Knowing I'm reading the last few issues of my favorite comics is making it hard for me to stay enthused. But now that it's July, I've got just 2 more issues to look forward to for darned near every DC title I read and y'know... that just plain sucks. At least, most seem to be going out with a bang and I'll be able to look back, and reread, and know they were fine entertainment.
Here are two of the comics I won't be reading or able to read come September.
Dick gets out of a jam with sharks, then figures out the bit of a puzzle that's been eluding him. But more intriguing is the side story that will be coming to the fore featuring Commissioner Gordon's son. I suppose this story could be told with Bruce as Batman. I suppose it could even be told as a Nightwing story. But I can't see either option being better than the story as written for Dick/Batman. Scott Snyder owns this book and Jock's art has set the bar so high, I don't know if anyone could ever do as much justice to Batman regardless of who is under the cowl.
Gotham City Sirens 24
I'm not sure what they'll end this. The solicits for July and August aren't particularly informative, but this issue sure marks a change in direction with Harley going back to the dark side. Selina rocked in this issue. She's become one of DC's better female characters, so complex, her morals ambiguous and yet, she usually does the right thing. What she sounds like in the upcoming DCnU just makes me want to cry. "Addicted to Batman"? Sheesh. Bruce and Selina love each other, plain and simple, but the way things stand, they can't be together unless Selina steps out of the shadows of ambiguity and she can't do that and remain true to herself. It's that dynamic that makes for such powerful scenes between them.
Have I mentioned lately how much I despise the DCnU?
