I can't believe you classified this as a "stinker". I could see it not being one's cup of tea, but man, in no way would I go that low. Of course that's keeping in mind that I pretty much loved it on all points.
It could have been better. It was boring and there was virtually nothing going on other then a long conversation with Superman. And I'm sorry but Supermans Costume has to change because its ugly and lets face it artists arent gonna wanna draw all that. It actually reminds of the flair from Office Space.
Then theres a long talk about "events of the past year." What events? They dont even talk about them. It was too talk heavy for a first issue. Of course it got going at the end but by then I didnt care anymore.
