Slight Change

So there is going to be a slight change in my comic scheduling, I will be getting Justice League, Batman, Green Lantern, and two new additions in The Flash & Teen Titans starting next month with #10. But that doesn't mean that I won't be getting JLI until August when the series ends, because I certainly will. Especially #12 where we will see Rocket Red's funeral and is also the last issue of the series. The only reason I'm changing it, is because DC decided to make it so they won't send Red Lanterns or Justice League International via mail anymore.

So in the coming months, here is what I think will be my list of comics:

  1. Justice League #9-12 $3.99/issue (but free due to subscription)
  2. Green Lantern #10-12 $2.99/issue (but free due to subscription)
  3. Earth-2 #2-4 $2.99/issue
  4. Worlds' Finest #2-4 $2.99/issue
  5. Teen Titans #9-12 $2.99/issue (but free due to subscription)
  6. Batman #10-12 $3.99/issue (but free due to subscription)
  7. The Flash #10-12 $2.99/issue (but free due to subscription)
  8. Justice League International #9-12 $2.99/issue
  9. Detective Comics #10-12 $3.99/issue
  10. Legion Lost #9 $2.99 (part of the Culling)
  11. Superboy #9 $2.99 (part of the Culling)
  12. DC Universe Presents #12 $2.99
  13. Green Lantern Annual #1 $4.99
  14. The Flash Annual #1 $4.99
  15. Justice League International Annual #1 $4.99
And honestly, I've been considering getting Animal Man because of the new artist, so maybe even that series starting in August, too. I might just reboot my entire list of comics for September. It'll be the one year anniversary of the DC relaunch/reboot, after all. 

Justice League International being CUT!?

The solicit for Justice League International #12 was just released today, and the issue is going to feature Rocket Red's funeral (finally). But they also had something that surprised me in the solicit: the words of death, aka "final issue."

On sale AUGUST 1 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T • FINAL ISSUE(?!?!?!?!?!)
• It’s the funeral for ROCKET RED.
• Several members resign from the team – who will be left?

The solicit says that many members quit, which is very likely that it would leave just Batman, Booster, and maybe the General-In-Iron. But why? Beyond the fact that Rocket Red died, Ice broke both her legs, Vixen's spine is probably broken, etc... Okay well actually those are valid reasons. BUT is it fair to end a series this quickly? I sure as hell don't think so. If anything, the JLI should continue on. And who knows, maybe it was a typo? One can only hope. Because I've decided that if this is the truth, I will finish out the year with DC and if there are any storylines that haven't been wrapped up, I'll finish them off. Then I'll shut down the blog and think about how badly I really want to have more DC stories. Which will probably be very unlikely. Oh well.
