Maybe you just don't like super hero comics and should just start reading Guy Delisle travelougue comics instead.

The concept of multiple Deadpool characters is a parody of shit like Superwomanboydog.

although Deadpool Corps uses multiple dimensions, so if it is a "parody" it is a weak one. Hell, this must mean you think Exiles is the worst book, ever.

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.

Superboy #1

I love Superboy. I loved him in YJ and while I wasn't keen on Johns' handling of him in Teen Titans the revelation of his 'parentage' adds an interesting angle to the Teen of steel. (People call him that right?) His original ongoing was a nice little book that I've dipped in and out of, and this could be an interesting follow-up. Fair warning: I'm gonna use the word 'nice' a lot here.

I'm coming at the title blind, but I like the supporting cast and I like Kon trying to have a normal life for a little while. I don't like Krypto though, never have. Putting these prejudices aside for a minute I thought this comic was a pretty good one. Nice use of Superboy's powers, nice internal monologue and I'm never sad to see the Phantom Stranger.

The art is nice. It doesn't stand out as blindingly good but the use of Jamie Grant's colours make the whole package reminiscent of a more down-to-Earth All Star Superman and that's as fine a compliment as a Superman title can get.

A nice little package. A lot of things I like with a solid writer and a not-terrible artist. One to watch I think.

1935, Las Vegas. Who are the Vassals of the Morningstar? What do they want with Skinner Sweet? And who do they consider to be "the most dangerous vampire in the world"? Don't miss the penultimate chapter of "Devil in the Sand," and see why critics are going crazy for this can't-miss new Vertigo series.

Actually Jude it's really good. If you can be bothered to track down the first two issues in this story (#'s 6 & 7)it's a good book. The current arc is a bit gangstery, a bit wild westy and a bit vampire conspiracy-y. I can appreciate not liking it if you're not a fan of mature readers books but it's been Vertigo's best new title for some time. I'm looking forward to a discussion and I hate everything.
