoat in this, apparently the artist did not get the memo that the trenchcoat is back unless Olivier and Moritat are playing a very cruel game of bait and switch.

One is actually Killer Croc, from Suicide Squad. Probably a Jim Lee redesign, to explain why he looks so off!

I read spoilers on the internet about the DC:Rebirth Special that was released yesterday. Apparently, it's meant to explain away the New 52, although if this Rebirth is actually a return to the old post-Crisis DC Universe or not doesn't seem to be explained very clearly in the pages. The whole Convergence year seems to have been ignored, or maybe it was, I'm not sure. However, the big surprise was the identity of the characters who are behind the New 52 happening. Apparently, it was a grand conspiracy, that only Wally West was able to remember the truth, about the old DC Universe. Characters who were not supposed to be part of the DC Universe. I don't want to give away the game....but let's just say that Alan Moore is probably going to be pissed.
OK, I can't resist. I have to give it away. No more tiptoeing. That's right....The Scooby Apocalypse comic is going to plan a much larger role in the DC Universe! t's bee Scooby and the gang all along! Alan Moore's favourite cartoon as a child, ruined!

Thanks. It's hard to tell two huge looming green blobs with funny mouths apart when they're lurking at the back of a drawing...

Alan Moore's favourite cartoon as a child? When did Daphne or Thelma ever get raped? I must have missed those ones...[/Grant Morrison]

Daphne got raped....of her dignity....in a new Scooby Doo movie!

I notice that's a cartoon, rather than expecting Sarah Michelle Gellar to gain a few dress sizes...

Hey! What did Marvel have to do with this? Yes, Civil War II sucks, but they publish a lot of really good books.

Dog-Sarah Michelle Gellar as a size 8?! Heaven forbid! Average women wear a size 8, not someone like her! She doesn't pay 3 million dollars to specialists in order so that someone can mistakenly think that she's average!

I bet. But their universe is a bit convoluted with all of the Universes merging that I have no idea what is up anymore and I have no desire to sort through any of it.

And it seems to have reached a point now where you can't read anything they publish without it getting dragged into a shitload of crossovers and universe wide metabullshit, generally to the story's detriment.

That's really not true anymore. It really hasn't been the case since during the House of M and original Civil War days.
Yes, there was Secret Wars, but that was pretty much every ongoing title on hiatus for six months. The event hasn't even been referenced directly since it ended, and the series really accomolished zero. For all intents and purposes, the Marvel Universe is the exact same as pre-Secret Wars. If you skipped Secret Wars, you basically missed nothing.

Marvel barely cares about continuity anymore, and hasn't really since Axel Alonso took over as editor-in-chief.
Yes, certain titles are going to be hijacked for a few months by Civil War 2, but most of those titles aren't Marvel's best books anyway, so it doesn't really matter. There are only a few books that are going to directly tie-in with Civil War, out of about 80 total books that Marvel publish each month now.
It really isn't that big of a deal. You can read most of Marvel's best titles without needing to pick up any cross-over titles.

You're aware that they're dragging Hercules into that heap of shit?

Hercules was already cancelled. It's being brought back specifically for Civil War II. So, it doesn't really matter what they do now. Abnett is on his way to DC. No, I'm not sure if it's for an exclusive contract, but I don't believe Abnett is planning on doing any further work for Marvel afterwards.
The one book that is most likely to be hurt by the cross-over is Sam Wilson: Captain America.
