I still may read the first issue of MoS v 2 #1.  Not optimistic though.

And yeah, JLA by Snyder and company is a pure win after Metal.

The "Everything you know is wrong" and reset of a status quo I was enjoying approach are a real turn off.


And so soon after Rebirth? They will probably gain Bendis fans and the cost of losing everyone else. No thanks!

https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/05/21/joelle-jones-redesigns-catwoman/

I never liked the utilitarian look of Catwoman's current outfit. Missed the purple, missed the long hair -- hated the goggles. So Catwoman is getting a new ongoing and a new outfit designed by Joelle Jones. It's not a huge departure from the previous. Looks more shiny black than dull grey -- so that's a positive. Honestly, she often looked more like Mousewoman to me in that drab grey getup.

I may give this a try -- for a few issues anyway.

Agree totally.  Her new look isn't really all that different.  She's still fairly blah. 

Truthfully, I've never really cared for Nightwing's post Mullet look either.  Too much black.  No pizzazz.

I'll try for an issue.  See what's what. 

As to the costume, she is (was?) a thief.  Black and sleek only makes sense.

Realistically, her costume makes perfect sense.  But I don't want too much realism in costumes.  My fave look for her was the purple and black Balent design.  Super sexy!  Heck....I even really liked her gray and black Batman the Animated Series duds.

There's a reason that I love the costumes of Deathstroke, Taskmaster, Adrian Chase Vigilante, Captain America, and Count Nefaria.  I love those garish designs and the splashes of color.  That stuff looks great in comics!  Solid black is pretty dull.

Again, that's just my opinion.

To paraphrase Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross, "Let's talk about something important".

Justice League #1:

I do understand that a lot of you don't bother with modern comics.  Of those who do, some of you seem to avoid DC like a psycho ex with a machete collection.  And it hurts my heart because some DC books are so good now they'd make you gasp. 

Justice League is among them.  #1 came out Wed.  All you need to know is that Scott Snyder is lead writer.  Forget all the rest.  Issue #1 is a lot of setup.  But it's a good thing.  This actually has a shot at rivaling my all time favorite Justice League run back when Morrison wrote it, now 20 years ago.  Remember the Hyper Clan?  This has the potential.  Snyder hasn't let me down yet.

Agreed.  I haven't been this tingly about a JL book since early Morrison.  It is exactly what I needed.

Cheung would be the only reason I'd even consider picking up JL #1.  Oh, I guess I liked Snyder well enough on nu 52 Swamp Thing -- i think he wrote the first arc. But METAL really failed to click with me. But I'll admit --- modern comics, with few exceptions, really aren't for me.

So Geoff Johns resigns both of his corporate jobs.  Announces the formation of a production company for movies and TV and announces a Shazam comic, the Three Jokers comic with Fabrok, and his own imprint like Young Animals.  Seems he wants to write more.

JLA #1 was pretty good stuff. Feels like a return to the classics with a modern twist. Cheung's art is hit and miss. All his faces look the same.

I added Hawkman to my pull list (not sure how long that list will still be around). Plastic Man looked worth checking out, but I've never been especially fond of the character. I will pick up Justice League if there is a copy left. Diversity in faces has always been a problem with Cheung, but the same could be said of many artists back in the day.
