The DC Solicits are out for July!  Looks like we get spoiled on the fate of Nightwing.

I think the change is stupid. I see no reason why they couldn't have just made a new character for this.

This is just stupid. Glad I had already decided to cut down my titles ... again ... or I would be pissed that I was planning on buying this. Absolutely no sense making this book with this character. And the juvenile tag line? Really? Well I'm sure I won't know Dick for a long time according to this solicit.

I might try it but I don't really get why they didn't just create a new character either.

"You don't know Dick."

WOW. That's where you want to go with it?

I read comics for the suits and the colors. I do. Dick Grayson needs to be a in suit. I don't care about spy comics, or guns and bombs comics. Boring. I want my hyper super hero action. I won't be here for this.

That said, 10 DC books, and 4 Marvel. 6 of those are through DCBS.

I'm getting closer to my 'Keep it in the trades!' quest as well. Smiley

Yeah, bugged the hell out of me as well. Look, it is well known that I am a guy that can throw some vulgarity around, but this kinda crap is just stupid. It is the same juvenile crap the pulled with their "WTF Certified" idea ... that they then back tracked away from faster than Barry's Flash suit coming out of his ring.

It's tough man. I wish you better luck than I am having.  Grin Though I am down to 4 titles, and amazed myself by dropping an Ellis book, I got lucky that this "Grayson" title is not something I thought it would be and I really do hear the siren call of that Spider-Man 2099. Really not sure I will be able to resist it. I will be back to 5 titles soon and then ....

Yeah; I read how you were getting sick of doing the turn around of selling comics you bought to then go after the trades, but for now, I'm fine with doing that. I'm actually amazingly hyper excited with how much of all my new comics I am selling instead of keeping!  Cheesy

Yep, it's a fun hobby on a hobby.  Wink

We should enjoy the heck out of it while we can. Won't be long until the states wise up and start charging sales tax on all inner state Ebay sales and the Feds start looking into people not claiming the funds as income.  Undecided Actually surprised it hasn't happened yet.

I mean, it's technically like a yard sale, but if they can track it easy with Ebay, they will.

Of course if they start charging me for money made on items I already purchased and paid taxes on, I will start claiming the difference in the initial purchase price as tax deductions.

Wow, I went sideways with this post. Sorry ...
