    I'll be picking up Final Crisis, it looks like it might be a turning point.

    The unlikely return of Bruce Jones begins in May, I guess.

    What's the deal with John Rogers and Blue Beetle? They've had a lot of fill-ins lately.

    Wait wait wait wait wait... Bruce Jones is taking over Checkmate? WHAT?! Gee. I remember the last time he took over a favorite book and how well it went. Hell, at least with Nightwing it was at a somewhat lower point for the series. Now he's taking it over from the creator of the series. Crap. Count me out.

    I don't think it's an overstatement that crap like this is a prime example of what's wrong with the comics industry, namely the problem with the big two and DC which is the biggest publisher out there.

    Bruce Jones on Checkmate made me die a little inside. Dropped like a crying baby.

    Otherwise, I'll be getting:

    Booster Gold
    Fables
    Green Lantern
    Justice Society of America
    Northlanders
    Wonder Woman

    Yeah. I hope he's not off the title. I can handle fill ins but Blue Beetle is very much his baby so I hope he stays on it for a good long while.

    Can _anybody_ give me a good reason why Adam Strange was forced back into his old costume?

    Holy War looks interesting- I see some of Starlin's Hardcore Station characters back in the fold (Chief Justice Max and what looks like Synnar), along with a slew of other DC Cosmic characters. And Bizarro Superman, to boot!

    I find it interesting that Joe Benitez is penciling TITANS #2. Has Ian Churchill already left/been booted from the book?

    Eh. I read the marvel solicits, and I got SUPER excited. The DC ones...not so much.

    Though, against my better judgement I find myself kinda excited about Final Crisis.

    DC must want Checkmate to die. That's the only reason why Bruce Jones would take over.

    Holy War is a possibility for me. It looks interesting to me, but I have not really read anything about this Rann/Thanager conflict before, but I did like the space-heroes in 52. Do you think I could catch onto it?

    Batman: Gotham at Midnight - looks interesting, like the creative team a lot, but does anyone know how many issues this series is? I tend to not enjoy minis that are over 5 or 6 issues because most of the time I lose interest in the story, and then I have 4 issues of a random series that I never finished sitting in my collection. For longer series, I like the idea of a trade.

    Other than that:
    Final Crisis
    DC Universe #0
    Batman
    Green Lantern
    Justice Society of America
    Action Comics
    Detective Comics
    Nightwing

    For me...

    Batman: Jekyll and Hyde
    Superman: Camelot Falls v1
    Superman and the Legion of Superheroes (maybe when it's out in paperback)
    Teen Titans: Titans of Tomorrow
    The Programme v1
    Demo (I've never liked Wood's writing outside of the excellent DMZ, but 328 pages for $20 is the kind of pricing to sway me)
    Jack of Fables v3
    Vinyl Underground v1
    Y the Last Man v10
