I was really aware of the increase in violence after the first month of the new DCU. Not only in titles, like Animal Man, or Wonder Woman, which are intended to be horror like, but across the line. And we're not talking Ennis-type of violence here, where it's so over the top you kind of don't care anymore. Best example was the Joker's face being cut off. And then shown. Sorry, but that's just not necessary. It's writing as a slave to art, which wanted to ahve a cool and graphic picture. And nearly all of the new books suffer under this. It's the artists having taken more than their due, and it's shock and awe arond the hour.
