His runs on pretty much everything he wrote before the new 52 are well worth reading good sir.

Especially Supergirl. :smt102

Dammit, Thanos!

Don't trifle with us!

I read the "Lobdell fired from Teen Titans", and my heart started beating fast, and I ran halfway downstairs to dig out my old TT trades and blast Rush's "Bastille Day" over the record player. Or phonograph. Whatever the hip retro media thing is today.

Your joke really wasn't funny. Maybe you should take a one day timeout to reflect.

Supergirl was a fun book beginning with the Superwoman arc until the untimely end. It costarred Kimio in the last few issues.

Where's Herald? I think Doombug is attacking Kimio.

If you don't like Supergirl and you don't like Kimio, there's a forum on CBR that would love to have you. Participation in the Outhousers Information Experience requires a certain minimum culture level that I'm afraid that Kimio-haters can never achieve. And if you don't love Kimio, you hate her. I'm sorry. I didn't make God's Laws, I just enforce them. :smt011

Yeah, that was a real piece of work on Thanoscopter's part.

I think he finally went too far.

Maybe he'd prefer living in Iran, where Lobdell is considered trendy.

I just praised his Supergirl run. Wtf? :lol: :smt017

Also I can't see this "herald" person you speak of, are you sure he's not a figment of your imagination? :drunk

Get mah gun, boy! (Too bad I can't find a pick of that redneck from "The Critic" to give that quote more context.)

Agreed. This may be their attempt to "lighten the mood". Maybe they think they're poking fun at themselves, when really they're just pouring salt on wounds they inflicted on other people.

Probably another example of DC being tone deaf.

Heh, probably a way for Lobdell to schmooze up to his superiors. Basically he's saying, "I love it here. I'm not going anywhere."

Never trust a corporate employee. In my work group, there are a couple of guys who regularly organize funky outings on weekends or after work. The outings are always announced out of the blue, as if the idea was spontaneous.

Then, later on, I realize that our manager reports these outings to her boss to demonstrate that our group is happily engaged with team building activities. No doubt these guys' "spontaneous happy hours" and weekend go-karting events are done to help their end-of-year performance management score. Then, we have another person who is out of the blue always bringing in cookies and candy--but is relatively unfriendly to you unless you're in a position of power.

Never trust a corporate. Lobdell is simply goose-stepping the corporate parade field to basic-needs paradise.

Hey I'm a corporate employee and I constantly bring in donuts or cookies. I just like sharing. :smt102

I worked a grocery store for over 8.5 years. As time wore on, employees were moved from my departments (Dairy/Frozen), and we kept getting auto-shipped stuff we didn't need. Stuff became a freakin' mess, and that's not even getting into the 8 months of hell under a certain person's rule. Every so often, employees would take these surveys on computers, so you'd think we could inform the higher-ups about the problems we were having.

NYET!

The survey questions were all multiple-choice, and dealt with local, in-store or in-department conditions. The questions didn't allow you to point out problems were coming from higher above one's pay-grade, or even above your own manager.

While I'm all for playing Devil's Advocate when necessary, there's always the basic human fact that people don't like admitting when they're wrong, ESPECIALLY if they're in a position of a authority.

I think he knows that and he’s saying he hasn’t been on any worthwhile books since the relaunch.
