it just feels like something's missing or something's off with dc now...its not like when they first relaunched and everything felt like DC would be kicking ass for years

it just feels...awkward

Change ups have been happening now which is contributing.

Bendis on Superman, Red Hood leaving the Batfamily again, Green Lantern Corps ending, and so on.

Personally, Rebirth also had stuff that felt more like an average day (which I like better) than the constant 'world ending threats!' every few issues.

Rebirth was just getting everything back on track after new52 derailed it, so now that it's settled, we are just enjoying some smooth sailing is all.

They've definitely moved from a Rebirth Phase 1, which had all engines firing, to a more subdued Phase 2. Doomsday Clock is kind of a letdown considering the crazy levels of hype leading up to it, most everyone's soured on King's Batman run and Tynion's Detective Comics isn't around the pick up the slack anymore, and putting Bendis on Superman isn't the grand slam DC seems to think it is. Marvel also isn't acting quite as stupid as it was when Rebirth launched, which isn't going to help DC's momentum.

I don't know about everyone else, but the fact that they have been spinning their wheels with the Rebirth mysteries and certain writer's runs being ended too early killed a lot of the momentum for me.
Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies.

I don't think quality has gone down, but it feels like things are getting back to "normal". As in, series are getting canceled and relaunched and a lot of new ones have been coming out etc. Not so much like how we got everything at the start of rebirth in one big wave

The initial wave of Rebirth was explicitly designed to placate before they went full speed ahead with the exact same types of things they've always done. The ideas just happen to be more interesting this time around.

A DC having an impressive surge can't last forever. Eventually it will shake the rest of the surge out, roll over, and go back to sleep.
