    His original ongoing and the JLI stuff is from the 80's, yes. The former has been collected in a single book, and a JLI Omnibus with a solid chunk of the era is coming out soon.

    If you're more interested in more modern stuff though, that works too, because Booster Gold Vol.2 is one of my favorite comics of all time. (For the record, so is the old JLI stuff) It spins out of 52, and it nails pretty much every aspect a comic needs to. Consistently great art, AMAZING character development for Booster, both a terrific main supporting cast and great involvement from other DC heroes, and both fun and heart-wrenching stories. It's brilliant.

And the original Waverider is just a riot. He earned my fandom forever the time he had to babysit Impulse and Ray Palmer when they were turned into toddlers.

    King and Priest tackling Clark that month is pretty intriguing. Particularly the latter, as I really liked how he wrote him in Deathstroke. Clark basically flew in, dick slapped Slade and Adeline, and flew back out. It was pretty awesome.

    The solicit in King's books is a tad worrying, but King doesn't write Bruce as a one note spoiled rich brat, so I doubt he will write Clark as being naive.

    That Doomsday Clock solicit makes me think we will be seeing the multiple Jokers thing being address. As long as Superman remains the main focus, I don't mind the rest of the DCU getting in on the action. I mean, the World's Finest friendship not being present in a story where Superman battles the cynicism influenced by Watchmen wouldn't seem right. And with Joker and Lex present, can Barbara Ann show up in some capacity pretty please? That cool looking Rorschach cover did have Diana's symbol with Bruce and Clark's.

    Nah, Johns seems to make it clear in interviews that the three joker story is separate from doomsday clock, though I guess it's possible he may tease it in doomsday clock.

    Yeah I don't think so either. I've been really, truly looking forward to seeing King take on Superman so I'm stoked.

Both comments are short sighted jabs that grossly misrepresent and distorts real aspects of both characters (Bruce is and has always been rich, and continues to have a butler. Clark did grow up on a farm and, regardless of what he's gone through, he does have an idealized way of looking at what the world is and can be) rather than actual assessments of who they are.

    For me at least, I see no issue with the solicit when put into context what the story seems to be about. A falling out between the two.
    Fair point. I'm very optimistic about this. I'm sure both those generalizations are meant to set up something that will distort both ideas. I just wish that wasn't such a prevalent generalization, ya know? A lot of lesser writers have used it as a means to really undermine the concept and character.

    Regardless, this will be a great read.

    King writing Superman and Priest writing Justice League is a pleasant surprise.

    Oh that's right, I forgot that that was mentioned in an interview.

    The original Waverider was great. I'd say of all the heroes who at some point played Clark's right hand, he was up there with Steel. Using the Linear Men in Time and Time Again, then to oppose Dominus, and also facilitating the Armageddon annuals makes him my favorite of the Jurgens cast.

    Booster, I guess I never really think of myself as a fan, but then I end up enjoying his antics anyway. I hope he actually brings levity.

    I'm really looking forward to the Batman/Superman 2 parter. I expect a lot of repetitions in Clark's dialogues.

    Action Comics: A sensible and intriguing direction post Oz Effect. Superman investigating whether Oz really is Jor-El makes perfect sense and Jurgens loves Booster Gold as much as Superman so his passion for both characters should be clear. But it feels weird that I'm more excited for Action Comics than Superman currently when last year it was the other way around.

    Super Sons of Tomorrow: Another crossover? I was hoping for more individual focused stories like Imperious Lex. And as it's been said, the time travel stories where someone has turned evil in the future have already been overused in DC Rebirth recently. It's just bad timing unfortunately.

    Doomsday Clock: So long as Superman is the focus, I'm fine with other DCU characters getting their time to shine. I just hope we get some answers and it's not too gimmicky given the risks being taken.

    Superfriends: I'm uneasy with King writing Superman as well though mainly because of what his Batman run has been about. There's definitely potential if King is on point with his writing but the spoiled rich boy/naive farm boy are instant alarm bells for how the story will portray Superman and Batman respectively.

    Justice League: I remember Priest once saying he wouldn't really want to write Justice League because he'd make it too serious and realistic but I guess that opinion has changed. I admit it would be interesting to see what Priest does with the Justice League though.

    I'll admit Tomasi and Gleason could be doing better as of late but I don't want them gone from the Superman title yet. Imperious Lex looks promising and they have written the best Superman stories in Rebirth so far. It's true they do seem very comfortable using Bat characters hence them popping up in Superman a lot but the Superman stuff has been good too.
