    No trailer yet. Nor do I think we're getting one for at least a year.

    John was firmly in the "Black Best Friend" role during Kyle's era, unfortunately. In the comics, John's real time to shine was the 80s and early 90s. Everything after that has been slim pickings from...

    CBR Forums aren't necessarily reflective of all online geek forums. There's a lot less goobers and trolls.

    This isn't to say we are without goobers, but we have somewhat less than you'll find on...

    Like I mentioned, John's military background certainly gives him some extra layers, and retconning it away isn't an option as John's popularity largely stems from McDuffie's John from JLU. However, I...

    But if you remove it, all the JLU fans will cry foul. And since that's where most of his fanbase comes from, they're stuck with it.

    There's no way Hal's making it out of this issue without getting bitten. That's how these things work. You take out the Big Guns first to raise the stakes. And it always...always comes down to the...

    And now Alan Scott is being retconned into an FBI agent for the TV show. So that's 3 military vets, and 3 cops among the 7 Earth GLs. That's just a failure of imagination. And it's not that I didn't...

    The disparity between the covers and the actual content of what's in the GL book has been a problem for a loooooong time. It's why I was so hesitant to get the GL Annual, because Hal being on the...

    I think John's marine background gives him some extra layers, but I just wish that there wasn't so much uniformity to the Earth GLs. Hal Jordan is a military veteran. John is a military veteran. Jo...

    The whole Aquaman plotline was a repudiation of pretty much everything that had happened to the character between 1977 and 2008.

    With Aquaman 2 looking to give some love to his short-lived camouflage costume, I figured it deserved being included.

    I once played dumb with a buddy of mine asking about Injustice. I lent them my Justice TPBs instead and he ended up liking it a lot more. ;)

    Yes, the cost of the show outweighed the number of viewers it had, and it didn't have enough viewers because not enough people thought it was good enough to keep watching.

    That's how big budget...

    New Frontier, along with All Star Superman, have been the best gateway drugs for getting me hooking people into comics.

    Oh, it's a great story for new or casual readers. Particularly with the one-two punch of this and Kingdom Come.

    A lot of the plot choices seemed too specifically aimed at criticizing specific stuff Ross doesn't like for my tastes. I think it holds up as a pretty gripping all-hands-on-deck JLA story, but it's...

    I really dug Hal's arc in Justice, even if a lot of that story felt like Alex Ross yelling from his porch about all the creative choices made by DC since 1976.

    The stick has been so firmly stuck up his ass for so long, being dour and serious has become John's default personality. It would be nice to see him relax. Granted, the demands of sci-fi adventure...

    No worries. You did mangle what I was saying a little though. My point is that these characters were originally designed for children and even though the readership has aged far beyond what was...

    I think Bendis's Justice League is suffering from lazy writing, but it's not even close to the level of stank that Robinson pooped out with Cry for Justice.

    You want me to spoil the issue for you?

    No.

    Go buy it and read it yourself. It's great and this book needs all the readers it can get.

    Y The Last Man worked for me because it balanced out the darkness of the dystopian setting by making our protagonist this likeable but completely useless manchild having misadventures, whereas the...
