I just wasn't aware critically acclaimed Jeff Lemire wrote like a relic from 30 years ago. If I had known that, I'd have checked out his work sooner. :P

People bitch endlessly about Claremont being past his prime and writing hokey x-men stories. In fact, your Superboy review reads like many a review of X-Men Forever :P

I never made those accusations! In fact, I seem to remember saying one issue wasn't that bad.

No it isn't. Liking things that are hokey and corny is called "ironically awesome" and is the hallmark of the hipster. Not liking those things is called taste.


I don't think that people who like Superboy are doing it ironically, it's not like he's from the Silver-Age, he's from like 1992, which is too recent to be 'hokey'. And his current incarnation is even more recent, if he was still in his leather jacket, round shades and fade haircut, then maybe you'd have a point, but there's nothing ironic about Superboy post-Johns.

Krypto has been in loads of comics ever since he came back, he's popular, he had his own cartoon for kids, are those children hipsters?

My vitrol is more entertaining (and more honest) than yours.
I think this is just payback for writing that glowing Earth One review. The Marvel Fanboy in you has been ill for days.

I'm honored to be in such excellent company. But this isn't about animal characters, I could give a shit less about that. It's about taking a popular concept, Superman, and creating various versions of Superman, but one's a girl, and one's a boy, and one's a fucking dog. A fucking dog, man.

And the name Superboy is just kinda pedoerotic in any case.
