    Hah, yeah. If they do that, there will be over twice as many covers as there are story pages.

    Man, if you'd have told me even after the JLA reveal that VIBE would get his own on-going...

    The biggest news for me is that Lemire is taking over Green Arrow. I'll probably give it a shot, but the other two series don't interest me.
    I'm still waiting for a new Wonder Twins ongoing. Let's make it happen, DC.

    A gimmick is a gimmick no matter how you want to spin it. That said, we don't know what the incentive ratios are yet or how they're spreading the fun around. It's still an absurd number.

    Didio said there aren't any incentive ratio's. You just Order the covers you want for your store.

    It says in the article they're not incentify-zing the variants. And nowhere did I say it wasn't a gimmick. I said it was a more justified one for those reasons.

    Yeah, I'd imagine most stores would just order the normal cover and their individual state's variant, if that. I don't go out of my way to get variants, but if I had a choice of multiple covers for the same price, I'd certain appreciate the option, like I do with the Dark Horse Buffy titles.

    Not really surprised at the sticking of Lemire on GA. The character's the lead in both a new show and a new comic (JLA). DC can't really afford to have he character starring in a solo title of low to mediocre quality. I might actually start reading Green Arrow now. It's disappointing they didn't put someone more established (and probably better) on the Vibe series. The way I see it the only way a Vibe solo title is going to survive is if the writing behind it is strong enough to make him a breakout character or at least a niche character with a hardcore group of fans like Animal Man and Swamp Thing. Without positive word of mouth and review scores bringing more readers in I don't expect the book to last more than 6 months. Maybe a little more.

    Ehh, no problem with any of these books. But I would have preferred different books for fourth wave. I also think they should actually get people to care about Vibe in JLA before giving him a book. Will probably check out Green Arrow and Katanna though. (Can't stand Kriesberg).

    I thought the article said the Vibe and Katana books were mini's that tied into JLA.

    Edit..After further review, it says "two new tie-in series" so I guess it's safe to assume on-going, it's just a tad bit suprising.

    Edit ll...the Lemire Green Arrow article mentions Katana being a mini series.

    This sucks.
    Not sure I fully understand the incentivizing differences, but I hope the lack of it here makes it somehow more justifiable and less of a sales stunt . . . gross . . .

    I also hate this quote:

    So we can't have Wally West and Donna Troy in The New 52 universe but Vibe and Katana already got their ongoing series ?
    Yeah, right, it's totally make sense.
