    Snyder can be an excellent writer but as a line-wide ideas man for DC, he's even worse than Geoff Johns (again, good writer; didn't love many of his line-wide ideas).
    Oh believe me, I'm hardly buying anything.


    And as to the Tynion thing, he's definitely a more competent storyteller than Snyder (who has gone completely off the rails), but he is an apprentice of Snyder , so all of his storytelling ideas seem to be early Snyder-lite in all the worst ways.
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    I enjoy Tynion's work but sometimes he can bog down an issue with too much exposition (which is definitely a Snyder trait) and not pace things out as well as he could.

    She also wrote issues 13-23 of Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows (i.e. the post-timeskip issues), the Spider-Girls mini that served as a coda to it, and the current Doctor Who comics starring the female Thirteenth Doctor.

    She also wrote the Supergirl: Becoming Super mini I think. I liked that.

    I think she's said she's the ongoing writer (but this being DC, that could be short-lived).

    She didn’t write Becoming Super but I think she wrote Mother Panic.

    Would it be overly cynical or too close to the truth to say DC is intentionally putting out a whole lot of terrible stories to steer fans toward accepting a complete reboot of everything?

    I'll buy Doomsday Clock and lament what might have been. The rest of this is on a fast track to nowhere.

    She co-wrote with Orlando on the last few issues of his run.
    And despite the crappy art in the beginning, that was the only Super book I liked in Rebirth, so I'm hoping she picks up where they left off.

    Yeah, the whole Year of the Villain event looks really stupid and gimmicky. The Harley Quin one-shot has the POTENTIAL to be really fun, though. I mean, a villain awards show? That's gonna be entertaining. I once thought of a story that was kind of similar to that concept.

    And seriously? Ric Grayson is STILL A THING?? Its been over a year, hasn't it?

    To be honest, I look at that Harley one-shot and I can't help but think "I thought she wasn't a villainy anymore?" .
