One Last Ride

Reading the Leviathan Strikes! one-shot was bittersweet. It has the distinction of being the very last book to be published under the old continuity. I found certain stories in the book to be quite entertaining, and there were others that (like a lot of Grant Morrison's stuff) I didn't understand at all.

But the book mostly reminded me how much I loved Stephanie Brown's Batgirl. And Barbara Gordon as Oracle. And as I was reading the book I realized that this would be the last new story about these characters. I would never get to read about them again.

And that makes me sad. By and large I've been a supporter of the "New 52." Some of the books have been hits and others misses. But on a whole I think it was a good idea. Plus, if they can keep sales up it may be a good thing for the comic industry as a whole.

I'll still miss those characters. I'll miss the history built up for them over the decades. Those stories are still there, but in some sense they don't mean quite as much now that they're disconnected from the present.

I suppose I'll have to hang on tight and hope that this new continuity can build a history that means as much as the old one did. It's not impossible. But it still won't be the same.

I've been enjoying the new 52 for the most part. But I can't help but think that the whole thing is just temporary. It's just too hard to throw all of that precious continuity away completely.

Wow this comment-thread got ALL spammed up real quick. Commercials, ugh!
Sorry, where was I, oh yeah ... I just now read the Leviathan Strikes TPB and really liked a whole lot of it, but completely need to dig out the whole run of Batman Inc, pile them up, and painstakingly pore through it all, hopefully in a single day, to have ANY hope of following the plot. I know there IS a plot, but I sure wasn't on top of it at any point.
Which (looking over this) looks like a snarkily ironic complaint, but honestly completely is not. Morrison always delivers a plot, he just makes me work for it extra hard.

“If you knew what was going to happen, if you knew everything that was going to happen next—if you knew in advance the consequences of your own actions—you'd be doomed. You'd be ruined as God. You'd be a stone. You'd never eat or drink or laugh or get out of bed in the morning. You'd never love anyone, ever again. You'd never dare to.”
