Also, you're one to talk about selling something for more than it's worth, Mister Speculator!

Yes, well luckily you don't get to decide what's worth what in the world of comics!

I'd rather read Grant Morrison's commentary on a comic than the actual comics of most writers.


Everyone gets to decide what's worth what to them. That's the whole point. :lol:

Yeah, but in a thread specifically for Action Comics discussion, you are going on about how Image Comics is a better value, etc. How about you make a separate thread for that?

Back to the matter at hand, I loved this issue. Whereas Morrison soured me on Batman completely, he's made me Superman fan to the point that I will read this as long as he's on board and I will pick up the Superman title once Giffen takes over.

Because Punchy likes to chat with me, I guess. And I'll post wherever I feel like it. When someone is responding to me about what I said an hour and a half ago and the conversation wasn't including you, was is it to you anyway? Did you miss the part about the writer we're talking about writing upcoming backup stories for Action Comics? How about you take your douchey attitude elsewhere? :roll:

It was just a suggestion. I'm not trying to pick a fight with you.

It's just that we were clearly done talking about that, at the beginning of the thread a couple hours ago. And when Punchy is asking me to justify what I was saying at the time, it's hardly "going on about it". I was just offering up a comparison anyway.

But everyone here seems to want to decide what other people should or shouldn't post today, I guess.

Um...ok. I thought this was about as good as a Superman book could get (All-Star Superman not withstanding). I'm in for the long haul. My only hope is that Morales can keep up, but that's not looking promising.

Brent Anderson filled in some pages in this issue. Supposedly he will be the alternating artist for this series.

If he is a regular back-up, I've got no problem with that at all.

career artwork it is not. Rags is not bringing any thing good to this book right now. Identity Crisis was so much better looking than this book. Also I liked the Braniac tease.

I'm interested to see how this ties into 'present day' superman and how his personality will end up being different because of his world introduction. A lot of the 52 books seem like the same stuff with little things here and there changed just to try and shake off the burden of continuity, but Superman actually seem pretty different.

Action-wise it's cool. But his dialogue seems like it's straight out of the 60's Batman TV series - and not from any of the good parts, either.

Something like "Sure, officer I'll put him down...just as soon as he makes a full confession. To someone who still believes the law works the same for rich and poor alike. Because that ain't Superman." sounded really clunky and forced. It came off as being a little more pretentious than earnest, which Supes really needs to sound a little more like.

Now, maybe that was a little intentional, with Supes supposedly acting more detached and alien, but it just came off sounding fake.

I like Morrison's Batman better. His Bruce isn't as much of an @$$, but still has a touch of the Batd!ckery in him. He has a bit of a trickster in him too. You see that when he's out and about as Bruce, or like when he was spreading rumors about himself online.

Never been a huge fan of Superman, this is the only new 52 book that I am reading and I am really enjoying it.

I think this looks better than Identity Crisis, but that may be because the story is 10 times better.
