Dan Didio's Gift List

A few items on this latest DC Nation to grace the last page of this week's comics are of some interest.

For Robin: A memorial for Stephanie Brown can't be done. Why? Because she won't be needing one soon? She should have gotten the memorial. Then, if/when she returns from the dead, Bats can take it down.

For Green Arrow and Black Canary: Getting Connor back. Not crossed out as impossible. Hmmmm.... He was shot. Doesn't mean he's dead.

Booster Gold: The Blue & Gold back in action. Hmmmmm.... Maybe we Blue Beetle/Ted Kord fans will have something to celebrate, but I don't want to lose Jaime Reyes as Blue Beetle, either. Well, we've got 2 GAs, a handful of GLs, and 2 Wildcats. Multiple characters with the same codename can work.

Yup, things look interesting for the DCU in 2008. If only I could say the same about Justice League of America 16 (and future issues?). Reviews tomorrow night.


  1. There WERE some rather hopeful items on that list, weren't there? The thought of Booster and Beetle of course, has me drooling. Just don't lose Jaime.

  2. Heck, Jason is alive again. He's still got a memorial.

  3. True, Mordicai, but I think the point is that it's now too late even if he wanted to give her the memorial, because she'll be back before it sees print. At least, that's my theory.

    Lots of clues indicate she's coming back, so I think your theory is correct.

  5. Depends how they bring Stephanie back. Can't you hear it now, "See, she never got a memorial because she was alive all along. And Batman knew. So that's why she didn't need a memorial."

    Becuase if you insulate yourself in the comic book industry you begin to think retcons work in real life too!

  6. LOL, Timmy. But wouldn't it be nice if we could retcon real life?!
