  1. Since both the Guardians and the GLCorps are out...

    Since both the Guardians and the GLCorps are out of commission for the moment thanks to the events in that series, it's all kind of a moot point, isn't it? I'm not saying I would have necessarily...
  2. Sure, "great" is probably pushing it for my...

    Sure, "great" is probably pushing it for my tastes, but he's certainly put out some really good ones. I loved Speed Metal, for instance, and the first issue of Infinite Frontier was very strong,...
  3. Yeah, that’s my main issue. It felt too much like...

    Yeah, that’s my main issue. It felt too much like plot mechanics for my tastes. It wasn’t a deal breaker or anything, but I would have preferred a more interesting solution than more space politics.
  4. I don't need the Guardians to be "good", I want...

    I don't need the Guardians to be "good", I want them to be immortal beings whose motivations are unknowable, which I get is not something that works very well for most stories that are basically just...
  5. Of course it's personal taste, but I honestly...

    Of course it's personal taste, but I honestly think you should ask more from the comics you consume than the criteria you've put forward on this thread. Aim higher, man. You deserve more. If we, as...
  6. That part tracked. It was their actions...

    That part tracked. It was their actions afterwards that made me lament DC throwing away Morrison's Young Guardians so quickly. I get that the concept of unknowable yet benevolent cosmic beings...
  7. Oeming is certainly not for everyone. I'll pick...

    Oeming is certainly not for everyone. I'll pick up the first issue and see how it goes.
  8. The art is gorgeous, but Len Wein was suffering...

    The art is gorgeous, but Len Wein was suffering some extreme writers block at the time, so the writing is the weakest aspect of the compared to what Gibbons was doing. It's well worth reading though....
  9. Where did I say I didn't care for Finish Line? I...

    Where did I say I didn't care for Finish Line? I liked it just fine. I just don't think it was a particularly great story. Again, I think my bar for what I'm asking for from the comics I read might...
  10. You're misunderstanding me. I'm not suggesting...

    You're misunderstanding me. I'm not suggesting that Williamson got the idea from someone here. I'm saying the idea was so obvious he wouldn't need to. Almost anyone could have come up with that idea...
  11. Like I said, this is a rumor only. Any source I...

    Like I said, this is a rumor only. Any source I could give you right now would simply be repeating that same rumor I heard. I'm sure it'll be in the headlines of dozens of clickbait "news" sites soon...
  12. I think Batman Who Laughs is an almost...

    I think Batman Who Laughs is an almost mathematical certainty if this does indeed happen.
  13. The plot isn't the problem. It's the execution...

    The plot isn't the problem. It's the execution that needs to be stronger. If Act 1 isn't particularly compelling, readers are going to be much less likely to stick it out through Act 2 unless it's...
  14. Crisis on Infinite Earths animated trilogy rumored

    If the rumors are accurate, this would make a lot of sense. The unnamed villain from JSA WW2 was Psycho Pirate. The next animated movie is featuring John Stewart, the GL from Crisis. The...
  15. Iím unsure of a lot of the big creative choices...

    Iím unsure of a lot of the big creative choices being made here, but Phil Jimenez absolutely destroyed on the art and the colors were incredible.
  16. His Robin has been great and I don’t even...

    His Robin has been great and I don’t even particularly care for Damian, but goddamn it’s been a fun ride.
  17. I don't think Williamson even needed to look...

    I don't think Williamson even needed to look online for a way to explain away HiC as Wally being mentally manipulated was such an easy solution almost anyone could have come up with it. And while I...
  18. Geez, man. That's pretty sad. The ability to...

    Geez, man. That's pretty sad. The ability to consistently deliver stories should not be where your bar is. How about delivering good stories? Is that really too much to ask for? In that respect, I...
  19. Again, this is a very low bar, isn't it?...

    Again, this is a very low bar, isn't it? Williamson's "creative solution" was already proposed by multiple posters, myself included, here on CBR several months prior to them actually doing it in the...
  20. That's a pretty low bar for a comics writer to...

    That's a pretty low bar for a comics writer to pass, isn't it?
  21. I think Williamson took a comic that was terrible...

    I think Williamson took a comic that was terrible and made it good again, absolutely, but a lot of that could have been Didio letting Johns take the wheel for a moment. It appears that both Manapul...
  22. Considering Williamson's "saving" of Wally was...

    Considering Williamson's "saving" of Wally was almost exactly what fans were saying they should do to explain away HiC, I'm not sure I'd give him too much credit for doing the obvious. That's like...
  23. I'm talking about the quality of his work vs. his...

    I'm talking about the quality of his work vs. his current prominence. I'm saying anyone else has to view him as C-list, but that's where I'd put him in terms of talent given his current work, which...
  24. I think they're both around the same level....

    I think they're both around the same level. They're capable writers who can deliver solid superhero comics, but not much else. However, Venditti has written more comics that I've genuinely enjoyed...
  25. Glad they got rid of those morally compromised...

    Glad they got rid of those morally compromised Guardians of the Universe so we can get the equally morally compromised United Planets.

    Yay.
