DC Solicits for May 2016

Toy Fair is over and the solicits were delayed due to the holiday. Not much to talk about.


I do not like this redesign, sorry Jim Lee this just didn't work for me. Griffin and DeMatteis are writing this so if you like their current work you'll probably like this. Not a buy for me.


I'm not reading this story and won't be getting it. I just wanted to comment that I love the look on Lexs' face. It's just a perfect image that gets across a message without saying a word.


What is up with Barrys' pose ? I'm pretty sure that's not one you want to have with flying debris.


This composition on this really bothers me. Roy is fine but having the helmet centered on the bottom throws me off. As for the plot I'm wondering if this is a set up for Roy to go to the Titans. If so I don't like the idea of the guys leaving on bad terms.

Other books:
  • Starfire is ending and since I'm not a fan of how she was written I'm fine with this.
  • Batman has Bruce smiling, which I'm guessing is a good thing? I'm not a fan of Snyders' ideas for Bruces' future so I don't think I'd like the issue.
  • Green Lantern Corps EOO is having them battle for who lives. Nice to see that plot isn't forgotten.
  • Grayson continues the "Grayson is the greatest" train but after Robin War I don't give a damn. I'll be able to care for Dick again with different writers but after the stunt he pulled I can't see him in the same light. He brought all the crap in RW on himself and endangered his family.


  1. It is a bit hard to get excited about the DC output lately, isn't it?

  2. Yep, I'm hoping Rebirth has things for me to be excited about.
