Man! I ...do not feel impressed.

there apparently are, what, 5 writers at DC?

Williamson, Tynion, King, Cloonan, Marika?

(yes, yes I know there are more, but these 5 are writing multiple titles!!)

And the titles given to us....how about some less Batmen stuff, eh?

Always a complaint of mine. I love the character, but jeez, when is enough enough?

EDIT -

This CBR link was still good. Hmmm. No idea what happened to the other one

What I will try -
Catwoman: Lonely City (Hells yeah!!! Cliff Chang)
Swamp Thing: Green Hell
Action Comics  Shocked

Not bothering with any of - I am Batman, One Star Squadron, ANY of the Milestone comics, Green Arrow: Stranded, Any of the Aquaman or Wonder Woman stuff

Going to try and keep up with most of the Bat titles (no Joker, Harley, or the like though)

Some quick hits from my scanning:

-No one got excited about this?...(he says sarcastically)...
"Join Eisner Award winner Sanford Greene as he brings the legacy of the League to life leading into Justice League vs. the Legion of Super-Heroes!"   Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS

What I will try -
Catwoman: Lonely City (Hells yeah!!! Cliff Chang)
Swamp Thing: Green Hell
Action Comics  Shocked
-Not going to try the Dark Knights of Steel title written by Tom Taylor?

-I might try out this World of Krypton title - I generally like VENDITTI's writing and OEMING's art. 

-One Star Squadron has me curious since I like Red Tornado and Power Girl.  But I don't think I want to jump into a "humor" comic about them.

-That Action Comics cover does look pretty sweet.  Might have to jump into that.

-Blue & Gold I'll be onboard for.  Booster and Beetle humor I don't mind.

-Deathstroke Inc I'm onboard for.

-The Human Target by Tom King looks interesting.  Is it a JLI Black Label book?

-Those covers with Etrigan for Justice League Incarnate have me interested.

-And of course, Tom Taylor's Nightwing.

-I didn't realize Robin & Batman was a Jeff Lemire book.  You know I'll get it.

-Tom King writing Supergirl? You not on this Perry?

-I'll likely check out Teen Titans Academy and Task Force Z

-Flash, the Joker, Batman already on these.

Of course - when I say I'm checking things out I mean when they hit DCI sometime in 2022!

Eh, probably not, but maybe when it hits I will have changed my mind? Not going to be a must read for me though.

I was already getting it day of (along with Nightwing), but I was more or less just mainly talking about the new stuff

Thanks for the links fixes.

I was snarky, but there is plenty I will still read. I think I just don't 'recognize' DC because so much has changed in the landscape.
