Looking at DC's October solicitations does feel like the stormy part of the break-up is over with, and after all my pleading and their curt refusals to pay me heed, it's nice to see a few overtures of friendship in the making. It'll never be what it was, but you have to learn to live with each other if you're going to see one another whether you like it or not.
We may disagree on Justice League, but I see things like the Joe Kubert Presents anthology on the list, and I can give a warm smile DC's direction. Just out of nostalgia, they're playing our song.
And then, the announcements about trade collections almost feel like finding a sweater left behind that you hold for a second and wonder what you should so with it, even as you like the feel of it between your fingers.
Green Lantern: Sector 2814 by Len Wein? Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth Volume 2 by Kirby? The Wonder Woman Chronicles by Marston? You can't just toss those memories out.
Reviewing the Super-Books is always where I hold my breath for an instant, watching to see what DC does, see how DC reacts as we bump into one another again on the street.
