"You see this with a lot of Batman's villains -- he wants them to recover, he wants them to find the positive path, because the worst thing in the world happened to Batman when he was eight years old. That's what sets him on the path to become Batman. He knows that a dark moment can send you spiraling in different directions, but he has to believe that you can pull yourself towards the light. Having a character on this team that as fun to write as Clayface, and as fun to play with because of his abilities, is great. I also love that he used to beat up Batman all of the time. There are some good lines coming up in the next few issues. Honestly, putting Clayface on the team is what glued the book together. It's that one extra thing that shows that while Batman is not the friendliest guy in the world, he is an optimist who wants the best things for the people around him -- even his villains. When he sees the chance for redemption, he pushes for it." - James Tynion IV

"I've read everything [in "Wonder Woman"] since I left, so the goal of this is not to be "This is a continuation of Greg's run." The goal is that this is a continuation of Wonder Woman's story. Since it's cast in the light of "Rebirth," one of the things we're all working really hard at doing is reconciling some of the incredible inconsistencies that have arisen in the 75-year history of the character." - Greg Rucka

Let's face it, we all knew a crossover was coming eventually in Rebirth. Now, DC did say there would be breaks to allow the bi-weekly series to stay on schedule. This sounds like this crossover over will be that.

“This is just a lot of fun for us,” DiDio says. “We put out a lot of great superhero fare, we put out some crazy issues in our Vertigo universe, but this is something who really appeals to a mass audience — people who grew up with these characters — and we’re hopefully building a whole new generation to have that same level of love that we have for them.” - From an Article about the new Hanna-Barbera comics

"She is Batman's equal -- she is not a secondary figure. They're cousins, so they are very similar, down to their hearts. I wanted that moment of equalization. ........... That was a turning point in writing that first issue and understanding their relationship together. It really presented itself on the page, and once I wrote it, I knew this was the way to handle it moving forward." - James Tynion IV

Just a fun scene from the new issue with an amusing surprise.

He needed to ensure his legacy.

He had one, of course, but it wasn't Batman- it couldn't and shouldn't be.

He needed Batman to persist beyond his own limits. He needed something of Niles Caulder's to ensure that.

So he broke into LexCorp to get it.

He came in through the walls, into Lex Luthor's office, and told the elevator where to take him.

He met the next layer of security in the basement.

It befitted him more. )

Man, I hope DC doesn't waste this Hanna Barbera world-building kick they're on - this could end up being another Bombshells! Not to mention the literal universe's worth of adaptable ideas for a Wave 2: anything from Samurai Jack to Sealab 2021...

Or at least Ultimate Comics: Jabberjaw. While I type a 5-arc proposal for that, Future Quest draws its first three behind the cut:
And together they're going to learn the true meaning of Christmas )

"I always bring up Afterlife with Archie, wherein they told a different kind of story, they approached it from a different angle, but it was still Archie and Reggie and Betty and Veronica and all the characters you knew. It's just that they were tweaked a little for the story being told.

So with the Scooby Doo stuff, I'm not looking to tell people, "I know Scooby better than anybody else — I'll just change everything!" No. I'm trying to approach the characters by keeping as much of who they are as is possible within the limits of the story.

I'm not looking to do a complete revamp of Scooby Doo. I don't think there's any reason to.

Forget DC Rebirth, the Marvel Now 2: Electric Boogaloo announcement, or the plot development in Spencer's Captain America. HERE'S THE MAJOR BOOK OF THE WEEK: Scooby Apocalypse!

The first part of that formula was establishing the status quo in the protagonists' city.

Convergence: Blue Beetle's bit of that was decently done.

It opened on a standoff.

On one side, some Madmen; on the other, some men. )

"I was friends with Clay before, so it’s great actually working together. I’ve only met Seth, his twin, a couple of times, who’s doing the inking, but I’ve seen his Marvel work before. If you look at my script it’s very straight and focused on Isley, whereas Clay brings in the Ivy-ness, the sexiness to everything. And I mean everything!

Even the plants are beautiful and sexy!

So... since we've been discussing the Joker's Daughter, why not look at her first real issue? She debuted one issue before this, but this is her official debut.

I'm pretty sure nobody is that interested in what happens with Duela after that other post. Red Hood/Arsenal crashed what could have been an interesting arc into the ground and left something boring behind.

BUT

I'm also pretty sure that nobody could have guessed just HOW bad the 'payoff' would be. And since I don't want anyone's rose tinted glasses to go unshattered...
