    I think Routh's Superman is going to end up sacrificing himself so Hoechlin doesn't. So he can have the life with Tulloch's Lois & their child that Routh was denied with Kate Bosworth. The way...

    I think Bendis’ decision to make Jor El indirectly responsible for the destruction of Krypton is a complete character assignation of Jor El. Instead of being the person who tragically couldn’t save...

    to make him indirectly responsible for the destruction of Krypton undermines not only Kryptons destruction but kinda poisons Superman’s role in the whole universe. He’s the son of the person who...

    They are selling about what I’d expect for the market. I don’t claim they are some raging success. They are doing well in the context. I don’t claim they are some revelation and line saving couple.it...

    Leviathan is a miniseries. Not a line wide crossover. It’s not Doomed. I think you’re projecting about the rest. As for their importance, Lois and Clark are the founding characters of DC Comics. That...

    So then it's a wash. SMWW failed. Bendis "failed". Though he's selling better in a worse comic market, so arguably he's doing better. He also hasn't had any major crossovers to boost his sales. SMWW...
  7. It's marketable because it's a male/female...

    It's marketable because it's a male/female superhero set. Not because it's some grand statement about love and marriage. And the market for that type of stuff just isn't significant compared to the...

    If it has fans around the world, they don't buy comics. Because it seems like most comic reader don't care about it (or any ship) at all actually. As sales of all the books, including SMWW show, the...

    It's relaunching with new #1's, 24 pages of new content instead of 12, and are no longer Walmart exclusive. The last exclusive issue will be Superman Giant #16 I believe to close out King's run next...

    That's more a Bendis quirk than anything. He writes dialogue like that to try to make it more natural apparently. While people do have a tendency to occasionally repeat back questions like that, he...

    It doesn't look like Pak got over 50K except during Doomed. It was in the low 40's before Doomed, spiked into the mid-50's, but was at like high 30's by like issue 37 or so.

    Superman under Johns...

    Naomi became a speculator darling though, in no small part to the fact that people are assuming she'll be the next Miles Morales. There was about a week where the Action Comics 1003 variant was...

    If they are going to get rid of the trunks, I think they need to do something with the blue to break it up more. Even a larger belt doesn't quite work. I liked the Smallville Season 11 costume quite...

    I

    I meant the praise here and in this thread. I’m not going to waste time proving such an obvious point. Purporting to support any kind of “equality” and championing Miller doesn’t track at all.
  15. Half the praise for this is based solely on...

    Half the praise for this is based solely on shipping and nothing else. Otherwise the cognitive dissonance of championing a pairing as some bastion of “equality” and praising Frank “Holy Terror”...

    I picked up the Superman of Smallville & Super Sons books for my kids and read them both. They were pretty good. I liked Smallville more, it’s goofy fun. But it skewed way younger than I thought,...

    There's definitely some moral high ground when we're talking about the guy behind Holy Terror. I'm sorry, that's just not the same as writing comics you like or dislike. Miller isn't controversial...

    It'd be kinda funny if Bendis ends up having him still walk around as Clark Kent half the time and people still not recognize him.

    I wasn't even talking about sales. I know he sells. DKII sold and it's terrible. ASB&R sold and its even worse. DKIII sold well with Marvel level variant covers (200 for a 9 issue series), and one of...

    What relevance does he have? He gets mixed reviews at best. Half of his output in the last two decades is looked at at some of the worst comics published in that time frame. People complain about...

    Oh, I know the marketing is all BS. They like to pretend that he's still relevant. I do find it obnoxious that he has seemingly gotten a pass for the disgusting Holy Terror and they pretend he didn't...

    I'm a little disappointed actually. I think the set up with Lois and him knowing about Superman was pretty interesting. So it's the lost potential there I think is a missed opportunity. I also hoped...

    Miller's decades past his prime. He doesn't have any real influence on anything anymore. But the idea that his ideas are bold, new or carry any of the influence that his 80's work does is a joke. His...

    Bold and new? Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman did this 25 years ago with Miracle Man. And probably with half the sexual assaults.
