What would you get with a limited budget?

Say you could only get three of your current books, what would you get?

I've been looking at upcoming issues and their prices. At the moment I'm only getting series with $2.99 price tags. I noticed a lot of titles going for $3.99 and $4.99. Which so far hasn't been a problem because I can either trade wait for those or don't want them at all. The comics I order online come at discounts and after a few months digital lowers the cost of issues from previous months. Some that come out in digital format first like DC's Bombshells are 99. Cents compared to the $3.99 price.

I'm only getting a few titles at the moment so it's not a big deal to me. Still it makes you question if you should be following a book in the first place if you can easily name it in your drop list.

Screw the "New Joker" Theory

I'm not reading why people think it's going to happen. Whether it is or isn't going to happen it's a stupid idea. No one liked it when Miller did a similar twist and this would be throwing a character under the bus for cheap drama.

Now I came upon a post from someone that claims to be in the know that seems to suggest this is bull. I don't know how true this is/if they do have inside knowledge or not. If their right we comic fans should be happy. But if this theory happens I'll be pissed.

Filling in the timeline with Weeklies?

I think it would help the current state of DC comics--A LOT-- if we could read stories from it's past to fill the gaps. Because the thing that drew me to DC in the first place was the sense of history it had and the legacy of its heroes. So select some heroes and show some of their past for a year or so of weekly comics. Show Dick Grayson become Robin, the struggles he faces and at the end have him grow into the role. Then do another weekly series showing him becoming Nightwing while Jason Todd becomes Robin. Have the writers that do the solo titles have input or actually writing. A lot of ground could be carried if this was done.
