LOOK! IN THIS POST! IT’S COMIC BOOK NEWS!

This week is almost all about reboots and returns.  And before the break, I’m leading with this:

MORE DETAILS ABOUT DC’S NEW 52: PAGE LEAKED FROM UPCOMING GRANT MORRISON ACTION COMICS #1!!

Just kidding. But here’s some stuff we do know about the upcoming revamped DCU:

  • Action Comics and Justice League are set in the past, which means they are basically origin-story retcons.
  • Green Lantern, Batman and Legion of Super Heroes continue existing continuity, without a reboot, which of course means that those superheroes’ past stays the same.  Unclear what that means for Superman, whose past is intertwined with LSH, but it was pretty obvious to everyone that DC wouldn’t mess with Geoff Johns’ biggest selling DC books of the last five years (GL, Blackest Night, etc.) or with Grant Morrison.  If they screwed with Grant, I think Dan Didio would be hung in Times Square.  And he still may be, actually.
  • The Deadman tale in DC Presents, Green Arrow #1 and Hawkman #1 all start right after the end of Brightest Day.
  • Everything else gets a reboot, apparently.  Don’t know if that includes Swamp Thing—but if it does, then the current “Search for Swamp Thing” mini is completely irrelevant.

And if everything is rebooted, I asked myself while poking around Amazon this week for recent trades to buy, then why bother?  I did plunk down cash for the Batwoman: Elegy trade paperback because it is visually stunning, and I still bought Secret Six, ‘cause it’s so fantastically good, but other than that: I spent my money on an old Warren Ellis title I haven’t ever read, called Desolation Jones.

So, wake me up when September ends.  Until then, hit the break for some cool news of the week….
