Court of the Owls action figures ? Yes? No?

I'm always surprised when certain story arcs get a line of action figures (like the Return of Bruce Wayne wave) and other bigger storylines get ignored. I mean I know Blackest Night was big but the only one I got was the (Ted) Blue Beetle. I rather get the Talons than Black Lanterns. There's at least 11 introduced. Plus the new 52 designed good guys could be made too.

Cancellation Confirmed

From a interview with Judd Winick:

While the JLI are in the book with issue #12, has the cancellation of "Justice League International" affected the story you're telling at all? Or is what you're doing unaffected as it is specific to your book?
The script was written before the announcement. Even though the book is being canceled, I don't think the JLI is being disbanded so much as we're not publishing a book about it. I can't tell you how it's being wrapped up, y'all will just have to read the JLI title. In Batwing, we will leap in as a team, and Batwing as a member.

The Coming and Potential going of JLI

I'll have to get some extra comics:

Blue Beetle #11 (Booster appearance.)
Batwing #12 (JLI appearance w/Winick writing)
JLI Annual (Something shocking is hinted at, written by Johns.)

If JLI is being canceled (I'm still not fully convinced of this, call it denial) then I'm thinking about getting Worlds' Finest for my second long term book. I'm also thinking about going back to Teen Titans but I don't enjoy it as much (the art isn't my taste.)

In other news I recently got the Court of Owls and Black Mirror trades. May do reviews of them later on. Also got Batman Year One and loved it (except for that Gordon plotline I never liked.)

Back from the MotorCity Comic Con

I got a few back issues I was looking for. FINALLY got one of the Booster Gold shirts I wanted. Got a few other goodies too. There was a guy that claimed he was a comic expert but everything he said was pure B.S. (Guy didn't even know who Booster was.) I out talked him on comic stuff for both Marvel and DC. It was fun.

There was a major downer though. I wanted to get art from the artists I like. Maybe get a Booster picture a Guy Gardner, Mayday Spider-Girl or a bat pic. Some artists I was too shy to approach but I thought why not get something from Ethan van Sciver and go from there? Big mistake. His prices were too expensive for me and after that I didn't want to look at the other prices.

In related news I'm considering a subscription or two though a different site. I might just get one. JLI might be ending though I keep getting conflicting information. Apparently there are other series with lower numbers that should end before it does.

Unsolicited thoughts on the solicits

Because there's some interesting things at work in the month of August.

Justice League International Annual

Kind of have mix feelings on this. I love having more Booster (although I'm still on the fence about getting his appearance in Blue Beetle) but are they going to change the line up AGAIN? Where's Batwing and why would Jaime be part of this? I don't recall reading anything Didio wrote but hey, Geoff Johns is writing too.

The Tim Drake Controversy in Red Hood and the Outlaws

There was a big controversy over Tim Drakes' appearance in Red Hood and the Outlaws #8. Why did some people get upset? Were people overreacting? Was this out of character or was it character development?

DC t-shirts

I really like a lot of the t-shirts DC has including a lot of the DCnU covers.
