I never completely kicked the habit of buying at least a few comics per month, but I don't get any satisfaction from it -- and should probably just call it a day. The LCS I go to is almost always sold out of anything I might want to pick up. I have a few titles on a pull list, but could easily drop those.

I was almost there a few years ago.  I was reading DKR Master Race which was on the Doomsday Clock schedule (when we feel like it), Batman Beyond for a promised storyline featuring some of my favorites like OMAC, Atomic Knights and others (which never happened), and Earth 2 (which was supposed to be a stand-alone book), but somehow got enmeshed with 3 huge crossover events.  Then came Rebirth...

Wednesday is my favorite day of the week again.  I currently read 16 monthlies, and 8 minis.  Looking forward to Leviathan.  Gonna give Outsiders, and the Lois and Jimmy minis a chance.  Batman/Superman vol 2 could be awesome.  The only thing Iím not liking much is the lateness of Doomsday Clock.

At this point in the DCU, there is a larger narrative building through several books.  Rebirth/Doomsday Clock is only a part of it.  I believe Scott Snyder is in the middle of deconstructing and rebuilding the DC Omniverse.  Hopefully so we can see characters like Top Ten, Camelot 3000, Thriller, Slash Maraud and more.

OK.  Not sure at all what's happening here, but there's some strange synchronicity going on.  May 29th is the release date for Doomsday Clock #10 and Heroes in Crisis #9.  It's the third anniversary of Rebirth and of Wally West's return to the DCU after his New 52 exile.  For those of you not tracking, Wally was one of the central figures in HiC.  He was also name checked in DC #9 in a conversation between Lois Lane and Lex Luthor.  Evidently, DC #10 is a big reveal in the story involving Wally, Dr. Manhattan, and the history of the DCU.  How HiC #9 plays into this I can only speculate.  Actually I can't because I've no idea. 

And I called HiC months ago.  The whole premise blew up on me when I was asked to believe Harley got the drop on Wally with her hammer.

I've kinda been following HiC on the various sites/boards. Anything with modern Harley is an instant turn off. I don't know if her apparent popularity will have longevity or not, but I can't see it. I'll wait to see if those two books make DC Comics safe to read again.

Been a pretty good comic book day for me. 

First Wally gets his own book:

Then the JSA returns in Justice League:

A whole series of Wally dealing with how he's been tainted isn't for me.  I never thought I'd live in a time that I'm 70 issues into a Barry run I like and I'm not picking up a Wally book.

On the other hand, the JSA will be buckets of win.

At this point Iíve not yet given up on Wally.  No matter how good Barryís run is.  And it is great.  But Iím not sure the premise of Wallyís book is what we think.  Certainly it will be about redemption.  But Flash Forward seems like a hint.  Maybe itís Wally caught up in Hypertime.  Searching for his family, but also straightening out the DCU timeline as only a speedster can.  At any rate, the solicitation is surprisingly vague.  And it sounds better to me than Wally taking over for Rick Flagg as the Suicide Squad field leader.

Itís been three years and two weeks since the start of Rebirth, and the JSA is finally returning after eight years in the wilderness.  And Iím ecstatic about it.

Last week, DC announced that Bendis and Ryan Sook were the creative team selected to bring back Legion. Apparently, the chance to write Legion was the linchpin for Bendis going to DC. Based on the asexual design of Saturn Girl, I'm expecting a lot of modern-day changes -- some for the better, many for the worse.

Dunno what to expect.  I like the Legion but donít consider myself a hard core fan.  The second Levitz run (82-89) is my go to era.  Both before and after is kinda meh to me. 

Having said that, Iíve really enjoyed Bendis at DC so far.  Action, Superman, Young Justice, and Naomi are all solid to very good books.  Donít care for his curated stuff.  IMHO, Wonder Twins and Dial H are awful.  Yet both minis got extended for another six issues so Iím clearly in the minority. 

Iíll definitely give Legion a chance.  The way heís set up Jon (Superboy) Kent to join has been almost masterful.
