This series is one of the few that I will get multiple covers for (assuming they are equal distribution variety and not the offbeat upcharged type) and I agree they are beginning to tax my patience.

DC is in danger of really bungling the wonderful energy and buzz they got off the Infinite Crisis. The new series are falling like leaves in the wind and there's a background feel we're in for another universe shake-up. I'm getting a wee bit tired of it myself, though for now I'm hanging in.

I'm looking forward to the new JLofA regime. The end of the Lightning Saga really disappointed me. It had a great big feeling of blah at the end. :-/

I don't go to comic shops so it's a little tough to keep up with the alternate/variant covers. I wound up buying the variant cover to #1 because I pre-ordered "cover A" and Lone Star sent me "cover B" instead and both covers don't work unless you have both of them. So I went with the Turner variant. #0 I went with the standard version. #7 I went with both standard covers. And I did order both Alex Ross covers to #12. I don't know if I will get both covers to #13 at this time.

I'm not looking forward to them in the sense that "I can't wait for them!" but I am looking forward to a little change. Things like shorter arcs, stories done in one issue, issues released on time, etc. McDuffie wouldn't have been in my top 5 choices, maybe not even in top 10, but I hope that he can keep my interest and get away from the "Hollywood writer" mold that DC seems to enjoy forcing upon us. Aren't there real comic book writers anymore?

Everyone seems high on McDuffie because he was a writer on "Justice League Unlimited". He did a decent job on the series but he had plenty of help from other writers and the producers. If you watch any of the extras on the DVDs, McDuffie is kind of "there" and adds little to the commentary. He can write stories but he seemed lost when he came to character history.

I won't get to read it for another couple of weeks.
