DCs' Many Cancelled Titles

Some are to be expected while others are a shock. But this many series at once are ending? Something is up.

Infinity Man and the Forever People #9
Aquaman And The Others #11
Klarion #6
Secret Origins #11
Star-Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie #8
Trinity of Sin #6
Worlds' Finest #32
Arkham Manor #6
Batwoman #40
 Green Lantern Corps #40
 Green Lantern: New Guardians #40
Red Lanterns #40
Swamp Thing #40

The GL books and Batwoman definitely raise an eyebrow. Maybe their getting new takes after the big event that will reboot certain titles?

New Solicits

Last Month I had nothing to talk about, this month gives me a few topics.

Well tell him that you care

While I appreciate the context of the panels above it does tick me off that Bruce just suppresses how he feels after Jason comes back. Like he doesn't know how to react. At first it's denial because much like his parents he's accepted Jason died. Then after UTH happens he makes a nasty comment although Ollie knows he doesn't mean it. When someone else makes a jab--again Ollie--he gets defensive and points out the other mans' shortcomings with Roy. Then in Batwoman he's back at making hurtful comments about Jason, which is either before or after he gets Jason to join Batman INC. All these emotions he has to deal with and I keep thinking this is why I struggle with the idea of Bruce mourning Damian. Writing-wise it just seems like an attempt to try the same thing again and it can't match up. Not 20 years worth of stories which make this something that stood out. They should have just kept Damian alive in the first place.

The Ongoing canon battle in Star Wars

I don't think I have mentioned my love of Star Wars much on this site. I mostly stick to comics rather than talk about movies and tv shows. I felt the need to go over my feelings on the criticism some fans have due to the apparent ending the Expanded Universes' canon status. (Sound familiar ?)

New Warriors VOL. 2

Let's see how the second volume of the classic New Warriors fares.
