Ah cool man. You aren't that far away at all. Yeah i'm excited about FCBD. I thought MTC would be doing more/having events but I haven't heard of anything so far. Are you going to a store in Brooklyn or are you coming into the city?

Also they finally did come out with 1 DVD that contains all 3 parts of season 1. You can find it on Amazon

I just finished episode 1 of invasion and I gotta say i'm not loving all the changes they made. My 3 favorite characters are gone and I don't like the 3 new ones they added. It feels more like a generic JL story rather than an original team which is what made the first season great. I do like the new Robin costume. That is a bad ass upgrade. Anyway here is hoping that the season gets better. But we are definitely sticking with season 1.

Midtown Comics is usually pretty bad w/ FCBD for some reason. Then again they do have 3 stores, so they're doing something right. I'll probably do Brooklyn and Manhattan, there's a shop nearish to me that has some insane talent swinging by, and then hit up Hanley's as some of the signings they have going donw are rad.

As for the the missing member, Aqualad's already confirmed for a return, as his season 2 designs were online a few months ago. No idea what's going on w/Art, but the current running theory is that Wally IS the Flash now, which would be great. I LOVE Cassie/Babs/Jamie being added to the team, and I'm actually old enough to remember Lagoon Boy's first appearance back in the 90s, so it's a nice throwback to that era.

Also Eff yeah Adam Strange and Guy Gardner.

I'm also now 90% certain the "Invasion" arch is actually based on "Invasion", which was a massive DC crossover in the late 80s/early 90s.

As for the box set, that's only the 1st twelve. Ugh. Worst comes to worst, I think I just just dropp $50 and download the entire series via Amazon.

That is cool maybe we will see each Saturday. I plan to hit up a few different shops, plus there is this comic book group in the NYC that is having a big party that night.

Well i'm glad to hear that Aqualad is coming back, it seemed like he would only have a cameo in the invasion trailer. But i do want to see more of the Artemis & Walley dynamic. I do like the addition of Cassie, but not Babs. I feel like its getting a little too "batman family" for my tastes. There are already 4 characters. Plus the trailers seem to imply a lot of this season is going to focus on Superboy. I just worry they are going to make this into a show about DCs biggest characters and not team show about C-list characters which is what made it so original and fun.

You mean the meet up at Irish Rogue on Saturday night? Might hit that up, depending on how Mrs. SW824 and my friend feels. We'll play it by ear.

As for the Bat-characters, it is a bit overkill, BUT Batman is the face of the company, so it makes sense as to WHY we have Bruce, 2 Robins and Babs. Although she may be limited to cameos only. But yeah, I can't imagine them leaving those other characters out of the spotilight for so long, but I imagine the creative team wants to keep any info on the series as much in the dark as possible.

OH! I just realized we have met before. We had a long conversation about comics, games, and music at the Barcade meetup. I also got to meet this Ms SW824. Hopefully I will see you there and we can discuss YJ some more there.

Okay, hey there, Zatanna-person (who's username I do not have at a readily available spot,) yes, I'm more then happy to add you to the group! Please keep us updated on your costuming, that's all I ask.

Speaking of-- crud! I haven't been updating /mine/. I really need to get on that. And... aaah, I've been so lazy. I have a lot of work to do today.

Also, I did not register us for the parade yet, but I will be doing so today. Thanks for the link/reminder!

So now we need to find another Superboy, unless the ticket prices go down and we convince Starwind to come.

Are you guys just meeting for the big DC photoshoot? 'Cause I'm wearing my Batgirl costume for that, but I'm also bringing Young Justice Wondergirl to wear at some point.

Hmm, noted, endo.

LadySummoner, I know that myself (Robin, Dick Grayson) and Kid Flash are going to the big photoshoot, but I'm leaving it up to the rest of the group to decide if they would like to or not. It could be nice to do some photos besides! (Haha, never mind the time skip there, totally legit anyway.)

@tokomo i was talking about the plane ticket. They are about 300 bucks for us since we both live in NYC.

@ladysummoner Also glad to have you apart of the group. I plan on wearing my cyborg to the big photoshoot but will change for the Young Justice shoot.

Speaking of have we decided a place and time where we plan to meet to do this photoshoot?
