Best idea for a book ever tbh.

Oh the sweet precious angsty-ness of it all. Jason. Roy. Could they be any more in need of someone to share their angsty, angsty pain with?
Seriously, though… this title is one of the ones I’m most excited about. I would have never seen this grouping of characters coming if someone had given me a month to think of every possible combination of three characters that I could come up with. Somehow the prospect of these unusual-to-put-together characters interacting with one another sounds fascinating. From the sound of what Lobdell has planned, the book sounds very character driven and focused on building up the individual characters rather than just a team:
"It is a book about people, not about a team. My editor had notes on my second issue asking why Roy and Kory didn’t follow Jason when he left to go do what he’s going to be doing for issue two and three. They are doing their own thing — it wouldn’t occur to them to tag along with Jason. Plus, they are going to be way too busy, neck-deep with their own respective adventures! At least for the first few issues, as the readers get to know and care about them as individuals." - Scott Lobdell, CBR interview
Each character is one that I find interesting on their own. Kory with her incredibly dark and horrific past seems to be able to bring so much hope and positivity to the stories I’ve read with her. Her story with Animal Man and Adam Strange during “52” was what completely won me over. Roy with his drug addiction and temper. And Jason… dude was murdered. By the Joker. With a crowbar… AND a bomb. He’s come back from that (as comic characters tend to do) but I’m really looking forward to seeing him move on from that. I believe Lobdell mentioned that there will be another character involved in this non-team-team but I don’t think there’s any information on who that will be yet.
Can’t wait for this book. As of right at this moment… I’d say it’s in my Top Five Must Read books for September.
And… just saying… I’m soooooooo looking forward to the first time Dick discovers Kory and Roy are now sort of hanging with Jason. AWK-WARD. (It’ll be fun.)
