I admit I gave DC a chance with their new reboots but there's been so many changes of staff and new books with characters I don't really care, I gave up many of the new DC books (and now that Jim Lee is leaving JLA...that prettu much leaves me done with DC for a while).

I think DC is doing what Marvel has done with the Ultimate line where it's just getting too big and it's all ongoing series so it will eventually get stuck with too much history so for me, the whole thing has lost interest.

Glad to see The Boys and A Vs X is ending today, 2 great series.

I've been enjoying the Earth 2 books.  They do have a nice feel to them.

The new 52 slate isn't as clean as you think.  They do have some history.  And my favorite title, The Legion of Superheros seems to have, from what I can tell, pretty much kept their continuity intact.  They had a 6 issue "origin" miniseries but that didn;t seem to have anything new or different from the origin stories I remember.

 I wait on trades so if earth-2 is actually good I'll get it. But it would be James Robinson's first good book in a long while. Going to have to get that death HC and the walking dead compendium 2.

My mystake, there is one more issue for ''The Boys'' after the new one this week.

Not that I'm begging for it but, haven't seen too many reviews of the Watchmen's series in a while...a sign it's no longer as ''good'' as it started? Just kidding...

I haven't read Earth 2 but this article describes it well enough that I'm interested now. Cool article. I also like the idea that JSA is not from a bygone era but is the start of a new era with Superman and co. being dead.

But at one point you mention that it remains to be seen if the Earth 2 characters will merge with the New 52 universe, but doesn't World's Finest prove that's what DC is doing? Or do you mean all the characters, not some?

@karas You are right, the reboot is not squaky clean by any means.

@jedibanner AvX wrap up next week!

@alienstatue I was referring more to the idea of Earth 2 eventually folding into the regular New 52 universe, like the original Earth 2 did in DC's old continuity. I brought it up because if they were to do that it would be a real shame. The set up for the Earth 2 universe is so much more interesting, I really want to see them run with it. There are some rumblings of a New 52/Earth 2 crossover...

The Earth 2 books are by no means amazing, but they are fun, and have a lot of potential.
