    Morrison rarely relies on internal monologues, this is true. I cant think of any of his work off the top of my head that did actually, except maybe a few parts of All-Star Superman. But either...

    Well, from what I've heard. Its not like Ive dug into tons of review sites or gotten a sneak peak at the new team's sales, but from what I have heard it seems to be getting positive reviews.

    To absolutely no one's surprise, I agree with Superlad. Hickman could be amazing on Superman. Hell, he's writing one of the best Superman stories I've seen in a while right now with Hyperion in...

    I dont get the love for Val-Zod either. DC should have just run with Icon instead. But Val's a pacifist, and that's an interesting thing to explore in the world of superheroes, where violence is the...

    Oh trust me, Im with ya. That's why I started the thread in the first place. You tell me Johns is writing Captain Carrot & His Amazing Zoo Crew? I'll sign up for that. There isnt a Z list character...

    Got it because my wife was curious.

    Its quite different from anything else DC is doing, and I like that. The art is unique for the company and to top it off, its sharp. I really liked the art in...

    This sums up my feelings pretty well.

    I loved what Azzarello did. I've followed Diana for twenty years, and she needed something like this run.

    If the Finchs (Finches?) want to keep me onboard,...

    Your sociology class was wrong. Studies have found that your genetics account for a good part of who you are. Its not just nature or nurture, its a combination of both. If you're genetically...

    The only complaints I have ever seen about the Planet and its role in Superman's story is that the Planet has not evolved to fit the times. It could. It should. There's no reason it cant. But it has...

    Action Comics has had basically two creative teams since the 52 began. Morrison and Pak. Andy Diggle and Tony Daniels had a short, three or four issue run, and then Lobdell took over for a little bit...

    In regards to the bolded part; those were not new ways to use his powers. Well, at least so far as the third issue of Unchained goes. That whole "machine gunning" his heat vision? Superman's been...

    Good news is that most of the books you mention have very little cross-over requirements.

    Aquaman is a good, consistent title that isnt going to redefine the industry but is still a fun read. The...

    Well, there have been a number of takes on this over the years, but I generally subscribe to the idea that they are, more or less, two different people.

    Some folks feel that Clark is almost a...

    Its between Aquaman and Flash for me. Lemire's Green Arrow is better than either of those books, but if we're talking about series overall then Arrow fails big time thanks to the creative teams who...

    He does do good work. I ate up his Shazam backup, loved his run with Wally West, the first volume of JSA (second one was decent, just not as good as the first), and his Green Lantern was damned good...

    Dude, I loved the Lemire Arrow as much as the next guy, but to say that Arrow was bleeding edge and Dial H was just another ho hum 52 title is....that's just not even a little bit correct.

    Same here. I dropped the book after issue 3 and it had nothing to do with delays. Snyder just clearly knows the character from 86 on and not the Bronze/Silver Age stuff. Which is a shame, because I...

    There's a market out there for newspapers sure. But its a shrinking market that is dying the slow death of its generation. In a few decades, when my son is my age, newspapers will...

    I'd say that sounds about right. The early 90's had a real "house cleaning" feel to it as well; DC dumped a lot of old characters and concepts and reinvented them. Some of them worked out really...

    You know, if all Johns turns out is a enjoyable and ultimately forgettable run, I'll be happy.
