DC Is Out of Their Goddamned Minds - Topless Robot
Adgy you NEED to read this...as a matter of fact I am not sure you didn't write it.
I was actually reading an article about the whole Batgirl thing the other day, written by someone who was very upset about the whole Barbara Gordon not being in a wheelchair anymore, and it's understandable. I'm sure handicapped comic fans of all sorts liked having someone they could at least sort of relate with. Plus, Oracle had become, in my opinion, a very good character.
I'm not entirely sure this is what's happening, though. In recent issues of Batman Inc, Batman mentioned to Oracle about giving her an "avatar" and showed her a drawing of herself in a Batgirl outfit that looks very similar to the one on the cover there.
Beyond all that, I don't understand why you'd want to **** with the bat-books when they're all selling like hot-cakes (especially Batman Inc) and Grant Morrison is in the final stages of his epic, over-arching storyline whose seeds were planted years ago.
Morrison said he'll be able to continue it, but now we have to wait for however many months and apparently a whole lot of **** that just happened in it is going to be different? ****ing great.
I really think DC could have just changed the creative teams and announced the new Dark stuff without all this reboot nonsense.
It probably wouldn't make as much money, though.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

DC Relaunch: The Dark Side of DC Comics | Geeks of Doom
Except for Voodoo I am pretty interested in these books and the direction DC is going, at least as far as the non-main heroes. Deathstroke, Blackhawks, all-Star Western, Sgt. Rock and all these new horror-centric titles it seems DC is going old school. Now all they need is a return to the original House of Mystery w/Cain & Abel and we're all set.
