I am actually thinking about picking up American Western or whatever its called just so I can see the Owls back in Jonah Hex Time...


Really? I might have to check that out too.

The only thing is, I thought Jonah Hex took place in the wild west...and I'm pretty sure Gotham is on the Jersey Shore.
the new jonah hex series takes place, in old gotham
Wonder Woman is still selling really well. I just want to throw that. It's at either 15 or 13 in the top 100 depending on how you tally the numbers, which is way WAY better than the book was doing this time last year where it was hovering around 40.

The physical sales are still doing the drop off dance but her place on the list is maintaining.

It's pretty decent, too. The eye dialogue is frustrating as hell, but it's nice to see Hex a bit different from the way Gray and Palmiotti have been writing him forever, and the backups are nice.

Perfectly stated Cissy_Chan. Harley Quinn was based almost entirely upon the voice actress from BTAS. She was created to be a one shot character, but due to the actress's personalty she became a favorite of both the creators and fans of the show.

They pretty much looked at everything they were doing, and then scrapped pretty much everything not written by Geoff Johns, added in the Wildstorm stuff Jim Lee created, decided that being able to draw a comic makes you qualified to write a comic, made diversity something annoying and cliché unless we're talking about well written inspiring paraplegic characters because we can't have those, oh and Catwoman and Starfire have sex with guys in spandex a lot.

And Alan Scott is gay.

If DC really wanted a gay Green Lantern then they could have turned Terry Berg, Kyle Rayner's young friend into a Green Lantern. He was already an established, well-developed character, who was openly gay and was already a major player in Kyle Rayner's Green Lantern time.
I still think the Hal/Barry bro-mance should have gone to the next logical step. Hal Jordan is completely in the closet. He's that guy from high school that is like the big jock who picks on dudes and always has a cheerleader hanging on him, and then you get to the ten year reunion and everyone's lke 'Did you hear who came out of the closet", and no one's surprised.
For DC's New 52, go here.
