    I’ve thankfully erased all the details from my mind…but I actually wondered at time if Rick was angry with DC over something or other and was deliberately making the comic crap…in my view it was so different from his usual quality.
    God yeah. Truly HORRIBLE.
    The Lady of the Lake and the Thirst.
    I was SO happy when that idea was eventually dropped.
    The artwork wasn't particularly great either...

    He basically shat upon everything PAD had done over the previous 3 years - from introducing new characters no one asked for (like, a lot of them) and giving them too much page time, to making Mera a cheater... it was just bad. The two writers also had a very public feud going at the time, so there are conspiracy theories to be mined, if that's your thing. Before Larsen the book was selling well, but he drove it down to cancellation numbers. When Jurgens & Epting came on, it was too late; even though there was an uptick, it wasn't enough to save it.

    Just start repeatedly singing BARNEY song repeatedly out loud and everything else will vanish from your mind.
    "I love you, you love me
    We're a happy family
    With a great big hug
    And a kiss from me to you
    Won't you say you love me too?

    I love you, you love me
    We're best friends like friends should be
    With a great big hug
    And a kiss from me to you
    Won't you say you love me too?

    It’s worked.

    Now I just need to remember not to look at the earlier post…the one that troubled me before the mind wipe.
