Gotta get that DCeased #2 Variant; my signed NoES poster hangs in my den and I see it every day, so it's a familiar sight.

It's true (though the box is moved to the next shelf over since that photo). I even had to give all GLO Balls to the family because I hate coconut.

If Mikel Janin was better, he'd be Yasmine Putri.

Yasmine Putri seems like the halfway point between Jason Pearson and Esad Ribic.

Young Justice is so good that I want it to be an animated movie series

I really wish Gerard Way wasn't attached to this new Doom Patrol series. His 12 issues he did ended up not being very good. He tried his best to be Grant Morrison, but he was really more of a Rachel Pollack clone. He started out strong but it turned into a dumpster fire fast.

Although I hate that they feel the need to add another Earth lantern to the mix I do think the story itself sounds interesting, I might give it a gander if it's not too teen vibey.

I'm hoping they make her alien somehow....they don't have to be from Earth to be relatable in some way.

^I don't like how dark this coming year is looking to be between Year of the Villain and Leviathan. Justice League is already depressing, now it looks like everything is going that way.

I was kind of happy to see that there is apparently no direct tie-in for The Green Lantern with the Year of the Villain nonsense. I mean, I know it is too much to hope for that no Green Lanterns will be involved, but at least we might avoid having it muck about with the main GL title.

This direction of diving headlong into darker themes and confusing, universe-redefining garbage that seems like it will only taint things going forward (for me, anyway), no matter what the resolution of the event is...I don't like it. It is making me seriously consider dropping comics altogether. It would certainly be nice to save the money.

DC has been dark for the past decade or so, what's going on now is no different from say Forever Evil

Seems darker to me. Forever Evil didn't reframe the entire universe to be darker at its core, it just had a bunch of villains. And did Forever Evil tarnish any heroes? I don't recall.

But yeah, I've been unhappy with the grimmer trajectory of the DC Universe for quite some time. Probably started as far back as Identity Crisis, which I thoroughly disliked. Nowadays, though, the darker tone seems a bit more universal and line-wide.

I didn't even read Metal. I could tell I wasn't going to like it, and thought it wouldn't be that important outside the event. The fact that I seem to have been wrong about the latter is part of why I don't like the direction the DCU is taking.

I passed on Metal. Come to think of it the last event I think I DID take part in was Brightest Day. Just no interest in them anymore.

Metal was decent, I will probably always like Capullo's art. I generally like Snyder, but his non-cape stuff is his best. Reading No Justice and Metal prevented me from getting into his Justice League run.
Too many ideas at once, too much going on, too many words. I couldn't get interested.

Year of the villain isn't anything new to me and I am glad to skip it, though I much prefer bad guy Lex over heroic Lex.

I read the whole thing and I still can't remember why what they did broke the source wall. I also still don't get who exactly The Batman Who Laughs is and whether he was the main baddie or not.

Yeah, and don't forget the atrociously dark Heroes in Crisis.
To think that they had JUST celebrated their own return to lightheartedness with DC Rebirth.

Well, it did turn Nightwing into special agent Grayson for a year or two. Which was still better than the current "Ric Grayson" arc.

Sometimes, I wish that DC would reset all of their books to New Year's Eve 1999 and claim that everything in-between had been a simulation by Brainiac 13. While the years after that had a few nice concepts and updates (I like Batwoman Kate Kane, Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes, Morrison's Seven Soldiers and Batman, Manhunter Kate Spencer and a few others, and the Rucka/Grayson/Brubaker/Vaughan-era of Batman/Detective Comics/Gotham Knights was choice), going back to pre-Infinite Crisis, pre-Our Worlds At War, pre-Green Lantern Rebirth, pre-New-52 etc seems like the only way I'll ever call myself a DC fan again. Every time I think they're getting their act together, they let me down massively. Every single time.

He wasn't the main villain of Metal, that was Barbatos. The Batman Who Laughs was the one who brought Barbatos upon the DC Universe though, with the help of the other multiverse Dark Knights, the Court of Owls and the mantling. One of the reasons we don't remember what happened to the Batman Who Laughs is that they never showed us in Metal. The last issue of Metal had a confrontation between regular Batman, Joker and the Batman Who Laughs, and then as the trump card, other Batmen from the "good" parts of the Multiverse appeared. Dark Knights Returns Batman, Leatherwing, Red Son Batman, Kelley Jones vampire Batman and others.
This huge "you need good Batmen to fight evil Batmen" splashpage was the last we saw of it, the rest of the issue dealt with other stuff.
