    I was surprised and pleased to see Beast Boy on the cover of the DCU Holiday Special. I'm hoping this means he'll be having one of the stories. Besides, I always like these holiday-themed issues.

    The rest of December's offerings look to be a mixed bag. I'll probably pick up about half of them. Also, I know I'm probably in the minority, but I didn't like the cover for Titans. In fact, it kind of irked me. I just don't see Donna ever sitting up on a bar with a Come Hither look--it makes her look like a complete tramp. Oh, and am I the only one who thinks the bartender looks like Humphrey Bogart, and the guy on the lower left is Mr. Clean?

    Hey, I've watched your blog for a while and have enjoyed it. I really like Donna Troy, and I agree with Rogue about how ridiculous the December Titans issue sounds.

    All of this group of Titans have dealt with hard things, but Donna has them all trumped. To forget being a goddess and all she's gone through to go "sow some 20-something oats?" Wow. This is why I haven't followed the relaunch of Titans.

    Keep up the good work here.
