I'm a Morrison fan-boy and I'm enjoying his Action run so far, but it's not the best book of the relaunch or IMO an equal trade for Batman Inc. If it was all Gene Ha or somebody else amazing or if Rags Morales had the time to really bring it, I may be less wary about continuing to buy this series in floppy full price form. Next month has Fialkov on the Steel back-up, so that's good news.


I'm trade-waiting this because of the $4 cover price, even with the coming back-up stories by JHF.

And before anyone says anything, I don't care whether or not the cost of the trade is more than the single issue cover prices, I'm not gonna pay full price for the trade.

There are points with the ridiculously unnatural dialogue that make me wonder if Morrison's writing it to spite DC for f :evil: :evil: king up his Batman story.
