  1. Thus the blame lies on the doorsteps of Warner and its AT&T overlords
  2. And bang goes what little goodwill WB/AT&T ever gained from the DCU stream. Now folks will worry about Doom Patrol's fate because of this. Good luck on reclaiming the customers they just lost from this choice.
  3. OH, I do hope so. Anything to get him and our John away from the CW Ghetto
  4. Not so much that, but one person credited as a EP had been pushing Cyborg for nearly a decade: Geoff Johns. Why I single him out? Well, he does have a strong preference for what he considers his era of comics and entertainment (i.e. The Superfriends era 1973-1986) hence why he, along with the 'stasche when devising thr Nee 52 snatched him and abolished his Titans history while in turn screwing over Martian Manhunter out of the founding member role in the JLA. Another reason for why this show is due to the failure of the Snyder flavored DCEU (though semi salvaged by both Wonder Woman and Aquaman) along with the fact that the Cyborg of the New 52 era isn't of interest; only there because Johns made him 1 of the 3 mother boxes of Apokolips. Plus given how little the character (& actor Ray Fisher) was given plus the two cancelled solo series within the last 4 years, the planned movie signposted for 2020 is pretty much dead and buried. But yeah, I got to side with Christian on this. There is Joshua and Tempest but considering who's name has been tied to every DC project since The Green Lantern movie to here, of course "we need our diversity brownie points even though the tide will reverse this corporate hollow trend in the 2020s"
  5. Gonna have to agree with Christian. Hell, we've not even seen Tefé in the decade since Diggle and Dysart and she like Gemma (the real one as we last saw her under Carey and Mina) buggered of to the same Waffle pocket universe Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain were hiding in soon as DiDio and Johns got their grubby hands on our John
  6. Ok, so having read this issue while in route to work, it does have something going for it* even for a now 3 part fill in far as introductions go. Seely got our John's voice on point and Merino's art feels right back at where we ought to have been after Diggle as opposed to what we ended up getting 8 years ago around this time. *Said this about Oliver but we been deep throated by Djinn and a bride of a Elemental who's now Blue!Lady Jane
  7. Finally read the two. Its Denise Mina all over again except Djinn is the new Empathy. The arc should've been capped off at #6 then different story would've took its place. That plus the Book plot thread of Lapdogs and Englishmen molded into one giant muddle As for the missing Abby, that other plot thread would've bern more investing had the DiDiot greenlit a Swamp Thing: Rebirth title so that thread csn conclude there.
  8. And that couldn't be Mako from Diggle's run WHY, Simon??
  9. Turkish Tony's* remembers.... *Pepperidge Farm's taken
  10. But on Oliver: Like Denise Mina a decade before, he got the voice and swagger of our John but not the story. For Mina, it was the Third Place & for Oliver, its the Djinn. Which is a pity even more since he's one of us. Credit where credits due,at least Johns and DiDio didn't hijack the run for their "All the bad stuff you dislike is all Alan Moore's fault (even though we're the real monsters)!!" campaign
  11. 6 The Marj update was interesting though I assumed the compound would still be aound unless The Shadow Dog wiped them out save for her, Merc, Zed and Errol. Missing Moritat but with they could keep Pia around more as her art is better than what's coming in Febuary
  12. *sigh* And just like that Cartoon Network is officially dead to me
  13. If you're saying what I think you're saying here, I find it difficult to give DC a hard time over it. Expecting them to drop an issue that Moore still makes a point of whining about in every interview he does over a quarter of a century later seems a bit like playing favourites to me. Least he doesn't whine through his writing (I'm looking at you, Geoff Johns)
  14. Think they should've gotten the artist who did the Future's End one-ahot from two volumes before. Tan's isn't a good fit
  15. The Swamp Thing plot would be better suited to another volume for the Bog God otherwise this is just another episode of "DC bashes Alan Moore* while neutering his successors (sans Milligan) in being the caretakers of our John *aka throw the very comic that would saw the Charlton comic heroes in the very roles their expies are apart of under the bus while giving the very worst of early 90s business practices a pass because "STFU and Batman"
  16. I'll need for the WB to stop trying to make our John in a JL variant happen; It NOT happening; didn't in 2011, why now???. If you want a Dr Strange type then use Fate (ANY of them, especially the Jared Stevens version)
  17. *pours Smirnoff Screwdriver out on the ground* Vale, Steve
  18. Two episodes in and Misty's actress is my new celeb crush
  19. I noticed the wrinkles too. She's still our Clarice but with some kind of age like whatevertheshit going on. Now Oliver can wheel out either Dani, Angie, or Kev to round off the character return mambo and top it off with the return of Cheryl and Gemma (with Tony staying dead in this continuity). Oh, and Tefé. I mean why not since the tree tat and how John got it via Swampy's maintained so her existence is bound to pop up
