    -Aquaman #10
    -The Flash #10: Yay! More Rogues!
    -Superboy #10: The more this comic ties in with books I don't read, the more I consider dropping it.

    -Batman #10
    -Batgirl #10
    -Catwoman #10
    -Nightwing #10
    -All-Star Western #10

    Hmmm. I may not preorder anything from DC for June. My comments:

    - I'm vaguely interested in the first TPBs for Men of War and Wonder Woman, but I can live without either one, honestly.

    - That Wonder Woman: The Twelve Labors TPB is a maybe, but what's up with the rotten cover scan, DC? Looks like you scanned that art out of a bound book and couldn't get it laying flat on the scanner.

    - I'm on the fence whether I want to keep going with Fables. Otherwise, that new TPB would be a sure buy.

    And that's it. I may well turn all that stuff down.

    Nah, apparently the guy that runs the trades department is just a huge fan of Morrison, as just within about a year's time there's absolute editions of Batman and Robin, Final Crisis and a reprint of All-Star Superman, as well as an omnibus of The Invisibles.

    If omnibus' are counted, though, Geoff Johns has the prize on that, what with three Flash ones, Infinite Crisis, and Hawkman.

    I guess DC finds a formula with their reprints and beats it into the ground.

    Batman & Robin looks awesome with all of the Robins in one place. Can't wait for that. Can't wait to see what Black Manta is up to in Aquaman, although I think he's gonna be appearing in a flashback, but hopefully with his presence, Aqualad will soon show up to. Kaldur, not Garth, I don't really care about him. Not sure about Batman: The Dark Knight or Batman Inc. I'm reading tons of books as it is, I don't think I need more Batman solos, but from what I've read of it, Morrison's Batman run as been great, and the new writer for TDK has been getting good reviews for his Penguin ​mini.

    Interested In:

    Showcase Presents: Rip Hunter, Time Master Vol. 1 TPB: A black and white collection of Silver Age awesomeness!
    Wonder Woman: The Twelve Labors TPB: Possibly the best era in Wonder Woman's history.
    DC Comics Presents: Superman Adventures #1: Instead of straight collections of Issues #1-4, this collects Issues 16, 19, 22 and 23. I guess it's more of a "Best of" TPB? Still, it's classic Mark Millar all-ages tales.
    The Shade #9: Forgot how much I love Tony Harris' artwork.
    Saucer Country #4
    Scalped #60:
    The end of an era. Also, the end of Jason Aaron contributing to the Vertigo line...

    Really? I'm curious why you feel it's the best. Most fans seem to want to throw anything other than the Golden Age run or George Perez's run under a bus (even moreso than the dislike of the "wacky space aliens era" of Batman)...

    This is just "as I understand it", but...

    After the late 60's/early 70's "White Costume" era (which was somewhat of a flop, I believe, though I enjoyed what little I've read of it) DC returned to and fully embraced the Amazon/Greek aspect of the character. They fully embraced Wonder Woman as she was envisioned by creator William Marston (without all the kinky Golden Age sexual creepiness that Marston slipped in). This was also right around the start of the Wonder Woman TV series in 1975, the most popular adaptation of the character to other media. Thus, this was, to my reckoning, the pinnacle era in Wonder Woman comics. Outside of the Golden Age, at least.

    My favorite era, personally, is the William Messner-Loebs era. He managed to balance humanity and grace in Wonder Woman, plus he's just a damn good writer generally.

    This, for example, is the best Wonder Woman comic I have ever read:
