    I was thinking about that since Bendis posted poster for 28th issue.
    I'm curious, who will write next. Maybe Waid?

    Hypo, when CBR posts the solicits, change the link. I got told off for using Comics Continuum's solicits page last month.

    yes! i really hated this run. Hopefully in january there will be a different writer on action and on superman. He has 2 books, it helps to have options if I don't like one of them.

    Oh no. How dreadful. Just awful. /sarcasm

    I'm hoping whoever gets it next fixes all the stuff Bendis broke. Like the age-up, Lois and Clark being indifferent at best parents, the identity reveal, erasing Rogol Zar, making the Legion Clark's, etc.

    This.

    And I say this as someone who really wanted to like Bendis' run. I enjoyed a lot of his previous works, but this didn't do it for me except for a few moments here and there.

    I enjoyed Bendis’ run on the books but I’m excited for new creative teams as well. Be a dream come true for me if Jeff Loveness and Gene Yang got the books. I’d also take Matt Fraction on Superman or Action.

    Bendis entire run screams soft reboot on the horizon. Getting rid of his SI? Yeah, there was no way that was sticking around. My only question is, was this the new management or was this in the works prior to the firings?

    The plan was initially for Jon to take over as Superman for 5G with Luke Fox Batman.

    I've enjoyed Bendis' run more than most. I think it had a ton of good ideas with pretty consistently muddled or rushed execution that shot itself in the foot more times than not. I think if a lot of his ideas had been better developed through the characters instead of just rushing through plot points to get to other plot points this could have been an amazing run. The status quo itself I think is probably one of the better ones for a modern context and I'd like that to continue.

    I'd like to see Tom Taylor or Gene Luen Yang take over. Or Fraction. Waid not so much.

    So then they REALLY have no reason to keep the Bendis stuff now.

    I've been so far from anything comic related, and this is where I thought I was gonna be excited to jump back in. But weirdly, I feel sorry that I left Bendis so far behind. To stick out over 60 issues and pull off some of the better ideas, I'm really going to respect and invest in the end of this chapter.

    THANK GOD! One of the worst Superman runs ever! But I'm already feeling sorry for the poor sod with the ungrateful task of cleaning up the mess he's going to leave behind.

    A few things I don't like will probably be undone. Jon probably won't, but I 'll hold out a slim hope he's erased to oblivion until there's no reason to hope anymore. But how they go about fixing the lore I have no idea. Its more broken now than its ever been.
