Full DC books are up

DC
BATMAN #660 & 661
Written by John Ostrander
Art by Tom Mandrake
Covers by Gregory Lauren
Don't miss a 4-part murder mystery by the acclaimed team of John Ostrander and Tom Mandrake (THE SPECTRE), starting with two chapters in December! Three horrific murders rock Gotham with only one gruesome connection: parts of the victim's faces have been carved away. Meanwhile, a brutal Russian gangster called Perun threatens Amina Franklin, a doctor working at Leslie Thompkins clinic, which brings in not only the Batman but his bizarre new foe: Grotesk!
And as the mystery of Grotesk deepens, a vicious new player enters the game — a Japanese yakuza named Johnny Kareoke! Batman confronts Kareoke and his murderous Geisha Grrls while the monstrous Grotesk strikes once again!

...WHAT HAPPENED TO MORRISON! Oh **** you DC. Batmans dropped for those 4 issues.

DETECTIVE COMICS #826 - Oh. A joker story. Well hell.
ROBIN #157 - Oh cool. Klarion.
ALL STAR SUPERMAN #7 - Bizzaro Superman. I can't wait to see Quietly do a Bizzaro Superman
ACTION COMICS #846 - ZOD
SUPERMAN: EMPEROR JOKER TP - I doubt I'll order it, but I am intrested in reading it.
52: WEEKS 31-34 - Duh.
THE ALL-NEW ATOM #6 - We've got a slow burn on this book. All hail the cancer god!
THE BLUE BEETLE #10 - So both Firestorm and Blue Beetle are going to be dealing with the New Gods huh? I hope it follows Morrison's 7S versions.
Birds of Prey - You know I was looking for a reason to keep this book on my list. Adding Manhunter to the cast is a step in the right direction. I might as well keep my app apreances run going
CHECKMATE #9 - The Squad is coming... soon...
DCU INFINITE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL - it looks like fun
FIRESTORM: THE NUCLEAR MAN #32 - This book really doesn't get enough credit
JONAH HEX #14 - Best monthly DC puts out. You're all missing out.
GUY GARDNER: COLLATERAL DAMAGE #2 - He's funny.
CONNOR HAWKE: DRAGON’S BLOOD #2
JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #1 - I cannot wait for this. So much that I just bid on a full run of Starman (Even all the minis and one shots and whatnot) to prep.
JSA CLASSIFIED #20 - Dr Mid-nite baby.
JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #5 - So far it seems a bit underwhelming for The Justice Leauge
MANHUNTER #26 - I like this book, especialy when it forcuses on the legal aspect as it seems to be here.
SHADOWPACT #8 - I'm back and forth on this book.
TEEN TITANS #42 - Kid and Blue Devil. I'm there.

Wildstorm

TRANQUILITY #1 - Sounds intresting, and Simone has done some very consistant work.
THE AUTHORITY #2 - The Authority, saving a marrige? I dunno.....
STORMWATCH: PHD #2 - Sleeper hit of the Wildstorm relaunch. Order it.
THE BOYS #6 - The second issue solved alot of the problems I had with issue 1. Hopefuly it'll keep improving.
DESOLATION JONES #8 - **** yes.

Vertigo

DMZ #14 - Very compelling read each month

Did they take Morrison off Batman?

Please tell me they didn't take Morrison off Batman. Please tell me he's just on hiatus for this one storyline while he sets up new ongoings for Lobo and Animal Man.

*sigh* That new storyline really sounds like more of the same old Batman we've been getting for years.

How far did you make it? Please don't tell me you stopped after Book 1. :(

Anyway, I'm pretty excited for most of the December releases. Wolverine #49 sounds hilarious, Runaways #23 makes me afraid of loosing another, and USM #103's cover is very nice.
Ultimates 2 #13- Part 7 (of 6)...excellent.

The Runaways Volume 2 HC only collects True Believers and Escape to New York...I actually kind of like that. I just hope they get to making the Volume 3 HC containing Parental Guidance, Dead Means Dead, and Live Fast as soon as possible. Splitting Vaughan's run on Volume 2 into two whole hardcovers is much better than putting v.2 #1-18, and then starting the third Hardcover with Vaughan and ending with Whedon. Kind of keeps it all together.

I made it to book 3 and realised that I didn't really care. Maybe I'll try again...

That series changed my life *remenices.*
Oh well, to each his own. The series sounds great, though it takes place after the events in Book 4- so it might be good to read it. I'm sure they'll try to make it as new-reader friendly as possible, though.
The Dark Tower series is going to rock my ****ing world:D

Planet Earth. Inhabited by six billion people. People leading ordinary lives, coping with everyday struggles. But on a night like any other, the Earth is rocked by the most startling celestial event ever witnessed by the human race. The White Event. And from its wake, a handful of humans emerge as something more.
Is it just me or does this sound like a ripoff of JMS's Rising Stars? I only read a couple of issues of it but this sounds exactly like that. Even the name White Event, wasn't there some white flash of light that started the changes in Rising Stars?
