I saw that Doom Patrol stuff too and I also thought ”Sweet!”  I’ll definitely check out the first four episodes just to get to that!

Just saw episode 4 of Titans. I won't go into too much, but yeah, this isn't enough to keep me around.

When they start working their comics like the MU does, or at least stop pulling comics down that they put up (okay ... or when the Swamp Thing series starts  Grin), I will gladly come back and try again, but for now, I say adios!

Now I really have to push the Manhunter reading

Well, I just got a peek over at DCU and it looks like it may be time to go ahead and start my subscription again. I stopped after two months originally, when I found out they were just putting comic runs up for a limited amount of time and then switching them out (forcing you to read on their schedule and not your own), but it appears as though they no longer do that as I am seeing some older runs and some new runs up on the site now.

Jimmy, I think this would be a good thing for you to join up for, at least in the near future, if they keep going this way. I mean yes, they are not MU ... yet ... but they are getting better it seems.

I did a fast search and not only is the complete run of that Manuhunter series still up, they have:

96 issues of Action Comics including the first 50 and then what looks to be 866 to 900 (Johns run yeah?)
24 issues of Adventure comics featuring the LoSH (no good runs yet though)
13 issues of '81 All-Star Squadron (not good by any lengths, but they have the first 10, so that is nice, as a bonus)
75 issues IN A ROW of '94 Aquaman ... Isn't that including the PAD stuff?
12 issues of the 2000 era Batgirl. The first 12 issues. I need to read that!
90 issues of Batman Including 290-325, Death in the Family and Year Three
32 issues of the original Batman and the Outsiders (Jim Aparo Baby!!!)
100 issues of Batman: Legend of the Dark Knight ... including the first 100 issues
12 issues of Shadow of the Bat (the first 12)
33 issues of Batwing ... I didn't look at what issues because I don't care. BLAH!!  Cheesy
40 issues of Birds of Prey - including the first 36 by Chuck Dixon... not sure that is good or not
12 issues of '07 Booster Gold (the first 12)
31 issues of Checkmate (the first 31 ... I think I want to read that !!)
81 issues of Detective Comics .. a good mix of early and later issues
63 issues of Doom Patrol ... the '87 run that had the Grant Morrison stuff
83 issues of Green Lantern (sadly no GL and GA stuff though)  Undecided
20 issues of the I, Vampire series I have been wanting to read
28 issues of Hitman (the original "The Boys"  Grin)
36 issues of Impulse ... the first 36 ... any good?
81 issues of the classic Justice League of America (including the Perez stuff)
27 issues of Kamandi bitches!!!
38 issues of Starman!!!
38 issues of Manhunter ... well yeah ... duh!  Cheesy
12 issues of Stormwatch!!! WHAT? I could have read them digitally? Not that you (or anyone) should read them at all  Cheesy
28 issue of Superboy and the LoSH !! issues 231-258
24 issues of the great, the amazing Authority!!!
87 issues of The Brave and The Bold!! Ahhh yeah!!!
23 issues of the Flash ... just odds and ends, a few issues of Johns, but not good runs. Hope they change that!!!
35 issues of The Power of Shazam!!! I do need to read this one. To get the bad taste of the newest out of my mouth  Undecided
12 issues of Wildcats. I know I am the only one, but I AM going to read 9-12 digitally.  Cheesy Cheesy

That is a lot more runs than they had before.
Yep. I think I will jump back on!!!

This is good news!  Not being perfect is ok as long as your moving in the right direction and sounds like they are!

That indeed should be PAD's Aquaman run, with the ending dinner by Dan Jurgens-which I just loved. Unfortunately, about 12 issues of Erik Larsen too!

That looks great! I hope they just keep it up, build it up, and continue to offer more! Would love to read some Aparo Batman! Losh stuff as well!

Yeah, I think the value is there now, I mean the cost for what you're getting at least.

Again, while I will watch the occasional DC movie/tv show/episode, the comics are the main draw for me at that site. The fact that they now have at least 100 plus issues of stuff that I know I want to (someday) get to, is enough for me to throw my money down.

Now I just have to decide if I want to go monthly again (just in-case) or do I commit to the full year and get the discount

Do the full year and get the discount.  That way you want waste brain cycles every month debating if you should keep it or not.
