    I would also point out the English edition of Hugo Pratt’s Man of the Great North graphic novel. Pratt is to South American and European comics what Will Eisner and Alex Toth rolled into one are to US comics.

    Also, make sure you stay for the post-credits audio! Someone needs to sign you to a record label ASAP, @Pants! :smiley:

    @Adam_Murdough, re: Dastardly and Muttley, the artist Mauricet is Alain Mauricet, a Belgian artist who’s been getting work with DC for about a year now, most recently on one of the Harley Quinn books. I've known him for a few years now, and he’s very good, a huge Kirby fan, and a super nice guy.

    This is also an acceptable pronounciation of Detroit. We were founded by the French.

    I wasn't excited for Metal at all until I read The Forge. It did the same thing for me that Rebirth #1 did. Lots of teases and this time(hopefully) we'll get all the answers within the event over the next few months.

    I'm in the mixed feeling camp. The story was intriguing. A few concerns:

    - Large swaths of JRJR art - I'm sure that I missed something on those pages - read them fast and spent very little time with the art as it literally makes me angry.

    - What feels like a large potential to be screw still further with the Hawks.

    I read DARK DAYS: THE FORGE and found it fun enough. But like Murd, I'm a bit offput that this will be an(other) event all about Batman. DC's like a 45 year old woman with huge breasts who thinks the only reason why any guys would be interested in her is because of her breasts. I mean yes, Batman is an ample pleasure, but jeez DC... there's a whole lot more of you to like. I wish you'd realize that.

    Comparing Batman to a pair of boobies really makes me look at Kelly Jones' interpretation of the Dark Knight in a new way. Staying with that analogy, would Jones' run be DC's "Blond Ambition" era?
