    I bought comics haphazardly pre crisis. Post crisis I read straight through funeral for a friend, that was the height of Superman for me. Superman was loads of miss after that and I'd say Rebirth was the best the books had seen since the mid 90's. I look forward to finishing up the digital collections.

    I'm gonna read the Bendis run, but I don't think I'll ever buy it. I don't think Bendis is a good writer, his early success came from co writers and editorial, he hasn't had that in a long time. It has the added disincentive of ending the only good stretch for Superman books since the 90's.

    It was a great run though, I never thought I'd get another great run that added up came to over 100 issues. As much as I wish for more I'm pretty happy with what we got.

    I love Jurgens, give it a A- for feeling a little padded, Superman I give a solid A the horrible multiplicity arc the only blemish.

    I've loved the Tomasi/Gleason run overall, and this final arc is giving them a strong finish. Boyzarro Redeath is going to be one of my favorite Bizarro arcs if issue 45 can knock it out of the park. I've loved the focus on Superman, Lois, and Jon. I loved that they used characters like Frankenstein, Manchester Black, and created new ones like Kathy. But the filler was pretty terrible, and the Imperious Lex arc was nowhere near as strong as it could've been. Despite that I think they've done a good job giving Bendis a strong foundation to hit the ground running. So I give it an A- overall.

    Jurgens was peaks and valleys. When he was on fire he was really pushing Supes forward. I loved how he utilized the Superman Revenge Squad. I think Blanque could be a great "Joker" for Clark and I hope he gets more use. I love his Cyborg Superman (no surprise considering he made him!) and his Zod. I love how he handled Civil War II's premise in the Men of Steel arc better than Bendis did. I really enjoyed his Booster Gold arc, and I loved that he explored the ethics of the PZ. But on the other hand Path of Doom dragged on for too long, and the Oz arc was pretty mediocre (although I loved that shot at the end with Clark hearing everything all over the world). So overall I give Jurgens a B+.

    I'm excited as hell to see AC 1000 and Superman 45, and then the specials. Tomasi going back to Dinosaur Island? Jurgens handling Luthor's "redemption" (one of the strongest parts of his run)? Count me in for both. I hope Bendis does a great job and DC doesn't need to call them back to do ANOTHER clean-up.
    Here's hoping that if it doesn't work out with Bendis, they have Jurgens on speed dial.
