Well, I hate to self-promote, but I absolutely don't.

Got Joe Sacco's book that isn't a deeply depressing book about war journalism.  Barely started, but it's a much different animal.  In a good way.

Tyrant and I are going to stake out the local comic shops early this Saturday to try to grab the Tick and Walking Dead freebees. Some of the others look pretty cool too, but if we can at least snag those two, it will be a success. :^)

Looks like DC is cancelling Dial H at the exact moment I started getting sick of it...

Batman 66 looks pretty great.  I hope DC decides to do the same with some other classic TV series: The Superfriends, the Adventures of Superman (with George Reeves), and, of course, Batman the Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited.  The cool thing about the latter 2 is that they can make new stories without having to worry about contradicting a concurrent series.

BTW, not a comic, but I'm finally going to start watching Batman: the Brave and the Bold soon.

Also, with a new Superman movie coming out, I would kill for DC animated to make a Superman animated series in the vein of All Star Superman (Not just an animated adaption like they already did, but a series that mixes cool action with silver age fun).

As long as we're talking about Superman, I gotta say that I LOVE JMS's Superman Earth One. Bought Volume One on a Saturday on a whim. Read it three times. Went back on Monday to pick up Volume Two because this is Utah and they were closed on Sunday. I would totally have broken the Sabbath to have gotten it sooner. Volume Three isn't coming fast enough, dammit!

And as far as Batman 66 goes, I really hope they expand on the cast. Not just bring back lots of old faves, but add new villains and heroes to the story. I would love to see Bane, Harley Quinn, Superman and a bunch of others in that style. But I also can't wait to see Vincent Price and Victor Buono back in action. :D

They specifically said that there will be new takes on classic villains (Two-Face will be in it).  And #2 will have the Killer Croc.  I really hope he's interpreted as being played by Charles Nelson Reilly.

That's some good news! I also hope False Face is in it. That guy scared the crap out of me as a kid.

I am sad to see Dial H go. With the recent change of writers on Swamp Thing making it unreadable, that was my next favourite.

Batman 66 = 0 interest from me.
FINE

I understand how you feel about Dial H, but I think it was getting a bit too weird for a lot of people's tastes. I am interested, though, in seeing how they wrap everything up. But, I'll say this, I hope they don't replace it with just another super hero comic. Hopefully they'll find something equally creative to put in its place.  ...yknow, something that isn't LarFleeze or VIBE. I'm still not sure why either of those are happening.

My guess is because people buy them and not the interesting comics doing new things?

:P
