I'm not trying to be a smartass but calling Green Lantern and Duke his closest allies is going to piss people off. I have no idea how Snyder is going to write this but so far it doesn't interest me. Few writers can do the bat family justice anyway so I won't be upset if the rest don't show up.

WTF? What happened to Wally's wife/love interest, Linda?! Fans are going to be pissed if this is a thing and not a bait & switch. I do love how Garth, Dick, Lilith and Karen are awkwardly standing around while the drama goes down on the cover.

I was wondering if we'd get back to Jason's comment about Bizarro having a limited life. Why do they need to go to Gotham and not to Simon? I never cared one way or another for Grundy but I think this will be good.
Tynion is STILL on Batwoman? Will I'm considering Hal's book for the arc because of Rip showing up.
