The Third Wave

JLI got cancelled for these titles, who knows what else went. I'm hoping it's one of the books I don't like. Even if I'm not currently getting the books I used to get it's sad to think their go. For new books we have:

The Phantom Stranger by writer Dan DiDio and artist Brent Anderson

Nice to see another magic book I guess. But I have no interest.

Sword of Sorcery brings Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld by Christy Marx and artist Aaron Lopresti

Heard good things about the old Amethyst books so I might check this out due to curiousity.

Team Seven, by writer Justin Jordan and artist Jesus Merino

Is this a book with characters of cancelled series? I have no interest in Deathstroke or Grifter. Maybe for characters like Amanda Waller if this was the old Wall. But gonna have to pass.

and Talon Co-written by Snyder and James Tynion IV with art by Guillem March

Which I'll write about in another entry. Oh and they ARE doing issue 0s. Too bad JLI won't be around for that.


  1. Well, I like the Phantom Stranger, so I guess I'll give it a spin. And I agree completely, that if it was the OLD Waller, I'd be reading Team 7 in a heartbeat.

    But yeah, not much interest in the rest of the books. We are giving up JLI for THIS?

  2. It would have been nice to have a couple books with characters that haven't been featured in the new 52 yet.

  3. ^ What do you think Amethyst is? Since the end of her series, she was featured as evil in the 90s for a lame crossover, in a couple of panels in Infinite Crisis, and was killed off in her skivvies in Flashpoint. This is definitely her introduction to the New 52.

  4. I knew about the bad stuff but I heard she was amazing before that. I'm guessing this is going to be more in line with the origins Amethyst.
