    It’s an Earth, “Earth-Alpha”, that alongside Earth Omega where Darkseid Is, has taken Earth 0’s (mainline Earth) place at the center of the Multiverse. Beyond that we know nothing except an Elseworld series was on the list of upcoming series which have all come true.

    And Taylor and PKJ have been forced to continue that rejected status quo, regardless of how unpopular and frankly toxic it is


    It’s doubling down on failure and PKJ is paying for it dearly...because unlike Tom Taylor...PKJ doesn’t have a brand.
    Yeah, PKJ basically never had a chance. If he were at a later point in his career when he is more popular (assuming he becomes succcessful), then maybe... but the combo of unknown writer + aged-up Jon is too much.

    The big name writer perk doesn't exist anymore. That PKJ is a smaller name than Taylor means absolutely nothing in today's climate. Whatever hurdles this run may have, Johnson not being a noted name isn't going to hurt him today like it might have ten years ago.

    This all sounds alright so far. The Omega reveal was disappointing just because I'm burned out with Darkseid right now, but we'll see what Alpha is.

    I hope you're right and it isn't a hurdle, because I already like Johnson more than Taylor

    Disagree. As bad as Bendis left it, sales would be better if a Snyder or Johns were writing. And while Taylor isn't at that level, he too will likely outsell PKJ.

    I agree that bigger name would sell better, but at the same time I doubt it would be radically different. Suppose Taylor increases sales by 10%, does it fundamentally change anything? I think that to make things different we'd need to triple current sales.

    I really enjoyed the Annual he wrote for Arthur way back when, wouldn’t mind him writing an Aquaman run some day. But it’s nice seeing Arthur and Clark team up, he rarely hangs out with the non-Trinity JL members in his book.

    The new logo for Action Comics threw me off for a bit but honestly it looks great.
    Does it need doing?
    Yes.
    Then it will be done.

    Can’t beat the classic but it’s a nice update, and I think we were all expecting them to add “Superman” to the title again.

    "Superman" is understated with the way that they "inked" it, so it works for me. It is a good update.

    Yes.
