He writes in a style these days with 4 layers of subtext that demands to be reread, but it's so boring I can't bring myself to rereading it.
    This is the controversial opinions thread, not statement of fact thread :P

    ....

    I agree with your controversial opinion.

    I've never considered any of Snyder's writing heavy with subtext. Snyder beats you over the dang head with his stories. Lots of overtext I guess.

    I don't enjoy the Dark Knight Returns. Maybe it's the art style but I just don't enjoy it.

    I agree with Snyder/Duke about Batman not needing a robin but i would clarify and say he needs what the mantle represents than the mantle itself.

    "most" of DC's big writers these days are over rated.
    Bendis makes up his own comic logic, and then acts like it's totally normal.
    Synder is just a mess of ideas,thrown together, and barely staying coherent
    King makes every character a emotional mess,and they all need help by a shrink when he writes them

    Snyder tends to catch my attention and then lose me fairly quickly. I liked JL at first and will probably go and catch up on some of the trades when they are out, but reading it in installments got boring. the first Eternal was just ok. Lost interest after the first couple trades of his Batman. Metal was silly.

    I'm fine with Bendis on the Super books. I don't care that much if Jon gets de-aged or not. He nails Clark's voice, and is allowing set up for Jimmy and Lois getting their own books. Dude's alright in my book.

    This isn't controversial, it's one of my go-tos for rewatching. Just watched it again a couple nights ago.

    My controversial DC opinion: Of Nolan's Batman trilogy, I liked The Dark Knight the least.

    Dark Knight is ludicrously overhyped

    Excluding the whole mess with Jon, I'll take Bendis's wacky comic logic over the current direction DC is heading in.

    That's exactly why I stopped reading JL. There was so much going on, which isn't always a turn off for me but in that book it was. The art was beautiful though.

    Snyder is trying way too hard to be epic with JL. He's so focused on having an 'epic and deep run that changes everything' that he's forgotten that a story actually needs competent writing.

    That's pretty much my complaint with MOST comic writing now. Every story out there has to 'CHANGE EVERYTHING FOREVER!!!' and there isn't much of a status quo to change anything FROM anymore.. It's just event after event after shocking death and shocking resurrection

    As they put it on Supernatural years back... "It's not really jumping the shark if you never come back down..."

    It's hilarious how bad it is. Serious contender for one of the worst things I have ever read.
