    I feel that often fights are the opposite of moving the plot forward. They can seriously slow things down and feel shoehorned in. Here the plot flows really well and I feel it is moving the story...

    The show has always had a rotating cast. They sometimes write people off to change the dynamics and add fresh characters to the show. Sometimes it's the cast members choice to leave (Firestorm,...

    See, I was thinking the Earth 3 stuff never happened. Jor-El decided that he needed to mold Jon to become a certain type of hero and used Black Kryptonite and planted false memory to create a clone...

    Kami Garcia seems to be getting more work with DC as well. Nothing ongoing yet, but the Raven graphic novel has done very well and she's got a Black Label thing coming soon.

    That's true. There hasn't been much cultivation of new talent on the ongoing front. More the old stand-bys and people they pouched from Marvel. Feels like Joshua Williamson is the closest they have...

    I have been reading Arthur in Hemsworth's voice since this run began. I'm loving it. I didn't realize I could get this excited about an Aquaman run. The character work and the pacing have been...

    Dressing up pirates in stereotypical garb is not expediency. A generic look is expediency. This was clearly done with specificity in mind. And you can't give Miller the benefit of the doubt due to...

    What Kirby knows is irrelevant since that Lori suggestion would rewrite the story. It's not about keeping people from saying critical things. It's to make Lori an actual interesting character and not...

    Definitely. Having both Lori and Clark as Navel Recruits hiding their true selves and abilities would create an actual meaningful for connection, instead of "win me, win me".

    You realize the base is in America, right? Near San Diego. We're pretty far from the African coast and Somalia. And Somali pirates don't all dress in one uniform way that fit the stereotypical look...

    Agreed. Miller doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room for interpretation here. Denying the problematic nature of that scene is really to be in denial.

    There literally was no seen female character in this issue that wasn't threatened with sexual violence at some point. And of course while Pa Kent got mentioned a few times, Ma wasn't mentioned once.

    Welp, I've said it before and I'll say it again, Frank Miller sucks at writing women. Geez, how'd this Islamaphobic, sexist nonsense make it past editorial?

    Scott Snyder has shown interest in doing exactly that. And Snyder is certainly in a position to make something like that happen.

    You can't base character growth and development on things we didn't see. That's bad storytelling. It's like Bendis just wanted to hit fast forward on Jon's character and that's one of the things that...
