    Although we're very early going I think there's room to posit that. We've recently lost JLC and Supersons but we're still gaining big time. It's been like 35 years since we've seen these types of spinoffs in play and these are some of the biggest modern creators.

    I didn't want to go to the store tomorrow because it's out of my way, but I guess I have to

    I've never realized up to now how much the current Super-verse is different from the previous relaunches - the first ones which come to my mind are the Loeb/Kelly era and the New Krypton era. Those were event-driven, plot-driven and revamp-driven (I mean, they revamped old Super-concepts). But the Bendis era seems to be entirely character-driven. What really counts are the characters - Supes, Lois, Jimmy, even Jor-El and Jon. There are storylines, of course, but everything is in service of the characters. The downside is that a character like Rogol Zaar so far doesn't fit, because we don't know his motivations and his story yet.
    As for the settings, they are very secondary in regard to the characters. With few exceptions, like the Phantom Zone. On the other hand, Krypton is very basic, almost mundane (there are also very earthly bathrooms!) and Metropolis is more focused on the aesthetics rather than its peculiarities. But I'd say that it is a very precise stylistic choice.
    It's an unusual approach - at least to me, since a redesign of Metropolis is an old obsession of mine - but so far it has been working, apparently (with some minor flaws, of course). If they'll do a Superman movie reboot one day, this is where they could refer to for the characters' voices.
    Educational town, Rolemodel city and Moralofthestory land are the places where good comics go to die.

    DC writers and editors looked up and shouted "Save us!"
    And Alan Moore looked down and whispered "No."
