What upcoming OYL books do you plan to pick up?

I'm probably going to get:
52
Batman (once Morrison comes on)
Checkmate
Meltzer's JLA
Shadowpact

And I'm considering Superman and Ion.

What are you getting?

I think it's about time I started posting again...

I'm getting...
- 52
- Nightwing
- Robin
- Teen Titans
- Outsiders
- Ion
- I might get Supergirl, I'm a little hesitant...
- And I'll get the first arcs of Batman/Detective Comics and Superman/Action Comics, I'll decide if it's worth continuing with those sereis after that.

I'll also continue to pick up the All-Star titles, Infinite Crisis, and Batman: Year One Hundred (from the DC Universe at least).

I dont usually get comics, but if I did, I would get Batman and Superman cause I'm really curious to what happens to them

I didn't know Morrison was writing Batman - I'd check that out.

Right there with ya. Used to love Batman as a kid. If anyone would make me read that series, it'd be Morrison.

nope. i hate pimped out 70s batman.

i'm def. picking up 52. unfortunately, that'll cost a buttload of money, so that'll be the only DC book. maybe nightwing every now and then.

I'm actually really happy that Morrison is doing the “Neal Adams, hairy-chested, love-god” Batman. I was recently re-reading Kingdom Come and I realized that I'm sort of sick of the doom and gloom, brooding Goth kid Batman, and I'd welcome more of a James Bond-ish, less psycho version of him. (like he is in Kingdom Come).

Blue Beetle
Batman
Detective Comics
JSA
Justice Leauge of America
Nightwing - Probabtionary
Robin - Probationary
Teen Titans
Outsiders - Probationary
Firestorm
Birds of Prey
Shadowpact
Green Lantern Corp - whenever it launches
Flash - Whenever it launches

I think I'm looking forward to 52 and Robinson/Morrison/Dini bat stories the most.
Battle for Bludhaven
Spector: Dead Again
Ion - Prohibitionary

EDIT: Okay, I was just reading one of the WonderCon panel updates and it said that Alan Scott is going to be the White King of Checkmate. I guess I have to add it to my pull list too since Alans probably one of my top 5 favorite DCU characters.

Batman is still much closer to being crazy than to being pimped out in KC. He's moooore sane, yes, but I'm for that. I'm not for pimps.
