Yeah, I found myself actually rather pleased with it. I did notice the sacrificial woman in the one scene was basically Selina, which has me wondering of the future of the pair post-Metal (I don't read the main Batman series, by the way).

As for Hickman getting a DC contract, another surprise. It's like they want Marvel's Architects one by one.

BuzzFeed ran a story on Berganza, maybe this will be the one to finally do him in.

Oh god, I would love it if Berganza was thrown to the fucking wolves. Guy is a monster.

If the WonderCon situation didn't get him outta there, this article surely won't. I saw more scathing things about a Newsarama reporter on twitter last week than any (needed) viciousness in this article.

I don't think it's suppose to be Selina, even though it looks like her. I'm pretty sure that scene was just a call back to Batman #452, where Milligan first introduced Barbatos:

You can't stop the Huge Ultimate Retcons, Hypo. Please stop trying.

But seriously, it Bruce can be prepared since his first case to be the host of an evil god instead of the ultimate antihero, then Selina can be worked into a similar role of some sort, and I swear DC is leaning there.

Suspension is what they've done in the past. Solves nothing. Does nothing.

Reading the hella-dark House of Horror anthology they published recently, I have to say some romance will be a refreshing change of pace.

Going from Bogdanovic (with Sook pinch hitting) to Booth is quite a downgrade, even if Bogdanovic is just a poor man's Capullo.

"Suspensions do nothing" suddenly doesn't have quite the ring it used to.

Fuck Berganza.

Yeah, sounds like he should have been booted a long time ago. Pretty weak that DC suddenly decided to do something about him. Real stand up guys THEY are.

DC knew everything Berganza did five years ago, but they kept him. And apparently he had behaved himself for the past five years. Then, when Harvey Weinstein suddenly shifted the cultural norms about sexual harassment, his victims renewed their complaints and DC fired him.

Was that a legally justified termination? I don't know. It's an interesting question. Berganza might be able to argue that DC moved the goalposts five years after the fact.

I don't know that I listen to either speed or pirate, but I know speed metal is real.
