Hmph

From Wizard:

The new creative team on the new Blue Beetle will be co-written by Keith Giffen & John Rogers with art by Cully Hamner. (OK, although I don't know Rogers' work)


Batman/Detective Comics will kick off with an 8-issue story arc written by James Robinson, with art by Don Kramer and Andy Clarke. (Good, but what about the Morrison on Detective thing?)

Ivan Reis will take over pencilling duties on the Green Lantern on-going, which will - in a move that surprises no one - still feature Hal Jordan. (and still be written by Geoff s0dding Johns :-/)

Superman and Action Comics will be co-written by Geoff Johns (GAH!) and Kurt Busiek, with art by Pete Woods .

Greg Rucka is taking over Supergirl. (NO!)

The OMAC Project will segue into an ongoing series called "Checkmate," written by Greg Rucka with art by Jesus Saiz. (AARGH!)

Kyle Rayner will star in "Ion," a new on-going by Ron Marz, the man who created Kyle, with art by Greg Tocchini. (Don't care)

Bill Willingham will write AND draw a new Shadowpact on-going. (should be fun)

Dave Gibbons will write and draw the initial issues of Green Lantern Corps, with Patrick Gleason taking over pencilling duties as of issue #7. (At least Johns isn't writing it any more, not that Gibbons is much of a writer).


So it looks like the grimungritty brigade have taken over, and we can expect another few years of padded, exposition heavy, dull rehashes of Silver Age ideas but with violence and rape to make it 'relevant', followed by DC Comics folding as one by one the ageing fanboys either die or lose their virginity...
