They're like their own thing. I think the Young Animal imprint will have some vague ties to the DCU (Like Mother Panic I believe will be set in Gotham) but for the most part it should be it's own thing. In the blurb about the new Wildstorm imprint sounds like it'll take place away from the DCU definitely.

I'd say quality-wise I'd have to go with Neflix, however, the CW shows are not only more fun but I find myself rewatching them more than Netflix. Netflix is good for when it comes out, but I feel like the CW shows are great and long lasting.

Honestly, I'm finally at episode 12 and I must admit that it got a lot better. Cat Grant grew on me a lot, so right now I don't have too many of the same complaints I had 10 days ago.

What a fascinating post. I always loved reading up on history in comics, so this was very enlightning to me since my knowledge of DC pre-2006 is shaky at best. Personally, I'd say I'm on the side of Hypertime just because it sounds creatively fun, and full of possibilities. In fact, it kind of sounds like what DC is doing with Rebirth right now, the merging of pre-N52 and post is changing characters and their history to be the best of both worlds.

I prefer Robbie over Johnny.

Honestly Ghost Rider surpassed my expectations. First time I've seen the show, and Ghost Rider is definitely the only reason why I'll be watching this. Thankfully they didn't choose Johnny Blaze for this Ghost Rider, because I feel like Robbie's version fits very nicely into this show. The CG surprised me, especially on the slow transformation at the end. As a Ghost Rider fan from the comics I'd say they nailed the tone, character, and potential of him in this series in the best way possible.

This is spoiler stuff so read at own risk

At the end of Death of the Family Bruce lost the trust of the entire batfamily, nobody wanted to talk or work with him again. In Robin rises he goes on what basically is a suicide mission to save his son, and in the process the family decides to trust him again. Both are great stories. After Batman Death of The Family you can read the line of Batman & Robin Requin until Robin Rises. It was a great arc

I don't think Robin Rises really undid the effects, I just think that it was a quick character arc that needed to happen to bring Batman back from the brink. On paper it's great, but as the issues came out I can see how it would seem quick and seeming to undo what has been done. Honestly I like this type of Batman. What I really connect with in a Batman is one who has created his own family, not one that pushes all of them away with major trust issues, which is one of the reasons why I have a love/hate relationship with that storyline.

I'm not reading Nightwing, but I believe Detective Comics is part of the crossover and they never really needed any lead in. There were super small hints I think near the beginning when Batman was going around making sure the team is formed, but other than that I don't think it really needed much lead in. The Batman solo having the most lead in makes sense, and just like any comic arc these days there won't be many threads continuing from arc to arc. As I've understood it Nightwing, Batman, and Detective Comics will all have their first arcs and Night of the Monster Men will be all of their second mini arc, then the real second arc will be after that.

It's mostly speculation on my part, but if you read the trades once they come out I think Night of the Monster Men will be its own trade while each individual series will skip over those issues in their collections.

The New 52 does continue Johns' story, but I will say it's not his best work on GL however it is still very much enjoyable. If anything, everything in the new 52 sets up Johns' last epic issue, so in a way it's better context to read it before reading his last issue. After that, I'd say continue onto Venditti's run. Fans seem split with him, but I love what he's bringing to the title.

Heaps of great characters created recently. Let's see now:

Harper Row... um

Gotham Girl... er..hang on

Duke Thomas... uh, actually....

can't think of any.

I love how there have been so many new characters made for the Bat-books, but I don't feel like any of them bring anything to the table other than being next in line for something.
