    I really did like C&D, but while I liked all the characters on Runaways, the plot just left a lot to be desired, IMHO. Plus, there was just way too much focus on the parents.

    I mean, people tend to leave out Kirby and Ditko entirely when they talk about the creation of the Marvel Universe, so (quite frankly) neither Kirby nor Ditko get revered anywhere near enough...

    I usually just dipped my toe into events I thought were more interesting than the others, but I pretty much swore off all DC events (with the exception of events happening almost exclusively in the...

    While the War of Jokes and Riddles wasn't my favorite King arc (not by a longshot), I have to say, "generic" is the perfect word I would use to describe Tynion's Batman writing. It all just seems...

    While I felt (for the most part) Matt's life being in a constant state of turmoil creates some of his best stories, the whole Mr. Fear arc just ran far too long, IMHO (and I say this as a HUGE...

    Yeah, and maybe this is just me, but you could kinda tell that Milla was never meant to stick around for very long. I mean, very few of DD's girlfriend/spouses really do.

    Yeah. While not every arc was a hit with me, King's run was very distinctive, like most of my favorite runs on Batman and Detective. Tynion's just seems like a lot of flash and bang and very little...

    Nail on head. TBH, I'm kinda sick of "hot" artists sticking around for only an arc to drum up interest only to disappear the next to make room for an inferior artist.

    About a million times this. Tynion has always seemed to be a company man, more willing to tow the company line than do anything truly interesting or creative.

    Superman has definitely been the biggest jobber post-Crisis. And, yes, For Tomorrow was definitely mopey. Azzarello's WW run was light years better.

    I don't know if this question has already been asked, but I get the feeling that this story will be easy enough to ignore going forward, right? Because I mean, prior to Johns' reveal of three...

    I would be totally down for this. Goddess of Truth vs. the Ultimate Manipulator.

    God, now I really want to see WW1984.

    Venom's weird tongue was not an improvement upon the character visually at all.

    Norman was more interesting as a dead villain than a resurrected one.

    Zendaya's MJ is the most interesting...

    With the notable exception of Clark's parents being back, I agree. It's a big exception, but I haven't come by anything else, either.

    Honestly, yours are probably more accurate. I did a surface level search at best, admittedly. That said, while I can see Gordon making up to $200,000, I have a hard time seeing any non-elected city...

    I get that impression, too. My problem with Tynion is that there's always a whole lot of bluster, but without much substance.
