    Agreed. I feel like things would've been far better without the forced inclusion of Bruce and the out of nowhere appearance of Diana. And the finale seemed completely pointless and off too, outside...

    Sticky: So only the first issue (out of 3) is out but...

    So only the first issue (out of 3) is out but right now I'm gonna throw "Superman Smashes the Klan" into the ring.

    It's an adaptation of a story that ran in the 40's radio serial. It's set in the...

    I just read Smashes the Klan, and.....you know how at the end of the school year when the teacher would offer some extra credit and you had to do it, and knock it out of the park to pass, because you...

    Yeah you're kind of a freak like that. :p

    Kidding! You know I love ya, man!



    I mean.....it's not like Jon is *random.* We're not talking Luke Fox here. Jon *is* the clear and present heir...

    Finally got to the LCS today (been a month or so). And this......

    F*ck yeah.

    This was everything I wanted it to be and more. This is the kind of Superman story I dream about. In all my posts...

    Is anyone else starting to get a "Funeral For A Friend" vibe here?

    We've got the big huge, status quo changing story. Then we've got the little tie-in specials exploring how the world reacts to...

    That's all it is. It's Clark and his co-workers in the League, and then everyone that Bendis is handling. We've got YJ in there, pretty sure I saw Naomi and the Wonder Twins too.

    This isn't...

    I gotta catch up with the book, now that Kaldur is in it. And if KSD is just giving him some quiet, character building moments instead of big giant splash pages (pardon the pun) then great. That's...

    DC has tried to bring new readers into the direct market. So has everyone else. It doesn't work. Not to the degree it needs to. You think publishers haven't been trying this for decades, ever since...

    Ah, okay. Hell, that's easy to answer.

    First off, it doesnt look like DC is giving up completely on the direct market. They need us to keep buying while they find new distribution avenues that...

    So, time machines, Phantom Zone projectors, and weapons of cosmic destruction all make sense (as does hair color changing glasses?) but this is going too far? Okay, got it.

    Then we can just...
  12. Please, its not like we're talking about...

    Please, its not like we're talking about re-naming Wallace something like "Clark" or "Bruce." How many people even know there *is* a Rudy in the West family? Are there any big heroes at DC named...

    If a book like Outsiders fails, DC is likely to consider it a failing of the other characters, perhaps the creative team, or just bad timing in a dying, over-saturated market.

    But if you want to...

    On top of what Yoda said, this also appears to be a fairly recent decision. I mean, DC has been poking at those other distribution models for years now, but if this is indeed a new, heavy push, it's...

    If Diana competes in the contest, then she absolutely has to be on the same level as the other Amazons. Otherwise it's not a contest and her victory is cheap. Like me beating a six year old at a game...

    Oh I dropped Nightwing a long time ago. The last issues I bought were Percy's Motorcycle Death Race issues (I have flipped through the newer stuff at the store, but haven't bought them). Which I...

    I dont think the monthlies are the main concern anymore. The direct market is dying, and has been for years and years. All effort to save it either ends in total failure or short-term gains that...

    If its canon that Krypton has a much higher gravity than earth does, yes. In the same way that a human can leap great distances on the moon due to lower gravity, Kryptonians should be far stronger on...

    Eh, I think this is only an issue with us hardcore fans.

    For one thing, you can fix the whole problem with three words; "Kryptonian tech lenses." Clark's glasses fudge the details on cameras, so...

    Agreed. And the direct market continues to choke to death, so it's imperative that the company find new readers, which won't be found in the LCS.

    If I had to guess I'd say that they're trying to...

    No, they'll push young Jon in the YA books and the Ink imprint (or Zoom or whatever they're calling it now) and maybe a cartoon or something, but the audience for the mainline floppies is very...

    If your point is that Clark still has to clock into work the next day and can't abandon his duties to earth so he can process his emotions after taking a life, then yeah I agree with that. I imagine...

    I'm not sure why we're hearing all this buzz about mangas. They've been taking over for a long time while the direct market continues to slide downhill. This is nothing new (really just business as...

    But that has nothing to do with what you were saying. You talked about how they were new characters who got big. And they did. Decades ago. New characters showing up *today* struggle a lot more. The...

    I'm in the same boat. The biggest issue with the Wallys is now OG Wally's weird place in the continuity and that's easy enough to fix just by re-inserting his history and everyone's memories of him...
