    Thank goodness the JSA is finally coming back.
    Injustice is not my thing. The bits I've seen look absolutely terrible.

    I usually always find something in James Robinson's stuff that I enjoy, and therefore did get quite a bit out of the very early issues of EARTH 2. He had something entirely different in mind than what Taylor and others eventually got up to. I dont know what was editorial and what wasn't, but not getting to see what Robinson wanted to do was a let down. Prolly mostly editorial.

    That's only because Tom King can't write Batman forever because I dearly wish he could. He's writing my favorite Batman ever.
    While I like Priest and Russell I think they'd face same problems as King. Their writing styles and topics that they tackle can get divisive and I imagine that DC does not want to go that route again after King's run. I loved almost everything that King had written, but I had to drop his Batman because it was very frustrating read to me. One moment I'm loving it, next moment I don't understand what the hell he is trying to do here.

    Taylor does sound like a safer bet that can deliver the goods + he had taken multiple bad ideas (Injustice, Earth 2, DCeased now) and made something worthwhile (to some extent) out of them so he probably has some trust from DC's higher ups as well.

    That's just the point, he's able to take a weak concept and do great work with it.
